WOW Gold Classic is the standard currency in World of Warcraft Classic. Your total gold is shown at the bottom right of your open backpack window. You can use gold to buy items from a vendor or other players, transfer gold to other player characters, bid with gold for an item at the Auction House. Other uses are to buy additional bag slots at the bank or hunters can buy stable slots for their pets from a stable master. Players can obtain classic gold by completing quests, killing monsters, selling items to vendors, via trade or mail from other player characters, or by selling an item at the Auction House. If you hope to minimize the time spent earning that money, as well as the gold you’ll need for a variety of other expenses along the way, here’s a few tips and strategies for earning money in WoW Classic.
Tips for selling in Auction House:
The auction house is the main way to make gold. No it does not provide gold quickly but it does provides a steady stream of gold every day. The auction house is very helpful if you want to save up for something, want to hit the gold cap, or simply have something incredibly valuable in your bags and want to sell it for as much as possible.
Set a buyout price. You will usually get a better price, and sell more often and more quickly. People shopping at the auction house are typically in a want-it-now situation and do not want to wait for 8+ hours to get it; they tend to buy out auctions instead of bidding and waiting. So set the buyout price as the price you'll expect to get for your item.
That being said, consider setting a starting bid at substantially lower than the buyout pride. Not so low that you'll be losing money, but low enough to tempt potential buyers who are willing to wait. Remember that once you get a bid on the auction there must be a sale.
Remember that buyers can't split up stacks, so break up your stacks into convenient sizes. If the item is expensive, and is only used in a few recipes, and only a few are needed, selling in small lots may work better. If, for example, a common recipe uses four of the item, then sell in stacks of four or multiples of four. A stack size of one can be good, because it lets the buyers select as many as they need and not buy excess. But if you expect to sell more than a few of the item then make bigger stacks so buyers don't have to make so many bids. Consider discounting the unit price on large or odd sized stacks to get a faster sale.
If you have an item which isn't selling well then try lowering the price to increase demand. It's generally better to sell the item for less money, but actually get that money, than to hang on it indefinitely hoping for more.
