Well so much for "Asia first" when this isn't just the ptr for Asia, thanks for buying those helms guys and telling them to go right on ahead with the xp flask. Also nice that we get a nice little button to show our support for the shop that we have no choice of getting rid of on our bar, the only games I've ever played with a button like that are completely f2p or you're playing a trial version.

So, what's Blizzard official reasoning behind the store?
"Shit, we've been giving people all these free ways to increase XP-gains, why have we not though of selling it for money instead?"
here we go again why does a sub based game rule out a cash shop? I pay a sub for cable tv, if I want something extra (movie, dvr, extra channel) I pay extra, should I complain that it should be free since I pay a sub?
If they wanted it to be rare they'd put it behind a skill-cap, not a pay-wall.
Only issue with that is that this isn't a service, or access to one. This is something they've added to the game several times for free. The fact that they're starting to charge for it now shows a scary change in their philosophy.

Can't see it being too expensive maybe $10 for 5 of them.
Though, for $20 I can play a raf account and dual box 1-80 with 300% experience, only real benefit is 85-90.
Err.. is this really necessary in a game which has monthly fee?
I cant care less for the store so long they not add +Honor and +Rep and +loot, extra loot tokens and stuff to it! It is just like the mount and pet store they not add anything extra to the game! ALSO so happy sunsong farms is not longer important in the next Xpack!

As far as i see we are going down the path of a f2p game model (at least shop wise), except they will never go to f2p with millions of subs.

I won't but thats not really my point. I mean not only the elixir.
Remarkable really. The devs aren't even trying to acknowledge there money hording greed in having an item shop in a subscription based game, there outright throwing it at us.
