I saw this post in another thread. ""Most, if not all, of the stat-based items you can buy directly for gold via a vendor are locked behind other content-based gating mechanisms, such as reputation. There is, of course, always the auction house. But the AH is limited by other game mechanics like drop rates, crafting progression, etc."" from crb j-tal. Correct me if I am wrong but won't somebody with disposable income be able to buy all the credd they want turn it into gold and buy the best items in the game?
