    Did you ever buy gold?

    Did you ever buy gold with real money from those gold-selling websites?

    no, and dont see why anyone would, Gold has allways been silly easy to make.
    From flipping runecloth for rep hand-ins in vanilla, to the ore Shuffle of Cata / Mop.

    There has never been a reason to buy gold.

    Why on earth would I give a site that steals accounts in order to sell something they do not own my credit card number? Do people actually not understand they are giving thieves another source of income when they do so?
    when all else fails, read the STICKIES.

    Never done it, never will..
    I have, however, been "hacked" once, so I havefirst hand experience with, where the gold sellers get their gold from..

    Also, I will promptly report anyone I know buying gold.

    Nope never, but I'd like a RMAH:ish place to sell the gold I make in-game, would be nice to be able to pay for the subscription without using IRL-money tbh (especially as I dont really play the game anymore, I just hang around and do some dailies + play AH). I kinda like the EVE-idea with Plex, go go Bliz!

    I have bought gold about 3-4 years ago when I was new in the game. Used paypal and it never was any problems.

    Later I have ofc understood that buying gold will lead to more players being hacked and more bots etc and other nasty things in the game so I will never do it again. But back then, this was in tbc, when I could not afford a 100% ground mount it didnd't feel wrong in any way

    never could figure out how to spend all the gold I have/had. Have sold gold directly to guild members before, especially two guys who seemed to have an endless need for it

    My friend bought some at the end of Vanilla with my Paypal. Neither of us were ever hacked.

    Never bought any myself.

    Thinking like I do is fine, but saying it like I do is not.

    Once in Vanilla, worked out fine. I see it different today, and would never do it again. Kinda defeats the whole purpose of the game.

    Never for WoW, or most any other game I've played, the only exception to the rule was Final Fantasy XI, and while now I regret it, at the time it felt like the only way to keep up as the economy was out of control. I other games, even if I did't have the gold to buy what I wanted, it didn't feel like getting it was such a massive impossibility.

    I haven't personally, but I have been given half of 1k gold bought by a close friend.

    This was in Vanilla and it paid for our mounts. I knew he bought it, and I took it happily.

    Doesn't mean I'd do it now though
