The bloke, "Shaks" bought the Level 70 Night Elf Rogue character, one careful owner, no rust, complete with the Twin Blades of Azzinoth and four out of five pieces of the Tier 6 armour set.
The careful owner was "Zeuzo" from the Method guild on the Sylvanas server and the elf seems to have become the property of Shaks from the Kazzak server.
The move earned Shaks 15 minutes of fame in the gaming community who all wished they had that sort of cash.
However Blizzard is apparently incandescent with rage over the sale which it says breaks a lot of its rules.
According to Portalit, the character has been banned since September 3.
Shaks is apparently thinking of suing Blizzard and Zeuzo. µ
