It's therefore not at all outside the realm of possibility for someone in this community to use the forum as "cover". You have to understand, there's been a lot of drama in these forums, and RMT is like a drama beacon.

But at the same time ... there are also lots of nice people that just give away incredible gifts to complete strangers. I myself once had a random player I'd never met give me a JBB (worth well over 30k at the time) many years ago, so I certainly don't want to suggest that everyone's a crook either.

I'm just saying that from an outsider's perspective it can be hard to distinguish the two here, so I'm only cautiously optimistic about this.
I remember a druid bitching about porting so I asked him why he was doing it if he didnít enjoy it. He said he was saving up for a lumni staff and I enquired how far short he was and gave that as a tip.

I wonder if he bought one and quit porting. I hope so as he seemed to hate porting, but if I had to guess Iíd bet he kept porting for plat anyway.

[You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] I bet he did.

FWIW years later I found a random Shaman in Sebilis and gave him the JBB to complete the cycle (although by then it was only a 20k item). Hopefully it started a "pay it forward" tradition where he someday later gave it to yet another Shaman ... but if so I'll never know (I'd have to dig through my logs to even find the Shaman's name at this point ...)

I'm saving up my first 18k for a JBB by level 45 (36 now). If any of you high rollers want to save a seat at your table for me I'd love to dance barbarian jigs with no shirt on [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]
