I started the expansion at about 80k. The last two months I have stopped trying for gold.
Similar Story here.
When MoP began, I remember mom and I talking about how we wanted to "save up for that yak" (meaning the 120k bling one). I don't remember exactly how much we had, but it was obviously less than 100k (I'm going to guess about 60k or so?) and we had about 80k or so in the Guild Bank (the two of us share a guild, nobody else).
Fast-Forward to now... I have about ~240k on both Alliance and Horde sides, she's pushing 330k and the Guildbank still hovers around 80k or so (because of repairs, esp with Timeless Isle lol).
We've not really cared about that stupid yak... maybe someday we'll do it. Maybe.
As for money, well. We don't actively try to get money, but sometimes we just get too much crap and we need to sell it off. Or we go out for other things and somehow end up with 500 gold here, 800 gold there effortlessly.
Earlier Today, we took a pair of our tailors to the Isle of Thunder, as we are going to start doing once a week for the Loot Scenario Keys.
Gold Ain't the reason, I can tell you that. No, we want Motes of Harmony; sometimes the Loot Scenario can give 3 spirits worth (that's 3 Imperial Silk off the cooldown). Of course, we wound up with like 600 gold in the process without even doing the dailies, lol.
This is why neither mom nor I can understand the people begging, and the people price-gouging at the AH. I mean, seriously? WTF are people going to do with all that freaking money? I found myself in possession of 20 extra
Magnificent Hides. I kept 60 on my character (that's 120 days worth of H.Mag Hides!), and decided to sell 20.
Went to the AH.
Asking Price is 200 Gold............PER HIDE.
These things are not hard by any means to get. Every day, we take one pair of our characters to the Timeless Isle, and just skinning Snakes, Yaks, and the occasional Turtles for the 20 Elite Daily gives us enough for ~2 mag hides without the cooldown (the one that takes 50 leather per).
After a week, I got nearly a stack and a half of mag hides worth of leather, without even trying, and people think that this is worth some 3-4k gold?
I just don't get it. I stuck em up for 175g each, well under the 200-250 everybody else wanted. If they sell at that, I would have made far more money than I really needed. In fact, I don't even need the **** gold. I just wanted to get something
out of them, as my Leatherworker has leather coming out of her ears.
Oh, and my Alliance gbank also has probably 5 stacks of Living Steel Bars that I don't know what to do with..... I'll use probably 2 stacks in the last 2 weapons + rascal-bot I need to make... after that....uh.... I dunno. Sell them probably.
Probably make several K off of them too. Yeesh.
