World of warcraft, the most popular MMORPG to date, has just like any other fantasy based RPG its own currency exchange system. The currency exchange works in WOW(world of warcraft), with three sets of coins, copper coins, and with a hundred copper coins it will equal one silver coin, with a hundred silver coins it will equal one gold coin. Now World of warcraft gold is what everybody needs to thrive, there is hardly any advancement without working your characters toon butt off on a WoW gold farming rampage, almost sounds like real life.The difference from earning money in the real world and earning a living in world of warcraft is that in WOW you can bash someone’s head in and steal his money you won’t be put on charges, and in the game you chose whatever field you chose to go into. Yes in the game of world of warcraft you can pick and chose what job you’d like your avatar to specialize in and that is where a lot of the big cash comes in.
There are ten primary professions you can have alchemy, blacksmithing, enchanting, engineering, herbalism, mining, leatherworking, skinning, and tailoring. Now some of these professions go together with others such as mining and blacksmithing, you’ll need the metal the mining gives you to blacksmith with into weapons and armor.
There are three secondary professions which are first aid, cooking and fishing. You can learn all three of the secondary professions but only two of the primaries so chose wisely. You will gain lots of coin selling your special talents you pick, to others, not venders mind you, there are general prices that venders buy items off of you for, and the price the venders buy the items from you for is much lower then what you can get for them if you sell the items on your own to other players.The more you use your profession the better you will become at it and the more specialized you will become to it. You can get so high that people will seek certain items only you and those of your level will be able to create for them, at this point you can name your price. Alternatively if you want to skip the whole having a profession thing then in my opinion you’re only other shot is questing. Taking adventure after adventure selling the spoils and keeping all the loot you find off of everyone you beat, the old fashion way. While the later might sound like a better road to travel since having a profession is just like real life, consider that fact that without that profession you might just end up a poor troll or sad Paladin in the world of WoW.
Professions and trade skills are not the only professions that can earn you cash, gold and money. You can easily farm large groups of mobs using area of effect spells or even kill high end bosses and mobs to acquire items of higher value. Using heavy tanks are often the key to killing strong single mobs while using a caster with an area of effect ability are able to kill lower level mobs but at larger quantities.
