Would you like to play World of Warcraft, but you can't afford to pay the subscription fee? Do you play on pirate servers? Maybe it's time to change... In World of Warcraft for a long time there is an option to pay for the game with gold from... game.
So if there is such an option, why not take advantage of it? Those who play WoW and buy a subscription with gold would definitely want to ease their expenses a bit and play for free. In fact, it's not that difficult. If you belong to the group that plays on private servers - oh... Lich King... How good it feels to beat him eight years in a row... Because Legion is so weak and all - then the only requirement would be to buy Battlechest and the latest add-on. In this article I won't show you exactly where to farm gold, but I will tell you a little bit about how to farm it to earn a token in a month. And no, I will not farm it for you.
Reach the maximum level of your character
It's not necessary, but the easiest way to farm is to level 110. Gather some gear, browse English Youtube (I'll give you some good googling channels later) and head out to farm.
Now a few things about the server and the character itself. Low population servers usually have good prices for items on AH (auction house), although selling such items may take longer than on high population servers. I personally advise you against two servers if you want to earn gold. They are Defias Brotherhood and Burning Legion (EU). You will ask why... The best argument is that most of Poles play there and it causes some onion on AH, that's why for X item on BL or Defias you will pay usually few times less than on other normal servers. I play on BL and I honestly advise against it if you care about geld, because fact... Burning Legion (or Onion, hehe) is a good server if someone wants to play PvE or PvP. Then it's a good idea, because there are a lot of people there who speak Polish. And Defias... is Defias. There are also Poles playing there, but I don't know what is the situation with PvE and PvP. As for PvE, judging by wowprogress, it is not a very good server.

Another issue is of course your character. For farming I would recommend making yourself a balance druid. Good AoE spells, fast movement, just perfect. After reaching level 55 you can create death knight (he respawns on lvl 55) and demon hunter on level 98. Three characters and you can farm.
Choosing good professions is key to success. I use gathering professions on my main. In my case it is skinning and herbalism. You can also play with mining. I use gathering professions on my main character, because I play there the most, and switching to second character and processing items doesn't take long, so I have completely different professions on my second character. In fact, you can make money on any profession (except engineering). Try to play alchemy, enchanting or inscription. I got the most loot from those.
Items for transmogrification are quite profitable, but it's not gold for fast. If you have 500-1000 items, only then you can really have fun with selling them. For me, with seven hundred transmogrification auctions a day I get about 5, so I have almost guaranteed 2000 gold a day. Besides, of course, I put up plants, rocks, skins, etc., so I always get a few thousand a day.
Plants, rocks and skins
While we are on the subject of plants, rocks and skins, it is worth noting how much you need to grow. Yesterday I calculated that if I collect two hundred Suramar roses a day, I'll get the token in about 26 days. Farming time is about an hour, and since I've been a PvP player for a while, I've been collecting plants all the time while waiting for rated battlegrounds, discussing tactics, etc, so I don't even feel it. Just collect whatever is on the latest lands and then auction it off.
The TSM addon is essential for quickly listing items and making money in WoW. However, I'd like to talk about sniping items here. On the internet you can easily find scripts and tutorials on how to set up a sniper for an auction, so after setting it up you can go to the auction and find items that are listed very cheaply. In addition, thanks to TSM, you will be able to put up and receive auctions faster, so the profits are great.
Flipping and underpricing
By underpricing, you are shooting yourself in the knee. When I see one man auctioning off a plant for 90% cheaper than the man above him, I feel like finding him and burning his PC to the ground so he won't be able to do it again. Really... It's not that hard to list something one bronze piece cheaper. It will sell anyway. You may have to wait an extra 40 minutes, but if there is a high demand for an item, doing an undercut by a million percent is just plain moronic and only highlights the "intelligence" of that person.
And what is this flipping? Flipping is buying items with lowered value and then reselling them for normal price or slightly higher. I warn you to buy items that will sell 100% (on theunderminejournal it is written what sells), because otherwise you will be left with the goods and you will be at a disadvantage. Simple? Well, simple.
If you play PvP, earning shouldn't be a problem for you between breaks, but if you play PvE, earning... shouldn't be a problem for you either. Sometimes the monsters that stop you on your way to the boss chamber on the raid will drop items that people buy to dress up their character a bit. Once you drop an item for 10 000, and once for 200 000. When I raid three times a week, I had an average of 80 000 per month from such items. Then just a few hours of plant farming and token collected.
And the last point is regularity. Do not postpone farming gold for a token until the last day, because either you will not succeed, or you will not want to sit 20 hours at the computer. When you buy the first token, start collecting gold for the next one right away. It is easier to spend one hour a day for thirty days than fifteen hours in one day.
That is all I would like to share with you about earning gold.
