A Guide to Making Gold in World of Warcraft Through Mining and Titansteel

Whether you are a hard core raider or a casual player, everyone in the MMO World of Warcraft needs gold. This guide will give you one method for making a sustainable income of gold on your server. One of the most profitable methods I have found as of patch 3.3 is to mine saronite and turn it into titansteel. The first thing you will need to do, obviously, is to get a character to at least the high 70’s and raise your mining skill to a level that you can mine saronite. This skill level is obtained at level 400 and it should not take you long to reach the maximum level of 450. Also, once you get to 450 you will want to mine any titanium nodes you find as they are excellent sources of profit. A player can buy lol account from any website available at the search engines. The motive of the players will be to increase the profit margin in the selling of the account. Proper information should be gathered while purchasing the account from online websites. 

Once you have mined a decent amount of ore, the next step is to smelt it into saronite bars. Each bar requires two saronite ore and there is no cool down for the smelt. When I mine, I usually will stop at 24 stacks of saronite which will yield 240 saronite bars. The absolute best place to do this mining is in the Icecrown Glacier area. A couple of hot spots within this zone includes Deathholme, the chasms south of the Argent Tournament, the mine southwest of the Shadow Vault, and the area under Icecrown Citadel. If Icecrown is being over farmed, an alternative location is Scholozar Basin. In this zone some hot spots include the River’s Heart, the Lifeblood Pillar, around any of the pillars, and a the mountains that surround the entire zone. Regardless of where you mine, when you have amassed 24 stacks hearth back to Dalaran for the next step.

At this point, you will either need to have alchemy as your second trade skill, have an alt with the ability, or hire the services of an alchemist. For every 8 bars of saronite an alchemist can transmute with no cool down and create a single bar of titanium. To create titan steel, you need 3 titanium bars, and one each of eternal earth, shadow, and fire. You should have have more then enough eternal shadows and earths from mining to make the titan steel. If you are short on fire, however, you can farm them either in the volcano area of Wintergrasp or in the Thunderfall area of Storm Peaks. As of patch 3.33 the cool down on titan steel has been removed. All of this mining, smelting, and transmuting will yield 10 bars of titan steel. Each bar of titansteel sells on the auction house, at least on Firetree server, for between 75-110 gold each and tend to sell fast. So, for a couple of hours of mining you should be able to easily net a thousand gold.
