I wanted to do the poll here but the forums don't give you much by way of poll options or multiple selections :(

Go nuts!

    I spend gold on hunting for gold so I have more gold to spend on keeping me hunting for gold. It's a vicious cycle. The rest I spend on family

    Credits, sigils and armour (because it can't be made non-decay). Everything else I either still have huge stocks of or I can obtain myself through tradeskills.

    Damn suddenly it feels so uni dimensional. I spend 99% on credits.

    Everything! Except curatives, I don't need to pay for those. But everything else is on the list

    I usually just spend my gold on amassing more gold. Though the change in mining and the directory has kind of made me lose interest in playing the rich tycoon anymore. We'll be fighting an uphill battle now and I've no interest in working hard to build businesses anymore if they're just going to be run into the ground by changes in the game. I've been playing the long game for hundreds of years, slowly amassing wealth. It can still be done during promotions and such but, meh, I'm approaching the end game for wealth anyway, I've 4-5 classes, ships, houses, shops, nearly every artifact and shop-of-wonder item I can use (and some I can't), I've got hundreds of talisman pieces, 3k+ credits, 10 million+ gold and 250 or so rare minerals and 15k+ of just about every mineral and herb. I've got a stockrooms with rare collectibles and 20 or so crates filled with mini pets. I'm not sure what to spend gold on anymore. 

    #humblebrag

    Im retiring from mining the more profitable lodes, going to give up my #1 ranking spot. If I mine it will likely just be coal and I'll assault expensive mines that are at 90% completion for a quick payout. We'll see how terribly the directory crashes the curative market, I may rent my shop out if it gets too bad. I'm not going to go around harvesting and extracting to make beans for it.

    So far most of the results have been as expected. Except the number of you using hookers and complaining about your gold-digging boyfriends/girlfriends. >_> y'all just lucky this poll is anonymous.

    I don't spend my gold, I bury it in a random place in 100k caches. Then I get too lazy to dig it back up and just trade credits for fills or whatever else I need. I don't know how many times I've done it over 13ish? Years of playing khairt but good luck and God bless if you find some of them.

    Refills and potash. I'm currently hoarding it all in a bank while considering the thought of buying a ship. Though, I am unsure about that since seafaring is a major undertaking.
    Give us -real- shop logs! Not another misinterpretation of features we ask for, turned into something that either doesn't help at all, or doesn't remotely resemble what we wanted to begin with.

    Thanks!

    I think I am backwards. I spend my credits to get gold. I don't spend my gold to get credits....

    Huh, only accurate to the city for mine, unless I did this on the bus. I don't remember, but I don't think so.

    Yeah same, only accurate to the city for me. The actual green location lands in a main downtown part of the area, of which I am no where near.
    And I love too                                                                          Be still, my indelible friend
    That love soon might end                                                         You are unbreaking

    Apparently at my home in surburbia, it says that I am currently in the middle of the City answering the poll, I think it's a little off hahaha

    Same here. Same city, but way way way way way way off the mark, and I am fairly sure I am the only one here from Dominican Republic (Or even the Caribbean and South America, from the looks of it)

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...
