Which MMO has the best economy?

Post by TheHidden01 on Fri Apr 18, 2014 6:11 pm

I'm an incurable trader and merchant, maybe even more than I'm a crafter, so I'm forever droning on about the good ol' days in long-gone sandboxes where players, not raid bosses, delivered all the objects used in the world. Making stuff is great, and lots of MMOs, even themeparks, have that, but I also I like setting up shops, trading on auction halls, finding great deals, and knowing just went to buy low to sell high, which isn't always the type of creative PvP gameplay that modern MMORPGs enable, let alone embrace.

But you can't trade in long-gone sandboxes, either, so today I want tap the collective wisdom of the Massively readers: Which MMO has the most vibrant crafting and trading economy, right now, in a legally playable and living MMO? Specifically, where's the best MMO to truly be a player merchant?

Never been good at being a merchant but i'd say WoW as ive had most experience with it. It's really open where alot of things can be traded in for lots of moneys.

But then people will overprice shit as well due to high interest but then again what game doesn't have such.

Edit: Totally forgot about eve, have to agree on that, the whole game is extremely driven by player in it self

out of games that are still going EVE prob produces more but Mortal Online crafting has quality to it so a lets say a sword made by someone will be better than by someone else etc

but out of games of all time SWG hands down had the best, had more people producing it than in eve and had the different quality that mortal online has in SWG there was classes exclusivity made just for crafting (before the revamps and shit)
