How To KILL GOLD SELLERS!!

Discuss anything relating to World of Warcraft

Postby Hercanic » Wed Jun 18, 2008 6:02 pm

At first, I never cared either way about gold sellers. Someone still had to go to the effort of earning it. However, when I started to get constantly spammed with gold advertisements in whispers, mail, and macroed shouts, I grew to loathe the practice. I absolutely abhor aggressive advertising that forces itself on people. On principle alone I refuse to buy any product or service that uses such tactics. Telemarketers that disturb my peace, door-to-door flyers that litter my lawn, ads that engorge my mailbox, I hate all of it because it forces me to go out of my way, wastes my time, and is just plain annoying as all hell.

Gold whispers are annoying. Mail spam wastes my time to get to a mailbox. And macroed shouts clear off any conversations I might have been trying to have.

Gold spammers are one of the reasons why I eventually gave up retail WoW. I made sure the crying peon knew it, too. =oP

Heh, to think that there once was a time (at least on my server) where there were no gold farmers or gold sellers...

Alas, that came to an end, now over half of the level 1's is a gold seller and roughly one third of the level 70's is a gold farmer. :(

I've been using the SpamMeNot addon.

Not as fun as using 'sploits to kill the buggers, but it works. I hit the auto-report button, and the spammer disappears five minutes later.

Found something that might work ...

During a WSG fight last night, I watched a friendly squishie put a bunch of totems around our flag, and then do some kind of feign death thing in the flag nook. For shits and grins, I selected him, walked up to him, and applied the Goblin Jumper Cables ... the older ones, with the 70% failure rate.

He stood up, did the Dance Electric, and died, leaving a skeleton behind. He was not very happy about it.


I wonder if this was a feign-death or battlefield only thing, or if this might work on blue-text gold spammers?

Tested it, and doesn't work on normal "friendlies".

Too bad ... would have been nothing short of awesome if it had.

i decline all group invites regardless of who it is unless i get a pst from them ahead of time, unless it is my mage friend then i accept ^^. but to get rid of gold sellers is to summon doomguards near the person.

I have my own ways of getting rid of gold sellers.

I basically ignore all the ones that advertise, and if a level 1 whispers me I always answer with "Ni hao! You buy gold yes? Only 50 dollar each 1 gold! You buy gold, I feed family for 3 months! go to www.buyinggoldisfornoobs.com!

The discombobulator didn't work either.

I'll keep trying ...
