Hey guys, first post here but thought I'd share something with y'all that I have been doing for a long time now to make my gold.
So as the title says, I make all my money from PICKPOCKETING. I farm Cofanetto Pesante
for people wanting title. Most people farm LBRS but there's a much, MUCH faster way to get them. I can easily make 200k+ a day of farming with my method.
You will need a rogue for this. DON'T WORRY IF YOU DON'T HAVE A ROGUE! You can make a level 100 trial rogue and farm this and it will work equally as well as a level 110.
Create the trial rogue and skip all the intro stuff, skip dalaran, do not get your artifact and do not level the rogue.Once you do all these steps, your trial rogue will last 8 hours of /played time until the character gets locked. So make sure you mail all of your boxes before then, delete the character and repeat. Teleport to your home city and head to the Burning Steppes
So off to the farm, to speed up the process we will need the following macro:
showtooltip Pick Pocket
/cast pick pocket
For the addon portion we will only need 1: Xloot
(This is so you don't have to loot all the pickpocketing junk to save space in your bags)
TSM is completely optional, but it allows you to quickly send all of your junkboxes using the "Quick send" tab.
For setting up the Xloot auto loot, type /xloot in game:
- Scroll down to "Auto-Looting"
- Turn "Auto Loot Currency" to Always
- Turn "Auto Loot Listed items" to Always
- Input "Heavy Junkbox" into "Items to Loot"
- Click Okay, you can change additional settings as you like. I keep loot quest and loot trade goods to always.
: In the Burning Steppes just east of Blackrock Stronghold there are 4 packs of mobs that come in a 5x5 pattern and some extra mobs on the sides as well as some patrollers. These are the mobs that we will be focusing on for this farm. There are 4 packs of 5x5 mobs in the area. One is hidden behind a small mountain, if you do not pickpocket them and kill them it will slow your farming down dramatically and you'll have to wait for their timer respawn.
Using the macro and addon above will ensure the most efficient farming that I've been able to create.
The mobs in the 5x5 grid, you want to stealth into the middle so you can stay in 1 spot while pickpocketing all of them.Once you've pickpocketed all of them use an AOE like Fan Of Knives in my case to kill them all. (I also loot them because they can drop some epics such as Skullflame shield that can sell for a lot, most of the items are trash though and don't sellf or much). These mobs force respawn if you've killed enough so it's important that you kill the stragglers and the patrollers. Run around the camp and pickpocket all of the mobs, kill them and move to the next group.
While moving from 1 group to another you should pickpocket and kill the single mobs by themselves that are inbetween route that you take. It helps with the force respawn. Do a loop around the area and you should be able to average 100+ boxes an hour. I've gotten as much as 144 in an hour but never less than 100.Selling the boxes:
These boxes are NOT to be unlocked, rather sold as is (locked) so people can turn in. Each realm is different, I could see there being more people wanting to buy the junkboxes on RP realms but hasn't effected my ability to sell them not being on an RP server. Since these boxes cannot be put on the AH you can pretty much name your own price (Within reason) and people will usually buy them. I typically farm 200+ before I list them in trade chat. I have never spent more than a couple of hours advertising before I find a buyer. I price mine at 300g each. I've got a bank character with a guild bank with 6 tabs dedicated to these boxes, that is the kind of demand that I get for them.
Once I find a buyer, they usually want EVERYTHING that I have, the whole lot goes. The easiest way for me to do this is to keep all of my boxes in the guild bank and set permissions for each rank. Once I receive payment I will invite them to the guild and allow them to take their boxes at their own leisure; at their own pace because these boxes will definitely fill up your inventory very quickly. Most customers haven't started the Corvolesto
reputation portion of the title so they require roughly 1400 lockboxes to get their required reputation. That being said most of my customers are repeat customers. I usually have 1 person that I will farm all the boxes for until they get Exalted, then I move on to the next. I almost always have a buyer in line ready to go.Mailing boxes once bags are full
Lets face it, you can get the biggest bags you can get and clear out all of your inventory space, you'll still have a full inventory after only an hour of farming. There are 3 ways of going about this.
- Obtain the toy "Katy's Stampwhistle" (This will allow you to summon a portable mailbox once every 3 hours).
- Be an engineer that can summon a portable mailbox.
- North west of Blackrock Stronghold there is a little tower in Searing Gorge called Iron Summit, this is the closest mailbox I have been able to find, use this to mail your boxes if you don't have the stampwhistle, aren't an engineer, or the other 2 are on cooldown.
The farm is very easy, pretty mindless, and provides results. How much you make is completely up to you due to being able to name your own price. Hopefully this helps some people out that are struggling to make gold, have some free time, or are in a crunch to get that token to renew their sub. Typically 5-6 hours of farming will get me enough boxes to renew my subscription for the month.
Here's me farming for about 15 minutes to complete the last bit of a customer's order. :)
