Probably around 120K across all my major characters. I haven't really had any motivation to earn more for quite some time.

I stay steady at around 20k. There isn't much I can't buy, I'm never hindered in any way, it's easy to accumulate if you try. But I'm exceptionally lazy and unmotivated so I just never bothered to go much past 20k.

Playing the game, AHing BoEs, and not falling for every gold sink that comes along.

I sent all my gold to this char before i xfered to the PTR and I have 3k. If you have full epic gems, full enchants and 310% flying, who gives a !@#$ if you have hundreds of thousands? And it's obvious that 9/10ths of the people out there didn't actually earn their 100k gold.

before I quit back in the beginning of cata.... I think I had something like 150k. I gave it all away to my friends and now I have maybe like 15k all together.

I never really needed gold. Only thing I spent money on was... maybe enchanting mats if I didn't have any on my enchanter?

How did they not earn it? If you have the time and know how to play the AH its VERY doable. Some people are also just savers by nature. I'm 34....make about 60k a year...yet have 5 times that in savings just because its something that is important to me instead of wasting money on crap.

To each their own.

Tons of people buy gold nowadays. Blizzard has definitely stopped cracking down on it as hard lately.

Only if you really only play one character. Alts cost a ton of money if you gear up all of their specs in pve and pvp.


I have 8 85s, and I have 400k. They're all 380 or better. Two are over 400, 2 are over 390, and 4 are 380+.

If you have a lot of alts you have a lot of professions and that makes you self sufficient, you find a lot of stuff to sell for high prices, and leveling is actually a good chunk of gold.

Edit: And once again I don't try to make gold. The most effort I put into making gold is by running multiple toons through dungeons and making the ~100g you get for the gold off of completing the dungeon, and the vendoring after it. I do a couple sales periodically too.

i've got around 100k. i made a ton of money when epic gems were released. I also did quite well with jewelcrafting until the market on my server completely crashed.

i have five 85's, two of which i play with any regularity. those two have 310% flying, the others all have 280%. I also have a traveler's tundra mammoth. other than that i dont just buy stuff because i have the funds.

This has nothing to do with damage dealing.


Think about it: the most efficient way to get gold is to be level capped. To get level capped, you have to kill stuff. To kill stuff, you have to deal damage.

Boom.

Im at about 600k at the moment, with the most ive owned being at around 750k or so. I bought a couple of things that lowered that down. I earned most of this gold in the past 6 months by just simply playing the auction house, crafting materials or mounts, and reselling them. Quite easy actually. I expect to be gold cap 2 weeks after launch.
