Blizz seems to be so thirsty for money (Dreadwake Mount, Blizzcon Prices) I'm guessing it won't be too long before they start selling armor and weapons. Purchasing Elite Armor and Weapons for your class thru the shop.

Do you think that is a good idea or a bad one?
Awful idea.

I for one hope it is a line Blizzard never crosses.

One of the best things about WoW is it isn't a "pay-to-win" game.

but can PVP specifically have a way to purchase in-game gear for an in-game currency called "conquest" by chance?

Woah I'm glad you linked that.
I had no idea about that burning of teldrassil mousepad.
It looks sick I think might pick it up eventually tbh.

that murloc mug of +2 hand-eye coordination has saved me many a time in pvp.
Sure. Why not?

Do people unironically believe that there aren't players with expendable cash? There's a term used by business-people to describe the very few people who buy insanely expensive things to keep funding the game, they're called "whales." Considering how much we know that Blizzard doesn't care about the player base, I'm actually surprised this hasn't happened yet.

As for getting people to buy them? What exactly is the problem? I mean, people actually bought a boat that can't even float on water, what would be the problem of marketing buyable gear.

Ok, even I have to admit. This was the perfect response to an over the top passive aggressive jab @ blizz. Well played.

A horrible idea, I'll permanently unsub the first time that happens.


You get gear every time you buy a boost. It’s not terrific gear but it is gear for money.

Bye?
You can buy wow tokens, sell them for gold, and purchase high level gear on the AH right now.

What?? No Anduin statue?

Sigh. Horde bias confirmed.
As I only had one chance to get Azurite shoulders for my 118 mage, and got the chest piece thinking more shoulders would be offered. (None yet.) I would buy the stupid shoulders just to have armor.
Dreadwake is literally a free gift if you buy 6 months in bulk... PS: You can buy it with tokens and freeze your account if you quit between now and the 6 months being up.

That said, I will permanently quit and never come back if they start selling like iLvl 400 gear. Tokens are acceptable because it buys you 2 BoEs that the players control how much they're worth, not Blizzard. Gold isn't P2W, it's more P2Vanity.

I like how you went with Real Life gear over the 3 helms you sell in-game. Technically, you guys sell gear both in and out of game.
rofl, they already are. they sell the gold.

Sorry, but no. You're not able to 'freeze' your account if you purchase six months at once.

Just like you can't 'freeze' your account mid-month if you're paying monthly.

Iam surprised they haven’t sold full mog sets on the bnet store..... idk how good or bad that would be. Provided it was bnet exclusive, and not something that you Farm raids for.


I would be all for that if it is just replica sets with no stats that can be used while leveling.
