Tycoon Gold Addon Review
Editor’s rating: (4.5 of 5)
Addon last updated: Updated for Legion (latest expansion)
The Tycoon Gold Addon is a best-selling gold-making addon intended to make you significantly more gold in WoW
It is created by Dynasty Addons, the same company that makes several other premium WoW addons. They’ve been around since 2008, so they’re veterans in the biz.
How Tycoon works
Any WoW gold guide can tell you what to do to make gold, i.e. what to craft, gather, farm, etc.
The difference with Tycoon is that it will tell you exactly which items and gold-making strategies will make the most gold per hour based on YOUR auction house’s economy (every auction house is different).
You do this by “scanning” the auction house with the click of a button, and Tycoon will then look for items with a high price point and low competition so you know precisely what items to get, to make the most gold.
Tycoon will then show you maps, gathering routes, farming spots, instance runs, professions, and more, that will allow you to get those very items as fast as possible.
Tycoon works for
- Gathering professions (e.g. mining, herbalism)
- Crafting professions (e.g. blacksmithing, alchemy)
- Farming/grinding (killing mobs for their loot)
- Auction house trading (buying low and selling high)
- Instance runs (doing dungeons for gold and valuable items)
As you can see, Tycoon has something for everyone. The above covers pretty much all the popular gold-making strategies.
My experience with Tycoon
Personally, I especially like the crafting module, which shows you what materials you can buy straight off the auction house and combine into something of far higher value. This allows me to simply buy out the items I need, craft new items, put them back up for sale and profit!
The auction house module is also very powerful. It tells you which items are currently underpriced compared to their normal value, so you can buy them and resell them for a huge profit at the normal price (yes, other players will buy them).
So those are just 2 of the really powerful features built into Tycoon that have made me a lot of extra gold. Tycoon is also easy to understand and use, even if you’ve never used an addon before or you’re a WoW newbie. Heck, you can even use Tycoon if you’re level 1.
“Does Tycoon work?” and other questions
Yes, Tycoon works.
I’ve tested it a lot, and I must say I am impressed. It claims to increase the gold per hour that the average player makes by +300%. Does it deliver on that promise?
Yes, in my experience that is entirely realistic, because you will focus on the stuff that brings in the most gold on YOUR server. And with the helpful additional modules that show you exactly WHERE to go to get those items as fast as possible (e.g. in-game maps), then you can really start to see the potential for MASSIVE profits with Tycoon.
Is Tycoon a scam or legit?
I can say with confidence that it’s legit; you get everything you pay for and access to the addon for life.
Will Tycoon get you banned?
No, I’ve looked into this question and I’ve yet to find a single player that got banned from using Tycoon, so it’s safe to say that you have nothing to worry about. Some people think that Tycoon automatically plays their character for them, but this is not true. You still do everything yourself, Tycoon just helps you know what to do. Since Tycoon doesn’t auto-play your character, it’s not illegal.
Is Tycoon worth it?
Whether you think it’s worth spending the money on Tycoon is, of course, up to you. I personally think it’s worth it, but if you can’t afford it, don’t buy it.
|Fast and friendly support via email. I emailed them on a Sunday about a concern I had, and got a reply in just 7 hours.|

This will save you A TON of money if you’re going to play WoW for a long time. Other companies charge money for upgrades for new expansions. Tycoon is updated for Legion.|

|Quick updates. Dynasty Addons are very quick to update the addons in advance of patches and expansion packs.|
Tycoon is the next level in WoW gold guides.
Its in-game features, and focus on helping you make the most gold based on YOUR auction house’s economy makes it a game-changer. On top of that, the in-game addon shows you what to do right inside the game.
Tycoon will significantly boost the amount of gold you make per hour thanks to its tailor-made recommendations for your auction house’s economy, as well as giving you the maps and tools to put the gold making strategies “on steroids”.
Together with a great company behind them, fast and free updates for life, the auto-installer that installs the addon for you, and many other benefits, I must conclude that Tycoon is the #1 WoW gold “guide” right now, beating everything else by a large margin.
