MMOKings - In depth
mmokings.com is a veteran RMT shop which sells virtual currency for more than a dozen AAA online games.
Notably, the website does not cater to small, free-to-play browser games. Instead it only provides in-game gold for the biggest online games and MMORPGs, namely: Aion, Defiance, Diablo 3, EVE Online, EverQuest I and II, Final Fantasy XI and XIV, Guild Wars 2, LOTRO, Neverwinter Online, Path of Exile, Rift, Runescape, Star Trek Online, SWTOR, TERA, The Secret World and World of Warcraft.
Based on this, it is easy to assume that they are targeting only the games with arguably the biggest gamer player bases. It also offers power leveling services for several of the games listed above as a complement to their virtual currency wares, but does NOT sell other items or services like CD keys or accounts.
MMO Kings gives gamers a very competitive price on its virtual currency, often within a dollar difference from the cheapest sellers listed on MMOBUX.com. Given its line-up of super popular mmorpgs, this feat is quite impressive and reveals a very strong supply network. Power leveling services are similarly affordable.
Discounts may also be offered by online help agents, so be sure to ask to lower the rates even more. These come in the form of Discount Codes which can be plugged into the order page to slash prices before checkout.
Overall, this seller keeps prices low enough to keep customers interested and decide on other factors such as ordering convenience and customer service.
Shopping and Payment.
The whole process from landing on the homepage to finalizing the order takes a couple or so minutes. There is a tiny bit more clicking involved because MMOKings does not offer a quick order shortcut on the homepage, but this is something that most customers should be able to handle.
Customers must create an account to transact and this is seamlessly included in the first order of new customers, so they can register and place a world of warcraft currency order
in one go.
You can only pay with PayPal or Credit Card. This is one of the biggest weaknesses of mmokings.com. Most other sellers these days offer a flexible selection of payment options so the super limited selection will be a big annoyance for some and may even prevent many others from finishing the transaction.
MMO Kings delivers the majority – or 3 out of 4 – of orders within one hour or less. This is from a sample of the 500 most recent customer orders. Nine out of 10 orders are sent within the day, with roughly 5% of orders taking 2 days or more to be delivered.
From a comparison of other top-tier sellers, you will find that MMOKings can deliver fast but there will be frustrating times when your order will take so long that you will seriously consider just cancelling and asking for a refund.
From our experience, a customer who experiences just one super long delivery will be tempted to look for another, more reliable seller. It would do well for MMO Kings to reduce the long end of their delivery range to complement their excellent 1 hour delivery success rate.
Also, choosing to pay with PayPal results in significantly shorter wait times than if you pay with Credit Card since the latter will require a lengthy verification process, especially for new customers ordering huge sums of currency from the get-go.
Customer service agents are refreshingly straightforward and on the ball. Do not be afraid to ask about how long a delivery will take and whether there is stock on your particular server – the agents will respond honestly. This should help make you more informed decisions.
The level of English is very polished, almost native speaker-level. Agents seem to be well-trained and experienced with dealing with customers. They are far from friendly though beyond the usual introductory hello, which can be a plus for those who want a more professional conversation but a minus for those who want to a warmer exchange.
