I bought enough platinum in Everquest to know that not only does it hurt the economy, but it's actually pretty futile.All the money you spend on having the best gear, it just gets replaced by better gear that's unpurchaseable, especially in the higher levels. And if you're in the lower levels, it's pretty easy to just outlevel all that gear anyway. And if you're not spending it on gear, what are you buying? Tradeskill mats? To do what with, exactly?

Actually, not really any of those. It's the damn epic flying skill cost. The hefty price tag on that "fuels the fire" with the fight against gold sellers. Having something everyone wants cost such a high price is virtually going to garruntee folks are going to cut corners. I prefer not to (grinding mine out now) but that's not to say even I haven't thought about it. 3K would have not only kept the epics from being a hand out, but also be more obtainable than at it's current price.

@Diabla - Ahh. I haven't gotten there yet, so I guess that's why I didn't think of that. Guess that one's Blizzard's fault then...they could have just done what EQ did and make mounts obsolete by adding their own "Plane of Knowledge".... one area that ports to every area in the game...I'm not sure if I'd want it to be that easy to get around in WoW, but I suppose it couldn't hurt for what seems to be their goal of getting everyone leveled and geared quickly to be ready for new content, and lessening the need for all that currency in the market.For the record, Shattrath is a sorry excuse for a transportation hub, especially if you're not actually supposed to be there yet [mage portal].
