Thread: Quitting Wow and...

  1. #1

    Wink Quitting Wow and...

    Right so I've decided its time to try and quit the game. Sub is still till the end of the month. Only kinda feel bad for the guys as I'm the Healing officer of my guild & I do the raid strategies.

    What I have been wondering is if I should just let my acct lie inactive or sell it (In which case I think it would keep me from playing again longer )

    So for you guys that do know about these things, how much would an acct like this be worth and where do one go to get 'rid' of it?

    Main:
    Resto Druid (Troll)
    9/13 HC
    Blackwing's Bane title and various other titles and raid mounts from this and previous expansions
    Item level 370
    OS Gear, Kitty mostly Heroic raid gear, gemmed and enchant, thou I never play it. so I guess +- 365 ilevel

    Other toons:

    85 Priest, ilevel 358 gear (nelf)

    80 Mage (human)
    80 Paladin (human)
    77 Rogue (human)
    68 DK (orc)
    51 Hunter (nelf)
    50 Warrior (undead)
    44 Lock (noam)
    22 Shaman (goblin)

    Included with these toons are ALL BOA gear & the 80's being fully ICC geared.
    +- 30k gold spread over toons, all on the same server.

    Thx

    Account would be worth a decent sum, but all those alliance characters kinda bliksemed the price down to around the R50 mark. Delete the alliance characters and watch your price rise ! :-p
    Only thing to keep in mind is the next tier of raiding gear is coming, meaning all our precious heroic gear will be worth peanuts again.

    Would be painfull to sell your character and 3 months along the line you want to play again... Unless you wanna make a clean break, I reckon its best to just park your character and see after a few months if you totally conquered your addiction. Firelands may just reignite that spark.

    Instead of just selling, why not just take an extended break? A few months away from wow is always a good idea.
    On the other hand, if you want good cash for your toons, you have to sell them now, while the gear is still appropriate and good. In a few months time it will be worth a lot less.
    The account should be worth around R2k local but probably more internationally but sold at higher risk. Have a look on e-bay plenty of accounts of similar geared toons...

    Keep in mind if it's linked to your battle.net account, you're selling the whole thing, including Starcraft2 if you have that linked, and if you get Diablo3 you'll have to create a new BNEt account.

    p.s. Been clean and dry for a couple months. Quitting WoW was the best decision I've ever made.

    @ Elimentals, as far as I know the money is mostly for quality not quantity of toons. So having one main with heroic BIS gear and great achievements, mounts etc is what makes the big difference between the price according to sites I've found.

    Nice acct thou

    Trust me dont sell your account. Did that back when WoTLK hit. Leveled to 80 and sold my account. Now I wish every day I can have it back! I had lots of rare items om that account of that would be netherdrake done back then and a REAL war bear from ZA not the bull**** they have now.

    Only having had my 3-4months of no wow to having to start a new account all over again :/

    True, well 4 of my Horde toons have the ICC mounts(Drake) for hard mode achieves nevermind the 102 thats on my lock. Also all professions are on 525. I was in a very active Raid Guild on a US server. We did 3 separate raids a week, all of them was 2 days each. All my 80's killed the Lich king.

    As mentioned before, buyers are looking for well geared chars that they don't have to invest months of play time into. Most accounts with only level 85s on it is bought as a second account or to someone starting out new and don't want to do the leveling grind. But in 99% of the time the account is worth a lot less than what you would think it is. Elimentals, I would imagine you getting around R1000 for your account, but that would not be worth selling it for. Under the old character transfer to a new account system, you could have transfered each level 85 and get R1000 for each.

    Lotta people are burning out... Many guilds taking strain with raiders quitting.
    I have been raiding for many years, and for me, the only way to maintain a balance that wont result in burnout is to raid no more than 3 nights a week, with 2 of them being week nights and 1 night on a weekend like sunday.

    Most of the people burning out are people that committed to 4 / 5 nights raiding a week... it doesnt sound like much, but try and maintain to a raiding schedule like that, its hard, really really hard.

    I pretty much dont log in at all on nights I dont raid, unless I am really bored, and there is nothing else to watch on TV.

    "Casual" progression raiding is the sweet spot in this game. 3 nights MAX with solid progression... But in order to do this, those guilds tend to be very picky about who they take in.
