    Just curious, how much gold can you have?

    Does anyone know what the gold limit is? How much you can have, max? I think I once read on the forums, during SoA, it was 1000 gold, but no one seemed sure.

    BTW, I am not asking how much gold people have, that's not the question (just want to be clear that I am not being a nosy hobbit.. just a curious one ). I just want to know, in general, what the cap is.

    Thanks.

    I can safely tell you that the cap isn't 1,000G.

    Maybe 9,999G 999S and 99C. Or maybe none even.

    We are talking computers. There is always a cap. The cap maybe be large enough that we do not have to worry about it. Assuming Turbine used a 64 bit integer you could have something over 10 quintillion (where a quintillion is 10 to the 18th). It would interesting to see if they could display a number that big on the character sheet.

    Yeah, I may have chosen my words poorly.

    This is what I meant when I said no cap. A cap of 99,999G for me is pretty much as good as no cap as it is a number no one is likely to reach.

    But yeah, you're right, there's always a limit to everything in the computer field, heh.

    During SoA I knew someone with over 1,400 gold, so that wasn't accurate. As posted above, I can also tell you that the gold cap is above 2,000. I'd be willing to bet that there is no cap. If you want to know, I'm sure we could try to round up folks on beta, and pool all of our gold together and see what we come up with.

    Nada.

    Don't have it on my beta character or my new trial now standard characters with any gold. How much broze or Silver does it take to get to Gold?

    Re: Just curious, how much gold can you have?

    You know, I went and checked at the character screen and in the field for money on the character screen, there doesn't seem to have enough space for a number higher than 9,999G.

    But then again, a bank character is easy enough to make, if it is all it would take, heh.

    That could be interesting Just kind of as a fun thing to do. If you do it, let me know the result please .

    Anyway, thanks everyone. I guess it's kind of like the old question, "how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie pop?"

    I got enough skirmish marks on Tantalus that some of the panels can not handle it. The panels drops the right most digit. They can only handle four digits. Instead of 34,936. It displays 3493 - I can not remember what happened to the comma. You will see this happen on the purchase panels at the trainer.

    I see. I guess it could act like this with gold as well. Who know, heh?

    No clue. I'll gladly play the role of guinea pig and accept any donations though. Just keep the gold coming and I'm tell you when I reach the cap.

    I'm more impressed generally that we can sell a stack of GOLD INGOTS for about 1 or 2 gold COIN.

    The day people figure out how to melt down their ingots into coins, this whole game economy is going to shift dramatically.

    I guess Bullroarer would make it easier to test. Does the gold get transferred too?

    I think when you buy the item to remove the gold cap, it tells you what your new gold cap is in the chat box. If i remember right, it's either 9,999 or 99,999.

    Re: Just curious, how much gold can you have?

    There is probably a limit. It is probably not a neat number as some have proposed. It is almost certainly going to be a multiple of 8.

    I actually put in a ticket on this one. According to an unnamed SGM, there is NO figure limit on the gold a character can hold.

    Just for curiousity's sake, everyone please send gold to me so I can inform everybody when I hit the cap.

    This is vital and we must figure this out.

    Together we can do this!
