I decided to treat myself.

I recently wrote about my daily gold making routine. People make gold in Wow for various reasons and there are different types of players who make gold. 

I started making gold out of necessity when I wanted to complete the Insane in the Membrane feat of strength. After I got my title I continued to play the auction house because I enjoyed it. I enjoyed sitting on a pile of gold knowing I could buy anything I wanted. I treated friends and my other half to presents over the years. I gave away six Vial of the Sands, I've paid around two-three hundred thousand gold for my boyfriend to gear up multiple characters. I've given away several Mechano hogs because while it's nice to look at that sexy total of gold it's nicer to make friends smile.

This week however I decided to treat myself to something I've wanted for as long as I can remember. I knew at some point I'd buy one I had just never gotten around to it until now. With Mists of Pandaria introducing account wide mounts and the fact that characters will be grounded until level 90 I figured now was the ideal time to pick one up. I think I deserved it. 

While the epic was only a little bit extra I don't like the leg armour on it. So I went for the normal version. 
LJFDJALKFJAFJLS!!1 I can't tell you how much I love this mount.

If you're a gold maker have you ever bought anything you really wanted in Wow? Do you prefer to hold onto your gold instead? Even if you're not a gold maker what would you love to be able to buy yourself?


  1. I splurged on my Jaina's Locket. I wanted a little piece of one of the best romance stories in the world of Azeroth. I feel for Jaina, who yearned for her prince even when she knew he was lost. She still hoped there was a shred of humanity left.

    I also am saving up for a future spectral tiger :)

    1. I would love to get a Syvanas' music box some day but I can't remember the last time I actually saw one. Just to have it, y'know. I'm a bit of Sylvanas fan girl sometimes.

  2. Congratulations!

    Every time I come close to buying a ridiculously expensive item for myself, I somehow end up buying it for someone else instead. That, and I had this silly idea in my head that I should make my own Vial of the Sands, but alas. RNG was never kind enough to give me the recipe before I went insane from far too many months lost on archaeology :)

    1. Oh god, yeah I was determined to get the Vial recipe myself too. I dig around for it from time to time still with no luck. I had to eventually give up on the idea =P Maybe some day.. some day.
