World of Warcraft addicts beware: You can now unlock Overwatch loot boxes by earning gold in World of Warcraft.

The conversion process works thanks to some recent changes Blizzard made to WoW Tokens. These Tokens, as WoW players know, can be purchased for $20 of real-world money and sold at the Auction House for a good chunk of in-game gold. Conversely, players can spend in-game gold to buy these Tokens and convert them back into real world money—of a sort.

Previously, WoW Tokens could be exchanged for subscription time, essentially waiving the game’s $15 a month subscription fee. Now, though, they can also be turned into $15 of Battle.net credit, and that money can be spent in Blizzard’s other games. In other words, your WoW gold could become an Overwatch loot box, a pack of Hearthstone cards, or a Heroes of the Storm character unlock.

If you don’t already play, or intend to play, World of Warcraft, then this isn’t a system that will do much for you; you’ll put $20 in to get $15 of credit out. If you have heaps of gold lying around in WoW, though, then this could be a great way to put your grinding time to good use.

You can find the full transaction details on Blizzard’s page here.
