Awesome suggestions all; I've been wishing for buy orders ever since I came to this game in BC.As for suggestions for gold sinks, I think you're definitely on the right track. I've actually made a fair bit of money off things like tuxedos, diamond-tipped canes, and monocles from people tricking out their bank alts, and I think that's definitely a way to go.Personally, what I'd love to see is a mount-like item (perhaps with just a minor movement speed increase...), usable by lower level characters, that fit the image. A chauffeured limousine, perhaps? Another gold sink sure to attract true AH players: more storage. At my worst, I was dabbling in glyphs, pets, gems, enchantments, various crafted items, and mats of all kinds; I needed something like 5 or 6 different characters to manage various inventories, and even with a couple of guild banks, I was almost always out of space.

I like the mount idea, a slightly faster mount that is possibly account wide on new characters similar to the ones you can buy from their website but actually obtainable in game that maybe moves 10% faster than the level 20 mounts and then slightly faster than the 40 mounts by 10% or something along those lines. I'm think BoA Mount for leveling.Or they could just finally add BoA shields etc into the guild rewards tab that would certainly get some people spending their gold, there's many possibilities maybe we'll see more gold sinks in Mists for cool stuff like that.

Make the mount a handcart that is pulled by an npc in the model of the capital city you're in. It would only work in capitals, but talking to npc would bring up similar interface to the guards now where it tells you were everything is. Except! Selecting a location/npc would make the grunt take you to the location you selected. Auto Pilot in capitals!

"only works in capitals" is an excellent idea. Things that won't unbalance the game where it counts, but lets auction house players get direct advantages for what they do most.

We need the carriages from Gilneas complete with driver on the front, though Lorna Crowley and her shotgun on the roof are optional. Room to ride in comfort, storage space with all the trunks that are strapped onto it maybe the space to carry a friend or two with you. And all at an expensive purchase price... perhaps even a monthly or weekly upkeep cost for the hire of the driver, the stabling of the horses that pull it, not to mention the repair price needed for wheel spokes given how rough the Stormwind cobblestones are.I'm sure personal goblin zepps traversing the horde cities would be just as suitable for the same purpose :)
