Gold in WoW has value based on the time it takes a player to earn it. The various methods of farming gold, such as growing herbs, yield maybe 20,000 gold per hour. That means at a price of 100,000 gold, a token represents about five hours of grinding, or offers a wage of $3 per hour. The idea of gold being worth a certain amount per hour is a useful way of framing this discussion, in fact.
And the methods that gold sellers were using to harvest gold were wreaking havoc on the game. There was no way to stop the selling of gold as long as there was demand among the player base to pay for gold with cash. But there was a way to kill off these parasitic and predatory businesses that were involved in selling illicit gold: In April 2015, Blizzard took gold selling legit with the WoW Token.
To put that in perspective, the high-priced vanity mount released with Legion is a giant spider called the Bloodfang Widow. It costs 2 million gold. If you wanted to buy one with cash, using WoW tokens, it would have cost over $1,100 at the time Legion was released, in August 2016. If you wanted to do the same thing in July 2018, it would have cost less than $200.
Quite possibly the greatest source of information in regards to leveling I have seen for a new expansion. Bravo. Me and my friend are having a week long lan party at my house so we plan on leveling our mains to 120, doing all the week 1 shit and then starting at least another toon to get 120 as an alt (I personally am an altoholic, its bad, send help)
Heirloom experience should be boosted, now that zones scale. If a zone scales along with me, it shouldn't matter if it gives me 20 levels instead of 10. I'm still enjoying the experience, even as a veteran player. I don't need to see every zone on every character again; that's the point of heirlooms. I can still enjoy the leveling experience, and the scaling, and the full outdoor experience of the zones -- and still get to the end game content I enjoy in a somewhat reasonable time as an employed adult. And the change wouldn't affect new players.
I dont know if this exist already, if it does I couldnt find one, but it would be nice to have a guide with the location of all daily quest broken down by Alliance, Horde, Faction, Neutral, etc. I know there can be variable quest for things like Fishing and Cooking but just having the location for those quest givers would be great. If it were a stand alone addon that would be even better!
In 2015, Blizzard started letting players buy gold from each other using WoW Tokens, to try to control the process and mitigate damage. “Time is money, friend — but sometimes one is harder to come by than the other,” Blizzard says on the official page. “Now World of Warcraft players can use the WoW Token in exchange for game time or Battle.net Balance!”
