Did you really justified ingame payments with real money? really? This means basically that any item worth it will be placed in the real currency AH, since you can make real money out of it. Players not willing to pay real money for items will be left with an AH with second quality items.Blizzard knows this, and of course they will put their claws in any transaction made.

From the looks of things there will be a charge to simply list the item regardless of whether or not it sells.

I agree with your point wholeheartedly, which is why it is so devilishly genius of them.

That was my first thought. Good luck finding anything worthwhile on the gold AH. People will want to get that cash for premium items, and I can't say I blame them. Who wouldn't want to come out of a couple hours' of dungeoning with $50 or so worth of items? Judging by the prices in the screenshots, that's not an unreasonable amount. And heck, that's almost more than some people get paid for a whole night of legal labor.I really hope Blizz knows what they're doing with this. It sounds very interesting, but also very precarious.

i believe it is said somewhere that "hardmode" characters CANNOT buy AH items with real money. they can only buy AH items that cost in-game gold.
