A conversation with Nimayne on twitter just made me think of quite an interesting question. We were talking about the whole WoW for Free concept, and we both sort of agreed that buying your high level gear would be so much less interesting than actually having to fight for it. (#followfriday @Nimayne btw!)
I said how I even went to grind for what I needed, and that I hardly ever went out to buy stuff in the AH. (I would be the worst goblin ever).
But it does open up an interesting train of thought..more later when I've had time to form these thoughts fully...and uhm, when I'm not at work.
