|Where did you get your gold from?||June-19-2013 10:59 AM PDT (8 years ago)|
|When I started playing Hardcore, I decided that I wasn't going to trade over any gold from Softcore. This was mostly because I had spent money on the Real Money Auction House in Softcore, and I felt it detracted from my sense of character progression. I wanted to see how it felt building a character from scratch. Besides, by selling items that I'd bought with real money for gold and then trading that gold over to Hardcore, I would basically be gambling with real money, which is not something I want to get involved with.|
Besides the gold I've picked up from farming and vendoring, I've had three major sources of income that I've used to gear my current Hardcore Barb:
1) Received about 1mil from my friend v1R, just as I was starting Inferno.
2) Won a 25 million giveaway from KillerElite.
3) Found a nice pair of Rare shoulders that sold for 50 million.
I guess I should also give a shout-out to MrDeAth, who donated some decent starter pieces to me before I even got to Inferno. Thanks again, MrDeAth!
What about you guys? Where did you get your gold?
Did you trade over hard-earned SC gold to help yourself get started?
Are you a flipping machine on the Auction House?
Did you win a giveaway, or get an epic item drop?
Or did you just grind your pants off?
Share your story of gold-collecting with me!
NOTE: This thread is not the place to insult flippers or people who trade SC gold. If you don't have something constructive to say, don't say it at all.

|I never had a lot of gold in HC, but most of my funds came early on from selling a nice Unity that enabled a few upgrades to my Witch Doctor. The remainder of that gold is just sitting in my bank, though, since I swapped to self found. I tend to avoid flipping (even when I'm on a character that uses the auction house), because I prefer the kind of progression that stems from grinding upgrades.|

How many self-found characters do you have, and how many use the auction house?
I have three self found characters. One is a SC DH, but is using an "account found" style. I don't know if that counts. The main character I'm focusing on now is a purely self found HC Barbarian who mostly plays solo. I'm still pretty low level (Act III Normal), but I've been strict with ensuring he doesn't use ill-begotten items or gold. The rest of my characters all use the gold auction house.
