at gold limit

I certainly am!

Here’s my guy – looks happy eh? Trust me he does, that’s how nelfs look when they’re happy.

It's taken 11 weeks work to get from 38K to here. That’s an average weekly income of about 16,000G per week. And the knowledge that in the future nothing that requires gold in this game will be out of my reach. It’s a good feeling.

Here’s the breakdown by week:

Starting capital – 38,000
W1 – 48,324 (10,324)
W2 – 64,205 (15,881)
W3 – 78,435 (14,231)
W4 – 92994 (14,559)
W5 – 107,769 (14,775)
W6 – 118,745 (10,976)
W7 – 143,015 (24,270)
W8 – 153,582 (10,567)
W9 – 170,421 (16,839)
W10 – 195,322 (24,901)
W11 - 218,256 (22,934)

Markets I am involved in are Tailoring, Inscription, Alchemy, Jewelcrafting and Enchanting.

I got into chant scrolls late but the numbers show their relative power (the 81K is on my chant scroll alt) – there’s work involved but if I wanted to have a big week then I knew I’d need to have a fully stacked scroll list up on the AH. DKs, druids and warriors were well represented in terms of glyph purchasing patterns - multiple trees being used for deeps or tanking really put these classes into the "respectable earner" category.

Overall I’m pleased as punch to have pulled it off. I remember when I engaged my first farmer– it was a stretch to make that deal, something very different to what I was used to in wow. Farmer number 1 sent me about 24 stacks in the mail per week at 12.5G/stack. I’m still working with him, it’s just that now I have at least 2 or 3 other farmers all of a much larger scale supplying on average 200-350 stacks per week.

What’s next? Well, I’ve said a bit on that already but I should add that I there’ll be some skiting to a few close friends and then I’ll move on to the next stage of both wow play and wow gold for me. I would be lying to you if I didn’t admit that I’ll be doing this with a very self-satisfied glow. I'll also be spending some of the gold I've been earning - as we speak I'm back down to 198K having grabbed one of these from the AH and got going on the primordial saronite I'll need for crafted gear.

I hope you guys have enjoyed coming on this part of the journey with me – gold updates will no longer be weekly but I’ll still be cataloguing my experiences as I refine processes and look for new ways to make da goldz!

All the best,
