Blizzard Announces Warlords of Draenor

By Brandy,
Blizzard is set to unleash Warlords of Draenor, the fifth expansion of World of Warcraft, this November and even without knowing anything about its contents, the answer to this title's question is a resounding yes.

New Expansions Drum Up Demand
Time and time again, with virtually no fail, all the expansions of World of Warcraft? or any MMORPG for that matter outside of those that are on their death knell ? have led to a surge in subscribers and related WoW Gold sales.
What is it with new expansions that they correlate to profit spree for virtual currency sellers? Expansions introduce new content that can excite old players to return to the game, and lure in fresh gamer blood that have so far ignored the title.

Level 90 Character Boost
But there is a chance that Warlords of Draenor might not trigger as big a payday for virtual currency shops as previous World of Warcraft expansions for one huge reason: Level 90 Character Boosts.

Will Warlords of Draenor Reinvigorate WoW Gold Sales?
All pre-purchase orders of Warlords of Draenor come with a level 90 character boost, which shrinks the demand for World of Warcraft Gold among fast levelers. It's no secret that a big slice of the virtual currency market is driven by players who hate to grind, and want to purchase gear and other conveniences to quickly prepare for the endgame where all the action is happening. Granted, only one character can be boosted to level 90 so alt addicts should still require the services of WoW Gold suppliers.

There's also the fact that the new level cap is 100. This means even with the level 90 boost, players will still need to work their way up 10 full levels. Depending on the availability of gear buyable with WoW Gold, sellers can still market their wares to those who would want to hit level 100 at the fastest, most convenient way possible.

If there is anything WoW Gold sellers should be excited about, it's the new feature called Garrisons which allows Azerothian heroes to build a base and army on Draenor. This task will require finding blueprints and materials, and if some of these can be acquired through WoW Gold via the marketplace, then expect currency sales to skyrocket.
