    Hi. Does anyone here have the achievement that you get when you have 100,000 gold? I just want to know if anyone else does besides me.

    I'd have it if I stopped buying houses and what not. As is I'm just under 40k and saving for it.

    Tips I can think of, get married, your spouse will cut you in on their store profits., Become the Thief's Guild master, lots of loot earned that way plus a cut back as well. Steal anything that is 100g+, get the speech perks that net better prices, that let you sell stolen items to any vender and let you sell any item to any merchant.

    Ya, the 100k achievement wasnt that hard to get since its easy to make money (Dark Brotherhood and Thieves guild = EASY money) :p make money murdering people while selling all the items u stole along the way (kill person then rob their whole house LOL)

    Wow, 100K gold?!

    I would never think about reaching that ._.


    I guess I should do more Thieves Guild Quests for money, then.

    Sadly 95% of my moneys came from doing every thing but the Thieves Guild those were(and still are) worth small change.

    When I started selling potions I was creating my gold shot through the roof, very abruptly. So yes, I do have the achievement as well. Smithing, Alchemy and Enchanting all make the achievement very obtainable when you perk into them.

    I got the 100k Achievement early ( 2am ) yesterday morning on my last character. I hadn't done any quests for the Dark Brotherhood or the Thieves Guild. I simply made & sold Ebony Armour & Weapons, I enchanted a few of them to increase profits more quickly. I had heaps of Ebony Ore & Ingots from mining. I only sold them at the merchants in Whiterun, Solitude & the Trader at Riverwood.

    You must own every house/upgrade too then. I doubt I'm halfway through the content, 1house, I hoard a ton of stuff, and have 40k or so on hand. I even spent all my db earnings in fixing up my sanctuary. The achievement isn't hard to obtain if you set out to do it.

    Well I managed it today. Started with my 50k in savings(stashed at Dawnstar DB place due to it being 90% stolen :p) Picked it up and spend 30 mins selling every non needed potion I had, then 5 or 6 pieces of higher gold armor I had sitting around :)

    I got this achievement with my warrior tank. When you spec for high health, armor rating and weapon damage, clearing out giant camps and forsworn camps gets you a lot of sell-able items. Granted its grinding it out but that's the fun of it.

    do you have to have the 100k on your person or just make that much. if you just have to make that much then i did it a long time ago. if you have to have it on your person then i dont have it yet. i keep seeing houses i just have to have and weapons i want to display in said houses.

    ^^ You have to have 100K on you.. lol

    Also I made all my money by selling my enchanted items (getting my enchanting to lvl 100), Selling my smithing gear (getting my smithing to lvl 100), Selling pretty much everything that is worth money, also I never really buy stuff.. ever.
