I was going about how to write this post up and I wondered if I should even write something about it before I even start. Today is the official start date of a little challenge I’m doing for myself. That is to make 20,000 gold in just 30 days using nothing but Glyphs with Inscription. That is my goal, my challenge for the next 30 days. Now there are some detail stats I should share with you so that you have all the information about this personal challenge. I will be doing this challenge on my level 100 Hunter currently; Nubslug on Burning Legion which is my current main server.
- The official start day was Monday, September 14th, 2015 at 12:45 pm.
- The starting gold amount was: 26,500 gold.
- The Challenge will end on October 14th at 12:45 pm.
- The Goal is 20,000 gold gain plus starting for a total of 45,500 gold.
For those of you who’ve been making gold for ages now, you might find this challenge silly. “Heck I can make that in a week!” Well, that might be true, but how much time do you have? Now not part of the stats I listed above, let’s take a look at how much time I’ll have to do this. First off I work a full-time 40-hour job on top of blogging here. That means that every day I’ll sleep at least 6-8 hours. I work for 8 hours five days a week. I also have an hour lunch, so I’m at work for 9 hours every day. When I get home, taking in driving time, if I have to go shopping, cooking and taking care of family duties, etc. On any given day I have between 5 pm to about 8 pm to do this challenge. That means I only have 3 hours per workday to mill, craft, and post. Every day when I wake up from work I do a quick cancel/repost before I go to work.
So in a 40 hour work week, I’m only going to have about 15 hours per week. This does not even take into account that some days I might not have any time due to family duties plus some days I don’t play at all and either do something else, like write for here or another one of my projects; case in point I write for other blogs, I try to visit other blogs and leave comments taking part in their community, I do other non-blogging activities online, I try to play Xbox when I can and some times I just need a break. My days off are another story and honestly, I can’t give you a time frame of how much I play right now.
As the weeks go, I’ll give you times for those days. Because some times I can play all day long and other days I’m not on a tall. Give or take; that’s just how it’s gonna be for me and how my general time goes with gaming. Below I’ll share with you my TSM 3.0 Glyph Group Export.
My Current Glyph Group Export
To be fair I’m not 100% if I have every glyph currently in there. This is what I have so far after coming back full-time for the most part with Nubslug making Glyphs. I have other groups I was working on for Inscription such as Darkmoon Cards, Shoulder Enchants, and Tome/Dust/Powder and other good gold makers. However with this run to get 20,000 Gold in 30 days with Glyph’s I’m going to focus 100% on the Glyph’s here as I’ve stated, so as the days go and I learn more and more of them, they will get added to the group. I’m hoping by the end of 30 days to have all the Glyphs currently in the game.
Why do this?
I asked myself the same thing, I mean why the hell would I do this? Seems like a big challenge that I might not be able to hit. The nice because I feel like it’ll get me back into gold making. I hope this goes well because if it does I want to do this again with another profession. I also just found it to be something different to write about than giving you a list of tips, saying this is what you should be crafting; what you should stockpile, etc.
When I was active in the past I did that, I did lists, I did how you should do this, but I didn’t give you any real data, any real this is how I’m doing it right now and how the progress is going and this is my goal. I hope that you enjoy reading this, I’m hoping to make at least my goal and maybe even more!
I mailed over all the gold I had leftover to Nubslug so I could have some starting gold. I was going to have to buy herbs to mill and inks and start crafting almost right away. As you can see in the screenshot above I drop from 26,500 gold to about 12,390 gold within a few days of buying herbs. I’m crafting 5 of every glyph right now and posting 3 each time. I’m hoping to push that number to 10, but I’ll only post 3 at a time, this way I won’t have to buy so many herbs and won’t have to spend so much time milling. I should only have to mill herbs for the hot-selling Glyph’s.
In my next update, I’ll go into more detail about the setup process with TSM 3.0 and how to come up with the best numbers for your server because what my number is in terms of how many I post, how often I post and the price and craft settings will be different for you. However, I will say that my net gain today was 241.6 gold base off my gold tracker I use. So I’m going back up a bit, slowly.
Hopefully, I’ll get better at this and be able to share some good data with you and I know some really bright people out in the community can share some tips even with me!

Until Next Time.
