    The only people who don't already have over 250k gold are the ones selling it to gold sellers.

    That's an easily reachable target given 6+ months.

    Day 1 of patch 5.4, there is a vendor who will sell you a legendary cape for 250k.
    Wouldnt have it

    This the only way to accomplish gaining it? If it's a choice of either grind gold or do the quest line, sounds fine to me. If buying with gold is the only way, that'll definitely promote gold selling. Hell I'd be sorely tempted to find cheap gold myself.
    Vote with your wallet if you don't like something. Otherwise just keep your mouth shut.

    Dumb idea. I have well over 250k already... Lots of people don't even have 10k at the moment. Basing raid progression on who happens to bother saving gold is a really weak bad idea.

    Great for gold sellers though...

    This would be a bad idea. Gold sellers, however, would be able to retire after 5.4 dropped.

    Fantastic way to encourage gold selling. Horrendously boring game design. I can only assume this is a troll.

Or at least consider going into the gold farming business.
    You dont need to farm it, just play on AH and you'll have 250k in a week.

    A week? Come on man, this is the forums. You're supposed to say that you'll bring that in daily.

It's a much more efficient process of getting mass quantities of gold than compromising accounts is, which isn't to say they don't hack accounts but they just don't need to do it as much.
    Once again the point is that gold sellers are not making their OWN gold. They are just moving gold around that has been obtained from other players.

    Blizzard has nerfed actual gold farming pretty hard almost everywhere in the game. Remember, all the gold that's in the game comes from:

    * Mob drops
    * Quest rewards
    * Vendors

    You can create 2-400 new gold per hour via the above but that's all.
