Is it time to just rip off the Band-Aid™ and be done with it?
Unannounced in this week’s additions to the StationCash Marketplace were the addition of in-game merchant-bought arrows (no great shakes compared to woodworker-made ones) to the StationCash Marketplace. When prompted on the EQ2 Forums, EQ2 Senior Producer Dave “SmokeJumper” Georgeson had this response:
They’re just the basic arrows you can get from merchants. It’s a convenience thing for folks that run out of arrows in the field.
and later in a similar topic in the Tradeskills forum:
It’s pure convenience. Some players are willing to spend a buck to avoid leaving a raid or dungeon to resupply with arrows.
Player response has varied from “Get this crap off the live servers and put it back on EQ2X“, to “if my group/raid expects me to buy items from the Marketplace to stay competitive, I’ll tell them to pound sand” to “Why not just rip off the Band-Aid and put RMT on the live servers, since that’s where we’re headed anyway.”
UPDATE: In response to player concerns, these arrows have been removed from the StationCash Marketplace. From SmokeJumper:
We never intended to start a fight here, folks.
