About the Author
About the Reviewers


Whenever a game has a currency or mechanism to buy things in-game, players become concerned with how to best acquire it, and preferably in large quantities. In World of Warcraft, gold drives the in-game economy and players spend hours every week trying to collect enough of it to play the rest of the game effectively. A select few take it one step further—they want to be on Azeroth's rich list, being able to buy whatever they want in-game, with gold being no concern.

Unfortunately, World of Warcraft is fraught with misinformation about how to obtain these levels of gold. This book aims to remove the fog and mystery of mega gold-making and teach the reader how to make the most gold, most efficiently.
