Blizzard Entertainment has implemented an interesting new option for WoW Tokens, the currency in World of Warcraft which can be used to purchase or sell game time.
Instead of redeeming that WoW Token for game time though, you can now use it for $15 of Battle.net credit (or your regional equivalent, which is broken down here). That can then be used to purchase Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 or even Overwatch content.
That means Loot Boxes. Lots and lots of Loot Boxes. So you could grind for gold in World of Warcraft, buy a WoW Token from the Auction House and then redeem it for credit to pick some up. The problem is finding Tokens, since they’re sold by real players and you can bet the prices have gone up following the latest change.
