5000g is perfectly and easily attainable before level 80. I had epic flying in my early/mid 70s while I was still working on Loremaster for Outlands. I hadn't even touched Northrend quests at all. I didn't farm stuff to sell. I did the quests, I always got the items from quest rewards that sold to vendor for the most if I wasn't going to use them, and I auctioned like mad. Yes. That's right. I said the dirty word. AH.Why are so many people afraid to use the AH? I've had over 80k gold on my main, and a full half of that is from the auction house. If it's green, blue, or anything remotely usable by a crafting profession, auction it. Maybe if people stopped being lazy and did that instead of vending stuff, they'd have more gold flying around. I popped to Northrend when I finished Northrend, dinged 77 not terribly long after, and by the time I did that I had another 1k gold. From auctions. And no, I don't spend all day on the AH price comparing and reselling. I simply sell what I get as loot. I loot everything. I vend what I can't auction.If you take the absolute fastest path to level 80, meaning you skip a ton of the content in the process, this is what happens. It's a trade-off. You can level somewhat more slowly, solo, and easily attain the gold required for those skills relatively quickly. Or you can plow to 80 as fast as possible, and get there without the gold to even fly around Northrend. I don't mean to be harsh, but I've watched a good chunk of my guild sit in this boat, and it's frustrating.
