World of Warcraft Gold Farming Tips And Secrets – You Cant Miss

World of Warcraft Gold Farming Tips And Secrets – You Cant Miss

Gold farming in World of Warcraft has taken on a life of its own. It started with chinese gold farmers who were working as teams to completely mine all the gold in an area. When they mined an enormous amount they then put it into a gold selling market. They were able to get $100’s after doing basically no work for any of the gold. The techniques they used were found to be illegal and actually hurt the game. People however did research and found legit and easy ways to get up to 200 gold and hour.

These guides have been released on the internet by players who have become masters of World of Warcraft and would like to share the tips that made them that good. The guides that are available will show you what areas have more gold then others. This research on top gold farming locations will enable you to make more gold in a less amount of time.

So you have finally decided you need gold in order to enjoy Worl of Warcraft and have settled on farming to accomplish this task. Well let’s look at a few tips regarding farming for gold in World of Warcraft.

Tip number 1:

The first key to farming anything in World of Warcraft is the bags. The gold is in the bags. Early on when you start playing your bags will be small, what this means is your will have limited slots or space in the bags. This is due in part to the fact that you have no money, especially if this is your first toon. If you have a higher level toon, then they can send your new one money to buy bigger bags, or send bags themselves. The thing about bags is the more room you have the more you can hold. This is probably the single most important rule when performing World of Warcraft farming.

Think about it, if you are going through an instance or on a raid and you have no room, guess who isn’t getting any loot?

Tip number 2:

Bring plenty of bandages/water/food/mana potions with you. When farming, you are going to be in a lot of fights. This will deplete your health and mana (if you can cast spells). You will need to rest up between those fights if you get down on health and mana. It is important to be prepared. How much is enough? That depends on your character, but generally a stack of each is a good rule of thumb. If you can heal, you won’t need first aid and bandages, but in a pinch they can help. Mages can create food and water so be sure to make plenty before leaving.

The benefits of farming gold quickly is that you are able to level up quicker then many other players in the game. When you are able to level up this quickly and have this much gold you can buy more items and spells for your characters. Since having a strong character is necessary to survive in World of Warcraft why wouldn’t you want to get powerful as quickly as possible. The overall benefit of gold farming in World of Warcraft is being able to make as much gold as possible and sell any extra for a profit!

Tiny Crimson Whelpling Farming Guide – WoW Pets

The Tiny Crimson Whelpling is a rare pet that sells for quite a hefty sum on the Auction House.

Maybe you want it for yourself because you are a collector or maybe you just want to sell it on the Auction House for gold so you can buy the Game Time Token.

Either way, I will show you a terrific spot to farm this pet, how to keep motivated during the farm and how much gold you will make during the farm.

This pet has a 0.01% chance to drop so arm yourself with patience as this little guy might make you want to rip out your hair.

Helpful Addons

For this grind to be efficient I recommend the following Addons:

LootAppraiser – This addon will show you in real time how much money you made with the stuff you looted. You will see that time spent farming, the amount of gold made and it also features a ‘Destroy Trash’ button that gets rid of all the Grey items in your inventory. This will help you farm longer without having to go to a vendor.

Cross Realm Assist – This addon will help you hop realms. You will absolutely need this addon just to find a quiet realm where no one is around and you can farm in peace without sharing mobs with someone else.

Farming Spot

This place is located in the Wetlands, halfway the road up to Twilight Highlands.

In this place you will find Dragonmaw Whelpstealer’s and Ebon Slavehunter’s. There are 3 groups of these mobs, each with 3-6 mobs and the best part is, they spawn instantly.

Below you can see the spot on the map.

These monsters fight each other, one spawning on one side, the other on the other side, meeting in the middle and going at it.

This is absolutely the best place to farm the Tiny Crimson Whelpling, as you can also make some extra gold while waiting for the little dragon to drop.

Gems

In 15 minutes of farming, I got the following numbers:

320 Wool Cloth

208 Linen Cloth

29 Silk Cloth

18 Green BoE Items

2 Recipes

1 Agate and 1 Lesser Moonstone

All these items are worth around 650 gold on my server which is Argent Dawn – EU.

The green BoE Items are also a huge bonus for this grind, as very rare RP gear can drop, worth up to 5000 gold.

Farming Time

With this one I can not help. We could talk statistics and chances but it all depends on RNG. I spent 3 hours on my DK farming this spot and I did not get the pet. I farmed for 3 hours without stopping and it still did not drop.

On the plus side, I got almost 14000 gold in that time in Cloths, Recipes and Rare Items.

