    Haha obviously it just gets removed from the system, very unlikely they actually "store" it somewhere incase of glitches or exploits and it would probably use up a bit of storage space / computing power.

    I've been wondering for 7 years now exactly how much has been "cut" from all auctions on all servers since release. Same with things like repairs or even mailing costs. You also get a few rare quests or events that require gold donations too.

    I'm sure Blizzard keeps transaction logs of all the gold exiting the game in various ways so they can try balance it out with coin, vendor and material drops. At least I hope they do, but considering how badly they tend to handle the economy it does make you wonder.

    I think shmelty made this as a fun thread to see what people would come up with .

    You can track gold spent on mailing and repairs in your achievement stats page (pretty sure anyway).

    As far as where the gold was spent? Orgrimmar just got a huge facelift, and Stormwind as well. I see a direct relationship between the amount gained from AH cuts and the amount of renovations made to cities.

    Greatest Post ever. The fact you picked Draenei as a dirty girl not a Blood Elf is hysterical. Star Trek referrence? Thanks for the laugh.
