    That argument makes no sense. Its not like they are getting new gold here or something. Someone still has to play siege, farm and get that gold. Its not altering anything, its just moving money around.

    It doesnt effect the economy in the slightest.

    Actually, in a way it did. A lot of the newcomers had a sudden burst of gold far higher than many of us had ever seen due to the massive amounts they traded, and at the same time had no idea of the worth of many items here. Having so much gold a few people started spending INSANE amounts for certain items causing prices to suddenly shoot up on them. Note that after a few people did large gold trades from ATL that many of the power scroll prices nearly doubled, and a few commodities are already going for 2-3 times what they were going for 6 months ago. It's minor at this point still but a few people being "hyper-rich" tends to inflate the prices of anything they would normally buy for everyone. Who's going to sell a 120 magery for 1.5 mil now that it's known there's a few people on the shard who would gladly pay 5-6 mil?

    I suppose that is true, but it really only makes a difference because of the population. People (cyber nickle for one) used to cross trade in massive amounts years ago as well, and the economy was fine.

    After a few months it will all even out. What keeps the economy solid is item loss, and a much diluted ability to gold farm nonstop.

    My favorite thing to hear is the "silence" after explaining to a noob that "No you cannot recall here, or for that matter gate out of a dungeon". Lots of people are totally brain dead on what to do next.:wall:

    Or the "No the gate isn't broken... There is NO Trammel here".

    Shoulda heard the silence in my computer room when I took my noob archer to work skills in X dungeon, got heavy on loot, walked out of said dungeon, looked around and said CRAP I have to run all the way back.

    ....and then I did it again without thinking...

    LOL

    When I came to Siege 5 years ago I x sharded gold @ 10-1

    When I started to leave I was only able to get 3-1

    The last 60 Million I X sharded off Siege was @ 7-1 so the Siege economy is getting better!

    I still have 7 million On Siege that I want to X shard to Atl @ 7/1!

    Also have insane GD on Siege for 85 Million on ATL or 105 Million any other shard!


    Might have more gold...if Carz sold my bows!!
