This entire post is preposterous. It speaks of the cost of items as though Blizzard sets those costs. They don't. They're set by the player base. If people are willing to pay 50g/stack for heavy leather, then there will be people selling it for that price. It has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of gold Blizzard gives you from 80-85. On that point, in fact, you should look at how much more it costs to repair, to fly from one point to another, or to buy from vendors. Those are the points of the economy Blizzard controls, not the cost of mats in the AH. You NEED more gold during those levels, and the game provides it.I think the best option to curb gold sellers is to go after hacking, to secure the game. Period. Then, if people decide to sell their gold for real money, and other people decide to buy it, more power to them. It wont effect my game whatsoever. Gold is very easy to earn. On my main server I have 9 level 85's, all with epic flying, and about 115K gold to spare. I've never even considered buying gold, because it's just easy to earn it using the economy that has been established for us by Blizzard. People who buy gold are just lazy, and they aren't likely to commit to the game in the long run anyway, as it *does* take time to accomplish real goals, goals that gold can't buy.So if Blizzard effectively kills hacking, then gold sellers will rely on their own game time to make the gold they sell. The result will be that gold will become far more expensive to buy with real-world dollars and those that do have more money to burn than I do, and, again, won't hurt the game in any way I can predict.
