You have to make tons of worthless loot if you are going to operate on a IRL $$$ system...I'm not defending them...but I'm sure that has something to do with it. On another note...anyone see Wonder Boys with M Douglas and Toby Maguire? Douglas is a writer and and a pothead...can't make decisions in his writings and thus his current work has reached the thousands of pages mark...Just reminded me of Blizzard for some reason....they seem perpetually stuck in system changes and class tweaks...it started to get extremely annoying to me back in my WOW days. Just make a choice and live with it for a change. It will never be perfect. Especially when you try and have PvP and Non PvP operating in the same universe. IMO at least.
