Trust me, I haven't forgot. Crafters whine about wanting to make something new and artifact like. How about just let the Devs work on something so we can kill each other in new and exciting ways with what we already have.

Like what?

New special moves for weapons that actually apply to the weapon, say, a smith's hammer has a special called "Dead-Leg" which targets their enemies thigh and hinders them to walking speed for 8-10 seconds?

And another reason for the high crafter prices are the high prices the warriors charge for the items they collect along with the gold they farm.

I am not complaining about it however because I could make an uber warrior and go fight the monsters if that were my play style. My motto is live and let live. hehe

I strive to keep my vendor prices low enough for everyone but cover the time I spend gathering the materials and making the items to place on the vendors. I imagine everyone else does that too.
Safe Travels and Happy Endings! :)

The very risk warriors take justifies the cost. Sitting back filling a BoD, getting a reward is no risk, its Highway Robbery!!

Maddux if only you were on Drachenfals your complaints have been noted, and if I saw you I would give you a dozen POFs just to make you stop, and I trust you would probably give me some thing of equal value, other than the sharp end of your sword. :)

I was under the impression that you two have a presence on every shard. or is it just in the stories that old PVPers tale around the fire at night. :)

I do have an extensive presence on many shards, but the Maddux who needs the PoFs is trapped on shard with Crafter Mafioso types who inflate the cost of everything to seperate me from my gold coin.

Alright, Maddux, I have imported some pof's from a third world shard where they haven't advanced their civilization far enough to utilize them, so the price was more reasonable. Just for you, a'maelamin! :) I hope it helps.

No risk not true. less risk yes but a lot more time. There is a lot more time invested in the crafting then in the killing.

tell you what Maddux you get the bods for me and all the materials to complete them and I'll let you turn them in for the reward.

Getting BoDs are Free, and digging around on the ground for ore is no risk whatsoever. All of this can be done from the safety of a guard zone in Trammel. Just being me is full of risks. :)

Isnt that insane?!? i recall only just a few months ago i could pick up a jar for 75k.
Why did the Value decide to triple and why i wonder?



Cause people hate doing BoDS, its going to get worse when people that supply POF are forced to do it by hand rather then the helper prog they use now.

You are absolutely right, but what we do get is hours and hours and hours of really tedious repetition just click click clicking on the same thing just to get a Gargolye's pickaxe, so you can imagine how long it must take to make something as valuable as POFs. I have missed meals in my quest to do a large bod, just to keep a fighter happy. I think you should pay more not less for all our troubles. :)

Those of us who do spawns, do the same thing. Again, those who craft take no risk and those who do spawns take all the risk. Of crafters we may say in general they are fickle, hypocritical, and greedy of gain

I have learned alot about crafters lately, as they are impossible to slay in Luna and they are unwavering in their prices.

We need to incorporate haggling with their vendors.

We need to be able to kill a vender. Venders are too sympathetic to Crafter Mafioso types any way.

It is not impossible to kill a crafter in Luna you just drop a trapped box in the right place and when they open it "oOOooOOo", but you do have to be a crafter to make the box or buy one from them. hehe
