“Cash whales, I’m coming for you.”
“I thought it would be really funny to try and build a ‘whale’ character in the game using WoW Gold as the primary funding source,” Naecabon stated. “There’s a sense of hilarity to me in dunking on a cash whale as a ‘gold whale.'”
Naecabon’s “project” started as quickly as they found out Diablo Immortal would certainly be concerning computer, which indicated their WoW Token equilibrium might be made use of at the Immortal store. Fortunately, years ago they had actually acquired a lots of World of Warcraft loot codes at different BlizzCons for around $1,000 to 2,000 in complete, and also the cards had actually been accumulating dirt in the years because. Fortunately, while they held little real-world financial worth as a result of aggressive fraudsters, they had actually evidently escalated in in-game worth by approximately 800%.
With that in mind, Naecabon exchanged the codes in different digital industries – all lawful and also within WoW’s regards to solution, they include – for a statistics lots of in-game World of Warcraft gold, which was after that made use of to acquire World of Warcraft symbols, which were after that exchanged Diablo Immortal money and also invested in 2,165 Elder Rift runs. The outcome:
“As a Necro Whale I feel literally unstoppable at the moment. I have not fought another player 1 on 1 that has even come close to beating me in my current gear/loadout, and I flatten them in seconds, whale or not. I’m genuinely looking forward to my first encounter that puts me in check; I’m like that dude in 300 hunting for my glorious death.”
Neacabon states you can capture them “soaking on money banners like jtisallbusiness (opens in new tab) ( a self-declared $100K money whale that streams on Twitch) with terrifying effectiveness.”
“There’s no real point to this other than to get the laugh out of it. When you see me battling cash whales in Battlegrounds, know that I’m engaging them using World of Warcraft currency as my main funding source.”
Sadly, Neacabon favors to do their whale searching far from the limelight and also for that reason does not stream or perhaps host a YouTube network for their adventures. And since you recognize the name, you can maintain an additional careful eye out for “the gold whale.” Just take care not to swim as well near their wake.
