Have Blizzard lifted the Warcraft Gold Cap?
World of Warcraft Gold Cap was a traditional way of measuring gold gaming success in WoW. First set at 214,748g, then raised in Warcraft Patch 4.01 to 999,999g.
[update: Blizzard GM forgot to take his meds or something?]
According to a Blizzard GM, the Gold Cap has now raised to “unreachable level”.
I decided to move 985k across from my main to my bank char today, to store in my guild bank. I didn’t feel safe with it jiggling around in my pockets, and was worried I was so very near the cap that I might not be able to loot or pick up mail. I wanted to chat to Blizzard and make sure that if I tried to mail such a large figure across to the bank alt, then I wouldn’t be flagged as a gold seller. Â With nearly 1 years /played time on my main alone, I want to keep my account safe.
During the conversation, the GM told me that there was no longer a gold cap. With the gold cap removed and undocumented in a hotfix, it should be possible to own more than one million gold on one character.
With 975k in my bank as this is written (I invested in some very cheap ore and herbs) I can’t check if this is right. Is this an undocumented hotfix for Warcraft Patch 4.2.2? Â Or is it a mistake, and will it be a part of Patch 4.3 instead? Â Can any of my millionaire readers check for me and report back? I have 150 stacks of ore still left to prospect tonight *sigh*
