    Well this makes me feel better. I am a huge spender in game for achievements/mounts/anything to make my main a better player. Hit gold cap 4 months or so ago. Went up to 300k before dropping down to 120k in the first week of Cata (Realm First Blacksmithing and stocking up on cheap wrath mats will do that to you) - Now back up to 200k.

    Making money is easy enough once you have an idea of how markets work. If I did not spend on the hundreds of mounts and pets my main has plus a bunch of boe epics over the years I would easily be at 500k+. But in the first weeks of Cata I tried to remember that I play this game to raid and get achievements and that Gold Making is something that needs to support it not take over it.

    My big spending is done for now (least till I find someone with the vial drake) and I am shooting for 500k liquid next.

    Since this thread exists, I'll say that I broke 400k today in quite a fashion. I've sold 4 Vials over the weekend (last weekend), but I crafted 5. I gave the 5th one to a friend for his bday, and if I hadn't, I'd be at 500k. As of now I'm selling basically everything. I'd also like to say that I've spent 200k on epic items as well, so Cata has been GREAT FOR ME. I started the xpac at 330k, and since then I've gained 100k liquid, 8 new epics, 1 Vials of the sands, and have about 100k worth of items in my inventory...

    Anyways... grats to everyone who has hit a goal, and I'm aiming for that million! I've gained 100k each month for the last 3 months running (yes 100k a month at end of Wrath), so I hope to have 1 million by June at the latest. Good luck to everyone!

    Big milestone for me! I reached the 40k mark this weekend. Yeah I know that's nothing to most of you, but to me it was quite a feat. I'm a lazy goblin, don't really go out of my way too much to make gold so it builds up slowly. Plus I spend a lot on my toons!

    It's always nice to reach a new milestone regardless of what it is. Unfortunately it seems the higher you go, the less you actually notice your gold changing. Go from 230,000g to 240,000 and it feels like nothing. But go from 30,000g to 40,000g and it feels so awesome. So enjoy it while it lasts

    I hit the old gold cap last night. Not real sure how I feel about it, though.

    I just hit 100k yesterday and it feels GREAT seeing 6 digits on my main bank alt =D Unfortunately i have to invest some of it now because i am completely dry on everything that i usually sell. But none the less i'm very happy. I started off the whole gold making thing back in late October. The main draw to me was it was something rewarding that i could do with the small amount of play time i have during the week. I've been playing since open beta back in '04 but with a wife/kids/school/work my play time has dwindled to maybe a few hours a week at best so deciding to get into the gold making business felt like a good idea. When i starter back in October i had a measely 5k gold to my name.

    Looking back over the past 3 months i have no idea how i've gone from 5k-100k lol but i owe it all to the Consortium and JM2C forums. The single best thing i think i've learned is diversification. Whether it be raw enchanting mats, enchanting scrolls, raw gems, cut gems, AH flipping, glyphs or the occasional lucky snatch list grab i can say that if i had focused solely on one or two markets that i probably wouldn't have the gold i have now.

    Now i'm attempting to focus on upping my income and it will take a little more patience and research in my part. I'm very hesitant to invest a lot of my liquid gold into markets but i know its needed to up my overall income from a few thousand a week to 10K+ a week. As of late i've just been watching the markets and reacting instead of anticiapating. But it seems like most markets are extremely volatile right now so i guess that's why i'm shakey on investing say 10-20k into ore or even flipping. Over the past week i've seen prices fluctuate so much. Just for an example, Obsidium Ore was 115-140g a stack friday, yesterday it was 75 and today its back to 110ish. Hypnotic Dust last week i was selling for 12-15g each, right now it's flooded at 4-6g each. Blue cut gems fluctuate wildly as well, Inferno's fetch between 80 and 185 depending on when i decide to post. I guess i just afraid that these markets will even out and bottom out at the lower ends and i'm scared that i'll end up with an overstock and won't be able to move it all at profit =/

    Congrats, f4tabb0t! - breaking 6-figures is an awesome feeling. It's pretty cool to realize what you can do.

    True that! And another thing creeps in is complacency, i.e. things I used to get excited about in the 5-digits are now purposely scoffed at because I just don't have time. The Snatch list helps, but some of the more mundane tasks (flying around to all the vendors to buy NPC sold items to resell on the AH) just takes up too much time for me now, so I "teach" that trick to other gold making trainees I know! I will say I now give away more gold than I ever thought I would even have, guildies, friends, etc.

    Nice one Anaalius. I like your blog by the way - I've been reading it for a long time.

    I've just cleared 900k liquid and am striving for that 1 million goal. I wonder what I'll do when I reach it? It should be in the next week or two if things continue as they are.

    I'm not sure how I'll feel as it's been a goal for quite a while. Has anyone ever found reaching their goal demotivating?
