useless items (in General)

-.- the amount of useless items in stores really bugs me lol.... although i understand the rational of having a a higher spawn rate... but this is ridicious lol... how many people do you see using shop equipment other then leather armor... even the huge variety of weapons and armor available... how many people actually use them? i doubt a newbie would need so many.... and even so... whats the point of such a huge selection when nobody ever uses them... a NUB will most likely save up alittle and just buy stuff like MCM or wadever -.-"
*PS on a side note i think daggers RULE! :x

Um, yeah, wow! Shouldn't whatever automatically clears out "dead" items be sped up too? That is quite a bunch of junk.

i believe they clear out and restock... so accually i think the number of items stays around the same -.-

I said this before, 90% of the items in the store are useless. Should just have a sword, bow, body armor, gloves, boots, pants, bracers, etc.

Shovel too... ! and maybe some purple pirate booties.

I wish i had purple pirate boots, *sighs* I have red converses so they are the next best thing I guess, as a side note, i completely agree with Mimic, and the subject of the thread.

Maybe just remove the stores totally? Let new minions be auto-equipped with the basics then just have a fletcher which sells ammo. Who actually actively buys stuff from stores besides ammo when they've been around a while except to mess around?

As a newbie, the stores look alot more important. At least I used to dig the store :) Gives a feeling of progression to go through and buy the various weapons (armors) as your character can equip them. That is the reason why Jon keeps all the varieties of items there, and it has exacly the effect he wants, in my opinion.

When you grow over the useless items in the store, and I know it's not very long, what does it matter that it's full of crap anyway?

While it is true that 36 leather caps is a bit much...the different kinds of equipment in stores should not be eliminated, IMO. And anyway, right now our number of active players is rising, so maybe all the junk will find a use in later weeks?

I agree that it adds to the RPG'ish feeling of CB, but as you say, it very quickly fades away and becomes a quest for a BoNE etc. Maybe abolishing them is a bit harsh, but certainly less item types is better than so many items. I have NEVER used a halberd, not even in CB1 ;)
