Farming for Profit
I found this video on YouTube of one of my favorite farming spots. The drop rate for Crystallized Fire seems decent and they're easy kills, once you get past the annoying charge/stun mechanic. While waiting for respawns head outside the cave. Located nearby are plentiful ore and herb nodes, as well as beasts that can be farmed for meat and skins if you have Skinning on your farmer.
The great thing about farming is that it is always 100% profit, all you need to do is invest your time. With every other strategy, whether it's AH flipping or crafting Flasks for the raiders, you're dealing with a profit MARGIN only. The gold per hour farming may not compare to that of an established crafter with several alts, but if you're looking to get started, supplement income, or ride out a tough market period then a great framing spot can't be beat.
