  1. Vial mold and EFE-prices

    Prices went up by conscious effort by radu. Quests were added to Darithia requiring EFEs and other rare items in attempt to drive business to shop but Eternal Lands just became a banana republic with hyperinflation. There are players using 50-100 rare esses in a sitting to attempt to get rare items and that also affected prices. And you are correct on most mixing becoming unprofitable. Market costs of ingredients cost more than cost NPC sells for because without those items being affordable many of feeder characters stop playing. Bread and Circuses is current scheme of game rather than what it was before.

    Make sure guildmaster of K&M knows she is using slave labor which is prohibited by guild. Alduron should go to some guild which has lower standard of ethics.
  3. HeavyBeard the item breaker

    My dragon blade broke on first monster I used it on, I am stuck on steel (2 of 5 left) and basically have given up.
  4. I installed EL on a machine I never have installed it on before (Windows 7) using a fresh download and it crashes opening each time. Any clues on issues? Only thing I noticed was it being not .2 but that should not cause it to crash.

    Thank you for updating wiki for map. I do most updates but timings are not a thing I have done. Do miss the map teleportals however.
  6. Make Alchemy Great Again! ;-)

    What would happen is before the change those with millions of gold coins in storage and ability to generate more gold coins quickly would buy everything that would about to skyrocket in price. It happened before animal parts where before change some heard it was coming and emptied bots. It happened with other items as well. Since the changes were not officially announced ahead of time obviously there are leaks and it favors those connected with inside info.

    Your "appreciation" means nothing to me. I just pointed out the economic parallels.
  8. Make Alchemy Great Again! ;-)

    Generally in a Communist model economy prices of certain key things are fixed (i.e. steel, titanium and bronze armor & great swords) to make economy currency (rostos in this case) run even though it results in hoarding, rapid inflation, shortages and corruption. I think the model is working very well.
  9. Invasion with a timer

    So lower level players are supposed to walk thru uncapped to kill theirs? Sounds like suicide.
  10. I suggested that when tools break one or more EEE get lost instead when mixing) Lose 1: Common tools Hammer Carving Knife Mortar & Pestle Ring Mold Scissors Gemstone hammer & chisel Medallion Mold Lose 2: Arrow/bolt head mold Lose 5: Vial Mold Alembic
  11. Newbies & Magic & Haidir

    I'd like to see a light spell, a low level spell useful for say starting to harvest, which would be useful not just for combat like shield is and is what I see a lot of players casting even though just sitting at storage or in fast regeneration. Since game has full day cycle this makes sense at night since there are no torches in game and this is supposed to be role playing. Some mines are brighter than outside!

    Personally I believe this will just add to inflation and since one of the big items bought from NPC, air essences, it seems a very slanted proposal.
  13. Thank you for "What's my current task"

    Engineering and Tailoring are not listed as possible rewards. I do not think they were skills when quest implemented. Since there are a bunch of new players and some may want to start on Engineering and Tailoring this would be a good way for them to get a boost since they are competing with players with a lot more experience. To an experienced player like me it does not make that much of a difference.
  14. Please check "Lesser Tears" Perk

    I noticed everything got weird when I got Child of Stars perk. I used to have The artificer cape and was regular mixer of magic esses. I used to mix when astro was high and I recorded how many EMEs mixed per ME. After I got Child of Stars perk it went down dramatically to point it was not worth wearing cape and I transferred nexus. Basically I find a lot of minor non-combat perks are useless. It seems combat perks are tested a lot and are important to be fixed and more easily tested. Other ones are contributed to luck but when you break 3 hammers making 30 leather boots you would really like to know if something is wrong or just bad luck. Thanks for checking.
  15. Please check "Lesser Tears" Perk

    It must have been very bad luck to break 4 mortars in 453 potions but I have seen no improvement since Lesser Tears perk added and recommend players not take perk.
