Should I just cash out now and quit? With my current gears and other items I have, I can get $1000+ out of them easy. I know I won't last another 3 months of grinding same old act 1-3, uber bosses etc. If I cash out, I can walk away with cash but if I wait another 3 months, all my items and gears will be worthless. Even considering I come back 3 months after, I am pretty sure I can get better gears than my current one if I just drop $200. What do you think? I think it's better to walk away with cash rather than keeping items that I got sick of.
for normal people, i would definitely cash out, however, looking at your profile, you seem to have top end gear and top end gear typically don't lose value over time. Sometimes they even "gain" value due to inflation since everyone gets more gold eventually.
The reason is that top end gear are usually very close to perfect rolls...so even if you don't play for a while, gear can't really get "better" than perfect, so they tend to hold their value. Then again, this is assuming blizzard doesn't make any drastic changes to the system (i.e. nerf crit and make all crit gear worth less like what they did with atk speed).
If you are sure that you won't be back anytime soon, (i.e. maybe when the expansion comes out in a year or two) then I would cash out b/c you'll never know what will change.
If you decided to come back within a few months, (i.e. when they release the PvP patch). then there is a chance that nothing much will change before then and you'll "lose" b/c you are selling your gear at somewhat a discount and getting it back will probably cost more.
