My druid Changeabull on VeCo now has 25g at level 11. Mostly this is due to flipping vendor recipes on the AH for stupid mark-ups. When I last played him, Ideale and Ahami took him on a bit of a tour around the world. I grabbed flightpoints at a bunch of places on the way, but also stopped off at the vendors.
Simple stuff like the two cooking recipes for the low level fish cost almost nothing to buy but can be sold for 1 or more gold. Grab a couple, put one or two up on the AH at a time and watch the money roll in.
