The brief grinding gold guide for World of Warcraft that I’m going to illustrate next is based on long shot gold making methods. And what I want to say here, is that you need a little bit of luck to get the rare pets that can be found at the next 3 spots.
However, if you’re a skinner, your time won’t be totally wasted if you choose one of these 3 spots as your gold grinding destination. The mobs you’re going to grind on can be skinned for various types of leather. So, what to farm for and where?
1. Lethlor Ravine. The 1st spot I want to review in this short grinding gold guide is situated in eastern Badlands. There are plenty of Scalding Whelplings at the spot, 31 to be more accurate. They have the chance to drop a rare non-combat per, the Dark Whelpling. Even if you don’t get this pet, skinning these mobs you will get plenty of Thick and Heavy Leather which usually sells pretty well. These dragonkin mobs also drop Small Flame Sacs, ingredients used to cook Dragonbreath Chili, a very fun to use food, especially for PvP.
2. Itharius’s Cave. This place is in Swamp of Sorrows, in the southwestern corner. The mobs you’re going to grind on are actually not inside the cave, but all over the area in front of the cave. They are called Adolescent and Dreaming Whelps and they have the chance to drop the Tiny Emerald Whelpling, which sells for up to 2000g. This pet is so expensive because the whelps that drop it aren’t very many and if you choose this spot to grind, you will have to wait a while until they respawn. These mobs can be skinned and drop Heavy and Medium Leather.
3. Direforge Hill. The last place I’m going to point out in this brief grinding gold guide is in Wetlands, the middle area of Wetlands, to be more precise. There are 4 types of whelps here: Red, Crimson, Lost and Flamesnorting Whelps. They all can drop the Tiny Crimson Whelpling and by skinning them you will receive Light and Medium Leather.
Now, I have to warn you about this! Regardless of the professions your toon has, you can go and grind on the whelps at the locations I mentioned above. But if you don’t get the rare pets, without the skinner professions this will be a waste of time. So, if you really want to learn a few solid gold grinding methods, you should check a complete grinding gold guide for World of Warcraft.
