I dove headfirst into farming and crafting. There's been a lot of fluctuation in the market, a lot of competition, and a lot of farming. Going into it I refused to buy cheap ore or buy anything off the AH. I'm completely against botting, and I wanted to make sure I was in no way contributing to that. It may not have been the quickest way to make gold, but it made me feel incredibly good.
After 3 and a half months, I accomplished my goal. 80k to 1 million. I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I know that the possibilities for what I can do are open, and that's really comforting! Who knows, I might buy a pony after all.
While I swore I'd slow down after it, I'm not sure I want to. It's almost a habit now, and with so much down time before WoD it seems like a really good idea to farm now so I don't have to worry about anything for a long time. Who knows!
