WoW US Gold
World of Warcraft gold
price during December 2015 was totally different from other games in the roster for two reasons. First, it fluctuated widely. Its gold price never stayed the same even for a single day. The average fluctuation rate was about 5% daily. Second, it had the highest price on the first week while the lowest was on the last week. Since the World of Warcraft is still among the most popular MMORPGs in the world, it's possible that this fluctuation was from promotional campaigns from each shop that tried to drive sales as much as possible during this shopping month. It is believed that WoW Gold price in January should be quite similar to December, but far more stable. The cheapest was on December 30, 2015 which is 50,000 gold for $21.95 and the most expensive was on December 07, 2015 for $24.95. The discrepancy rate was 13.67%.
