    xD i dont think you understand what "devalues" means, if anything its the other way, while we will experience a rise in overall prices, in the long run they will be much stable and wont suffer an inflation as long as no stupidly insane methods of generating gold come into play ,like the garrison.

    Yes. There's plenty of stuff I'd like on the real money store but would never spend cash on. Meanwhile gold falls from the sky in WoW.

    I dont use it. A couple people I used to raid with run alt bot accounts for gold to keep their gbanks filled so far as Blizzards wet noodle bans make botting still more cost effective for them.

    Almost anyone who likes it (such as myself) has/had a ton of gold and spent it all on tokens since gold has little to no value outside of vanity items or BNet currency (esp since you can get pretty much anything you want with the hundreds of bloods the game throws you).

    Almost anyone who doesn't like it are those who never got enough gold/are still clueless about how good the Order Hall (like the Garrison) gives you gold, and how much free shit they're missing out on.

    Everyone who doesn't follow above are the ones who don't care.

    But yes I do love having ~$500 BNet currency.
    Uses the same signature for over a year, just randomly gets infracted for it recently.
    Placeholder signature is placeholder and will hopefully make me finish my shit.
    Oh yeah, I'm a Druid and stuff.

    No, not because I dislike the concept, but because it made my monthly cost for paying almost twice as high.
