No. No fee on the town gates. When they put the portals in, that was one of the best ways they revived all the towns, putting a fee on it is just ridiculous. Teleport scrolls were mostly bought for when out in the field or for guild wars. Not just for going from town to town. This will again kill off people playing the game. People act like gold sinks are because EVERYONE has gems upon gems, but your average person and new people do not. Gold sink ideas should be left for extras for the people who have a bunch of gems and do not mind wasting them on some novel idea, not on things that are used for every day game play.
Totally agree with you on this Minty, gates brought the lower level towns back to life and I don't want to see newbies discouraged from exploring either
