Following Blizzard's announcement that Destiny 2 would be exclusively available via the Blizzard app, caused prices of WoW Tokens to reach an all-time high in both regions.

The last time we witnessed WoW TokenWoW Token prices spiking was when Blizzard launched the WoW Token to Battle.net Balance exchange.

Europe

Token prices are slowly going down, but in Europe they spiked at 251,000 Gold for a single token.

North America

America didn't see such a dramatic increase. Just a little above 140K Gold for one token.

To stay up to date with latest prices, don't forget to follow WoWTokenNA for North America or WoWTokenEU for Europe.

I figured the rise in price was due to the Destiny2 announcement but don't understand the logic. To the best of my knowledge we won't be able to buy anything Destiny related with Battlenet balance.

You can buy the game using your blizz bux. I was going to comment how I liked that prices have already bottomed back out to normal 110k but they jumped back up to 120.

They did announce that you can buy the game with blizz account, so that is why people went crazy.

Honestly they need to make a new token entirely for account balance and have wow tokens a whole separate currency. Because the prices are getting out of hand. I, as a strictly wow only player shouldn't have to pay insanely high token prices all because tokens can be used as currency for other games.

It's insanely unfair. I barely make just enough to buy a token because I don't want to burn myself out of wow. I raid mythic 3 nights a week and wanna play some alts. I don't grind gold. And i cannot afford they extra $15 a month right now. I don't play the AH, because I play the game to have FUN. Not grind gold.

As someone who uses WoW gold to finally buy the mount and battle pet I've always wanted, full Blizz games, and the occasional HotS skin,  I am absolutely against this idea.

I think the main problem with this would be a supply and demand increase. If you did split the tokens up, you'd have a large portion of the players that buy token for bnet balance taken out of the consumption pool. Therefore, the people selling tokens would want to sell tokens to where they can make the most gold. Therefore, the supply of WoW only tokens would probably go down thereby increasing the price of said tokens. I could be completely wrong, but my opinion is it might do more harm than good.

I can definitely feel your pain, though. I don't do any mythic raiding, but I am constantly doing missions for gold, farming, etc. because I pay for my account and my wife's account via WoW tokens. It's gotten increasingly more difficult in the last six months.

If you don't mind a very slight early on time investment. Get a character (or two works even better) exalted with the tillers and exclusively plant snakeroot. With engineering you can pop out a skygolem every month that sells between 50-100k gold depending on your server.  Thanks to my friends changing realms every expansion and me being too cheap to transfer characters I have multiple engineers on multiple servers and they've made token buying much easier. Though admittedly it was much nicer when tokens sold for 60-90k, 110k was less nice, this 140 flux is going to throw a wrench in buying tokens every month.

Yeah just saw that...guess I didn't read enough due to not having any interest in Destiny.

Or we could go back to recent history when we couldn't buy game time for gold at all.  The injustice of a market actually driven by availability.

Maybe getting more game time for a token would be good enough

It would not feel so overwhelming if each token was two months or one and a half month.

      The worldwide release of the pre-patch has not gone as smoothly as Blizzard would have liked and the Communities feature had to be completely disabled in Europe for now.
      Check out the list of known issues for problems that emerged after launch.

      Hi everyone,

      So, as you’ve noticed, today’s patch release has not gone nearly as smoothly as we would have liked. We’re sorry for how this has affected the stability and playability of the game while these issues have been ongoing. This has obviously not been the launch that any of us wanted.

      That said, we want you to know that there are currently several teams of people working hard to get you back in Azeroth and enjoying the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch as quickly as possible. We’ll share more details in this thread when we can.

      Thanks for your patience,

      The World of Warcraft Team Blizzard's working on a fix to enable the WoW Communities feature in EU. The in-game and guild chat channels remain are still available for use.

      As we work to identify the cause of these issues, we will be temporarily disabling the World of Warcraft Communities feature. The in-game and guild chat channels will still be available for use. The Guild Calendar may also be missing events while we address these concerns.

