Making gold for achievements.

Yesterday, I realised I needed around 60 thousand gold to buy all of the items required for my achievements. This means things like a Mechanohog (12,500+) and a mammoth (15,000 or so).

In addition to all of this, I need to pick up huge numbers of sunfury signets and other items that I really don't want to have to farm. I also want to dump mining for jewelcrafting since the stat bonuses ar emuch better.

Finally, when cataclysm comes out, I want to hit the profession caps as soon as possible. In short: I'm tired of being concerned about gold.

So, as part of this project, I'm going to pick up at least 100,000g before the end of the year.

Here are my current resources: I have about 650g in the bank and a few hundred gold in auctions. I have 450 enchanting and 450 mining. I have solid PVP and PVE egar sets. That's about it.

I'm going to go through all my bags and my bank and sell off everything that I don't need and then I'll get started on my plan.

Mostly, I think I need the following:

1. I need to set up Postal, Auctioneer and Quick Auctions 2. I plan on making my gold from the AH and to do this, I need to be able to work efficiently. As a software developer in real life, I always like to make the computer do the work, so I don't have to.

2. I need an alliance AH mule and a Horde AH mule, plus some easy ways to move items between characters. Since you can't buy your own auctions, I'll need to ask my wife to do the alliance side until I can get set up with a second account.

3. I need some data. I think I have a good idea of the markets and how they work but I'll need to do more research. One thing I noticed when going for the "75 Pets" achievements is that people are happy to pay insane markups for pets so they don't have to get them themselves.

4. I need markets. For now, I want to be in the enchanting scrolls market since very few people seem to post these regularly for some weird reason, and there is great profit to be made right now. I also plan on dealing with pets. Eventually, I'll level Jewelcrafting and get into the whole prospect->craft->disenchant->make scrolls cycle.

I'll get this stuff set up tonight and I'll post today or tomorrow on how it all goes.
