So, using the Brutosaur calculator, and going for the default date of "1 October". I see that I have to gather just short of 40k each day up until 1 October.
So far I've been farming mats, and I've tried out the "super tidespray linen bracer shuffle".
Any form of gathering gold so far has not even come close to reaching 40k/day.
I'm currently sitting around 8k profit per day (4hrs of play). With these numbers, I should just be doing WQ's and it would go even faster...
So, I'm making this post to help some other people that are only now jumping to the idea that they want to start farming the gold and haven't had the realisation that 5 million gold is not just a big number, it's a ridiculous number.
But also trying to share what I've learned:
Seems like there are only 3 ways to reach this gold if you are starting out on nearly nothing.
- Farm it
- Make profit flipping things
- Buy tokens
A combination of these 3 things is most likely how you're getting there.
Remember that farming it will need you to reach the "x thousand gold per day" requirement.
So what's left if 4hrs a day isn't a realistic option for you?
Buying tokens, which isn't really a way to "make gold" it's just bypassing everything and failing.
Flipping on the AH is where you're going to be untethered by a max amount of gold per hour.
Like I said, I'm only new myself and I made this post to help other new people save some time researching and building up to a farming method only to THEN realize that they have to commit to that farm for 2-6 hours EACH DAY for 3+ months.
I'd say, get yourself some money farming gold, and turn towards flipping large amounts or you will not make 5 million gold without buying tokens unless you're willing to nolife it.
Please someone tell me I'm wrong and there's a better way? Because flipping is not a guaranteed success.
