Allow sending money from Horde to Alliance

As it stands, the only way to send money from a Horde character to an Alliance character is to put an item up for auction using the neutral auction house in Booty Bay, have the character with the money buy the item, wait an hour, and collect the remaining money after the auction house takes their cut. If you want to do this by yourself, you need two accounts because you can't buy your own auctions.

With Bind on Battle.net accounts allowing trade of these items from Horde to Alliance characters, how long will it take before you can trade gold between your characters, as well? I Think we should be able to send gold to our opposite faction alts in order to bankroll them.


Thank you for your time.

Even if you have someone on the opposite faction who can get your money to the alt, you still have to go through the neutral AH to get the money over, and with the auction house cut, you aren't going to get all the money to your alt. You get the money minus however much they charged to let you do that. It's not the same as sending money to one of your alts through the mail. It sucks.

gold coins are gold coins, they don't have any faction relevance.

That could be said about almost every item in the game.

BoA items can't effect the economy of the opposite side.

Gold can.

They want to make you have to work for your cross-faction AH monopoly.

That could potentially wreck the server's economy on an imbalanced server.

You won't be able to. Allowing players to do that would allow gold farmers to move their ill-gotten goods across factions way to easily and make their illegal business a lot easier to function.

I feel confident saying that: Blizzard will NEVER allow gold to be traded across faction, outside of the Neutral AH feature.

I disagree with your suggestion

It is an act of treason to help support the enemy

The only things the faction leaders allow to be traded with the enemy are wounds and insults

As cross faction trade is prohibited by the faction leaders the goblins operate a black-market

The goblin AH 15% tax is totally understandable as it is a black-market house owned and operated outside of the law by those money grubbing goblins

They charge a lot more to meet the extra costs such as buying and outfitting special hollow bottom boats, paying for forged import documentation and for paying off the exorbitant bribes paid to customs officials, not to mention those shipments that do get rumbled thus causing a huge financial loss to the goblins

And as Holytrauma has already pointed out they have to reforge the gold coin to represent the appropriate faction leader

I am actually surprised the goblin tax is only 15% and not 30%, maybe the black-market AH tax should be increased

Never probably. Blizzard has already stated that they would like the two opposing factions to have separate economies.

Don't hold your breath.

To you fools talking about faction leaders on coins: what about the gold you get from killing bosses? I don't think C'thun has Thrall on his coins.

And a horde character sending super leveling gear (boa) to an alliance new recruit (alt) can be considered treason, but you can do it.

You are incorrect

How is it that each mob you kill drops cash and loot?

Easy, they are all on welfare

The tax on AH goes to pay welfare

The AH tax allows them the ability to buy the family some food and in some cases some luxury items

How does C'thun replace the items that keep getting stolen from him, easy the welfare payments allow him to restock for another week of raids

As such the gold coins are all minted

The Tuesday night shut down occurs because that is when the Welfare office opens and all the mobs and NPC's line up to get their welfare payment

I agree with your suggestion to cease the sending of BoA to the enemy

The BoA gear are actually Heirloom items

As such they pass down the line from father to son, from aunt to niece, or they are passed on through gifts to friends etc.

The opposing faction is the enemy and not related or friends and as such it make sense that Heirloom items cannot be gifted to the opposing faction
