I recently decided the whole "make gold" thing is awesome...but I can't seem to wrap my head around what makes a good deal and what doesn't. After trying my hand at a few auctions I decided to do the zygor guides for leveling and rep and everything that's included (pretty cool so far...but if there's a free option I'd like to have that). Well they have a goldmaking guide. It updates data like TSM and tells you what is supposed to be the best deals to farm or whatever...well the best deal it was telling me was 8800 volatile fires. It was supposed to be an amazing deal but come on....8800 volatile fires?
No he's just not paying attention. The wanted quests are built into both the leveling guides and the "Zandalar Forever" achievement guide. They aren't in the rep guide because they are not repeatable and by the time you hit max level they should be done. You'll also notice the rep guide doesn't contain every single possible completable quest that rewards rep. It is designed to focus on repeatable objectives, world quests, large quest lines, and missions.
Level your hero. You need to start leveling him from the moment you have 2-3 units. This isn’t necessary. If you have KotG, DH, BM, FS, or AM you don’t even have to wait for units. However, with the help of units, your hero can very easily overcome creeps. Among players there is a certain understanding – creeping. Creeping is the destruction of neutral units in order to gain experience. If you kill a creep you earn gold. A gold number and a plus sign will appear on the screen. Sometimes, you need to kill them in order to earn more gold for building purposes.
