I meant to post this last week, but got busy playing Rift and trying out the new Sims Medieval game, both of which I’ll talk about more in later posts!
I did finally manage to break 200,000g in World of Warcraft just a few days before my account expired. I’d considered giving it all away, or buying something extravagant like the Crimson Deathcharger before calling it quits, but decided to hold onto it because of a question that comes up during the cancellation process. It asked, “How likely are you to return?” and the truth is that I have no doubt that I’ll one day jump back into Azeroth, even if it’s just to try out a new event or get a cool mount or try out a new expansion. If they added new hairstyles, colors and some kind of pink mount that was obtainable outside raiding, psht, I’d re-activate my account tomorrow! Though I highly doubt those things can be found on Blizzard’s To Do list, I’m sure they will come out with something that sparks my interest eventually. As people say, it’s my $20 a month, it’s just that right now I am having more fun using that $20 on Rift than I was on WoW.
I’d intended to get into how I made the 200,000g in this post, but the more I think about it, the less I can pin-point any major markets or strategies I used. Having a max level of every profession meant I could just sell whatever was selling the best at any given time, and I never had to outsource any crafting steps, because I had it all covered. As other people crowded a market driving prices down, I’d just jump into something else. I went from selling profession bags to enchanting rods to engineering pets to flasks to dreamcloth epics and everything in between. I never really focused on it too intently, and rarely spent more than about an hour a day specifically playing around on the Auction House. It was a fun side-game during my WoW time, but even it wasn’t quite enough to keep me subscribed. Nonetheless, it will be nice to return to that amount of gold whenever I do jump back into it! Maybe whenever that happens I can even push it to 500,000!
Until then, thanks for reading, and I promise to do my best to keep it interesting, even if it’s not always about WoW!
