If you’re reading this then you are no doubt looking for a way to buy gold in World of Warcraft. Everyone wants their epics, the greatest flying mounts and most devastating weapons but buying your way to the top isn’t a smart idea for many reasons.
Blizzard Frowns On Buying Gold
Right on the main World of Warcraft website, Blizzard makes their stance on the illegal buying of gold offline known. Many of the companies that have gold for sale do so because they’re using hacked accounts or exploits in the game to allow them to acquire vast amounts of gold. Blizzard, the makers of World of Warcraft, have special staff to identify hacked accounts and exploits that are used in the illegal gold trade and put a stop to it as quickly as possible. Furthermore, if they discover that you are purchasing gold from one of these illegal entities, your account can be banned and all your hard work ended in the blink of an eye.
Gold Selling Companies Can Be Shady
Let’s say you decide to ignore the advice of the people who made the game and risk it. Many of the companies who are selling this gold are based in Eastern European countries and China where they pay people pennies a day to sit in front of computers to continuously crank out gold for their illegal activities. Once you actually decide to send money to one of these companies, do you have (a) any assurances you will get your gold and (b) you won’t be found out by Blizzard and wind up with a permanent ban on your account? It’s a dangerous business to get in and at the end of the day, there’s no safe way to buy WoW gold.
