What About Earning 1,000 Gold in 3 Minutes?
When people want to make gold, they generally think big or go mining for hours or so. It is a way to do it, but not the only way to do it.
Since my AH characters are level one, and since I like challenges, well, I want also to make them work and get gold without doing much.

In fact, with an investment of around 7 gold, without leaving Ironforge, you can make around 1,000 gold in a few minutes.
All you have to do is to go around Ironforge, buy some of the rare supplies and sell them in AH. Your income will depend on the realm, of course, of the market on your realm, of the competition and of how many of these limited supplies you can put your hands on. Since the limited supplies are… limited, it means that they might not be available from the vendor at the moment you want to buy them.
Do you feel lucky?
Well, here is the route with the stops and below the map, you can see what to buy where, for how much and how much to sell it for. Please note that prices are depending on many things on your realm, so they might not match, and you might have to undercut a lot. And well… If you really don’t sell anything at all, you will have lost 5 minutes and 7 gold. No big deal, uh? (There is a route like that for Horde and I will write about it a bit later )
