Yep, and here's why.
I was happily crafting tons of upgrades for my crafted gear. Getting lots of mats using Primal Spirits and the base mats. Then it hit me. The lack of Sorcerous (Fire/Earth/Air/Water) is going to gate this heavily. I'm down to less than 30 of each, so I can't craft any more upgrades. I still have 40 more to go.
Where else can you get them? Primal Spirits. But it's 25 for one of them. That's a horrible conversion rate. And there's always the AH of course. But that would eat into getting to 1M gold. So, here's the plan. Get to 1M gold, then use extra gold after that to buy Sorecerous, and WoW Tokens.
What have I mostly been up to this week. Well, gearing up characters, getting achievements, and making gold.
For gearing up, the Muradin quest has been great. I'm making sure to run Walled City on all my lower geared characters when they get him, and even asked in Trade and went to get him from another Garrison. Here's Boomy about to kill Vulgor.

For achievements, a few things. I continued exploring, finishing off Eastern Kingdoms, and getting into Kalimdor. I tried Ulduar 25N, but failed miserably on Flame Leviathan. I don't know what I was doing wrong, but gave up really frustrated after a couple of miserable attempts. I guess I need to go look it up on wowhead or something. I didn't have a problem in 10H. Another thing was doing the quest to get one Battle Pet to 25. This netted 3 Achievements :)
For gold, I've been selling tons of mats, and trying to sell some gear too. I made a bit of mistake trying to become the monopolist on Raw Beast Hide, as people were driving down the price to about 1g50s. So, I bought up all lower than my 2g50s and reposted all at that price. Hardly any sold, and more people were putting up lower than 2g. Bought up again, and reposted, and eventually gave up. Banked most of it, but did manage to sell some of it later in the week for 2g each.
Here's a look at Achievements and my current Gold. 1M could be coming this week :)
