WoW Token will allow you to trade gametime for gold [Updated]

Whether you have too much gold or too little gold in World of Warcraft, the WoW Token is here to help. Much like systems we’ve seen in other MMOs — EVE Online has PLEX, WildStar has C.R.E.D.D. — the WoW Token is an in-game item that will allow players to exchange gametime for gold. You can buy tokens from the in-game store for real money and then sell them on the auction house for the current market value. For players who have lots of in-game gold but not much cash, this means they can pay for their subscriptions with gold — while players who have cash, but are short on gold (or perhaps the time required to make it) can trade their real world money for in-game gold. WoW Tokens will be worth 30 days of gametime, and though Blizzard has not yet announced a price for them yet, we’re guessing it will be in the range of current monthly subscription costs.

This new system will be making its way to WoW in an upcoming (but unspecified) patch — perhaps 6.2. VentureBeat reports it will be in patch 6.1.2. Until then, all we can do is speculate about how this will impact the in-game economy. Check out Blizzard’s WoW Token info and FAQ for all the details
