ROFLMAO
You can actually get gold for free, in-game... if you get off your lazy
backside,
and earn it.

Seems a little harsh.

I also considered buying gold and don't think of myself as an "idiot". I've
never used cheats in games that I've played but I did contemplate buying
gold for WoW in order to get a mount.

I'm already paying for game time and I don't want to waste my limited game
time grinding away to get enough gold for a mount. I wouldn't consider
constantly buying gold to equip a character but by the time I got to lvl 40
(a long time) I was thoroughly sick of walking and regarded having a mount
as a necessity if I was going to continue playing.
A quick web-search revealed places selling 100G for around $10 and I figured
it would take me close to a month of my limited gaming time to get this, so
it was worth it. Frankly, the only thing stopping me was the possibility of
sanctions from Blizzard.

I understand that limited gold is "part of the game" but I found I never had
more than 20 gold at any one time up to level 40 and I wasn't willing to
wait another 10-20 levels to be able to afford a mount (which seemed
unlikely since the cost of spells was going up as I leveled). I realize I
could have adopted a more income generating game-style but I have a job in
real life, I'm not paying Blizzard so that I can get another one in the
virtual world.

I have always frowned on game cheats but, in the circumstances, I regarded
this as a relatively harmless one. I realize that the existence of people
farming gold to sell does affect the game world somewhat and that buying
from them perpetuates the practice but I don't I think this has anything
like the impact of other cheats. It doesn't, for example, affect public game
play in the same way that people using map hack in D2 affected party play in
public games.

As it happens, a friend was good enough to help me out with the necessary
gold so I didn't have to buy it.

Does that mean I'm not an idiot after all?

It also lessens the value of the items and could led to extreme cases
where newbies have to but gold to be able to compete with other
players.

I completely agree on that point.

to re-quote myself

"Its one of 2 sorts of players


1>Those who have brought gold from farmers so can afford it.
2>lvl60s who are twinking an alt or low lvl guild mate."

But remove the gold buyers from the above group of people will help
remove some of the problem.

No, it comes down to that fact people are jealous of others and don't
want to earn the rewards themselves but want a fast track.

The amount of time you can play in a week is irrelevant. Whether it
takes 100 hours over a few weeks to make lvl 40 or a few months it
still takes the same amount of play time.

The poster just doesn't want to put the play time in to get the
reward and wants a quick fix. If he goes out and buy gold is devalues
the game for everyone that does put the time in. Pure laziness on his
behalf.

No. To be fair to all players, no transfer of goods & golds
what-so-ever. High level twinking an low level alt or guild mate gives
unfair advantage to other who do not have the same connection.

1) & 2) are two opposite of the same coin: to get maximum gain out of
minimum effort. 1) based on money, 2) based on time.

If you can not stop players from ganking, then you can't stop player
from being farmers. This is unfortunately part of MMORPG.

So it is okay to farming for one's toons and one's guild mate then?

If that's the case, I will create a new guild

Guild - Elitist
$50 USD to join
Once you're a member, send in your request on what you want and we will
have it fulfill within a RL weeks time if not sooner.


Golds is meaningless once you get beyond 40th level. Even without those
gold farmers, you still have bored high level char who wanted to outfit
their alt with best gear and jacked up AH price.

Getting rid of gold farmers do not necessary prevent devaluation of
gold or improve game plays for everyone else. Becuase you have to get
rid of gankers, grinders, and power-levelers too. Otherwise, they rob
the enjoyment of the game for others.

If you're the purist who never visited AH, then this entire issue
shouldn't matter to you since gold is not your concern. You will be
saving your gold since level 1 that by the time you reach 40, you will
have more than enough to pay for the mount. So, why this conerning you?

And if you're not the lazy type, then so what if gold-farmer cleared
out all the nodes within the entire region, you can always travel to
another. And if you complained about gold farmers, then you're too lazy
to even to travel to another region.

I've found that Dubai, UAE and Haifa, Israel are the best places to get
inexpensive gold. But I think the market is near topping out on gold.

Still comes down the a case of people that have the time and people that
don't.
I have no problem farming gold, but it is a boring and time consuming thing
to do so.