I got some blue BoE rare gear as well as a Buccaneer’s Vest that is worth 4000 gold on my server. Among these more rare items I also got several items worth 100-300 gold which were a nice addition to my total.

Although I was disappointed I did not get the pet, I still got some gold to show for my work.

Sheep breeds for a small farm

Selecting Sheep Breeds for Your Small Farm

There are an estimated 50 breeds of sheep in the United States alone, and more than 1000 worldwide. If you’re trying to decide which type of sheep best suits your small or hobby farm, the information can get a little overwhelming!

Perhaps the first thing to consider when selecting sheep is also the simplest: Hair or wool? Most breeds of wool sheep need to be shorn (their wool cut away) at least once per year, while hair sheep do not require shearing. Some breeds of wool sheep will shed their own wool, while others will absolutely require a helping hand. So if you’re not willing to learn to shear, or to spend the money to have someone do it for you, then a breed of hair sheep will be your obvious choice!

Other considerations:

Do you want to raise lambs for market or home-use?

Do you want to sell (or spin your own) wool?

Do you want to raise lambs that will be grown into ewes for breeding purposes?

Do you want dairy sheep for the purpose of producing milk, or cheeses such as Feta or Romano?

Do you want to show sheep in competition?

Are you interested in breeding a rare breed of sheep for preservation purposes?

Do you just want some pet sheep that will help mow the grass?

You should answer all of these questions, and then begin your research into sheep breeds. Hopefully this guide will help shed some light on the topic, as I introduce to you my top five picks of sheep breeds for various uses on the small farm.

My one and only Barbados Blackbelly ewe. How did I come by such a rare find? Even I don’t know! Just luck, I guess. | Source

Barbados Blackbelly – the endangered hair breed

Fiber type: Hair
Purpose: Meat and genetic preservation/rare breed conservation
Size: Small/Medium
Prolific?: Yes
Hardiness: Extremely hardy

The Barbados Blackbelly sheep evolved on the island of Barbados, as the name suggests. They descend from crosses of African hair sheep and European wool sheep, dating back as far as the 17th century. These hair sheep are not seasonal breeders, unlike most types of sheep, meaning that the ewes will have heat cycles throughout the year. Non-seasonal breeding can allow for more than one lamb crop per year, and the ewes are prolific, usually producing twins or even triplets.

Being a somewhat obscure hair sheep breed, with small adult body weight, the Barbados hasn’t seen much attention from commercial breeders and is therefore in danger of being placed on the threatened livestock species list. I’m pleased to report, however, that there is an increased demand for hair sheep in the U.S. as of late, so these guys are slowly making a comeback.

Notable and desirable traits of the Barbados include a resistance to disease, tolerance for different climates (especially hot and humid, and including cold climates), ability to tolerate a higher worm load than other types of sheep, and low-maintenance foraging skills.

The Barbados is certainly useful to the small farmer or homesteader as an easy-keeper and meat producer, and their unique genetics make them valuable both for cross-breeding and breed preservation purposes.

Looks to me like there are a couple Friesian crosses in this photo as well. The thin-faced ewe staring at the camera is Friesian. | Source

East Friesian – the dairy variety

Fiber type: Medium grade wool
Purpose: Dairy
Size: Large
Prolific?: Very
Hardiness: Not hardy

Though I have no personal experience with East Friesian sheep, I wanted to include them on this list because they are the choice for dairy sheep. Commercial dairy sheep operations generally use a 50% cross of the Friesian, because they are not a very hardy breed and adapt poorly to environments that differ from that which they evolved in.

That being said, it’s reported that in smaller flocks purebred Friesians do very well. They aren’t easy keepers, but that’s okay for us small farmers and homesteaders because we have the time and energy to give individual care to our animals.

Friesians produce upwards of three times as much milk per lactation as other breeds of sheep, a trait for which they have been bred. Their milk is excellent for producing many types of cheeses, and as raw and organic milk gains popularity in the U.S., so will sheep’s milk. In fact, the Friesians didn’t come to the U.S. until as late as the 1990s, but have been gaining in popularity and production ever since. They can be found in farms across the Midwest and along the East Coast into New England.

The small farmer or homesteader interested in raising dairy sheep would be wise to look into purchasing a Friesian or two, even if the plan is to cross the sheep with another breed. Just be aware that in order to produce all that extra milk, this breed of sheep requires extra nutrition during lactation. Personally, I wouldn’t keep East Friesian sheep on my farm due to there general lack of hardiness; then again, I’m not interested in milk production. If I were, I would want a Friesian. To preserve the dairy quality of the Friesian while side-stepping the animal’s lack of hardiness, I would probably cross it with a hardier breed such as the Lacaune or Cheviot.

