It is unreasonable to expect a new, fresh 60 to know just how much the AH can help them, and just how to make so much money. You have a lot of gold. Good for you. Seriously, no sarcasm, I'm happy for you. Me? Not so much.A brand new, fresh level 60 will not have 600 gold or more unless he is an exceptional player or had friends giving him lots of tips (that he followed). Many new players make the same common mistakes (in terms of maximising gold): not taking two gathering professions, buying gear from the Ah that will soon be outlevelled, vendoring things that they have no use for. It's unreasonable to expect a new player to know as much about the game as a vet, including how to make a lot of gold.Not to mention with the levelling speed being constantly increased through things like RAF, heirloom items, and the like; levelling is getting faster and faster. It's unreasonable to expect a player to stick around questing in an area that either is or will soon be grey simply to finish every single quest for maximum gold. There are several zones I skip altogether because by the time I'm done with, say, HFP and Zangar, I'm already of level to go straight to Nagrand (65, sometimes 66 even). That means no Terrokar.I have alts. I don't want nor enjoy doing every single quest on every single alt. I don't want nor enjoy spending months levelling a single alt. Yes, I want to take the fastest possible route to 80. Most people do, and since that's how most people play that's whom Blizzard caters to. That's why they lowered the cost, and I applaud them for it. More gold to do with what I want? Awesome. Maybe I can buy bigger bags, or put it away towards epic flight.Judging by your logic, it wouldn't be unreasonable to charge 50k gold for epic flying. Since you had well over that at one point. I can tell you with absolute certainty I will never see that kind of gold in this expansion, unless major changes are made to the amount of gold you get through questing, like the change from vanilla to TBC (where an epic land mount in vanilla was an awesome feat to show off, and now most folks have thousands of gold with nothing to do with it at max level.)I don't enjoy dailies. I don't enjoy playing the AH. I don't enjoy farming. I'm not thinking "How can I maximize my gold?" while I'm levelling. And I don't think the average player is, either.
