There's a whole load of us that play WoW. Try to get on the European server 'Shattered Hand', that's where all the FXhomers hang out. We might even let you into the guild if you prove yourself worthy... smile

The Majority of us are Night Elves, as we all started playing together.

Well, the cheat is in dutch written. It's kinda: Makkelijk Warloc kilz

niet echt een "cheat" maar ik vond dat het erg makkelijk is om monsters te vermoorden met een warlock bij het gebruiken van “immolation”, “curse of agony” “corruption” en ander schade brengende “spells”die langer door blijven werken. De monsters rennen weg en sterven dan langzaam.
Vluchten van “land battles”

Als je vecht tegen een “land creature” bijvoorbeeld: wolven beren NPC’s. En je bent in de buurt van diep water. Dan duik je erin en dan wacht je even tot je weer health hebt, gebruik heal spells. Het “land creature”zal aan de kust blijven. Dit werkt natuurlijk niet bij “water creatures”., bijvoorbeeld: Murlocs of krokodillen (crocs)

Makkelijk geld

De beste plaats die ik tot nog toe heb gevonden om veel geld te krijgen is Thelgen Rock Wetlands: volg de weg van Menethil Harbor ten oosten en ga richting Dun Algaz. Het is aan de westerse zijde van de weg voor je echt Dun Algaz raakt. De spinnen die je tegenkomt zijn goed te verslaan (lvl 22-23). Er zijn er legioenen van hun ras, in de grot en buiten de grot. En als je ze verslaat dan laten ze dingen vallen die je voor best wel wat geld kunt verkopen. Hieronder volgt de lijst.

<NAAM> <GROTE> <VERKOOP PRIJS>
Gooey Spider Leg 10 1s 20c
Spider Ichor 10 1s 60c
Crisp Spider Leg 10 5s
Fist Sized Spinneret 10 5s 60c
Large Venom Sack 05 9s 25c
Spider Palp 05 16s 55c
Spider Silk 10 38s 70c

Als je van alles 1 had zou je 77s 90c hebben.
Het duurt even voordat je echt veel geld hebt, maar met geduld kom je er wel
5 stappen om een “guild” van jou te maken.
Vind een “Guildmaster” (NPC) in een van de hoofdsteden.
Krijg een ”Guild Charter” van de “Guildmaster” voor 10 silver.
9 andere spellers moeten de “Guild Charter” tekenen.
Geef de “Guild Charter” aan een willekeurige “Guildmaster”.
En je hebt een “guild”
Vind makkelijk koper

In het Elwynn Forest gebied (het gebied waar de “humans” beginnen). Daar is een gebied tussen de “triangle of paths”, eentje leid er naar Northshire, en een naar Stormwind, ga erin tussen de Bergen, maar ga er niet op. Het koper spawnt hier dikwijls.

Errrr.... I think you don't need that but this:

World of Warcraft



Easy Warlock Kills

Not really a "cheat" but i have found that it is very easy to kill mosters
with a warlock by using immolation, curse of agony, corruption and any
other damage over time spells you have and then using fear after the
damage spells are cast. The monster runs away dying slowly over time and
you don't even have to fight it.

Escape from land battles

When you are fighting a land creature
( Wolves, bears, most NPC's, etc. ) and are around a deep ( diveable )
body of water you can jump in and dive down and regenerate some of your
life, use heal spells, etc. The creature/person will remain agro'd, but on
shore. This WILL NOT work on creatures that live in the water obviously, (
Murlocs, Crocs, etc. ) but it can get the heat off of you long enough to
save your life.

Easy Gold

Best Place I have so far for acquiring lots of gold is Thelgen
Rock,Wetlands: follow the road from Menethil Harbor east and go towards
Dun Algaz. It will be on the western side of the road before you actually
hit Dun Algaz. The spiders are lvl 22-23, easy to kill and there are tons
of then, inside and out of the cave. Below is a list of the drops and what
they sell for.

