    Alright spend 200k in gold, not really that easy if you are like me and save pretty much all the money you get, cause I mean let's face it, you can find way better weapons and stuff by looting the open-world than you can find in shops. And for training well you don't have 15k early in the game and by the time you do you probably already have 3 points in that skill.

    Well for those of you who are like me and save money haven't really bought to many items besides lockpicks, and repair kits. Then this is for you.

    Alright basically this is a really easy way to get the achievement...basically just play through the game like normal and save up money as you go. Once you amass enough gold so you have 200k and above head to the Plains of Erathell from Lorca-Rane in Daelntarth. The first area you come to is The Wolds. From there go three areas to the east toward Kandria. In the 2nd half of Kandria you will find a town called Mel Aglir. In the town there is a shop called "Kandrian Goods" go inside and talk to the shop owner.

    He will have Chakrams for sale the most expensive one is 219k and another one is 212k just save before you talk to him then buy one of the Chakrams and the achievement will pop as soon as you exit the buying screen. (Found this while playing on my clan account)

    *EDIT* Also if you somehow happen to be short on money somehow by then, there is this great continous quest in Ayten in "The Wolds" called Rogue Harvest that involves you collecting Freeman Armbands...about 20 armbands nets you about 35k ish.

    Ace PhoenyxJust a comment about what you said on training. If you want to get a point in something that you already are above the level of training then you can reset your abilities, get the training and then level-up again afterwards. A little expensive but well worth the point from the training, especially since gold isn't a major issue in the game for most people.

    This achievement is pretty self explanatory. You simply have to spend 200,000 gold (cumulative) anywhere in the world. Keeping and selling loot the obvious approach to this but if you've got the gold, spending money on training speeds the process up quite a bit (as 1 basic level of training costs 15,000 gold each).

    I thought I wasn't going to get this just playing normally, since the stores never seemed to have anything that was better than I had found as loot. But I got it without even trying, and with only having bought a few weapons and armor, so I think it includes things like paying to repair your equipment, removing curses and disease, training skills, etc.

    ZatosanI'm pretty sure it works for repairing equipment. I think I got it while repairing my equipment during the "Teeth of Naros" DLC, so it even keeps the tally through DLCs.

    JimTheSafetyManThere is definitely something strange with this achievement. I got it after killing a bear... Wholly unexpected.
