It is unfortunate the plans dropped in price so quickly. The rate on them is quite high.

Billions should have never made it into the game. At least not until 2 years into the game. The RMAH is the reason stuff is so highly priced. For a person to farm 1 billion gold would take an extremely long time. This includes finding gg items. Sure you could say well 1 gg item could sell for 1 billion, but who's going to buy it? Only people who bought gold because nobody finds 1 billion gold coins.Now suppose you were extremely lucky and found 50 items that sold for 20 million gold each in your travels, chances are you wouldn't blow all that hard earned gold on 1 item considering 20 million gold items would be quite gg to begin with and you just sold 50 of them for 20 million.Basically, the ability to buy large sums of gold with real money inflates the market prices because there is an outside chance that one of these gold buys will get impatient and throw whatever gold it takes to get your 20 million gold item.
This game shouldn't have an AH or online economy in the first place, and the new crafting recipes were a step in the right direction. I've been very critical of D3 but these changes were clearly made based on the consideration of the vast majority of complaints from players.
02/17/2013 07:51 AMPosted by Abomb247Everyone should have access to good gear. 5 billion doesn't give that. People would still have better gear then others because of the way loot rolls. It just shouldn't cost 5 bill or over 20 million in fact.
This is like saying everyone should have access to a million dollar home. Well we all know the reality there. Hope that is a good analogy to help you understand.
Only sad thing about this is you. People wanted a reason to kill boss's blizzard gave them one. If the drop rates were very low that would defeat this whole idea. As for Boa I don't care as long as I get a great item. I'll vendor it or salvage it when I get an upgrade. I play to play, not to try and get enough cash to buy a power rangers action figure or what ever it is you want. I want to craft, now I can craft.
You're way all the plans would be out of reach for me just as the current items are. We don't all bot and flip.
Yes great plan if your loaded and have the gold to buy these very rare plans, then if the items were not boa you could create a monopoly and cash in.
You are exactly why Blizzard made the plans easy to get and the drops boa.
Hmmm I don't get why people say this. Billions isn't unrealistic for top gear.
would cost 400 million of hard fought gold instead of 40 billion of bought gold. And without the RMAH gold would be of greater value and naturally item prices would reflect that.02/17/2013 06:51 PMPosted by Abomb247The echoing fury that was 40billion
Remember when crafting was awesome. It was a vital part of this game. It was rare to have top crafting plans. ? Ahhhh the good old days.
