Gold farm with Inscription

Here are some juicy ways to farm gold with Inscription.

Contracts

  • Contracts were sold very good in BFA.
  • If you can find a way to get reputation fast to be able to craft the contract, you can make tons and tons of gold.

Darkmoon Deck /Darkmoon trinket

  • Inscription is the only profession that can craft that many trinkets
  • There are trinkets for tank, ranged dps, melee dps and healing.
  • Crafted legendary gear can be created for all slots except for trinkets, which means there is a huge slot piece that players need to fit. Perfect for the Darkmoon trinket.
  • Players need a good trinket early in an expansion, the Darkmoon trinkets are very good.
  • You only get crappy trinkets during leveling up and trinkets from dungeons by luck. Therefore, a Darkmoon trinket is something many payers will go for.

THE BEST WAY

Missives (Runes)

  • Everyone will need Missives.
  • When players craft a gear from Blacksmithing, leatherworking or Tailoring they need Missives to add secondary stats.
  • When EVERYONE crafts a legendary gear, they need Missives to add for the secondary stat they need for their legendary gear.
