  1. Gold for advertising

    Actually mixers buy pretty much from shop, binding stones etc. Lowering rosto prices for members would cause their price to drop ingame too. It might not go back to where it was few years ago, but 20-30k drop in price might be possible.
  2. First 2 million gold coins for auction

    Nope, 10M per month in 2M bulks. That means 5 times a month.
  3. Gold for advertising

    I found the original thread and actually most of the players that had voted there said they'd buy the gold membership. Most doesn't equal to all Anyway original idea included benefits to non fighters too, so it wouldn't be just fighters that buy the membership. I believe anyone can afford 5 or 10 $ price per month. No one has ever said paying the monthly fee in WoW is a problem, but when it comes to some free game where you'd volutarily pay and get some benefits, then it's like buying a new car.
  4. Gold for advertising

    I'd love to see the monthly voluntary fee added and by paying that you'd get rostos for cheaper and maybe some extra bonuses too. Let's say 5 or even 10 $ per month and after that you'd get rostos for 1 or 2 $. Imo that would make rostomarket more healthy and I believe most of the active players would pay the fee every month -> regular income. There was this gold membership suggestion by radu a few years ago, I wonder why it never happened? I don't even remember what was included in it, but with those bonuses and cheaper rostos I believe it would be good change for keeping players active.
  5. Gold for advertising

    I don't really understand what you mean by this. But surely the biggest reason for people taking part to auction is the will to support the game, otherwise it's much easier, faster and most probable cheaper to buy from black market.
  6. Gold for advertising

    To assist the game? If they really wanted to have the best gc/$ ratio it would be really easy to buy 2M from black market.
  7. Gold for advertising

    Sure there's more than 10M gold moving at month unofficial ways. I bet it's something between 10-20M per month. Edit: Even on unofficial forums there's usually more supply than demand. And there surely is people who buy straight from few sellers without announcing it anywhere.
  8. Gold for advertising

    Nope, rich players buy gold anyway so I don't believe the price of those good will rise any higher because of this. Especially hydro bars since NPC price controls it, they would be over 15k already otherwise, I think.
  9. blue dragon sword

    +10 mag damage would be justifiable imo. Iirc BDS costs 110k and rad rapier about 160k? Rad rapier gives +15 rad damage and BDS only +5 magic damage, so according to those numbers, BDS is overpriced or underpowered. I think it would be better to raise the mag damage to 10, since dropping the price is bit harder.
  10. To be honest lack of newbie creates WAY bigger issues than NMTs. Effectively brings on the death of the game. Indeed it is, but it seems this problem isn't going to get solved in near future anyway. Because this wasn't all about NMT's, how many times do I have to say it? I got the quest idea first, then started thinking what you should actually do to get the perk. At that point I got the NMT idea. + There's been loads of suggestions about fixing more pressing matters so I don't see point in suggesting them again. You were the one that brought up the GC issue with the NMTs in this thread which made ppl react to that more then your suggestion, I already said I thought about the suggestion but my first reaction was to address the GC post and not the suggestion. Getting NMTs out of the game by using them in a quest should give more then what you suggested since they are kinda expencive and there for not many would be able to do the "quest" not want to do it either - at least that's what I think.. And Yeah I still can't use my Enter button here on this forums so can't make new rows Yeah I intentionally brought the NMT thing up, since it was part of my suggestion of course. It's only that it's not all about it, even if I named the thread to "penis" and just mentioned NMTs here, it would be same kind of ranting anyway Secondly people surely would be willing to do the quest, just think how expensive all breaking quests are. Newbs aren't really able to do those quests either because the costs is so high, I woudn't see that kind of quest being too expensive.

  12. Atm there's 7 NMTs even on bots (I think they have been there for few weeks already) and I've seen at least 2 people selling them on market too. You always see a flurry of nmt sales when topics like this get posted.... People speculating, it has happened like this in the past too. Well you can't really forbid the fact that most players that actually need an NMT already have one. Added that there's not many new players leveling, it will be some kind of problem in near future.

