    You are just not playing the game. Go farm anything for an hour that does not involve dieing and you'll double your ... "fortune".
    really depends on what server you are on.

    the most ive ever had was 100k doing something no one else did. now everyone knows about and im on average at 5k gold. have 5 85's that i raid with so i often change gems and since they are insanely expensive on my server i never really have gold.

    It takes around 5k gold to fully gem/enchant/reforge a toon. I use that as my standard and try not to go below that. There really isn't any use for gold right now.

    omg give your prices please.

    on xavius if i buy mats. it will cost me 12-20k to full gem and enchant my chars each.

    basicly do dailes on all 8 85's (since the priest and warlock is on other servers so it is only 8) and sell all the cloth, ore, herb, skinn u find everyday
    I couldn't get myself to do dailys with even more then one character. O_o

    I think if you include everyone, then the average is about 60-80k.

    I'm currently at 800k

    Pick your profession, stick to that

    go farm a bunch of shit, figure out what people are willing to spend, put all of it on the ah, use appraiser to start.... after you've got some cash you can start buying out under cutters instead of waiting for other players to buy them out, then resell them. learn peak hours for your server, all that.. once you get good you can expand and buyout undercuttters in other stuffs and resell at a higher price.

    Average gold? If you are talking about all level 85 players, i expect more than half would have less than 1K.

    I usually sit around 70k and I spend it about as much as I earn it. Doing dailies on its own gives you hundreds of gold.

    These tables bar our way.. ┬──┬ ┬──┬

    I was making a killing buying ore from botters. When all the bots went down, my income did too. I went from around 300k total on all my chars to...sheesh, I think last I checked I was sitting around 1.9k on both of my accounts combined lol.

    I've gotten out of the gold-making for this expansion. When MoP hits, I should be rolling in the cash. Been stockpiling a lot of mats that people will need for PL'ing their monk's professions. We'll see how that works.

    I started back up from scratch back in Feb and I have 40k. That is including leveling profession, artisan riding, and gemming/enchanting/reforging to raid. If I wasn't concerned about leveling professions and just selling mats, I would have much more. Plus, I don't run dailies nor play the AH. I have still yet to get the 5-day in row daily achievement.

    I don't know how anyone who has been established in this game for years is sitting under 100k.

    The big players usually have a stable of crafting alts. I myself have 3x alchemists (all 3 specs, and 3x transmute cds, a JC/Enchanter for easy ore shuffle, A Smith, A tailor, and a scribe. I am working on a leatherworker. There are lots of viable markets. Gems and Raid Consumables sell well on tuesday. Bags sell pretty good all week. Fortune cards = big bang. It costs me on average about 40g for 2 stacks of whiptail, and then I can make a stack of cards with that, or a stack of fortune cookie which sells for over 120g

    The AVERAGE player is probably not on these forums, probably doesn't farm the AH and most likely barely even raids/PvP's. THOSE players most likely average out around 5-10k g.

    On my main server I have something around 300k, I don't really look how much stuff are sold,

    But on my other server, I have 2 toons, and JC shuffling is crap, I make my cash with my mining/herbing toon, and I wish I could touch my 300k on this server because you don't do alot with 5k

    Pretty much the same for me I was running the glyph marking floating on what seemed to be mostly massive amounts of botted herbs - every now and then there would be one selling insane amounts of stacks and I would spend an afternoon turning them into glyphs and making tens of thousands of gold the next week or two. I had saved up 300k gold for the legendary staff which turned out to be pointless. I then pretty much stopped getting gold and I'm down around 30k across my account - I always buy the best gems and enchants without bothering to get mats or have someone craft etc. so I guess I'm putting my money back into the economy that way :P

    To me it seems that it's a sort of extremely simplified mini system of real world economics/jobs. The people that do the grunt work (gather herbs/ores etc.) get low fees but they can always do it and the income is pretty steady. Then there is the people who buy materials and make products - they make more money, but can easily risk loosing as well - and as real world it depends on your "craft". The big money can be made by playing market and with populations on servers low it's becoming increasingly easy to do it.

    I would say 10K.

  19. #219
    haha man in TBC I bought the annihlator holo gogs recipe for 20k gold.

    I had about 80k combined on my two mages.

  20. #220
    i suspect the average to be way higher than the median, which possibly is at about 20k. yes that low because there're plenty of people who simply can't manage their gold.
