Age of Wulin MMORPG in-game item sells for $16,000 at auction

Free-to-play and some pay-to-play MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft usually come with a game store from which players can purchase “perks”. These include items such as in-game mounts, pets, weapons, skill slots, etc. The prices may range from anywhere but they’re usually in the “reasonable” range although upcoming MMO, Age of Wulin, may have just taken the cake.

The game’s activation code beta launch was recently launched in China on the 25th of December, and to celebrate the launch of the game, Snail Games decided to hold an auction to sell off unattributed virtual items. Among the items sold was a sheath of Hook of Departure (10 only) at $1,600, a Lordly Spear Sheath (5 only) for $2,500 and lastly, a one of a kind item, the Dragon Slaying Sabre scabbard that was allegedly sold for a whopping 100,000 Yuan (~$16,000)!
