@Neirin - You said "Now, if you were the GM of a 300 person guild, had a gbank full of nothing but Primordial Saronite, and the hackers were aware of this, they might expend the extra effort to break into your account"No, they really won't "expend the extra effort" if said GM account has an authenticator. The security setup that the authenticator uses is the same setup that Governments, banks (both global and local), and corporations use to protect their systems.If a hacker were to find a way to bypass the security of the Blizzard authenticator, they would not waste their time to hack someone's account to get some items. They would instead take millions of dollars and live out the rest of their life in some tropical non-extradition country.Please do not spread more mis-information that it is possible to bypass an authenticator. While yes, technically it is, and technically I can balance an elephant on a spoon, the repercussions of someone hacking one would be much much larger than a WoW account.
