    Default Vanilla group farming spots

    Any tips towards what's the best gold / hr farm spot as a level 60 group?

    I'm assuming Devilsaurs will pretty much be camped 24/7.

    Apart from that, eko raids? Dungeons? (not sure what dungeons will yield best gold/hr)

    Without personal loot wont farming be the same with one toon or a dozen?

    I was planning on dungeons for gold, the hardest content I can get them into. But if they do personal loot yeah I'll farm a bit, I like the out-of-the-way caves where by the time you run through the mobs at the entrance are spawning again.

    Instances will almost assuredly be good since the other 4 million scrubs won't be vying for the same limited spawns. I expect mineral/herb nodes to be great money too as long as you level first so you can get to the higher-level nodes safely.

    Am i missing something?
    I mean, will we be able to farm and buy wowtokens...and/or turn the gold we earn in classic into gametime?

    Live server: 190k for 1 wow token.
    Classic: "5g" for 1 wow token..

    If this is the case, yes it will be more farming locations potensials. Though personally i played classic to death and wont touch it. The levelling process was annoying and a lenghty affair.

    I seem to remember (I started in BC) that things like riding were extremely expensive and you had to buy them on each account. Would take you months to save up enough without some sort of farming.

    There is no official word on that yet - but given that the baseline is 1.12 functionality, I wouldn't expect tokens.

    Level 40 riding isn't that bad, but level 60 riding plus mount is around 1000g - which for a solo player just farming mobs will take something in the area of 10-20 hours of farming (and of course, for boxers its 1000g per char unless you have warlocks or paladins)

    It will be the same, but a team can go places a single player can't. So it opens up farming of group content for gold - recipies/boe items that only drops in instances etc.

    one to think about would be Frostwhisper Gorge in Winterspring. Especially if you can get to level 60 with your group pretty quickly. I recall those elites having descent drops and the chance to drop the eye epic for 1/2 the priest staff (the other half off MC Domo chest).
    With a team of 5, you will mow down those elites.

    Yeah, Devilsaurs, Maraudon gold farming runs, Tyr's Hand in EPL, a few others for sure.

    Trash farming raids for BoE's and Hakkari Bijou in is doable with a decent tank or if you box more than 5. Especially with hunters or mages. Hunters can FD or trap pull so you only have to kill one mob at a time, frost mages can allow your tank to kite. A single decent BoE drop can sell for several hundred gold up to a thousand depending on the item. There's a fire damage ring from Naxx trash that is BiS for mages. There's also a nice caster staff from ZG trash.

    Other than that, just farming dungeons is your best bet. Tribute runs for crafting mats and rare books will earn you around 150/hour. You can also charge people for fast tribute runs once you get efficient at it. Some people will pay 20g+ for a fast run and not to have to roll against other players for their preraid BIS. Farming BRD for dark iron ore, mats, BoE's, etc.

    Where you farm depends on what the market for stuff is like on your server.

    I have to say though, even as a boxer "farming" is still far less profitable than simply using the auction house well.
