Recipe Flips

Welcome my fellow Gaming Heroes!

This guide will get you started with flipping recipes from vendors onto the auction house. You can be any level to make gold using this method, however its advisable to have 500 gold starter capital to get going.

Recipe Flipping for Gold

The basics outline of this gold farm is as follows:

  1. Fly or Run to locations to get your recipes.
  2. Buy Recipes.
  3. Go to Auction House and sell recipes.

This sounds extremely simple when broken down but when put into practice its a little work doing cancel scans and getting around to buying all your recipes.

For me on my realm the total value of these recipes when sold on the auction house gains me around 70,000 gold. This when repeated gains me an average of 180k gold per month. I could maximise this but this is done passively for me.
