Thanks! I went from 8.4k to 35k gold in 10 days.
A big part of it was just deciding to make the commitment to keep making gold, and not just making enough to buy the next new shiny
I have no precise data on what percentage of money I made from what, but I will guesstimate.
40% from sale of raw ore, mostly elementium and a small amount of pyrite.
20% from enchant scrolls
10% gem sales.. some metas, some daily JC greens
10% playing the auction house.. vendor/resale
10% Belt Buckles
10% Other crafted... Engineering Yeti pet, etc....
I could have been easily over 40k, but I used a LOT of the ore I farmed to insta-level BS and Engineering. I also spent probably 1-2k on small "must-haves" for my toons, like a pair of ilvl 325 maces for my newly 85 Rogue.
I now have (all Ally, all the same server):
85 Hunter(main) - LW-508/Skinning - 525
85 Pally - Mining - 525/JC - 525
85 Lock - Tailor - 523/Enchanting - 525
85 Mage - Herbalism - 525/Inscription - 508
85 Deathknight - Mining - 525/Blacksmith - 525
85 Priest - Mining - 525/Engineering - 525
85 Rogue - Herbalism - 525/Alchemy - 525
71 Druid - Mining & Herb (Dual gatherer)
49 Shammy - no proffs to speak of...
45 Warrior - no proffs to speak of...
I am banking some stuff for patch day, but not a lot by the standards of THIS forum
I really want to level the Druid, and seriously power-farm, but I am having too much fun making money at the moment! I also would like to get more in-depth on the AH, but my plate is full with what I am doing, so I will pick that up a bit at a time... I also still want to level Tailor (not to mention LW and Inscrip.) I like that I can farm, I can quest, and still make money... made over 5k yester.. making 6k today. Before last week, my personal high was 22k total cash.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to reply in the OMG & JC forums... This is a BLAST!
