This question came to me as we were discussing the new spec changing mechanic and pricing on the Queue one day. I’m not going to get into the politics of that whole issue, save for the pricing: 16, 24, 32, 64*. That all seems fair, as far as gold goes. Even if you are a prolific spec-swapper, you should be able to make gold to cover it, and then some. Just how much gold do you make per hour?
This is what I want to know (for those of you in Legion Beta!).
After 50 minutes of upper tempo questing in Talador, I ended up with 640g, (started with 10g) for a net amount of 630g. Not too bad for an hour of questing. I did seem to get a lot of weapon drops though. Not sure what that will be like in Legion. Even if you go slow, and there aren’t as many drops, I think it’s reasonable to expect between 300-500g per hour of questing. That’s a pretty good chunk of change.
So how much do you make now? Do you keep track? If so, do you feel you are making enough gold from questing? Feel free to let me know in the comments down under!
*since initially writing this, the costs have been reversed. Still brought up a good question going forward!
