Quick & easy gold before level 40

In Classic Vanilla WoW a lot of players will find that their biggest setback will be getting their level 40 mount that costs about 100 gold. If you get to level 40 and you don’t have a lot of gold to afford the level 40 mount, you will find that not having that mount will slow you down a ton. Now there are things you can do while leveling that will help you tremendously in getting your mount, places to grind, areas to level in, what level you should be in certain areas and other stuff, which is exactly what we will show to you today.

Below we will cover a variety of zones and monsters in those zones that will both grant you large XP and gold.

NOTE: Keep in mind we do not take into account all the green / rare drops you may get from slaying these monsters.

It is also recommended that you get good bags so that you will have more inventory space and therefore not needing to go vendor that often. A great bag is the item

Lost Ones

The second mob is actually a group of mobs called the “Lost Ones”, there’s a camp of these in the northern side of the Swamp of Sorrows at levels 36-37.

Note: There are 2 chest spawns in the camps that these spawn in, these chests have a high green, blue drop rate, and a rare World item Drop rate. Therefore this grind spot is a lot more contested than the https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=767/swamp-jaguar spot, so keep that in mind.

Speed up your Grinding

  • Obviously you can use professions such as Mining and Skinning.

Skinning is great in almost every scenario, and it is no different here, leather is always useful/needed.

Mining is always decent but it’s ultimately decided in whether your realm/server has good prices on ores in the Auction House or not.

NOTE: You should, of course, note that grinding in these areas is very viable without any professions, but they do give you a bonus.

  • Next, try to always enchant your weapon with item. Seeing as the price on this enchant is always low, the 6 additional damage to beasts is practically free and a must-have.
  • Always check for chests around the areas you are grinding in, as they are probably very common there, as explained before.

You have now reached the end of this tiny gold making guide, we will now discuss a huge mistake that can be found in a lot of players while they’re leveling their characters, and that mistake is leveling skills. Let’s say you make a new character. You do not want to waste gold on skills that you do not need during leveling or anywhere for that matter, for an example, hunters don’t need https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=1495/mongoose-bite#see-also-ability, warlocks do not need https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=126/eye-of-kilrogg, and so on. Some spells are not needed in this game and/or during leveling, so do your research online or ask around what spells to train and what not to train.
