You find a An Amulet of AC [0] (+4). Use it well!

Thats pretty cool. A lot of the changes I have missed over the last 2 years I like quite a bit :)

:)..

I'm glad someone like's that change.. Allot of people are against it though since everyone took a significant reduction in cash rewards. Like 20% I do believe? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

1/5th was Jon's direct quote so translated it would indeed be 20%

I remember seeing that changelog when I was looking. At the same time though Auction prices are rock bottom for pretty much everything.

A Cloak of the Istari [6] (+9) Aug 24 $263,725 Winning Bid!
A Set of Chain Mail Leggings [18] (+1) Sep 2 $20,763 Winning Bid!
A Pair of Alatar's Gloves [0] (+5) Sep 2 $250,000 Winning Bid!

Just a few examples. I remember a couple years back these items would have run me a lot more money. I like the idea of the market being flooded, since other then supporter items any one can do whatever strat they want.

Since I sold off my top 10 character (at the time anyways hehe, wouldn't cut it now) and all my gear I am happy with the relative ease in getting that equipment back.

Maybe I am wrong, but it seems more user friendly when starting from scratch then I remember :)

Ahhh if there were more with that same perspective my friend CB would be a much better place for it!

The only reason it is so easy to get the items is because of the dwindling user base. If we were to get a ton more people here these items would go back up in price because so many more would be wanting them :)

That is half of the effect sox. The other half is that the spawn rate for items was adjusted and it is still higher than it was before by at least double.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] September 5 2010 11:37 PM EDT

Yeah, it's extremely too high, but what do I know...

Personally I think it improves the metagame by giving everyone easy access to most of the items. With the right amount of planning you can pretty much do any strat you want.

The only exceptions would be a TSA PL wall and NSC on a decay minion, or something else with a supporter item I don't even know about :)

Drops are nice. It's the Katana drops that suck :P

alot of issues in this game would clear up with a growing or large player base. Which is good that it is balanced that way because otherwise the game would get worse as you got more people, and nobody wants that.

Unfortunately, just because it's balanced for a growing and large player base doesn't mean it's catered to one. Maybe, eventually, the game will be changed to encourage people to join rather than just make the 200 people playing it currently still happy.
