I am a firm believer that it is never too late to go after something you want. You might have to approach it from a different angle than you had originally imagined, but eventually, you’ll get there. Thus, when I decided that I really did want to earn that 5 million gold mount even though I had squandered away almost all of my millions and making money in BFA is more difficult than it had been previously (especially with folks jumping ship to classic left right and center) I knew it would be an achievable goal. Eventually.

I’m a casual player at the best of times, so I set myself with a 365 day goal. A year. That means each day I should bring in at least 13,699 gold. Some days I’ll get more, some days I’ll get less, but overall it should be roughly that amount in order to hit my goal. I’m hoping to achieve it in MUCH less than 365 days, but that would just be a nice bonus.

I’m back to playing just alliance, I faction changed my monk (my main for the past few years) and organized all of my items and characters. I’m still playing classic but it’s much more of a ‘playing the AH and not much else’ game these days. I simply don’t have the time to dedicate to it that it requires. NOT the fault of the game. After all, 15 years ago when I played I wasn’t married, didn’t have a kid (let alone two) and time was readily available even though I may not have known it right then.

Excited? YES I am. I love giving myself goals like this in game. Will I succeed? Who knows, last time I failed gloriously. I reached just over 3 million and then spent it on a lot of stuff. We’ll see if I can stick with it this time.

As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
