Post WoW Token - 30days for In-game Gold.
Read about it here

They are curbing trade spam by having the Token use a variation of the auction house, and pricing is based on supply & demand (using a similar concept to GW2 AH system). Should be interesting to see how this goes and what sort of pricing 30days of gametime ends up going for.

I wonder if it would be affordable. 30 days of game time is like 12 eu nowdays?
I wonder how much work one needs to do, to pay for playing with gold.
I have a freind who might be intrested.

I have big hopes for this one. Maybe I won't have to pay for a subscription ever again. :P
I don't understand why it costs more than a normal 30 days fee though, greedy blizzard.

It's very hard to know what prices they will set but probably 30-60k gold each. I doubt they will get rid of goldsellers this way since their price will be more than double what the goldsellers are offering.

I am not sure that region wide sale is the best for this either, it means that gold might move to other servers and ruins some servers economy.

It's a nice way to curb the cost of playing the game if you've the time (and a way) to effectively farm for gold. Could stretch the initial sub to last me over half a year with PLEX when I still played EVE.

A welcome change.

Blizzard proving once again they are better at using idea's of others then coming up with stuff of their own.

Edit: But yes, I do like this being added.

We still do not know one important bit. How expensive this token will be. 100k gold on a big active realm does not equal 100k gold on a small realm.

I am pretty sure we will know soon enough. Given how fast they put this on PTR, I would expect this in game in a few weeks.

Yeah, Muenne, and given it is regional it will be interesting to see how low-pop servers affect the price. It is a nice addition, nonetheless, and I am sure Blizz will "adjust" market if it means more people will buy the token to sell it on.
