What happened to Luna?

    I'm not much of a Luna buyer and I seldom go there but what I saw today really surprised me. Not that some plots only have a footing and nothing more, most of the vendors are empty or just sell ordinary stuff. I rarely saw any high level Artifacts or the variety of legendary scrolls they used to have. What happened?
    Were they all "in the possession of a multitude of highly illegal items"? Did so many players leave? Is there a plague or something? I'm confused :confused:

    I just started here and was wondering the same thing. I can't seem to find a few artifacts that would really be helpful in my near future.

    But I don't know the past of Drachen-Luna, so I can't add any insight.

    Although, my explorations of other places have yielded nothing either. I can't find active vendors anywhere.

    Every items that is/was on my vendors that could be use for turn in for spring cleaning tickets flew of in no time of all my vendors. I have no time to keep things restocked. And my vendors are outside south of Luna.

    I saw the same on all vendors around Luna after the start of spring cleaning . Every PS and artifacts where bought everywhere or taken off to get tickets for. I'm pretty sure when spring cleaning is over the vendors get restocked with items again.

    I agree with Frarc, when the spring cleaning is over, things should return to something like they used to be, it might just take a little time

    I'm sure my post count is going down?

    Well, Luna had somewhat shady places to shop. Let's say they just had a small breakdown those few days ago :thumbsup:
    But sadly, some of the plots are back in the hands of the same people, so there won't be much of a change in the future...

    That's the main reason I don't shop in Luna unless I know the owner/vendor personally :talktothehand:

    Totally agree with Medea. Dont think spring cleaning had much to do with the empty vendors. I think the current bannings going on has much more to do with the empty vendors then anything else. Simple example, before bannings there were at least 5 transfer tokens for sale priced at minimum 13 mill in luna. Now u basically dont see a transfer token anymore. Not to forget these vendors have been constantly stocked for at least 5 months now, to suddenly see them empty simultaneously seems more then coincidence to me.
