7 Gold in an Hour is Bad?

I find it interesting that you do not get all of your gold in one shot when pulling from the trading post. If you have so many items coming in that they can't all fit on the screen, then gold will also be withheld until you start emptying your trading post. My theory is that you can only have a certain number of sales waiting to be picked up at a time, or they count as individual items like anything else. Regardless, it's a good problem to have!

Today I made 7 gold after posting auctions for an hour. I had won so many yesterday that it took 4 gold in investments just to pay for the listing fees. So to only make back 7 gold in the next hour seems pretty crappy huh?

What if I told you that tomorrow I'll likely wake up to another 25+ gold? Is the time worth the effort? Absolutely! And I only spent about an hour the night before posting buy orders. So two hours of effort total. But here's the real question: are you willing to put that kind of time in?

The point of today's post is to bring up two things: consistency and experience. If you want to get good at something, then you must be willing to consistently put effort into building up your experience with the subject at hand. In addition to these two things, you need to be able to stop yourself and say "Hey, maybe there is a better way to do this."

If you're struggling, keep your chin up and try to learn from your experiences. But most importantly, don't give up and don't cancel auctions unless they run for over a week. I made 7 gold in an hour and the rest will likely sell before 24 hours later. If I cancel now and relist then I cut my profits each time!

    Hey Markco
    That's a good question: "are you willing to put that kind of time in?" In my case (and I guess in quite a few other people's) the answer to whether I'm willing to put two hours into playing the TP is "No' :)

    For me, two hours is a good play session in a day, and I'd be in danger of spending more time on the TP than playing the game.

    So, my question to you is: was the 25G a result of the time put in, the investment (more in = more out), or a combination of the two. It would be interesting is there's any point trying to make some (reasonable) money in the game without having two hours a day to invest.
