Look what I woke up to, at the Black Lion Trading Company, today..
Twilight, the Legendary weapon, for sale! The listing was for 9500g. In legitimate gold (from gems), that’s the price of a cheap car. This shows exactly how messed up it is to pin in-game currency to a real world one.
edit: An hour or so later, it was relisted! Someone didn’t mind paying 5% listing fees twice for 9500g? YIKES!
