It most certainly is a major part of WoW. Questing and leveling is how you see the STORY. WoW is an MMORPG. That's stands for Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. The key to that is Role Playing. The story is what sets its a part from just being Call of Duty with fantasy stuff. Most people in WoW do not play for just the end game.
YES PLEASE. I already send Blizzard twice the normal sub fee every month since theyre my best friend and I love to see them happy
I'm fine with it. As long as it doesn't go full pay2win, I don't mind at all. Your prices are a bit off though. 100 dollars is way too much for a character. I don't think new characters should cost more than a full expansion should. I think an instant level 100 should be like 20 bucks.
Superficial vanity items only. Mounts, pets, transmog, etc...
Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.
I honestly can't understand anyone that supports the shop, like ''oh yeah I could have gotten that item from my 15$ monthly fee since they are using my money to produce said items but instead I'll just pay an extra 15$ to get it with no effort what so ever, it's not like I'm paying monthly to actually play the g...oh wait'' and OP you are quite the hipocrit, in another thread you are accusing someone of wanting everything (leveling specially) to be easy because he doesn't like the no fly till 6.1 change, and yet you want it to be even easier by buying max level characters?
This would make the game pay to win. I honestly for one have the type of money where if there was a shop like this I could benefit and would buy every single thing in it like i have already did with the blizzard store and keep on doing. From a semi rich persons view I would love this but from a gamers point of view I wouldn't like this. It wouldn't be fair to those people in the world who can't afford to blow hundreds of dollars on a game.
No, but I won't be losing any sleep if they add one.

Jaylock ive never said this, but that would singlehandedly kill WoW as we know it.
Even in a F2P game thats rediculous. The fact Blizzard are even considering a cash shop in game for a SUB based game, is a complete disservice to their playerbase.
I feel this poster always just creates threads to stir up drama. It's nauseating.
OP, are you capable of making a thread that isn't highly controversial or is it impossible for you?
Please please please someone come up with an actual good argument as to why a cash shop is not good for a sub based game when the item and things are only *GASP* optional value added items that you can choose to, or choose not to pay for!

A cash shop is a terrible idea at least from the customers stand point I don't believe a game company should profit from there problems...
Realms should have been merged earlier the solution shouldn't have been to make 25$
Leveling should either be made better so its not a mindless grind or removed they should not profit from having a terrible leveling experience
The garrision idea is literally at the point of pay to cheat.
Vanity.. stuff well I have mixed feeling about it on one had my subscription already payed for the items so I expect them to drop in game.
Maybe I am of a old dying breed of gamers but I expect a company to want to fix there problems with there product to make consumers happy not profit off of there expense. Why is it now a days we don't expect developers to make things better unless we pay extra?
To be honest it doesn't even make sense from blizzards view with leveling issue they lose a huge amount of players in the grind and while I appreciate the free 90 it begs the question of why we can't just start all our new characters there?
