In World of Warcraft, what you want more than anything else is gold. Without gold, you can't do anything, and you won't enjoy the game much. So let's look at how you can farm for gold.
First off, it's important to understand that farming is more than simply killing monsters. You can use farming to build and level up your character, and it can be just as entertaining as taking part in quests. When you are a high level character, farming is one of the best ways to make gold, and a great way to level up your character even further.
When should you start farming? Well, the general rule is that you should wait until you are at level 30 or higher. Below level 30, farming is unnecessary. Before you leave town and go farming you should grab a few good potions (trolls blood potions are good because they allow you to regenerate quickly) in order to heal.
Once you are fully equipped, you need to know where to farm. One of the most important things you need to look at is how quickly the monsters respawn. You'll want to pick areas where monsters respawn quickly so you don't have to wait around. Also, you'll need to look at how much XP you get from killing the monsters in an area, as well as what kind of items you can get from them.
Often, monsters will give you low XP for killing them, but will leave behind good items. If you come across a monster that is particularly hard to kill and you lose a lot of health from it, though, it's probably not worth your time fighting it. You just need to find a balance between the difficulty of killing the monster and the XP you get from it, and ideally you want to farm in areas where there are easy to kill monsters that leave behind significant experience points.
Finally, try to pick areas with not many other players. If you play on pVp servers, you'll often come across PK'ers where you farm who can steal your kills and gold. If an area has many players farming in it, then it may not be worth your time.
If you don't like the idea of farming at all, the other option is to simply buy gold and power leveling services, so that someone else does the hard work for you. This is a whole new topic and there are a lot of scams around, so you need to know where to look. That is why on my website I provide reviews of the best and most reputable sellers.
