This post is part of the Casual Gold Making Series. This series aims to provide valuable tips and techniques for being successful at gold making for casual players.Establish a Time Frame
The word “casual” gets thrown around a lot in the World Of Warcraft community. You can be a “casual” player, a “casual” PvP’er, a “casual” raider, and of course a “casual” gold maker. These days, the term casual really just means you don’t have a lot of play time. Casual gold making is something any player can accomplish. Of course though, there is one caveat. Because you are on limited play time, you would of course have a greater opportunity for increased earnings if you spent more time playing. Other then that, the playing field is pretty even. For someone who is looking to make gold on a casual basis, it’s important to pick a time frame that works the best for you. How much time can you really dedicate to strictly making gold? If you’re spending an hour a day playing WoW, what of that can you dedicate directly to gold making? The first step to being successful is putting together a routine. To put together your routine, you have to have a time frame dedication. Once a time frame has been decided on, you can then determine your routine, and potentially your markets based upon that. One important thing to note is that when you lock down your time commitment, be honest to yourself. While it sounds great to say “I can spend two hours a day on gold making”, don’t plan for that if it’s really not feasible. If you can only gaurntee yourself 30 minutes a day, then only spend 30 minutes a day. The key to being successful on a casual level is consistency. Maintaining a consistent and profitable routine will build your wealth over the long haul. You want to aim for linear wealth. By that I mean wealth that is consistently moving forward in an uphill slope. Not a in small spurts and peaks and valleys. If you can make your time commitment consistent, then your earnings will become consistent.
This is just one small part of being successful as a casual gold maker. Stay on the look out for more in this series!

Hello! Yes, still alive and kicking! Capped By Cata is still chugging along nicely. However, content production has slowed to a crawl. This is mostly due to my personal work schedule and taking interest in my other hobby of paintball. But alas, the paintball season has drawn to a close and thus focus will return to Capped By Cata and the World Of Warcraft. I had started on a site revamp and really like it, so now it’s just about producing more content to help you with making gold in the World Of Warcraft. As with most people, the next two months will be crazy. The holiday season is upon us. With the holiday season drawing near, I’m setting new goals that I want to accomplish before year end. I want you guys to be a part of that, so I’m putting this together as a road map of things to watch for in the coming months.
New Series: I’m going back to series writing. I’ll be putting out several series that are gold making related over the course of the next two months. When news slows down, it’s time to get back to basics. The first series I will be writing will be how to make gold on casual play time.
News Letter Emphasis: The Capped By Cata mailer is gaining new subscribers on a daily basis. I will be putting out gold making tips and content directed only to news letter subscribers. If you haven’t signed up yet, now is the time!
Gold Making Videos: This is a long standing back burner project for me. I’ve got a lot of backlog footage I’m going to edit and narrate to get posted for you folks. Hopefully these will be helpful for you.
Auction House Junkies: A refocus on the podcast as well. Cold and Mike have been on me about getting more shows put out, and I don’t want to disappoint. Start to look for shows to be put out within close to 24 hours after recording.
Capped By Cata Consulting: I would also like to be more active in the personal consulting process. If you would like to book a time for one on one consulting, please see the For Hire tab.
A Holiday Gift: I’ve been working on and off over the past few months on a specialized mini guide. I’ll be hoping to release this to kick off the holiday season. It’s not going to be anything incredibly expensive, and would make a nice stocking stuffer for any World Of Warcraft player.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for Capped By Cata. Will be going into the new year strong and I hope to make it our best year yet. A special thank you for all of our readers and Auction House Junkies listeners. If you would like to see anything special or have concerns or comments, please let us know!
