I am pretty conservative, I dont make big purchases. However, I do spend gold on things I could easily craft or make myself. I am pretty lazy when it comes to that kind of thing. I will buy pvp blue crafted stuff even tho I can make it on another toon becuz I am too lazy to switch over and farm up mats. I have prolly lost several 100k gold doing this. I also bought a brawlers guild invite off the BMAH when I couldve waited a week or so and saved 30k gold.
