EDIT: I was a bit unclear in this entry, but I will be continuing to write daily entries in the blog and post on "From the ground up" on Saturdays. Not going anywhere just yet.
Well, I've done it. I have officially amassed over a million gold in WoW and hit a fifth gold cap. My what a long strange trip it's been. Some may ask me how this is possible, how can you possibly get a million gold? Well the answer is rather simple: I sell stuff.
I do not: bot, farm for hours, exploit bugs or glitches or drop rates, have more than 1 account, have a "business partner," get lucky with insane sales that I take full advantage of such as the release of dual spec, have somebody help in any way with my auctions, camp the AH, sell gold, violate the world of warcraft EULA, have a monopoly on any market or trade materials.
I recently said that once I hit the mark I'd be closing up shop, but due to my "From the ground up" project I'll be sticking around a bit longer. But with me reaching the 1,000,000g marker and having no other goals for my primary industry you'll be seeing changes, mostly in my reports and markets that I watch.
~ Buying a run for two through ICC, preferably 25 man but if that's not possible then I'll settle for 10. Willing to pay a VERY large amount of money obviously. Naturally I'll be passing on all loot, but if a BVB or something equally awesome looking happens to drop I'd most likely try to buy it off who ever in the hosting guild gets it.
~ I'll still be continually working a lot of the markets that I am now, but a number of them I'll be completely getting out of. I'll be removing my selling thresholds from all items and selling them until I'm completely out of inventory for that particular market. I'm sticking with enchanting and smithing as it's quite fun, tailoring cuz it's easy, and epic gems because the current state of the market fascinates me. The rest you won't be seeing anything about them in my reports once I'm out. It'll definitely be interesting to see how much gold I have in raw materials stokpiled that's for sure. When I publish my next business report I'll be more specific as to what markets I won't be working in.
~ Going to buy a gladiator to carry me to at least 1800 to get a nice feel for the arena and a shiny weapon as I never bothered to play the team bouncing game to find decent players to PvP with. I've done too much of that with raid guilds trying to find a quality one.
~ One idea that I'm toying around with is having a sort of Q&A session on my server where you can make a level 1 and join a raid with me and we can all just BS around and talk about the AH game. Though there's the very high potential for trolls and the low amount of participants, so not sure if it's worth doing.
~ Continue on as planned with my Priest and the "From the ground up" project. The goal is to have all riding skills and dual spec etc trained by the time I hit 80, get a large stake in enchanting and glyph markets and fully decked out in BoE purples and high end blues. Then see how hard I fail in ToC/ICC as disc. Heh.
I really don't have much in the way of closing words about this other than damn has this been FUN!
This blog is about discovering all of the ways to make money in Rift. There are no cheats, hacks, or exploits used in any of my methods.
After amassing a 2 million gold fortune in wow I decided to come over to Rift and see how well I can do there. It is my belief that the game does not matter as much as the methods used and mine have already been proven to work and work well.
