Common Problems

  • I can't purchase a WoW token from auction house.
  • Can I pool gold from multiple realms to buy a token?
  • How do I purchase a WoW Token?

To purchase a WoW Token for game time, click the Game Time tab when visiting the in-game Auction House. Once you click the Buyout button and confirm your purchase, your WoW Token will be mailed to you.

Note: Mail containing WoW Tokens will not expire.

After you've purchased a Token from the Auction House, right-click the item in your inventory to apply one month of game time or $15 of Blizzard Balance to your account.

If you've run out of game time but you have a Token in a character’s inventory, you'll be able to consume that Token from the character select screen and refresh your game time on any WoW game account connected to your Blizzard account.

If your game time has expired and you can't access your characters, you can purchase and consume a WoW Token directly from the character select screen with the Reactivate Now button. While each character on a realm will contribute gold to the price of the Token, you may receive an error if this would zero out the gold for any character. Due to the constant fluctuation of the token prices, if you only have just enough gold to purchase the token, you must log into the game to make the purchase.

Note: It is not possible to buy a token for gold if you have a token that was purchased with real money in your inventory or in the auction house. You have to sell that token first.
