I was just reading a new blue post about how Repairs are an important and "helpful" gold sink, as well as other things like Void Storage. I'm here to laugh about how that could not be more wrong.
Now hear me out before flaming, because I actually love the idea of Void Storage, I just hate how they've implemented it. Yes, it was nice to give players more storage, and yes, it was smart to make it a tiny bit costly as a gold sink, but think about this: Of all the players reading this who have their Void Storage 100% filled, since they implemented Transmogging from your storage, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU WITHDRAWN AN ITEM OR DEPOSITED ONE INTO IT? I'm willing to bet a good 95% of you would say "not once".
And therein lies the problem. This feature that was meant for more storage only comes with 80 slots, and once you fill them, you can mog anything you want from there. There's no more gold sink past the initial cost and the deposit fee x80 because there's no more space and ZERO reason to withdraw from it now!
While GC said it wasn't meant to be endless, I don't see why this would be such a bad thing. People want to keep their cool-looking gear, or even their ugly ones, for transmog, nostalgia/memories, because you can't get it ever again, or because it has a special meaning. But for some unknown reason, it caps out at 80 slots, then it NEVER TOUCHED AGAIN because you can transmog directly from it, so what's the point of it in the first place if we just had 80 additional slots in our bank, except for a small initial fee/80 tiny deposit fees?
So I'd like to propose that the service should have a good 4 or 5 pages on it (giving you 320-400 slots). That makes it not infinite while seeming infinite in addition to providing more gold sink. We shouldn't have to vendor our gear if we don't want to just because of space issues.
