This is why many keep wondering just how much the Wow greatest player has accumulated for himself so far. These and more are what we are about to share with you in the paragraphs below.
Asmongold Began His Online Gaming Journey as a Teenager
An American national, Asmongold hails from Austin, Texas where he was born sometime in 1990. It is not known what name he was given at birth but he goes by the moniker Zack.
Sharing details about his journey into the gaming world, he mentioned that he grew up playing videogames and was really into Halo until he discovered WoW in 2006. According to him, he made the discovery in the same way most kids discover drugs and he was hooked and couldn’t let go.
When he was 16, a boy in his computer class sold him a copy of World of Warcraft for $15. At the time, he just bought it because he thought the amount was a good one. He left it on his bookshelf and never really thought about it until the summer of 2006.
One of his friends visited and talked him into playing the shelved game. That day marked Asmongold’s journey into the world of gaming possibilities. Since then, he has played the game consistently apart from a few months when he took time off to play other games such as Diablo, Overwatch, and Path of Exile.
His BattleTag, Asmongold is a moniker that goes back to his younger days. As a child of 6 or 7, when he played with his friends in the woods and the need for a code name arises, he had always used Asmongold. Thus, when he started WoW, Asmongold came in handy and has continued to be his alias.

Asmongold has been able to grow his net worth to an estimated $1.2 million from his online career. He has been producing videos since he received a video camera on his 11th birthday and even as an adult, his love for visual images never waned. This, coupled with his love for games, led him to create a Twitch channel and subsequently venture into YouTube.
His Twitch Career
This, coupled with his love for games, led him to create a Twitch channel called Asmongold in November 2011 where he primarily plays World of Warcraft. He streams for 5 – 8 hours at a time and at one time, he streamed for 25 hours straight. Over time, he has succeeded in establishing himself among the best World of Warcraft streamers.
Thanks to his ever-growing popularity on the platform, Asmongold has garnered more than 2 million followers on his channel and his streams have been viewed over 236 million times. Moreover, he has over 3.5 years of game time and is the guild leader for the Alliance Progressive Raiding Guild known as “Indestructible”.
