Re: Making non-magical items always save

Well, sorry to say this, but while it is good you consider how to help newbies I feel it is a move in wrong direction. The problem is, 99% of eq worth saving IS magical. As I see it, donate boxes are full of eq usable for newbies, so saving any crap on them wont change much. Perhaps some more focus ...

Re: Stopping script-buying on the Auction House

Cherek, Gorboth. Do not take me wrong. I do appretiate your job, I do understand coding and implementing things take time. But this discussion kind of ended with Gorboth's declaring: I'm interested in the challenge of creating a captcha that would foil script interpretation. I'll set my mind to it. ...

Re: Stopping script-buying on the Auction House

Well, some interesting ideas were put here, but still items keep beeing bought out in 0,5 secs. Of course since the imbue drop rate was nerfed dramatically, the amount of them appearing on AH is much much smaller, so the problem seems not so hot, but anyway, it sucks. I would suggest - do not wait f...

Re: The Scouring of the Forum

Ehh since I became really active here recently, I'll add my 2cc on this issue as well.. I'd just say - Guys, relax. Moderating forums is pretty standard practice. I believe the administration wants just avoid insults, swears, dropping **** at each other, etc. Being civil won't hurt anyone. Give em a...

Re: Stopping script-buying on the Auction House

Btw. I believe AH botting is against the rules already: Quote from help botting: " Automation designed for UNATTENDED control of the character is unwelcome in Genesis..." So if someone stays logged on UNATTENDED but still controlls his char to bid - it is breaking the rules, even if not specified as...

Re: Stopping script-buying on the Auction House

I think maybe we should pool buyout bids over 2-3 minutes and draw a winner after that time. Quoted the idea once more. So simple, so good. Looks like the best from all the ideas proposed, as already stated. Edit: adding captcha is fine ofc, better than trying to prove if anyone is botting or not. ...

Re: Droprates in Grinding Zones

1. For now I cannot see any diffrence in drop rates in grinding zones, but I believe I'll see some in time, the change seems like a move in good direction to return fun from the imbues. If non-dulling slots returned (at least some of them), imbuying something would become back a possible option.. If...

Re: Imbuement and Armour Changes ...

Yes I probably could write a script or ask for one. But it would not solved anything for me, since my link is not the fastest one. Still the question is open - should the best link decide?
