Making Gold in Draenor – Selling the Jawless Skulker

If you follow me on Twitter (@MarcusTy) or my Facebook page, you’ll know that I’m now several weeks into my gold making in the new Warlords of Draenor expansion.  Having reached level 96 at a leisurely pace, my garrison has risen to level 2 and I’ve an assortment of garrison buildings that are turning me a nice profit. On my way to level 92, I  gained access to a garrison fishing shack and its here that I found there’s a profit to be made from one of the garrison quests.

For those of you who love to hang out around shady pools, then there’s a ton of gold to be made from fishing in Draenor. As in previous expansions, players need fish for cooking, alchemy and various quests. In Draenor, you also have the additional chore of having to ‘clean and gut’ your fish to obtain its flesh.

Now, one of the  daily quests that you can perform upon building a fishing shack in your garrison is ‘Jawless Skulker’ which requires 10 Jawless Skulker eggs to replenish the garrison pond. This fish is plentiful in the pools of Gorgrond. Depending on your fishing skill, and whether you have attached ‘Jawless Skulker Bait’, you’ll catch either small, regular or enormous types of these fish all over Gorgrond. In fact if you have the right bait, you’ll fish them up from your garrison pond!

Cleaning and gutting the fish in these numbers will yield both flesh and eggs:

20 x small Jawless Skulker
10 x Jawless Skulker
5   x Enormous Jawless Skulker

Now, if you are a fanatical fisherman, or simply like to watch your bobber – well, bob! Then head over to Gorgrond and start fishing. For us gold makers, head over to the Auction House instead and buy up cheap (below market price) stacks of Enormous Jawless Skulker. Gut and clean in stacks of 5 to obtain approx. 17 eggs(1 x 5 stack is normally not enough). You’ll also get an amount of Jawless Skulker flesh. You can now hand in your 10 eggs to complete the fishing daily. No fishing required!

Note: You’ll only get the eggs if you have obtained the quest!

If , like me, you’re thinking there’s a profit to be made in this, you’re right! I’ve been buying up cheap (below market price) enormous varieties of Draenor fish and selling them in stacks of 5 for above market price for a good profit (there are 6 daily quests of a similar type, each requiring 10 eggs). I’ve also been selling the flesh in stacks of 5 or 10 and any remaining eggs from the quests.

On my server the enormous variety of fish are the most profitable, compared with their smaller variety.

There’s a ton of gold to be made in the Warlords of Draenor expansion. Follow me on twitter or visit my Facebook page for more hints and tips. I’ll soon be releasing a brand new Draenor edition of my gold making guide with a free update for those players who have bought my previous editions. So watch this space.

Making Warcraft Gold During Feast of Winter Veil

Gingerbread-cookieIt was the eve before Winter Veil and all along the shore, players were grinding for small eggs and lots more. Yes, it’s the Feast of Winter Veil in Azeroth which means Egg Nog, Preserved Holly and Winter Garb . It also means there’s gold to made during this time of festive merriment.

I love this holiday in Azeroth – a time of Grandfather Winter, The Abominable Greench and stolen reindeer. Of course, as a maker of gold, it’s also a time to do some serious trading and to make some gold selling all those things that players are looking for during this festive time of merriment and questing.

The Feast of Winter Veil provides a good example of how the supply and demand of items are affected by seasonal activities occurring throughout the year in Azeroth. During these times, many players head for the Auction House and buy up the items  they need to complete many of the seasonal quests and achievements. If you time it right you can anticipate this demand and snatch cheap mats from the Auction House to flip for a great profit or – if you’re in your early levels and in need of a little seed capital – grind a short while for easy to gather items.

Now many new gold makers make the mistake of thinking that because an item is easy to gather, other players will be unwilling to splash the cash. This is far from true. Just think about your own buying habits. How many of you have paid extra to have an item gift wrapped in a department store? As the goblins say: “Time is money, Friend”.

So what are the gold making strategies for the Feast of Winter Veil? Well, buying cheap mats from the Auction House before the holiday and then flipping the items for a profit during the holiday at peak demand works every time. As I’ve said in many posts over the years: “The Auction House is the quickest way to make gold in World of Warcraft”

 

Item Use
Small Eggs Gingerbread Cookies, Egg Nog
Bolt of Woolen Cloth (4) Winter Clothes
Bolt of Runecloth (4) Winter Clothes
Rugged Leather (4) Winter Boots
Copper Bar Winter Boots
Deeprock Salt Preserved Holly

 

Small Eggs are very easy to grind as many flying mobs at level 7-11 will drop them. For the Alliance, my favorite place is the Longshore, Westfall where Greater Fleshripper can be found beside the decomposing corpse of a great fish. They spawn at an incredible rate and nearly always drop Small Eggs. For the Horde, try the Crazed Dragonhawk of Eversong Woods. I normally grind for 15-20mins and always come away with 3-4 stacks of eggs which sell for a great profit.

This is also a great time for the Tailors. Pick up the patterns for Winter Clothes from the Smokeywood vendors, on sale during the holiday if you don’t have already these. Of course, if you’re not a tailor then hopefully you have snatched cheap Wool and Runecloth to resell at an exorbitant price! If you’re a Tailor make sure you turn your Cloth into bolts as it will sell much better.

The same strategy applies to Leatherworkers. Crank out those Winter Boots! If not a Leatherworker then snatch cheap Rugged Leather and resell above market price for a good profit.

Deeprock salt is needed for the quest The Hero of the Day to make Preserved Holly. Try grinding the Vault Warder of Uldarman which have good drops of this item.

Happy Holidays!

Marcus
