One of the methods I have used to make some gold is very easy, all you need is access to Dalaran and a few gold and patience. The externals from the WoTLK expansion sell very well and can sell for high amounts because of their limited supply. Why are they limited? People do not want to farm, people do not store them in their banks for a rainy day when they need them on alt and bots do not farm them because the potential sales are too low for them to bother. Method 1 Buy them cheap and resell them. The eternal fire, air, shadow and earth are in more demand than others because of their recipes uses for people to level professions. I buy these when they are listed in the AH under 15 gold, sometimes I will go as high as 25 and even higher for fire. I relist them for 35 to 40 gold for earth and shadow. Air goes for 50 gold and fire goes as high as 75 gold. Fire has more potential not just because of how many recipes they are used in, but they are a necessity for those wanting to craft the mekingeer chopper. The chopper requires titansteel bars and to craft those they need eternal fire. Because of this supply chain, I often find that titansteel bars are only available if there are eternal fire available and that is not always the case. So people are willing to pay for them. As you may know, I hate farming unless it is Auction House farming! Method 2 Buy Frozen Orbs. This is where Dalaran comes into the picture. Most people have forgotten about the trader by the AH in Dalaran who will trade Frozen Orbs for several different items, one of which is eternal fire. I find Frozen Orbs on the AH for 5 gold to 35 gold all the time....buy them up and trade them for eternal fire and list them on the AH for 75 gold. Easy profits! These 2 methods alone will net me about 1k a week in profits for about 10 minutes work or less.
