    How many Millionaires per average server?

    As I approach the 1M mark, I'm wondering how many are on my server already. So far I've only met one other, but that don't mean anything. If my competition is any indication, there seems to be plenty of other people doing the same things I've done. I just wish there was a way to tell.

    So what would you guess about the number of millionaires on the average size server? What about your own server? What ways have you tracked them down or tried to count them?

    I know my server isn't listed right now... I'm not sure why I'm so fond of being incognito.



    *edit: I meant to put this in general if someone wants to move it

    From what I've viewed on my server. I'd say there is probably one millionaire, maybe not even one. I keep a close eye on all the markets, and who the big sellers are. There aren't a lot of them on my server. There are only about two or three people that are selling over 100k in auctions, and a good chunk of that is purple boe epics they are selling for their guild bank. I believe one guild on my server (who were a top 100 guild at one point) must be near a million in gold.

    I know of 3 including myself on my server, but I wouldnt be surprised if there were a few more at least.

    I think there's just 1 guy on my server, he plays the ah on both horde and alliance but only puts expensive stuff on alliance, I can somewhat tell with his similar naming schemes and items post spread.

    I only know of one, maybe two on my server. If I ever actually saved my gold instead of reinvesting it id probably be up there too

    I'd bet there are at least a few per server. I play on a fairly small pop server (Echo Isles) and know there are at a minimum three alliance side and one horde side. And that does not even include a single one of the "big sellers" listed on The Undermine Journal.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say an average of 3 per faction on the average server. This means higher pop/volume servers such as Illidan (Earthen Ring?) will have more to offset the 0-1 on smaller servers.

    On my realm, I know three millionairs. One's got about 2million, one's got SIX million (spread over multiple realms) and me. I doubt there are many more, but I think maybe 4-5 more, so total of 7-8 for my realm (EU-Nordrassil).

    I can definitely see how much fun cross server arbitrage could be if you had the gold on several realms and didn't mind paying for realm transfers. It would be like cross faction only with much less competition.

    And 0 risk and 0 challenge. Not sure where the fun in that is.
