So this morning I log on, clean out ye ol' mailbox, check TUJ for deals, etc., and that's when I see it: [Invincible's Reins] had finally appeared on my little server's BMAH, and it was already up to almost a 300k bid.
I waffled a bit, debating on playing the waiting game to perhaps bid once the auction time moved to short, but despite my server's low population I'm not the only one with deep pockets, alas. Then I mentally channeled my inner Gollum, I mean, Goblin, and said IT'S MINE! I promptly re-appropriated all the gold from my other toons (I keep 100k on each spare 90), flew to the BMAH, and dropped 999,999 on my future mount. ZERO REGRETS!
And that's where the THANK YOU comes in; without the fine folks on this website, I'd have some spare gold to be sure, but nothing like the amount I've been able to generate in the last year or so. I only really started getting serious about gold making in late Cata. Your posts and comments on how to move, anticipate and react to the markets are invaluable and makes me glad I'm a contributing member.
Let me just add, this is like the 3rd mount I've been able to buy off the BMAH, and there is no finer feeling then instantly outbidding other players constantly and NOT having to run back and forth to the mailbox to retrieve the gold.
So Merry Christmas to me, and a Happy and hopefully Prosperous New Year to all of YOU fine Goblins!
