    I couldn't, because I would then be an accomplice to the ruining of a game I love. Inflation is a problem in WoW right now, but Blizzard's contribution would crush the game's economy, and then it essentially becomes a game you can only play if you purchase currency. Don't take this as saying I'm against gold buying and selling- I participate in that myself. However, that is a tradition, and as much as a part of the game as anything else. It's kind of hard not to be romantic about WoW heh

    No.

    For the people that think you need to buy gold, you probably don't. Just take a few hours to learn how to properly use Trade Skill Master, level some professions and start crafting; it very quickly turns into logging on for 5-10 minutes and making thousands; of course, if you invest a lot more time into it (playing the AH, researching other markets, staying online to undercut etc) you'll make a lot more gold, but every single friend that i've helped set up TSM has found themselves with more than enough gold for what they want without putting any real effort into crafting/auctioning (beyond the initial learning curve)

    If blizzard started selling gold I would see it as an act of desperation and I would abandon ship as fast as I possibly could.

    I will delete all my Charachters, my accounts, uninstalling wow and battle.net app and surely never playing another blizzard game, if i'm paying 13€ a month is because i know things like this will never happen(I hope).

    Probably not. Blizzard has already made a foray into RMT with Diablo 3. With their cut of 15% AND PayPal's cut of 15%, gold prices from Blizzard direct are going to sell for 30% above market value.

    This is the case with EVE Online and PLEX. Yea, you could just buy PLEX and sell it in-game for ISK, but you're losing 30-40% of the value than you would if you just bought directly from another player.

    Nope! It would pretty much destroy the player set economy. If it were to happen I foresee many, many folks quitting. Or /ragequit

    A strong rmt market should be a reflection of a great game that is love by the players and not the needs of a bad one in order to pay bills.

    Well said my friend. Giving someone a money printer even if it's for a digital world is still a bad idea especially for us with shallow pockets. I would much rather people "earn" their gold we already saw what happened with Diablo 3 even when Blizzard just wanted to middle man.

    It would pretty much destory the whole game and most of the players would stop playing, so the answer would be NO, and probably never. It is already enough that they added Level boost in the Shop.

    The only way Blizzard would sell gold is if they reworked the whole looting system & made it like Diablo 3 where everything is account bound and gold has absolutely no use other than repairs and crafting.

    Please don't compare the AH system that existed in Diablo 3 to what could be implimented in WoW - both games are completely different. Not to mention WoW has a subscription while Diablo 3 does not have any.

    No, but I never bought gold anyway. When/if they start to sell gold, the game will die.
