As it stands, I have 20g saved up for lessons so far that cost 540g (I checked prices last night) Quests in Outland give me 2g per reward, and Runecloth is selling for 2g 50s per stack. So, at this rate, it should take me...208 stacks of Runecloth! Well, that is not my only option for making money. So lets add in the fact that I get 2g per quest reward and I do, let's say, 30 quests. Now, let's say doing each quest I manage to get 1 stack of Runecloth. That would give me 135g if that is the rate I was going at. Now, let's add quest rewards in that sell for about 1g a piece. Now, deeming that I use about 5 of the rewards, I'll get 25 that I can sell. So, that gives me 25g right there. So, that is 160g saved up. Now, let's add some instances. Let's say I do one instance run and make 5g...So I have 165g so far. Now at this rate it does seem slow. But, adding in the fact that I get money from killing humanoids, items I can sell, and that 20g already saved up, that should bring me to about 200g...So, at this rate, it should take me two to three weeks to make the full money I need to get Epic Riding Lessons. Now, I am trying to do this all before I hit 60, but doing 30 quests in going to make me ding, and I don't want to hit 60 before I have my riding lessons. Lets also add in the fact that I still don't have the actual horse yet. I've still got a lot of PvPing to do. I've got 4 Alteric Valley Marks of Honor, 1 Warsong Gulch Mark of Honor, and 0 Arathi Baisen Marks of Honor. Well, this means I've got 26 more Alteric Valley Marks of Honor, 29 Warsong Gulch Marks of Honor, and 30 Arathi Baisen Marks of Honor to go before I can achieve the goal of actually getting my mount. That is a lot of Battlegrounds if, due to the fact that Alliance loses almost all the time, I only get 1 mark per BG. But, one good thing is that now that I am 59, I am the highest level that can go into my level range of BG's, which should help get closer to a win. Last time I did a BG I was level 57, and that is not much against a 59.
So, that's it. I'm done with my ranting, and my plan is not made yet about how to get the money, but I do have a simple outline...
Quest and instance until 3 bars from 60, then get all remaining Marks Of Honor from BGs. Afterwords, kill things with Mageweave drops and sell Mageweave and any other items I recieve. Finally, kill skelatons in Plaguelands that drop Runecloth and sell all stacks until I get all riding lesson money I need.
That is my plan outline, nothing to complex, just a simple little something to follow. If anyone has any tips on how to make quick money (Besides buying gold, I would never do that) then please leave a comment, I'd really appriciate it. Thanks :)
