- Expansion: WotLK Classic
This is definitely a bit divisive of a feature being added to the WotLK Classic servers. WoW Tokens are essentially a way to either convert in-game gold into subscription time, or real world money into in-game gold. This system has been present in retail WoW for quite awhile now, and is just now being introduced into WotLK Classic. Do note that this is only for WotLK Classic and “Classic Era”, the Classic Vanilla servers, are not currently going to be using the WoW Token system.
There is also two more major restrictions being placed on the WoW Tokens system as of right now. First, you cannot trade or transfer WoW Tokens between retail and classic. Second, you cannot use WoW Tokens gained from WotLK to add to your Battle.net Balance. For the second limitation that means you can only trade in any WoW Tokens you attain for gametime or gold. This could be a temporary limitation and might have to do with the imminent release of Diablo 4 in early June. Otherwise anyone with a stockpile of gold in WoTLK Classic could turn that into Battle.net Balance and buy the game outright.

Please keep in mind that WoW Tokens cannot be transferred between World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic* and World of Warcraft. Certain restrictions apply. Visit our Support article for more details.
