My suspicions would be that it's just going to be another 5k for the next tier of flying. Clearly Northrend is all cold and crappy, so you're going to need to learn some new way to fly your not-too-happy-to-be-there mount, and of course since it's a skill, they'll make you have to be L78 at least to get it. Money shouldn't be anything bigger. A lot of people don't realize why the money ratcheted up from Original to BC, and why it won't happen at the same rate. I believe we're at the economical plateau of WoW, and that there might be a slight increase to some things, but overall i think they're going to keep the economy functioning at the level it's at right now. There won't be a 10k gold sink mount, and they won't be tripling the quest reward money to make up for it. It's just that there was such a huge difference in the quality of the gear from Original to BC, rather than a smooth progression. They didn't have a good enough idea when planning the original where they'd need to be in the expansion, so loot didn't scale correctly. I'd like to think they've figured it out now, and the greens you get in Northrend won't be better than Black Temple loot and I'd like to think you wouldn't replace Sunwell loot until you're in L80 instances, at least not significantly. Lich King is not going to be the same change as Burning Crusade was. If it is, I'm not too sure it'll be nearly as successful.

All glory to the hypno-avatar.Say, wouldn't it be cool if they added a bunch of new mounts that are cooler than what we have for a money sink? I wouldn't complain.
