WorthIT has undergone a few changes over the past few months and as of patch 8.3 i am happy to share all of the hard work me (DalaGG ) and Callan have been working on for WorthIt going forward.
Core Rebuild: We have performed a full rebuild of the original engine of worthit and now has provided the addon the ability to calculate farms without the use of clicking button. They have now been finally removed and with this the core has made the calculations much more accurate in your quest for gold farming.
UI Redesign: The user interface of worthit has been redesigned to a much more familiar feel. When it comes to the layout, the farms are now categorised into ( name of item, Gph, Location, Route ) and this should help users moving forward to see the information in a much more clean way than as before.
Transmog: With addition to adding more farms to the addon we are happy to announce that the Transmog option is now in place for seeing GPH ( looted item value in transmogs case) for all vanilla dungeons displaying ( Notable Item, Gph, Location, Sell Rate), this is to aid the base of transmog farmers to see if a transmog dungeon is worthit before they do it.
Waypoints: We have now added way points into the Flipping module for finding vendor in which you can perform flips even if you have never done a flip before. This I catered for both Horde and Alliance players. (Requires TomTom)
Routes: With addition to a wide variity of farms to choose from within the addon, they are are now accompanied with an option of importing a route which you can follow on your minimap and world map for easier use when farming. ( Requires Routes)
With the configuration module you are able to select your own pricing source for determining your gold per hour be that Dbmarket or even Minbuyout the option is now able to be chosen from this module. Along side this you are now able to customise the bag value button within the addon to take into account destroying value over vendor value as well as picking what item quality you would like the addon to ignore for bag value checks.
We hope you like this update for 8.3 and I would love to hear any feedback you have about the new updates to WorthIT
From Day 21 until currently we have primarily farmed BfA content. The reason for this comes from the fact that BfA herbs and ore tend to have the best combination of buyers, farmers, and flippers to make the sell value and sell rate a more dependable source of gold. That is not to say we have abandoned our old farms, but if an old material and a new material sells, then I tend to replace the new material first.
I am anticipating that most of those reading this have BfA and may be considering farming due to Patch 8.3 and the subsequent new raid, Ny’alotha. That being said, let’s start with the discussion of travel. The person who has flying definitely has an advantage over the player who does not have flying. If you do not have flying, then do not stress. While those who have flying may have an advantage, that does not mean the player who does not have flying cannot make gold at all (though I highly recommend getting flying in BfA).
Next let’s talk about the buffs when farming. Generally, speaking there are three buffs that I use:
Monel-Hardened Stirrups: These allow me to gather herbs and ore while mounted in BfA (keep in mind that this is just for BfA gathering). For herbs, I still need to be on the ground in order to gather them, but for ores, I can freely fly next to and gather them. The Sky Golem and Mechanized Lumber Extractor mounts can do the same thing for gathering herbs, but you will be dismounted when gathering ore. Monel-Hardened Stirrups will not keep druids in flight form.
Course Leather Barding: This allows me to ride my mount without worrying about being dismounted by mobs. So, if I have a mob hitting me while I am gathering an herb, then I do not have to worry about getting dismounted. This is mostly a concern for DPS and healer specs as tanks cannot be dismounted. Also, if you have a few pieces of azerite gear that give you Resounding Protection, that shield will prevent you from be dismounted as long as it is there.
Darkmoon Firewater: This allows me to gather both herbs and ores at much quicker rate for an hour and is worth its weight in gold! You can gather this from fishing in Darkmoon Faire, or buy it from the Auction House (from someone else who did). This is a must. You can substitute it with BfA enchants for mining or herbalism (but not both on the same pair of gloves). Also, Tauren (herbalism) and High Mountain Tauren (mining) have racials that allow for faster gathering, so you would only need an enchant on your gloves and you are permanently set.
