WoW Classic Rogue Guide - 60 gold / Hour Pick Pocket Farm. Best Route. Fastest Pickpocket Method.

  • Published: 08 October 2019
  • 60 gold an hour guide for World of Warcraft Classic. Pick pocket BRD for easy and fast gold. Can be done as soon as you hit 60. I've analyzed every possible route to take and this is by far the easiest and best way to pick pocket BRD to be as efficient as possible to make the most gold per hour. This video goes over the route, talent spec, gear, addons, macros, and the gold / hour ratio of loot you'll be getting, and what to auction house, and what to vendor.

      I am getting a ton of resist as of today, and major health pots drop rate seem to have gone down, farmed 4 hours today, averaged 26 gold per hour without AH, but got a whole 4 major healing pots...
      god dammit, where do we farm gold as rogues now :P

          Did something change in the short period since this guide was made? I no longer seem to get any star rubies from mobs in BRD. Granted I only did this particular route (which is so very relaxing, so thanks for it) for a couple of hours, but didn't see a single Star Ruby, and they seem to make up a fair chunk of what makes the route profitable. Before the Dire Maul release I used to get a few at least.

            @SwoleBenji nm had one drop. Apparently I was just insanely unfortunate with the drop rate. So at least it is still possible! Thanks for the great and clear guide for this!

            oke first i will say thanks for the vid and nicely done, but second i tried it a lot and the best i get is 37g gold. It hardly depends on resist of the mobs . If i die 2 times in 1 h i earned 37g ( 28g from pick pocking 9g from vendoring. So i dont think you can get 60g per h my friend :)

            • SwoleBenji
              SwoleBenji   3 days back

              It's 60g / hr of "ACTIVE" play. As in, pushing buttons and doing actions. Waiting on cooldowns is not "actively" playing. It's 60g / hr while you watch anime waiting on cooldowns.

                          4chan is the best community website to spend time on. Leagues better than reddit or some vBulletin site where everyone sucks the toes of moderators / people with thousands of posts. I have yet to find a better website.

                            I've done this for about 130 hours now, got exalted with Ravenholdt using the Junkboxes (probably opened over 5,000 of them). I think actual gold per hour is about 35, perhaps the active time is the difference maker here. It also seems that the rare epic items simply aren't available in the Heavy Junkboxes this time round, I've been speaking to other rogues who have also opened several thousand of them and no one yet seems to have looted one.

                              ... A clock is a clock is a clock, man. Using a stopwatch doesn't somehow alter time.

                              @Rave "Real time" vs "active time". I'm sure if the time inbetween each pickpocket didn't exist then his numbers would be accurate, but if you're looking at the clock instead of an in-game stopwatch, it isn't.

                              I find killing Pyromancer Loregrain and Plugger Spazzring each run will up your g/h to about 40-50 however if you learn how to beat each encounter perfectly.

                            I get resisted PP once per minute on average, with a sub spec. Spending most of my time waiting on vanish. If this is the best way for a rogue to farm I dont see the point in classic, it's fucking horrendous. 60g/hour more like 15-20.

                                          If this type of farming was possible in vanilla they should not be nerfing it. No changes means no changes.

                                          Youtubers are talking about BoE items from lockboxes that drop as loot for everyone, not the kind only rogues can pickpocket. The kind only we can get are absolute dog shit. The ones that drop as loot for everyone almost always contain at least a green BoE. Like just today I had a guy I opened 10 lockboxes in a row (cheap bastard only tipped me 5s per box). He get better loot from those 10 boxes than I've gotten from the 100+ rogue only boxes I've looted while leveling this character. The only things I ever get from rogue-only boxes are small amounts of silver and a few reagants for poison stuff.

                                          Also you might want to mention this is BRD. Those who have never done the dungeon before would have no idea what this is by sight.

                                            He can't nerf it, it was in vanilla, it's also not a secret....
                                            there'd be a shit storm if he did and it would of been already, it was nerfed on private servers it's not something no one knew about. IF they nerf this they have to nerf hunters/locks able to solo mara

                                                  Not recommended. Mobs can easily see you.

                                                  False, mobs in arena will see you throught stealth if you go PvE combat specc if you stand ontop of em or to close.

                                                    Yo Benji, is there any trick to not get hit out of vanish? If one of the arena spectators resists your PP I add so many mobs that I get hit out of vanish fucking immediately after you press it.
