I think this is interesting only because inflation has not occurred. Primal mana are still for around 16g on my server.I think this kind of screws up gold farmers also, who would pay real money for gold which can be earnt quickly?But the main reason I like it....I can buy flyers for my alts, and I respec without complaining of the costs.No one needs to buy mats anymore anyway, all crafted items are not as good as the badge loot.Imagine blowing 8 primal mights and a stack of others on a purple 1H sword that does 81 dps :PBut yes inflation would be bad...imagine playing WoW for the first time and buying a greenhills of stranglethorn page for 5g!

Those who would buy gold will continue to buy gold regardless of the availability of gold making avenues. There have always been opportunities to make gold, relatively quickly, and there are certainly guides to help you. I'd imagine what's motivating those to buy gold is the same that motivates those to buy characters. Wanting to get to a certain point in the game, without having to put in effort. (See those who only ever played Doom with god mode on). What I appreciate is that it has opened up some easily accessible dailies for me that don't require an attunement. I had never done dailies until the SSO quests popped up, (which is pretty n00by of me, admitted), but these quests have given me the ability to start making some headway towards those epic flyers the rest of my grind-willing guild already has. But I don't think the ease of access to these quests is going to deter gold buyers. If anything, maybe just make it easier for the gold sellers to have more gold in their reserves.-Rahr Visit me at Lock and Roll
