Like all some self-respecting WoW players, it is an ambition of mine to have gold. It’s the lifeforce in a game where moneys can do a great deal of things.
Some people find that it’s hard to get, and scrounge with dailies all day to get it. Others say it’s very simple… so long as you have some know-how and some gold to begin with.
Those people, the ones that say that gold is easy to make, are the same people that play the auction house. The auction house, a market for business people and noobs alike, is a strange and confusing place for the beginner.
I have been convinced that the only way I am going to get a decent amount of gold is through the auction house, and it’s my goal to make more money than I can possibly spend if possible. This would be hard for me though, seeing as I have Mining(good profession for money) and Engineering(terrible for making money). So, I decided it was time to add someone to my crew.
Everyone, meet Eyolus.
All told, Eyolus is a bank alt; he carries extra stuff I can’t, and then auctions it off for money I can send to myself at will. However, he’s an extra important bank alt; he will be the one playing the auction house. This game within a game will see Eyolus rise as one of my most played characters, and he might as well be my money main.
So far, I’m going tailoring as a profession for sure. His secondary profession, however, is up for grabs! Enchanting? Jewelcrafting? Inscription? Who knows! I’m leaning towards jewelcrafting so far, however. We’ll have to see.
