So you bought a WoW token

Ok, I admit it, I bought a WoW token with in game gold. And I don’t regret it for a second. 

I don’t know how long the idea of having the in game token will last for, I don’t know what impact it will have on the economy, and to be honest I’m not too bothered. Because last night I was able to pay for a month of my addiction WoW time without using real money and with very little effort. I paid $24k for it, which is below the initial price of $30k, though I expect the price will continue to go down over time. And I’ve accidentally spent more than that on pets, so you know…

Getting it was easy. There’s a new category on the Auction House called “Game time”. I clicked on that, it told me the price of the token, and I clicked buy! The token then arrived in the mail. 

Here it is in my bags:

I right clicked on it to activate it:

Am I sure?!? Of course I’m sure! 


The whole thing is being monitored pretty closely by Blizzard, and already they’ve made some changes to the pricing and what not. Here’s hoping it won’t get too out of hand and that this can stick around. Cos let’s face it, this is really handy. For whatever reason this time of year is always a bit financially crap, so not having to worry about paying for my subscription for another month is definitely nice. 

Has anyone else bought a token? How did it all go for you?
