Scheduled Livestream Tonight 6PM MST


Countdown Clocks

With the recent addition to our family we've found it a bit more difficult to carve out uninterupted time to do gold-making livestreams. With that in mind we've enlisted the help of our wonderful wife to take the baby for a few hours tonight to allow us to livestream.

At 6PM tonight (when this post is around 5 hours old) we will be livestreaming gold-making on our twitch channel.

We've added a countdown timer to this post (hat tip to Stede for the generator) so be sure to check back tonight and see when we'll be streaming.

Also, if you have any questions you'd like us to answer on the livestream please leave them in the comments below.

See you then!

Power Word: Gold Turns Three Years Old



If Power Word: Gold were a child it would be toddling around the auction house knocking over weapons racks and crawling on crates of Goblin Rocket Launchers. (We assume. We have no first hand knowledge of what a three year old does…yet.)

We've been writing Power Word: Gold for three years now. That's kinda crazy and kinda cool all at the same time. Read on past the jump for a look back and a look forward.

(On a side note, all episodes of The GLDMKR Podcast are recorded, edited, uploaded and posted from my iPhone.)

You can listen to episodes of The GLDMKR Podcast in the following ways:


Below are a few recent episodes to get you started:

WoW Auction Hunter by Brevisvox [Link]


Brevisvox writing in The Hatchery:

"As you can see in the chart, my total purchases were 1101g with AH fees totaling 436g for a total cost of 1537g.  My AH sales were 8001g with 46g from vendor sales for a total income of 8047g.  This experiment netted my 6510g profit for very little effort."

Read the full post "WoW Auction Hunter by Brevisvox" on The Hatchery.

(If you'd like your own original gold-making writing to appear on The Hatchery simply email the post, title, images and your name/pseudonym to powerwordgold@yahoo.com with the word "Hatchery" as part of the subject line and we'll get it posted.)
