    From the Town Hall notes over in UHall I noticed this little nugget:
    Anyone have any idea which bug they are talking about?

    No idea. I guess one of the unusable gold bugs?

    Aw gee and here I was hoping that maybe it was a bug that was making gains so freaking slow. (and I'm only at 96.2) Well rats....

    I listened to the townhall... the bug they are fixxing is the one where the NPC says "here take this amount of gold" yet gives you 0 gold.

    now if they would only fix the gain rate...

    Honestly, I think the gain rate and the skill timer and tied very closely together. Almost to the point that fixing the timer would fix the gain rate.

    Eliminating (fixing) the timer would fix the gain rate.

    But... but then wouldn't that unbalance the skill?

    You don't want to have to face hoards of GM Beggars out there at the Yew moongates do you? And what about speedhacking? Why we would be up to our death robes in no time at all if they started speedhacking begging skills.

    Pretty scary stuff if you think about it.

    And they thought greater dragons were overpowered.. :eek:

    Wonder if we'll get more "acquired by begging" items from gargoyles..

    I'm hoping for different "acquired by begging" items.

    It would be really nice if they could actually learn from the past and not just add new junk. Like bod rewards, stuff gets old after 5-6 years. I suggest they drop some of the old stuff (would make rares collectors ecstatic) before adding the new.

    I seriously think bods would have remained interesting and viable far longer had they done that.

    Ya, that's my hope too, I didn't make it very clear. Different stuffs!

    I think it would be in our best interest if the old items were discontinued at the time of new items being introduced.

    Publish 56's list is out now.. looks like the begging bug to be fixed is when NPCs verbally offer you gold but don't actually give you the gp. Nice!

    They had better wait to get rid of the Sake until I get mine!

    Maybe they could leave in the items that are harder to get and say, replace the bread with cinnamon buns or the shirts could come in colors. Something along those lines anyway.
