Patience and extra gold are rather important for the mounts so it might not be best for you right now. As for the operation (Wrath and Pandaria mounts right now), you need a miner (ore is cheaper than bars), transmutation master alchemists (living steel and some time eternals for daily cooldown, titanium and riddle of steel), and potentially multiple engineers (for more Sky Golems, plus at least one gnomish and one goblin if you want to do both rockets). The best way to source Pandaria mats cheaply is to buy up Spirit of Harmony when it's cheap and check often for mats cheaper than the conversion rate (1 Spirit buys 20 ghost iron ore, 5 trillium ore, 20 Kyparite, and more). Same with Eternals (for crafting titansteel)...you have to regularly check and grab them up whenever they're cheap (frozen orbs can be exchanged for eternals in old Dalaran too so watch for some cheap orbs as well). I also sell Golden Lotus on the side since it goes for more than the Spirit cost. (Edit: Also should point out that at the end of the expansion everyone is bored with nothing better to do so the profits on the mounts have dipped to as low as 5k.)
I'd like to add my personal experience as of a week ago in regards to illusions: I bought all of them for 10 silver being the highest bidder. They sell for 2-4k each usually, but it's a very slow market with little interest. They might be a nice addition to your portfolio if you can get the mats with little effort, otherwise it's not enough to warrant investing in it. At least on my server.
Plus, I am a pet collector, and there are plenty of pets to collect in the new dungeon. Completing the dungeon’s challenge mode grants players a Mini Spider Tank battle pet. Continue playing on a weekly basis to earn currency towards items like the Unopened Gnomeregan Supply Box, Mechanical Cockroach, Schematic: Mechantula, Leper Rat Tail, and Rechargeable Alarm-O-Dog Battery.
The world quests aren’t necessarily bad, but they aren’t good either. I wouldn’t mind killing five of a type of monster or fighting one particular boss a few times, but after seven or eight, it starts to wear pretty thin. But going from levels in the mid-20s can take nearly 30,000 AP, so you’ll need more than world quests if you want to get your heart up in a reasonable time.
Good news for WoW fans! According to what raiditem.com know, World of Warcraft's latest expansion Battle for Azeroth has been as one of the best PC games in 2018. That at least tell us that WoW is valuable and WoW deserves our money on WoW gold. At the end of this year, we are lucky to experience ancient potion called "Elixir of Tongues" which allows us to understand the opposing faction in chat.
What? I said I giggled because he both cautioned people away from saturated markets and then pointed them to saturated markets. It had nothing to do with the sell rate of Golems since whether or not they sell quickly wasn't an issue. I was calculating for monthly profit, based on OPs example. In the case of an item that each toon can only make one of in a given month it doesn't matter how fast they sell since whether it sells on day 1 or day 20 it doesn't change how many more you can make on that toon.
If you're a new player and buying gold (for some startup money) isn't an option, there's nothing wrong with gathering (especially if you're getting BfA...it'll be good gold initially if you farm BfA mats and sell high). You can make pretty good money just flipping stuff...and because Legion items are super risky now, it's a good time to get spirits of harmony (just buy what you can and sell it in in bigger stacks at higher costs or turn it into ore/bars or lotus to sell when that is profitable). I'd avoid putting all of your gold there though. Sometimes a bot or just someone returning to the game will dump 10+ stacks of 200 spirits cheap and tanks the markets for a bit. Flipping (if you get good at it) will make you more gold in than long run than farming but if you don't have much gold either is a step forward from here. They key to making gold is having the flexibility to lock up most of your gold in items and wait patiently to sell them at a good price but you gotta start small (or cheat like me...when I came back in December I just spent $100 on tokens and haven't spent money on anything other than the Collector's edition since. It's a lot easier to make gold if you already have some.
Gold is a necessary element of World of Warcraft. Players can create their own self-sustaining economy. and use it to buy very useful items to improve a player’s experience. But when it comes to gold, everyone wants it. This makes many gold making methods in WoW difficult to use. They become saturated. But, today I’ll be providing the best WoW gold making techniques available for the BFA expansion.
I have probably said this exact same thing a dozen times but it's worth saying a dozen more. Old world engineering is awesome right now. I make enough for my monthly token and then some simply buy selling auto hammers, gunshoes, and 1 sky golem. 100% of mats purchased from auction house. It's the easiest, laziest way I have ever made gold and i love it.
Azeroth paid a terrible price to end the apocalyptic march of the Legion's crusadebut even as the world's wounds are tended, it is the shattered trust between the Alliance and Horde that may prove hardest to mend. As this age-old conflict reignites, join your allies and champion your faction's causeAzeroth's future will be forged in the fires of war.
I think that's server dependant. I make a lot of Golems, but the price on my server is high enough that you could buy all the living steel and still make about 20K (almost 200kg on AH). Its just that you proc all the way up the chain. You proc 20% of your trillium, and then 20% of your living steel. SoH and Ghost Iron are such low effort farms, too. 20% of 180 Trillium Bars at 500g is 18k more profit, 20% of 150 Living Steel at 3500g is another 105kg. That's an extra 25k profit per Golem. If they stop selling stockpile them for the next expansion, they always boom with the price of herbs. And a consistent 20% proc rate is the opposite of RNG, its extra free stuff as a benefit to completing an extra quest (not to mention for new alchemists the investment of leveling Vanilla Alchemy). You're looking for some get rich quick scheme, where the real way to build wealth is patience and volume. No market is going to be viable because you want it to be. Only because you make it viable.
