i'm curious to know, what do you players do if you are carrying around 100K+ gold all the time? how do you get rid of it all?

1. Buy Housing, you can have up to 3 houses ( not including the bunkhouse ).
2. Piles of Treasure eat up the gold nicely; try the bazaar or various housing vendors in Flotsam, Marleybone or Aquila. Store them in your house.
3. Buy Ships and equip them; store them in your housing Ship Yards.
4. Morph for that perfect pet or help others get that perfect pet.
The best thing about # 2 & 3 is that if you're pressed for gold later in the game, you can sell them.

Buy a bunch of useless stuff that is also very expensive and then trash it all.

Sometimes I just leave my pirate at max gold and sink ships for Scrip.

Most of the time I go to Florenza and buy Stone Bridge (100,000) and Unicorn Statue (65,000). I've also been known to go to the Pet Snack Vendor and buy 300 Banana Sandwiches.

1: i already got 3 houses.
2: i'm buying all the treasure piles i can in bazaar and passing them to another char for (much) later. plus i am buying all the large snacks and Racket pet cards i can get.
3: i already got i think 32 ships in my inventory. all adequately armed and equipped. plus lots of spare equipment. (had to get rid of some cause they were taking up space)
4: i got way way too many pets to even think about morphing right now.

Did you completely decorate all the houses?
I'm at the same point as you, nothing to spend gold for. When we get side content, we'll have more stuff to spend gold for!

No, I mean when; please don't correct my comments unless they're incorrect. I believe that we'll be seeing signs of an up date soon, maybe by late March.
Congrats on the scrip haul!

Banana sandwiches for the win!
Also my suggestion is learn the rug glitch and buy piles of treasures and link them together it makes for a great looking treasure room.

we thought we'd get an update in December with Polaris and look where that went. ki gave no hint in either ki live or in the newsletter. so i don't foresee an update for at least 6 months. but i wont lead us off course of the main subject here.

I usually spend my gold on Companion Training tomes so I can level up the lower ranks, other than that it helps to update your ship or buy a new one.

KI never does a story line/content update in winter - mainly, the rule is: "Spring or Fall or not at all".
I would like it if KI changed the Well in the Smuggler's Cove house to just give scrip if the pirate using it is at max gold.
Right now, if you're at max gold and the random roll is for gold, you won't receive anything.
