Remove all of the items that were removed from the game because of balance issues. Manastone, Guise, Rubi BP all should have never been on this server. Any items like this in Kunark should be removed before Kunark releases.

The fact that such items exist and are even possible to attain is one big draw for some people. It's also preserves the classic feel - the unique progression of EQ.

What fun would the universe be if when we discovered quantum physics the creator just nerfed it.

Mannastone, serious question. Are you retarded, or just assbergers?

Saw your post history. Go back to RnF. Not even a good troll.

First, a simple, irrefutable economic fact that destroys every argument to make the list easier: price elasticity of demand
Your post is 100% correct, but I think it might be clearer without this fact. Because the supply is fixed, the elasticity of the item is irrelevant.

What's all this unclassic jibah jabah? The whole freaking EQ loot system is a lottery. How the hell is that unclassic? people could be killing the shroom king from day one until the drop is nerfed and NO ONE could get a single staff.

A slot machine and a lottery aren't the same.

Camping a mob solo is a slot machine. If the numbers hit, I win.

The proposed idea to random off the item to top X people camping is a lottery on TOP of a slot machine. Gotta hit the RNG it drops, THEN you gotta hit the RNG it goes to you.

#1 has put in significantly more time than #6 - it doesn't make sense to random it off with equal odds. No additional RNG should be artificially added into EQ on P99 Green unless their is an incredibly good reason to do so. None has been given so far.

I'm not saying RNG isn't a big part of EQ. Lottery is not. Player agreed "scout roll" and "server-wide raid" is fine if players want to come to an agreement. There will never be a player agreement on legacy items. Devs/GMs have to make an executive decision, and the best option is the current list system.

The List (as it is) is the best we have. It's as fair as it gets.
Quote:
  • First come, first served to get on list
  • No one can cheat you out of your spot on the list
  • No group or guild can hold the camp or list hostage or totally dominate it so others can't get on
  • No one can go AFK for extended periods of time
  • The item cannot be ninja looted
  • When someone makes it to #1 and it drops, it's 100% their item
  • When the list item drops, #1 is removed from the list and everyone moves up 1 spot. #1 cannot lie and say the item didn't drop, and keep camping the item.

No. the current list system sucks because it severely rewards non classic experience in mass account sharing which was actually against the rules in classic EQ. You got it all twisted backwards.The current system is far worse than a random one and it.s a billion years from being "fair".


Also most groups when they went to camp mob X for a drop it was usually RANDOMED amongst the group.
