2nd question - and this is probably a dumb question because I'm not big on the money-making side of things, but what happens to the in game gold when this goes into effect? I mean gold is obviously sold for money now so you can use it in the GAH to buy gear. Also, you can sell GAH purchased gear in the RMAH for $$$. But when there is no GAH, what will be the point of all the gold dropped in game? Sure, you need to repair gear, and you can buy from the vendors, but that doesn't usually equate to the fat stacks you can make running high MP for XP. Again, maybe I missed this, or don't see something, or it will just happen to exist when it doesn't really need to?
Either enchanting items will be pretty expensive, or they could add gambling like D2 had (pay gold for a specific item type to roll randomly).
