Well they took out the wealth tab on the website, but on my character's statistics tab it lists average gold earned per DAY at 313+, total gold looted 24k+, gold from quests is over 45k.Total deaths in raids and dungeons is 2.4k+. At 10g a death (that's at 85, so we are WILDLY overestimating, but still) that puts us at 24k+g in repairs.Which barely evens out to my total gold looted. THAT'S JUST THE LOOTED PART. That's not counting the 45k from quests. If you subtract my TOTAL gold acquired 324k+, minus my auction earnings (254K+), there is 75k remaining, close to my looted and quest gold together is.So by my characters stats, repairs eat up less than a 1/3rd of all my "created" gold.I could post the numbers for all of my many many alts, but they are all fairly comparable and fall within the same range. It leaves me with 45k to spend on mounts, skills, talent re-specs, and so on. Also, this only counts since Wrath, but I have been playing uninterrupted since Wrath, raiding everything throughout, so that counts all the painful learning of bosses, the 7 WEEKS worth of wipes on LK, and the months of blindingly frustrating cata dungeons and raids. Actually, when you stop to consider the lowered prices of mounts and riding speeds (one of the larger gold sinks in the game) it is entirely possible that Blizzard is intentionally de-valuing gold.So yeah, there is a way to prove that.
