    Got My Mind On My Money: Open end, 1.000.000g on one character

    2 years ago I reached 700k [http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ou-want-Blizz!] before the great lootgold nerf (5.0.4, before this: ~14k each ID). Weekly farm route from then on was only 1.5-2k lootgold (~4.5h). But thanks to AoE Loot and Potions of Luck, Troves of the Thunderking and all those Keys that open chests with gold, I made it to 1.000.000g.
    Troves of the Thunderking proved to be the most fun way to do this. I guess I never missed a key (each week, ~70+ since 5.2) since 5.2, because it's just a few minutes of visiting the island. A good way to improve the perfect farm route was grinding 15+ runs back to back. All in all you can get 650g+ on average from each run.

    And now, almost 2 years after 5.0.4 release (oh the irony), I crossed the 1m mark. Didn't expect this at all after the nerf to old content, even though you could get ~4k from Cata25hc (every week, raid that needs to be organized a bit). I don't know if I (still) have any competition when it comes to this, especially since there is no AV past 200k (and that's account wide), but I guess some of the Potion-of-Luck-Farmers made a huge leap during this Xpac.

    I'm not begging for a new AV, just proving that it can be done.
    And for those who wonder about an average gold per hour: 1k can easily be achieved in old content with speed clearruns (full group with only loot gold in mind). Same goes for Potion of Luck + Guo Lai Halls.

    7.7mil gold huh? not bad, about 10x more than I ahve between my 2 main toons :P

    I have around 120k looted but have over 1.2mil earned from auctions. I find it easier to get gold that way haha


    Also, nice gold from Vendors. I only have like 4k lol

    My main is just BS/Engineering (bc nostalgia + fun + Raid BIS), but my alts are feeding the auction house every ID, should be ~12.5m+ gold from the AH on them. And since I invest in profitable sales and don't buy anything that comes to mind, I still have a part of what I get from the AH. Vendor gold is quit natural for farming old content. When we start farming Cataclysm 25hc or MoP in next Xpac, Epics will sell for 40g+ at the vendor regularly (maybe nerf this one blizz??).

    I'm at ~500k myself right now... not bad considering I only got the 100k achieve this year!

    That being said it was almost all due to potion of luck farming.
