Anyone thinking that shutting down easy to use Bots like Glider is not going to have a price impact on common farmed AH items (Metals, Leather, Fish and other like items) is being a bit naive on how much farmed items are injected into the WoW economy. I do a lot of buying and reselling on the AH on my server and I do notice that it is the same people who post large quantities of the same farmed items. Any person posting 1000 leathers on AH per day or every other day is clearly farming these items with a bot. Removing large quantity farm bots from WoW will have a large impact on the prices.I even made a bet with someone that when Glider goes away, if it ever does, you will see prices jumps as the base cost of certain items jumps. However, I think this will have a negative impact on Gold Selling since the cost of items in WoW will jump and people turn to Gold Sellers to get more gold. I also think this in turn will increase account hacking as Gold Sellers (A good chunk of them Account Hackers) try to get more gold to sell.Personally, I think it is a great thing they are shutting down these people but I don't like the method they did it in. They kinda help burn down an entire country to save a single village.
