    My main will be a Warrior... but i was going to level that no life style with some guildies and then level my 5box team when i have downtime from farming pre-raid bis.

    I haven't multiboxed on private servers (Just Legion/BFA) so i have no real idea at what the best gold making strategy is for us boxers. I know that we should have professions maxed out for stuff like transmutes etc.. but i was wondering what the best "farming" method is?

    I had a plan to level 4 warlocks and 1 priest, as i think this will be the clearcut winner when it comes to farming outdoor content for cloth etc... but i don't think it would be great for anything other than that.

    I know tribute runs are great for 1 toon if you can solo them, but i assume it doesn't scale well with 5 toons? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Looking for advice!!
    I don't think there's any consensus yet as to what is the best gold / hour for a boxer - and I guess it will be hard to tell until the economy is stable.

    If you're good at it, most likely flipping / playing the AH will be the best use of your time and can be done at the same time as you're running instances.

    Peregrine mentioned profession cooldowns, which has historically been nice for boxers, but keep in mind the initial cost of getting your tradeskills to that level, along with the time required to skill up and have multiple teams levelled and up.

    My guess would be that the apart from playing the AH and cooldowns, the best gold/hour you can get as a boxer, would be farming something that is more efficient to do in a group. Such as Righteous Orb runs, Dire Maul runs (in phase 2), BoE/cloth/gold runs in instances etc. But it will depend on what the price levels are on the auction house.

    There seems to be a lot of interest in the 4 x warrior + healer / , which would synergize well with your choice of main. You could also go with a spell-cleave setup and have your warrior as puller.

    hey how can i boost my alts fast with a 60 main?

    hey guys, im going to have access to three accounts when classic launches.

    I was thinking of ways to farm gold. Some questions:

    1.) Banging out a handful of alts
    - Which profressions are best in phase 1 considering ease of leveling and payoff
    - Does profession profitability change by phase?

    2.) Parking groups of alts at various farms
    - Mauradon is the classic for solo hunters/warlocks, are there any new/better farms that open up with the possibility of 3 boxed characters?
    - Which instances and what composition (e.g. 2 hunters, druid) and why? I was considering sunken temple for example
    - Might this also change by phase?

    Also would you guys indulge me and brainstorm a few ideas?

    What composition would be best for various gold farms
    - E.g. sunken temple with 3 characters: 2 warriors 1 paladin? 2 hunters 1 druid?
    - Why or why not? e.g. Ease of leveling and gearing the farming character, speed and ease with which the comp clears the farm?

    I was considering 2 warriors 1 paladin, 2 mages 1 priest, 2 hunters 1 paladin

    is 3 man farming strat live for orbs feasible? what comp? 2 hunters and a druid?

    Hi and thank you for the great info, could you please elaborate a bit on the AFK mode method or redirect me to a guide? I don't quite understand what you mean. I 10-box gather on retail to feed my main but it feels like Classic really limits me to 5-box if I want to farm gold efficiently so any input on gold making with over 5 accounts would be a big help and much appreciated! Either way thanks and I hope you have a wonderful time in Classic :-)

    I don't know that Mooncloth will be in Phase 1 or useful. Mooncloth Gear Recipes are from Dire Maul, which doesn't open til Phase 2 right? I haven't seen anyone confirm that the recipe is in Phase 1 with Qia, and I'm not sure Mooncloth is even useful until Dire Maul.

    Wowhead says the bag Recipe drops off Lethon....He's Phase 4....so no mooncloth bags until Phase 4 I hope I'm wrong, but all data points to Mooncloth being useless for quite a while.

    I assume Mooncloth is in phase 1 since Truefaith Vestments was changed in 1.3 to not be soulbound so must have been added before that.

    In 1.3 Mooncloth Bag was also changed to uncommon quality, so I assume they would also exist in phase 1.
    I think Mooncloth Bag recipe is a world drop (classicdb and normal wowhead shows it as a world drop).

    What does the "paired with 5x setups" allude to?

    I understand the leveraging of the long cooldown on the alchemy and tailoring but don't understand the setups reference.

    I think he means 5 teams with 5 characters in each - so 25xalchemy cooldowns and 25xtailoring cooldowns

    That would be correct.
