When the auction house is gone, of what use is the gold we pick up? I mean, is there going to be a place to spend it? Is it only good for Gem upgrading and gear creation? Will the gold we have when we get into the upgraded game still be good? Will it still cost 20,000,000 in gold to create a Marquis Gem etc? Considering how long it takes to get 20,000,000 in gold, Marquis Gems won't be coming around too often.