Merino sheep | Source

Merino – a proven wool sheep

Fiber type: Fine, high-grade wool
Purpose: Wool, show competition
Size: Medium/Small
Prolific?: Yes
Hardiness: Good

The Merino is famous around the world for producing soft, fine, high-grade wool. If you’ve ever purchased athletic clothing or any high-end wool clothing, it’s likely woven from Merino wool.

Docile in nature, most Merino are polled (no horns), make good mothers, and are fairly hardy and adaptable animals. They’re bred for wool production, and don’t reach market weight as quickly as sheep that are bred for meat. This author happens to think they have one of the cutest faces of any sheep, but that’s beside the point.

Merino sheep are also a popular breed to use in competition sheep showing, and a specific breed standard can be located through a simple Google search.

For the small farmer or homesteader, Merino sheep would be a good choice for home meat production because they are easy keepers. Although the lambs won’t reach standard market rate as quickly as those of other breeds, small-scale operations can certainly afford to forgive this tidbit. Aside from needing to be shorn (as almost all wool sheep do, no matter the grade), they don’t require much special care or considerations. And if you can find a vendor to sell the wool to, or process the wool yourself into marketable products, I’d wager you can produce enough income from wool alone to at least have the Merinos paying their own keep.

One of my Polypay ewes. | Source

Polypay – the multi-purpose type

Fiber type: Good grade wool
Purpose: Meat, wool
Size: Large (ewes easily over 150lbs)
Prolific?: Very, multiple lamb crops per year possible
Hardiness: Good

The Polypay isn’t so much a “breed” of sheep as it is a hybrid type. It’s actually a four-way cross between Finnsheep/Rambouillet and Dorset/Targhee.

That seems kind of confusing, but basically the story behind the Polypay is that some producers got together in the 1970s and decided they wanted to create a new type of sheep that would meet specific demands. These included two lamb crops per year, one good wool crop per year, hardiness, good mothering skills, and a heavy carcass weight. The participating in the experiment found these various traits in the four breeds of sheep mentioned above, and set about combining different variations and crosses of these animals to create the “perfect” sheep.

I’m in favor of the Polypay (in fact, I own three of them) because they represent a wonderful phenomenon known as hybrid vigor. Hybrid vigor occurs when different, specialized breeds with different, specialized traits are bred with one another. Oftentimes, the best and most desirable traits of each breed involved in the cross will show up in the offspring. The interesting thing is that it’s often the case that when breeding hybrids to hybrids, they don’t “breed true” – that is, the traits that were present in the parents stop showing up in the offspring, or show up to a lesser degree, at a certain point. This is a result of less dominant traits that may have been “hidden” in the DNA beginning to show through as more dominant traits are bred out.

Cool stuff, wouldn’t you say?

You’ve probably noted that I value genetic diversity in livestock animals, even over production efficiency, so I’m a proud owner of the large-sized, hardy, highly prolific Polypay. And I can’t wait to see what kind of interesting crosses and genetic throw-backs I get out of my girls.

For the small farmer, Polypays are an excellent choice of sheep. They can breed year-round, throw two lamb crops per year, their wool is good enough to sell, and yearling ewes are able to breed and successfully produce twins or more. They’re easy to obtain, easy to keep healthy, easy to breed, and easy to sell.

Suffolk ewe and large lamb. | Source

Suffolk – the popular meat sheep

Fiber type: Medium wool
Purpose: Meat, breeding stock, show competition
Size: Very large
Prolific?: Very
Hardiness: Good

The Suffolk is easily one of the most popular breeds of sheep for meat production. Created prior to the 19th century by crossing the meaty and muscular Southdown with the hardy and semi-wild Norfolk Horned sheep, the Suffolk developed qualities taken from both its parent breeds and combined them well.

Suffolks are easily distinguishable from other breeds of sheep by their white wool, black faces, and long, black legs. They are almost always polled, and mature ewes can weigh up to 250 pounds.

Large and hearty, good mothers, and prolific to boot, it’s no wonder the Suffolk is many a farmer’s breed of choice for meat sheep.

Like the Merino, the Suffolk is also a popular sheep for showing in competition.

Whether for home-use lamb or mutton, or for producing lambs to sell to customers or to market, the Suffolk sheep would be a good addition to a small farmer’s or homesteader’s flock. Producers of Suffolk must remember to use a de-wormer for their sheep on a regular schedule, as these animals don’t perform well with a high worm load. Another consideration is that, while adult Suffolks generally do very well on pasture and forage, the lambs may need supplemental grain in order to reach ideal market weight quickly. This problem can be sidestepped by lambing earlier in the season, or can simply be ignored.

