    Well, most people know about this already but i figured i'd write a quick topic on it to help some people get some easy money if they want it.

    Lets get started.

    First, we need an MMO. Obvious choice is WoW (world of warcraft), but others like runescape etc. can work. Just over 8 million people play WoW thus more client base.

    You'll need the game. You should be able to find it with a 1 month subscription included.

    Make an account & think of a name etc. Don't worry about the name, it can be changed later. now we can oursource it.

    Looking at google, you can find hundreds of powerlevelling websites, some scams, some legit. Take sometime to look around, and you can find some legit services which will max your character for $120 (£60). It takes about 17-21 days depending on the company.

    Now, if you look on ebay, Wow level 70 accounts go for at least £170. Most go for near the £300 (~$450) mark. If you list them on specialist websites, you can get even more for them.

    So after the initial investment of the game (some of your friends will probably have it to lend you anyway), each account will cost you about £70-80 (cost of outsourcing & subscription), for sale of about £200 (easy sale), giving a profit of £120-ish.

    Now you can buy 2/3 accounts etc. etc.

    the WoW market probably has already been quite tapped due to its popularity, but you get the basic idea. Alot of companies will do other games too if you ask.

    But then again it might be cheaper to outsource the task fully to india/china if you already outsource over there.

    I'd say either wait for a new MMO and get making some money from that, or get on this.

    Another, easier method is just to sell power levelling services on ebay etc and just send orders through to a company. Sort of like drop shipping power-levelling. That way theres no investment apart from auction fees.

    Its also very easy to find buy forums which don't mind advertising etc. to promote it in.

    But yeah, hope this helps someone!

    Jamie.

    My friend does this, except he has 2 computers running bots.

    If you have a high level hunter & 2 computers, just get a bot for the hunter and have the low lvl follow it.. I guess selling honor points is profitable too.. (some pvp crap)

    I hate wow
