I'll post a poll but here's my definition to define the wealth of your character depending on if all of your gear and coin value is worth the amounts:


Poor: Less than 10M

Middle Class: Between 100M and 500M

Rich: More than 500m, but less than 1B

Wealthy: Anything above 1.56B

    Shouldn't your ''rich'' be 500m-1b? Cause now someone that is 250m can be middle and rich. xD

    You're a mystery!

    You're also a mystery when you have between 1b and 1.56b (WHY 1.56, BTW?).

    I am guessing Old r9 cost maybe?

    Personally it takes 4~24 billion to get top notch gear, that is where wealthy should start from. 1~3 Billion is easy to do once the money starts rolling.

    1.56B was based off of decent gears to allow one to actually be survivable and competitive in TW/PK.


    If you have this in coins then it's easy to merchant and produce more in a quick amount of time.

    There's a pretty big gap there in between "poor" and "middle class" so I guess my char would be something like blue collar/working poor? And are we counting coin we've been sinking into stuff like skills/pets/manufacturing? Because if not (and do keep in mind that for sage/demon this could be rather substantial amounts) then bound gear should not count as wealth. What about fash? Is this sticker price or market?

    Net value is not necessarily an indicator of available resources or disposable income as there are many other factors working in this equation. There's probably people with currently little or no coin in their account whose expertise in farming or merchanting can likely make them millions in relatively short amounts of time, while others that could count as wealthy are likely broke for practical purposes. Now, I realize that this probably isn't meant to be an in depth study of in-game socioeconomics but using irl terminology such as "poor" or "wealthy" can be misleading, as perhaps income would provide a better picture.

    For instance, my char's net worth is under the 100mil mark in terms of liquid assets, but i would consider it "middle class" as I can get through everyday activity at a profit, have got nearly all my 90 gear (currently working on 99-100) and I do get some (admittedly small) amounts of zen on a regular basis. Ofc, it does also come down to how you value assets, my stock of TT mats could very well put me into middle class status if I estimate it at catshop prices, but this is rarely what I get when I actually try to move the stuff, which is part of the reason I've actually come to build a larger inventory than I would like (I do consider small scale warehousing to be inefficient). Now, I estimate my monthly expenses to be above 50mil, I'm no penny pincher but I'm not a big spender either, the game really is that expensive to play.

    I don't think having 1B+ makes one wealthy considering how little in end game gear you can buy with it, but if OP does, then by his standards I am wealthy O_O

    I have a few million coin and some gold left from all my farmingness. For example, I logged in just to buy Halloween fashion, dye it black, sit at my old spot for an hour or so and logged off. Best male fashion ever.

    I'll forever look like this now (rainbow axes ftw!):

    I don't count my end-game gear and refines as part of my "wealth" since most of it is bound. I do have 2 soc +11 Deicides that aren't bound. I never got around to +12ing them because honestly the dps difference wasn't worth it to me. Even with +12 Deicides I'd still be a DHF bi*ch.
    I post in forums. This one and others. That's why I post.

    I'm in the middle if you take into account all my tradeable stuff. I haven't added together all my fashion but it is a substantial amount and I do have most of the popular fashions. I also only have like 53 million coins since I haven't been merchanting in a long while and just spending. I had way more but b:surrender

    If you take into account what I have invested on my sin, which includes gear, rep, mounts/flyers, fashion, skills, refines, shards, tradable items/assets etc, then wealthy.

    If we're only taking tradable items/assets into account, wealthy.

    The OP needs to totally edit the poll to read like this:

    What is your current value including GEARS and MONEY:

    DIRT POOR - under 10mill

    POOR - under 40mill

    MIDDLE CLASS - 40 to 150mill

    UPPER CLASS - 150mill to 400mill

    WEALTHY - 400mill to 1.5bill

    RICH AS CREAM - 1.5billion +


    That leaves me as MIDDLE CLASS but doesnt tell the whole story either. I have my money and gears spread across 3 mains and 2 up-and-comings so each one is dirt poor of itself.

    1.5b can't even buy you full r9 with decent ornaments.

    500m - 1b is probably middle.

    1b - 6b rich

    6 - 50b wealthy.

    Considering all my characters/accounts togather :
    ~When looking at historical buy value, I'm wealthy.
    ~When looking at todays buy value, I'm more then wealthy as a large part of my expensive items doubled/trippled in price since I've gotten them.
    ~When looking at todays resell value of all my stuff, I got no freaking idea. I got a significant number off un-tradeable stuff (also including safe expensions, skills, etc), and a great deal of items that can only be roughly estimated in their value (like a -12% channel necklace, or perfect pink fashion). I'll probably be wealthy.
    ~When looking at npc value, I got no idea but I'm curious about that. I'm a real junk-collecter b:cute

    Considering each toon individually :
    ~Will go from poor to wealthy, at historical and todays buy value.
    ~Will go from poor to rich, and maybe wealthy at resell value.

    Considering my toons on use value :
    ~I'm freaking wealthy, as my separated accounts and the toons on them allow me to do anything and everything, squad and solo, whenever I want without needing to worry about weapon links and squad composition. That's priceless b:victory

    EDIT : LOLZ at the person considering anything below r9 as "too poor to be worthy a poll option".

    Ok. Im dirt poor then. Mostly got around 1-10m. Also Im still working bit by bit on my endgame gear.
    I feel like every1 in this game is rich except me.
    Merchanting? I gave up on that...

    I guess I'm a middle class but the money spent on my gear and the gear I'm currently making (3rd cast Nirvana) plus all the Demon skills is...a lot. That's not even counting the Sage skills for my two alts with were just as expensive.

    Not really sure what I am then lol, certainly not on top though.

    Have barely enough to teleport to the next town.

    Although I guess I should have 1m for turning up to TW last Friday lol. Which will be left for a new charm.

    I don't play enough to earn 20k a week anymore, let alone enough to be "middle class".
    I've quit excluding TW for my faction. But I still hang around to help out those who still enjoy the game under PWEs horrific handling and to have fun in the forums. b:cute

    1k gold is going to get you no where... even in half witted TW. More or less anything under 2-3k gold geared is going to be sub par in competitive tw.
