    World of Warcraft Wealth Survey 2012

    The World of Warcraft Wealth Survey 2012 has now concluded and the report has been published!

    Report: World of Warcraft Wealth Survey 2012

    I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to fill out the survey, this project would not be possible without help from the World of Warcraft community!

    Here's the tl;dr version:
    • Average player gold was 302,593
    • Median player gold was 80,000
    • 81.63% of players survey reported bloew average gold levels
    • "The 99%" owns 74.18% of the gold
    • Consortium readers had a 141% increase in average gold levels over the rest of the sample


    ----
    Hey everyone!

    As some of you might remember last year I ran a survey to try and determine the average player wealth and how various demographics affected wealth. After the success I had last year with the project I've decided to run it again to see where the wealth levels stand a year and an expansion later.

    The survey can be found again at http://TheGoldenCrusade.net/survey/ and more information can be found at Announcing the World of Warcraft Wealth Survey 2012 and World of Warcraft Wealth Survey though if you've participated in last years survey nothing much has changed so you can skip right to the survey.

    I'd also like to ask any bloggers if they could slip a bit about the survey into their next post or link it on their Twitter, I'm trying to get this survey to as many and as broad a selection of players as possible to help it's accuracy, and any help you can give to further that goal is greatly appreciated.

    I hope everyone here takes the survey, the background questions lets me isolate the average for Consortium readers so it should be interesting to see how we all stack up to the average player.

    Thanks in advance for the time, I'll keep things updated here as the survey progresses.

    Interesting last set of questions. Guess there is still a taboo out there.

    I wish I had thought about asking about that last year, but I'm glad I thought about it this year, interesting to see how many players confess to botting and the like

    Concerning the last set of questions, in my opinion I thought it lacked the option of "using" bot services ex. at the AH or /trade channel. Like for instance when you see one guy selling 500+ stacks of Ghost Iron Ore, that is way below average market price. But then again, maybe there aren't that many people who are actually thinking about it they are using a "service" like that?

    I like the addition of the last set of questions, but I think in the future your answers should represent a wider range of options. For example, I bought gold twice in vanilla, but the closest answer to that is "several times a month."

    Filled it out and like the last set of questions. Would be very curious to see the percentages on the outcome...

    Cheers!
