buying gold from blizzard is a big slap in the face really. all they need to do is just adjust your gold with a few clicks while the chinese farmers are probably up all night killing and looting over and over . in that case, you are spending money for the time it took them to farm them.

You don't think "gold farmers" actually just farm for gold to sell, do you? The unfortunate truth to the matter is that pretty much every piece of gold that gets sold was stolen from hacked accounts.It's basically a crime syndicate in the virtual world.(Forgive me if you were just making a joke.)

@(cutaia)That's only partially true. Gold farmers do, in fact, farm gold in a way.More specifically, they will farm herbs, ore, and skins and sell them on the Auction House. In fact, I've even seen gold farmers farming up Relics of Ulduar in Storm Peaks on a number of occasions, though I haven't checked since Sons of Hodir rep became incredibly easy to earn.There's no denying that they make gold from 'hacked' accounts, but that's not the whole picture.

Malkil is correct. They do a lot of their business in hacked accounts, but if you ever visit the Just My Two Copper forums, you'll see a lot of people discussing how a recent wave of goldfarmer bans caused supply of raw materials to drop and prices to raise.They do frequently use bots and hacks to accomplish their farming, like the one that allows them to hide under the terrain and mine without being seen or getting aggro.

Ya, after I had my account compromised, one of my characters was naked in Sholazar Basin with a couple stacks of Saronite Ore that I definitely hadn't farmed. When I logged in I was underneath the terrain and fell to my death. So they definitely do farm.
