I am nearing the end of the 100 runs of Sunwell (woohoo) and this week we bring in a total of 44,000g and some change. Not the most, not the least, it’s pretty average. About average for items looted, noteworthy items, and raw gold. In fact there was nothing that stood out about this run at all.
That brings our total gold ‘earned’ to 507,000g roughly. It also puts us at 8 hours of work (roughly, it actually takes a bit over half of that, but since you’re locked from dungeons for an hour I round up) putting us at a gph earned of 63,000. Pretty respectable number.
Of course numbers don’t show the true picture, what matters is NOT how much we loot – but how much we sell. I’m playing on a low population server, and sales have been slow and few between but they’ve still be ‘worth’ the time. Last week sales brought me to roughly 18,715 gph earned – and doing the math this week, we’re still hovering around the same number! If I include sales from last week, and the raw gold from 8 sessions, the realistic number for this farm is much closer to: 18,642 gold per hour. Remember I also sell anything with a value of less than 100g (minus craft items and gems) to vendor, so there’s some potential gold I’m throwing away there just because I don’t want to deal with that sort of inventory.
It also bodes well that I do have 63 posted auctions with a value of 562,000g up on the AH. It’s just more of a long play, because that’s how things work on a low population server. You have to have patience. Farming one dungeon once a week for a little pocket change isn’t going to cut it, but you use these methods and combine them with other methods to earn your gold, and before you know it, you have a lot more than you thought you would.
As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!
