Today's Daily Grind was inspired by a Lifehacker article about paying for real-world conveniences, like vending machines, fast food, and even laundry services. It's a question just as applicable to MMORPGs today, when most are free-to-play or buy-to-play and even the subscription games are loaded with cash shops begging you to spend money to make (often intentionally) disagreeable gameplay more agreeable.

I've seen MMOs offer everything from cheap mounts and skill packs to experience boosters and buff potions, all in the service of making the game more convenient for you at the cost of a few bucks here and there. Some such conveniences can seem exploitative; others don't. But today we're asking you: What convenience items in MMOs are you, personally, willing to pay for?

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!
