I've played MMOs before and never purchased items other than the additional content stuff, but if others want to then I say let them have at it. Same with DLC that generally gets frowned up. Why do I care about DLC I won't buy if others want it? Let 'em have it, doesn't affect me.
Why would a player say "these prices are getting out of hand!" as if they're forced to purchase the items? Just don't buy them, nobody is making you.
