I play: Archon wizard, CM wizard and leveling WD. Let's see how it will look like:
1. When going CM from archon i change weapon, from my rare sword to chantodo's wand. Replacing gem will cost me 5m. Also i replace 2 - 5 gems in chest + pants to VIT gems (depending on MP level im planing to play) that will cost me another 10 - 25m.
and.....another 15-30m when changing back.
Not playing CM again. Blizzard tells me that i must play one spec all the time.
2. Let's say i find slightly better chest (few more stats, resistances etc) i would normaly replace it with my old one, but in this case i will have to pay 15m to replace gems. Not worth it. Will sell upgrade on AH.
So.. Not gearing any more. Blizzard tells me that i must sell upgrades on AH.
3. Playing WD sometimes, trying to level it. When playing WD i replace amethyst with ruby on my mempo and pass it to WD, cuz WD still needs +exp and my wizard is already paragon 100. So that will cost me 5m and another 5m when i decide that leveling my alt is enough.
Not gona play with WD anymore. Blizzard once again decided that i can't play with alts and must stick to my main untill my brain will explode.
SERIOUSLY, BLIZZARD. W T F? Can you ONCE leave your "we feel like it has to be like this", "we decided that we gona make it like this" and listen to the fans who are still on your sinking ship?
With prices like that you are trying to create goldsink and save your !@#$ed up economy (That you created ofc).
but, all you do is:
YOU HURT PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY DO NOT BOT, CHEAT OR EXPLOIT and PLAY THIS GAME FAIR. They cannot afford prices like that, so that means they cannot go for best gems in game or play with other specs and alts?
People who are here just to troll, don't bother. You will say - then do not buy those gems. And that is retarded. I can afford getting them, but i can't afford having them, and to still be able to have them i must stop playing other specs/alts. Between choices to drop specs/alts and get best gems or to play other specs and stick to old gems, many people will go for new gems and not playing alts. And why even make that decision? It is not fun, it kills game.
Prices must be symbolic, like 10-15k per gem. Try to save your ruined economy in some other ways.
Blizzard get your !@#$ together, you are loosing so many cool people day by day. You can't seem to handle this situation. Can't do right things.
