The Daily Grind: What would you do in your MMO if you were suddenly uber wealthy?

Holy moly.

Today’s Daily Grind is inspired by a Reddit thread posed to Guild Wars 2 players asking them what they’d do if they suddenly had 3,000 gold (a very large sum there) to play with. I thought the question was a great one even beyond the walls of Guild Wars 2 because the economy sub-game is such a big component of MMORPGs, even those that traditionally just let their economies go wild.

Personally, I tend to use currency rather than achievements or gear as the mark of my success in a game, so I work hard to accrue it. Having a big pile of money is one of the things that keeps me coming back to an MMO, too. How I spend it tends to revolve around the game, but usually it’s tricked out gear and skins, followed by “rares” like ships and home decorations. I’ve also spent a tremendous amount of my money on my guild, particularly twinking people to get them to play something with me, and I like dropping donations on friendly newbies or server-wide causes and events.

So let’s suppose you suddenly come into a ton of money in your favorite MMORPG — what would you do with it? And if you’re already Scrooge McDuck in everything you play, what do you spend your cash on?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
