    I broke 300k/day on my most played AH bankie, here is the unmodified fullscreen screenshot, where I tried to show as much information as possible.

    [​IMG]

    I came back to WoW at the beginning of February and realized I needed to be self-sustainable in order to not be a beggar. (asking for a 20k loan from the 800k guild bank but getting rejected was one of the major reasons i started trying to make gold systematically)

    The initial idea was to make enough gold by flipping items in the AH to support a second account (main account would be a veteran account for 20-29 PvP) but here we go, 4 months later...i just bought https://www.wowhead.com/item=40110/haunted-memento for 350k to use on my twink.

    I was really excited when i first surpassed 800k because that was more than the guild bank, but at this point i am numb with respect to gold. i don't even feel anything when i buy something for 10k and sell it for 20k within a day.

    I am still a small fish compared to accounts that have cross-realm operations but I think I have established myself on my server pretty well in a relatively short period of time.

    Warning: you are better off doing any minimum-wage job than trying to make gold in WoW from a $$$ per hour perspective. Case in point: I lost about $7k of real life post-tax income (with my business) due to being too involved with WoW over February/March/April (not only AH but also PvP), so this has been a huge net negative for me from a $$$ perspective, but the sense of accomplishment it gave me is priceless.

    If you're losing $7k in real life by playing this game maybe you should take a step back and re-evaluate.

    I am at a stage in my life where $7k doesnt make a huge impact anyway. It is extra income (side hussle) lost anyway.

    If you feel that a video guide on gold making can help people you should make it, keep in mind ppl outside these forums could also use it or find it helpful.

    Yup i am really just looking for some yes replies.

    People who said no don't have to watch it. i am sure they will though, the human mind is weird sometimes, isn't it.

    the amount of gold most top ah players have are usually in the range of 9-digits .. usually on the higher end .. i have yet come across anyone having 10-digits .. yes .. they are usually x-realms .. its physical gold, not the worth of items they have

    Yeah, he should be worth over.. But I have never see him with over a bil physical gold.. But his worth is over that amount for sure.. Most of his gold comes from high value mounts and collectables, back in those days I was approached by China duplicates too, but I don't like mounts and collectables, never dump any gold into these for investment.. I reckon any players having close to a billion would be able to live a very comfortable wow life

    I say yes times infinity dude. Your content and productivity rate here is a much needed change of fresh air from the drones that populate the vocal majority... you're on a barstool sports rate for content and that's impressive imo

    has it occurred to you that $7k might not mean the same to me as it does to you?

    don't rush to an answer, let that sink in.

    i didn't rush to an answer. i did simple math in my head. you could have just saved the time you had and buy the shit off epicnpc for 1 mill = 80 dollars. Because if you wasted 7k dollars of real money that would equal 87 million gold you could of had versus whatever amount you currently have. Which i am sure is not even close. Now if you rather have whatever you made in millions versus 87 mill, then that's on you. A business dont care how you got there, it cares how much you made. Not that you had fun or nothing, who gives a shit about that.
