The Warcraft Millionaire. Speaking of controversy: when Brad Johnson – author of the Warcraft Millionaire – first released a screenshot of his character’s bank account, WoW players were shocked into disbelief. Many of them even accused Brad of Photoshopping the screenshot. Eventually, Brad was able to prove the veracity of his claims – that he is indeed the richest World of Warcraft player, if not one of the richest World of Warcraft players today. And his secrets are revealed in his tell-all guide, the Warcraft Millionaire. The Warcraft Millionaire is different from other World of Warcraft gold making guides because the book is a personal account of Brad’s own experiences. He speaks of his techniques based on how he himself has implemented them and how he himself has benefited from them. The result is a memoir-like manual unlike any other gold farming guides you’ll ever get to read.
