Only going to get worse. 98% of gear on blue has 0 value outside of vendor price. Even the stuff that does have value it's really hard to find someone selling or to sell because EC tunnel is dead outside of like Friday and Saturday nights.

The craziest thing is people choosing to sell to vendor for nothing, instead of giving an active player a steep discount on something.

Also still doesn't make sense why fungis are as expensive as there are, considering just how many of them that there are, or similar items

Or how an FBSS is still expected to be worth 1000pp.

Some people's kids, man.

I like how a fungi is worth a million bandages. Feels right [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Well they're vendoring because it will take way more time to find someone to take that steep discount depending on what gear it is. Tunnel is dead sometimes.

Other high value items actually make sense for their price. People talk about supply and demand, but what they also don't take into account is inflation. if anything, something like a fungi should be technically higher because even if it stays at the same price the value of each platinum piece you receive as the seller goes down every day as more and more plat is pumped into the economy.

Forget zones and things like that for custom content, I want to see plat sinks lol. Maybe add the casino bots into Highkeep which Brad said was originally planned. Or maybe make Velious armor gems purchasable at a vendor for the standard market rate. Might not make a huge dent but every bit helps.

Fungis could easily cost 200k and they'd still be worth it

OP, is your assessment still the same? Or have you perhaps hit a loot drought yet?

When everyone needs to buy a manstone(etc), that requires everyone to farm a ton of crap first.

As I said, that is just one example, of many. Ive noticed the price coming down for alot of what used to be rare and highly sought after high level items that are now common and cheap and no one wants. Every other new toon you see nowadays is rocking lvl 50+ gear that can be bought in ec for super cheap. Even given away for free because no one wants it. I mean.. its kinda silly and defeats the purpose of earning your own shit. There is an old saying... If everything is special, then nothing is. The magic of eq is lost.
So this is what happens on a time-locked server. There's content in MMORPGs for about 2 years before they become stale. This one has been going on for 4 years with no expansions to make people believe the new imaginary items are worth more imaginary money. Everything now is farmed into the ground, and only the real valuable fake things have any real fake value.

The magic is your dopaminergic reward system in your brain informing you that pursuing elf dreams is a worthwhile goal in your life. The sense of loss you're experiencing is the reality dawning on you that dead end server elf dreams are, in fact, not a good time investment.
