Wonder Why The Abyss is Less Visited: CRUSHED GLASS.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by RavenWinterHawk, Jan 19, 2010.

  1. Point of view.

    I made 250 crushed glass yesterday. With a cost of about 5k per crushed glass.

    Now Im not saying there is anything wrong with it because it sells quickly at 25-50k since its used for enhance potion.

    But Ive alway contested that the additional ways to get ingredients will ultimately empty the abyss.

    This is one example of the ridiculous ease of getting a significant imbuing ingredient.

    Balance is needed.

    There are a lot of empty dungeons in the game unfortunately. I think it's good that noncombat players have other ways to get the materials they need. Maybe the Abyss needs other things besides imbuing materials to appeal to players. And not lame artifacts that spawn on the ground either.... I really enjoy pvm, but even I'm annoyed when I kill that giant pixie that's been there all day and then players come out of the woodwork to kill the low end monsters when they respawn.

    So you had 1250+ glass swords counting the failure rate? That's a lot of swords man. I've been collecting them for about a month and have only made 30 crushed glass.

    Luckily I have my own miner so I don't have to buy the blue diamonds.

    I don't have a single character, PvP or PvM, with Enhanced Potions on it. Is the property really that much in demand to burn through tons of crushed glass?

    On second though, I suppose it's the archers with their balanced bows using potions? I quit using pots years ago because of disarming one hand. But still, I just don't see the demand for the property.

    The reason the abyss is empty is because all the loot was switched to gargoyle only basically, and gargoyle are a huge failure other then for crafters in my eyes. Sorry that is how I feel.

    I agree. I've picked up almost no loot from Ter Mur or the Abyss, unless it's worth unraveling. All armor should spawn everywhere at this point. Update the loot tables to allow, normal, SE, ML and SA stuff in all areas.

    Eh, you're selling for about the price of a blue diamond (~20k) anyway, not a real profit.
     
  15. That's probably why it sells 'so quickly' on his vendors :D

    Raven, you make a serious overestimation of the supply of blue diamonds. They are limited greatly by the speed in which they can be acquired. Now, you may play on a well populated shard with a ton of miners or minerbots, but even there the supply will not be limitless.

    Blue Diamonds on atl are 10k -30k depending on the vendor you visit. You have to add 10k to each of them at least because even if you mine them yourself you can be assured a bunch of us would be GLAD to pay you 10k for them. I think its the best way to make relics personally.
     
  18. Good points. I did buy lots of diamond ahead of the changes. Lots.

    But my point is still the ease of getting the resources and the lesser importance of the abyss.
