    I too was rewarding myself with the lucrative sale of GemBone silvers. After the silver holocaust, I now somewhat feel your pain. However, be reminded that we are still free to play make-believe all we want. Don't let's waste our lives by cutting into the GemBone profits. Take care now! :P

After the initial enchanting changes you had the testicles to ask for 300 silvers per essence long before anyone else did and you got it, I quite frankly thought you were out of your fooking mind (I was charging 1 third of that as a capped wizard) but you managed to set the tone and it stuck.
    I was charging 300 per right out of the gate and had no idea that that was considered high to begin with, since I had no problems selling it ever. I was always curious why you kept lowballing yourself when I'd see you advertise on LNet, when people are willing to pay more.

    The 5 percenters are always going to be in the 5 percent because they're the most anal about efficiency and mechanics. From what little Estild has said I don't think the majority of players have the login time or motivation to even reach a fraction of the cap.
    This is debatable. I don't keep track of shit other than checking my bank balance now and then, and I'm too lazy to give a shit about most game mechanics. I just had a general routine that I worked out based on simple observations and what was easiest to juggle with work. I'd get to work, run Confluence until it dries up, then head to plane 5 until I clock out. It was kind of an accident that I discovered plane 5 loot was so good because that's where I had to go to farm favor after I burned all mine up in pre-nerf Confluence.

    If you're worried that people aren't going to have the silvers to buy your things then people will just bypass silvers altogether and use USD instead.
    Sounds like the opposite of what Simu is wanting to happen. Unless people are buying it from them of course.

    I'm indifferent to the cap because in the long run I don't think it's going to change very much I think it was only made to target Mr or Mrs 60%.
    I don't have a problem with the concept of a cap. I still think it's unnecessary and is going to result in lower DR participation, but my biggest problem with how it's currently set. 10m is way too low, and I really don't get why they're trying to shift this game to cater toward super casuals when they rely heavily on whales to keep the lights on. If you're throwing thousands or tends of thousands of dollars at a game regularly, you're not a casual. You can pull in 500k-1m a day just from doing bounties in the Confluence a couple hours a day without staying out grinding/farming it, assuming you're purifying and picking or having your plinites picked.

    According to Naijin, if you're playing for longer than 4 hours, you're not a casual, and if you're making 30m+ a month, you're farming.


    I also have an issue with the huge contradiction that they're bending over backwards to ignore/downplay, which is that people already make 48732094230942 silvers at DR. Last DR run just from pawnshop bullshit, I pulled in 9 digits with my characters, and I started late and barely knew what I was doing for the first couple days since it was my first run and didn't have everything running at full speed until about halfway through the event. Hoy pulled in almost 400m that same run with his characters. I expect to pull in much more this next run than I did on the previous one.

    We were promptly dismissed and made out to be liars (or just called a liar, in Naos's case) in Discord over it this morning by Estild/Naijin/Naos.

    Everything is balanced as long as you're handing Simu cash for it. Otherwise it's OP.

    I'm pretty curious to see how this affects DR participation though. Probably won't notice a big difference this run, but August or whenever the next one is will probably be more noticeable if people shuffling books for silvers and all that goes away.

    Well I think they're either being a little disingenuous or genuinely unaware because each win pack averaged out at 15k-20k in silvers just from at the pawnshop. Can you remember which channel they said that in?

    It was in mechanics. I think it's a mixture of both, but mostly them being disingenuous, because they've always been full of shit like that.

    You offer to sell your crystal-edged blade to Cendadric.
    Cendadric takes your crystal-edged blade, glances at it briefly, then hands you 135 silver coins.
    !>

    Ah well, my non-scripting casually try to pick up 8 crystal weapons in a disk on the way out couldnt keep up with the uber-leet bots of OTF anyhow.

    TLDR, they seemed to have dropped the last zero off what these used to pawn at.

    womp womp
    bid 1337
    Dett *BANGS* his gavel! "The bidding is now open for lot number 21: a grey-swirled coraesine relic! Who will start the bidding at 20 silvers?"
    >

    The auctioneer nods to you as you bid 1,337 silvers.
    >
    The auctioneer calls out, "Ardwen bids 175,000,000 silvers! New bids must be at least 192,500,000 silvers."

    le sigh.
