We did it! We’ve crossed over into the 6 million gold mark. It has been 104 days on my low population server, and this includes both crafting & any weeklies or vendor flips I do. The ‘goal’ for this point in time is just shy of 3 million, so hovering over 6 is a nice feeling. Day to day sales have been pretty good, I even sold a strange goop on this server (not common for me, some servers just don’t do well).
My second low population server is starting to slow down quite a bit. This server is full of level 60 characters but none of them have done anything in Shadowlands. They have only base recipes, no crafter’s marks (besides the default ones) and I haven’t dedicated very much time to them at all. Most of my gold actually came from transferring a bunch of BoE from a high population server. I do some pet sales here, but nothing in any sort of volume.
That being said, we are creeping up to the 7 million gold mark on that server, which is a nice feeling considering how neglected it is. Some days I don’t even relist my auctions (especially on busy days) so the fact that we’re well above where we should be for this time of year bodes well.
I have gold scattered around a few other servers but it’s used for token purchases or flips if I find a nice deal. I’m slowly leveling those characters up past 10 just to have more max level characters (until Dragonflight comes out at least, then they’ll all need more levels). Gold is easier to make if you’re using max level characters since then you can access more stuff in general.
It’s not the fastest gold making, but it’s not intended to be. I spend maybe an hour a day on steady gold making habits, and the rest of my time (if I have any left over) is doing ‘fun’ things, like pet battles, dungeons, LFR. Some days I have more time available, others I have less. It just depends. Making gold is never static, and you have to be able to move and adjust as it changes. In any case, things are going well and I can’t wait to see how gold making picks up in the next expansion.
As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!
