“Nothing makes us more vulnerable than loneliness, except greed.”
Gold: Lull Edition
I’m not a huge fan of the gold mini-game. It could be fun to set up the Trade Skill Master addon and follow the Undermine Journal except that I’d rather play different aspects of the game than doing that.
Gold Making feels like an old thing in WoW. Today we earn plenty of gold by playing the designed game and can buy almost anything that we’d need to improve our character. The idea of visiting a gold seller to buy high-end gear feels like a very old idea. The game is designed differently.
But there is the gold sink mount in Battle of Azeroth.
I am too late to the gold party to make it but I’m willing to try. I’ve looked at some of the gold-making advice and one of the top things is simple: run gold missions on many Alts.
And I didn’t really finish all of my Alts. Many I played until I got what I wanted and dropped them. Many of you probably did complete the process and are sitting on a lot of potential.
I currently have 3.4 million across my characters on my realm. So many of them are sitting on the gold, uncollected, from the WoD heyday. If I could possibly ding six million before BfA, I’d happily drop five million on the mount and not be bankrupt going into a new expac. If I am at five or less (very likely), I’ll earn up the rep and buy it later with the discount.
I have three characters tricked out enough to do 200% gold missions and I can try to remember to look for gold missions on the board. Maybe once in the morning and again sometime later in the afternoon or nighttime.
Once upon a time, I played a game that I called Gold Rush. I’d dump the hundreds of different items that I’d stockpiled for crafting into the AH. They’d sell or come back and I’d toss them up again; especially on the weekend. However, the days of needing the older materials are gone — tailors don’t need netherweave to level up their skills any more. But, someone might need Titansteel: we’ll have to find out.
Speculation is that the gold missions will be nerfed either at the pre-patch or certainly at the drop; so during this lull I might as well exploit it as best that I can and maybe I can buy a gold sink mount someday!
