WoW: Battle for Azeroth (now rockin' 8.3)

So unfortunately it will not let me turn it in, I need to know either the name of the card, or at least the expansion it was from (I could work backwards from there).

Nevermind, sorry, found a way to redeem it.

Alas it seems we will never know, after struggling with the authentication codes for a moment or two, and trying to find the right place to input the code on the website, after getting everything else right it seems the code is no longer valid. I triple checked after it said "code is no longer valid" to make sure I copied it right, and it was. Apparently those cards did have an expiration date as to how long they were valid for. Who knew.

Dammit, sorry. Yeah, the card is OLD but it's a real shame they aren't still valid. Screw you, Blizzard! Lol

It might be worth contacting Blizzard about it. If there is no visible expiration date, I don't think it costs them much to make a happy customer. It should be an easy win or a simple "no I'm sorry, that card is expired."

Well for the code input section, it has like a 20 character limit on the account code redeemer thing, whereas this code is around 25-30, so it's been long enough that the form of the code itself has changed, as far as I can tell. I've given up on it and after a few failed attempts, I don't want to risk getting banned, so if someone else wants to try go right ahead, I'm just giving up on it.

I'll talk to Blizzard. Might as well see what's up. There's nothing on the code about an expiration, but the card is from 2008.

And when I put the code from the card in it did spit out another code to give to the in-game vendor. *shrug* Maybe I i out the wrong thing and it's a bunk code.

Or maybe it’s locked to your account?

It might be if you had input the code from the card on the redemption page before giving out the the code you gave me to use in game, it was associated with your account it had to be used by you.

I wasn't logged into anything when I went to the redemption page, so I don't think that's it.

Hmm ok. I don’t know then. I just had a few failures when I tried to redeem it, and I’m worried about getting a temporary ban so I’m just gonna leave it as is.

Got my 300 mounts achievement!

Congrats!

very nice!!

Now up to 3.4M+ gold on my Ally Blackhand group o' toons.

I figure if I murder every leather-giving animal on both BfA continents 20 times over and convert said leather into vendor trash, I might make the magic 5M and buy the long boi before SL comes out.

Anyone have any decent gold-making ideas that aren't (a) raids (which are my go-to just for variety's sake) or all over YouTube? Nothing mind-numbing. I might just finally bear down and devote myself to the Insane title instead.

Damn, Enix, that is impressive. I have like 850k and feel rich.

You guys are better people than I saving up that much. I had a friend that just bought the 5M gold mount and I just don't understand. A WoW token currently costs 120k gold (roughly).

So, 41 tokens used for monthly subs @ $15 each = $615

It's basically a $600 mount. Don't get me wrong, it's cool and all, but I'm too cheap for that. I'd be using the gold to play for free.

I really like this streamer. Unfortunately her tactics appear to be all raids. Man though, at 8 hours a day, you are looking at over 10 weeks to earn 5 million gold.

Thanks. But I'm cheap AF (it's killing me that my new DH is unguilded and I have to cover my own repair costs) and play constantly but at a very high social-casual level. Still gotta get my raid participation achieves before SL drops!

@ FangBB: Thanks for the video. I've seen some other folks suggest that the Draenor raids and 5s are where the gold is, so I guess I need to check them out.

I can't see myself running back-to-back N-H-M of anything, tho. I'm the guy who gave up on Invincible and Mimiron's Head after 3-4 runs. Yes, I grind out the same WQs over and over but get bored by instances that I have to repeat. Weird, I know.

The best gold making rate on that video was around 10k/hour. You can buy a WOW token for $15, which sells for 120-150k. So taking an extra minimum wage job and spending your pay on tokens will get you at least 10 times as much gold per hour as you could make by spending the same amount of time grinding away in the game.

Kraken Latte did and actual guide on earning 5 million gold:

Came back to the game after a reasonable absence. Loving the game but MAN O MAN Nazjatar can suck it. I am on BFA Flying Pt 2 but probably will never get it because of that zone. Mechagon is so much better.

BFA pathfinding was pretty reasonable IMO - I've gone back and done Legion pathfinding easily too. Draenor, otoh, can eat a dick.

Nazj on the ground was brutal. I managed to aggro most everything I rode past. Worse, half the mobs are no-joke elites.

Take a demon hunter. Gliding makes ground travel so much easier. Nazjatar has a lot of blind death drops that are painful without gliding.

Hunter + Disengage has saved me from dying a time or two

I did it on my mage, with slow fall + invisibility, and teleporting as the factors that made things easier
