How to Farm 100 Gold in World of Warcraft within an Hour

WoW Article

You can do 25 daily quests each day. Once a quest is complete you can’t do it again until the next day. Each quest gives you roughly 9 – 11 gold with some giving upwards to 23 gold. With the addition of the Isle of Quel’Danas (click here for our guide) you can complete all of the quests there within an hour and earn about 120-140 gold along with drops, ores, and herbs (see gathering below). If that doesn’t quench your thirst for money you can then spend another hour in Outland doing even more daily quests for another 50-150 gold. Personally I’d advise doing all of the quests on the Isle of Quel’Danas and using the quest reward to teleport to Shattrath. Go then to the Throne of Kil’Jaeden and run two more daily quests for another 20 gold (putting you at about 160 gold plus an item to sell). Afterwards there is a ton of options available.

If you’re looking to get a Netherdrake and already have spent the 5,000 gold to obtain the riding lesson you can do a few Netherdrake quests to gain some gold and reputation. The Sha’tari Skyguard and Ogril’la have a few easy dailies that also give a decent amount of coin. Then there is fishing and cooking dailies if you’ve got those tradeskills and the materials beforehand farmed up. Then there is the heroic daily that’ll grant you over 20 gold for running a heroic instance. The PvP daily is a no-brainer that gives about 10 gold and honor!

So if you run all of the Isle of Quel’Danas quests (1hr, 140 gold), do the Kil’Jaeden quests (20min, 30 gold), hit up the PvP daily (20 minutes, 10 gold), and then do two more dailies from somewhere else (20min, 20 gold) then you’ll be done for the day with 210 gold after 2 hours. That's not including items that may drop or some of the quest rewards! As if that wasn't sweet enough the best thing is that you'll be able to break these quests up into smaller chunks throughout your day. You don't even have to spend it all in one session. As casual or hardcore as you want to take it. Speaking of gathering.


Gathering is a great way to make cash while you’re doing other things. Metal ores sell for tons to be prospected by Jewelcrafters. Herbs are needed for flasks which raiders down like antacids after a trip to a local Mexican restaurant. Leather is easy to get and can be sold for a fair amount as well.

With an epic flying mount you can easily fly nearly everywhere patrolling for resource nodes (for herbalism/mining). With a regular flying mount you can fly through areas with a lot of hills/obstacles looking for resource nodes as well. Don’t turn ore into bars! Check the price of 1 bar vs. 2 ores and see which one sells for the most on the Auction House.

The key to gathering is to gain the cash while doing something else. Gathering can really pay off if you’re farming for a steady while. If you really need to farm items and don’t mind spending an hour for about 50 gold then there is a few options you have.
