Last Sunday vs. Today
Week 4 roughly 7k gold in one week! Wait, 22 minus 16 isn’t 7 Ky! Oh yeah, I broke and spent 1k for dual specs. Wanted to try Unholy since everyone says it’s so much more fun than Blood, but I wanted to keep Blood in case it didn’t work as good for me. So overall still respectable but not as good as last week. Why the change? A couple of reasons, I think.
First, competition increased. I noticed my competition logging in more than before. One level 1 alt actually moved his toon from Ironforge to Stormwind this week to avoid running into me. I’m guessing he thought maybe I wouldn’t see him that way. Too bad you can’t block friend’s lists. 🙂 And both he and another competitor go AFK in the AH alot when I’m on. Also I’ve noticed another name posting a lot more glyphs than previously.
But I don’t really think that was the major thing that did it. To be honest, the second thing is a slight case of burnout. I started really getting into this project and wanted to see how far I could get and initially I was pushing to go to the end of the month as hard as I could to see how much gold I could get, but then I realized that’s not really the point of the experiment either. So I skipped a couple of updates before going to bed and skipped several auction updates during the day. I’ve usually updated 3-4 times a day, but this last week was mostly 1-2.
So since I started 3.5 weeks ago, remember my first week was a half week, I’ve gone from 400 gold to 22000 gold. I think my experiment was a raging success! And I’ve proved we can all do it if we want. At 7k a week I think that’ll cover more than enough expenses for whatever we’re doing.
So with that said, I’m transferring some gold to Erdkrieg and buying epic flying. 😀
