One detail gone unmentioned is the fact that gear in D3 is not soulbound. I fail to see how this does not end up with the market being flooded by endless amounts of copies of the same gear, resulting in a steady drop into nothingness in terms of per-item value.There better be some serious gold sinks, or gold inflation will run rampant.On another note, this is such a huge deal for Blizzard financially. It's comparable to the poker rooms that charge a 5% rake, generating millions and millions of $. Frankly I expect them to make more than $15 a month per customer from this, averaged.All this being said, I'm very intruiged by the whole notion and can't wait for it to play out. I predict it eventually comes to WoW, along with a switch to a new currency. I also predict "WTB AH" being introduced to encourage trade and, by the way, strongly discourage AH pros.
