the problem with a new goldsink is that a lot of hardcore auctioneers don't buy them, if you follow greedy goblin, he's capped several times, and he considers the goldsinks to be a waste of time, and I know a lot of players who think the same. if the only incentive to spend your massive motherlode of money is having a pretty mount, a lot of people aren't going to bother.

So ... what *do* these people spend their gold on? Or is it that they just accumulate massive amounts of gold as an end in itself, and the exorbitant prices the rest of us pay at the AH is merely a side effect?

@Fletcher - For the huge AH players, that *is* the game for a lot of them. Simply accumulating wealth. Others find it a joy to manipulate whole server economies because they have the assets to hold a whole market hostage for months at a time. It's less an MMO and more an economic/cash building game.

It doesn't matter so much that these guys are gold-capped, if all they're doing is using it to make more money and sleeping in a bed of gold like a dragon. Inflation comes when they get spendy.

Haha..if someone caps out multiple characters with no intentions of ever spending any of it, then they ARE a gold sink. :P
