A few days ago I finally passed the "Gold Cap". Back in September I had less than 50K. Today I have over 218K.
So what the hell does all this mean? Nothing really. It's actually very anticlimactic. In fact I didn't really try hard to make gold recently. Thanks to my OCD I feel compelled to do my daily Auction House business so this allowed me to make at least 1K a day without trying too hard. In all, I probably spend about 30 minutes daily managing crafting, searching the AH, buying cheap mats, posting and emptying the mailbox. That's too much time if you ask me.
Now, all this gold is spread across several different characters, with my bank alts having most of it. In reality I only reached the psychological gold cap, meaning the limit for a single character, so I could potentially reach multiple "gold caps" in the future on each character. I won't make a conscious effort though.
Another issue is what am I going to do with all this gold? I've been thinking hard about this and I can't find a good answer. At least there shouldn't be anything that I could want for in World of Warcraft. On the other hand I'm not gonna spend tons of cash on crap. I'm so tight-fisted that I won't even get my alts epic mounts. But that's a topic for another occasion.
One thing that I will probably do is slowly buy the remaining vanity pets that I need for my hunter, you know, the expensive ones.
My big plan is to keep over 200K gold until Cataclysm hits. There's no knowing what cool money sinks Blizzard will add, so I want to be prepared.
Now don't hate on me for being rich in WoW. I'm poor in real life so it compensates.
