The challenge is incredibly simple. With one level 120 character, that starts with no professions and just 9000 gold I will try to get enough gold for a token in less than 30 days. Before we go into the rules I will go through the purpose of the challenge. I want to put myself back in the shoes of a newer player working towards their first token. This will both help me figure out what works well in that situation as well as get a better understanding of the specific issues you would face.
- 1 character, which is a completely fresh level 120
- No brutosaur
- 1 realm obviously
- I start with 10 711 gold (This is what I got leveling from 110-120 while vendoring every single drop.)
- I start with level 1 professions
- I start with the materials I got from leveling 110-120
I already outlined my plans for professions in this post. Things have changed a bit since then, and I will be doing the challenge at a pretty bad timing as we are waiting for 8.2 As I outlined in my post on 8.2 I believe a lot of materials will be going down in price.
Based on a new look at the professions and my thoughts I plan to start out with material flipping, limited to materials I expect to keep their value and most likely a combination of tailoring and enchantment to craft sinister combatant gear, bags and the enchanting shuffle. The same professions still seem like the best choices.
