wow WoW Token Prices Reached an All-Time High

12 posts in this topic

28412-wow-token-to-battlenet-balance-liv

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.

      Seat of the Triumvirate is a new 5-player dungeon located in Mac'Aree (Argus). It has four bosses and we did a run on Heroic difficulty.
      The dungeon is also available on Mythic difficulty and has the following achievements:
      Darker Side - Defeat L'ura in Seat of the Triumvirate with all party members affected by Crushing Darkness on Mythic Difficulty. Heroic: Seat of the Triumvirate - Defeat L'ura in Seat of the Triumvirate on Heroic difficulty or higher. Let it All Out - Have Darkfang destroy 4 Sealed Void Caches using Shadow Pounce in Seat of the Triumvirate on Mythic Difficulty. Mythic: Seat of the Triumvirate - Defeat L'ura in Seat of the Triumvirate on Mythic difficulty. Welcome the Void - Bring Urjad from the void realm using Void Tear, then defeat him and Zuraal the Ascended in Seat of the Triumvirate on Mythic Difficulty. The new achievements weren't added to Glory of the Legion Hero, so they won't be mandatory if you plan to get Reins of the Leyfeather Hippogryph after Patch 7.3 goes live.
      Bosses
      Zuraal the Ascended Zuraal represents the Shadowguard's first success at creating a void-infused broken whose mind has not fallen into madness. A renowned brawler in his past life. Zuraal uses his newfound dark strength to empower his attacks and decimate his foes. Saprish The ever-tactical Saprish deploys the forces of the Shadowguard with calculated precision. Though a skilled commander and strategist, Saprish relishes taking a direct hand in battle. He turns his foes' weaknesses against them, leaving his vulnerable adversaries at the mercy of his voracious pets. Viceroy Nezhar Like others of his ilk, Viceroy Nezhar is obsessed with harnessing the power of the Void to serve his own ambitions. Drawn to the Seat of the Triumvirate by the immense darkness emanating from deep within. Nezhar will stop at nighing to claim it for his own. Given the viceroy's experiments at infusing vessels with the power of shadow, the implications of what he might accomplish on Argus are dire indeed. L'ura When Velen and his followers fled Argus aboard the Genedar, the naaru L'ura stayed behind to buy the draenei time to escape. Kil'jaeden, enraged by this betrayal, ordered the wounded naaru sealed away in the Seat of the Triumvirate. Over the long millennia that passed, L'ura fell from Light to Void. Her elegant song of courage and hope became a shadowy dirge of despair, luring those seeking to lay claim to her power. Quests
      Velen sends you to recover The Crest of Knowledge from L'ura at some point during your Mac'Aree experience. The quest reward is an ilvl 900 back. Loot
      Heroic difficulty - 845+ Mythic difficulty - 865+

      In Method's WF interview we find out there were 10+ undocumented nerfs on KJ, a few on Avatar, we hear about class balance and a lot more!
      Just as Exorsus got the World 2nd on Kil'jaeden, some of the Method raiders took some time to do an interview with, well, the Method site! Among other things we find out the details on the huge number of undocumented changes to Kil'jaeden that happened before the kill, as well as a few on Avatar. We also get to hear about the class balance in Mythic Tomb and how Rogues were the stars for the final two bosses, as well as a whole bunch of other details for the raid and KJ in particular! Here are a few snippets:

      Check out the full interview with a lot more details over at Method.gg.

      Update: Added nerdscreams video.
      And the second kill is finally here! Exorsus have defeated Kil'jaeden 7 days, 5 and a half hours after Method's World First kill and fended off the Chinese guilds that were pressuring their silver medal spot. After 962 wipes this will come as a huge relief for the Russian guild, as they've also had wipes as low as 0.2% in the last couple of days and been pretty frustrated with some of the issues on the fight. Guild GM Alveona even promised a big post about the whole issue after the race is done, so we have that to look forward to!
      Now it's down to Alpha and Style War to fight over the final top 3 spot, if one of the other 25 guilds on Kil'jaeden don't pull an upset and get there first! We also have Method's kill video to look forward to, which should arrive either after the 3rd kill or when one of the streaming guilds gets close to a kill. And there's Method's  big interview coming today where we'll find out more specifics of the fights!
      We're still waiting for the killshot and will be adding it in later.
