If you are in Europe and were growing envious of the World of Warcraft fans who were buying and selling WoW Tokens in the US, your time is here. Blizzard is bringing them to you as we speak!
The official battle.net website has announced that the WoW Tokens are now going to be launched in Europe. If you are in the region, you will be able to purchase them starting today i.e. April 21, 2015 after 5PM CEST.
That being said, there are a few changes that have been made by Blizzard Entertainment in the way these tokens are going to work. For instance, there is a limit on how many you can purchase, and the in-game price as been changed to 35000 gold. Here’s an excerpt from the post:
The WoW Token will be available for 20 EUR (15 GBP) from the in-game Shop, and will be set at a starting price of 35,000 gold in the Auction House across the Europe 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 from the Shop to 10 within a 30-day period, and the limit on Tokens purchased for gold will be set higher—though keep in mind these limits may be adjusted over time.
They also added that when you buy a token from the shop it will be added to your account instantly but putting it up for auction could take some time.
When WoW Tokens were originally launched some time ago they lost almost 25 percent of their in-game value in just one day owing to overflow of supply in the market. Do you think putting up these limits is going to improve things for World of Warcraft fans?
