You would not accumulate 100k gold from a few copper within a couple months. That is simply not possible. If you beleive it to be so then I would recomend you provide proof that a level one brand new character can make such an income in a couple of months. With no other source of income other then that characters own means as a level one. That includes no funding from an alt, main, friend, buying gold, etc.

Starting gear sells for 1c and some cloth may put you at a total of 70c maybe 1.2s(being generous here). Good luck creating 100k from that in a couple month time frame.
Stop being so thick. If you have copper on the AH to begin with doesn't mean you can't invest in other products as you accumulate more gold. Just sticking to copper or whatever would be ridiculous.

Who cares really this doesnt change much....

This is blizzards way of devaluing gold sellers while giving players another option to obtain pets. Anyone who thinks this is blizzard just selling gold is crazy. If they sold gold they would basically just be printing money in a sense and ruining the economy on most servers.

I would much rather pay 5-15k for a pet then 10$.

I was excited when i first saw this. I was thinking all the people who invest so much time into a game are finally going to get something out of it. Then i relized that this is just more stupidty. I do consider my self quite the hater of this game. I mean why the heck would you want to pay a fee to play a game online. Further more, you guys get so sucked into it thats all most do or talk about. I play my fair share of games but the time most have put in this game is crazy.
Get out and do something please. The type of people who play this game give the rest of us p.c. gamers a bad name. When i tell people i meet that i play computer games there like wow. Im say no do i look pasty white, over weight, or 12? always gets a laugh.

Im sorry but if anyone gives pc gamers a bad name its people that make comments like this.

I play wow and plenty of other games. Sure i could agree that there are people that get addicted and play nothing but wow but to classify all the millions of people playing as the same is pretty harsh. The fact that you think you are suddenly better then people that choose to enjoy a game like wow boggles my mind. Either way your arrogance and stupidity gave me a good laugh.

I wish there was a way to give negative rep.

Advice please
Auction house, that's all there is to it really.

Watch prices, pay close attention to things like new gems, enchants. If you see upcoming patches that change the way items are crafted, it can often mean free money.

Silly things like new vendor items being added, buy from a vendor for a few silver, put it on the AH for 15g or something. Buy items that are used during holidays when they're cheap, then put up on the AH during the holiday for 500% markup.

These are just minor examples, but the same principal applies, you just have to be smart and watch the prices.

Ironically you're the one that sounds 12 and gives us all a bad name. It's stupid, childish comments like this.

Oh, by the way, I'm 26. My fiancee is smoking hott, and I make 6 figures. I'm hardcore into sports, especially football. Other hobbies of mine include: wine, boating, riding my bike. I'm 5'11" and weigh about 175lbs. I also go to the gym everyday.

I also play WoW. And I'm not childish enough to care about what other people play and make stupid remarks them. We call that stereotyping. I like to stereotype people that have stupid immature avatars.

Doesn't really affect me. As someone said earlier, if people want to buy gold, they will buy it.
I've been buying it for a very long time now. Probably bought some 500 Euro worth of WoW gold.
I'd rather work for a day and then buy 100.000g than spend weeks in game farming that kind of money. I mean, I'm playing the game for my own entertainment, not to keep WoW economy in balance.
I spend cash on condoms, alcohol, cinema, etc, why should buying in game currency be any different? It's all fun and games.

As you say, it doesn't really affect a raider, except maybe that players can pay to be carried through content (common on the one server I played on).

The problem is that this is just the beginning.



I was thinking the other way around actually, make the shock announcement of gold selling in Diablo3 to test the water, then slowly impliment it in WoW after the zealots have defended/justified it to death.

Next will be something like buying the previous level of tier "for players who don't have the time to aquire gear for entry to current content".
lol, you're probably right.

I make a hefty sum playing WoW just fishing and playing the auction house. Fishing alone is worth about 1.6k/hr, and playing the auction house can yield variable results.

If anyone is interested in some pictures of cool auction deals etc, check out my pics.
