As we saw in the economy stream we have almost doubled the amount of gold in the game in just a year. What I will suggest is common on many other games with no obvious drawbacks but a bunch of benefits.

GE Taxation!

If any player buys/sell something on GE there is an amount of money that just dissappears from the game. The procentage would depend on the amount of gold going through GE and the amount of money in game. Basically what you need is just to know how much money is put in the game every day and how much money goes through GE.

Example: 3 bill gp comes into the game every day and 60 bill gp goes through GE. As we want the same amount going in as going out we take 3/60*100=5%. So the tax should be 5%. This should be adjusted maybe twice a year or something. It should be said I think we need to rely on JMODs to come up an actual estimate of the size of the tax.

This would bring back the forum selling community for those who merch/are careful with their money etc. But if you're in a hurry or don't care enough to spend time on buying things you go through GE.

What do others think of this (not at all new) idea?

A lot of players have wanted this to be introduced for a while, it's such a simple solution.

Some say that players will just trade with others instead, and to that I say, sure, why not. The grand exchange is a convince feature, and if players want to use it to save time, a tiny tax shouldn't be a problem. It'll only help the game.

Should this be the only money sink? Definitely no, there needs to be more money and item sinks in the game for the game to survive long.

no support , thats honestly stupid.

if you believe the more gp in the game devalues items , u seem to have forgot how items back before the g.e were traded.

ags would still be 70 million if the g,e wasn't around

the reason ags dropped in price isnt because of ge.. its because ppl have understood its better to lower defences of bosses rather than just smacking them with ags spec.. and not a lot of people pk so the demand has gone down.. therefore dwh is up and sgs is up due to being good for making boss trips etc longer too
