Recently one of my kids convinced me to start playing on Great Lakes more often because "It's much more populated" .. I dusted off my old Great Lakes Ludes and spent several weeks working him into a Necro/Archer, which is what he said he and his buds needed to round out their party. We did well and I came around to a point where I needed some furniture for my space.. Spent days spamming on Gen chat and wandering around Luna, Crossroads and all the other known vendor spots.. nuttin. No carpenters selling furniture and not even one response to my Gen chat hollers in six or seven days.. Now I know most people make their own stuff now but I only have this one guy on Great Lakes and it would be cool if I could buy stuff. Catskills population might look smaller at first glance but we still have a fully functioning economy.. even low end furniture is for sale. Why would a shard be considered "heavily" populated but have no vendors?
