Increasing the gold rate.
I would like to humbly request an increase to the gold rate.

I have a feeling the answer will be a no, but I still want to take a shot. Here's my reasons why:

1) I know that we should be focusing on roleplaying, and of course we do, but sometimes we need some abilities, gear, weapons, which add to the fun of roleplaying.

2) If your roleplaying buddies are offline, or people are in a roleplay you're not interested in, sometimes people find temporary interest in leveling. Although that's quite hard to do when you lack the money to be able to do it.

3) It's not like it's going to cause havoc. For all I know, there could be some people on the server who really want to get to level 50, instead of roleplaying just yet, so they can get their preferred gear etc. So increasing the gold rate could speed up that process.

I know that we SHOULD be focusing on roleplaying and whatnot but having that extra bit of cash for some treats would be really handy, and appreciated by all the players I believe. I know that grinding is a terrible, and boring process but hopefully with the money rate increased, it'll be faster.

And I'm not asking for 50 gold from a level 2 human. Maybe just 7 or 10 silver from a level 2 kobold, something along those numbers.

I honestly can't see any consequences of this happening, and I've been thinking for a couple of days now. If there are any, please, throw them right at me. 'Cause I got nothin'.

It would be a nice feeling to actually have gear that isn't level 7 when you are 23, have enough money to buy the abilities that we need to fight the monsters of the world, and well yeah, not be piss poor after doing the above two.

Uhh, yeah, I agree.
I third that, we always end up short on gold and I find that a lot of times I'm actually using my money for roleplay purposes (trading items ICly with merchants and such.) It would be rather nice to have a bit more money laying around to do that with.

I fourth that. I hate using level ten equipment and im level thirty, and my abilities are farther behind then they would be on retail.

(( Unless a level 80 wants to support me? xD ))
I can see increasing the item drop rate for a while. Increasing the drop rate doesn't require elaborate vendors that'll get wiped by the ever-changing wotlk database, and can help support/satiate folks while giving us some decent RP doodads.

In the meantime, if there are any tailors or blacksmiths that need mats, please send an ingame mail to Oleander with what you need. Nothing longwinded, but like "1 stack of silk" or something.

Just make sure you put that stuff on the AH so we can all stop looking ugly in the meantime.

I fifth that, I only made my first character here yesterday, he's level 16, he has level 5 armor and no money whatsoever after not being able to buy any skills past level 12.
I thought it might be that I was simply bad at making money. My spellbook is often lacking spells several levels below me as I pay for a couple, and then I'm out of cash. Between tailoring, enchanting and spell upgrades, I'm pretty broke.

Don't even mention my equipment.

A little balance might be appropriate to try and make it so that our levels and equipment align themselves a little better.

Rest assured that once the database gets to a point where we can afford to hit a 'freeze' regarding updates (from the NCDB team), I'll once again cut the costs of spell/ability training.
In the meantime, I suppose an item rate increase would indeed be more effective, both for resale value to vendors as well as the higher chance of getting RP gear.

I'll see if I can remember to change the rates when I get home from work tonight.

Try to never just say, "My character isn't interested in that adventure." A lot of people mistake this for good roleplaying, because you are asserting your character's personality. Wrong. Good roleplaying should never bring the game to a screeching halt. One of your jobs as a player is to come up with a reason why your character would be interested in a plot. After all, your personality is entirely in your hands, not the DM's. Come up with a reason why the adventure (or the reward) might appeal to you, no matter how esoteric or roundabout the reasoning. -(Source)

That would be greatly appreciated. :D

Well, finally.

Can't wait to see it happen.

To clarify, the gold rate on the old server WAS slightly increased. With the update, it has gone back to the standard rate for the official servers. Until the updates stop, increasing the rates right now this very instant would get them reset fairly quickly. So keep yer pants on.
