The picture it says it all... If there was any doubt in the popularity of the new items, this is all you need. For virtual items to be going so fast and furious is unheard of. But here we have it. The most that WoW.com has seen is the number reach around 70,000
. It could be more or less when you get in-line to buy one.
Edit at 4:45 p.m. EDT:
It's now above 80,000, which is nearly
10 times OVER 9000.
Edit at 7:30 p.m. EDT:
The queue is now above 140,000.
