I wanted to ask you guys about Area of effect looting and its effect on the economy.It seems to me that AOE looting works for games like SWTOR because out of all the enemies you kill, only a small number have loot.My concern with wow AOE looting is that people will be able to loot old dungeon and raid content much more quickly and essentially make the economy very cash heavy.Do you think this is a possibility?

I doubt it'll make an appreciable difference. The stuff that people are soloing won't drop more loot; they'll just be picking it up a little faster. Most of the time involved, in my experience, if running from one group of mobs to the next, not so much the killing and looting.Although that could just be subjective thing, since the running bit is what I find the most boring.On the other hand, it probably does make it more likely people will actually loot the piles of dead things they leave behind them.

I'd argue it will take up the bag economy. I know I'm already shopping for the largest ones I can find as it may make skipping loot slightly less favorable.

no more than it is now because the 5 dungeons per hour limit will still be in place.
