The Daily Grind: What do you think about experience scrolls?

With the holidays coming up, we'll have lots of options for purchasing goodies with all the holiday money that will soon be coming in from relatives. One of the options that's recently opened up in the EA Store for Warhammer Online is an item that will, for $10, allow you to skip a level in the game. Sure, it's an item that's already available for free as a reward for playing, but to some, the idea of putting a price tag on it and selling it changes the entire concept.

In Greg's recent post about the EA Store, some players pointed out that purchasing bonus experience potions, scrolls, and the like is essentially the same as buying a level scroll. After all, the additional experience can get you an additional level (or more) -- only spread out over time. So, in light of that, we ask you: Do you think purchasing an immediate-level item like the Warhammer Online scroll is the same as getting a bonus experience buff? Does the fact that you still must play to "earn" the level via bonus experience influence your opinion? Is the price difference between a cheap potion and an expensive scroll your main sticking point? Are these experience scrolls over the line?

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
