WoW Confidential

World of Warcraft Guides and Discussion

The best way to make gold in World of Warcraft usually falls under professions and crafting. However opportunities and niches arise in the auction house when an items demand surpasses the supply which causes that item to either go out of stock or spike in price.

This has occured recently on my server with Iceweb Spider Silk. The price has gone up from an average of 4g to 10g each for an entire week as it is used in crafting Brilliant Spellthread which has gone up in demand since patch 3.3 hit.

Due to this increase in price it has brought the opportunity cost of going out to farm it high enough (800g/hour) that it is worth my time. It has become more profitable than some of my other gold making activities aside from Inscription. I combine farming and Luke’s methods to get the most gold an hour.

This is a great method to earn gold if you do not yet have professions or have ones that don’t earn that much gold, anyone can go out and farm at this spot.

Results in 15 minutes of farming

19 Iceweb Spider Silks at 9g each = 171g
Selling Greys = 22g
D/E 1 green = 15g
Total = 208g in 15 minutes

60/15 = 4 runs an hour = 832g/hr

Addons used in the video

    @cencredas look at the last part of the article, they are listed there

    @Barrakk That would take a lot of time to go on every server, just visit your auction house and if the price of iceweb spider silks are greater than 3g each then it’s probably worth it to go farm

    @Timothy cool, send me a mail or send me a message to Skelebones
