Holding on to Your Gold for World of Warcraft New Players
By Hunter Sear
If you are saving for a large purchase in World of Warcraft Gold, then you will want to avoid impulse buying in the Auction House (AH).
What is impulse buying? It is easy to allow that huge pile of WoW gold to burn a hole in your virtual pockets. Since your character cannot really bank the gold, it is always with them, tempting you to spend. When you see thousands of gold right there as you find that perfect new weapon or other fun item in the AH, you might be tempted just to start spending. That is impulse buying. Like real life at the candy shelves in the grocery store checkout line, you must resist!
I suggest always having a bank “Alt.” An “Alt” is an “alternate character” that does not do much adventuring but rather stays near the bank and mailbox in a home city. Make it a habit to send your extra piles of gold to this character on your account. That way, when the urge hits your Main character to just spend on the latest gadget rather than saving for the one purchase you most truly want, you will not have easy access to the money.
I know you can just log off, relog on the Alt character, send the money to your Main, log off the Alt and log back on the Main. Hopefully, having your money only accessible through this long process will quench the fire of the impulse purchase burning in your mind.
For an even more effective, slow down of your impulse spending of gold, try having a second game account to hold your gold. There is an hour or so delay between the sending and receiving of mail and money when using two accounts. Maybe this will help you stop your impulse buying even further.
Make smart decisions about your World of Warcraft gold! You are going to love the rewards of buying the Uber gear you really want rather than dwindling away your gold on small purchases.
