    I'll start it off with a minor one but one that would have at least some impact. Obviously people like rex and sero will think it won't matter at all.

    q1 - 100 gold each enchant
    q2 - 200
    q3 - 300
    q4 - 400
    q5 - 500

    Obviously theres a lot of other ideas out there for gold sinks but I think in conjunction with some other ones, might be not TOO much in one area, while still taking some gold out of the system over time.

    Feel free to post ideas for gold sinks.

    Anything that gets gear broken. More conflict, more fighting, more reasons to siege, more reason to do asset destruction... IDK.

    I'd go back to my usual bone set price hike suggestion but new armours are on the way.

    @Nat 's % CURRENT dura loss on gank idea was a good one.


    I honestly don't even know where all the gold is coming from... I rarely ever farm for raw gold, typically its for enchant mats. I've made over 1mil in the past 2 days cause someone has to be RMTing their ass off for some 120 pots, but where do those people get their gold... IDK.

    Just make some future skins/titles vendor only and a high cost. Currently with skins gold only gets moved around between players and not taken out of the economy.

    I agree with Sero that the durability loss on gear should be greatly increased or make a soft wipe that old gear is considerably worse than new gear as it happened a couple of times in DFO/UW.

    Buff Portal Shard Drop rate and add gold cost to runebooks. People will still be out farming PS as this market was solid all the way until DFO shut down and it will keep people out in the world farming. The gold cost then sorts out the gold sink that was lost when ps were removed from vendors.

    I think there are plenty of gold sinks in the game. In fact it’s quite hard for my new players to even maintain a decent amount of reagents or good gear bags. The issue that the game has is the really good players amass MAJOR wealth because they never lose gear bags so they don’t need gold and just keep piling up. For someone like me who loses 1 or 2 gear bags a day, gold is an issue.

    But if we want more gold sinks, I recommend making housing easier to get into and a higher upkeep on them. Right now there are a TON of empty houses because no one can afford the price to get the deeds for them. That would be my first priority suggestion.

    After that, I think it would be good to put portal shards on vendors and sell them for like 3500 each to regulate the market. Also instead of 2 portal shards per Rune in the Runebook, make it 1 Portal Shard + 2000 gold. That makes it 5500 gold per teleport if you want to use it.

    I know that I don't know what's going on exactly, but like regs:
    • Pshards can be on vendors at a "higher" price than the going price players with luxury gold can buy them anytime.
    • Could could still go farm them if they wanted them for free.
    • Players could still buy Pshards from players at market price.

    gold is not the real problem, population is.

    gold inflation is just one of the consequences of the low population.

    Population isn’t bad right now, surprisingly.

    Dunno how BPG are holding so many players based on failed promises but it’s working.

    Its just more to do with the fact that there is very little choice for gamers like us anymore, and nothing touches DF's combat.

    Actually really worried about this armour patch tbh.

    I honestly have no clue why they are fucking with armour or anything combat related.

    We need hotspots, reasons to fight etc.

    It just feels like armours and other small things is the only thing BPG can do so they aren’t bothering with anything else. It’s such a shame they should’ve just bought UW license at this point. It had everything they are already doing / done to the game.

    Once they add territory control bonuses (another UW ripoff), hopefully Holdings will have value, and theres 200k+ a drop gold sink

    I understood but its not going to be what alot of people are worried about. I just finished up the construction of the armor itself robes now i'm going to test the rigging soon. Someone else is working on the leather. I was worried too but remember they will be putting armor patch on the public test for us to configure it to make it more fitting instead of pulling a DFUW.

    Let’s hope there isn’t only 5 people testing this time.

    Make sure to spread the word among your friends when the public testing is announced.

    Feedback will be very important.
