    The in inability to make secure high value trades is a problem for the economy, which is something brought up often as a major problem. Right now, a lot of gold sits around uncirculated and unspent simply because storing and transferring it between players is not an easy process.

    For example, let's say someone ends up selling a rare for a 400 million gold. As it stands there is no easy way to transfer that much gold between the buyer and seller, and other items with inherent value equal to that of the sale price are used in place of checks. By making this process easy and secure we get more money cycling into the hands of people who will spend it instead of hoard it. Now the player who just easily got 400 million on one character is free to spend that money on any character on the account, a few million here on some new armor, a few million there on some new weapons, pretty soon all that money is back circulating, and that's a good thing.

    If you feel there are areas of the game that need attention though, or specifically bugs you find troublesome (especially this as right now we are in the midst of a bug fixing publish) please feel free to email us or send a PM.
