Yay, finally joined the 100k club today.
How did you get to your 100k?
I returned to WoW on 11/1/2010 after a very long pause, with a single lvl 60 toon (enchanter/engineer) and all of 90 gold. Leveled the character to 80 and leveled profs to 450 just in time for Cata, then obviously went on to lvl 85 and 525/525.
My main moneymaker has been enchanting (enchant chest - mighty stats
, enchant weapon - hurricane
and enchant 2H weapon - mighty agility
made the bulk of my income), though I've done some comfortable profit flipping low-priced elementium ore, and a few thousands as well with the engineering pet (de-weaponized mechanical companion
I also kickstarted my gold-making process during Winter Veil, making about 5k selling small eggs I'd farmed myself for a couple hours.
Last but not least, I've been relying heavily on the remote AH to do some auction sniping (checking 4/5 times a day if my scrolls are still up there at the top).
Could you have done it without JMTC?
Unlikely. JMTC is an invaluable resource, both as a knowledge base and as a motivation. It helped me give myself some reasonable but still challenging goals, and gave me the tools I need to reach them.
All in all, without JMTC, I'm not quite sure I'd have tried making gold in WoW.
What "Gold Sinks" have you bought?
- Vial of the Sands (50k, back in January)
- some BoE epics (15k)
- 310% mounts for two chars (8k)
- a couple enchanted lanterns (4k for the maelstrom crystals)
