|Title||Any game where monsters occasionally drop loot|
|Description||Any game where monsters occasionally drop loot and/or gold when defeated has an inherent inflation mechanism: the amount of total gold in the world is constantly increasing simply through players playing the game. Hence, the value of buy poe exalted orbs diminishes - unless there are "money sinks" built in the game world economy that naturally remove some of the influx of gold from monster loot (equipment occasionally requiring costly repairs by an NPC is a popular example of such a sink - though perhaps not the best game design). Once gold loses its value, players often turn to other currency that they use for P2P trading (like the classic Stone of Jordan in Diablo II). GGG solved most of these problems by canceling gold all together. POE has no currency that is used only for trading - every single item in the exalted orbs game has some intrinsic functionality and value. Thus, there are many items that are considered "currency items" in POE - each does something different when consumed (providing a natural money sink mechanism):See all of the poe game news by playerhot now.. well done!|
