I've been playing World of Warcraft for close to a year now off and on. I've heard of people selling and purchasing items, gold and even characters for real money. Personally, I think they are crazy. It's just a game. Some people must be pretty desperate to make themselves feel good. One guy even paid close to $10,000 for a character.
While I've curbed by World of Warcraft addiction, I'm worried that I'll soon start getting back into the game. Surprisingly it has little to do with the recent announcement of the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion. No, my friends and fellow guild members have been bugging me pretty heavily lately, so you may see me lurking about the Silvermoon server once again.
