    500k is 10 times as much money, but probably 100-1000 times less people who have it..
    probably the "incredibly small" refers to single characters, most of people with more than 500k have ultiple characters for auctions and the wealth is spread

    for example i have 700k and something, if i spread them among my auction chars and main, i don't have more than 200k on each (3 auction chars and 1 main)

    I had 500 k just from casually selling glyphs and I ended up treating myself and getting a swift spectral for 300k. Sadly I cancelled my account a month later

You leverage your existing markets to their maximum, and then you see what's left over and maybe expand to new markets.
    Hey could you be a bit more specific about the concept of "full shuffle"?

    Sadly it's like IRL where the best way of making Gold is just having it already. For example I bought my first TCG Mount before dupers were around, a corrupted Hippogryph, for 360k with all my Gold and also Days of Effort since I bought it from someone who transferred Servers for it and I had to buy him a high lvl Guild to migrate back with his Gold.

    And afterwards I found myself unable to generate Gold fast. There are a lot of opportunities, some of which have been mentioned already, where you can invest a great amount of gold and turn it into an even greater profit which works precisely because only few people have a great amount of Gold to invest in and also because it is indeed a high risk, as some have pointed out and you can only do these great deals if you have many so just enough of the deals net you profit.

    For Example, before Pandaland Launch, I noticed that all Items other than HC Raiding were below itemlevel 500 so I amassed Ebonsteel Belt Buckles from the oversaturated Cataclysm Market where everyone was Itemcapped but when pandaland launched the Ebonsteel Belt Buckle ilvl cap was reduced from 500 to 372 rendering all my plans to profit off of it useless.


    If you really have Millions and don't know what to spend it on, maybe you can try Blizzcon Pets or Limited Edition Items like the Muurloc Costume. And of course if you can play the Gold but you can't play the Game you could buy Raid Boosts for your Hardmode Mounts like the heavenly Red Cloud Serpent or the ThunderKing Bat, Challenge Mode GOld for animated transmog, or RBG Rating for a "vicious" Mount and if you have Millions there could possibly be people who offer Gladiator Dragons for that.





    About the amount of people having over 500k.. it's abysmall:
    -Most of the people playing don't even reach max level.
    -When you make AH profits, it's precisely because there is a horde of people who buy from there for every person who profits from it.
    -With Pandaland Goldsinks (Repair, many Vendor Mounts etc ) I beleieve the majority of people are actualyl getting poorer. I started playing in Cataclysm and I noticed how quiet a lot of people did not have the maximal flying speed Level because they couldn't afford the 4/3.5k
    In Pandaland I even met several people who couldn't afford Pandaria flying license even though it's cheaper than previous flying. Some beg for Gold on LV90, others want to buy a Taxi to the PvP Vendor, and I once raided with a person who needed a summon for raiding because she/he levelled only through dungeons, claiming the flying cost for questing would be too high for her/him.
    Even I was baffled when after my Levelling from 85 to LV90 there was fewer Gold in my pocket than before when all I did was buying the 2 cheap Vendor Yaks and a Flight License.

    I do find it silly the people thinking they sound cool with comments about how 500k isn't much lol, It doesn't matter how much gold you have, 500k will always be a lot of gold, Once you've got far more gold than the most expensive item can cost you easily have a lot, Stop being silly

    I haven't had to concern myself with gold for a very long time, and i buy myself things all the time, same with buying friends mounts and giving away chunks of gold, But i still get excited when i find a junk item that sells for 100g lol, every little helps, and The only way (IMO) you can not see the value in smaller amounts of gold like that is if you've brought your gold, otherwise you know the value of it

    When I make an Alt, and when i reach like 1/5/100g i get excited still lol

    Sitting at 2m currently and have had a maximum of 5m

    Basically it's just the same thing as others and being able to accept lower profit margins to bully people out of markets who have less gold that will in the end make you the most gold as well as diversifying the markets in which you do this with.

    If done right you can easily make 1m+ per month with only a few hours a day spent on gold making if that. It's not rocket science just a game of patience and understanding.

    This is very good advice actually, i never used to touch things if they didn't net me at least 5-10g Clear profit, Then i thought about if something makes me any profit, then i would go for, even like a few silver, and since then my gold income tripled, it's crazy, Ofcourse you will notice it more if you're someone like me who throws buckets of gold into investments, as ofcourse if it's a small return you'll notice it more if you'v just spent 30k rather than if you spent 50 lol

    And that really is the way to see it. It is a game, if tomorrow you die - what good did all the gold you saved up get you. You know that mount you passed up that one time because you were too greedy to part with some gold? well now that you are dead what good is that gold to you. You have proved to be a formidable WoW gold barren - now go out and have some fun with it....
    before it is too late.

    I would probably employ minions to do my bidding and I myself do something more important.

    I would love to get my hands on the Grand Expedition Yak if I had the gold for it. That's probably what I would buy first.

    Its a game, whats the point of making gold in it? Buying an ungly mount for 200k? Come on?

    I wouldn't do a shit if i had more gold tbh.

    Some people have fun making gold. What's the point in playing a game if you can't have fun? :P

    "Ugly" is subject to taste. Like for example I love the Corrupted Hippogryf for riding in the Forest on levelling Alts, or going Battlegrounds with a Wooly White Rhino and also a Rhino Hunter Pet makes me feel like a Warlord

    And I would argue that the Deathwing look horrible but that didn't stop People from buying it for 400k or whatever from Boost Runs. On the other Hand I adore the new Bat Mount whilst it surely Looks "ugly" for some other Folks.

    I bought the 108k yak a while back and around 40k on other mounts. I deposited around 80k in my previous 2 guilds for guild repairs. I spend a lot on Gear/Trinkets, around 90k. I have 140k now. I have loose fingers...

    Even in real life, money doesn't make me happy, spending it does.

    And there are sims for the stock market.

    The point is that this is a very in depth game and one of the aspects that has spun off is the "gold making community"; while it may not have been an indended aspect of the game it is very much one now and as much a niche area as world first raiding if not more{popular}.

    What are you talking about 500k+ I just cracked 100k for the first time ever and I feel like I am super rich. But I started in Vanilla where getting 100 gold felt like an accomplishment. If I could get my hands on 500 I'd probably be like I am with 100, afraid to spend it and just sitting on it because I don't want to drop too low, to where I don't have gold for the next cool thing. Plus, I spent 8 years getting to 100k, what item is worth that amount of time?

    What's worth that? Pay me 50k and I'll teach you, step-by-step, how to make that much per week in less time than one daily quest hub.

    As for the OP - If you're at a comfortable gold level now, I'd suggest two uses for your stash.

    If you want to grow your wealth: Buy/Sell Server Transfer Runs. I'd net 250k profit per run back in WOTLK days(which would be enormous with MoP inflation). It's a fun side-game in and of itself for the goldmaking affectionado. You have to consider prices on two different economies, utilizing limited space in your bank and bags and chosen character. The planning and execution of a run is well worth the effort, even if it only provides you perspective about your own realm's economy.

    If you want to spend your wealth: Buy a heroic raid run + loot from a top guild. If you're into raiding, the experience and gear will obviously benefit your own play. If you're not yet into raiding, it will allow you to jump right up to a competitive ilvl and kill count. If you're really smart about the run, you can actually make gold from it. This last tier I made more than the cost of a 6/6H HoF run by selling SOME of the loot I won to their own guild members through whispers. Many of them wanted the BiS gear that was guaranteed for me and offered to buy it back from me privately.
