When you first think about it, buying World of Warcraft gold with real money might sound like a good idea, its just a few dollars per 1000 gold isn’t it? And with it, you can buy item to make your character better, getting that achievement or leveling an profession. TBC WoW Gold has some nice tips on this.
However, I do not recommend buying World of Warcraft gold for real money. Why?
There are many dangers that comes when you buy World of Warcraft gold. The account you’re buying from can be an hacked account, in which case the risk of getting banned increases significantly. There are many scams out there, many of the gold sites have keyloggers on them and care about money over your security. Some of the gold selling sites are however respectable and trustable, but Blizzard still have an excellent system for tracking gold sellers/buyers and they dont hesitate to lock/ban your account, I’ve been banned for transferring gold from my account to a friends before an realm transfer, which got my account locked. My friend got locked for sending gold to his alt character (True story!)
As I said before, keyloggers and spyware can be on some of the irresponsible sites, so you might end up getting hacked by the very people you intended to buy gold from. Keyloggers are malicious trojans that record every button you press on your computer, such as your World of Warcraft Account name/Password and send it to the person that you got it from. They can also gain acces to your financial and credit card information, your Facebook/hotmail password and everything that you do on your computer. You can’t even imagine the chaos in your life, as well on your World of Warcraft Account. If your account gets hacked they will use it to farm and sell gold, and will of course take all your existing items/gold. Another risk when buying World of Warcraft gold is that you might not even receive the gold you paid for, this happens surprisingly often. The sellers are far away, anonymous and well aware that buying World of Warcraft gold is against the ToS and will lead to you getting banned, so you can’t really complain to blizzard.
If you get busted with buying gold you will most likley get suspended, and therefore losing long days of hard work in game will be lost. Buying gold with real money might be an easy way to get “rich quick” in World of Warcraft, but its illegal, immoral, bannable and stupid. Instead of buying World of Warcraft gold with real money try using your cash to buy gold guides instead, this is in my opinion much more effective and 100% legal.You will not get keylogged, hacked or suspended with these guides. You won’t be an victim of identity theft and spend long hours trying to get back your financial information. There are no shortcuts in World of Warcraft, just working strategies. Take advice of the best gold makers and buy their guides, I own some of these myself and I highly remmend them. So if you came here thinking buying gold is the right way, I hope I changed your mind.
