It took me way to long, but I did it, I hit the 999,999g99s99c mark (and then some, the mailbox won’t top off your gold, so I had to syphon some into the guild bank). I was pretty excited when I realized the game wouldn’t let me loot any more gold from the mailbox, and excitement that extended about 5 minutes after I took this screenshot. To be honest I’ve been in a bit of a slump in terms of World of Warcraft, and one of the prevailing feeling I had when I hit the gold cap was “about fucking time” more than anything else.
How did I do it? Manufacturing mainly. I don’t dabble in anything like flipping or market influence or anything snazzy like that (I don’t sell transmogrification gear either). Basically I made my fortune taking mats and turning them into finished goods at set margins, not every exciting is it?
I am glad I finally reached this point though, I feel like it’s the last bench mark in the gold making process, and my last quantifiable goal. I also feel like it finally legitimizes me as a goblin, that I’m finally one of the “pros” so to speak.
What’s next for me? Well now I’m broke and got to make a lot more gold again before I feel comfortable. After that though, I’m going to try and come up with some creative ways to give some of it away. Thoughts anyone?
