Reaper of the Economy (ROE)... Rebirth of the AH/RMAH

General Discussion
The new economy is going to decimate the existing economy.

1. Existing godly equip is becoming worthless in contrast to 2.0 (I guess having none is smart now). 3kdps equipment in expansion?

2. Existing inventories of crafting materials will become worthless as new crafting materials are introduced. The price of EE, IT, FB and Tomes have already slowly declined 20%. I expect these to drop to near valueless.

3. Existing gems are going to decrease in price significantly as soon as news comes out of runes or new gems.

4. For some odd reasons plans have gone up in price significantly since the announcement - like 100%. This makes absolutely no sense. Plans are already the least effective method of equipping your character short of Archons. What could they possibly introduce to make existing plans more desirable?

5. For some other odd reason, the price of gold, relative to the $$ has gone up?? Again, how does this make sense? Isn't RoE going to introduce even more potential for gold, more inflation, thus making your existing gold valueless?

In short, having anything other than $$s in your account makes no sense, because $$s can always buy something.

Gold price is going up because people are hoarding it for later. RoE is likely going to introduce more gold sinks, not more opportunities for bots.

So why are plans going up in price? I can understand deflation, but a completely useless part of the game, aside from completing your pokemon collection, makes zero sense. Why would people pay 100's of millions of gold, the now more precious commodity, for useless items?
You forgot, "the sky is falling" as well.....
interesting how this game has become an economy simulator ...
The problem that we still have too much gold. And people can drop $$$ on items and bots can still bot. So its will just slow down for 1 or 2 weeks and then everything back to normal.

Now normal in this game is really bad econ.
Besides you beeing emotional, why do you even care?

Every patch gives you the opportunity to invest and make gold.

On the other hand, this is a game and most announced changes so far seem to be very interseting.

If you pay real money for virtual items, you will always end up using it to come along for a certain period of time.

If you play legit, you can spend time, money or both on the game. If you use a bot, you're cheating and will burn in hell :)
1. So what? The people with the best gear now are in a better place to advance and find the best gear in RoS.
2. Speculation. Doesn't make sense to add more than the reagents currently in place and announced (whites and blues). It would make more sense to have more applications for the same materials.
3. Probably.
4. It's called speculation. People speculate that Loot 2.0 will mean plans and crafting will be overhauled as well.
5. That is a mystery. Gold value has moved up since the gold floor dropped out.
