With the nice new things happening in 1.0.8, I expect monster density and multiplayer bonuses to bring back a lot of people who have stopped playing the game. The question I have is, will this drive up the cost of items in the AH?
Basically, gold will probably get more expensive when there are more people buying it. That seems obvious, but what happens with items seems less obvious to me. More people will be farming and selling stuff, and more people will be buying it. Can experienced players (who have been through this cycle many times before) tell me whether my ability to spend gold on great items will be better or worse after the patch comes out and we have more players around?
