The WoW Token is an item that can be bought for real money from the Battle Net shop, and be sold inside the game's auction house, for in-game Gold.
1 WoW Token contains 1 month of Game Time, and is sold for 20$ / 20€ / 17£. Its Gold price fluctuates based on the game's economy.
This offers a way for some players to buy Gold with real money, and other players to buy Game Time without real money.
World of Warcraft releases a new content expansion roughly every 2 years.
End-game progression is locked behind the new expansion always, and the cost of purchase for existing players, is as much as a new player buying the Base Edition of World of Warcraft (which always includes the latest expansion).