WoW is a time intensive game, I work 40hrs a week and play. but i am in a
unique position in being up there with the best equip`ed of people, and have
most things for all 3 of my lev 60`s, but in doing so I have had to give up
my life for the past 3 months.

My point is some / a lot of people have more real life money from working
than they do, time for which to play. I am all up for selling for real
cash, but at the same time I know this is against Blizzard ToC agreement.

Maybe the people shouting Idiot are the ones that are either at School /
unemployed or like me have no life... bit more understanding is required,
not everyone has the time to waste like others.

This has already happend with people being able to shove money to
their secondary characters. Some of the prices people are willing to
pay for low level items in the AH are way to high for the chars who
can actually use them.

Magine - For the same reasons I looked at buying gold in bulk. I actually
work a real job 6 10's, have a wife, 4 kids and spend time with them and
can't be a WoW addict sitting in front of a screen for multiple hours on
end, day after day. So based on my free time's value versus what someone
(who bought gold of of other players) is willing to swap to me "play time"
for currency, I find it equitable. Less time I have to farm and hunt gold
more time I can do quests and groups for fun.

As for the comments "Not Allowed" hell a Blizzard Employee at my last
paintball event directed me to the best prices. Now offically they will do
something if they can prove it but let us face facts, unless a vendor gets
busted, and a court order releases all his documents then a court order
releases Paypals and then IF it can some how be linked to your account....
Besides, its a game, ban it, they loose my monthly fee, I get more free time
untill I find the next thing to catch my eye on Fry's shelf.

I made 70g of my mount money from lvl 37 to 39 auctioning bars from iron
and mithril I had mined in the badlands. It's not hard, you just have to
concentrate on making money.

I think the problem isn't in your motivation in buying gold, but what it
encourages in others, in order to get the gold to sell you. It's kind of
like smoking pot. I don't give a damn that you're getting high (though I
reserve the right to have no respect for you if you do), I have a problem
with you giving the money to drug dealers and cartels, financing the murders
and other illegal activities that they conduct in the process of getting you
your drugs. That's kind of how I see buying gold.

Not to me it doesn't.

Someone pays money to buy a game to play.
They then pay a monthly fee to play the game.
They follow up with spending money in order to *not* play the game.

The first two are perfectly reasonable. It's when they toss in the
third item that they earn the label of "idiot".

In terms of game time played, on average it takes everyone about the
same time and effort to reach mount capability. But you think you
should get one with X /played, while others take 4X /played?

Tough. Buying gold is lame and that's that. I don't have all the time in the
world to play, but I'd rather spend longer enjoying the game rather than buy
my way up to being the best of the best. I just can't see the satisfaction
in it.

I have a wife and kid and a full time job. Hell, sometimes it's more than
full time, and sometimes I work away from home. Some weekends I'm away with
the race team. So it means that I don't have a huge amount of time to devote
to WoW. It doesn't mean I've ever considered buying gold.

It just means that it takes me a little longer to do everything; quests,
farming, whatever. But it doesn't mean that my toon goes without. I've still
bought some decent gear from the AH. Questing provides plenty of drops, cash
and experience. And an hour a week grinding the lions in south Arathi
Highlands (I'm lvl 35) provides plenty leather for me to make stuff to sell
at AH and keep my skill level up. I also get a few green and even the odd
blue drop from them, all of which go on the AH.

I've currently got 23g. Not a huge fortune I know, but because I can see how
much is coming in now and how much is likely to come in as I level up I'm
confident that I'll have enough for my mount just by playing the game.

What I'm saying is I'm enjoying the game enough to not want to shortcut
anything. If you do, maybe this is the wrong game for you. I grew out of
cheats when I was a kid with a ZX Spectrum...

Prevent? Of course it doesn't. Gold farmers are only one factor
for the devaluation of the currency. But I still have no idea what
you want to tell us. Gold farmers are no problem because devaluation
happens anyway? Gold farmers are ok, because there are other factors
that affect the value of the in game currency? Of course there are
other factors, but this doesn't change the fact that gold farmers
are bad for the economy.

I doubt he is. I've seen this line of reasoning used before (especially
with L2 and PKers), and it never fails to piss me off. I pay to play this
game just like they do. Why should I have to go somewhere else just because
someone's being utterly selfish?
