    why is the prices so high there?
    getting gold from monsters should be balanced to the cost of items. I think the price on siege to be a correct stable price.

    why is the price of things so high there?

    Because if it's anything like Atlantic, one (or few) guild(s) "owns" as they say, all the fel spawns. As a result, they're the only ones to reap the rewards, and can therefore set any outrageous price they desire because only by paying those prices will anyone else have a chance of owning these items.

    Frankly, it's BS. And all I can say is that HOT isn't gonna hold the Atl spawns in monopoly for long if I have anything to say about it. (if they even have them... lord knows it's been 7 months...)

    Because prodo-shards have had several duping exploits with character transfers.

    Load up a char with million gold checks, dupe it until you run out of char transfers, buy more, repeat. At least, that's my understanding of how it was done before my break. I think they fixed it a few times, and they found ways around it. Not sure of its current status.

    That and scripted gold-farmers adding a lot of gold into the economy.

    Plus also the fact that if it´s a high-populated shard, then all the PvMers add to the equation (sp?) as well...
