Specifically, will they be swarmed by gold farming bots and chat spam?
Gold was difficult to come by in WOW's early days and it practically spawned the "Chinese" gold farming industry turning it into a monolith.
Few may recall how prolific it was but I'll confess, I spent a significant amount of cash on a couple of horses for my son and I back on our first characters.
I wasn't alone, I knew numerous working adults who did likewise, for either themselves or their children.
Now by the time the 2nd year rolled around Blizzard had made changes. Most gear was BOP with only some mid level BOE items, and earning gold seemed easier.
I rerolled on a new server and it was much easier to earn enough gold when I needed to, even when paying for raiding supplies and repairs.
Will Blizzard be offering their token system in Classic or could we see a return of gold farming bots across the land?
