Hello! Welcome to the 314th edition of the WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-up!
This week we cover the topic of «Just Buy a Token» and what that means between different players and how it's an option for many. We also go further to discuss the timing of gold making and the choices we have in the various flavours of WoW. I go through my own plans for 2024 and we have a great new tool for helping search for items in Cross Realm Trading! Finally, we have some great advice for setting up old world professions
My name is Samadan and I'll be your guide through the World of Gold Making!
Just Buy a Token
Thistopic came up this week as a complaint about advice given on the woweconomy subreddit, but it highlights the differences between players and gold makers and how the border between both is blurred. Sometimes the answer is to buy a Token if you want gold. The greater question is what do you want and what do you enjoy?
Someone who just wants a bit more gold to buy nice things in the game can go about it in different ways, all dependent on the time and resources they have IRL vs in-game and what they enjoy doing. As they as «Time is Money, friend».
As goblins ingame say:
TIME IS MONEY FRIEND

The choices a player has to make gold in game and the volumes are constantly changing, even more so in recent times. We are at the late stage of an expansion and popular options like gathering are heavily diminished.

Good gold to be made early expansion, if specced right people were pulling 30k an hour mining and herbing, but a lot of that was coming from awakened Mats.
Now there's nowhere near the demand for consumables so prices come down and so do raw materials for these. Now it's absolutely not worth your time gathering, could genuinely make more doing world quests.
You're probably about 12 months too late to be making good gold with gathering.
That said, once TWW goes live, herb and mining will be extremely profitable in the first few weeks and still be a good money maker after the first month. However as is always the case, crafting professions will always make more. Gathering professions are great for those who don't really 'get' professions and don't want to do the crafting side of things.
For example, you could do 30k an hour gathering early expansion, but if you knew what you were doing and what to make, you could pull 100k a hour easily making the right crafted gear for people.
There are many methods to make gold even now. Many of the low effort methods have been curtailed over time, so what's left are things that those who dedicated can capitalize on.
Well first, it's really not
