    No question about it; it would be horrible and only the really poor people in game ("Look at how much gold these dailies are giving me") would notice a positive change.

    But I'm a huuuuuuuuuuuuge supporter of gold sinks. I really, really think Blizzard should implement LOADS more gold sinks. It would help, no doubt about it. Especially since the gold generation in MoP has been absolutely insane. Dailies give 50G and you get random 100-3000g for easy achievements/quests.

    Lower gold generation, implement a lot more gold sinks. Not forced gold sinks (5% AH fee, repair, reforge, transmog are really good as they are), but novelty items which are well designed. Both cheap and extremely expensive ones.

    Terrible Terrible Terrible idea.

    You do realize some people play just to make gold right? And you want to take this game away from them?

    I don't see any benefit from this, at all.

    Seriously this. WoW needs to introduce player-owned ships for epic sea adventures and ship combat. Piracy, trade routes, etc. Buying a ship and paying crew wages could be a big gold sink alone. Then add in ship upgrades like various ship models for speed vs armor, ship weapons, docking fees...

    Zero balance in your bank account. Maybe come up with a lore reason, maybe not, either way everyone has to rebuild their bankroll. Nothing allowed be on the AH within 48 hours of the wipe. All banks cleared of every stackable item, no food, no mats, no potions, maybe just a few "flavor" items saved by being flagged - Noggenfogger for example.

    How would you react?

    (Just throwing out fun hypotheticals here, this one I like because frankly many people feel "priced out" of raiding. Gems and enchants costing an arm and a leg on many servers.)
    You can level up Tailoring or Leatherworking for the price of half a dozen leg enchants, and from then onwards they are free.

    LOL, that's what I've been saying!

    How about this, how would YOU feel if at the beginning of every month IRL your bank account is set to 0. You have to work and save and scratch and claw from NOTHING every month? Would that be a fun hypothetical for you to think and deal with?
    Mfw this is pointless.
    Nobody wants their gold reset.

    I want a gold reset in D3 when the auction house is removed from the game, but that's a whole different story.
    A gold reset in wow? The idea is not too bad at the start (that's why OP brought it up) but the longer you think about, the worse it gets. eventually it is one of the worst ideas people have had, if not THE worst.

    Angry. Because things will be get more expensive at the end of an expansion for anything. If gold is wiped, people will shift gold into something that will transfer over to the next expansion. Gold itself will devalue so prices will shoot up. People late in the raiding will be priced out.

    That's why. And for me, x11. I have 11 90's, but trying to cut back to my original three.

    How else do you think they got all that gold into D3?

    i wouldnt care about mats as much as gold. mats you kinda get rid of anyway. but gold, even though its really easy to get now, is something that i connect to my character. the way i see it is ive been building up my gold little by little from the day i made my character. to have that wiped every new expansion would be a little off putting. not game breaking....just....a little strange

    During our many encounters with Wrathion during the expansion, he has corrupted our backpack with gold with black dragonflight magic.
    This was a last resort incase his plans went to shit (like they did). Wrathion now sits on a massive fortune, using this to his advantage to control the market, uniting the horde and alliance to fight he upcoming threat of the Burning Legion.

    @topic: i would be pissed. I have never been much of a farmer and have slowly built my "fortune" to ~220k gold. Just taking that away would be unsub level.

    Honestly, I would quit. No money for repairs, for consumables while questing (gotta restore that hp somehow), or even money for mailing. Money plays a important role. Mainly so you can repair and at least get food to restore your hp / mana. Add on top of it mats are now gone so I cannot even create new food items or even bandages? Gone. I don't farm in the least bit. I have only near 80k because of leveling my toons and selling off any herbs / ore / cloth / greens I ran across.

    All that is keeping my wife playing atm is to save gold for WoD. She has over 300K atm, and I am sitting around 40K myself. I don't want to give that up.

    I would likely sign a petition, and try to sue Blizzard.

    ...I never even tough about that for Diablo3 so yea..

    I spended alot off time getting the gold I have, especially also cause I'm not the best AH player when I still did it. Think I have like 300k atm.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
