When you play World of Warcraft or any other MMORPG, there is always the temptation to buy gold or whatever currency is used in the game. There are merchants all over that do sell you gold at a very cheap price making it fairly easy to justify doing so. Should you buy WOW gold or should you avoid it?
What's the big problem with gold in World of Warcraft?
As you play the game, you might have noticed that prices seem to always go up and up. The price of linen cloth, for example, over the last few years is significantly more. The reason is that everyday thousands of new signets of gold enters into the money supply as people play the game on each server. Eventually things cost more due to inflation.
Don't fall into the time and money trap.Many will state that the system is unfair because of this inflationary money supply that makes it necessary to buy gold to keep up with the rising cost of goods. Not everyone can play all day everyday so spending some money will save them time as they will have the gold they need when they need it, like now.
There are a few problems with this strategy. First of all, if you get caught, you can lose your account. Second, you are paying people who play all day long. In a way, you are adding to the inflation problem you are trying to fight by buying, just making it a bigger problem.Learn to make your own gold by playing the game fairly.
What you could focus on is learning how to make your own gold within the game. There are auction house techniques that don't take hours and hours where you can make hundreds of signets of gold in profit in short periods of time. At higher levels, there is so much easy gold to be made that you could just focus on leveling up rather than buying gold.
There is a great temptation to buy gold while playing World of Warcraft. Just know that this is a bad idea and how it can hurt you and the economy in the game.
