Gold Goal: Week 12

Looks like it's been nearly 12 weeks since I decided I wanted to hit the gold cap, and I'm around halfway there. Compared to others, I seem to be fairly slow at making my way up the gold mountain, but that probably just means I need to take some time to figure out what I'm doing right - and what I can do better.

The inscription market was previously my biggest earner, but lately a slew of new auctioneers have slaughtered the market faster than I could manage to fix it, and it's now become a weaker backbone for my auctions.

I need to invest more, and do so more confidently. Part of my problem is that the only things I do solidly are inscription, restocking my glyphs every few hours, and my daily epic gem xmutes - all 5 of them. I need to expand my library of epic gem cuts, level my next two alchemists, and a whole slew of other things.

Right now, Cataclysm is looming on the horizon, and I feel I need to get my ducks in a row for that - collect BoEs on my second account for my blood elf warrior (JC/Alchemist) and my goblin warlock (??/Alchemist) as well as the materials I'll need to power level their professions.

I'm being set back with my gold goal, however, as my WoW decided to begin crapping itself and crashing every time I loaded Dalaran and Icecrown. Repair utility came to my rescue, and it repaired WoW... and then started downloading all of the patches from 3.2 on! Bad words go here!!
