Wrapping Up: Week Sixteen

I'm late again! Such a naughty Tella.. tsk tsk.

Week: 41,924g

Total: 451,079g

Oh snap, looks like I went and blew my goal out of the water again. Gee, I think I might have to give myself more of a challenge! This shit is getting easy! ;D. What should my next goal be? Should I go for a 3rd cap? Or maybe.. Maybe I should go for a MILLION.. I think a Million sounds damn good :)

Had another very busy week outside of WOW.. My grandma's surgery went well and shes recovering great! I've had to finish a lot of her projects and tie up loose ends for her since shes going to be moving to the states to start Chemo.

I'm returning to the US on Jan 10th. Can't wait to get home and back into my old routine. Not to mention playing WOW with no lag! Man it's rough playing with 3,000 latency. Auctions take FORRREEEVVVERRR!! Lol.

Had a nice raid week, new bosses are fun! :) We downed Festergut and Rotface in 25, havn't done 10man yet. My priestess got a lot of new gear, she looks awesome in her T10 shoulders and helm!

Well this had to be short guys, I have a lot to do. <3 you all.

  1. whoa :D congratulations on the double cap!

    you should go for a million next!

  2. While I never kept track myself, you could also keep track of the date of each gold cap you hit. GL with one million!

  3. Grats, I'm going to go through your old posts to see how you are managing to pull in 40K/week. I presume you hold back on big expenditures.

    If you want a challenge we should start a gold making competition :) but everyone would have to start at 0g with no inventory (only max professions) then see who can hit the cap fastest.

    I'm currently at 14k/week but only with inscription, just got enchanting and JC maxed today so we'll see how much that raises my daily profit.

    Glad to hear your Grandma is doing better.

    I just wish I was as good as this. I just can't seem to get past 1-2k a week. This is an awsome blog and I am learning alot from it. thank you for taking the time to write!

  5. Hey there!

    I've been watching your blog for several weeks now and trying to use some of your ideas on my own server , with very little luck :'( i play on a high pop server but seem to be blocked by the fact that i cna only play several hours in the evening as of work commitments etc , i am how ever hoping to hit the cap at some stage and just started several weeks ago , currently at 6k gold but can never seem to get much further , i'm hoping i can get a few tips or tricks from you (recent would be awesome) as some of the older blog posts are of course pre 3.3 , anyway i have maxx level prof , BS , Enchanting , mining , herbing , Alch, LW , Inscription and of course JC with limited cutts

    sorry for the wall of text!

  6. Hey, Been reading your blog for a few weeks now, just started getting into making gold a bit more seriously. Starting now at about 1k gold, max JC, max enchanting, and leveling inscription, although somewhat slowly as i attempt to find a scribe to make my ink, cheaper to buy herbs and hire someone than buying plain inks or low level herbs. I found your tip on opening mail faster to be extremely helpful for those times I'm pulling in greens to shard or money from auctions. Another helpful hint if you hadn't heard is to reload your UI every time you empty your mailbox, collect 50, reload, then collect the next 50. It makes the mail appear and register faster to be opened. GL on one million, any tips for getting started and getting past the milestones of the first 5k and the first 10k would be greatly appreciated.
    Glad to hear your grandmother is doing well, hope everything works out for you IRL.

  7. I am starting to fall in love with you..:)


  8. ya i know what you mean about the latency going home over the holidays means auctions take forever...

  9. You helped me make 20k just today alone!

    Keep up the good work on the blog.


  10. I just wanted to thank you for this amazing blog. You inspired myself to treat the ah more "serous". I made 12k in my first week. Keep up the good work,

    Greetings from Germany

  11. "What should my next goal be? " could try playing on a server with any sort of population. Based upon what I've read, you'd be eaten alive by the competition.

  13. Tella -- Core here. The glyph thing didn't work out for me too well. Decided to sell all my glyphs for 1g a piece to a friend of mine, who currently owns the market. I've been 100% relying on farmed eternal fire (from a couple people who owe me), I get 10 a day, and herbalism/alchemy for flasks for gold. I make about 2-3k a day. I'm looking into getting a new proff. What do you suggest? I have room for 3 more proffs. I have mining/enchanting/herbalism/alchemy. What should be my next priority.

    I'll probably get impatient and IM you :P
