Excellent roast. I wonder whether it is true!

I think what he was saying is the same guy camps the magi epic in hate for the last 4 years and it's a bottle neck why there is no mage epics on green.. and he sells it for 800k mq since green started.. and nothing is done about it. Doesn't seem classic to me...makes u wonder..

He's probably a Gnome.

You can't stop Big Gnome.

Certainly not a supporter of this person but at the end of the day someone camping the earth staff 24/7 for years does not make it a bottleneck for getting mage epics. This individual is ensuring that every possible earth staff that can drop does drop and makes it to a mage, the price they charge is determined not by them but by the market which determines the value based off the rarity and desirability of the item. So if anything this individual is contributing to reducing the bottleneck not adding to it.

I.E. if nobody was willing to pay $800k then it wouldn't sell for that because the item has no value to someone farming it that isn't going to turn it into an epic aside from the value of plat that can be obtained by selling.

As a bard I would love for someone to build a market around the white scale, at least then it would be more attainable. Mages should be thankful that there are other options aside from socking hate 24/7 for years to have a shot at your epic.

Are we accusing this individual of deleting earth staffs and intentionally gate keeping to ensure people don't get their epics?

The amount of mage epics is simply a function of how many of the epic components drop over time. We could perma ban said individual from the server and it would have 0 effect on how many mage epics there are past, present, or future.

Simply put some epics are more rare than others, the amount of mage epics on the server isn't that far off from bard epics (another notoriously hard one to complete). The key difference being I see mage epics on untagged players and sometimes even people's lvl 52 naggy/vox bots. Never once have I see a bard epic on a 52 alt or untagged individual on P99 although I'm sure they exist, albeit extremely rare.

Sure there might be some people butt hurt that they actually have to do work to obtain the funds to achieve the mage epic and therefore can't just be a warm body that spends most of their time afk around 30 people with the same tag above their head and gets handed something for free but for the people putting in the effort the cost to buy the piece takes no more time and energy than the cost to earn it through non-plat purchasing systems such as DKP. It just forces you to earn it and prevents them from being handed to people.
