To be honest, Tamarin, I had an article written in that very tone before I ended up writing this one instead. Yes, it gives in game functionality for real money, and yes, they have said on the forums that they don't do that, but Blizzard has always categorized auctioneering with vanity pet collectors and vanity achievement collectors. It's not something that seems core enough to protect from the "no in game advantage for real money" guideline.Still, I can afford to buy every single BoE in the game many times over, and if I had the desire to have multiple raiding toons, I could buy them into very decent starter raiding gear without having to do nearly as much grinding of 5 man content as normal players. If this doesn't count as a core in game advantage that shouldn't be purchasable, then I don't know where Blizzard draws the line.
