Ironforge, Auction House - Success came at 24 Hours and 48 minutes of /played time. That's the time it took in /played time to reach 10,000 World of Warcraft gold coins from scratch with a new level 1 character. In terms of real-life time, it took about 17 days. The item that pushed me over the top was the Hanzo Sword, something that just didn't want to sell through the entire competition until it knew it would catch some of the limelight.
I intend to do a recap of the experience in a forthcoming post, plus I want to lay out the plan for the future of these 10,000 World of Warcraft Gold Challenge competitions.
