Thinking back to day 2, did you ever reach your goal or are you still working towards it? If you reached it - have you set yourself a new one?
In my Day 2 post I spoke about how I've never had a goal in terms of wanting x amount of money. Instead my goals have been to acquire an in game item for which I've needed a lot of gold to puchase. I gave two mounts as examples - the Sandstone Drake and Mekgineer's Chopper.
As you can see from the screenshot of my achievement window above I did manage to acquire both mounts.
I got the Sandstone Drake on 17/08/12 and I remember it very clearly. My boyfriend was browsing the auction house when he spotted two Vial of Sands for a cheap price. I can't remember the exact price but I think it was around 17k gold. At the time I only had 15k so he gave me the extra to buy it.
I got my own Chopper much later on 24/11/12. This was in part because I sold the first one that I made. The materials to make the Chopper are quite expensive and they always seemed to sell well on my server. So, I decided to try and sell mine with the aim of making 50% profit. The best part being that I did meaning my own chopper was effectively half price. You can't beat a bargain like that!
Since getting these two mounts I haven't really set myself any official goals. My unofficial goal is to have enough money for my hunter to purchase faction mounts/pets as she gets to the approproate reputation standing with them.
As you can see in the screenshot above my I've got a fair bit of gold in my guild vault / spread across my characters - just over 30k. So, getting the faction mounts/pets shouldn't be a problem.
I have therefore decided to set myself a monetary goal! In a few weeks it's my 1-year-of-playing-WoW-iversary and I'm really happy with myself for hitting the 30k mark and for getting the mounts/pets I want thus far.
So, my goal is to have 50k in 6-months time (by mid-end June 2013).
