A quick guide on how to obtain and spend the Attendant’s Token of Merit currency in World of Warcraft
There are so many different currencies and items in World of Warcraft that it can be hard to keep them all straight. Every patch introduces even more currencies which makes things even harder. In this quick guide, I want to highlight one of the most recent patch 9.1 additions, a currency called Attendant’s Token of Merit.
What is Attendant’s Token of Merit?
Attendant’s Token of Merit is a currency awarded through the weekly great vault instead of gear. If you have qualified for loot in the great vault, you can choose to collect 3 Attendant’s Token of Merit instead of gear. These tokens can then be used to obtain other resources, which I will talk about in a moment.
Where do you use/spend tokens?
You can spend your Attendant’s Token of Merit at the Exchange Specialist vendor, Ko’tul, in Oribos. He is a broker that is standing near the great vault, just south of the guild bank. His exact location is /way 63.8, 36.0.
What can you buy with tokens?
You can use tokens to purchase Korthite Crystals, stygia, anima, soul ash, or catalogued research. The Korthite Crystals are sold in a “geode,” which contains 5 crystals at a price of 3 tokens. The rest of the resources can be purchased for 1 token at the following exchange rates per token.
- 500 stygia
- 250 soul ash
- 175 anima
- 500 catalogued research (no rep)
As an important note, all supplies are bind on pick up and are not account bound. The only one you can trade to other characters or players is the Korthite Crystals. Hence, if you want to make money from spending your tokens, your best bet is exchanging for crystals.
The attendant’s tokens are an excellent alternative to taking a piece of gear that you don’t want from the great vault. Instead of disenchanting unusable gear, you can collect 3 tokens as a reward each week to use for other currencies. If you want to make gold from the tokens, your only option is to buy Korthite Crystal Geodes and sell them on the auction house.
