Road to 5 million – for the casual gamer
Before BfA released I was making a fair amount of gold in Warcraft, but that was before my second child was born, and as surprising as it is to say, I had a lot more free time back then. Now, not so much. I earned just a hair shy of 5 million gold and then I spent it on subscriptions, the BfA collector’s edition, all of the battle pets from the shop that I didn’t previously own, and a few other bits and bobs. That depleted my gold but not down to zero.
For 2019 I’d like to try to reach 5 million – but in an ultra casual way. I’m not starting from scratch, I’m starting with a little over 1.5 million gold. I’m averaging things out to 14,000k a day, 365 days, and we’ll see how long it takes me to get there with my play time which ranges between 10 minutes and an hour daily.
I’m confident it’s possible, and I love that it’s something that will span over the entire year rather than just a few short months (that way I don’t feel pressured or that it’s too hectic). I’m not sure what I’ll actually DO with 5 million gold, I haven’t decided if I want to purchase the AH mount – but I probably will, if for no other reason than to be able to use the AH at remote locations where I won’t get phased due to population.
Each month I’ll create a new chart like the one above, so I should have a collection of 12 that put me closer and closer to the end goal. Exciting? Well, depends on how you like to play. For me, yes, this is exciting. I love making gold in WoW, and while I may not be the best at it, it IS something I think I do OK at.
I plan on doing some farming, some crafting, and whatever else manages to pop into my timeline that I can handle. End game? Probably not, but that’s alright.
I probably won’t write about it here every single day, but I’ll try to post at least once a week with the progress, maybe I’ll set it to be every Wednesday just to follow with tradition. Check back next Wednesday to see if I’ve met my goal of 126,000 gold (this is a joke, I’m already at 1,500,000, so if I can’t keep above 126,000 there are some serious issues we’ll have to look at).
Happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!
