Holiday MMO Shopping Guide

Last night I got a visit from the Ghost of Christmas “Presents” and today I’m here to share gift ideas with you!

(Please note that these items require real money; in-game items that can be bought with WoW gold, GW2 gold, etc will be covered in a later post.)

WoW Sale

First up, there’s a whole bunch of stocking stuffers at the Blizzard Store! Get friends, Romans, countrymen started on WoW with the following goodies:

Battle Chest—$5


Mists of Pandaria—$30

Assorted pets—$5 each

With prices like these, it’s a good time to round out your pet collection as well! These pets are all available for $5: Lil’ K.T., Pandaren Monk, Lil’ XT, Lil’ Ragnaros, Moonkin Hatchling, Cenarion Hatchling, Guardian Cub, Soul of the Aspects.

Although it’s not on sale, the Cinder Kitten pet also makes a good gift and the proceeds go to charity.

The sale ends 11:59 p.m. PST, January 1st, 2013.

TSW Sale

Amazon has marked down prices for The Secret World. The PC version is now selling for $19.99. That’s $30 off the regular price of $49.99! Yes, I know I sound like a late-night infomercial, but trust me, this is a good deal.

You may have heard that TSW has recently gone buy-to-play, and with subscriptions no longer a barrier, many people are looking to try the game. If you have a friend who loves spooky, smart games, he’ll surely appreciate receiving a copy of TSW.

GW2 Sale

The Digital Deluxe Edition of Guild Wars 2 is currently on sale with an additional $15 off! Get loved ones to join you in Tyria and let them experience’s numero uno video game of 2012 and Metacritic’s top-rated RPG of 2012!


Another good deal on Amazon is the PC download version of TERA, currently on sale for $4.99. Right on time too, for you to take part in TERA’s cool holiday event, Santa’s Slay (get it?). The event will have you hunting for Fat Santas and Tiny Santas!
