Last night I realized that this would be a wow-metaphor to the opening of the Panama Canal. Trade between servers (and oceans) existed before, but this opens it up to large supertankers in a cost-efficient manner.
Lately I've been feeling a certain...malaise. When you're rich and you've already bought all the mounts, pets, patterns and primo BoE gear, the ah starts to get a little boring. But this...this has possibilities. Taking a ship laden with goods and/or gold to a far-off , undiscovered land to trade with the backward natives. Be sure to pack the shiney beads and citrus fruit.
I think it would be funny if Zam and I both found ourselves on the same server each with 1,050,000 burning a hole in our respective pockets for cheap goods. (We all agree that if anyone is gonna exploit this, Zam's the man, right? He's probably making an army of level 1 spies on every US Server as I type this.)
I'll make you a deal Zam. Either we can both do the heavy research and show up on the same server, or you can just tell me the name of the one with the second-most-screwed-up, bargain-basement economy and avoid me out-barking you in /2.
It just occurred to me that he might be sending out a whole fleet. Hmmmmm....
