    I'm usually floating somewhere between 50-100 mil. Have 56 mil right now and about 150-200 mil in gear I'm not currently using because I'm waiting to drop MF pieces.

    Never paid real money for gold or items, made everything I have by farming every day after work for 2-4 hours and 10-20 hours a weekend, d3 has all but killed my social life lol. I think making gold is easy enough but most the players I know tend to sit on their gold or over price things trying to milk as much profit as possible, which leaves them in the slow lane. I tend to be the opposite, I go for broke and spend everything I make on the best possible upgrades I can, often leaving myself farming A1 for a few hours for some repair gold. But buying better singular upgrades works because when I'm done using something I can usually sell it back for what I paid or even make a small profit which means I rarely lose gold. I think I have 350-400 mil in gear/gold now, not "godly" but getting there.

    Good advice here. I know a few people that constantly spend their gold on crap gear

    I was at negative 10M on Sunday after borrowing from a friend to buy something (for 40M). I'm back up to 14M today (and that's after spending another 30-40M on MF gear on monday). I don't like to keep a lot of money on hand with current state of inflation, lol. However, I may save my money now for when I reach 13 more paragon levels to buy a killer weapon (once I can stay at max MF without my Sunkeeper).

    My best advice to people that are complaining about having no money in this thread... get some better MF. It takes me about an hour to run most of Act 3 (cydea/azmo run w/ a few extra areas) and I'll typically get 1 legendary and 1-2 rares worth selling (500k-10M worth typically). Of course if you only play 1-2 hours a week or something like that... then yeah you won't find drops to make money. This is at 399 MF (thanks follower) full time. MF is worth it, trust me... and the gear is less expensive than you probably think.
    you are ranged, dont forget that pls.
    when i look at your profile u only stacked your main stat +mf, thats it.
    melee-gear with mf is actually super expensive since u still need all resist etc.

    Yeah, I was a bit tunnel visioned with that advice. I don't just stack int in my MF set though! I have a few pieces with nice resists and vit as well (not to mention crit and crit damage).... but your point stands, it's more expensive to MF gear a melee, that's a fact.

    It's worth it though. I'd work hard to get around 200 MF before NV if you can afford it. It will make a big difference in the long run. You'll make your money back in the end.

    It is not so hard as people paint it to be. I have done it twice once for 20 mil, second for 50. Both times from scratch.
    If you already have gear you only need to look for a few pieces. Aside form that legendarys help a lot because people simply dont value them as much as rares (old legys) and with a couple of nice rares to offset the gimpness of legys you can farm a3 no problem.

    Check out that barb, maybe there is some insight for you in there.

    I thought this was about how much cash we have stockpiled, not about discussing how hard or easy it is to make gold...

    There are so many options...
    Go to A2 normal, farm for Leorics Ring... might take a while, but that's easily 100m right now.
    Wear gold find gear, farm A3/A4 hell, or A1 inferno
    Pick up blue ilvl 61+, salvage, sell on AH (800 gold each right now!)
    Tomes
    flawless square gems
    Hell, you can even go to normal or nightmare and farm +exp gear. I'm wearing crap mf gear worth less than 100k right now, and just from selling rare + exp rings that drop on A2 normal I make 50k a piece, fast sell

    Except for Leoric's Ring, the above are very reliable sources of income, and don't require great gear, just some time invested killing stuff.

    I don't consider WW barbs to be in the same field as "melee" when it comes to comparative pricing for viable farming gear. The defensive requirements are half or less what it takes for a truly tank 'n' spank type character to be successful, and for farming viability DPS remains nearly the same. For the specs that don't tank, but still spank in melee range, often the DPS requirement is boosted, either by way of needing more of the same stats, or needing much more valuable stats or combinations of the latter (crit, crit damage, AS, LoH, etc).

    As I said before, you will not put together a 200% base MF barb (that's before NV stacks, by the way) and still be rocking 1000+ AR, 40-50K DPS, for 10, 20 mil. 50 mil isn't completely out of reality, but the sheer dumb luck and time it would take to win exceptional items on bidding alone would be out of reach for almost everyone to achieve.

    So for the sake of relativity, cheese builds don't count in the discussion.

    The problem with the original poll is that gold funds in the present are always fluctuating. I can go from 50m to 1m in a single purchase, and vice-versa. Because that's the case, the discussion about how much gold one has hinges entirely on how to make gold, or what particular sales got us to the point we are. That's the nature of discussion boards, especially ones with a truly involved participant base.

    PS: Most of us can't make gold at work, so we turn to making long posts :)
