Originally available for 30,000 Gold, the Tokens are already significantly lower in price.
Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft received the new Tokens system yesterday which allowed players to purchase game time either through gold (earned in-game) or with real world money at $20. The Tokens were to be sold through the Auction House at a starting price of 30,000 Gold and would fluctuate depending on demand.
A day later, the Tokens have already depreciated quite severely in value. After starting at 30,000 Gold, it’s now possible to pick up Tokens for 22,502 Gold. This is according to WoW Token Info which is keeping track of the rates for Tokens at a constant pace. It’s possible that players purchased the Tokens for real world money and then sold them off rapidly to amass a strong supply of Gold. This caused an influx in Tokens, reducing the overall value for one at the same time.
Expect the market to react accordingly though and players to purchase Tokens in anticipation for the rates to go up again. Stay tuned for more information on the same over the coming weeks.
