    Hi,

    The title says it all. Have any of you ever golf farmed in virtual games? If yes, which games? I can only think of World of Warcraft, the Diablo series, and Runescape.

    I tried playing a game few weeks ago. I could not remember the name because the game is not worth remembering I guess I am looking for something more interactive and cool. I did manage to earn gold if I got your question right. There were cold coins that you can exchange for some bitcoins.

    I think Warcraft would be the most profitable game now in terms of farming gold. Diable III has banned trading and there is now no real money auction house so it seems there are no more future for gold farmers there. Used to farm gold in the older mmorpgs. LIke ragnarok and such.

    I once sold a WoW account (oooh, slapped wrists for me). Since it was full of top-level toons, though their gear wasn't anything special, I got $120 for it, I think.

    Gold farming really isn't profitable unless you use bots (which are against TOS, of course). It simply takes too long when people expect to get a million gold for $10 or something. Equipment farming is much more worthwhile, building accounts with top-end gear to sell or collecting the trading cards, rare pets and stuff.

    I think those money or earnings you can get from those games are only flavors to spice up the game and not really for earnings like what we see in earning sites. From what I know, those games give you pocket change for hours and hours of playing and cannot be considered real earnings. But in fairness to the developers of those games, they surely know how to motivate players.

    I came in this thread to say that poker is the only way to legitimately earn money through online computer games, but I guess I have been wronged. Is the payout worth the time invested in playing the game? Can you earn an adequate sum of money this way?

    I feel like losing something that is worth more that anything else I could get from games; my time.

    Playing games can be enjoyable really, but when you are after the gold, gaming turns stressful, and may result in wasting your time if you do not make any money out of it.

    On the other hand, and when it comes to poker and other casino games,. the risk of picking a gambling addiction is high, while the opportunity to make loads of money is close to null. The house never loses and when it does, is just a small amount of money that contributes to get you hooked up with the hope to hit million dollars with no effort.

    Farming gold in these online games may not be worth our time (it certainly isn't worth mine) but some people enjoy playing these games. The question we should be asking ourselves is how to learn how to farm/mine the gold from an experienced gamer and turn that into a WoW etc eBook guide and sell it. That is the business. That is how to add value to the gamers who are playing online and want to know this information, and you can make some money at the same time. That is how Peng Joon got started (selling a $7 WoW eBook) and it lead to a six figure business.

    I have actually heard that this isn't a good way to make money online. I mean I'm sure that it works for some people, and good for them. I was reading an article online the other day about the worst ways to make money online, this was one of them. I mean I"m sure that they use want to take your money on these sites. I know that it seems like you're making a lot, but you really aren't. They are getting more money off you and basically giving you very little back. This happens with a lot of sites, you just have to be careful.

    I think you guys are a bit behind the times. People can legally "buy" gold via Blizzard now, and not risk a ban or getting hacked. Also, the gold farmers that do still sell gold, will run circles around you and then undercut your prices. It's not a good money maker these days (especially since you need to buy the game plus pay a monthly sub) and it was never allowed in the first place.

    Gold is so easy to make in World of Warcraft right now that a WoW gold making guide probably wouldn't be a lucrative prospect any more either. Back in the day, when it was much harder, people cleaned up. Now? Not so much. Also keep in mind that there are many free guides and there is free info on many fan sites to compete with as well.
