The blog World of Warcraft Fortunes is collecting data on the outcomes of reading Mysterious Fortune Cards. The table summarizes the results of 2402 read Fortunes.

From the data—which does not yet include a 5000g Fortune—the average value of a Fortune is 2.6g. The long-term expected value of an unread Fortune thus depends primarily on the drop rate of the 5000g Fortune:

  • 1 in 10000 drop rate → 3.2g average.
  • 1  in  5000 drop rate → 3.7g average.
  • 1  in  2000 drop rate → 5.2g average.
