Learn How To Farm the Right Way

Most classes these days have an AoE (Area of Effect) which means you can kill a lot of enemies at one time with little trouble. This is majorly important because you can kill so many at one time you will just loot all of the corpses to get the maximum amount of gold possible from anything, such as Cloth drops, BoE (Bind on Equip) greens or blues, and even just gold in general. The following classes have AoE’s that you can use to help in farming this gold.

AoE Love

Priest (Holy Nova)
Rogue (Fan of Knives)
Paladin (Consecration)
Warrior (Whirlwind)
Druid (Hurricane)
Mage (Blizzard)
Warlock (Seed of Corruption)
Shaman (Totem of Magma)
Hunter (Volley)
Death Knight (Death and Decay)

What Instances Should I Do?

This question is greatly dependant on how well you know your character, your level, and your gear that you have. The best instances are instances that you have no problem with pulling more than average amounts of enemies at one time and still live. The following instances have been very popular for farming for drops;

Scarlet Monestary Cathedral
Dire Maul
Zul Farak

Is there Specific Gear to Bring?

Ah. You got me on that one. The type of gear that you should bring with you is anything that will maximize your Health while also improving your best AoE spell so you can take down a lot of enemies at once very fast but also keeping yourself alive. The main thing with gear here is just making sure it is good enough for your level instances or heroic instances.

Addon Love

The addons that I would reccomend are ones that track your gold per hour and also ones that show different loot tables of enemies that you know you should be farming. You should also get some addons that bring fun to farming as we all know it gets a little boring some times. Here are some addons that I use to entertain myself along with providing help along the way.

Titan Panel adds a control panel bar on the top and/or bottom of the screen and allows a framework for extensive plugin support.
