Need More Use for Gold

Postby Darvin on Tue Sep 27, 2011 4:29 am


Why? Because I can. There's really no other reason at this point. I'm closing in on 60k gold in the bank, I've long since run out of stuff to spend it on. I can have a bad night of misclicks and have to shell out thousands of gold for locker item retrieval (on top of excessive preparation costs that get wasted) and still turn a profit over the course of the sitting. Any time I get some odd idea in my head that actually results in a net profit... my bank account skyrockets.

Now, I'm not saying gold should become a central part of the kingdom, but something would be nice. Right now there's no reasonable (ie, non-frustrating) gold sink that could possibly absorb what a concerted effort at gold farming can do, so just give us some obscene stuff that we can purchase. Extra locker space might work. Price the 7th slot at 10k, the 8th slot at 20k, the 9th at 40k... so on and so forth.

I've been asking for a gold sink for quite some time now. I certainly hope one gets implemented soon but I have the feeling maybe the developers wanted to see the balance without such a sink first.

Still, while I was quite interested in the preparations and kingdom building etc before the game was actually released, having tens of thousands of gold seems so empty now.

Yeah, income is exceeding costs as well. By the looks of things we still need upgrades for each of the races and the bank, and I suppose the bank could have some additional features in them. Maybe they should partner up with the Mossy Isle Casino and introduce some other games?

How about a class or race that costs gold to deploy. Maybe a Tinker?
