WoW Jewelcrafting Gold Making Guide Patch 3.3.5: Getting Started & Dailys

Jewelcrafting Gold Guide SQ

Making gold with Jewelcrafting can sometimes seem complicated but, hopefully this video will simplify things. I'll be using several strategies to show what is working well and not so well in Patch 3.3.5. Jewelcrafting does have some tough competition so be prepared to duke it out with others on the Auction House. This guide will show the average daily max and your server may do better or worse depending on its economy.

  • To start off, you'll first want to spend a few minutes doing the Dalaran Jewelcrafting daily. They're extreme easy and only require one item from a Northrend mob and a few uncommon gems. This one wants an item that drops off of any Scourge in Northrend. No problem, I'll just fly over to Icecrown and kill this giant elite. If you can't kill this elite, the Scourge on the ground will work as well. Alright, got the item and now back to Dalaran. The quest gives a Dalaran Jewelcrafter's token which I'll exchange for a Dragon's Eye to sell. If you still need designs, you can ofcourse use it to purchase those instead. I don't so it's a nice and easy 93 gold in 3 minutes.
  • Next, I'll do the other Jewelcrafting daily which is to make an Icy Prism that could contain a Dragon's Eye and epic gems. Ofcourse my luck is off today and no epics or Dragon's Eye but hey, it only cost 25g to make and the gems sell for 76g cut to total a profit of 51g for a minute worth of effort.

WoW Jewelcrafting Gold Making Guide Patch 3.3.5: DE'ing Rings

  • Ok, now to test out crafting rings to disenchant. I'll be making the Stoneguard Band which takes two [Eternal Earth] to make but on your server it may be cheaper to make the Shadowmight Ring which takes one [Eternal Shadow] and one [Eternal Earth]. Naturally, choose whichever is cheaper on your server.
  • First, I'll buy some [Eternal Earth] from the Auction House. Using the [Eternal Earth] I just bought from the Auction House and ones from someone in trade, I'll craft 182 rings. Sitting in Orgrimmar crafting rings can get a bit boring so feel free to do a battleground, daily heroic, or raid while you craft the rings. Sometimes I just sit at the farm in AB crafting away until someone tries to take the flag. Alright, it's about 17 minutes later and I've crafted all the rings. I'm sending them off to an alt to disenchant. If you don't have an Enchanter, just ask someone in guild or trade to do it for you and make sure to tip them. Ok, now that all the rings are disenchanted, it's now time to list the Enchanting materials on the Auction House. I like to list Enchanting materials for 12 hours and in full stacks. If I don't have a full stack, I list in singles instead. It took about 25 minutes to craft and list all the rings while netting 2,053g minus 1,688g in materials and tips, for a total of 365g in profit. That's not bad for 25 minutes but, profit margin percent wise is pretty bad. Below is a simple way to get a general idea if it's worth it.

    If (Eternal Price) x 2 is less than [1.5 x (Infinite Dust Price) + 0.5 x (Greater Cosmic Essence Price)]

    Disenchanted Materials from 182 x [Stoneguard Band].

    Greater Cosmic Essence - x 56 - 18.25g (1022g)
    Infinite Dust - x 769 (38.45 stacks) - 25.45g/stack (978.55g)
    Dream Shard - x 7 - 7.58g (53.06g)

  • You can also try making these uncommon rings and necks to disenchant as well. I choose not because the time and effort put into them isn't worth it but, if you don't have a lot of gold to spend they can be great to start out with. Below is a list of uncommon rings and necks to create.

    [Bloodstone Band]
    [Crystal Chalcedony Amulet]
    [Crystal Citrine Necklace]
    [Sun Rock Ring]

