It feels like eliminating gold as a currency leads to so many different problems. But if Blizzard decides to take this path, I have no doubt they'll think of something amazing.
I don't understand how gold being worthless will hurt crafting. The mats have always been the most important part of it from what I've seen.

I don't hate it. I never used it. I'm completely indifferent to it. However, the effects of its removal will be nothing but a boon to me, so therefore, I am all for the changes.

If gold becomes worthless, there won't be any gold running around since it's not being traded as the main form of currency like it is right now. The only forms of getting gold after the gold AH dies will be vendoring items and gold drops, which isn't nearly enough to get 20 million gold to craft a Marquise Gem, unless I'm overlooking something...

The gold I have *on me at the moment*, 9mil. I have an achievement for having collected 100mil. I've not even come close to having the mats to craft one of those gems. Besides, you said, and I quote, "But I can see it working out if they eliminate gold sinks[...]". Those who take the time to farm mats for these gems will likely already have the gold in which to craft them. This isn't even to take into the consideration the proposed change you mentioned in your post, which would make gold overabundant and... even more useless. So yes, I guess you're overlooking something.

You'll still be able to trade gold for items, as far as I know, you'll just have to work out the trades on an outside source from the AH.

Hmm yea I guess I was overlooking how much gold you actually get per 'run'. Just realized you can actually get quite a bit of gold from gold drops alone. I was just pointing out that it would make professions not a big deal as it is currently, ruining it in that sense.

I dunno. Professions was never a deal for me. I'm far more interested in getting some cool drops.

This is a right step for Blizzard... cuz kids roll with moms debit card and buy Mempo of Twilight with 6% crit for 40 bucks and full legacy natalya( of you're a demon hunter) for the same amount and they have end gear...

Now we'll grind /trade more often, I totally support Blizzard !

A great and harsh step done by Blizzard, and that was necessary. I am anxious to start playing it again when the patch comes out :3 Finally a great game that will utilize crafting and farming, as well as trading items maximally. The only thing they need to implement now is a good anti-bot system

Then why didn't people trade gold in diablo 2? It was worthless, people are now going to resort to d2JSP or trading other valuable items which can be worth something.
