Average: 3.4 (9 votes)
Welcome SQ

Below is an overview video and detailed walkthrough on how to easily make gold as a low level. I'll be showing how to start with nothing and make a very good amount below level 10. As shown in the Lowbie Gold Making Guide video below, expect to make around 100~150g or more an hour depending on your server's economy. I'll explain why you should never think because you're a low level that you can't make a decent amount of gold as well as how to do it without losing much of any leveling time. This Lowbie Gold Making Guide is up-to-date for Patch 3.3.5! Please enjoy this Lowbie Gold Making Guide and if you have any questions or feedback feel free to post them on our forums.

  • This guide will show you how to make gold as a low level without any support from a high level.

WoW Lowbie Gold Making Gold: Getting Started

  • Making gold as a lowbie is actually quite easy and should be no problem for a new character who has no money support.
  • First, you'll need to reach level 6 or so and head to the nearest major city. Find the Skinning and Mining trainer and learn them both. If you don't know where they are, ask a guard. I'll also list some on my website. Also, make sure to purchase a Skinning Knife and Mining Pick.

WoW Lowbie Gold Making Gold: Making Gold While Leveling

  • After that head to Durotar for Horde or Dun Morogh for Alliance. I'll be spending 30 minutes farming leather, ore, and boar meat while I level up my alt. Simply kill all the boar, skin them, and mine nodes in the area following the route I've laid out. Also make sure your map is fully zoomed out and tracking minerals.

  • Don't worry too much about your gear. Mines a joke but if you have the BoA's you should make a lot more gold faster. Personally, I like the disadvantage so this guide can apply to everyone and be more accurate and reasonable. As you're killing the mobs be sure to skin them and watch your map for mining nodes. They'll show up as a yellow dot. Mine everything you can but don't worry too much if a node is too far away or in a dangerous place. Just skip it and continue killing and skinning boars. You're not only killing boar for the leather you skin but also because they drop Chunk Gettiof Boar meat which sells for a nice amount on most servers.

WoW Lowbie Gold Making Gold: Auction House Listing/Selling

  • Alright, so it's been about 30 minutes and time to head back to town and list the items. When it comes to Mining materials you always want to check and see which sells for more by looking at the Auction House and searching for Copper Ore and Copper Bars. It looks like bars sell for almost twice as much so I'll head over to the anvil and smelt them. This works out great since we can get Mining skill ups from smelting the Copper Ore.
  • Ok, so I got all the Copper Ore smelted into bars so it's time to list everything on the Auction House. I'll list all the items for 12 hours and undercut any competition. The first time you do this you may find you don't have enough money to list all the items and if that's the case, just ask some players nearby for a few silver, sell the leather scraps, or wait for some items to sell and list the remaining items.

WoW Skinning Gold Guide: Item Breakdown and Sale Numbers.

  • Alright, it's the next day and although a few items didn't sell yet it's time to collect the gold from my mailbox. The total for 30 minutes of farming was about 74g. Not bad for a low level eight.
  • WoW Skinning Gold Guide - Sholazar Basin Total:
    Copper Bars = 31g
    Light Leather = 2.5g
    Chunk of Boar Meat = 34g
    Misc = 6.5g
    Total = 74g in 30minutes

WoW Skinning Gold Guide: Final Thoughts

  • This is really something you can do as you level all the way to 80. Just take the basic concept of Skinning the mobs you can and Mining nearby nodes. Herbalism combined with Skinning or Mining can work well to make a great amount of gold while you level.
  • Good luck and I hope you enjoyed this Lowbie Gold Making Guide. If you have any suggestions, comments, or feedback, please make a post on our forums.
