Since stepping foot on the frozen shores of Northrend in Perfect World, I've noticed how expensive things have become. Even a bowl of Northern stew at Valiance Keep will nibble at the gold in your bags. So I thought it time to do a little WOTLK gold farming.
Gold farming in Wrath of the Lich King doesn't differ that greatly from other Blizzard expansions, except that players new to the zone can't use their flying mounts until they buy 'Cold Weather Flying' at level 77 at a cost of 1000 gold. Even then, many players struggle to farm this amount of Perfect World Gold and without a flying mount their gold farming strategies are limited to regions reached over ground.
A WOTLK gold farming tip that I always mention on my blog is to make sure that all your professions are maxed out before entering WOTLK . This is important if you're to take advantage of the Lich King gold making opportunities from both Gathering and Crafting professions available only after you reach Grand Master status (level 350). You'll also find it useful to have both Cooking and Fishing at Grand Master level to take advantage of the many cooking quests available in Dalaran.
If you have prepared your gathering professions as I suggest, then you'll able to farm gold as soon as you step foot in Northrend. There are great Perfect World Money farming opportunities in both starter areas - Borean Tundra and Howling Fjord for both Horde and Alliance factions alike if you know where to look.
