wow WoW Token Rollout (Americas) - April 7

5 posts in this topic

Following the announcement in early March that World of Warcraft would be receiving an in-game subscription currency and patch contents in patch 6.1.2 to allow their purchase and sale, the first region to see WoW Tokens in-game will be the Americas region, effective April 7 when WoW server maintenance ends.

 

You can read about the initial announcement here, and further details that were released late last month here. The new information in today's announcement was the initial gold price - 30,000 gold - as well as a 10 tokens per 30 days purchase limit. Blizzard posted all of the following caveats:

 

The WoW Token will be going live in the Americas region (North America, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand) on April 7 when maintenance concludes, at approximately 10 a.m. PDT. The WoW Token will be available for $20 USD/$25 AUD from the in-game Shop, and will be set at a starting price of 30,000 gold in the Auction House across the Americas region. From that point forward, the gold price will automatically fluctuate based on player supply and demand. To start we’ll be limiting the number of Token purchases to 10 within a 30-day period, but this limit may be adjusted over time. While Tokens will be available immediately from the Shop, please note that there may be a delay before Tokens put up for sale on the Auction House become available for purchase with gold.

 

We’ll announce additional regional details closer to the launch of the WoW Token in other regions.

 

Americas players - will you be purchasing WoW Tokens starting tomorrow? Buying or selling? Let us know what kind of results you see in-game.

 

Update: Here is Blizzard's video explaining the WoW Token system:

 

 

It's Token time, friends. Will you ever have to pay real money for your WoW subscription again? Will you be buying gold like it's going out of style?

I honestly don't know how I feel about this. I might attempt to sell one in the auction house to see if it actually sells. I think some of it will also depend on the server you play on as well. I suppose it could be a good thing in some ways, but I personally don't like the idea of someone's financial status giving them an edge. I suppose we will see.

It'll be region specific, not server specific, so all of the NA and OCE realms will share an AH for the tokens.

Also you are GUARANTEED the current market price when you put it up so you don't need to worry about IF it will sell, just When it will... the very short video that blizz put out explains it all very well

      Better stats and scaling in PvE, worse scaling in PvP and more changes are live.
      Update 2: Today's hotfixes didn't bring any additional info on the procc rate buff, but did offer some insight from the devs as to why the changes happened in the first place. You can check them out here.

      Update: It seems the procc rate was buffed as well and we'll find out the exact details in the hotfix notes later today.

      After the big announcement about the Artifact Knowledge cap being reduced, today we're getting a bit of an offset (or consolation prize for some) as the "infinity trait" aka Concordance of the Legionfall just got buffed, at least in PvE. The changes are up already on live servers.
      Placeholder for tweet 867444216745439232 It did not get the base buff PvP, however, and the scaling actually got nerfed:
      Placeholder for tweet 867444363655233536 We also got some clarifications on when exactly the PvP tuning comes into effect:
      Placeholder for tweet 867445986959818752 And in the most recent update, we found out the procc rate was buffed as well, but we'll be getting more details later:

      A very short list today, with just 1 item on the agenda: the Concordance changes. Unfortunately we didn't get any more detailed info on the exact proc rate increase, but we did get some insight into the overall changes from the devs.
      May 24 (source)
      Artifacts
      Concordance of the Legionfall Chance to activate slightly increased. Now grants 4,000 Strength, Agility, Intellect, or Versatility at rank 1 (was 2,000). Additional ranks now increase this value by 300 per rank (was 200). Effects are now reduced by 50% in PvP situations. Developers’ Note: While additional ranks of Concordance of Legionfall are intended to have a low impact, the trait was overall weaker than it needed to be. With these changes, it provides a stronger up-front benefit, and very slightly more value for Artifact Power spent past the first rank. These changes also result in an overall nerf in PvP, where we are continuing to monitor its performance. Previous hotfixes (May 22nd).

      Mione is back at it and this time it was the Emerald Nightmare's own Cenarius that went down vs. the lone Vengeance Demon Hunter. Pretty damn impressive since EN is technically still the same tier as the current endgame raid, Nighthold (even though it's waay behind on item levels). The fight itself is pretty exhilarating as well, as the health on the DH keeps flying up and down the whole time!
       
      And here's the armory link for the 918 ilev Demon Hunter.
