Rhidach’s testing something fancy and I think I might just try it for myself. Gold’s all over the place in WoW, what with every quest and dungeon rewarding you a fortune large enough to buy a seaside holiday, but there’s always room for more gold in your purse.
Rhidach’s recounting his experiments using the Potion of Treasure Finding and then finding a prime monster-grinding spot. Rhidach tells us exactly where he went to grind monsters and relieve them of their hidden treasure chests, thanks to the potion. He even gives tips on How Not To Die ™, given the area he chose is so full of monsters and they have a way of knocking 15% of a bod’s health off a time.
I had four Potions of Treasure Finding in my bags, and on a lark I headed over to Deepholm to do some AOE farming and see if I could make some decent coin out of it. I did some research on what spots were optimal, and it turns out the the best place had been hotfix nerfed two days ago. Drat. … Between the mobs dropping 15-40 silver each, looting about 18 tiny chests (and thus the contents), and various greys and greens, I probably made…
Made how much? That’d be telling! It might not be the best way to make money out there but it’s something a bit different, and something to do out in the field. This is a trick for anyone, provided a bit of due care and planning. But let’s face it – getting smashed in the face by hundreds of irritated monsters is right up a tank’s alley – why not make it a gold making setup, meatshields?
What about you – have you tried combining grinding with potion of treasure finding – how did it go, and do you have any tips to share?