WoW Jewelcrafting Gold Making Guide Patch 3.3.5: Prospecting & Gems

WoW Jewelcrafting Gold Making Guide Patch 3.3.5: Listing & Flipping Gems

  • After you get everything cut it's time to list the gems on the Auction House. With so many gems this can be a pain so, I like to use the Quick Auctions 3 addon combined with Auctioneer to make it a bit easier. For gems, I like to undercut by one silver and list them for 12 hours. Alright, Prospecting the [Titanium Ore], cutting, and listing the gems took about 20 minutes, netted 2,606g minus 1,832 in materials for a total of 774g. [Saronite Ore] on the other hand, took 35 minutes to prospect, cut, and list gems while netting 1,422g minus 546g for a total profit of 876g. Both are decent but Saronite Ore still has the least amount of risk while maintaining a large profit. But here's the thing, you can only sell so much a day with the lowered demand so, don't expect to become rich over night.
  • Ok, so I showed prospecting to get uncut gems but, you could also just straight buy them from the Auction House instead. Flipping gems is one of the easiest ways to make gold with Jewelcrafting and usually has the least amount of risk. Simply buy some uncut cheap epic gems from the Auction House or spam trade to buy directly from players, cut them into high priced, decent sellers, list them, and collect good profit from a few minutes worth of effort. Here I netted 1,809g minus 960g in materials for a total of 849g profit. Yes, 849g for seemly cheap gems taking a mere five minutes to search, cut, and list. It's super easy gold and great for those limited on time.

WoW Jewelcrafting Gold Making Guide Patch 3.3.5: Meta Gems & Epic Jewelry

  • Alright, next we'll take a look at metas. They are one of my favorites to sell because, they usually have a very large profit margin, are in good demand, and don't have a million different types. So, I bought 17 Earthseige and 20 Skyflare Diamonds from the Auction House. Cut them into the highest best selling metas and listed them for 12 hours. It took about 10minutes to make them and list them and a little over a day to sell them all netting 1,913g minus 856g for a total profit of 1,057g. Pretty sick for 10 minutes worth of effort but, that was the limit. Had I made anymore, I wouldn't be able to sell them.

    Best Selling Meta Gems:


    [Chaotic Skyflare Diamond]
    [Relentless Earthseige Diamond]
    [Ember Skyflare Diamond]
    [Insightful Earthseige Diamond]
    [Destructive Skyflare Diamond]
    [Thundering Skyflare Diamond]
    [Powerful Earthseige Diamond]
    [Tireless Skyflare Diamond]
  • Ok, so what about epic jewelry. Well, don't expect it to do too well. The profit margin is low and the sale rate isn't great either. I usually only make the tanking [Titanium Earthguard Chain] and [Titanium Earthguard Ring] if anything at all. Just like gems, I only list them for 12 hours. I sold both of these in a little over a day but they normally take a few days to sell. Because there are so many other easily obtainable ring and necklace epics the profit margin is pretty small. They both sold for 1,424 gold minus 1,108g in materials for a total of 316g in profit. Not bad for a minute of buying materials off the Auction House, pressing a button twice to craft them, and twice to list them but, percentage wise could be too risky for some.

WoW Jewelcrafting Gold Making Guide Patch 3.3.5: Final Total & Tips/Suggestions

  • Well, that's all the different Jewelcrafting strategies in this video. It took a total of two hours to do all of this which netted 11,398g minus 7,017g for a total of 4,381g in sweet profit. I will list out all the details on my website. So, I bet you're wondering what I think is the best way to make gold with Jewelcrafting right. Well, some combination of what's in this video and on my website. Smart people diversify to cover a bigger market and rake in more cash.
  • On a final note, don't think just because you don't have a bazillion gold you can't do well with Jewelcrafting or any other profession for that matter. So what you don't have 10k to spend. Anything in this video and guide can be cut down to almost any budget. Do the dailys and spend a few hundred gold to make a few rings to disenchant, gems to cut, or ore to prospect.
  • Once you get the hang of how much you sell begin purchasing mats during the weekend; they are typically the cheapest on the weekend.

    The main reason for this, is most players aren't actually raiding on the weekends and have a lot more time to gather mats. With the abundance of mats comes the simple economic rule of supply exceeding demand which leads to lower prices. This doesn't mean 100% of the time they will be cheaper on the weekend but instead it makes it more likely. After you get a feel for mat prices you can purchase them throughout the week for the lowest prices.

  • Checking on mats everyday will get you familar with who sells what.

    Pay attention and take a look at who is selling mats all the time and message them to sell directly to you at a discount. This will save you big on the craft costs. I have countless farmers listed on my friend's list who I deal with regularly to get the cheapest price possible.

  • Finally, World of Warcraft isn't just about making gold and really should be the smallest part of your playtime.

    I hope this Jewelcrafting Gold Making Guide for Patch 3.3.5 will help you get rich in World of Warcraft but at the same time free up farm time so you can actually enjoy the game for what it is meant to be; fun! So, don't sit at your computer 24-7 just to make gold. Go out, raid, PvP, whatever, just make sure to have fun (^_^)v.

    Well, that's it for this Jewelcrafting Gold Guide for Patch 3.3.5 and I hope you can bank off it.

    Thanks for checking out this guide!
