Make Cursed items untransferable?

    yes or no...I think it would help small shards that are attracting only farmers and the cursed items would be left on the shards to be sold on the shards.

    drives me nuts not to be able to find a scroll I need.

    It would cause more problems than it would solve. If I wanted to transfer a char from Atlanta to Baja so that I could start playing on that shard and I had all the scrolls I needed on Atlantic to make two chars on the new shard as well, I wouldn't be able to do it. I could either sell my scrolls on Atlantic, transfer the gold, and hope I could find the scrolls to buy on the new shard, or make all the chars on Atlantic and then transfer them to the new shard, or just transfer the first char and do spawns on the new shard until I get the scrolls I need. Plus some people make their money by xshard trading items and scrolls.

    Another thing would be if you couldn't transfer cursed items off a shard, then why would all these people that tranfer to farm them go to your shard? They normally transfer gold and buy things on your shard, create new chars, place houses, and add people doing things in Fel. Basically in the end the large shards would be real active as far as champ spawns goes, and the smaller shards would be pretty much dead because there wouldn't be enough people on the shard that would want to buy the scrolls that you did get.

    Yes the Xsharding is nothing more then an abused system right now. They should post out a date of ending it so those that want to move can and be done with it. At the same time they can see whats crossing and just poof fat BOD books and loads of bright green deeds. Noone has 100s of thousands of ingots and rare boards sitting about unless they had been gotten against the rules. Not to say that I've not made out like a bandit at some IDOC.

    And there should be a border patrol of what is crossing. There should be no confusing 20-30 PS to 2-3 packies full of them. And only a scripter would come up with the bulk deeds being a good ideal.

    A farmer could just as easily sell the 'cursed' items on that shard... then transfer over millions of gold... what's the difference? They're profiting either way.

    I think cross-sharding is good. If you are in need of an uber leet weapon/armor you can go to another more populated shard to get it. If you play a dead shard, it's your own fault. Nobody is stopping you from transferring or starting somewhere new.

    Given the amount of $$$ they probably make off of it, EA will never get rid of the transfer service.
