    WoW Gold cap - changed?

    I did some searching, but I couldn't find any information that it has been changed or increased. The number I keep seeing when trying to find out what it is - is 214,748 Gold, 36 Silver and 46 Copper. I expected to hit this today and thus not be able to pick up any more gold - yet I'm currently holding 214,777g 30s 98c

    Was it changed, or is the first number just incorrect? What is the current cap?

    Until recently, the first number was correct (or if not correct, at least close). It was changed in early 4.0 (4.0.1?) to 999,999g99s99c. Oddly enough, I've heard (but haven't tested) that the guild bank gold cap got reduced to that value at a later point (as in, for a while during 4.0 it was higher, but got softcapped in 4.0.6, if my information is correct).

    Well damn. I was all excited to have reached the gold cap today, only to find out that it's not the gold cap anymore. Shucks lol...

    Heh, I feel ya. I hit the 214ish cap about two weeks after it was raised. qq But hey, onto bigger goals now, eh?

    So if i understand correctly, there is a gold cap on the gbank too?

    Which means the ultimate goal is to have all character slots on account full and gold caped and gbank gold caped.

    Potentially each character could be a guild master as well....

    Good luck!

    What sucks is that you can't get that last copper onto your character. I have now three characters sitting with 999,999g99s99c and none of them is a millionaire.

    The guild bank originally did not have a (reachable) cap. The added the 999,999g99s99c cap to the bank the same day they increased the cap on individual characters. If your guild bank was over the cap, nothing happened except you couldn't add any more gold to it. (I got paranoid about being over the cap after a few months and drew the extra gold out of mine.)
