In the unpredictable world of Hardcore WoW, where the grim shadow of permadeath looms over every move, traditional gold-making tactics are in for a twist. The ever-present risk means there’s an undying demand for low-level essentials, like bags.
If you’re new here, you might’ve missed our primer on the importance of having a bank alt and a stash in Hardcore WoW. That piece laid the groundwork, so be sure to catch up on our website. Today, we’ll delve into how, against all odds, I gathered my first 3 gold coins.
From Skinning to Riches
Every adventure begins with a first step. Mine was embracing the skinning profession at Level 5. From furry critters to menacing wolves, nothing escaped my blade. Selling this gathered leather provided the initial funds for my venture.
The Jasperloade Mine Experience
Eager for more, I ventured to the challenging terrains of Jasperloade mine in Elwynn Forest. Trust me; it’s not for the faint-hearted. But perseverance pays. Amidst the challenges, I acquired valuable cloth and a few coveted green items.
Hiding in the City
By the time I reached Level 10, the majestic walls of Stormwind beckoned. Here, amidst its bustling markets and skilled craftsmen, I swapped skinning for Tailoring and Enchanting. With dreams of wands filled with magical essence, I was set for my next chapter. But fate had other plans. A dry spell in magic essence drops quickly pivoted my focus. And what’s more classic than the age-old demand for bags?
The Bag Bonanza
After mastering the art of crafting wool bags, I turned to the Auction House. My strategy was straightforward: procure cloth, craft bags, and profit. The market fluctuations tempted me occasionally, but the core plan remained intact.
And guess what? On the bustling streets of Stitches EU, my bags found eager buyers, regardless of the time.
With 3 gold coins jingling in my pocket, it’s time to look ahead. I intend to wisely bank this gold, keeping a vigilant eye on market trends, and investing in materials poised for value surges. Look out next week for my guide to 3-10g by level 20 (perma death dependant)
