Hearthglen Gold Farming
This trick involves using an
escort quest in Hearthglen to our advantage, so yes,
it is an exploit. But do
recognize that this is not as bad as scamming or botting since you
can argue your doing as "creative use of game mechanics", so if
you're still interested, read on.
1) The setup:
this part is kind of long, it took a friend and I about 4 hours to
get to the place where we need to be.
There is an NPC called Tirion Fordring (
and he'll give you a couple quest to start his quest-chain involving
a story about him and his son. The quest-chain will ask you to kill
100mobs, a couple relay runs, and it'll require you to do a whole
Live Stratholme clear. You'll need to do everything Tirion ask you
to do until he ask to meet Myranda the Hag.
2) The Disguise:
If you done everything Tirion asked you to do, you should get this
message from Myranda:
Myranda will turn you into a Scarlet Crusade soldier. Using this
disguise you can run freely in Hearthglen and Scarlet Crusade
members will not attack you.
Now, enter the Keep/Barrack, go to the very top floor till you see
Highlord Taelan Fordring, he should be friendly to you.
Now he'll ask you to escort him out of Hearthglen, so you accept it
and follow him:
3) The escort... sort of...
You'll soon discover that Taelan can pretty much flatten any Scarlet
Crusade member that goes in his way, so
THIS IS THE TRICK, you pull as many
mobs as you can to Taelan and he'll kill them for you.
Something like these:
after the Scarlet Crusade members die to Taelan's mighty blade, you
can simply bend over and collect their loot. The elite Scarlet
Crusade guys can drop from 4silver to 30silver a person, plus loot
that can vendor for a lot. Also, the Crimson Elite at the enterence
of Hearthglen can also have a chance to drop Righteous Orbs.
Two Important notes here:
A) you need to at least do 1 dmg to the mobs you plan to collect
loot from, something like this will do:
B) you need to be in a
group with your group member(s) at Hearthglen or else the
game disallows you to loot the corpses killed by Taelan. But on the
plus side, your group only needs 1 member with this escort quest in
order to start Taelan's rampage.
so yeah, you might've notice that the above picture
will not get you loot since
I'm not in a group. I did it on purpose so i can collect images for
4) The End?
Once Taelan makes it out of Hearthglen, eventually, there is no
point for you to continue following him because there are no more
elite mobs for Taelan to fight, so now, you can simply abandon the
escort quest. Please note that if you finish this quest, then it's
over, you cannot do this trick ever again, so you want to make sure
you do not cross the line of no return.
After all that jazz, you can return to Myranda and ask for another
Scarlet Crusade disguise and repeat this whole process again. Nice
so, in conclusion:
More gold farming tricks can be
for a small fee!
Good Luck, see you all in Wrath of the Lich King!
