WoW Crackdown in May: 30k Banned
So, the news is that 30,000 accounts being banned in May for gold-farming led to a loss of 30 million gold across all realms. That only comes to 1,000 gold per banned account on average. This number causes a bit of an eyebrow raise for being fairly low, in my opinion. Considering the amount of work needed to make 1,000 gold without breaking the rules, what are players doing that is so much more efficient than just levelling up and constantly running Dire Maul or Strat? I would probably only count myself as being a casual player when it comes to playing time, and I believe that with a realignment of priorities I could make 1,000 gold with relative ease. I’m interested in hearing from other high level players and what their own hourly gold rates are when they start taking the WoW economy seriously, without trying to cheat it.
