    You can do that in a month or so with some effort.
    People still try to sound cool about earning gold in WoW?

    Pro-tip - most people don't sit in front of the AH or spend their lives farming just to see their gold tally increase. Some, presumably like this guy, just spend thriftily and see their gold increase slowly over the years. I do the same. I couldn't care less about trying to amass gold as quickly as possible. I think I'd hate the game if I did, in fact.

    I'm at a couple million and I'd still be annoyed to lost 426k.

    For everyone not reading the second article it was over 4 mil gold not 426k.

    I like to think that most parents are mature enough to not hate their kid whenever they do something stupid. They're kids, they don't know any better.

    That being said, I'm also pretty sure most parents have called their kid a dumbass in their heads.

    Ha.

    I can't believe a 6 year old can operate the AH and mail the pets to himself..

    Er, it kinda is. Unless you're one of those people with several gold capped toons, and those guys are very rare...

    Love all the people in the thread trying to sound cool about gold making. Sure, 426k gold might not be that hard to make for those who know what they're doing, but it's not exactly a small sum of gold to lose either.
    Main toon: Priest
    Alts: Rogue, Druid and Paladin plus many, many more.

    Like you got anything to spend gold on other the repair Bill or useless vanity items you barely gonna use.

    A 6 year old shouldn't be playing WoW anyway.

    Isn't that over the gold cap? So he would've had to buy pets off several toons?

    I mean, this sounds like quite a scheme for a 6-year old to come up with on the spur of the moment when his dad left his PC unattended.

    Not everyone farms gold/trys to keep gold building up. So 426,000 is a lot to some people P

    Smart enough to know how to use the auction house, but just dumb enough to not know that 400k gold is way too much to spend on pets.

    There's only so much you can chalk up to the kid's stupidity, he spent all the gold on his dad's account on purpose.

    Maybe dad should spend more time with the kid and less playing games
