So what you're saying is ... now's a good time to sell game tokens for gold?

Hard to say for now the price seems to have plateaued but could go higher depending on if more information about the tokens is release. I do not see it going down much Order halls are starting to generate a good amount of gold for me so I do not seem the gold supply drying up much.

I would say if you want gold now you are getting a nice amount for your cash.

There's been a wee bit of a run-up in the North American wow token price since the last time this thread was active, peaking at 200K in early November and hovering around 190K for most of the fall.  But the price has started to decline a bit in the past couple of weeks, now oscillating around 165-170K.

As I recall, prices were at ~40K gold just two years ago.  The currency squish is not going to be pretty!

Currency squish? I knew there was a stat squish coming in BfA, but is something happening to prices?

People have been talking about it for year but I do not think Blizzard has every said anything about it.

Agreed (with the second part; this is the first I've heard of the idea myself).  If Blizzard wants to keep gold amounts memorable, they could introduce a higher-level currency like "platinum", but reducing people's gold quantity seems like it would just irritate people.

Frist I had heard of it too, the "people talking" of it was only some posts a google search of "Currency squish" unearthed.

Sorry, didn't mean to start wild rumors.  At a 400% inflation rate, token prices will eventually be large enough that they stop making sense to the casual player.  Introducing platinum and removing copper seems more likely; Marco is right.
