  • World of Warcraft New Token System Would Restrain Wow Gold Selling Market?

    As Patch 6.1 been successfully launched last month, the next mini expansion patch 6.1.2 has been put into practice nearly in the meanwhile. A dramatic breakthrough in test edition of the next mini patch is the Wow Token System which catches players and publicity’s eyes the most.

    Here is a brief guide of how this system works?

    • The Token which is as currency can be bought from in-game store in World of Warcraft by real money.

    • After that players can use Token to buy Game time in Auction House. There are three important information that wowers should know:

    1. Trading should base on the principle of “FIFO”.

    2. Blizzard will control exchange price.

    3. Exchange price is fixed within a day but may float and vary in different day and in different server.

    • Players who want to buy wow gold or Game time can trade each other in Auction House to get what they need. In addition, for some long unused accounts which still contain enough gold to buy Game time but without any subscriptions can buy Game time by wow gold directly in game and reborn this character.

    Till now most of feedbacks to this issue are positive, and obviously there are two main perspectives. The first one is that game will become more fair and convenient for players, and the second, the new Wow Token System will save players’ money for paying subscription every month.

    On the other hand, few queries about this new system are raised too.

    • If exchange price between Token and Game time was too high in game, it would be difficult to achieve the goal of Blizzard actually.

    • If exchange price was too low, players might not willing to sell their Game time out in Auction House, therefore balance of demand and supply would break even though Blizzard has right to control price.

    As a reliable wow gold seller who has found over 8 years long till now, we think that the new Token System will not infect or even will boost off-game wow gold trading market. Can’t deny that it is a good news for players that Game time can be purchased by wow gold in game, but Game time is a fixed expense (subscription costs 14.99USD each month per player) for every player each month, so that demand of it is fixed. However as we know that most of wow players who buy gold off-game actually for building gears of their characters, therefore, the new Token System will not influence off-game gold selling market much in fact. In a word, all of the wow players will get the biggest beneficiaries, so in this respect, what a good news!


    NOTICE: All gold we sell is legal. If some tricksters who Whisper to you after trading, please ignore them to avoid gold loss.  DON’T TRADE GOLD BACK TO ANYONE ELSE.
