I was a leatherworker. At higher levels I made clefthide leggings and sold them for around 60 gold or so each on the AH.

Killing is profitable. You just need someone like Eowyna with her exceptional marketing and negotiating skills. :)

[This is for lower levels mainly]

When I played WoW I found that resources are one of the best casual money making schemes - for me it was herbalism.

You pick up herbs on your pvm rounds and you end up with a nice amount which people need to trainup their alchemy skillz. SO you can make a tidy amount on rarer herbs!

Second - dont over look first aid training - I found I could sell wool and cloth for a pretty good return on time to farm it and it comes as a by product of farming some Mobs also - so its a win-win.

In general I found you make more money [relatively and at low levels] selling to people who are training rather than selling your own crafted items? [If that makes sense?]

That does make sense, but that means my own training in skills would be lacking :-/

Not necessarily.

Once you have no use for herb x anymore [as in you can use different herbs for higher level potions] you can still make a fair amount selling herb x to other players who do [still need them]!

Also another tip is use busy days to sell stuff in the Auction House - an auction started 12noon on saturday has a much better chance of sellign than if you put it in at some obscure time of the week!

Raiding and selling your fighting skills is much better than gathering berries.

Good point, never thought about when AHs were active/busy.

Raiding and selling your fighting skills is much better than gathering berries.

The number one rule that you should have in any game with an economy, and has been stated as the rule of thumb:"Buy Low, Sell High."

World of Warcraft has several occupations that have a high demand from other players. Herbalism, Skinning, Mining all can make a profit in selling the raw materials for Alchemist, Leather Workers, Blacksmith/Jewel Crafters etc...

Then there are the Crafters (I know I know Maddux =) )
Blacksmithing is the bottom of the rung, because no one really wants to buy weapons/armor since they have so many better mob drops from dungeons. Not to mention the materials for them are generally way to high to profit off of. The same goes for leather workers. But, if you have a enchanter as one of your characters, you can make the items on your blacksmith/leatherworker/tailor and send them to him to disenchant. The mats from disenchanting usually give off a high resale value. Alchemist on the other hand, have cheap mats and the resale for elixirs and potions is quite high, as many low and high level raiders live off potions. I've been told for many high level raids, if you don't have a flask on your buff bar, you wont be taken on the raid. Also, depending on what specialiaty you choose, you also have a chance of making multiples of a potion/elixir/transmute you make, thus raising your profit signifintly.

My last thought, which goes in hand with my motto. Look for resale deals on the AH. There have been many times when I have seen rare or epic items that have been put on the Auction House for a tenth of what they are worth, then have been bought and resold for a much higher price. In fact, I just bought a trinket for 60 gold that has a resale value of 1200 i.e.

So there you have it, my take on the best way to make money in Wow. Hope you all enjoy it and that it makes sense. Remeber my motto, "Buy Low, Sell High!"