Additionally, though it has been said that Suffolk are easy-lambers, I have it on good authority that this is not always the case; therefore, you should monitor your Suffolk ewes carefully as lambing approaches to avoid losses.

The lamb in the foreground and ewe in the background are both Hog Islands. | Source

First Honorable Mention – The Hog Island Sheep

Fiber type: Medium grade wool
Purpose: Genetic preservation/breed conservation, meat, wool
Size: Small/Average
Prolific?: Moderately; full-grown ewes usually produce twins
Hardiness: Extremely hardy

The Hog Island Sheep takes its name from a small island off the coast of Virginia. The ancestors of the Hog Island Sheep were brought to the island in the 18th century, and abandoned sometime in the early twentieth century.

The thousands of sheep went “feral,” and were later removed from the island in the mid-twentieth century when conservation groups deemed that their presence on the island was destructive to the native habitat.

Because of the nearly-two centuries of isolation, the Hog Island Sheep is genetically unique, especially among American sheep breeds. In fact, this is one of the few (if not the only) breed of sheep that prefers to browse rather than graze, much like a goat.

What makes this breed of sheep so interesting to me is its ability to forage, and thrive on very little when compared to more commercial and modern breeds of sheep. Here is an animal that has not been selectively bred by man to exhibit certain qualities, such as excellent wool, fast growth rate, multiple births, increased lactation, or heavy finished weight. While all of these modern traits may seem superior, the fact of the matter is that other aspects of the animal suffer when only one is emphasized in breeding practices.

The Hog Island Sheep is a veritable treasure trove of untapped genetic diversity, which, if bred into our more popular, commercial sheep breeds, would create advanced hybrid vigor and simultaneously help to “breed out” some of the health issues we have unintentionally created.

My experience with Hog Island Sheep involved crossing a ram with Dorset ewes (a heavy meat breed). The offspring exhibited increased growth rate withoutsupplemental grain, and not one lamb of this cross suffered from scours, pinkeye, or any other debilitation. These offspring were again bred to a Hog Island ram, and the next generation exhibited similar improvements in growth rate and general hardiness.

My little experiment isn’t enough to convince large sheep producers to consider the hog island, but as a farm-owner and sheep producer, you can bet I’ll be going to great lengths (and probably costs) to procure a couple of Hog Island Sheep to increase and strengthen the genetic diversity of my flock.

Considering that the Hog Island is one of the most critically endangered sheep in the world, and with only a few thousand specimens in the United States, I can only hope that my efforts will pay off and help to preserve this genetic cache… before it’s lost forever.

One of my new mixed-up crossbreed mutt ewe lambs. Her mother is a Polypay (which as you know, is a composite of 4 distinct breeds), her sire…? Even her previous owner wasn’t sure! Maybe an Icelandic, maybe a Brown Mountain. | Source

Second Honorable Mention – the crossed-up mutt sheep

Fiber type: Varies
Purpose: Varies, genetic diversification
Size: Varies
Prolific?: Usually
Hardiness: Usually hardy

I’d like to close this article with a shout out to the “mutt sheep,” which is a catch-all term I’m going to use to describe any nondescript, non-distinct type of sheep that might be grazing the pastures of small farms across the world. These sheep don’t belong to any particular breed, and while some of their characteristics might be recognizable as originating from (or being the originators of) popular, commercial breeds, they are successfully helping small farmers like me to make a living.

I understand why huge operations rely on just one or two specific breeds of sheep to turn a profit. With so many animals, the producer doesn’t have time to closely monitor each individual of the flock. So commercial operations consist of a limited gene pool, and must be careful not to breed too closely over too many generations.

But the flock of mutt sheep has less to worry about. With greater genetic diversity comes greater potential for desirable traits, as well as undesirable ones. Luckily, the small farmer has few enough animals to be able to keep an eye on things, and make sure that less-than-desirable animals aren’t kept as breeding stock.

The mutt sheep are less likely to have damaging traits bred into their flock, such as blindness, lameness, a propensity for cancers or cysts, deafness, or a low tolerance for disease or worms. And since variety is, as they say, the spice of life, isn’t a monosyllabic flock of sheep with their matching colors, identical heights and weights, and utterly predictable offspring just kind of boring?

I’ll take my chances with the cross breeds and mutts, and be sure to let you all know how it goes.
