WotLK Classic Gold – Daily Quests

WotLK Classic Gold Daily Quests

Daily quests are the best, lowest common denominator method WotLK Classic gold making for any player. Any level 80 character can do it regardless of their class, spec, gear, or current economic status in-game. If you are a new (or poor) player and want to get into more advanced gold making, WotLK Classic daily quests are where you start to save up capital to move on to more profitable activities. If I know nothing about you and you ask me how to make gold in WotLK Classic, I’ll start by telling you to do your daily quests.

Best WotLK Classic Daily Quests To Make Gold – Before Argent Tournament

You are limited to 25 daily quests per day. These are the 25 best daily quests to do for making gold in WotLK Classic before the Argent Tournament is available. This list is based on the highest paying daily quests, the amount of travel time required to get from quest hub to quest hub, and not requiring a group. Together this gives you an ideal gold per hour route to run.

~530 gold per day possible, likely more if you do both professional daily quests

Daily quest hubs, from Dalaran to Storm Peaks to Icecrown

If you need to do other daily quests for professions or reputations then continue to do those, then add in as many of these quests as possible. Later on, you’ll be able to focus on gold only.


Dalaran Daily Quests

1. Jewelcrafting Daily – Timothy Jones

If you have jewelcrafting as a profession then this daily is the best paying one in the game (after you no longer need the tokens to buy recipes). Turn in the Dalaran Jewelcrafter’s Token for a Dragon’s Eye, which you can then sell at the auction house.

2. Fishing Daily – Marcia Chase

Fishing is a great profession to have skilled up on at least one level 80 character. The fishing daily awards Bag of Fishing Treasure, which contains random rewards. Some are low value, but there are also some high-value items available you can sell. If you don’t mind the reward RNG this should be on your daily to-do list.


Storm Peaks Daily Quests for Gold

All of these quests are given by the Sons of Hodir, which is one of the more important factions you want to earn Exalted with. You’ll need to start the quest They Took Our Men and follow the series to unlock access to the Sons of Hodir. You can do this as early as level 77. As you gain reputation you’ll unlock more daily quests. Do as many as you can each day and continue to use them for making gold through the first half of WotLK Classic.

Icecrown Daily Quests for Gold

You’ll do the remaining of your daily quests at various quest hubs in Icecrown. To access all of these daily quests in WotLK Classic you’ll need to have unlocked all areas of Icecrown. That is done by completing the regular quest series, which leads you from hub to hub and changes the world around you as tasks are completed. Remember, you earn good gold from completing regular quests at level 80, so it is worth your time to unlock all of these daily quests.

Ymirheim

Alliance and Horde have their versions of the same quests. Each also has its own camp just outside of Ymirheim.
