    I mainly play Guild Wars 2, and they got a cash store with various of stuff, like cosmetics, boosters, quality-of-life items, but nothing that makes you stronger against other players if you ever PvP. I can see their reasons behind a cash store, since the game is Buy to Play.

    World of Warcraft?

    Well, it looks like they have noticed that the cash store is a very good income.

    Level 90 characters for $100, seems reasonable

    exp elixers, not sure about stack of 20

    garrison upgrades... sounds terrible

    mount flight training... sounds terrible

    mounts... normal

    pets... normal

    transmog items... sure, but if they are ones like Replica PVP or heirloom. NO THANKS. That's just unfair to the pvpers again. 1800 Might not be much for some people, but if they cant put in ANY effort at all.....
    Why are Dungeons and Scenarios mash-fests that take less time than the actual queue or wait list? What a waste of content design...

    I only agree if it is 100% vanity. If it can provide any boosts in any way, shape or form, whether it is just making something easier or whatever, then no.

    Prior to account-wide mounts I considered the mounts P2W since alts wouldn't have to buy a new mount. For the pets before Mists they were vanity, now they can help in pet battles, and are all rare quality. I don't know how good they are, but they should be banned from pet battles.

    The helms? Don't care. However I would be sad if they do alot of nice armor in the store, but it isnt P2W.

    Experience pots, honor gain pots, anything that makes stuff easier in game needs to go. Nobody should get anything easier by paying real money.

    For your vanity only, it SHOULD not include 1800 replica gear either. That's effort to get too atleast, some people PVP just for it.

    100 per max level character? Screw that, maybe 25/30.

    Yes, it´s infuriating to be able to buy stuff in the game instead of opening a browser window. Oh wait, it´s not.

    This is something that F2P games should do, not games with a monthly sub...

    This.

    When I pay subscriptions and the expansions price is immoral to sell content.
    Make the expansions free or sell ingame items , but noth both at once.

    Why complain over an optional feature such as this? Don't like the extra content, don't buy it. Don't want to pay for an insta-90, don't.
    High elves can be playable. You have nothing against them except for population arguments (which we have no numbers on), a blue post (which is already retconned based on the fact that Blood elves are playable), and an Encyclopedia (which hasn't been updated since pre-TBC; and the Silver Covenant makes two out of three claims on their status within the Encyclopedia void). So yes, High elves are just as likely as any other race in-terms of playability.

    Is developed by developers payed from my subscription money.

    Okay, and if Blizzard decides to implement an in-game cash shop, what will you do? Is that warrant enough for you to quit?

    It's an optional feature. We pay for a lot of crap that Blizzard hands out to us based on our subscription money, why should this affect you more than other things that have occurred over the past few expansions?

    this.

    See.. defend this shit all you want, you can be the biggest mouth breathing blizzard fanboy, who thinks the devs fart rainbows. But, as many people have said, time and again, they are a business, and within that frame of mind, they have stopped looking at players as people, as fans, as now only look at them as money making assets. Don't fool yourself, they try and convince you they have your fan interest at heart, but it only ever extends to how they can work that fandom into money.

    The fact they invent a shop, an ingame or out of game store, for there game, where you spend money to buy items that 'you don't necessarily need to play', well every other mmo might have these, but as Klavier says, those games DON'T HAVE A SUBSCRIPTION, Infact some of them don't even have you pay for the game itself, the F2P ones, they might have cash shops, but I've played several fp2 mmos with these, and found it has exactly the same shit on them blizzard has with there store, novelty items, mounts, boosts.

    How can people not see this as anything other there the most corporate greedy move a game company can perform?

    I like the idea of accessing the store from in game. I don't like the idea of expanding the store beyond Mounts, pets, and transmog.

    The rest, getting a bit too close for comfort.

    I'm not okay with pay to win. I don't mind bypassing leveling because its boring and no one really enjoys it. You should never be able to buy gear or other things that give you an advantage over someone. You should have to earn your in game rewards just like everyone else.

    In game store can have the following items and i'd be okay with it: Mounts, Pets, leveling potions, level advancement to 90. --- Anything else is pushing it. Maybe transmog gear if it's new stuff, though i'd be kinda mad if they put all their effort into that instead of making the current gear look good.

    As long as they keep to selling vanity items, I would agree with it whether it is in-game or not doesn't matter.
