WoW loot farming isn’t exactly the best way to make gold in this game. However, it’s 100% profit. The only thing that you will be investing is your time.
Although the best gold farming method is buying and reselling stuff at the Auction House for profits, you can make decent money if you know where, what and how to farm. So, here are two excellent spots for WoW loot farming.
The Underbog – Sanguine Hibiscus
Sanguine Hibiscus is a herb that doesn’t require Herbalism to be picked. It can be found inside The Underbog in Zangarmarsh. This herb is required in stacks of 5, to complete a quest that grants reputation with the Sporeggar faction. Many players raise their reputation with this faction nowadays, to be able to buy the Tiny Spore Bat that the Sporeggar Quartermaster sells.
Now, farming Sanguine Hibiscus is not very difficult at all. All you have to do is just go to The Underbog and gather all the Sanguine Hibiscus nodes that pop between the entrance and the bridge that leads to the second boss. Then simply return to the entrance, exit, reset and repeat. You usually get about 20-25 Sanguine Hibiscus per run. The plant-like mobs inside and the spore bats also drop this herb and you can grind of them if you want.
A stack of 5 hibiscus sells for up to 100g sometimes. The average price for a stack of 5 is 50g though.
Shadowmoon Valley – The Doomwalker
The second WoW loot farming spot is in the eastern part of Shadowmoon Valley. The Doomwalker is the guardian of the entrance to the Black Temple. Although is a difficult mob to defeat with a level 80 tank, it shouldn’t be a problem to defeat with any level 85 class. Rogues might have a problem killing this boss, but I can’t tell you that for sure, I haven’t tried it with my Rogue.
The most important ability of the boss is its Crush Armor, an armor debuff that stacks and reduces 10% of your armor per stack. If you accumulate too many stacks, the boss’ attacks will become considerably powerful. Anyway, as I said, with a level 85 character, with a bit of mitigation, and some pots, this boss shouldn’t be difficult. However, to make sure you kill it, a Hunter, a Death Knight or Paladin are the most indicated classes to farm it.
The Doomwalker drops various epic BoE items which look cool and players will buy them to change the appearance of their armor. Some of the items like the Ethereum Nexus-Reaver or Talon of the Tempest sell for over 1000g.
The part that sucks about this boss is that it has a 2-3 days respawn cooldown. And if you’re not there when it spawns, someone else will kill it. I usually have my Hunter logged there and check the spot every morning.
