If I'm paying for two Wow accounts, one used by me and the other by my Wife - should I be creating one Battle.net account linked to both Wow accounts (to centralize my payment details), or two battle.net accounts?

@chris - you apparently missed the "...paying for two Wow accounts...."This is why I was reluctant to move to battle.net myself. We have 2 PAID accounts, 1 houshold - according to the walkthrough instructions on battle.net, I SHOULD merge them into a single battle.net account. According to the OP text from this article, I should do it as well - one login would be simpler, after all.But with the post that Chris noted, again it's not precisely the same situation of course, I'm not convinced that if I do this, we'll BOTH be able to login simultaneously to the two accounts without flucking things up.So I just created a dummy gmail account for the second login, and so each account is tied to an email, and again we have 2 (longer) logins for 2 separate accounts.A stupid pain in the butt change but it was obvious months ago that this is where it was going - from 'optional' to 'recommended' to 'mandatory'. Pretty standard procedure.

@styopaMy husband and I were told to make 2 accounts, even though we both use his paypal account information to pay for our subscriptions. It may make it easier to pay for both accounts by linking them together, but honestly you're paying through 2 accounts atm. Sometimes easier isn't better. I know that I'd rather have my own account than have it linked and if for some reason or another we would get divorced, I wouldn't want to have issues with my wow/battle.net account.

Same situation here. We created separate battle.net accounts, problem solved.Also you'll want 2 accounts so in case you do use a mobile authenticator then you can each have your own.

Perosnally I have two accounts (one for me, one for dual boxing/kid/wife) in which I placed under one single battle.net account, both can log in at the same time using the one log in. Works out very well.
