This is good news for us gold makers as it means there’s now more opportunity for us to turn a profit. Sure, some items have been nerfed and others are no longer in great demand, but despite these fluctuating market changes, the Warcraft economy remains largely unchanged.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section transparent_background=”off” background_color=”#f7f7f4″ allow_player_pause=”off” inner_shadow=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on” custom_padding=”0px|0px|54px|0px” padding_mobile=”off” make_fullwidth=”off” use_custom_width=”off” width_unit=”off” custom_width_px=”1080px” custom_width_percent=”80%” make_equal=”off” use_custom_gutter=”off” fullwidth=”off” specialty=”off” admin_label=”section” disabled=”off”][et_pb_row make_fullwidth=”off” use_custom_width=”off” width_unit=”off” custom_width_px=”1080px” custom_width_percent=”80%” use_custom_gutter=”off” gutter_width=”3″ custom_padding=”0px|0px|0px|0px” padding_mobile=”off” allow_player_pause=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on” make_equal=”off” column_padding_mobile=”on” parallax_1=”off” parallax_method_1=”on” parallax_2=”off” parallax_method_2=”on” parallax_3=”off” parallax_method_3=”on” parallax_4=”off” parallax_method_4=”on” admin_label=”row” disabled=”off”][et_pb_column type=”2_3″ disabled=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on” column_padding_mobile=”on”][et_pb_text background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” admin_label=”Text” text_font=”PT Serif||||” text_font_size=”20px” text_text_color=”#363636″ text_line_height=”1.4em” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

There has been no major change to the way you make gold in Legion. Sure there’s been some changes to the professions and there are new items to trade, but essentially the Warcraft economy is still driven by Supply and Demand. Remember what the Goblins say: it’s an economy, stupid!

All the things you learnt in previous lost pages still apply in Legion. In fact, they apply across all expansions and will probably apply in all future updates. It’s just the way the game works. Either way, to make gold in Legion you must list items on the Auction House that are in demand, at the right price, in the right amount and at the right time.

If you have have just started Legion and finding competition on  the Auction House tough, then try trading items from previous expansions. For example, Living Steel and Ghost Iron Ore (Mists); Sumptuous Fur and Raw Beast Hide (Warlords) as a few examples.

“Learn to master TSM”

To sell your items at the right price in the right amounts you must have an Auction House addon that you’re comfortable with and feed it with good data on a regular basis. My addon of choice is TradeSkillMaster – but you can use any of the popular ones if you find TSM too complex. 

If you’re using TSM it helps to create groups based on the items you craft for each expansion. So, if you’re an Alchemist, create groups specific to Legion Potion and Flasks and apply Legion specific operations. For example, in Legion I’m posting potions and flasks in units of 3; for Warlords potion and flasks, I’m posting in units of 10.

Legion professions have been tweaked slightly to include additional tiers of experience, denoted by 3 stars next to each recipe. The more tiers of experience you have the less material is required to craft a particular recipe and a greater chance to proc more items. If you’re a gatherer, the more tiers of experience you have the more items are likely to drop. In addition, profession leveling is now closely tied to quests which become available at various experience levels in the game up to level 110.

The upshot of all this is that your alt must attain a sufficient level of experience and have completed the necessary profession quests if you’re to compete on the Auction House for crafted and gathered items. The good news is that crafted items are more likely to retain their value well into the expansion and perhaps beyond as players must invest their time leveling alts and completing their profession quest lines. Remember: ‘Time’s Money, Friend!’

“Nomi Cooking”

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”3_4″ disabled=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on” column_padding_mobile=”on”][et_pb_text background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” admin_label=”Text” text_font=”PT Serif||||” text_font_size=”20px” text_text_color=”#363636″ text_line_height=”1.4em” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

Don’t forget about the secondary professions – especially Cooking. Cooking is a bit of a pain in Legion. Unlike Legion First Aid, you can’t just pickup Legion Cooking. You must first get to a Cooking skill of 700, learn Legion Cooking from a trainer in Dalaran and then – nothing! You can’t learn any Legion cooking recipes until the Nomi Quest turns up. This usually happens when you acquire your first Legion cooking recipe. Nomi then sets you the quest for additional recipes obtained while leveling throughout the Broken Isles. After this is completed, you then provide workorders to Nomi along with cooking material for a chance to learn additional Legion recipes.

The upshot of this painful process is that Legion cooks require vast amounts of Meats, Fish and miscellaneous items to level their profession. This means that all manner of Meats and Fish are greatly in demand on the Auction House and cooked items have retained their value. There’s gold to be made from the profession of Cooking!

There’s a vast amount of new material in Legion and I’ve created a Legion-specific guide as part of my Journal series of gold making guides. In this guide I build on the lessons and principles from the previous guides in the series, notably Auction House, Professions and TradeSkillMaster. The most important lesson in Legion is to level your alt and to complete your profession quests as quickly as possible. Don’t forget that players haven’t abandoned previous expansions and theirs usually still demand for items and material from way back to vanilla wow. Have fun!
