I've never played the AH, yet I've bought epic flight on 6 characters, portable holes, mammoths, choppers, and ridiculous vanity pets. I bought my wife the traveler's mammoth as a present for her finishing Loremaster. I don't know where some people spend all their gold, honestly. I raided for my Uld10 drake and did the Long Strange Trip on 2 characters, not even knowing that I'd be saving 15k down the road.I made a few thousand doing the dailies for Quel'Danas to hit exalted. A few thousand more doing Argent Tournament dailies. My only "secret" is being self-sufficient. I never throw anything away. As a result I have bank toons that are full of leather, metals, herbs, gems, cloth, and meat. When I wanted to level up a new character, I took a gathering skill for something I was lacking and a crafting skill for something I could use that I'd been banking. I've leveled 2 engineers, a JC, leatherworker, a blacksmith, and an alchemist and probably only spent a couple of hundred gold for the occasional missing rare component for crafting. My paladin wants to raid? My druid makes the flasks. I got a new belt for my shaman? My paladin makes the buckle. Need to enchant and glyph? Death Knight at your service. Gem time? Priest is ready to go. I'm not in the six digit range, but I'm close.Then again, my server's economy is wholly screwed. A few ambitious businessleeches have skillfully cornered several key markets to the point where their very name in trade chat begins an hour of screaming hatred. I've even gone to the effort of farming Deadmines then hanging out in Westfall and selling items directly to the people in the zone who are level appropriate at prices that are at or barely above vendor value.