      The patch is now live on EU, NA and AU servers, after some difficulties with offline realms and connectivity issues, so Blizzard have shared some known issues as well as some additional info on upcoming hotfixes for BoA legendary acquisition via Wakening Essences and the honor/prestige level changes.
      Known Issues (source)
      Hello all,
      Below is a list of known issues for patch 8.0.1. Please note that this list is not a complete depiction of what we're aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter more often. We'll try to keep this updated with trending issues when possible.
      General
      Mounts: Gladiator's Proto-Drakes do not display information on how to obtain mounts in journal.
      Sometimes when summoning a player as they change zones, the summon prompt will not appear.
      Stat & Spell Squish Impacts
      There are multiple issues with legacy spells & monsters scaling incorrectly.
      Dungeon and Raid
      Legacy Loot: Many raid creatures no longer drop gold.
      Highmaul: Highmaul bosses are not dropping the appropriate amount of gold when the raid is set to mythic.Dungeon Journal - Baradin Hold: There exists an option to view Baradin Hold in 10/25 man Heroic even though the difficulty does not exist.
      A Lua error may occur if you try viewing the dungeon journal from the bonus roll prompt while outside of the instance.
      Communities/Guilds/Groups/UI
      Communities will reference "Starter Edition" accounts as "Veteran Trial".
      Guild: Inviting players who are currently in your group to a guild may produce an assertion.
      Opening the Character Pane after equipping a newly acquired item on a character may result in a crash.
      Looting the corpse after a boss encounter while in a group may produce an assertion.
      Communities: Blank spaces will appear in Guild rosters if players have not logged in for multiple years.
      Players may be unable to whisper cross realm when selecting whisper from Communities UI.
      Compatibility
      DX12: Intel PSO caching issue with Intel unreleased driver.
      DX12: Crash may occur when game uses more GPU Memory than hardware allows.
      Performance on some GPUs while using DX12 is lower than DX11.
      And here are some previous tweets we already covered, so you're up to date on everything in case you missed it, featuring Allied Race unlock requirements, Brawler's Guild currency conversion and Mythic mounts:

      Well, no one has to to buy base WoW anymore, ever! Everything you need to do to play up until the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is an active subscription. No more battle chests and individual purchases, just pay that monthly fee and access the entire game as it is at the moment, with nothing missing until August 14th, when you'll have to buy BfA for the new content. Additional digital deluxe items from expansions are available at the Blizzard shop individually, but it's now easier than ever to jump into the game and just start playing through the six expansions and 110 levels!
      Recruit a Friend has also been updated:

      According to recent reports, all players who opens their Grand Challenger's Bounty this week will receive 1,000 Wakening Essences that can be used to purchase one specific Legendary item in the BfA pre-patch.
      In Patch 8.0.1, players can purchase specific Legendary items from Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran for 1,000 Wakening Essences each. You can now get Wakening Essences from World Quests and other Artifact Power sources. Legendaries will cease to work at level 116 in Battle for Azeroth. Some Legendary effects even stack with new talents. Check out our Patch 8.0.1 Survival Guide for more details!

      Here's an update from Blizzard:
      Blizzard (Source)
      Due to changes to the Mythic+ system in Battle for Azeroth, players will not receive their normal Mythic Cache loot and keystone this week. As this was unintended, we will be providing 1000 Wakening Essence as well as a Keystone in the Mythic Cache. If you have a problem looting the Mythic Cache, the keystone will be mailed to you and the wakening essences will be granted after logging in again.
      Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience!

      It seems Legion wasn't done with impressive boss kills. Just before the servers went down to usher in 8.0 and the new BfA systems, a group of 21 Discipline Priests took on the final two bosses of the expansion in Normal mode and won! They also downed Garothi Worldbreaker and Felhounds of Sargeras in Heroic, but fell short of Antoran High Command and the more difficult version of Aggramar. However, going back down to Normal, the Titan fell and it was on to the final boss of Antorus and Legion.
       
      You can check out a fully detailed description of the run by Mend of Spike Flail over on Wowhead, where he goes over the forming of the group, Heroic attempts and the kills themselves.
