Question WoW character $400!!?? wtf!

http://dallas.craigslist.org/tag/722550876.html

I really don't get this shit.

What's the big deal about WoW? Why would people pay all this $ for some bS characted.

Discuss.

I sold my geared out 60 Shaman on Illidan server for $450.00. When I finally come to my senses and realized I was wasting away playing that game.

I think they keep track by days until he losses his virginity.....the longer you play, the higher the level, the less chance you have of getting laid.

It's broken down into minutes, hours, days.

To get to lvl 70 it takes roughly 25 days. 600 hours...

Plus the time to get the gear on the character, i'd say another 15-20 days. 420 hours...

1020 hours

The new game out now is Age Of Conan, 3 guys at work play it all the time, WoW is old news now I guess.

<- never played any of those games, never will

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

Can't blame him if there is a market for it. Someone posted awhile back about a girl giving up sex for game money. I assume it was WOW. South Park did a pretty good skit on the whole WOW thing that was pretty funny.

werd, although I can halfway understand the text thing, because some carriers suck and fuck up texts. I've gotten some from my sister at 4 AM when she sent them around 8 PM.

LMAO $400 thats it?? WTF!! UAE people will pay 5k for a character from final fantasy 11. Friend of mine quit the game about a year ago and said he'd never sell his char. Someone found out, contacted him and offered him 8k. He sold it in a heart beat.

I guess you guys didn't see the thread about the WoW slut that fucked some guy to get some shit in the game. I think she posted an ad on craigslist.

I sold my FFXI account just recently for $1,700...

It's not near as much money compared to the time and monthly payments for the account.

But, $1,700 wasn't too bad. I was actually surprised someone paid that much for it.

I'm a happy camper!

Eh I got 70 in 10 days from level 1. Was about 16 real time days. I was bored off my ass and racing someone lol...

Sold that though.

The gear part is retarded, you never finish....ever. They continually release more shit so you waste your life away trying to get more.
Killed the game for me.

Paid bills, paid rent, paid off my old car. Mostly past bills and such...at that time I was with my now Ex wife and she bought a lot of clothes and jewelry and garbage....
If only I could rewind time.
