About Me

Who Am I?

My name is Graham, I’ve been married for 18 years (June 2002), and I’m a full-time househusband to my wife Sharna and father to 3 daughters, one of which I care for full-time, due to type 1 diabetes. If you’ve followed me for some time, you’ll be aware that our family had a significant scare almost two years ago, when at the ripe age of 38, my wife suffered two heart-attacks. This event understandably put World of Warcraft and all my other hobbies on the back burner. But I’m thankful to say that as things start improving for Sharna, that hobbies and interests are back and back with a vengeance.

My other hobbies include Football (I support Man Utd), Online Poker, and I also play English 8-ball pool competitively for my local Pool team. I have an interest in drawing and writing. I have colorblindness which limited my ability and progress, thus forcing me to give up. Thankfully I use my interest in writing to express my journey through World of Warcraft with this blog. My eldest daughter Isabella has carried the torch for drawing and has helped me design my artwork for my website.

Who am I in-game?

My main character is called Grahran. I created the name by a mixture of my first name and surname, and he plays on Horde (EU). I have played him since the pre-patch of Cataclysm. My first ever character Graran was a Feral Druid, he played on Neptulon, but I no longer have him!

Gold-Making in World of Warcraft:

My main success within World of Warcraft mainly stems from Gold-Making. My past goals amounted to 1m gold in Warlords of Draenor (WoD) before the Gold Cap increase in Legion. I generated 5m gold on all characters on the Legion release, thanks to the Legion BoE market, which I shared with readers here. Before taking a forced break (as mentioned above) from the game, I surpassed 100m gold on all my characters in 2017. Sadly, my balance declined, thanks to gold and inventory expiring in the mail during my two-month break from the game. However, on my return, I have approximately 23.7m gold – which I think shows how much I’ve had to outlay to get going again. The outlay includes rebuilding my inventory, purchasing 6-month game-time, and Shadowlands expansions for all eight accounts and, of course, my Brutosaur Mount.

Past Warcraft Experiences:

I used to raid for a Guild called Influx – Neptulon Horde (EU), and sadly, on the release of WoD, the Guild transferred to Draenor Horde (EU) changed the name to Sanction. We were a casual raiding guild, raiding three nights a week for 2-3 hours per raid. Towards the end of WoD, I decided to stop raiding due to time constraints and struggling to socialize on Teamspeak. I’m grateful for the time spent, as I made some great friends along the journey, thankfully, many I still keep in touch with today.

Current and Future Goals:

As I mentioned previously, I enjoy writing about my gold-making journey within World of Warcraft and, importantly, sharing advice that I feel may help others in-game. I don’t have any interest in streaming or creating Youtube videos due to social anxiety. Blogging and creating content for this website is likely the only way I’ll express myself. I hope to have plenty of guides and advice as we get accustomed to Shadowlands. I managed to get access to BETA, but time wasn’t on my side.

  1. Hi, I have just discovered you blog! It i a great resource. I too am on EU Emerald Dream. My son (he’s 38yrs) finally persuaded me to get into WoW in patch 5.3. Been a gamer for nearly 50 years, on and off.
    Started with Advanced D&D on a table with just some friends and multi-sided dice.
    My age, 63, means that really my endgame is LFR. So I started gold making now an addict. I set my target for Legion to get 10 million, which I have now achieved. So I am now doing battle pets. The turn based play suits me really well and I am now moving into adding gold making through Battle pets.

    Thanks

    Steve

  2. Hi Steve, you’ll really enjoy 7.2 if you enjoy Battle pets. In 7.2 we’re getting Battle Pet Dungeons. Not much has been posted about it yet, but I urge you to keep an eye out online. I too look forward to these dungeons, but it’s too soon to guess what they’ll be like.

    Keep up the gold making, sounds like you’re doing extremely well. Do you have any gold making goals for 7.2?
