After 4 years of taking economics courses for the hell/fun of it, I feel like I should post this here.
So we are at the left most tip of the demand curve here, say in a couple of months we should be in the center, then in a year, well… you do the math.
So now a derpy item will cost a leg and arm, but in a year or two, when the market is flooded with it, it will be well dirt cheap.
Also, wouldn’t it be less fun to play the game if you just purchased everything? In essence, pay to flip a bit on Blizzard’s server to the desired result… Which in essence takes the whole idea of random drop, and work for your gear away?
Sure, I can work in my day time, and get the top equipment for my characters, then what? click, kill, loop?
