It's an interesting idea since low-level gear is sparse now, but it can and probably will be used as a test to gauge how well it works. They'll then be able to put it to use selling higher level items. Turbine are a company after all, and with their F2P model, they'd want to get as much money as possible from these micro-transactions. Why stop at low-level items when there's money to be had with high-level ones too? It can be a downward spiral.

By the way, you need to correct the "Rift forum" link to LoTRO forum. When I saw it I was like, "huh?!?" hehe. Smile
