Several guild mates including myself are pro Rocks. We haven't bought into any of the negative propaganda which some people have been spreading about Rocks. We believe that using the Rocks will save us time and they do not steal away our chances at earning shiny pixel items. However there are some people out there who are anti Rocks. They hate them with a passion, give you dirty looks when you speak about them and will quickly begin attacking the giant spider on purpose to encourage us to not use the Rocks as all. Sometimes they even pretend they didn't hear you until you get tired and stop asking "ARE WE DOING THE ROCKS OR WHAT BISHOP!?," not to name any names of course. These people believe that the rocks are indeed "a person" and that this person has been controlling the apron market of UO for many years. You see the Rocks has been the main supplier for tangles in all of UO and has successfully created a monopoly in it's niche accessory market and therefore has set the current market price for all tangles in existence. How you may ask? Well it's quite simple. These anti Rock people say that using them will take away from chances of earning tangles. Just like another player might. So it is reasonable for them to assume that the Rocks have actually earned more tangles than just about anyone. Then the Rocks in turn sells the tangles in bulk to the big sellers of UO at discount prices which they then turn around and resale at a small profit. It is the Rocks though that is pulling all the strings. You see, all they have to do is just sit there while we kill the giant spider and only contributing for a few seconds each spawn, and then they effectively steal the tangle away from us. They work us like little minions and then reap the benefits all to themselves. It can be assumed that the pillars are hollow and just packed to the brim with tangles, which the rocks sells on it's monthly runs to the big UO sellers. Any player whom uses the rocks is a mere pawn on a giant chessboard which is being controlled by none other than... you guessed it; The Rocks! So I have taken the argument over here. I want to see if there is as much Rocks hate here as I have found elsewhere. Are those of us who are using the Rocks carelessly throwing our aprons away and being manipulated at the whim of these rocks? Or are the rocks in fact fact our friend, who give us that extra boost, who whisper sweet nothings in our ears and have been there to pick us back up after we fall off the horse? I choose to believe the latter but out of fear of being a tool in some sort of large rock conspiracy, I have decided to ask you, the Stratics Community for your wisdom on this subject. Thank you for your opinions on this matter.
