I admit it: I've spent real money to buy in-game mounts and pets. After all, who could resist the adorableness of Lil' Ragnaros
or the Cinder Kitten
? Sure, it can be silly to spend real dollars on items that are purely virtual in nature, but with as much time as we all spend in World of Warcraft
, why not? The new cosmetic helms
in the Blizzard store -- more expensive than pets, less expensive than mounts -- have recently brought the question of buying cosmetic items into conversation once more.
So do you or have you bought in-game items in the past? And are you planning on picking up a shiny new helm? Let us know!
