Gold nerf is actually a good thing

thats not what it means

flipping = buying stuff from market and resell it with a profit margin

selling your stuff does not mean flipping

i don’t play everyday, i play when i have time so i don’t always get to flip market and do lifeskills plus SH etc, which is why i mainly relied on raids and it worked fine for me, my roster is the proof. i made do with what time i had and it allowed me to progress at a decent pace, that pace doubled on lucky weeks with market etc plus like i said i didnt waste my mokoko mats when i started and saved a lot of the story and roster quest mats. once again, my reality isn’t the same as yours and many others. i do some of the things you all do except rmting, but within the time i have. some weeks i only made 80k gold from raids alone, others i made over 200k+ with raid + market etc. to speak as if you are always lucky on market is wild to me. there are always good and bad days. if you make 5-10% everyday then i commend you because there is deff something im missing.

using ur own stuff is also flipping. i buy shit and resell along with selling shit i get for free at a margin price of 500-2000 gold, depending on what it is i increase prices. before the Gem inflation i mostly flipped gems. back when a lvl5 gem from a least played class was only 180-340 gold. those were my richest days on lost ark lol

Still waiting for proof of any benefit the gold nerf brought.

The prices are through the roof.


So tuesday after the announcement everything on the ah quickly started dropping in price ghl were below 50 gold mhl were below 60 gold bc dropped to 2400 on nae. Its almost like something was added yesterday that would cause an influx of mats being consumed that could drive prices back up to what they were on monday. This is the best thing the devs have done since the 20 item limit

It’s funny, your thoughts on this chart is that it shows real players leaving.

My thoughts is there was a large bot banwave and that 80k player count is closest you’ll get to knowing how many real players this game has.

Lets wait frew days until the bots will be exploiding weekly unas in their millions :wink:

I’m one of those that hink this gold nerf is going to damage the game long term. It’s not like players are gonna go pugging Clown on their alts with the massive DC issues the game has been going through for the past 6 months. Where even a lag spike is likely to cause a jail.

The job of AGS/SG is to get this game to a resonable quality in terms of reliablity. That is something they have not managed to do for a big part of the playerbase. And almost everyone is affected in some way.

Make the game reliable and fair BEFORE you start nerfing rewards for those that even bother.

I’m extremely surprised no anti-bot measures mentioned or in the patch notes.

Bots will be gettting a ton of unas, will see what happens
1304 = 705 token
1415 = 1595 token

The other thing, might have been mentioned above but a lot of the previous anti-bot measures are now useless since they can get 1375 without needing to do any raids. This means life skill prices might nose dive. I was getting 3-5k gold per 10k energy as a player. If bots return to lifeskills, that is another source of income that is being removed.

The boss rush gem chest issue to should be back. Bots should be able clear boss rushes without players help and open boxes too.

Ye - I was trying to point this out here above but got abuse for daring to say una tasks are now great for bots to make gold.

All the anti-bot measures from before have been bypassed with free 1445 characters. Not to mention the more effective farming with 4x3 engravings. Botters will be usinjg stolen CC info to buy 5 dollar game on Steam to get trusted.

Oh believe me it won’t fix economy at all. They took gold out of players but bots remain unaffected. So players who lost their way to farm gold legit either stop playing or start to RMT.
Doesn’t look like a good thing to me, no matter what.


So what happens if all of these measures don’t work to do anything about gold inflation? Blue crystal prices remain the same, bots still offering cheap RMT gold, large quantites of gold from people bussing. Not just that but these changes effectively just killed an entire playerbase in N/H Vykas, and will also result in heavy gatekeeping in H Valtan now. If you don’t take the gold from the hands of the people causing the problem, you don’t fix the problem.

It’s a little weird to release large Legion raids or Legion level Abyss raids every 3 months, and then equally think our economy is the same as a region that received them every 9 months

Agree - I also think its more than little weird to expect players to play alts through harder content in the current nightmare of DC issues. Players have been very patient for months and months now. But forcing players into harder content with the DC issues will get more actual players quitting than bothering to get their alts through Clown.

But it’s pretty clear now that SG is getting paid per active user… no matter how many bots are going around. A proper developer would not be letting Bots have free 1445s and 4x3 engravings with big fat ZERO bot prevention measures for that content. But that is exactly what AGS just accepted. Talking about incompetence.

Even as a super juicer with a huge roster, raids are less than one third of my weekly income. Quantity is the name of the game if you want to beat this as a lower level player and don’t want to push up to 90+

Nerfing legion raid gold when most of the inflation is caused by bots creating gold seems to make complete logical sense to me. I guarantee you if AGS even bothered to examine where gold was coming from, it would be majority coming from bots. KR never got this nerf until a few YEARS after the game released. People had all that time to build up their roster while we get this a year after release.

Not to mention how they executed it. Things with that kind of impact should be announced months in advance not freaking overnight out of the blue FFS. This makes me think SG is either oblivious about what they doing or they don’t give a damn what happens to the playerbase.

Those who are happy other players lost their weekly gold, just don’t come here complaining servers are dead and you have nobody to play with.

Hourly reminder not a single poster has provided actual legit proof that the gold nerf helps in any way at all, the players.


They think that because players earn less gold, it MUST mean that inflation is going to go down so they can afford stuff. Meanwhile bots are still printing gold. :rofl:

Exactly lol.

Their wrong argument is this (citing economy class like they have a ph.d. in it while horrendously failing to realise they’re the clueless ones lol):

Gold nerf → players earn less gold.
Player earn less gold → player can purchase less
Sellers get affected and lower price.
Player can buy again.

First of all, let’s assume through absurdity, it will happen. It will lower the price so the purchasing power is the same as before. If a stone was 10 gold and I would earn 100 gold, I would buy 10 stones. Now I earn 50 gold, so noone buys stone at 10. Sellers decrease to 5 gold per stone. SO I STILL BUY 10 STONES LMFAO. You fixed nothing. Helping the player would have been a change allowing them to buy 20 stones for the same work. Which is increasing the income of stones, not gold. Which is exactly what bots did with books, fish, gems. That WAS actually helping the players.

Second of all the insane ammount of RMT and bussing going on in the game (and keep in mind KR got a bussing patch where you can access all raids with no lockout), means that the gold printing will be the same. This means that the bussers and rmters will pay whatever is in the AH, causing the sellers not to decrease any price, why would they LOL.

Which means legit players get the gold nerf AND the big prices, so double shaft.

Anyone who thinks otherwise is in for an extremely rude awakening.

Truer words were never spoken.
F2P accumulated so much gold already they are 1490, full level 10 gems, 100 quality on each relic set piece and just walking around Nia village tossing gold coins left and right because they don’t know what to do with their money!

Those who don’t participate in raids as frequently can’t afford them to hone up 1 char in an acceptable timeframe since this game doesn’t have many other options to get gold.
Yet everything is expensive AF due to abysmal droprate and scarcity ( by design ).
Don’t try to find logic explanation for a blatant cashgrab.