<NAME> <STACK SIZE> <PRICE>
Gooey Spider Leg 10 1s 20c
Spider Ichor 10 1s 60c
Crisp Spider Leg 10 5s
Fist Sized Spinneret 10 5s 60c
Large Venom Sack 05 9s 25c
Spider Palp 05 16s 55c
Spider Silk 10 38s 70c

Total if you had 1 of each stack = 77s 90c
And the spider silk is highly sought after by craftsmen and sell in the
Auction House for as little a 1gold each stack.

I do alot of these runs and net 3-4 gold each run and it takes about 1 to
1 1/2 hours to fill 60 slots to max. A little time and patience and you
will be a few gold richer.

Hotkeys/Diving/Talents or Skills

When you start a character, make sure you no what weapon your going to use
throughout the whole game. It is hard to change weapons when use gotten
far in this game. When your character reaches lvl 10, he will get talent
points. U can access by pushing the "N" key on the keyboard. Yo can
upgrade whatever u want, its like an extra skill that don't cost anything.

U can only have 1 gathering skill or 1 trading skill, or 2 of either. The
gathering skills are:

Mining
Herbalism
Skinning

Trade skills are:

Leatherworking (supported by skinning)
Alchemy (supported by herbalism)
Blacksmithing (supported by mining)
Engineering (supported by mining)
Tailoring (supported by killing humaniods for linen)

There r also secondary skills and miscellaneous skills, like:

Fishing (secondary)
Cooking (secondary)
First aid (miscellaneous)
Enchanting (miscellaneous)

These skills above don't take up any slots for your other, more main,
skills. All of these skills are taught to you by skill trainers around the
world.

U should match the skills with the corresponding classes:

Druid: Skinning & Leatherworking or Herbalism & alchemy or mining and
engineering.

Rogue: same as druid.

Shamen: same as druid.

Hunter: same as druid.

Paladin: Mining & Blacksmithing or engineering & mining.

Warrior: same as paladin

Priest: Herbalism & alchemy or engineering and mining or tailoring.

Mage: same as priest.

Warlock: same as priest.

When your in water, to dive you have to hold down the right mouse button
and tilt the camera the way you want to dive. To get up out of the water,
just jump, or push the spacebar (default to jump) to rise.

Mining Hints (Alliance)

If your a starting miners here's some tips where to get some ores, how
much you should buy or sell them for, and what some do.

Copper- Copper is found through out Elywnn forest and Dun Morogh
especially in the mines, copper is the starting base of mining and can be
used for many things, even some advanced items, such as the ironforge
breastplate, but more importantly for making bronze. id sell 20 bars with
a bid of 6 and a buyout of 8.

Tin- I find most of my tin in duskwood or westfall, u can also find tin in
lock modan though. In westfall the mine gold coast quarry and the dead
miens have abot a 50% of having copper, a 45% of tin, and a 5% of silver,
that's what I think is about right. Also tin is found allover duskwood and
id say 50% of tin, 20% of iron, 20% of copper, and about 10% of silver in
duskwood. Tin cannot make any items and is only for making bronze. I don't
think tin is worth selling, i think you hould smelt it into bronze then
sell it.

Bronze- Bronze cannot be mined and is only for making items,when you smelt
1 copper and 1 tin, you get 2 bronze bars. Now, you can get ALOT of money
from selling bronze, to venders and people, but not not raw material to
venders. For instance, there is a blueprint that makes rough bronze
leggings, and the leggings sell for 10 silver to vender, and it requires 6
bronze to make. thats 3 tin, and 3 copper, so if u find about 1 copper
vein and 1 tin vein, (saying you get 3 from both) that's 10 silver right
there. I'd sell bronze 20 bars for a bid of 22 and buyout of 30 or so.

Silver- A pretty much useless material it doesn't make anything, only
addsinto bronze in items that are silvered, and it only makes 2 items ot
of silver alone, silver keys and silver rods. Silver is in westfall and
duskwood, and i have found it in hillsbrad and other places also. id sell
silver about 3-10 coins a piece.

Iron- This is very valuable to alot of people and makes some good things,
i find almost all of my iron in duskwood inside the ogre cavern.
It is usually on the higher grounds and is worth alot, but you can also
take a lump of coal and turn it into steel. I would sell 1 iron bar for a
bid of 15 silver and buyout 20, i get alot of money from it.

