Halfhill crop farming in Mists of Pandaria has taken the addictive element of Farmville and incorporated it into a way to grow your own crafting materials.

Here are a few useful tips for making the most of your farm on Sunsong Ranch.
Many non-combat companion pets in WoW are sold by vendors, making them easy to collect, and lucrative to resell. Since a lot of players don’t know where you can get these, or don’t want to be bothered traveling to get them, you can list them on the auction house and flip them for a nice profit. Here’s a guide to five of the most profitable pet vendors you can easily do business with, and make lots of gold reselling their pets on the World of Warcraft auction house. All of these vendors are available to both Alliance and Horde.
Eternal Fire is a necessary material in many crafting professions as you make your way through the Northrend levels. Alchemists can use Eternal Fire to transmute Scarlet Ruby (rare WotLK red gem) into Cardinal Ruby (epic WotLK red gem) which is popular with twinks due to its lack of item level restriction. Miners need Eternal Fire (along with Eternal Shadow & Earth, and 3 Titanium Bars) to smelt Titansteel Bars – a major component in Chopper mounts. You may find yourself paying a pretty penny for Eternal Fire on the AH, unless of course you use these 5 tips to get them cheaper!

Maelstrom Crystals are a necessary material for many high end enchants in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. With some enchants requiring as many as four or five Maelstrom Crystals, relying on the auction house for individual crystals, or hoping for unwanted dungeon loot to disenchant can be a pain. While you can still obtain Maelstrom crystals from raid bosses, heroic dungeon bosses, and disenchanting your own epics, here are three simple ways you can farm Maelstrom Crystals without breaking the bank too terribly.

If you don’t feel like paying upwards of 100 gold per stack on the AH for cloth, or are simply looking for a reliable way to make lots of gold in World of Warcraft, you need to check out the number one Embersilk farming spot in WoW Cataclysm!

Here are a few simple tricks to gathering Frostweave quickly for leveling Tailoring, or to sell on the AH for a bundle of gold!
Volatile Earth, Volatile Water, Volatile Fire, Volatile Life, and Volatile Air are used in many crafting professions in WoW Cataclysm, with several stacks often needed to level a profession to maximum level.

For hardcore WoW raiders, level 60, 70, and 80 raids are pretty much obsolete content. You can’t get any gear upgrades, and most of the fights are trivial at level 85 especially if you’re in full epics.
