Breakfast Topic: What are you doing with all that gold?
So, now that the Daily quest limit is up to 25 and we have a whole ton of new quests to do courtesy of the Sunwell dailies, a lot of us are starting to build up quite a large bankroll. In addition to the monetary rewards, we're getting tons of green items (that disenchant into very lucrative things such as Greater Planar Essences and Large Prismatic Shards), a good selection of Sunfury Signets and tons of Arcane Tomes from all the Blood Elves we're fighting. All those green gems I've hoarded over the months are finally paying off for me, since my Jewelcrafting mule is able to turn them into Brilliant Glass, and I've even had a blue recipe or two drop that's sold for a pretty penny.

As a result, I've jumped up from about 1000 gold between all my characters to about 6000 gold between them now, and no sign of the cash flow stopping. The problem comes when I try to figure out what to do with it all. 2 of my 3 70s already have epic flight, and I'm considering buying it for the third as well, but I'm sitting on the gold for a few days to make sure I don't make an impulse purchase. In addition, I'll probably be feeding a few thousand to the statue building fund in order to get a nice new title.

Then again, I'm not sure if "Of the Shattered Sun" really suits me as a title, so I may just pass and save the gold. After all, if I save up a good amount of gold for Wrath of the Lich King, I'll be able to get my Death Knight off to a really nice start and have enough to buy some of the new level 68-70 greens that ought to be rolling out of the first few zones.

Have you started building a massive war chest since 2.4? If so, what are your plans for all that gold?
