Wait…why is it called ‘The Penthouse’? Ok, you guys with dirty minds, no, this is not the Playboy Mansion and bunny ears are not required…although that would be kind of neat…maybe for the next one? j/k
I picked the Penthouse because it is typically the top floor of an expensive or prestigious hotel and since we talk about gold-making in the World of Warcraft, why not call it something that is valuable… Penthouse suite!! Additionally, after doing some quick research, there is a place in the UK called “The Penthouse” (picture shown to the right), which is one of the richest places in the world.
Excerpt from an article about the 10 Most Expensive Houses In The World (reference page here from Oct 2012)
“The Penthouse is the most expensive apartment in the world with a price of £ 6,000 per sq / ft. These apartments are guarded by a very sophisticated security system, from bulletproof glass and various other security facilities and are all 2 hours nonstop.”
Why did we start this up?
Well, after listening to the prior Google + Hangouts from gold-makers abroad back in 2012, a couple of us thought it would be neat to bring this back on a periodic basis whether it’s weekly, fortnightly (every 2 weeks), or monthly.
As the elected facilitator of this one, I was happy to be joined by the folks who were talking with me and helped make this happen, Nev Jones from Auction House Addict and Eric Dekker (Xsinthis) from The Golden Crusade!
We talk on a variety of subjects, keeping it very casual and off-the-cuff, and keeping it to a little over one hour (1h 9mins), here are some topic highlights:
- Introductions from three countries
- Why are we doing this
- What have we been making gold on lately
- TradeSkillMaster 2.0
- Hobbies other than gaming
- Eric’s Gold Strategy Guide for World of Warcraft
(Profitz likes sniffing books and Eric gave his rule of thumb about NOT sniffing library books)
- Copyrights/Laws on Content
- Nev paints her nails and plays MTG
- What’s in a name
- The one thing we would RIP-OUT & implement in Wow if we were in charge
- and more…
Without further ado, welcome to The Penthouse!
