Have you ever thought about the best way to farm gold in World of Warcraft? I’m pretty sure you’ve seen players show off their expensive things, like fancy endgame gear or mounts like the Mechano-Hog. There are many ways to make gold, but the best method is continually changing, depending on the modifications and expansions introduced in the game.
So what would be the best way to farm gold in WoW these days?
You’ve probably encountered or seen Pristine Black Diamonds drop from mobs in level 55-60 areas, but did you know how expensive they are and why? Most people do not know that these gems increase in value and simply sell them to sellers or auction them for small prices.
Selling pristine black diamonds is perhaps the best way to farm gold in WoW right now because 1 diamond sells for up to 500g. So what do people need them for? Many players want the title “The Insane”, which can be achieved by earning exalted reputations with various dark factions in the game. The faction that requires Pristine Black Diamonds is a group of elves, the Shen’dralar, who live in Dire Maul.
These diamonds are very difficult to find, which is why they are expensive. So there are 2 ways to get them.
1) Keep an eye on the Auction House and buy all the auctioned diamonds at a low price and sell them for 4-500g. Like I said, many people do not know the true value of these gems.
2) Grow them yourself. There are many places in the game with mobs that have a chance to drop them. But the drop rate is pretty low, no matter where you go. So you might waste a couple of hours killing who knows what mobs in some forgotten corner of an area to get 1 diamond. That is not very effective. But on the other hand, you can be lucky and get quite a few.
Now if you are working on your “Insane in the Membrane” achievement, it is best to farm the gold to buy these diamonds and other items that you need for that achievement. There are many methods and places where you can make tons of gold. But again, if you want to make some gold, collecting pristine black diamonds might be the best way to farm for gold in WoW right now.
