    Just thought i would mention this article from the New York Times.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/17/ma...pagewanted=all

    I seriously hope none of you guys are involved in this kind of 'farming'. And i can't believe that it is allowed to happen. It borders on slavery.

    PS. Does anyone know who (edited out!), and her allias are? There is something real dodgey about them. Dressed the same in Dakwood armour, and with a the same Soul'weaver' sword.

    Yeah, strange, it's just stopped for me as well!

    Type in gold farming in the search box though.

    PM me to confirm, but if you're talking about who I think you are, there's three of them and they do painted caves, ice dungeon etc. They used to do fel, but they don't anymore. Such a shame that I can't manage lurg and co all at once and have to run out :)

    You and i are a part of the problem Birdy! We are so lazy we dont want to go and kill spawn for gold. So what do we do...we buy it.

    I have been a uo player for 8-9 years now most of the doing PvM. Now we (me & u birdy) are PvP and we no longer have an interest in PvM gold farming has become a chore. Its people like us that keep the system going. But to be fair we are helping feed the poor :gee:

    It may be classed as an illegal action, but i saw someone put quite a few bagballs down on the floor whilst they were in Fel Painted Caves, and then killed both of them.:lie:

    But even then with those darkwood armours on, they were difficult to kill! :gee:

    Apparently :owned:
