Mar 26th 2008 2:47PM In fact, when you think about it Blizzard will NEVER do anything too extreme (besides complaining) to combat Gold Farming. The reason for this is all those Chinese Accounts. That is a fairly significant amount of money for a relatively inexpensive solution. I'm sure they just have a few extra Customer Server personnel to handle it. With the amount of money Chinese workers make I'm sure there are thousands of WoW Accounts in existence SPECIFICALLY for farming gold.
In a sense, Blizzard, while they may hate the idea of it, will NEVER full resolve the issue. They could just ban all IP's coming from China as WoW is technically not even in Asia. Easy solution.
