My name is Qyune, and some of you may know me from my 12-Class All-The-Things Challenge, where we are trying to collect everything in the game. However, for the month of July, August, and going forward, we will also be including new gold-earning based challenges.
I am writing this as summary of my first 1-month long gold farming challenge and how I made enough gold to buy 9 – 10 WoW Tokens of the course of that time. The goal for this challenge was very simple: I wanted to see if it was feasible for someone to pay for Classic by playing as little time as possible in Retail (using Retail gold to pay for a WoW Token) from the perspective of a person who doesn’t really know much of the gold farming tactics.
About the Challenge
Below is a list of the guidelines I used for such our WoW Token Challenge:
- Player has a 110+ character
- Player is not familiar with common gold-farming tactics
- Player’s character on a low population realm
- Farm time is limited to an average of 2 hours per day
The thought process is to simulate a person coming back to play Classic and would like to (or can only) pay with WoW Tokens.
