    Is it against ToS?

    To trade wow gold for diablo gold? I was asking too in trade and some asshole just whispers me and says "Against ToS. Reported" And insta-ignores me, so JW.

    Different games so yes as it's a ingame currency for a out of game item(diablo gold).
    If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength
    of the materials present in the object in question in comparison to your own mass volumetric density.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    Here is a simple answer to any question of this nature:

    Is the item you are trading WoW gold for A: Obtainable In world of Warcraft or B: Tradeable through the Auction House or Trade Window or awardable through the master looter function?

    If the answer to either of these questions is NO, Blizzard likely considers any exchange of WoW gold for said item to be against the TOS. It really is that simple.

    Yes, it is against the ToS.

    However there is absolutely nothing stopping you from giving gold to someone in WoW and them giving you gold in Diablo 3. Blizzard won't bat an eyelid. Doing this between friends, or people you know and trust is not a problem.

    When it does become a problem and can get you into trouble is if the other person is unhappy about it, or you are unhappy about it, and decide to get Blizzard involved (eg if you give them the WoW gold, then they don't give you the Diablo 3 gold and you write a ticket about it). Blizzard will in this case either just simply tell you they can't help you, and might even give you an official reprimand.

    It is also a problem if you are advertising it in trade.

    So, no the person who whispered you is not an asshole. They are quite correct.

    Actually, by how I read it the person was an asshole. Sounds like OP was just asking a question to see if it was against the TOS and instead of being helpful the guy whispers that he is reporting.

    Now if he was asking people to do the deed, then I'm wrong. Other than that, your response was pretty informative. I've traded/given in-game gold or items for stuff outside of the game, but only to friends who I trust. Nothing Blizzard can do about it and will not care, as long as it's done without incident.

    Yeah, I think it counts as trading in game currency for out of game currency or something like that so yea it's a rule breaker

    I could be wrong ofc, but the way I read it, the OP was trying spamming trade with requests to trade WoW gold for Diablo 3 gold, which is exactly the sort of thing that the "report spam" button is there for (which also automatically would have added the OP to his ignore list).

    At least the person who whispered him had the decency to tell him he was in violation of the ToS.

    I find it ironic you're unsure it is against ToS (it is) and then come here to call such person an "asshole". There is nothing "asshole" about what that person did.

    I report people who do things against ToS (like that stupid casino game) all the time. The primary reason is it isn't a secure transaction, plain and simple. So that means it creates drama, scams, etc. If one person gets away with it, others start doing it too, and sooner but later you got a dirty trade chat with all kind of scams and nonsense.

    Its like buying gold, just don't do it, and should you decide to do it at the very least don't do it with strangers. Since you were spamming trade, you were attempting to do it with strangers. You were caught in your attempt, and it is up to Blizzard to decide sanction.

    Forgive me if this too old of a thread to reply too, but I petitioned a GM for this question and this was my response:

    This is the latest response from Customer Support:
    Greetings ####### ,

    You are receiving this message in response to the help petition which you submitted regarding trading Diablo III gold for WoW gold. It isn't exactly against the EULA but it isn't a supported transaction so if something goes wrong you are on your own.

    If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us again.

    hmm even though you opened a old thread its still relevant even more so since you have confirmation that this is not against terms of service.
