Note the screwy number for total gold. This has to do with the way the game stores certain data. There is an absolute gold cap of 214,748 Gold 36 Silver and 46 Copper. You cannot exceed that number on your character, you will just get a warning message along the lines of "Gold limit reached..."
Hovever, the stats page has no such protective limit. Exceed that cap and you get a screwy number like you see in the pic. So yeah, I've earned over 214,748 Gold 36 Silver and 46 Copper with this character since mid October, when the pre-Wrath 3.0 patch was released.
I probably spend 2-3 hours a day on this, sometimes a bit more when making glyphs or taking care of inventory.
- the number of auctions
- the gold earned per day (best is just over 6k in one day)
- and the fact that I've spent more on postage than on vendor sales.
- There's more stuff stored in a private guild bank.
The basic routine is that I make the glyphs on my level 80 and mail them to the banker for sale on the AH.
Update June '09: I got bored and slowed way down. Gold total is around 250k, spread over four characters. About 205k on this one.
