Hey Everybody,

Long time wow player here looking to pick up the game again here in China,
I'm just wondering how am I to get hold of a Chinese ID card ?
How do I find an account on sale on Taobao like some of you mentioned here and how much should they cost ?
How do I make sure I won't get scammed if I were to buy it on Taobao ?
Is anyone looking to sell his/her account to me? I'd much prefer to buy it from someone within the community...

Thanks in advance,
I Hope I'm not breaking any of the forum rules(not from what I read).

Welcome, I hope that you're able to arrange everything soon.

Easiest way is simply to ask your friend/significant other/ayi if you can use theirs. As online gaming does not really lose you social points in China and is almost respectable, its not that difficult to ask around. Make sure you keep a scan of the ID in case you need to change anything later on.

You can search for 魔兽世界帐号 on Taobao to find options. Cost is determined by the account's characters, achievements, mounts, pets, etc. If you're going to start a new character, then a cheaper one should be fine.

You can't really guarantee that you won't get scammed, but like every online transaction, generally buying from someone with a good rating and many previous sales is fine. Make sure they give you a scan of the ID card and the email account and you should be fine.

Hope it all works out and we can see you in game soon.

What blackhorn said and don't get the ID card from a girl you picked up at club/bar and will be dumped by you sooner or later. I know some people who got screwed because the owner at the ID card pissed off at them and block the account lol.

Hey guys
Thanks for all the help, I'm thinking that if I'll start playing again I will buy an account with a few 90s
on it since I don't have that much time on my hands and after leveling so many times, I can't be annoyed to do it all over again, I just wanna enjoy the PVP side of the game as I used to,
So I have a few more questions,
Is it easy to transfer my characters to a different server? If i find an account I'd like to buy.
To what server should I transfer in order to find the biggest foreigner community and is it Alliance or Horde?
Could you be a bit more specific on the price ranges accounts should be around, I see many duplicates on Taobao, and my chinese + buying on Taobao skills aren't that good.
And please If you know someone wanting to sell their account please let me know, I'd much rather buy from someone within the community.
Again guys thanks in advance for all the help !!!

I don't think there is a guide on price ranges except what you see on Taobao. It's totally dependent on what the character has. After a quick look on Taobao, prices ranged from about 100-20,000 for lvl 90 characters. Obviously, if there is more than one, it will be pricier.

Anyway, the most popular foreign guild is currently The Crazy Waiguorens on Alterac Mountains (Horde). The link to the characters being sold for that server is right here.

I don't know what they all include, but there is a range of pricing, so you'll just have to investigate more.

Hey guys

Again thanks for all the help you have provided.
I was PMed by spooky about his accounts, but I can't seem to be able to reply to him in a private message, It says "You haven't reached the post limit for sending private messages." I've looked in the FAQ page for more information but couldn't find any.
Any idea how I might be able to PM him back ?

I think you'll just have to wait until he sends you another message with his contact details. Hopefully he'll read your message soon.
