1 Simple move to correct a lot of issues in General Live Discussion Posted January 6 22 hours ago, Slycutter said: I see three issues we clear out fairly quickly if the powers that be want to. 1. Crafting it broken because of ether cannot be traded or sold required for all crafts but insane amounts no one can farm for a long time creating less gear crafts keeping the price of gear inflated. 2. Elycum no way to effectively farm makes upgrading gear abusively expensive when adena and gemstones needed to upgrade already make it expensive not even counting the bloody and dark stones. 3. No one has a use for much of ether they do possess especially on alts with low luck. Part 1. = Remove all ether from all recipes keep them the same otherwise, material now have a value, they can be farm sold and gear can be crafted again. Lower level people can farm mats to make some adena or save up to craft gear for a 60% chance as always was. Part 2. = what do with all this ether that is bound? Simple 100 ether = 1 full elycum. You say but that will crash the elycum market. Yes maybe in the short term, long term balance so people can farm some elycum or sell it for adena to help get gear they do need. Part 3. = gear is more plentiful gear has value even unenchanted or unbloody/dark because people can now farm a way to upgrade it. Economy starts to rebalance at least on normal weapons and amours, you still have the insane jewels, and dragon weapons that cannot be fixed but helps lift all toons within the economy if they work on it themselves. um.. release one secret (expected many likes under this post ) : you are able to craft armour spirit stones with ether and sell them off or put them into.... BUT chance is 60%. I've tested almost the same buy from ah or craft.. Perhaps lucky boosted char is required idk.
