i get that some people are upset about the change, but this thread has a very serious flaw in it's argumentation, and it's mindboggling it gets so many upvotes just because people favor anyone/anything saying to revert the loot-changes...
Who gets 2plat for doing TG? The lead gets 2plat (more often it'S slightly below 2plat....2,5p is an exxaggeration). That is ONE person in a raid of multiple hundreds of people (otherwise you aren't doing it in 50minutes) and the leader has to distribute loot at the end, so even that single person isn't making 2plats in 50minutes.
People selling feathers doesn't create gold into the economy.
PS: i am not saying everything is fine...but to discuss problems we need to talk about actual issues, and not upvote every single argument, no matter how bad, just because it supports a popular topic
Feathers are a currency and have an exchange rate, one that has stayed stable despite the nerf to solo farming so I thought it was a good anchor point to talk about money in Phoenix. Since you can sell 2 - 2.5 platinum for less than an hour of game time invested TG gives the highest plat per hour of any PvE activity.
I'm not saying solo farming should give you 2.5 plat an hour, and it previously didn't (about 1plat per hour from salvage was what I got). I'm just saying that 100-300gold an hour is too low, and players who can't make TG, or play during a time that supports DS, or just like to solo should be able to at least afford potions and temp pieces with a reasonable investment of time.
If you don't like the TG anchor point I allude to a second, and maybe better one, the amount of platinum people end up with once they reach 50.
Like others alluded to, the nerf was clearly meant to adjust for inflation in hibernia, and maybe it worked, but it definitely hurt more casual players in other realms and I doubt that was it's intention.
I'm not going to break out the "I will quit over this" card, I love what Phoenix has done with DAoC, but as my ratio to "in game activities I do for fun" to "in game activities I do so I can have fun later" get's smaller it becomes harder to justify booting the game up, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
