World of Warcraft:
from WoW gold to cold hard cash

by Hugo Beland

As you may have heard, World of Warcraft if one of the leading games in the industry for 2006. You may be one of the people having fun playing, but have you ever thought of making a profit out of it? If you're into computer games, and need a few bucks, this is the article you should be reading.

Gold is the main currency in World of Warcraft, and making a lot is really easy - you just need to know the tricks of the trade. The trick to making real money is selling WoW gold on websites to make real life currency.

Step 1: earning WoW gold.
  • Get a character to level 60 to be able to explore all the regions of World of Warcraft to be able to exploit all the resources in your disposition. The main source of income is the auction house. You need to learn to "play" the auction house, which is similar system to eBay.

  • A good way to make WoW gold is to sell items created by the characters in your professions. There are six professions that can create items: Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Enchanting, Engineering, Leather working and Tailoring. And there are three gathering professions which allow you to gather reagents and materials to use with your main profession in order to create items: Skinning, Mining an Herbalism. I strongly suggest you raise your profession skills as you level so you don't have to waste time and gold once you get to higher levels. As soon as you start your character, you're ready to start your professions.

Step 2: be the best in what you do.
Step 3: convert your currency.
  • Now that you are more than wealthy in WoW gold currency, you can start making real money. I suggest that you visit sites like and which pay about 30-50 US dollars per 1000g. This won't replace a full time job, but if you are an extreme gamer, and don't have much time to work, this is the way to go.
