I'd posit that most people spend gold in game like they spend money in real life - spend more than they earn. Fortunately you can't spend more than you earn in game so never go into debt but they never build up wealth (in this case 10k spending money) either.Great post oh in-game money guru.

My ingame spending is different than my real life spending. I spend money more freely in real life. I'm incredibly frugal in WoW. I have plenty of gold and no particular goal of how to spend it. I have 2 miners, an alchemist, and a jewelcrafter. I can't bring myself to put red gems into my alt's gear. I already own the gems - so it is losing potential profit vs actively spending money. But my inner penny pincher keeps piping up "This toon only does LFR; does she really need that extra 20 intellect when you could make 400g selling it?" So purple and orange it is!

See, I'm the exact opposite. I'm quite money conscious in real life, but in game I spend like it's going out of business. "Oh, there's a vial of the sands on for 5k cheaper than what I usually see it listed. I guess my 4th 85 could have it".Buy out. Learn. Ta-dah!WoW gold is easy to make and I have no reason to save.

I'm with Tanddori, I splurge the cash in-game but in real-life I'm quite a bit more careful!My weakness is for Blacksmithing plans, I just gotta have 'em all and if they cost 5k, 10k, 20k then so be it.

Yea. Frugal in-game because of the loss of potential profit over enchanting an alts gear.Always gets me.

I need an in-game credit card.

There's only one thing I'd deem worth it to splurge on: Vial of the SandsCommon, it turns you into a dragon people !AND you can carry someone !In my book, this beats any piece of BoE gear.The only question is, will it be for:- my Druid (can already become a flying creature, but shapeshifting = for druids !!)- my DK (wants to shapeshift too !! and is my currently most played char this xpack, but it seems out of place for a creature of undeath to become a dragon...)But that'll be a conflict of luxury to settle :-)
