We are on day 40 of 365 in my adventures to reach 10 million gold (on two low population servers) and I have to say, it’s going pretty well so far! On one server I was ahead by only 8k (but it makes sense, because I barely played that server this week) – and on my other server, I made 214k towards my goal. For both servers I am well above where I need to be, and that gives me a lot of breathing room. I’m really excited to see how Dragonflight adds up, and I have been working on arranging my gold making habits to be a bit more consistent. It seems to be working. Now I just need to spread that to both servers.
Keep in mind I’m doing this as a casual player, I average maybe an hour, sometimes more and that’s split between all my servers and all the things I like to do (lately I’ve been working on collecting mounts and transmog which actually uses up my gold instead of adding to it in most cases, lol).
I’m doing a lot of in-game activities that are semi related to gold making but not directly. Things like covenant tables, covenant dailies / weeklies, doing the patterns within patterns quest, the oribos pvp quest, and stuff like that. You get a lot of pocket change, and that is helping out a ton when / if sales are lacking. Especially on these low pop servers (I’ve made more this week on my level 20 character on a medium pop realm than I have in a long time on my low pop realms). It can be difficult to make gold on a low pop realm, but I want to show you that it’s not impossible.
Sure, it’s not billions of gold like the big goblins, but I’m perfectly happy with my time invested vs. my gold output. I feel like it’s a pretty good balance, and most importantly, I’m having fun. If I wasn’t having fun then I certainly wouldn’t be doing it.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself, and remember – time is money, friends!
