    Don't do it, people on Siege don't like to sell things. Gold does you no good.

    Think I'm kidding? Go and try to buy 120 scrolls. Search vendors. Spam general chat. Even in this forum they say "people don't like to sell stuff". It isn't like its a new thing I'm saying here. I traded for gold and now I have 50 mil sitting around when the only thing you can buy is crap training gear and full spellbooks.

    I was coining their phrase

    "just because you don't see us doesn't mean we aren't there"

    Oh I know..I was sitting at 7xGM and tried to buy scrolls for months..I just gave up. Not interested in working spawns I just made a scribe nox Mage..not exactly ideal for working spawns..

    We sell 120's as we get them at The Epicenter. Its the first house West of Yew gate. Sadly, there aren't many 10's and 15's on vendors because most people bind them. I can see how that might make it hard for newer players. I'll see what we can do about putting some of those out for newer players.

    I'm pretty sure that your little GC tantrum the other day was the reason nobody would sell you anything. Stop acting like a jerk and you'll find people to be quite helpful on Siege.

    Sorry bro - it was before that. Also I'm still buying on other characters that no one knows. People on siege are less than helpful, aside from the NEW2 guild.

    I remember seeing people spam on the forums that they want more players. I wonder why?

    People on Siege are very helpful. perhaps yer attitude and expectations are the issue.

    I was able to buy scrolls fairly easily for my characters... including one within the last few weeks. Generally I just ask in chat and folk direct me to vendors that have them, or people that might have them. It helps to make friends.

    several people have said it, its basically like high school if your in the in crowd you can buy stuff, if your not liked or in their guild you have hard time.

    deal is done thanks for posting a bunch of irrelevant stuff here because you cant buy things on siege since your used to the atl vendor flood, gaming on siege is different you should know this and been prepared for it...cant buy it farm it! :D enjoy your short visit on siege...since you cant "buy" your scrolls im sure it will be a short lived experience

    i spammed general chat for 2 weeks just for scrolls... found a guy eventually to help with 110s, worked skills up to 110 and only found a couple of the 20s after a long period of time. the sad part is, ive met several people that HAVE the scrolls, they just hold them as ransom for me to join their guild for a month first or some junk.

    my char is still more than capable, but i know exactly what he means. it was frusterating as hell knowing tons of people had what i was after, yet no one was willing to sell them. so i had to run around as a 7x gm forever getting beat down by 120 skill dexers and such... and as soon as i cast a magic arrow they would run away (cause thats the thing to do on siege).. but still lol.

    there is deifnitely some strict bias on siege if you are a "stranger". I don't get that, considering a bunch of board warriors blow up stratics for new people to come to siege, then shun them at every corner.

    hi if your interested I can post about running a baracoon champ spawn this week, for people who want to try and get scrolls. It is a lottery if your scroll drops and more a lottery if we get rolled, but if people are interested it might go good. I have posted and did this siege player event 3 different days now over the last 2 weeks and 2 days went good the 3rd well there was no interest except a couple of people, 1 of which wanted to go red so a count he got :)

    Thank you
    Goldie

    Well, now that is an interesting recruiting tactic! I would be interested to know which guild pulled that one! That is awful.

    Our 20 powerscrolls go very quickly from our house just next to the Zento moongate, usually within a couple hours and no more than a day. Who are the tools that are recruiting people with scrolls? I would more so give people scrolls if they join SL, COM, or TB!

    Ya know it's funny... I started on siege as a stranger.... I'd been reading stratics for YEARS but hardly ever posted... All I had to do was be myself, chat with folks in gen-chat, and I found I got along fairly well. Though I came to siege looking to forge my own way without help from folks... I dunno... I'm just babbling now, but things dont always come easy here, and whining never seems to work on siege....

    I would also like to know who this guild is that wanted you to join in order to get scrolls. If it werent for the fact that I would get raided and stomped, i would farm Despise all day and night, by myself, which i've done before :) and then hand out scrolls.
