On November 11th, 2009 I posted that I had just reached 100,000g. At the time I did say I wasn’t sure if I would keep pushing and go for the gold cap. I kind of took it easy and wouldn’t you know it, slowly but surely my gold continued to go up. By the time I reached closer to 200k I figured well why the heck why not? Today I reached the gold cap which is a grand total of 214,748g 36s 46c Whoo! For those wondering, once you hit the cap, you can continue looting gold but you wont actually gain anymore gold. It just stays static at the cap amount.
So at the time when I reached 100,000g, I had done it at a rate of about 367g per day. At the time I had made this calculation:
Finally, if I did decide to try and hit the cap, using the rate at which I earn gold (367g per day) it would take… *drumroll* another 312 days played… Probably not a good idea
Granted this included Vanilla/TBC time and the gold earning potential was not as high. But the interesting thing is going from 100,000g to 214,748g (gold cap), I averaged 2049g over the 56 days since reaching 100k. That’s a pretty sick (and depressing) statistic. Don’t know how that worked but there you have it. Guess it didn’t take 312 days as I predicted but its still a pretty cool feat to achieve. Perhaps Blizzard (if you’re reading) you could create a FOS for this? *nudge nudge*.
