Do WoW Tokens change how you play? When the WoW Token first launched, I immediately cashed in my gold to buy as much subscription time as possible.

WoW Token and speculation Let's assume you have a ton of gold. Let's say you stroll by the auction house and you see that the WoW Token has dropped to around 20,000 gold (in the US it often is below this, in the EU not as of yet) and you decide hey, I've got a ton of gold, I'll buy a year's worth of tokens and so you do. You dump 240,000 gold at the AH, redeem a bunch of tokens and bam, you're paid up for a year.

And there's no reason you shouldn't - that's why the token exists, after all.What I find interesting is to consider all the side ramifications of this deal.
