My first amazing moment was when I was lvl 4. I was playing for the first time, questing in Teldrassil with my Nelf druid when a lvl 50+ whispered me and asked if I could sign his chart. Chart? What is a chart? Well, he would give me 1 gold if I signed it and WOW was I amazed. ONE GOLD? Just for me? I could not believe someone would just give me an entire gold. I was so happy that evening after recieving my fortune. Now I was rich. We spend thousands of gold on gear, enhanting, gemming and we forget how amazing it was in the beginning after getting just a little bit of cash. ; )

I remember things like that as well."10 gold?!? No sir, you really dont have to but since you insist, Thank you!!!"/buying all vendor lowby gear and thinking i was the cats pajamas.

Indeed, I remember when 100g was Wealth Beyond Imagining.

Corollary to getting your 1st gold was getting your epic mount in vanillaWhen it was 1000g before rep discount (which capped at 10% at honored)I remember what an achievement that was for me cos I was a holy priest that was trying to get enough gold by grinding non elite mobs and mining to get my gold. Also remembered the WoW-ishness of it all when I completed my priest's dungeon set 1 (I was lucky to get the helm from Father Flame on my first and only attempt at it)

I remember reading a thread a while ago with one dude gloating how he'd made 10g on the auctionhouse with enchanting and no-one believed him. Lies! Sheer embellishment! they shouted. Imagine being told 19,000 for a mammoth in the vanilla. Preposterous.
