Goldflation Happens



For ages now players of World of Warcraft have seen their in-game
market prices rise and rise and rise. What's causing the massive amount
of inflation? Is it something that Blizzard has done or is it something
way more nefarious and is there any hope in our future? Find out the
answers to these questions in Gold is the Next Silver!


Before the expansion this was brewing. Prices on
things were so high no
new player could afford any item without a gathering trade skill that
they could barter their gathered goods at the inflated prices. Higher
level players were perfectly fine with the prices since money was
somewhat easy to get, especially for raiders who could obtain the Nexus
Crystals en masse. However, after the expansion the inflation finally
reached the point where it is now.
