We’re on day 34 of 365 in trying to reach gold cap on at least one server (but more likely two servers) as an ultra casual player. The ‘goal’ was to aim for 25k per day (I’m no where near that lately, it’s a bit all over the place) and the motivation was to help focus my gold making efforts, but so far that has absolutely NOT happened, thanks in part to IRL being busy, and in part due to the volatile nature of the auction house since the commodity merge.
On one of my servers I did very well, in a week I made a little over 275k profit. On my other server, however, I am in the red, down -25k. That one is a bit painful.
What happened this week? Well, I bought a few pieces of gear (a 291 piece which are still 70k on my server), and a whole bunch of supplies that I ended up doing nothing with. It was a combination of bad investments and horrible choices – and it happens. Overall I’m still ahead, I have 4.2 million and I should be at 1.8 million – but if it continues to trend this way, I will eventually fall behind. I think I can keep ahead of that – maybe. It will require some focus and that has not been my strong point, let’s be honest.
Both of these servers are low population, but one is a roleplay realm (and my alliance factioned realm of choice) and the other one is a regular realm and is my horde factioned realm of choice. I have 12 characters on each, and craft on each. I haven’t done any stocking up yet, my transmog pile is abysmal at best. That’s the fun of having limited time to play, there’s only so much I can do. I do try to do my covenant tables once a day, but even that can fall by the wayside.
In any case, for now, we’re on track. Hopefully that continues! As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
