Farmers are the most important people in the world. Doctors, lawyers, scientists, programmers, philosophers, priests, engineers, politicians or teachers are positions that are only possible because of farmers. Farmers are the ones who grow our food and allow us to live a modern and meaningful life.
Farmers and the innovators of that field allowed us to live in a world where only 1% of our society is dedicated to providing us food. Because of farmers were able to have a society where so many people can devote their entire lives to the betterment of our species through music, art, literature, law, philosophy and religion.
Farmers are seen as yokels or uneducated or dumb but ponder this. If every doctor in the world died tomorrow the lifespan of the species would likely decline, people would die from cuts and broken bones but we as a species would likely continue and there likely wouldn’t be that much of a drop in population, after all many people don’t require doctors regularly. If every philosopher and artist died tomorrow we’d have a less forward thinking and beautiful society but we’d probably remain the same. But if every farmer died, 97% of our species would be dead in a month.
He got the money for nothing, and the chicks for free.
People often joke about how gold farmers are from third world country and WoW gold is worth more than their country's currency. People see gold farmers as someone who live in a dungeon and farm 247. With classic WoW entering the end era, this is no longer the case.
In recent weeks, due to Naxx progression, the price of consumables increase drastically, which lead to the increase in gold price. But with declining in player count, mara/zg runs are no longer profitable. Therefore, gold farmer guild has been formed and started to run GDKP. A Naxx GDKP run can often have a split between 3k to 5k. The gold farmers often collect their amount and resell it to gold buyers.
They even allow you to buy the gold on the go. Can't outbid an item? Just buy gold! You don't even need to worry about illegal transactions since your character never participate in any gold exchange. You pay them through Venmo/Paypal, and they add your payment in gold into the gold pot from their guild bank. You can even get membership by banking your gold with them, so you get discount when buying gold.
Due to high pay out to cover consumables, many players have decided to participate in gold farmer hosted GDKP. And congratulations, you are now working for the gold farmers! The gold farmers are paying gold for your labor so they can make more cash. And don't worry! This will only get worse as we enter TBC if Blizzard does not action on any gold buyers.
