Cash Stealthing Cow

Well, the information about the Dailies is not new information, it is just probably the best option to make some quick gold that everyone can easily do. (Everyone meaning.... People who CAN'T Stealth)....

If, however, you are a druid or a rogue, there are some special bonus options available for making some quick gold----> Stealth Runs! (with an enchanter... er... DIS-enchanter I mean)...

Here are the options:

Party = 1 Druid (tank), 1 Druid (healer), 2 Rogues/Druids (dps)
Instance = Normal Sethekk Halls

With this group of four, all members can stealth to just before the first boss. There is a patrolling bird that pats into the boss room. The bird, plus the two mobs on either side of the doorway may pull if you run straight in and start the boss fight right away, so we usually clear those mobs, plus the nearby mob in the corner of that hallway leading up to the first boss room.
This first boss is relatively easy. It will spawn at least two waves of elemental adds that will need to be dps'd down, and then the third wave can often be ignored in favor of just killing off the boss. The loot is one blue that is then disenchanted into 1 Large Prismatic Shard. Next... on to the last boss! Yup.. just skip passed all of the other junk in between... just stealth right past it all... Rogues can simply distract birds if needed, or sap mobs that might be tight squeezes if one of the members doesn't have all of their talent points spent in improved stealth... The final boss is quickly destroyed with 4 good players, and drops 2 blues that become 2 Large Prismatic Shards. As a bonus, there might also be spirit shards if your faction controls the towers at the time of your run. Each stealth run results in 3 Large prismatic shards, taking about 10-15 mintues each. You can reset the instance and run it 4 times resulting in a total of 12 Large Prismatic Shards. Each person gets 3. They sell for about 20 gold each on our Auction house, so that is another 60 gold earned in less than an hour (if you don't screw up). ....and not to mention, it is rather fun! Especially compared to doing the dailies OVER and OVER and OVER again...

"What if I can't get that many stealthers?" you ask?
Well, it can actually be done with just a Feral Druid, and a Rogue!!

In this case, the first boss will be skipped. The pair will get up to the first boss, then the rogue will enter initially and agro the boss (who can see stealth). The rogue will simply walk out the exit on the other side and then vanish around the corner of the doorway while the druid will stealth through the room as the boss is kept busy. Just be sure the druid is safely through to the other side and doesn't enter combat before the rogue vanishes.... then ---> On to the final boss. It can be done with just these two! (if both are well geared and know what they are doing)... The druid will need to tank the boss while the rogue may spend most of his time sheeped. The druid can then heal with tranquility during one of his explosions, and although it can be very close for comfort, it can still be done sucessfully most of the time. Of course, this can be done more easily with three stealthers, or it can even be done with two druids, but to pass the first boss (who cannot be killed with only two players), one druid would have to sacrifice themself, and be combat rez'ed on the other side. So the number of runs two druids can do together is limited by the combat ressurection cooldown for both of them. (2 every half hour).
The results are: (1 rogue + 1 druid) (4 runs in about 30 minutes with no mistakes) 8 shards total, 4 large prismatic shards each = about 80 gold in 30 minutes! Of course.. it doesn't always go perfectly, so it often takes more like an hour to get your 8 shards.

"What if NO ONE will come with me??" You ask??

Well, if you are a druid or a rogue with enchanting... There is yet another way to make lots of gold from stealth runs. Go and solo Lower Black Rock Spire! Every single boss in this instance can be solo'd except for the last boss. If there are two of you, then you can even do the last boss.

The fruit of these runs comes out to be about 7 Large Brilliant Shards per run, and each run takes about 12-17 mintues. Large Brilliant shards run at about 5 gold each in our Auction House, for a total of 35 gold per run. If you run it 3 times, that's about 80 gold in less than an hour. With two stealthers, the runs are faster, but shards need to be split between two.. but company always makes everything much more fun!!

**Note** Large Prismatic Shards sell FAR more rapidly and are of much higher value than the Large Brilliant Shards, so the LBRS runs may not result in QUICK gold.. but they do sell eventually...

So ... what is the most profitable secondary skill?? Perhaps... Enchanting?? hehe. I have made all of my gold from this skill, and have not made any gold from my Alchemy at all. Both skills are very beneficial to me though. One just makes a LOT more money for me.

It really depends on the economy of your realm. For example, on Stormrage (Horde-Side at least) Large Brilliant Shards go for upwards of 20 gold, and they sell faster then LPSes.

Now only if I could stealth through LBRS as a warlock. :(

This is probably a stupid question. I am a 61 Tauren Druid. I turned in all of my plant parts to get Honored before even starting Cenarian quests. Do you get cenarian rep from killing these bosses in Seth halls? I'm trying to get exhaulted so I can get the Earthwarden. I know its off subject but if at 70 and I'm doing this dailey I could kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
