No more then buying Heroic Lich King weapons, titles, and mounts...or Heroic Ragnaros weapons, titles, and mounts, OR Heroic Madness weapons, titles and mounts...
So being as it's not new and players have been buying raid gear since before I started playing I don't think there's anything game breaking here as far as the economy goes.
Competition is not only fun for many, but it's extremely healthy for the longevity of "games." Without competition humans would never be inclined to participate in games.
sounds like the BMAH just brought about a whole new type of competition for each server's 1%. Since only 1 person can win, I see these auctions becoming very competitive. So you make a good point in support of the BMAH.
09/30/2012 04:19 AMIn many servers, guilds compete to be the first to down the boss, whether it is world first, or server first. Don't you think a person with that extra piece of heroic is going to have such an unfair advantage over the rest?

Nope...no more then winning epic heroic loot gives them an "unfair" advantage over the next 10 man guild who killed a heroic boss and only got shards to drop. So does it give the winner an advantage? Yep sure does. Is it unfair? Nope. Everyone on the server had a chance to roll on it. If you want your guild to have that 1 item edge, you need to do what it takes to win it.
Horrible Concept. I accept vanity items being sold on the BMAH, but Heroic Loot should never be sold on the BMAH
Exactly! Everyone knows that Heroic Loot should only be sold by other players! Where there's no restrictions or limits and everyone on the server with enough gold can simply buy full sets of Heroic Loot and mounts and titles.

Yep. This is what winners do.