Gold- Also pretty useless, you can make keys and rods out of it but not
much more, vie never actually miend it but i do know that it is found in
the searing gorge and all those other mordorish looking places, you can
get a view on it sometimes on a grpyhon from ironforge to stormwind. Id
sell 1 bar for abotu 25 silver bid and 35 silver buyout, but im not really
good with gold so you should do what you think is a good price.

Steel- Smelt a lump of coal that you can buy from vendors for 5 silver and
some iron and you got some steel. Steel actually sells for less then iron
does to vendors, even though the coal is added. Steel is used in very
strong items that high levels use, and is quite expensive to make. U
should sell 20 steel for about 2.5 gold or so because u might sell 20 iron
for 1 gold 50 silver, plus all that coal costs 1 gold, so if your exhalted
(reputation) u could make alot of money doing this.

Mithril- This is for high level people and can be found in the searing
gorge, burnignteps, and all those places. Mithril sort of has a silverish
yellow taint to it, and has to be used in quests that require over 200
bars which can cost you a LOT of time. Mithril is often combined with
truesilver. mithril should be sold for about 50 silver to 1 gold a piece.

Truesilver- A vry hard material to find, truesilver is sort of a silver to
bronze, it is just an addition that strengthens a weapon. I don't know
much about this material so you should sell it however you think is right.
I do know though, Truesilver is a real material and what it is is Sivler
without any content of tin in it, so is very valuable. All other silver
has a bit of tin and other non valuable materials, truesilver doesn't.

Thorium- The most valuable ore in the game, Thorium is found along with
mithril in the searing gorge and areas like such. It glows turquoise in a
way. There is a rumor i have heard that in order to where thorium armors,
u must smelt 1 lead ore that is found by high level miner enemies (such as
kobalds) into your armor. This could make sense, seeing as how thorium is
a radioactive material, but i dont know about this.

Easy Find Copper

In the Elwynn Forest area (the zone where humans start) There's an area
between the "triangle" of paths, one leading to Northshire, one to
Stormwind, go in between up to the mountains, but don't go up them. Copper
often spawns here, and you can kill time by collecting linen cloth from
the Defias Cutpursses often spawning there.
Easy Elwynn Riches

In Goldshire of Elwynn Forest, to the south is the Fargodeep mine, if you
have the patience to spend a lot of time here, you'll come across some
very good riches, such as Linen Cloths, Magic Staffs that sell a lot, even
a good mallet, also there are copper veins that spawn sometimes. If you
have a character on Feathermoon, look up Berenor if you want to know more
or need someone to show ya.

Those were pretty much all noob-based pieces of advise and I personally as a pretty experienced player disagree with alot of them.

Trade Skills : Just because a Rogue can only wear leather armor, it does not mean that the skills he should choose are Skinning>Leatherworking. Infact, some people would argue that Leatherworking is a total waste of time. Why?

Because Quests and Enemies reward you with better leather armour than you ever be capable of making. Raw Leatherworking materials tend to sell for more (to dummies that want to make the items) in the Auction House than the actual created item itself.

World of Warcraft is a game that requires you only to make money and complete quests, the Armor and Weapons are pretty much gifted to you on the way. The real money-making lies in having 2 gathering skills and just levelling them up to the max and selling all the raws on the AH.

For example, when mining Thorium there is a chance you will find an arcane crystal which can sell for 25g+
Gold and Silver stacks of 20 both sell for a large amount in the AH.

I personally wouldn't advise making the Thelgan run unless you're level 22. Because otherwise the XP is negligable and the gold you make from it is tinsy. Going to a certain area of the game and killing all the enemies repeatedly for their loot is known as "Grinding" which is intensely boring. And it's something north worth doing in comparision to the quests and their rewards. Fact is you don't need a whole lot of extra money until level 40.

At level 34, you can grind the meteologists in STV by the lake and make 1 gold from just a stack of silk. Which would take less than thirty minutes to gather.

And you're talking about staying in Elwyn!? Madness. There's nothing in Elwyn but a lack of excitement and low level players. Gold is not made in WoW through Vendor Trash.

