Grinding will always find a way to get rid of boredom. With the release of TBC, however, there is another option! We can also strive for loot! I haven’t met one person yet who cleared their quest log at level 70.
The quests seem endless and can bring you an incredible amount of gold. When you reach level 70, quest rewards jump high enough to make it profitable to farm gold only from quests. You will receive a “golden” reward in exchange for experience.
In addition, you will receive rewards in the form of items and mob loot that you received after completing the quest.
It gets even better. Most of your wow TBC gold comes from items or gold rewards. This is great because each class can quest. The days where only Rogues, Hunters, and AOE Mages could grind gold are over!
You can earn even more money in a group than by yourself. The faster you complete the tasks, the faster you will receive rewards. It just means you get more gold per hour if most of your rewards come from completing quests. I usually run quests in groups of 2 or 3.
When you go on quests, check out Wowhead or Thottbot quests. You want to make sure you know exactly what you need to do and whether you are missing pieces for the puzzle. Many times it will let you know in advance if you’ll be grinding for hours to get quest drops.
The treasure hunt
Using this tool next to the “collector” I hunt for chests. The myth behind treasure chests is that they have better drop rates than regular mobs, and you have a better chance of finding epics or blues. I have never done research to find out if this is true or not. But let me tell you this, Chinese farmers had teleportation break-ins at one time before Blizzard did a hard job of security.
You’ve seen these teleport hacks used mostly in instances but saw them in use outside. I’m not sure how this hack worked or the mechanics of the program itself. Nor am I promoting that you should take advantage of it. My point is that this teleport got hacked, it was bouncing their characters across the screen, collecting crates at all spawn points.
This gave me the idea of a crate farm. At first, it was very difficult to find the starting spawn points for all chests and then farm them regularly. It was much easier once I found MapWoW. When using Map wow TBC gold, you can see all the spawn points in the chests, farm them once for yourself, and then they will be locked in your collector add-on. I collected most of my blues and some epics from the farm chest.
This is a very fun method to use. It takes a little more time but is more exciting than grinding mobs.
