Choosing to spend gold in World of Warcraft is not such an easy task for me, even though I have millions of gold just sitting there. I have a hard time bringing myself to actually wanting to use it for anything – even with a plan in place. At one time I wanted to reach gold cap on a single server (I play on a handful of servers) but now I just want to enjoy myself – even if that means spending what I have. You can see the significant dip in gold when I moved all of my horde characters over to Hyjal from Argent Dawn – but I still have plenty of gold to make up for it. I’m trying to (slowly) earn it back, and make my way to gold cap again on the alliance side. We’ll see how that goes, especially since I’m not actively playing that faction at all.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
