Yeah I paid for a bunch of gear on what would be my first remaining main account on blue with a sold account. No $ profit made, just in game plat which helped me with items for my main cleric.

Looking back, doing it seems unthinkable [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

No it isn't. It's playing the game as intended, as the developers designed it. It's no different from playing Hearthstone and hoping for a good topdeck. It's gambling when you roll dice (or some similar random event) to see whether you win or lose money. Camping a mob is not gambling by any reasonable interpretation of the word.

It kinda is though, via random-ratio operant conditioning. Both situations have you knowingly rolling a random outcome (killing mob for specific loot) that you intellectually know is stacked against you but feels all the more emotionally rewarding for being a lucky find

Would drop so much plat on a chance to get a manastone or a pre-nerf fungi staff.

we know the code exists for sure and would be reasonably easy to implement because Shadow Haven had a casino NPC
