Planning Out 22 New Profession Slots



My realm was connected to another on Monday and, besides the server "holy wars" going on in trade chat, the world has not ended.

After doing my normal gold-making routine (I'm not changing any prices until a week after the connection) I decided to create 11 new characters on the new realm.

11 new characters means 22 new profession slots. But which do I choose and where do I put them? Read on for some of my initial thoughts.

New Subreddit For The Power Word: Gold Community


A new subreddit has been created for readers, viewers, listeners, supporters, and fans of Power Word: Gold (AKA "The Power Word: Gold Nation").

/R/PWGNation is a subreddit built to let all everyone in the Power Word: Gold community come together to share and discuss gold-making ideas, ask and answer gold-making questions, and interact directly with me (Jim).

Its main purpose is to be a meeting place where people who enjoy Power Word: Gold can come together, share and socialize.

Being a "text post only" subreddit, /r/pwgnation is not designed for (and does not allow) self-promotion (including by Power Word: Gold itself).

I plan to be very active on the subreddit and the current moderators plan to add additional moderators picked directly from The Power Word: Gold Nation.

Head over to http://www.reddit.com/r/pwgnation and subscribe, submit ideas and questions, and enjoy yourself. If you want to easily keep tabs on new content you can also subscribe to the /r/PWGNation RSS feed.

My Current Gold-Making Roster Of Characters



With Connected Realms (possibly) coming my way the idea of adding 11 more characters is becoming a real possibility. With that in mind I thought I'd take some time today to go over my current gold-making roster of characters.

I'll be breaking the info into three main sections: professions, cooldowns and general gold-making activities. In doing so I hope to expose a bit more information about my own personal gold-making techniques. Read on for more.

Pet Sales by Kassandra [Hatchery Post]


Kassandra writes:

"Lately I have been dabbling with pet sales.  One of the things I like best about selling pets is the deposit on auctioning a caged pet is low, a mere one silver to run a twenty-four hour auction.  It would take me a hundred listings before I even lost a single gold piece."

Warlords of Draenor - Gold-Making and Beyond



In case you've been hiding under a rock and haven't heard Blizzcon was this last weekend and we got to learn about World of Warcraft's next expansion "Warlords of Draenor". Warlords is going to be set on Draenor 35 years in the past (you know, before being exploded and turned into Outlands).

While there is going to be lots of news and media in the lead up to the expansion release (which I'm predicting will be late-ish 2014) I thought I'd take some time to highlight a few of the new features that us gold-makers will be interested in. Read on past the jump for more.
