Seriously bots farming lots of oj shards and scroll. Bringing down market price.

    I don't think it's bots.

    I think they've increased the drop rates for OJ shards in the Rise Update.

    Are you saying names like dsgafg are not bots?

    "cheap" in US East is still several times more expensive than EU prices... xD

    at least your "Cheap" is better than the EU "cheap"; you're advantaged with fixed costs such as repair/synthesis while EU sucks **** in that department

    Back to econ 101. "Cheap" is relative. USEast and EU currency are not the same. That's like saying things in Japan are uber expensive because something that only costs a few dollars is hundreds of yen.

    Prices are "higher" in USEast for the same reason supply is higher - tons of bots farming gold and pumping it into the economy via kids with their parents' credit card, causing hyper inflation.

    some people are just lazy to think of a name for their characters

    Yep 6-12 "people" are farming and selling more season 2 mats than the entire rest of the server combined. Putting up impossible to obtain amounts of items every few days. I know when I list items I like to list 600 at a time so that I can make sure I tank the price so I make the least amount of money for my time as possible.

    Don't be so short-sighted.
    Those same bots inflate the value of gold in the server.

    While farmable materials that they throw into the economy might reduce in price the actual gold cost of items that cannot be farmed such as high enhance weapons and really rare drops will go up because of gold becoming inflated.

    It's how Elchy tears were 600m each.
    It's how S2 rare drops at the time were 200m each.

    And it doesn't matter, a person on the end of the bot is profiting from it and that is against the TOS. But I haven't seen Nexon do anything about it so whatever.
