Question for Gold Capped:What do people do when they reach gold cap?It's not like there are oodles of stuff to do with all that gold.I understand the "winning" part of getting gold capped and the entire game played in the wow economy, but it'd be cool if you could do a Gold Capped / 5 minutes of Fame article on serious AH-ers.

There's a site that does that- wow econ I think. In any case, now that the cap has been raised to a million gold, I imagine a lot more people will be saving their money again to be able to say that they're gold capped again :)Personally, I plan on spending most of my money on buying raiding achievements and gear that's beyond the reach of someone with a 2 night a week schedule.

Thanks to this column, Insider Trader, reader comments/suggestions, and a big thanks to patch 4.0.1... I GCd last Saturday, 10/23! This was my pre-cata goal even before the change, and I was very excited to finally hit it.What is there to spend money on? Well, for me it's TCG mounts, some pets, and really, whatever catches my eye. But I'm still frugal, I won't pay more than I think something is worth.I do spend more time at the AH and with my professions than the average player, but I feel it's been worth it. Had I not taken the time to learn the ins and outs of the AH, I wouldn't be able to afford items like the Swift Spectral Tiger or Crimson Deathcharger when they show up for sale.

Grats Abbadon! Did you pre-4.0 cap or post?

It was post patch. I was about 2/3 there going into 4.0.1, but I went in prepared for the changes with more than 8k pre-made glyphs in the bank.;-)Had to dip into the savings a bit today, though... A guildie sold me a White Wooly Rhino at a very fair price. Thanks bud! I've been wanting this one for a while now.
