WoW Dragonflight Token Price: When is it most optimal to buy a Token?

With the upcoming rollout of the World of Warcraft expansion Dragonflight, many players are considering the option of purchasing a Token in exchange for gold or real money. But when is it most profitable? Quick look back at the history of the Token in recent months!

Introduced with the Mists of Pandaria expansion, the World of Warcraft Token is a legal and reliable way to obtain membership or gold for Blizzard's MMORPG in exchange for real money or gold. Its price is highly variable if bought in exchange for gold coins and depends on supply and demand. It is for this reason that we offer you a recent historical overview of the price of this one, so that you have an idea of the good period in which to buy one (or more), whether you are looking for the subscription at a lower price. cost or to simply generate as much gold as possible before Dragonflight.

  • Chart source:

How to get a Token in WoW, and why?

Worth €20.00, it allows players who can afford it to sell it to earn in-game gold easily, where those with a large amount of in-game gold can do so. buy from them in order to get subscription by spending only in-game money.

World of Warcraft

There are two ways to get a Token in World of Warcraft:

  1. Buying a Token from the Store: It will cost you €20.00 and you can sell it on the auction house for a variable amount of gold coins. Its price is as mentioned above fixed by the law of supply and demand at the time of deposit, you cannot impose the price at which you wish to sell it. On the other hand, you can choose when to sell it according to its value in gold at the moment T.
  2. Buy a Token at the auction house: You then buy the Token of a player who has opted for the first solution in order to obtain 30 days of subscription in exchange for your gold coins in game. The price you will spend fluctuates day by day according to the law of supply and demand, so don't rush!

    The gold value of the Token thus fluctuates according to supply and demand: the greater the number of players buying Tokens in exchange for gold, the higher its price. On the other hand, if many players buy Tokens with real money but few spend gold to buy them, then the lower the price its price in gold. This is the principle of inflation!

When to buy Dragonflight Dawn Token?

Let's get to the heart of the matter: when should you buy a Token? The answer is actually quite obvious with the way this little object works that we presented to you earlier, but again it varies depending on what you are looking for:

  • You are looking for "easy" gold: You will be looking to sell your Token when you are one of the few to have bought a Token in real money while many wish to buy it in exchange for gold coins to have the subscription . Releases of extensions or important updates in particular!
  • Looking for a low-cost subscription: You will be looking to buy your Token when many players buy real-money Tokens to generate gold, but few do so in exchange for gold for subscription. Generally, it's during the so-called "low" periods of the game, after three months of a patch, when players are a little bored in game and don't really want to play it anymore.

    But if this concept may seem quite simple, we must keep another element in mind and which is of paramount importance: WoW Classic! Because in fact, if Classic players can't buy Token directly from their game, they can still do it on Retail to get game time on Classic since the subscriptions of the two versions of Blizzard's MMO are linked by the same subscription. As a result, you not only need to keep an eye on content releases on Dragonflight, but also on Classic.

    Some examples :

    Shortly before the announcement of the Shadowlands rollout delay, on September 1, 2020, the Token was worth 173,880 gold. Not crazy. Only then, the prices quickly soared until reaching a value of 216,764 gold coins just one month later, before the postponement of the extension. After stabilizing throughout the Shadowlands PrePatch, with some obvious fluctuations, it was a cataclysm on November 23, 2020, the day the expansion was launched: from 199,044 gold we went to 210,965, before falling violently back to barely 6 days at the modest sum of 155,434. And that didn't change for a long time, very long months with a ridiculously low Token!

    Reason: Players were looking for a lower cost subscription when the expansion was released to pick up, before the tide shifted in favor of getting gold to fund their legendary items and raid components!

World of Warcraft

The Token has since seen a marked resurgence in value with the fall in prices on legendary items. And another example that exemplifies this trend of last-minute rushing is the Wrath of the Lich King Classic rollout. While the Token was worth around 310,000 PO the day before the PrePatch of the second extension of WoW Classic, suddenly the price soared to 371,052 PO in less than a day. Since then, there has been a relative stabilization of the price around 350,000 gold, thanks to the nascent extension on Classic but also Dragonflight which is gradually revealing itself on the horizon!

World of Warcraft

Finally, we also note that the arrival of the Dragonflight PrePatch tends to encourage players to buy Tokens for the subscription. Falling quite significantly over the past few days, the price is now (at the time of writing) 315,116 gold, a far cry from last month's 376,000!

World of Warcraft

If we assume that the highest price ever reached in Europe for the Token was 406,037 GP, and with the Phase 2 of the PrePatch looming for November 15, we can without a doubt estimate that its value could climb again in the next few days: many players will be looking to start or resume the game (and therefore buy a subscription) to try their hand at the Dracthyr Evocateur, and this new class could well be the source of one of the biggest booms of the Token since its creation in 2015.

We could also see a furious price hike on November 29 for the release of the expansion, then its first raid in mid-December, before falling violently when players seek to obtain "easy" gold to create new parts with professions, buy Linked when equipped items, etc...

World of Warcraft

Conversely, if you plan to buy the subscription at a lower price, we recommend that you either spend your gold now as long as the Token is relatively inexpensive, or wait a few days after the expansion is released. But one thing is certain: don't do it at the last moment; the day before the release of Dragonflight, to renew your subscription in exchange for OP. You would lose... And not just a little!

Two visions of the Token that it is important to take into consideration if you plan to invest in this virtual currency. Take the time to think about it before you rush!
