Another spot to farm a WoW vanity pet is the Hakkari Grounds in Zul’Gurub. I’m talking here about the Razzashi Hatchling. This vanity pet is harder to farm then the other hatchlings, but due to that, it can be sold for a lot more gold. When I get one I usually sell it for 1500-2000g.
Here is the Strategy:
Invite another level 60+ player and make a raid group with them (they can log out afterwards, as long as they remain in your raid group) to be able to enter Zul’Gurub.
Go to Zul’Gurub, in northeastern Stranglethorn Vale. Enter the instance and follow the path East. At Zanza’s Rise, follow the path South, up to Hakkari Grounds, where Bloodlord Mandokir is (see map).
Now, there are 3 packs of Razzashi Raptors (6 each pack), kill them all and loot their corpses. They drop the Razzashi Hatchling vanity pet. After you kill them all run out of the instance, reset it and repeat. Before Mandokir’s compound there are a few more Razzashi Raptors, but they are mixed with trolls which makes them harder to kill. I usually don’t waste time with those.
The Razzashi Hatchling doesn’t have quite a high drop rate, sometimes I don’t get one within 5 resets, but other times it drops at the first pull.
This is a good farming spot to use in adition to the methods you can learn from the Best WoW Gold Guides.
The Doomwalker is not inside the raid instance, it guards the entrance of Black Temple. It spawns at (73,44), in Shadowmoon Valley. Due to the nice loot, this mob is farmed by many, so you might not find it up, most of the times.
Since it’s a raid boss, it hits very hard, has a lot of HP. It cannot be soloed with all the classes in the game. If you want to kill it solo, to keep all the loot for yourself, bring a class with end game tanking gear. A blood-tank-DK or a feral-tank-druid should do. If you fail to kill it and die you will receive a debuff called Mark Of Death. It lasts for 15 min. and as long as you have it, the Doomwalker’s aura will 1-shot you and you won’t be able to make a new good attempt to kill him. Also, at 30% he enters berserk mode and this is the time you want to pop up your cooldowns.
Here is a video related to this:
The Doomwalker always drops 500g and 2 level 70 BoE items which can be sold for 200-250 at AH.
I usually kill this boss with a duo DK-tank, druid-healer to be sure of an 100% kill.

One the best spots to farm Wool Cloth and Linen Cloth is in Wetlands, at location (59,61). It’s a small camp with Mosshide Gnolls. What makes such a good spot to farm low level cloth scraps is the insane respawn rate of these mobs. Sometimes you kill them and they respwan instantly in front of you. I know it’s a bit hard for a Horde to come here, especially if you don’t have the FP in Arathi Highlands, at Hammerfall, but if you want a place to farm both these types of cloth in about 50%-50% drop rate it’s a good spot to come to.
In less then an hour I got 310 Wool Cloth and 298 Linen Cloth which is not bad, considering that on my server these sell sometimes for 20g/stack. It might not be a super spot to make 1000g in 5 min. but if you come here, with all the cloth you’ll get in one farming session you can level your Tailoring and Enchanting from 1 to 150 skill or so. Bring some AoE if possible, because it sucks just to single target them.
I hope that you will find my little WoW gold guide usefull. Stay tuned, more like this will come in the next days.

You can squeeze a lot of gold without leaving the Auction House in World of Warcraft if you know what to do. Here are a few basic rules:
1. Buy low, sell high anything that is on high demand (like cloth, enchantment reagents, flowers, ore etc). There’s a good example for this in the video below;
2. Buy materials for low prices, craft different items that are on high demand and then sell them for high prices;
3. Create monopoly. This means to buy all the items of a certain category (for example, buy all the Mithril Ore there is at AH) and double the price.
4. Buy expensive epic items that are hard to find and increase the price for 1-2000g as you resell them. A few good examples for epic items that can be sold for a lot of gold are the Battered Hilt or Cloak of the Untamed Predator.
If you choose this method to make some gold in World of Warcraft, the most important items you should go after, are the limited supply recipes. You know why? Because some of them are very important to skill up certain crafting professions. You can save a lot of money skilling up a craft with recipes that cannot be learned from the trainer, because they require less materials or cheap and easy to acquire materials. Players don’t know where to find them and they would rather buy them from the Auction House. Some recipes can be sold for quite high prices.
Also, the enchanting supplies that can be found at vendors have sometimes high prices. For example, a stack of low level enchanting dust can go up to even 50-60g, so buy these too, everytime you have the chance.
I found a couple of videos that explain this method very well. The videos are for Alliance only, but the Horde players can apply same tactics.
