    They have been selling powerleveling via "recruit a friend" for ages. Buy a battlechest, powerlevel your alters. Same with battle pets leveling. Line not crossed yet. Also, is a datamined thing, just like the third spec.

    Also, I thought the OMG they sell heroic gear for €€€ was crossed via buy gold -> go BMAH.

    Unless WoW is going free to play, this is not something I'm willing to tolerate.

    Ugh, just what WoW needs - a Cartel Market.

    Honestly not surprised though. With all the little "web browser" features they have been adding, it was only a matter of time.

    Still, I hate the idea of an in-game store in my MMOs.

    Lovely little hard on you have for me though.
    You really should get the fuck over yourself life would be easy'er if you did.

    Also last time I checked I can quote anyone I want in any thread sorry that you didn't like my reply to your bullshit but as I said get over yourself and life will be easy'er for you.

    Cool it, please

    It would be easier if people weren't trying to drag me into topics I had no intention of discussing.

    Just accept your misunderstanding and move on.

    I think you're all overreacting here. It could just be a reward from the Battle.net app beta. It could be something purchased in game, for gold, VP, or JP.

    No one knows yet.

    This post is entirely too logical and calm.

    While all the in-game currencies are all valid possibilities... it's listed as "5.4 - In Game Store". It probably wouldn't be labeled that if it were a reward for the app beta.

    It's possible there will be a store. But we don't know what currencies are going to be used for it, and the people running full speed down the slope, claiming "heroic gear is next" are what I'm aiming at.

    Well this proves how successful is this game.

    Other games make money selling the game
    Other games make money charging a sub
    Other games make money charging for services like server transfers
    Other games make money selling esthetic items.


    WoW:
    charges for the game
    AND charges a sub
    AND charges for services like server transfers
    AND sells esthetic items (mounts and pets)
    AND sells gold (guardian cub pet)
    AND (probably) now will also have an itemshop

    Then why post in the thread if you had no intention of talking about it. If all you wanted to do was state your opinion and leave then that is what you should have done.

    That's the fun part of discussions, you discuss possibilities, saying "No one knows" is not constructive. This thread is discussing the possibility of it being Cash bought. Though, you just continue to insult people's intelligence and continue to try to be the smartest person in the room. Or leave the thread if you don't want to discuss it.. because yes, it could be any of those things.

    We don't even know what's that for sure, and you already made that a PROOF?
    You might have been raised in a fair family, right? With lots of "justice" done, just like the Griffins from Family Guy....

    My very first response to you was to point out I was specifically talking about selling gear.

    You said you weren't.

    End of discussion.

    You're the one who clearly needs to get over themselves.

    There is a difference between saying "hey it could be this or that, and we might be able to buy it with this or that" and "omg, the game is going F2P! Next step is heroic gear for cash! I won't stand for this!"

    Maybe blizzard is adding legacy rewards? Perhaps their promotional/event items will reward currency for an "in-game store" where you can purchase the reward you want? Maybe its for a new product promotion with Mt. Dew or some other brand? There are plenty of things that it could be if you approach it from a calm and rational matter.

    Blizzard often names items and things still in a design phase after their function, or leaves "design notes" that classify them. Perhaps in-game store is simply a design note and not related to how the item is earned or awarded?

    You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."

    It seems like a lot of steps, really. I don't see what the big deal is, leveling is a minimal commitment these days and for people with multiple 90s, I can totally see them shelling out real world or in game currency to speed up that process.

    Kinda funny to see all these moderators in here white knighting for blizzard. I guess you all don't wanna bite the hand that feeds ya.
