The New York Times, of all places, has a very good article on third world gold farming out. A lot of key points stuck out to me in particular. They showed that my "Molten Whores" guild raid for hire idea had already been tried, but had failed for lack of customers. They talked about Player Killers having a genocidal attitude towards farmers, something I once almost participated in (You think a lot in the 8 second pyroblast windup when you're targeting someone who you don't know and doesn't know you're there), and most amusingly they point out that if you took all the gold in the virtual economy and converted it to real world currency at the standard rate Azeroth would have an economy similar in size to Albania.

I'm also beginning to miss MMOs. It's only been two weeks, it's pathetic.
