Got a lot of great advice, btw I don't know why it links my sc2 profile, but here is my d3 profile: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/ThepHaRSiDE-1645/
I feel what has been making me not rich after reading the responses is the speed of my runs. I kinda take a bit longer than the after fast runner by backtracking, and opening chest, etc. The reason I do this is because maybe, just maybe that super expensive awesome legendary set piece will come flying out of that chest.... has yet to happen though lol.
I'm posing this question, because I have been playing the same since release, and am still not rich. I have seen streams with people with hundreds of millions of worth in gear. So I want to hear some stories on how you got rich. When I say rich, I'm talking you have about 500 million gold in gear or more, and then millions or even hundreds of millions left over to spend.
Did you get lucky with an item find and sold for hundreds of millions?
Did you buy low and resell high in the auction house?
Did you just purchase gold?
What was your strategy to actually achieving hundreds of millions or even possible a billion gold in this game?
Me personally I have about 50-60 million in gear right now, and have virtually nothing left over to spend ( about 5 million left). I just don't know how people managed to get sooo much gold to be able to do the game ending builds.
