How would you make gold if you had limited play time?

Come one come all, Markco the gold guru with the most commonly misspelled name of all warcraft legends has gathered together quite a collection of wow gold articles from across the Azerothean blogosphere! We have everyone from gold aficionados to common players all mixed together into a smorgasbord of information. Pass the popcorn and enjoy the vast range of topics and cataclysm gold lovin' goodness.

How would you make gold if you had limited play time?

Warcraft Corner
" This is a category I personally fall into and I suspect so do many Gold Bloggers. We dont sit all day on the PC or on Remote AH camping the Auction House. Some of us have to work for a living :( If your playtime is limited through real life and when you do play you raid, level or do something else that is fun for you then maybe you need a helping hand making gold with the least amount of input possible. "

Trading With Zoxy
" I would look at passive income , what can you do that really easy and with a limited investment but will give you great return. Vendor Recipes : So you log in and try and do your daily dungeon  but what can you do while waiting those 20 or 30 minutes. First thing to do go install this addon : Recipe Profit for Gathermate"

Ele-Mental Gold
" This all depends on what you call 'limited' play time. For me limited play time is like an hour a day and for others that could be more or less depending how busy they are. Then there are a ton of other factors like how many bankers you have, what profession you have at what level or how much gold you have in your pocket. Now i'm not going to tell you what you should buy and what not, I'm going to take you on a different road. The road of planning and optimization. "

Not So Secret Society
" Hi! This post is my entry for this month  WoW Gold Blog Carnival. This month we have a great topic: "How would you make gold if you had limited play time?", so let's start! Let's take a look at some professions. Inscription: First of all, having limited play time, IMHO, excludes Inscription almost completely. You won't be able to make glyph and re-post them efficiently when you get undercut if you can't log in several times a day or for long periods of time. "

Colds Gold Factory 
" Many players are not able to sit in front of their computer all day and camp the auction house, constantly scan for steals and deals, or craft using their professions.  Some markets are very dependent on having a large amount of playtime to dedicate.  There are auction house markets that require constant babysitting and listing and re-listing.  If you have a limited amount of playtime, then you must strike up a balance between what time you use to actually play the game and what time you use to craft, flip, and make gold.  This balance can be hard to obtain, but is much easier when focusing on certain markets. "

Making Money
" The beauty of a game like World of Warcraft is that there are more ways to make money than there are ways to have your eggs in the morning. I have changed the ways I have made money more times than I care to imagine but it largely boils down to what I am doing at the time with my toons and what my goals and objectives are. "

High Latency Life
" Any Goblin Knows this, that time is money friend, and it’s time for JMTC’s Blogging Carnival once again. The Topic is “How would you make gold if you have limited play time?”  Well I do, I probably put in about 5-10 minutes a day on average managing my gold making empire, My empire is quite small compared to most people, but maybe I can give you a new tip or two. Lets take a look how I do it. "

Capped By Cata
" What a very appropriate question. Especially for me. As you may have noticed, I haven't had as much time to post here. This defiantly correlates to the game as well. My play time has been shortened so my daily routine has had to be shortened as well. Here are three things you can do to insure that no matter how little your play time is, you can continue to bring in a continuous stream of gold.

Wow Mogul
" I started playing WoW back just after BC came out – at that time I had a girlfriend. That girlfriend is now my wife and I’ve got two kiddies into the bargain, one at 7 months the other just gone 2 and a half years. I usually get some playtime once everyone has gone to bed for the evening – sometimes it’s a couple of hours, sometimes less. "

Bangkok Bill
" First of all welcome to my new home! You might have visited my blog before at a different site. I just decided to switch from wordpress to blogger and this is my new home. I will be updating only here in the future so please subscribe if you would like to get my daily takes on making gold. "

Confessions of a Half Ass Gold Maker
" These are three of the simplest tips I can give for someone with limited time. For Alchemists: Simply set Hearthstone to your preferred banking location. Then take a portal to your desired zone of transmutation for living elements."

ALTO's Gold"ish" Advice
" I feel that alot of the raiders are (for the most part) left in the dust when it comes to AH tips. So you don't have a "capped" profession. You barely have enough time to log in, hit the AH for your pots/buff food before you are late. Again. "

Kammler's Korner
" JMTC posts its list of Carnival entries in order of receipt. Which means you are reading this because you either started at the bottom and went up (unlikely) or you are reading every post (possible). Or you still seek some new nugget of information to satiate your ravenous hunger for earning gold (more likely). "

The Tipped Copper
" When I'm not raiding in WoW i am generally trying to make gold. Each day i can normally dedicate 3 hours give or take to making gold and most days i make around 10k. To start the easy gold making process you first need to access what you have in your arsenal. "

The Gold Queen
" This is actually a very personal question, because it's about how we prioritise our time, which actions are the most important to us, and which goals do we want to achieve.  Do we really just want the most possible gold?  Is the gold making work for us, or play?  Do we enjoy gold making?  It's all very well putting into place efficient routines to maximise the amount we get from the time we put in, but is it really worth all this WORK if we don't actually enjoy it? So what do we enjoy? "

Bank of Wukam
" I already "make gold with limited time" as it is, but if I had to cease the majority of my operations and limit my AH endeavors to thirty minutes or less a day, this is what I would do. Jewelcrafting! No, not that horrendously time consuming goldmine that is the Obsidium Shuffle, just good old fashion cutting and reselling gems. This is the origin of my gold making back at the end of Wrath, and for someone with limited time, this is one of the easiest ways to make a decent amount of gold. I went from less than 2k to over 10k liquid (and probably in the realm of 20-30k net worth) simply by doing my JC daily, and buying and reselling cut gems on the AH. "