  14. To add to this point; Making item unbreakable in a game where everything breaks is also artificially modifing the market imo.
  15. I agree with this point, ingredient's prices have gone too high. Of course that should be solved first and it's much bigger problem than the one with NMT at this moment. Of course it was. But at this moment the price is going down because there isn't practically any demand for NMT's. And how does my suggestion only concern NMT's because it involves the quest idea too. Only couple people have commented the quest idea, I'm willing to take critic from that too. True. Too bad it seems that all the pressing concerns get solved only when the situation is catastrophic. If even then.
  16. When you were a nub

    I could write an essay about problems in PK, but since this thread isn't made for PK suggestions, I won't do that.
  17. When you were a nub

    What kept me ingame at the beginning might have actually been my sucky computer and internet connection that I wasn't really able to play anything else... Well I also liked the classles system and easygoing feeling in the game too. Also the interaction between people was amazing, it was never boring because there was always some drama going on Nowadays there isn't even much PK so it's more like watching some boring drama show, where everything is fine and everyone are friends.
  18. It's not real "free market" if there's no products going out from the system. Especially with such limited player base as EL has. And yes, of course I do these kinds of suggestions when I see the price dropping. Actually I just started to play again like 2 weeks ago and the situation has been going worse since when I was last playing. Anyway NMT's price bumbed before the NMT removal stone was introduced. There was loads of newbs starting to train higher monsters and the demand exploded. Of course NMT removal raised the price a little too, but not as much as the "great newbie rush". About arti capes, I don't believe there's too many people using them anyway since they require 10 human. I also have told like millions of times I didn't do this suggestions only for NMTs. I like the quest idea too and if I ever got extra NMT and the quest existed, I would use it for that. I wouldn't sell the cape even they cost 2M gc. I just don't see any rational point in keeping the things like they are at this moment, because as I said, it's not real free market to have products that stay in forever. Would mixers be happy if radu made armors unbreakable? I don't think so. Edit: Just another point from the mixer's view: I don't actually understand why it's also mixers that want to keep NMTs in game without them going out, since it also distorts the armor market. Items break less, less demand etc. If every newb has NMT because they are cheap, it really makes it much harder to sell armors since they break less. Naturally. Then they whine how it's hard to cover even ingredients from the price they have to sell the armors and weapons. For them the optimal solution should be to remove NMT from game completely but instead they want to keep things as they are now. At least it seems that all suggestions about NMTs have been started by fighters, not mixers.
  19. That's the main problem, soon there won't be enough newbs buying the cloaks. Actually you can already see that happening. The main reason NMT price bumbed a while ago was because there was loads of people starting to train feroses and other monsters that actually demanded some armor and at least CoL. I've said many times that the price is actually pretty good atm. I think NMT cape should cost about 350-500k so you should at least do some work to get the perk. It's still not too hard to obtain with lvls you actually start getting real benefit from the perk. It's just that this price won't stay for long and I'd like to see it staying between those frames. Edit: Of course it's still not permanent solution, since some day most of the people in EL have done the quest and again there's no demand for NMT's. But imo the quest would be nice add to game and at same time it helps the NMT market a little.
  20. Do they involve the quest idea? Nope. As I said earlier, it wasn't only about making NMTs going away, also the idea of the quest is involved here but everyone seems to forget about it since they are too busy to rant about the NMT thingies
  21. NMT perk is... well a perk. It shouldn't be too easy or cheap to get, otherwise radu can just drop the break chance to 1/4 of normal and remove the whole perk.
  22. It's not "still the same price". The price went up because demand was high and is now going down again for a reason there's shitload of NMT's in game and much less market for them, completely different situation than it was 4 years ago. I don't understand how anyone can say it's good thing an item isn't going out of the game at all if you understand even basics of economy. The situation is pretty good at this moment, but really it's only going to get worse in future, that should be clear to everyone.
  23. I don't see why the price of NMT should go lower than ~350k. It offers you such a great advantage that you should actually do some work to obtain it. I would just like to see them staying on healthy market, where the items go out of the game too instead of staying there forever. + It seems most of you forget the quest idea and just keep talking about NMT things.
