Wowhead Economy Weekly Wrap-Up 127 | Spreadsheets, Bank Alts & Raw Gold
WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-Up
Hello! Welcome to the 127th edition of the WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-up!
My name is
and I am a content creator focusing on making gold using Professions and
. I have a number of guides over on
and I also stream my adventures on
Longboi's Craft Pricing Worksheet
It is well known that us gold makers love a good spreadsheet! Here
has created a wonderful spreadsheet for calculating costs of common Alchemy, Inscription and Tailoring items...
So I know spreadsheets are a dime a dozen but I wanted to share my current project I've been working on the past few days!
I'm super proud of it, I wanted something that compiled the things I currently craft (for longboi!) that gives me a snapshot of my costs and profits for the day and a farming/shopping list.
I love cute colors and making spreadsheets pretty, so enjoy the pastel color scheme haha.
While I originally did this for my own farming, I have made it as user friendly as possible if anybody else wants to use it. The "COST WORKSHEET" page has a little blurb on how to use the sheet if needed.

Thankyou for sharing this one rorybee and I hope it helps others visualise their costs for these professions. It could easily be adapted for other items you find yourself looking at making and want to know the profits and how much you need to farm/buy. Please do share any others that you might think useful to the community.
5 Ways to Gold Farm
has released a great video this week going through different types of gold farm along with some examples and the methods behind them ..
The topics covered are ..
Raid Mob Farming
Az Mount Farming
Mythic Instance Farm
Bank Alts and Where to Park Them
started an interesting topic this week about their process for making a bank alt which triggered some further discussion about other benefits and ideas as to where to place your auction characters.
For some idiotic reason, I was putting off making an AH/bank alt and was managing everything on my main. My stock was getting a little unwieldy so I decided it was time. Turns out it's so insanely easy and makes managing your auctions way simpler. I tried to simplify setting things up: making the alt, setting up TSM, and the basic workflow.
Making the alt
Grab an unused toon or create one and level it to 5. Race/class really doesn't matter you're walking like 8 steps
Get a single level in engineering, this lets you use the AH in Pandaland
Get a friendly mage to port you to Vale of Eternal Blossoms
Behind the pillar on the right is Goblin paradise: auction house, mailbox, bank all within 4-5 steps
adds to this with ..
Alternatively, create an allied race so you start at level 20 (can mount) and head to Valley of Wisdom AH in Orgrimmar or Dwarven District AH in Stormwind. If you have the Brutosaur just head to any mailbox (depending on server size I hang in Org/SW or head to a less populated zone for faster scans). You can run between the AH, mailbox, and bank very quickly in these zones. You are also in a convenient place to meet anyone who you might want to buy/sell/trade with.
I also suggest any "true" goblin have a second account as the 100-180k you'll spend on a token will be negligible compared to the money you'll make by running extra scans, bulk crafting while playing, etc.
.. and not to forget the guild bank as pointed out by
Also take the time to make a guild for your bank alt and guild bank for storage. I paid people like 100g each to sign the charter and kicked them soon as it was made. Spent the gold to open up the gbank tabs and store stuff. So when I have like 20 stacks of something but only put like 4 on the AH I have a place to store them. Made things so much easier
This leads to other suggestions for places to park your Bank Alt such as ..
Shattrath Scryers Bank
Orgimmar Valley of Wisdom
Stormwind Dwarven District
The main reasons for these are usually down to convenience and a quiet place. It's also worth noting if you are Horde in the Shrine, there is a random bird that can aggro and kill you.
What are your favourite places to park your bank alt?

Making Gold on a Second Screen
Quite often in these times we find ourselves in situations where having WoW on a second screen while doing something else on the main can be beneficial in terms of gold making. The topic came up this week by
I have an all day meeting this Friday and would love to have a farm that I can just drop an ox statue or something and just afk farm. Gold per hour doesn’t need to be great, I just want something to do that’s productive.
One of the suggestions pointed to a
video from DalaGG
where he references a farm shown by
This is one of many hyperspawn farms where using a Druid and a targetting macro allows you to kill nearby mobs without having to pay too much attention to the screen and then loot every now and again.
Other such as
Crimson whelpling farm in wetlands, you need to loot once per +-25 mins since dropped pet is rare and despawns after half a hour, all you need is to place ox statue once per 15 mins and way to recast rushing jade wind and you are golden. I think this is propably best. But pets usually dont sell superfast.
On the other hand, mass milling and creating crimson pigment into warscrolls is propably better, cuz it will sell.
This is a great idea in general, doing mass crafts or scans is an effective use of your second screen time as suggested by
Tailor clothes vendor shuffles if you got cheap supply on your server, takes little effort to setup and require not much attention.
The cheap tidespray gold printing have sail now that people have caught on, but Shal'dorei Silk pants shuffle are still pretty lucrative and many servers still have them for relatively cheap. Break even is 2.4g so depending on the server you're looking at 20% profits or more on the flip
Another suggestion is Fishing by
During teleconferences I like fishing. Viper fish or the new Horrific Visions fish from Assault zones. Keep the sound up to be able to hear the splash. Can keep enough concentration on the meeting to still be paying attention.
posted an update
of what they ended up doing ..
I ended up doing a mix of inscription and twilight highlands drake farming and in a matter of 3 hours I made about 25k so not a bad pull for standing still for 3 hours
Coming This Week - Thousand Boat Bash
A little micro holiday event this week deserves a mention for gold making -
Thousand Boat Bash
. While in itself the event does not create any gold, the reward is a
which lasts for 7 days.
The boat is really fast and great for fishing. During the 7 days after, there is the
Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza
on Sunday which rewards a
great XP ring for alts
. There is also the
shortly after, which you can speed around the lake fishing for
and sell those of use them yourself.
If you are really into fishing though and want a more permanent solution, then I highly recommend the
Anglers Fishing Raft
gained from the
Anglers faction in Pandaria
Most of this information was discussed and originally posted on the
subreddit or in the accompanying
. You can also catch me streaming live on
on Sunday from around 7PM GMT UK Time (2pm Eastern Time) for the WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-up live on Wowhead.com, or you can tweet your feedback/thoughts via Twitter at
I hope you found this useful and If you have any suggestions or feedback, please do say so in the comments below..
Until next time, Happy Goldmaking!
