It’s day 53 of 365, and I’ve done some number crunching. What started out as a goal to reach cap on one server expanded to two servers. I’ve been neglecting both of them and playing on a 3rd (higher population) server lately, but the gold is still trickling in.
On one server in 53 days I have earned 930,936 gold. This is my main server, where most of my characters are, but it is also the lowest population at 13k.
On my second server in 53 days I have earned 2,793,804 gold profit. This is also a low population server, but it hovers slightly higher than my main one. I don’t actively play on this server any more, but I did buy a whole bunch of items from a high population server and moved them – selling them for a profit. It was lovely. That’s where most of the sales come from.
I’m still well ahead of where I need to be, and I’m just sort of coasting until Dragonflight comes along and then I’ll explore new gold making opportunities there. Making gold is always easier at the start of an expansion vs. the tail end of one where no one is shopping and everyone is bored.
I didn’t get into legendaries at all in Shadowlands, and in fact took a four month break at the start of this year, so I haven’t done much crafting. I’d like to change that in Dragonflight, but it will of course depend on how many other people decide they’re going to do the same thing. On the plus side, I’m still having a lot of fun and experimenting with new methods all of the time. There’s lots of other goblins out there with unique gold making methods, and I like to give everything a try at least once to see if it’s something I want to continue (note to self, vendor flipping is slow and I’d rather do almost anything else).
It’ll be fun to see where this goes, and see if I can casually meet my goal. As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
