An AH does not stop people selling items outside the game.
Player 1 does an offline deal with Player 2 to sell item X on AH for N.
Player 2 pays real money offline to Player 1 and the items is listed and immediately purchased.
Player 1 makes real money, Player 2 gets their in-game item and Snail make nothing.
Here is a look at my bags, so do not for a moment think I would not like to convert these assets into real money. I just know it is not healthy for the game. I am an oldfag and have seen how game economies work since Everquest.
All that said, the way in which the game has been modified currently does need some method of adding additional items into the game that would otherwise be trade loot.
Add with considerable cost,
the option to buy Jianghu Internals from the Adventure Boatman. Now the game has matured, there is no real reason to protect the early starters, who by now should have Snow Sword, C7 and at least Chaotic or Five.
