WoWflation Anniversary – 114% – How hard has your stash been hit?
I am pleased to serve up year-over-year inflation data!
Specifically, we can look at the Vanilla/BC/Wrath index and compare it to one year ago, to see precisely how much and what kind of inflation there has been since the late days of Wrath.
(The composite index including Cata only started early this year)
Without further ado, here are the numbers! …
On an annual basis, as objectively as I can offer, we’ve had 114% inflation since last October.
Fun data points:
Inflation per expansion and item category:
By item category (note: only 3 different types for each group, grain of salt here…):
Unfun point: If you were gold capped a year ago, you’d need 460K just to have the same purchasing power you had then.
Seriously unfun point: If you had 1 million gold a year ago and have less than 2.14 million today, you are falling behind, my friend. Giddyup!
