    It is small.

    But people who take part in this survey are not the average players at all.

    Most of the people who bought wow did not even leveled to max level. Just 10% does normal raids, 15% lfr. No wonder that "The percentage of players that has over 50k gold is incredibly small."

    Well.. Raiding is certainly NOT a way of inreasig your wealth.. In order to afford raiding (enchants, gems, reforge, flasks and food, not to mention repairs) you need a pretty stable income.. 1-2k gold, per week, is bare minimum..
    Forthat amount of gold, non-raiders could easily become "those with wealth"...

    Yes I've read that before, and it makes me kind of curious, I mean does he mean the number of *characters* with over 50k gold is incredibly small? Unfortunately one of the glaring issues of this survey is that it has no chance of reaching the super casual players that don't visit any of the sites the survey has been posted too

I probably increased my wealth 5 fold in Cata, but that's not really reflect in my answer compared to last time and so on.
    Yea it's an inherent weakness in the survey, but given the choice between this and trying to get players to get their worth it's gonna be this every time

    That introduces problems with memory recollection and really doesn't do a whole lot for the scope of this survey. Much better to simply ask for something they can double check real quick than trying to recall how much they had x time ago

    You may have wanted to define some of the terms in the final question as well. For instance, the buying gold question: Blizz doesn't have any issues with trading gold for game time, however gold for real life currency they do. So clearly if they consider there a difference, perhaps your survey should too.

    Interesting, can't wait to see the results

    Nice survey, looking forward to seeing the results.

    For those who haven't completed the survey yet you have until midnight Saturday night (eastern) to fill it out! It'll only take a minute or two, just 5 super easy questions.

    And I'd like to thank everyone who's completed it so far! Look forward to the report early next week

    It's quite interesting noting that the people filling out the survey has so much gold when Blizzard has stated several times that it's a miniscule amount of players that have more than 50k. It's pretty telling which players actually visit fansites and participate in the community.

    I have to say that I have currently 400 gold on all chars together ( not 400k, 400 ), with one more or less fresh lvl90 and one ongoing twink lvl 26, soon to be 90, too.

    I never understood how people make gold in this game. I suck at it even though I play WoW for 8 years now.

    I guess if you sum up all the gold I made since vanilla, I would be way under 500k gold... which some people make every week.

    Play the AH my ass... You cant tell me that I have to buy one gem, refine it, sell it, buy two gems, refine them, sell them, buy four gems etc...
