The Gold Cap Challenge: Introduction

I recently finished my Zero to One Million gold challenge, so it’s time to start another one. My Zero to One Million challenge restricted me to one character from scratch to prove to myself that my methods work. My new challenge will continue on the same realm. The rules will change however. My goal is to go for gold cap, which is 10 million gold. I will use all the tools at my disposal to do so.

The rules

  • Same realm as Zero to One Million
  • No transfered battlepets
  • No transfered gold
  • Get to gold cap

Status today

Since I hit one million gold I have spent a ton of gold on my challenge realm. I bought a lot of Spirits of Harmony for flipping purposes. In addition I found a Mimiron’s head on the Black Market Auction House that I purchased for 611 000 gold. I have also leveled a Demon Hunter to lvl 100.


Warrior, 110

My warrior has enchanting and jewelcrafting and has been the main character throughout the Zero to One Million Challenge. It used to be my main auction house poster, but it is about to be relieved.

Demon Hunter, 110

Since I finished the zero to one million challenge I have been leveling a Demon Hunter to get access to alchemy and the leatherworking shuffle. This will be very useful once Antorus drops. I have 3/4 rank 3 flask recipes already, and I’m working on the rank 3 potion recipes.

Banker, 1

My new bank alt is sitting on my other WoW account. It has about 140 00 gold at the moment after I spent so much gold. The Auction house Value is about 2.9 million gold.

Let the games begin

I will be tracking statistics very similarly to how I did it during my Zero to One Million Challenge. I will be prioritizing this as much as possible, so hopefully we can make it in a decent time frame. For /played I will only use the time accrued on my warrior and demon hunter. This gives an impression of how much active gameplay time I am spending. For the total gold acquired and spent I will reset it as I am starting on a fresh banking character.


  • /played since last update: n/a
  • /played total: 6 days 11 hours
  • Total gold:  140 212 gold
  • Total AH value: 2 510 431 gold
  • Total gold Acquired: 0 gold
  • Total gold spent: 0 gold



My current inventory is dominated by BoEs and materials from the Spirit of Harmony Vendor. I am still sitting on a bunch of ore, Spirits, and golden lotuses. I am looking into finding ways to unload it faster. Now that I have alchemy leveled I will be looking into crafting the Jewelcrafting panthers as I can likely source the gems cheap enough that it is worth it now.
