    For those talking about market inflation;
    I don't think it has much to do with gobye's ;) or mesos looted tbh.
    I spend a lot of time in fm and a couple of weeks ago there was one earring int 30% on the market when I owled, and it was mine.
    So I raised the price up to 12m and it sold, the issue for the price inflations aren't because people who goby are driving prices up by buying, it's cause there's almost no supply due to how rare scrolls like that are. This might be due to less active players since school has started back up or something similar.
    I don't know what can be done to fix the prices, or if they need fixing. Perhaps an increase in rare scrolls from gach or an increase in hunting gach in general?

    Also, I remember a user by the IGN of Kouen single-handedly doubled mithril ore prices by buying every single one in the fm for ~25k and reselling them all for ~50k. They have since dropped to around ~42k.
    Incidents like these aren't things that can be easily fixed, and I don't know if they need to be fixed tbh.
    The greatness of goby's was that it allowed bishops to not have to compete with arch mages for selling leech, as it's a lot harder for bishops to 1/2 hit certain maps.
    A friend (LOL) of mine is a level 171 bishop who still can't 1 hit ulu 2 with gene 20. But he also put a lot of time and effort into making 3 mules to efficiently farm goby's and it worked for him. The goby leech market is also a really great way for newer users to level up. It's not super OP because they can't afk, and have to constantly pot if they don't have dark sight. I personally feel like it's a lot more work to get goby ready from scratch than it is to get 1 hit ulu 2/ 2 hit petris/skeles ready.

    This patch is going to cause even more competition for petris/skeles maps and it's going to be awful during events. Perhaps nerf the mesos dropped by goby's, but decreasing the spawn kills the exp which nullifies the leech market there as well.

    While I lament that I can't Goby farm any longer, this is definitely the right choice for the health of the economy.

    A goby farmer can single-handedly introduce tens of millions of brand new mesos into the economy in a single farming session. Hundreds of mils a day if they're particularly industrious.
    A dedicated goby farmer will over their lifetime generate bils of mesos that simply weren't there before. Bils of mesos that are lowering the purchasing power of everyone else.
    And that's just a single person.

    Contrast that to an average leech session, where you only generate a few million mesos per hour through drops.

    The biggest draw to goby farming has always been the ability to farm absolutely unrestrictedly.
    There's no buyers to attract, there's no worries about being too high level, there's no timers to keep track of.

    Now that people have to choose higher mesos/hr and xp/hr vs slow yet steady farming @ gobies, the option that is more harmful to the economy will be chosen less often.

    I disagree with adding reverse/timeless weapons. Doing so, I would npc my purp sleve, which would introduce 500k more mesos into the economy. Not a good idea.

    In that case, why not introduce a custom NPC that sells items for mesos only during events? Start with small items: owls, party bears, and cosmetics (high price). That way the custom NPC doesn't stay forever and creates a temp sale that could work.

    Have KimberlyKimberly sell ects with her name attached to them. Make them uber trophies of the highest regard and giant bragging rights for those that can afford them. 100mil? 1bil? Who knows, but I'm sure some people are vain enough to want a useless item to show off their massive wealth. Kill billions of defenseless mesos willingly. It's also not intrusive for new players because it would take them many months to reach peak wealth to afford useless crap like that, and it isn't in anyone's face unless the buyer is a bragart.

    Literally noone that would actually have 1b would buy that, most useless shit ever lmfao, you can always improve your gear in some way, why would you ever use 1b mesos in a such a shitty way? OnionXD
