    I'm glad you're confident in daddy Blizzard's decision. I'm not. With transfers this is a cash grab, without it's fine.

    Looks like they stressed that the 90 days is no hard set date, which is more promising. I'm more interested in just starting fresh and kinda reliving when I leveled a dwarf paladin back in 2008.

    That's all they have to say.
    Agreed. They need to say something like this and take pre-emptive actions with this. If not, its going to be 90 glorious days aaaaand.. its over.

    I could maybe understand allowing boosts after a given timeframe for those who are slow at leveling or just hate it but allowing transfer from other realms completely defeats the purpose of a fresh realm.

    The more I think about it, the more I think people transferring in after 90 days won’t have THAT much impact…

    You can only transfer a limited amount of gold. The rest has to be converted to goods to transfer. The conversion rate would be absolutely abysmal though…

    You’re buying the goods on a server with huge inflation, so the “item” costs 1000g a piece there. You then transfer to the new server without the huge inflation, and the price of that same thing is only 200g there. You’ve just cut your gold reserves by 80%.

    On top of that, because you’re flooding the market, the price will drop so the 80% cut to gold may well become like 90%…
    A tiny problem with that. Just a small one. Like a complete opposite of sorts. While technically the raw gold isn't the exact same number anymore, you STILL own the items. Your wealth doesn't dip down 80-90%; on the contrary, it rises up.

    Let's say for the sake of argument that you have 220k gold on old server, and wish to move to the new. Without recalling the transfer limit, let's say it's 20k to ease the example. So, you transfer 20k in raw gold, and buy 200 of those 1000 gold items of different sorts. All of which just happen to be 200 gold on the new server.

    You arrive happily on the new server with 200 items worth 200 gold each now, as opposed to 1000 gold in the old realm? What happened? What did you lose? Nothing, you own the exact same items. But wait, what about the 20k in raw gold? That is unchanged, and in the old realm that would have got you 20 items extra. Twenty. Now in the new realm it would afford you 100. Yup, a hundred. So, now your fortune is worth 300 of those 1k ticket items, as opposed to 220 in the old realm. Not exactly forced to march to a poor house with the "cut gold".

    This just calls for a stricter gold cap though. The point about transferring wealth through items still stands, which is seen as the big problem by many people.

    And the argument was never that they’d have no impact, just that the impact would be rather limited. Perhaps to the point where one may wonder why a person would bother transferring there.
