World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game that has captivated millions of players worldwide. One significant aspect of the game is that it has its own in-game currency, known as gold. Gold can be used to purchase items, gear, and materials needed for gameplay, as well as to trade with other players.
In 2015, Blizzard Entertainment introduced the WoW Token – an innovative feature that allows players to buy game time with real money and then sell that game time (in the form of a token) in-game for gold. This way, players who have limited time but extra cash can conveniently buy their way into the game while players who would rather not spend real money for their subscription can do so by buying tokens with their in-game gold. In this post, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about buying and selling WoW Tokens.
What is a WoW Token?
A WoW Token is an in-game item that can be purchased with real money from the World of Warcraft in-game shop or the Battle.net shop. Once bought, the token can be sold on the Auction House within your game realm for gold, or can be redeemed for 30 days of game time or Battle.net Balance.
How Much Do WoW Tokens Cost?
The price of a WoW Token varies depending on the region and is subject to change over time depending on supply and demand. As of writing, the approximate prices are:
