Based on rates that I see in trade chat, it would take around 4-5k gold (let's just say 5k). If you have a max level character in wow as a farming character, you can pretty safely accumulate that amount in materials over a few hours of farming.Eve is just a crazy game with how like everything is pvp. The one thing I wonder about "thefts" so to speak is what is the motivation, and are these people turning ISK into real life money. Because you'd have to realize that if you stole 10s of billions or even 100s of billions of in-game credit, you can be pretty sure that no one in the game is ever going to trust you (and probably won't even want to play with you anymore). So I have to wonder if those things are like a grand farewell, where they have a buyer for the ISK, steal it as mentioned in the article, and then turn it into real life money. The guy that nabbed 850billion ISK, the article stated that that would be worth a cool $45,000 in real world dollars.That's not a huge number in this day of inflation, but it's still a nice chunk of change. I could see how someone would be tempted to do that.
