Big news: Patreon Launch, Alpha News, Gold Guide

Blog Update

Been a while since I wrote, so I wanted to check in with everyone, and share the news.

Bad news first.  My promise of entrance into the World of Warcraft: Legion Alpha back in January still hasn’t materialised, despite a reminder sent in February.  Since then, the employee making the offer has left Blizzard.  I’m not hopeful about reestablishing contact with Blizzard. Yeah. Bad news.

In better news, I’ve hit 32.5million gold made, with a lot of help from the garrisons and shipyards of my alts, a few high price sales, and many low price sales.  I’m considering making 50 million my goal before Legion.  As you know, going into previous expansions, I restarted from zero gold.

I had planned to livestream on twitch.tv a lot over Christmas and New Year 2015, however I didn’t expect depression to hit me quite so badly.  I’m still fighting it but feeling a lot better with the warmer weather.  Thank you for every single one of your warm wishes.  They keep me going on the difficult days.


The other reason that I have been fairly quiet on The Gold Queen blog recently was that I was putting a lot of effort into other projects.  I’ve had to do a lot of training, learning, and work behind-the-scenes.  You’ll see why later in this post!

Patreon Launch


I’m excited to let you know that The Gold Queen is now on Patreon.  This is like an on-going kickstarter.  You can listen to me explain more over at my patreon page.  

Patreons able to support me for over $5 per month will have access to a special area on the new website where I’ve collected all the things I create – the blog, podcasts, livestream, and so forth. Oh and they also get access to the Garrison Gold Guide.

Not only that, but Patreons who start to support me now will have access to the new Gold Guide that I’m building, while it is being built, so they can watch it go from empty, until it’s ready to launch.  Watch me build it from zero to launch.

New Gold Guide


About five people in the world knew that in 2011/12 I started writing a professional, paid-for, world of warcraft gold guide. A members website with video and pdf content.  As the year wore on and my hard drive crashed, my heating broke for weeks at a time, and with some other family pressures, I had to end my dream.

My dream woke up in 2016.

This year I would like to make what I have been building up for the last 7 years: my own professional Warcraft Gold Guide.


Here are some goals for it:

  • Actually helps you get rich.
  • Costs as low as possible.
  • Explains WHY to do things, so you can make informed choices.
  • Bring in my Business Degree expertise
  • Bring in my experience
  • Add in all the blog posts I’ve researched since 2010
  • And stir it all up and offer it to you in an easy to use video-and-pdf format.

This is my “life’s endeavour”


Working title “Legion Gold”


Where can you find me?

The blog will naturally be a little less active as I must put a lot of time into the new guide.  However, I will continue to post here! We have a new blog post lined up on Pandaria in the next few days.

Where can you find me while my blog is less active?

You can find me on twitter @thegoldqueen most of the day, and also quite a lot on Twitch.tv where I try and support the other gold makers who livestream.  I have the same name thegoldqueen there, so I’m easy to find.
