They should stop raising the gold cap.

Many of the really really wealthy players are running more than 1 account, with 10 toons on the server.Guy in my guild has something like 5 accounts.That gold cap is irrelevant because you can always have more toons, and if you set it really low, the middle class start bouncing off of it.

I would agree with this - the jump between the last gold cap and the current hasn't done anything except encourage people to gain more wealth. Those who play the game solely (or mainly) for the AH are pretty creative and can get to cap with concerted effort, even a more casual AH-player (like myself) can have achieved gold cap by this time or earlier ... and then what? Simply start a new toon to transfer more gold to in order to continue trying to reach cap.

Hell, if I had 10 toons on a server that were all gold capped, what I would do is create a 1 man guild bank, and cap that. (Assuming that the guild bank **can** cap in the first place)Fill that up, make another. And then another until its not feasible anymore. And honestly, if you have that much gold, try spending it on stuff or do charities?

@VSUEach toon can carry 2m: 1m in the bag on the toon and 1m in a guild bank.

You silly fellow. Do you not realize that every character that holds and keeps gold in excess of the amount they spend is removing that money from the economy? They have the *potential* to spend that money, sure. But unless they spend it, it has been removed from the economy for any practical measure.The most that can be said is that the population with those incredible stores of money may cause people to inflate prices in an effort to entice that money from those hoarders. If you DO go and spend it, that money is of course no longer out of the economy.The best case (for removing money from the economy) is where someone gets gold capped, becomes bored, and deletes the character (and the money). Money gone, poof!
