The problem with the vendor idea is that it IS directly selling gold in that case. The main argument people have used that this -isn't- is that it is not actually generating new gold into the economy of a server, simply switching it around, from one player to another. A vendor, however, CREATES gold and if you could guarantee even a couple thousand gold for ten dollars, that would make things even worse. Many have wanted a gold sink for this expansion, as there is little to spend a lot of money on unless you do buy the BOE epics. I, myself, have near 100k gold without even actually ever trying for it. It's just amassed through doing dailies, quests, and occasionally selling volatiles. I've even bought a pricey BOE weapon for my druid since I kept being unlucky. That knocked me down a bit, but I'm back to 95k again around a month later... and I've barely played this month besides the horseman. Things are selling for 25k because people don't know what to do with their gold otherwise. But that doesn't mean it's healthy for the economy.
