Like one of those strange infomercials you see about exchanging your unwanted gold for ‘dollar dollar bills’, World of Warcraft players will now be able to trade their unwanted gold for game-time – or vice-versa – between one another courtesy of the new WoW token.

If this idea’s pricked your ears and opened your eyes, listen on while I tell you everything you need to know to make money fast! utilise this nifty new item!

Firstly, access the in-game shop to spend your heard-earned (real-life) coinage on a shiny new WoW Token, then sell the thing at the Auction House for other hard-earned (not real-life) gold – at the current market value, of course. When a player decides to purchase a WoW Token from the Auction House for gold, the WoW Token becomes Soulbound, meaning the player can redeem aforementioned WoW Token for 30 days worth of playing time. As a famous meerkat once said, ‘Simples’.

The WoW Token sure looks like a good idea, heck, it might even be the greatest idea ever (said with my best overly-enthusiastic American infomercial impression), but players will have to wait for the release of the upcoming patch to see just how great an idea it really is. Until then, check out the Blizzard Blog here for answers to all your FAQs regarding the item, then start polishing up your pennies.
