  1. Make Alchemy Great Again! ;-)

    Saxum is correct, not that Radu is a communist, but price fixing is a communist style control, that always fails, and produces shortages, etc. However, the most significant difference is that the supply of essences from npc are endless. There are no shortages.... You can buy 1 or a billion billion of them.... or whatever number it may be that doesn't cause C programs to crash... which maybe something like 18,446,744,073,709,551,616..or something to this effect. I argued years ago to remove all items from npcs and let the free market prevail, along with shortages, savings, hording, market production shifts, but everyone just OMFG fr33 markets r scary and we love price fixing..until price fixing created the omfg no one buys my essess/pots or whatever.. A good example of this was removing c2 rings from npcs, prices seem to have stabilized and ebul crafters r getting rich buying ess from npc to make c2 rings.. which Barnes seems to use a lot.. I wouldnt remove serp stones from the bars for example, I would remove items that use wolf bars from npcs and remove wolf bars from npc and let the prices float, dont worry, they will stabilize, might make every thing a cost a little more, but price is relative to supply and demand. So be it. Might even see steel long production and iron sword for tin/bronze again. Remove hydro bars from npc too, good gold sink as is, but prices will go up on hydro, and guilds will find ways to get it, it would at least be more interesting then buying from npc. Likely less hydro coming in, but I bet removal stones drop in price, as people cant use 1-20 of them every recon day without the hydro to back it up. But I bet if a nexus removal cost 250k, you wouldnt mind risking a rosto for hydro then... The same with potions, summon stones, etc, Raising prices of essences at npc will just cause price increase of all items, and there will soon become less items that makes sense for mixing, and just buy from npc instead.... Please see bronze armor and rapier for examples... So in short, remove all items that can be made from players from npc sales. Let the free market work, supply and demand and price will sort itself out. When fire essences hits 100gc each, the alt armies (Bring back rule 5 too) will jump into gear and the flood the market quickly, driving down prices of efe and fe at the same time.. that is when I corner the death essence market :DDDD Wiz
  2. Portals of the dark Lord forum contest

    Ok, lets try this. 1) 2) 3)
  3. Banned

    PM me your IP adress Wiz
  4. Likely someone in the past had the same IP you have now, and did something abusive and got that IP banned. Will take a look to see if that address can be re-instated. Check back in an hour
  5. Rain in WTF dungeon map

    It is called WTF for a reason! Add Acid Snow!
  6. OMG again alts banned?

    I believe it was Radu that banned them, I do not know the reason. Suggest you send him a pm in game to this thread. Wiz
  7. All hydro route to be PK?

    I have been a moderator for over 10 years in this game. In all that time, I have tried to be fair, impartial, reasonable in every way dealing with the rules as they have been defined, and players, some of which make it very very difficult to be impartial. Let me make one thing perfectly clear. This is not about me. In fact, it is not about you either. This in fact, doesn't belong on a public forum. and should imho be a topic for game moderators, before being dragged into the communal channels. When rule 5 was abruptly removed, there were a lot of consequences that were not considered, Some of which you highlight above. However, there is a precedent set by Radu for alts to be "actively played". As I see it, and others, the use of alts to camp hydro route, or other maps do not fit the definition as "actively played" This has gone on for some time, and I am willing to bring reasonable arguments, and take reasonable measures to rectify what is believed by many, a serious flaw in game play that stems from the removal of rule #5. I am pressing the issue, because it has been ignored for far too long. I have thrown a lot of hours in the past 10 years as a patient moderator, a newbie helper, a rule enforce, an event planer, a contest maker, and invasion host, for the entertainment of all in game. Do you really think I don't care about Eternal Lands as a whole, and only care if I can get easy hydro? This is not about me. This is not about you. This is a topic of game rules and moderation of those rules.
  8. All hydro route to be PK?

    Radu You are avoiding the topic at hand. The topic is not about making hydro route easier, or harder, or adding some flowers to the caves.... It is not about pk, and it is not about map changes. It is not about bombs, or phoenix leveling, The topic is about using alts to camp 24/7 that are not actively played to benefit a main character. The topic should read "Should alts that are not actively played in game be allowed for camping purposes". I fail to see how using alts to safely spy on hydro route is any different then to use alts to safely camp Ivan spawns, Joker spawns, or used to pin mobs in a multi combat map for defense trainers. One is legal, the others are not. The underlying principles for each case are the same. Wiz
  9. Three alt questions

    So for example, The alt army of Stivy that just camps areas to spy on hydro harvesters is aginst the rules?
  10. The Fully Random Joker

    Why would you prefer this? The only reason that I can think of is that you know where those spots are. Truly random appearances of Joker levels the field for new and old players alike. Random spots makes joker hunting impossible, because he can hide behind every tree and rock on (nearly) every map. So all you must do, without any further hint of his location, is to run across the whole EL world, look behind every single bush, check every house or cave or secret place. Think about how many time that would take, that would take days or even weeks and it would be quite frustrating, when someone else finds joker before you, after you searched him for days and weeks. Or, you find him after searching for him for a week and all you get is a leather or a bread. Not really entertaining IMO. Piper Have you tried Joker hunting in OtherLife? The hints Joker gives certainly help narrow down the search. Worth checking out before you make your opinion certain.
  11. A suggestion by me & Aisy

    That is all fine and dandy! After the p2p Mermaid race that I can use to go fishing on horse back though.
  12. Repairing Dragon Armor

    With alt armies what does it matter the nexus cost?
