20 Days of Gold Making: Day 4 – Do you use a banker alt/guild? When did you start doing that & why?


Yes, I do have a bank alt and dedicated guild bank, in fact they’ve been featured somewhat frequently on my blog. For those who aren’t familiar, here’s my bank alt, Leigera, standing in front of an open guild vault.

Fith tab in my guild bank during the server transfer

After some delays, my  move to my new server finally went down last Wednesday. I ended up taking 3 characters and one guild bank, all filled to the brim.

Where Real World Economics Meet World of Warcraft (and then abruptly crash and burn)

Something I’ve noticed from my time crawling the gold blog-o-sphere is that so many ideas and discussions spawn from correlations people make between the ingame World of Warcraft economy and the economy of the real world. And you can’t blame them, so many theories, principles, tactics etc. from real world economics work perfectly, and sometimes …

Update: The original source for my information, the blog post, missed a key piece of information….the character moving a guild needs to be GM for 7 days. The need or desire to switch servers and/or factions can come from many things, your guild fell apart, you’re moving to meet friends, you’re moving to avoid drama …
