I'm glad you guys posted this. I was about to use my Best Buy Certificates to get some Battle.net cash cards and turn that into some gold. I was kinda hoping it would go over 30k based on demand and lack of supply. Looks like people shared my idea and kept the supply a bit in line with the demand, if not moreso.
The way I see the token item it really has nothing to do with how much gold a person will pay for a month of game time, the real driver is how much gold do most people see the $20.00 being worth since they won't buy tokens to display if they aren't getting a sufficient return for their money. After all once that price drops too much they won't bother buying gold with real money.
Any chance we can get an app for android or iphone for the daily Info box? Would be fantastic!
Much as I always did terribly in the stock market picking game at school, my forecast for this market was abysmal (pretty much the opposite of what has happened so far).By the way, there is a Blue Tweet to the right that says "We've significantly raised the purchase limit on Auction House WoW Tokens within a 30-day period. Shop sales remain at 10 per 30-days." So, what is the limit on how many tokens we can purchase from the AH in a 30-day period?
I still think it'll go way up in the long run, because at 30k, let alone sub-30k, no one who knows how to do garrison missions will ever have to pay for a WoW subscription again, but . . . I've been wrong so far, so I could be wrong again. Take-home point: I shouldn't play the stock market! ;)Edit: unless there are a lot of people out there like me who got a year's subscription when WoD came out . . . maybe things will start changing one year after launch?

Leaving aside the token market, how is the REST of the auction house doing?I've been funneling all my spare gold to my wife (with six level 100 characters running high-level follower missions, I make around $5k per day) so she can buy battle pets. Are prices going up (with all the new gold in circulation)? Or are people responding to the influx of gold by getting more pets to sell?
Thanks for adding the WoW Token price to the front page.Saves me from having to log in and go to a AH to check the price. Looking forward to the realm being added to this.
Awesome. No more need to check the AH or other sites ;P
Remember there is a delay between a token being posted, and a token being purchased, and sellers are guaranteed the price that is available when they list their token, no matter what it actually sells for.What this means is once the gold price dipped below what people were willing to accept for their token, they stopped listing. This made the demand increase relative to the supply, which is why the price has climbed a bit. This fluctuation process will continue around what the average person views as an acceptable gold value for their $20. I expect it to be ~26,000g +- 1000, from the way things have gone.
I've been trying to purchase one for the last day, when they were around 21-22k, but they sell out instantly and I keep getting the mail error and refund. Now they're up around 26k and I'm a lot less interested -.-
Yeah I expected a lot higher price, I'd never pay 13 euros to get lousy 20k or even 30k.
