Forging wanting some bonus... (in General)

AN|M4L March 3 2007 5:09 PM EST

I was thinking, hearing a lot of forgers asking for some sort of bonus, why not keep the bonuses we have, but apply them to forgers? I was just thinking, this way it is fair as forgers need a bonus time for themselves.

Say that Wacky Money time makes an even less penalty towards the money the forge takes out on upgrading a weapon (dont know how much tho)

On wacky experience time, may be there should be a bonus to efficiency, i mean technically there is a bonus to efficiency of your characters with their experience, why not give forgers the same thing?

Just a thought...

Been brought up WAY too many times, and there is no downside as there is in fighting, where you receive less money during exp time and vice versa. Can we PLEASE put this in FORS already?

Sorry didnt know this had been brought up a lot... just threw in my idea :)

I'd like to see econ clan ratings based soley on forging advances! That way the rankings would be meaningful and you could give some actual bonus to the clans based on their rankings. Why the heck are ratings based on the number of CB2$ shuffled around anyway?

"Can we PLEASE put this in FORS already?"

It's really not a retarded suggestion...

"Been brought up WAY too many times, and there is no downside as there is in fighting, where you receive less money during exp time and vice versa. Can we PLEASE put this in FORS already?"

There's plenty of downside! I'm willing to take a 3000% XP penalty for a 50% forging penalty. That's less bonus than you get and way more penalty.

Ohhh, that's right. We get *NO* exp for forging. Maybe the fact that there's a huge penalty to it already is the downside?

Just because you think it is a FORS doesn't mean it is. It means you think it is one. Stop saying it should be there as if what you say is fact.

Forging IS the downside to CB....No exp gains AND lower money gains, where is the upside to this? People using more BA forging than someone fighting STILL would make less money than the fighter....

Forging helps people... You only have to pay 70% usually for your upgrades. Maybe if you're not getting something forged, there are countless others. We should show some appreciation. :D...

A much better way to make money is to start a new character and fight up as much as you can for as long as you get a 100% challenge bonus.

When this stops, start a new one. Does not have to be a NCB.

One upside to forging I can think of...

Like when you buy a high MPR character, but don't have the kind of cash to equip it, you forge. You forge until you have enough money to get decent gear and actually fight correctly.

So no, forging isn't all that could use a small efficiency boost though, I guess.

QBOddBird March 3 2007 11:26 PM EST

Disregarding the moneymaking efficiency, I enjoy forging more than I do fighting. I think that's more than enough reason for me to do that, rather than fight - since you do play this GAME to have FUN - but it'd be nice at very least for my monetary rewards to be better, or to get a wacky time like what the fighters do, or something. =(

Fanta [Fanta's Forge] March 3 2007 11:50 PM EST

Wow, forging, more fun than fighting? :P

But anyway, I have an idea for a wacky time I suddenly just thought of... how about the make efficiency of forging extremely randomized, up to 5x RPM to 1/5x RPM?

It'd be pretty cool, just something forgers can look forward to.

Ok i don't think anyone cares about my opinion one way or the other because i never voice my opinion , but this kinda caught my attention (for the first time i guess.)

First of all like OB said... I enjoy forging more than I do fighting. My character fell apart a long time ago and I really only continued to play because of the community, so i took up forging as a way to get some money to start a NCB. Forging can be a lot faster and suits my lifestyle better anyways.

Second, and more importantly i believe, is the fact that we are such an asset to the community... A lot of people would rather pay a player to do it than the BS. We may take longer but we cost less and a bonus could help us to get our work done faster for those who choose to hire a forger.

Last, i really dont think i know of any bonuses for the forger (please feel free to inform me). I was no good with a strategy and never passed 300k MPR but i made the money by forging to make quite a bit of USD and still bought plenty of higher forging characters and extra items to forge a bit and put back into the community...

Anyway all in all i think the forgers could use something new to look foreward to but thats a forgers opinion... but thats probably my only thought out response to something on here so hopefully it does some good(HA!)

if there is to be any forgers bonus it might as well have nothing to to with wacky exp time but complete sync with wakey money time, maybe they can forge at a better efficiency, like 1.5% over what you can normally charge, this rate cannot be high for obvious reasons

Gandalf March 5 2007 3:27 PM EST

I agree there should be some sort of bonuses for the forgers.

Liked forging > fighting, for fun. Sadly, auctions don't feed my habit anymore.
