In world of warcraft, your character can choose two primary professions, such as tailoring, jewelcrafting and mining. Personally, I love mining most. Mining is an exciting profession which can provide you with raw materials. You can benefit from selling them on the auction house. As an experienced player, here are some tips for beginners to use mining better.
1 To become a miner
Now you are ready to become a miner, you should visit your local mining trainer for some training skills first. Trainers can be found in some beginning area towns or other major cities such as Dun Morogh and Stormwind city.
After learning the basic mining skills, open you skill book and find the “find minerals” option which can help you find a vein. If you are near the point in the mine, the site will show up in the miniature map. As a beginner, you should mining ore in lower level areas. If you hover your cursor over the ore before mining it, the name of the type of ore and a color associated with the likelihood you will gain skill points for collecting the ore. Grey means no skill points will be earned, green means your chances of leveling are poor, yellow is standard and orange is the greatest chance of gaining a skill point.
2 Make your own mining maps
Since you mining materials in every zone around the world of warcraft, it is necessary to make your own maps. The “Gatherer addon” will make a permanent mark on your main map every time you find an ore node (as well as herbs and treasure cheats). This is particular useful if you travel through the zone a second time, or if you are circling the zone for your gathering. Unless you will go through any zone for only one time, it is useful indeed.
3 Mining for gold
Mining for gold is probably the primary reason for many players to become a miner. Well, in order to sell ore in your wow account well, you should know how to price at first.
Drop by your favorite auction house and check out the prices for the various types of ore. The prices will run from 1 gold for a stack of 20 copper ore to 20+ gold for stacks of the rarer ores such as silver ore according to the server and the demand of the moment. You should check out the bars such as copper bars and silver bars as well. Sometimes the raw ore will sell for a lot more than the bars that are smelted from the ore. In addition, having an auction house mule will make your selling life easier.
