Yes you were.
Gee, I wonder why.
As will I.
Reason in short supply these days. A very rare commodity indeed.
When I use the word value, I am referring to economic value, not personal value. The point I was making many, many posts ago were all referring to economic value, not personal value. The topic was in-game gold. A person can own a picture of a long lost loved-one, but unless that person was famous in some way, it likely has no economical valuable at all. This is not the value I'm talking about, and that should be obvious I think but is going over everyone's head it seems.
I tire of these conversations though. It's not like anything I post matters anyhow, so I don't see the point.
That's how forums work when you have to debate things with many other people instead of mainly agreeing with one more.
And is also the reason almost no streamers visit or write in forums. Sad.

Losing your wealth?
Man, the only value items have are the benefits they give my character when equipped. And that doesn't go away, even if you don't play for 6 months and then come back. You'll still have the same items, they have the same stats, you can farm the exact same content with them (unless Blizz tweaks the difficulty with patches, of course).
All else is just going too far.
EDIT: good point on the durability. Dying is costing me thousands!!
Quote from shaggy
They have an AUCTION house which is modelled after REAL WORLD AUCTION HOUSES which typically have FEES (sometimes %ages on the sale, sometimes flat fees, sometimes both).
It is not an "economic control." It's a goddamned fee for using the service. If you don't want to use the service then feel free to use the chat channels which have no fees associated. You are paying for the convenience of listing your items and then moving on and not having to spend hours in chat trying to sell them. It's not some governmental scheme to dick you out of your money. Get a grip.
Quote from JKlimek^ flipping may happen in real life, but when it does, it happens with taxes!
The best example I can think of is predatory scalping sites. They will buy large quantity of tickets (paying sales tax) and then resell them to consumers for much higher prices (who also pay sales tax on them again). Beyond the fact that this happens in real life, there MUST be a gold sink in this game because otherwise gold is infinite and infinitely decreasing Real Value. Unless you can think of a better way to do this, don't talk about removing the AH tax, because you're just shooting yourself in the foot in the end
The main reason I don't want to see bind-on-equip is simple, I like being able to hand off items after I use them. It makes it easier to upgrade knowing your old stuff isnt completely usless now.
