I've personally never bought gold, but honestly it seems like a terrible thing to do, pointless to boot - I'd rather spend 1 hour on dailies than $30 on gold or whatever amount.
If i don't buy gold, can I get murky's tears in a vial... murloc tears really do fight the decaying process.
Okay, but when what happens when you don't have that hour to spend? What happens when the only time you really have to play is your normally scheduled raid times and maybe a half-hour or so to scavenge as much Saronite as you can to replace the ammo you've burned during that night?The incredible amounts of judgmental attitude that people towards this is sickening. Frankly, I wish Blizzard would just start selling it themselves, that way people without time to earn it via dailies and with enough moral clout to not be AH scumlords can actually subsist.
I always buy gold, in huge amounts, for no reason at all.I disregard your advice.
Or become an AH "scumlord." I have 12k gold on my scumlord right now and it's because I spend 10-15 minutes every other day buying and selling stuff. If I do any dailies on my main, it's cooking and JC daily and maybe the fishing daily if it's in the sewer.As a casual player who MIGHT raid one night a week, your idiotic post isn't going to influence me one bit. I've managed to show up to my raids fully stocked and ready to go, and I've never considered buying gold. I know buying gold could get my account suspended or banned, but that's not the reason I won't buy gold. I won't buy it because it encourages account theft, plain and simple.
There's really no reason to buy gold, making money is ridiculously easy. Spend the 30 minutes doing dailies can net a couple hundred gold easily if you do the right ones.Not to mention having vast quantities of gold isn't needed. You may WANT that motorcycle, but it's not needed.
Hmmm ... Perfect World handles this by selling boutique currency via RMT ... and then allowing players to sell boutique currency on the AH.Players who want fancy mounts or clothes can buy $50 worth of in-game cash at a retail store ... or they can buy that cash at the AH by farming.They don't have a gold-farmed spam problem, since the game owner simply undercuts them. And using RMT to over-power a character is limited since you can only buy vanity items and some mats with Real Money tokens ... if too many people sell real money at the AH, its value in game gold goes down.
Blizzard (or Wowhead) needs to make a "Don't Copy That Floppy!" themed video about buying gold (or not doing it, rather).
