One thing that World of Warcraft implements that many other games don't is the ability to make a significant amount of money just by murdering monsters. It's that simple. You might be skeptical, but "just-plain-killing"™ is as viable of a money maker as many of these other methods.

There is one aspect of this type of wealth generation that has an undeniable appeal: merchants. When you've stocked up on heads, limbs, shells, bones, or whatever else you hacked off your hapless foes, you don't need to try and sell it in the auction house. Just head over to the nearest merchant, offload all the junk, and get paid - a lot.

This section of the guide will list every zone in World of Warcraft and the best things to kill for merchant profit. No need to worry about market prices, inflation, supply or demand. You'll always be able to make a healthy coin just killing the right things. Not everything in World of Warcraft nets a nice profit though, so use this section to find the diamonds in the rough.

I'll be blunt; this section took me several days to complete. I'm pretty happy with the result, but it just might look like a lot of tables to you. That's mainly because World of Warcraft has a whole lot of different areas. I organized all the zones in alphabetical order.

By about the 10th hour of writing down profitable merchant junk, I started noticing a trend. There are only a select few types of monsters that are really profitable and these are repeated time and time again throughout the zones (just with different names.) Elementals, turtles, high level bears, some spiders, some birds, and some cats seem to be the best things to kill for vendor sellable trash.

Some zones are just too low of a level for there to be anything worthwhile, and some zones are the right level range, but just don't have the right monsters. I've made a note of all the special cases I came across.

Trade skill items are omitted (these tend to be worth more to players.)

I only listed common grey drops - items that have no other use than to be sold to a merchant. Some of the best monsters to kill also drop a number of other objects, but these could be used in professions, so I omitted them from the list.
