I was wondering how Gold runes would do in the game. For example.

Lesser Mark of Gold - +1 Gold every 10 seconds.
Mark of Gold - +2 Gold every 10 seconds.
Greater Mark of Gold - +3 Gold every 10 seconds.

Greater Quintessence of Gold - +3 Gold every 5 seconds.

And then theres the alternate way which adds the money from the start of the game.

Lesser Mark of Gold - +2 Gold
Mark of Gold - +3 Gold
Greater Mark of Gold - +4 Gold

Greater Quintessence of Gold - +15 Gold.

I think it would be a bad idea.

If the tier 3 runes gave 3 gold every 10 seconds, then in total, after filling in all 27 rune slots with them, you would have a total of 81 gold every 10 seconds. This in turn means you will have 486 gold per minute. So after 10 minutes you have gained 4860 gold, enough to buy a VERY NICE item every 10 minutes. Adding in the quintessence values, you would have an additional 108 gold per minute. So in the end, you would gain 594 gold every minute. Anyone who did not fill their rune book with these runes would be at a SERIOUS disadvantage.

The effect would have to be more like 3 gold every 120 seconds to be anything viable for balance. Thus at maximum, you would gain an additional 41 gold per two minutes.
