Mike and Psy ... your both wrong.The position "pro-gold" farmers always take is one of "drives prices down" or "supplies you with things you would not get otherwise".The problem is that both of those positions are untenable as a matter of economics in a closed system and completely ignore a basic tenant of a virtual economy: Blizzard sets Prices and Drop rates.Eliminate the gold farmers and Blizzard can replicate their production by adjusting a few settings in their databases. Poof! more of everything rare drops. Blizzard has magical powers don-cha-know!Reality is that drop rates are set lower then they should be BECAUSE OF FARMERS. Once they are gone, then Blizzard can tune stuff "up" so normal schmoo's like you and me can get a piece of the action.Professional Offshore Gold Farmers are BAD for the general populace of WoW and once they are gone, things will actually get better for the average player.
