    Default Gold making guide for BFA 8.3 (retail)

    I feel like this question gets asked a lot around here, and it popped into my head today - why not just show what I do when I need to make some gold. It's not really an infomercial or anything, not selling or hawking any wares. I'm hoping this just helps the community on giving guides to what is commonly asked.
    I took a snippet of 30 minutes to explain the process and didn't speed run or find a crazy route and was still able to average 100k gold an hour. I hope this method works for you if that's your goal and perhaps reference this in the future.

    If you'd like any other tutorial videos let me know. I'm having fun with this kind of stuff lately

    I also condensed the video into the very specific part of the actual hotkeys you need to make.

    I'd still suggest the longer video of course but I know some just want the meat without the extra.

    Thank you so much for this

    Also wanted to ask what your take is on server population for farming?

    We have 2 pve servers on the EU that are busy - one is very Horde dominant, the other very Alliance - stuff seems to sell for slightly higher on the Alliance, but the total amount of a herbs available on the auction house differs - like river bud is like 80k on Horde and 38k for Alliance - a lot of people went Horde.

    My question is which server would be better, or would farming on a medium pop server yield more profit?

    You are lucky having the combination of decent herb prices and the cheaper US token. Winters kiss is 2g on my server atm (most others are 5g max) and the EU token over 190k so this doesn't work as well right now. Nazjatar has been amazing though but the problem now is there are so many ppl herbing that there is hardly any time of the day where it is quiet enough to get the full benefit of the inflated price of Zinanthid. I currently only manage to gather about 1/3 of what I used to be able to get.

    It really feels like Naz just doesn't have that many nodes to begin with.

    Winters kiss is just under 6g atm on my server.

    How much are tokens at the moment in the US?

    <3 Thanks Selz

    To the others, I know the market fluctuates quite a bit, perhaps sometimes this isn't the best method if the prices drop super low.
    Mining is also another option that doesn't seem to be touched as much and you can use the Hivemind mount for this - didn't show it in the video but I can make one. So you can hypothetically gather that even faster and you don't even need druids.

    I'm on Alliance so I mostly run into Horde players, I keep warmode on and just blast them if I see them. Basically able to control your territory this way.

    I only have the Hivemind on my Pally, x3 Hunters Disc Priest team (never doing it again) atm wanted to try gearing them a bit. May make a 5 box boomkin team for farming with.

    I see in your video you can get on your Hivemind really quick - I have had nightmares with it.. are you using interact with mouseover for that?

    @Ellay I am interested in your boxing setup.. are you using GSE macros for your team or is it all done in isboxer?

    The problem we see now, comes down to very bad game design - everyone have left Nazjatar for the new 8.3 zones.

    1, So more people are put in same phase/shard fighting over the same note (you see more multiboxers/bots).
    2. Blizz fail not to add herb/ore to the new zones are a big mistake - only Dredged Leather was add.
    3. Most people only goes to Nazjatar to farm.
    4. We have only one small zone to farm for herbs, that is needed for Raid/M+.

    I totally agree. I may just farm all the other herbs then ores/skinning on top.

    I use a combination of GSE and Isboxer. I plan on eventually making a video of my setup as I feel I have some pretty nifty settings happening but at the same time I know others have perfected their layout even better. So hopefully it brings even further contribution.
