Welcome to another entry into the 20 Days of Gold Making. The idea came from Auction House Addict, a blog written by Nev. She had a very good idea and then wrote a long post answering every one of the 20 questions.
I thought why not write them one post at a time? So that is what the series is about and I plan on making them as short as I can, about 500 or so words so that it’s not something that will take forever to read. So how about we get to the next question in the series?
If you set yourself a goal, what was your goal & at what point did you set it?
In my time playing the game, there were many goals that I set for myself. Many of them I met and some I never reached. It’s kind of hard for me to come up with any good goal that I came up with. Shocking the main goal most people have is to reach the gold cap. Which that I can understand and fully support someone who goes for such a goal.
I myself personally never set that goal for myself. This could also explain why I’ve never reached it, I’ve had more than a million goals in terms of the value of goods and gold but never held the million in gold itself. There was a goal however that comes to mind that I can remember that I set for myself and reached.
The first goal I can recall is the one when I first started gold making. I remember being level 77 and entering a random battleground, someone sent me a random whisper and asked “Hey why don’t you use your epic mount?” My reply was, I don’t have enough gold for it. And as you can guess he laughed at me. Back then it cost something near 200 gold to get your normal mount and like 150 gold or something to just buy the mounts.
You see back in the days when you had to really work to get something, to get your epic mount for level 60 you had to be level 60 for one and it cost something like 600 gold just for the training, then another 200 gold I think for a mount itself. It cost a crap load and that wasn’t even talking about your epic flying mount at 70.
This was Wrath of the Lich King days but before the BoA Gear really had hit and this was before gold-making really started to be known to the common community, such as myself. So to get enough gold to buy my epic flying mount as well as my ground mount it was something like 6,000 gold I needed, it took me three months of farming undead, I was level 80 mind you when this started.
It was one of those things that afterward I decided there had to be a better way of doing this and it was when the world of gold-making was opened up to me. I really have much to say about it, but I’ll save that for the next entry into the series.
