I half caught a comment on guild chat as i logged out the other night that i want to ask.

In China can you buy like WoW scratch cards that can win you in game items etc?

Probably, because only caught half the conversation, i got this wrong but thought i would just check.

No, he's referring to the cards that actually get you an item. The ones where you enter a code,etc... and get a limited edition mount/pet. Basically, the TCG Loot Cards. I think it is possible in China since Malice has been using them as prizes for guild event winners.

there are card shops all over. if in Guangzhou i know exactly where to go,, but if in another city you will have to ask around for a game card shop.

WARNING: packs of cards are random and the you may or may not get a scratch loot car, which may or may not be permanent.

buying singles is the sure way to get the card you want (do research before you just go by the pic) but mount cards often cost hundreds if not a thousand rmb.

as Mals husband... i know exactly how much you need to spend...

erm, i'm not really sure how it works to be honest. is it like the footy cards you used to get. you buy a pack and see what you get?

or you choose what you want?

u buy a 'booster' or package with some cards, i dont know the exact number. They are all random, and most of them won't give u anything in-game, they are just to play the actual WoW Cards game. The 'drop' chances of those cards, such as the spectral tiger are very rare, thus the high prices. At the US servers, this tiger can sell for up to 500 dolars.

if you get a loot card, like the http://www.wowhead.com/item=49286#comments

you go to a redeeming website and enter the code,,, they will give you another code you take to a specific NPC in game and redeem it.

for China you must buy the chinese version,, english versions only work on english servers... i have this english scratch card... pisses me off.

i dont know if the chinese name is the same as for the online game,
sounds like : Mo show

but the link is to verified card shops in china that carry them. Bring a wow time card and just ask for playing cards. usually they are displayed quite prominently along side the english versions.

WARNING: You have to buy the CHINESE booster packs to put them on ur account. The US ones only work in the US. The celestial tiger mount is around 5000rmb for one card. The pet version is around 2000rmb. Mounts vary from 200rmb (consumable) to 5000 (permanent)

Most decent card shop will have a binder of them, thats how they make alot of their profit.

Also, I have MANY set aside for guild event prizes.

I assumed, maybe incorrectly, that you bought a pack and didnt know what was in it. is this not correct?

From your comments it sounds like you buy specific cards for specific items at a price.

How much does a booster pack usually cost?

Booster packs there is no guarantee of getting a scratch card (its very random. Bought three packs on day: go three scratch cards, granted they were cheaper ones. Then went without for a month of buying). Chances are you just get the playing cards.

Pack run around 20-25ish per pack.

I don't bother buying pack for the chance at scratch cards anymore. Since I buy them for guild prizes, I just buy them single from the store.
