There Are No Gold Making Secrets

Yup, that's right. Nada. None. Zilch.

As Wadi said it best in the opening of her (his?) recent post today...

"I'm afraid that what I will write first will be a huge disappointment, at
least it was for me, there is no such thing as gold making secrets."

I remember when I first started getting into the game and contemplated buying a guide or two. And then I realized two things:

  1. When they mention 4, 5, 6 or 7 days it's in time played - not calendar time. For me, it might take two weeks to log 24 hours of game play. So those guides are really saying 8, 10, 12 or 14 weeks to achieve the results they claim. And I would guess they state somewhere in the guide that "results may vary."
  2. The second is that there are many good guides out there for free. Ten Ton Hammer has a bunch or just Google whatever-you-want-to-know and the word guide and you'll get what you need.

The realization of #1 was a bit of a bummer, but that's the way this game was designed.

The good news is that making a butt load of gold doesn't have to take that much time and it can fit into whatever game style you prefer. There weren't too many comprehensive guides on how to do this in the Auction House so I decided I'd share my experience.

You can make a ton of gold no matter what level you are. Hopefully this blog will help you get there.
