Originating from World of Warcraft. A Chinese gold
farmer power levels their character
to 60 (or highest level
depending if you read this after expansions). Then this character
runs instances or certain sections
of Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. They kill and gather anything to make a profit. Their
goal is to obtain a steady flow of cash; produce things to sell
at the Auction House like a farmer would a crop to market hence classifying them as farmers. A guild known as PK Wang was notorious for this; this could explain the Chinese
addition to the term "Chinese Gold
Farmer" since the word Wang has been used as a Chinese
name for fictional
characters such as "Wang Chung". Chinese gold
farmers also spend
deal of time
in Orgimmar or Stormwind City spamming their
yells: “WTS Magister's gloves, Devout Bracers, Flawless Arcanite Rifle, Arcanite Reaper and Heartseeker PST with offers!!"
whispers to farmer
: Hey man wanna go pvp?
yells: "Also Arcanite bars x40, Thorium bars x80, runecloth x40,mooncloth x10 and Glowing
whispers: hmmm... I could so sell weapons in there; I would make a killing off potions!
: Damn Chinese gold farmers...