You get more gold the highler level you get but at the same time everything gets more expensive. Theres not really any point in grinding. The best way is to always be killing monsters 1 or 2 levels above you and do the quests.

I dont agree in taking 2 gatherer profs as I want a more balanced character and if everyone did that then there would be noone buying the stuff on the AH.

Stranglethorn Vale is the area north of booty bay and south of Darkshire. How much gold you get is limited only by how quickly and how often you kill enemies that give the kind of loot you want to sell. Silk is often an alright seller in the AH. Though the Panther's and Tiger's drop whiskers which vendor for an alright sum.

It's because of this belief that though we are the same level, I am riding around on a Tiger, with great weapons and 50 gold, whilst you are still stuck running everywhere with less than 10 gold. Whose advice would you take?

kid wrote:

The only thing that gets more expensive is the cost of repairing weapons and buying skills, the amount of which is only a small amount of gold compared to what you should be earning. Like I said, the best weapons are from quests and drops... you shouldn't really have to buy much.

kid wrote:

I'd say my character is pretty balanced, the vast majority of wows players have done the gather>crafter combo so having 2 gatherer skills just helps fuel the crafting system. Of course, if everyone did this the entire system wouldn't work, but it beats creating several characters so you can have every trade skill available which you have done Kid, which is even less useful in terms of the community, not that you ever cared about that anyway...

Well no, it is in fact because I have been spending it on skills, weapons and increasing professions. Also I currently have 40g since I made 30g in a few hours today simply doing quests.

The only reason you have more cash is because you have been gathering for money, which is not only more boring but means your character is very one sided.

Having multiple characters with different skills and races is not about getting ahead in the game but experiencing more of it. Since my main character got onto more interesting quests I have pretty much dropped the others.

I don't see how the ability to skin a bear, but not make a crappy hat with it makes me one sided. Every piece of leather or metal bar I put in for auction is bought, doesn't this suggest that there is a demand for what I am doing?

I never said grinding wasn't boring, infact I said Grinding was extremely boring. But that's got nothing to do with it, fact is that all mmorpg's reward the grinder as they're the ones most likely to pick up rare items that sell for lump sums.

And frankly, I'd rather go out with the intentions of making money than going on a quest with a group and being an ass about the item rewards (I'm looking at you, Kid).

The origional post stated ways of making money and improving skills fast, and what I've posted is a better version of the same thing. Whether or not you or anyone agrees with the methods in which the gold is obtained the fact is that I am making money faster than you, and I am also probably further along in the quests. I don't see how any of what I've written is debateable as it's a fact that I'm reaping in the gold. Though of course, you could make an argument out of anything Kid.

Back on topic, anyone other than the current guild that play wow going to hop into the europe : Shattered Hand server?

Yes and you seem to totally miss the point which is that the game isnt about making gold. Its about exploring, learning skills and completing quests and killing the enemy. In going all out for gold you are missing out on a large part of it.

If you'd like to find the point which I said "all I do is try and make gold" and point it out to me, I'd appreciate it.

I'm pretty sure you know that I spend most of my WoW hours gaming as a team with the rest of the guild which I happen to be leader of, such an act involves everything from completing quests to just plain exploring. An example of which would be mine and Tarn's run up to the undead capitol and defacing of it's throne room.

For me, WoW is all about teamwork. The game would be boring without my friends. It just so happens that I like to make some gold to fund my expensive taste in Tigers and also to pay for that Guild Tabard design you happen to be wearing.

So here's how it looks, I have:
More gold.
More buddies.
More FlightPoints.
More of the Map revealed.

I don't think it's me that's missing a part of the game.

Well no, it is in fact because I have been spending it on skills, weapons and increasing professions. Also I currently have 40g since I made 30g in a few hours today simply doing quests.
I'm calling BS, most quests around levels 40-45 give around 50s-1g 25s. So this means that you must have done no less than 25 high level quests in one day. Considering I played all that day I can say that at the very most you were online for 6 hours.

So... you managed to get 30g in Six hours, simply by 'questing'. You'd be hard pushed to get 8 quests done in six hours mate. Proove what you're claiming.
