There is a large number of the player base that only PVP because that's what they enjoy. For the most part they don't want to quest or do any type of dungeons which can really limit the amount of gold you take in if you don't play the auction house. If you're one of these players then this tip may help you out.
We all need gold to buy new gear if you are leveling new toons through PVP or you need some bling if you want to enchant and gem out your gear. Let's face it, enchants and gems can be really expensive depending on the type of upgrade you are looking for. So how can a hardcore PVPer make any gold?
One answer is using the the Honor Trade Goods NPC in either Stormwind or Orgrimmar to buy up trade goods in exchange for honor points. Some of the items might sell very well depending on your server's economy. Currently on my realm I can purchase a stack of 5 savage leather for 375 honor points then turn around and sell those same 5 savage leathers for just over 200g!
At one point it was profitable to purchase and resell stacks of embersilk cloth but now that prices have dropped, savage leather is the real money maker.
Plus look at the benefits of reaching the point of obtaining all the honor gear you can get. You will still be PVPing for fun but will be able to spend all that honor on trade goods and make some serious gold.
Thanks for checking in!
