That's why they should give someone like me the keys to the kingdom and make me a Senior GM. I give no poops about any of the people or guilds here or about plat or about money. I can't be corrupted and in fact would make it my personal mission to f with anyone who tried to corrupt me. Of course, I don't give enough poops to bother to log in, so there will be a lot of disputes ignored, corpses lost and MQs eaten.

to that level

my guess is : drugs + RMT

Some people who were smart played the market right, and bought shit like beads and manastones and circlet of shadow (I forget who but I remember one guy claiming to have like 30 of them on mules) low and held them for years and years

You could have bought 8 pairs of beads for like 100k back in the day and it's now worth.................. yeah. (Or you could have traded ur beads for a cloak of flame a few months before sneak nerf)

Then there are the farm crews. Now i've made a shit load of plat at fungi and juggs, but that was... idk casual? I logged when i felt like it, I /exit'd when I wasn't having fun. Not those kind of farm crews. Think Sirfloppin earth staff farmers. I mean shit, that crew was 8-10 manning VP dragons. They made a shit load of plat.

Those kind of hit squads seem to be dead anymore fwiw.

I was making 30-50k a day PLing in kunark on fasttimes. Plat is easy to get .

Farm crew were making like 6-8mil a month for 6 to 8 months back in the days green white scale bladestopper fear golem were farmed, earth staff epic quest

One saldrinite went for 5mil in value recently
Bruicse transacted it for 3.2mil

Yeah that AM farm crew had me tilted for a long time I remember them. They were the neckbeardiest of players I've ever seen on any everquest iteration live or private. They had alts parked at the fountain in hate for Magi, lvl 52 tov geared alts parked at vox and naggy, and some lvl 60s parked in SE corner of fear for golems. Pretty sure they did not miss a spawn like ever, no matter what day or time that shit popped they were on in under 30seconds ready to pull every time. It got to the point where some guild was actually sitting on the temples reclearing the trash for the entire spawn window to get golems. Not long after that the GM's made it so Golems were considered raid targets and you could no longer camp out inside or sit on the spawns to kill them.

I will never forget that time that AM farm crew wiped on a golem at like 12% and he went into flee mode and I ran up and finished it off, got the kill and he dropped double slime bloods. I linked that shit in /ooc with the biggest grin on my face, ever. Needless to say they were pretty mad and I received quite a few hate tells from them, even though I didn't break any rules. Got the kill fair and square. Really wish I had been able to clip that but my shadowplay wasn't working at the time.

I'd be curious to know how much total plat they made in that time frame selling drops from those mobs. It had to be several million assuming they sold every earth staff, white scales, epic piece MQ they got. There was quite a few RMT accusations thrown their way. I had a brief convo with either aikons or conda, someone on their farm squad, when I was on the fear tracker and he claimed they needed the plat to fund guild recharges, throwing out some crazy number like they were spending 500k+ a week to recharge. It seemed high to me but I have no idea if it was true or not.
