Maybe you are trying for world first at a gathering skill. Maybe you just want to farm for the first week to make an absolute killing selling herbs and ores on the auction house to all of the power levelers looking for server first in their profession. We all know that Cataclysm ores and Cataclysm Herbs will be selling for lucrative prices during the first weeks. I myself had already planned to do nothing but farm and post for at least the first week. There never is a better time to make gold from farming than during the first weeks of a new expansion.
Are you ready for the Cataclysm Gold Rush?
Farming isually the lowest gold/per hour method of all the ways to make gold in WoW. Once every few years, things get a little interesting. When Wrath of the Lich King went live, the Cobalt was selling for 200g/stack. Saronite for 300-400g, Titanium for 1k+, and all the herbs for 100-500g/stack.
This time around, due to the inflation of Gold in WoW, expect to see 500g/stack and up for even the lowest ores and herbs. That’s 5k/hour, even if you only get get 10 stacks. And if you were one of the first people to sell the new items, well... You would really have it made!
What if you had complete Farming Maps for all the Cataclysm Zones on launch day? You would definitely be one of the first and main sellers right?
Make A Game Plan
Anyone serious about trying for any server first or raking in the gold from farming needs to have a game plan. You will not succeed without prior knowledge and a pre-planned route or strategy. One of the problems I was going to have was understanding the new high level zones. I wasn't lucky enough to get into beta, so I have seen next to nothing from within the new zones. This would put me at a great disadvantage as players with Beta experience would be able to complete quests and create farming routes and strategies much better than I could. That was until I was contacted by Ryan from Cataclysm Mastery. He offered me a sneak peak into his new blog / membership site that is specifically focused on all the knowledge and secrets I had been missing out on from Beta.
Cataclysm Mastery System
After reviewing the site, I was compelled to share this opportunity with my readers at Cold's Gold Factory. I am going to be using his system as it gave me exactly what I was looking for - Pre-mapped routes for farming the new zones. His site also goes over tons of helpful information. Just some of the great topics:
