Selling runs/titles: Against TOS or no?

So... I'm in a HM progression guild that is interested in selling heroic dw titles/mounts for IRL money that is to be donated to charity and not to us. We are going to advertise it just as it is: for a set donation (not sure how much, thinking $100 or so) to a specific charity we will carry someone to the title. We don't want to do anything that will get us banned, however. Is this against TOS or no?

(Would really appreciate a blue response on this question)

Selling in game services for real life money is against the ToS.


Even if the money doesn't go to us?

Anything you offer ingame for real money is against the ToS.

I don't think it is.

But you'd have to be really really REALLY stupid to join those guilds.

That's a bit different, have not a clue what to say. I would lean closer to its a wrong, because the player is giving the guild RL money for guild perks (and raiding/status). Unless they use the money for fun things like the guild getting together in real life, but it just seems odd to me, to pay RL money to be in a guild.

I understand why its against TOS, but this is still kinda crappy. We were hoping to be able to put our raiding to use for a good cause. Meh.

Maybe have them do the donation and have them list a guild e-mail as the contact for confirmation? That should be a fair work around since they're donating to the cause directly, and then you're just helping them get the title.

yea, really what i was wondering is if we never touch the money directly if its still against TOS. based on what others are saying i think it might be. i wish i could get a blue response on this, but i doubt blizz will answer because they probably don't want to open up this conversation for debate and/or future issues.
