Let’s assume I’m eager to return to World of Warcraft and for the initial investment I’ll need the standard cdkeys to create a full account. At the same time, I would check out the current price per gold for an estimate. Lowest gold price selling at G2G Marketplace
Price Per Gold : US $0.000855 (current price – 27th January 2014)
The standard game cdkey is going to cost me US $12.39 (current price – 27th January 2014) for the World of Warcraft Classic, The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm and 30 days play time. In order to recover my start-up cost, I’ll need to gather at least 14,492 gold, based on the current market price. Gold prices often fluctuates from time to time, so it is advisable to check the marketplace on daily basis.
Farming gold in World of Warcraft is quite easy and the main point here is to farm ‘smart’. There are plenty of useful guides and map locations out there to speed up your gold farming process.
The prepaid card is priced at US $24.99, (current price – 27th January 2014) which means I will need to gather up 29,229 gold for the 60 days subscription. It’s do-able and not impossible at lower levels, however, it will be much easier when your character is at maximum level cap, geared and prep for raids or dungeons. For gold making guide, Tarou offers the best for World of Warcraft.
You could prioritize on getting your time card first instead of recovering your standard cdkey investment, whichever option that suits your liking. Within 4-5 months, you should be able to recover everything you had paid for the game initially and the extra gold will translate into profits. On top of that, you could use your new found income to finance your game subscription! How cool is that? Definitely worth the time and effort if you ask me.
Bear in mind that every single thing in the game is gold, from thrash items to crafted items, drops from creatures, materials etc. Rule of the thumb, save most of the gold for your next time card and the rest goes towards your character’s progression.
After all, you are playing the game for entertainment, for visual stimulation and consider that side income as a bonus for playing the game.
