@GolisBlizzard has already expressed their desire NOT to sell things that would throw off in-game balance, and I don't see this philosophy ever changing. If WoW were to be free-to-play, the microtransactions would most likely come in the form of things that don't effect the skill or powers of the player, like vanity pets and mounts, cosmetic gear, guild halls, or some other sort of stuff of that nature. This would probably be just as profitable too, considering that the SuperSpecialAwesome Star Pony theoretically made several million dollars withing ten minutes of it being available. Overall, though? Maybe seeing a f2p system could nice. It'd be cool to see me only really paying for what I need or want, rather than paying $15 for some content I don't use all the time. I'm not sure, I haven't really had any good experinces with a f2p model.
