5000 gold for flying mounts.

Good god.  I hope the rate of gold earning really does go up drastically because I don't think I've like ever been over 1k gold (for long, anyway). :P

According to that thread, that's only for epic flying mounts.

Regular flying mounts will be 1,000 gold.  That seems bad, but it mentions how by that level, 5000 is about equal to what 1000 was at 60.  

Also, I'm pretty sure some epic mounts are found in raid dungeons too.  Though if the drop rate is anything like the ZG tiger, the point is kinda null.

I think though once you factor in reputation, 5000 won't be that bad.  I'm guessing the reduction is based off a percentage.  If so, being revered could bring the cost down 1000 gold or so.

As far as gold prices are concerned, it seems like blizzard is doing a decent job keeping the farmers banned.  Looking at prices now, prices are almost $8-9 dollars higher than they were many months ago (based off 100g prices).  I do see bots and farmers around the world, but no longer can I type /who dire maul and see 5-10 unguilded level 60 hunters in there.
