    Turbine's Consensus on Farming Virindi Routes + magtools?

    1) CoC still stands all farming routes not allowed.
    2) CoC still stands all farming routes look the other way
    3) CoC still stands all farming route don't matter-not issue
    4) CoC still stands all farming routes ok to do.

    Just wondering because the economy has reached bottom, only the big time farmers
    or Virindi Route or Magtools users can obtain the thousand s of MMDs needed to buy the high end stuff.

    I think 100 MMDS can last me a year so MMDs worthless to me. I personally won't accept as payment for any trades, but there are no trades so it is a mute issue.

    edit: My mistake it must me EPS salvage not mag tools that make the 400k salvage bags
    Plus that relogger

    Maybe I missed this feature in Magtools, but I haven't noticed it and I certainly didn't pay for it. I think you may have it confused with another plugin.

    The salvage plugin you are talking about is NOT Mag-tools.

    Mag tools does not combine salvage the way that the "pay for plugin" that is being sold by some dude on Darktide does ... in fact it doesn't combine salvage at all ... .... vtank will combine salvage but it just uses the stock standard combine salvage method that is built into AC ... when you have a full bag your done ... it doesn't combine nearly full bags for maximum cash .... if you want you can do that manually if that's your thing

    Dev team meant to make salvaging a way of making cash hence the +25% and spec salvage augs ..... I think (and its my own personal opinion and may or may not be true) that people with 10's or thousands of MMD's got them all in the platinum scarab bug years ago ..... plus some people have been playing a long long time and have saved up a bunch ....

    anyhoo .....

    Anybody can set up routes using vtank.

    I don't see how it's a "speed hack" as you put it. It's a program designed to do something simple for you more efficiently then you can do it yourself. Whoopidy doo.

    Are you mad because you don't have access to a certain plugin? Cause that's what your original post screams.

    Incorrect -- you can farm really, really quickly now. Just need a lot of 2hand characters in AoD with a triple-thwack axe.

    This is as much an issue as using vtank to combat macro for xp or lum. These plugins do not give you any kind of extra functionality, they just automate what a player can already do manually. So, unless they're going to address the issue of combat macroing in general, this shouldn't be touched. It should be all or none.

    The economy is tough mostly because this loot tier has been ingame for so long. Add in the fact that a lot of players have multiple accounts or multiple characters that they play and it's more likely that players will keep a good pierce or armor or weapon for an alt than sell it.

    It's rare now that a mage will trade a hearty epic for an adept epic, because they probably have a melee that can use the hearty piece, instead of earlier in the loot tier when your entire focus was building one suit for your main. As a result, it takes a player a long time to gear all their characters to a level in which they no longer need the good pieces and start selling/trading them. And, at this point in a player's progression, having spent/traded many mmds in the process of acquiring a suit and equipping an account their sense of "value" have been altered because of the difficulty of reaching such a point. A player's mentality might change from "geese I need to get geared as cheaply as possible because my suit still has a long way to go" to "this piece I'm selling will never been to be replaced; I'm certainly not going to let it go for cheap." Often at this point a player won't even sell items because they value pieces significantly more than those who are looking, or have no use for mmds. This results in the rich getting richer (and hoarding), while those trying to catch up continue to struggle.

    Gone I think, are the days when players HAD to depend on the economy to gear themselves.

    The easiest way to make money now (IMO) is to find one or two really really nice items via mfks/casino/whatever and finding somebody who will spend bundles on it.With those mmds you can put yourself in a pretty decent set major suit with max weapons, probably with money to spare (as a side note, I recently saw a returning player trade a GCK for an non set epic suit; FANTASTIC move on their part imo).

    You kinda contradicted your own point here....

    You brought up a "issue", then said: nevermind it in fact does not matter.

    Non-set epic suit -- worth 100 MMDs at most, or generally given away for free out of kindness.

    GCK -- worth 1400 MMDs or so. Not the best move on that guy's part.

    1400 mmds?! Wow, yeah that would never fly on HG. GCKs go for 250-300 here. IMO GCK for a full epic suit is just about spot on and perfectly spot on if you go the clothes/jewelry to make it a full and true epic suit.

    Fantastic move actually. He traded something that he MIGHT get something good from, for a suit that will allow him to immediately jump back into the game. He doesn't have to worry about pulling the right pieces, getting good AL, or tinking. Plus, considering he just resigned he's probably got a few extra gcks on other chars. He essentially traded chance for useability. I'd do the same thing in a heartbeat.

    Re: Turbine's Consensus on Farming Virindi Routes + magtools?

    10 GCK's finished off a 5/4 suit for one character, got a few defender set epics i pieced together other non set epics with for my alt plus 3-4 non set epic suits for mules that I just felt like throwing suits on.

    Yeah, I would never ever ever trade a GCK for a non set epic suit.

    Edit: and that's not counting the major/epic BT weapons i have saved up for alts from GCK's.

    Frankly, if you want a good-sized in game wealth hoard, then do something intelligent to get it. (You'll find this a far more productive use of your time than standing around and complaining about what others do or don't do.) And if you don't want such wealth, then you have no grounds to complain of your comparative poverty in the first place.
