Why not just set it back to the way it used to be, RNG is not fun, once a spot give Dull Copper, it always gives dull copper.. This is much less painful when it comes to gathering, and make it longer for that area to re-supply.. This was the best system, you could mine WHAT YOU WANTED, and not get a little of everything, which, never amounts to anything unless you AFK macro... If it was old school gathering, I would be gathering my own shit.. but now the RNG is just plain stupid
This. Add it to lumberjacking as well and do not change rules.

The only idea I still have on the table is the NPC idea. Let me lay it out one last time, along with prices, and if everyone hates it then we end this conversation here with everything staying as it currently is. (Minus the fact that we are going to start calling it "Unattended Gathering" and not "AFK Gathering" to combat the argument "Well I was at my computer the screen was just minimized".

NPC Selling Resources Idea
  • Players could join certain NPC guilds, created around the world, for 25,000gp.
    • Players can only be a part of one guild at a time.
    • Being a member of a specific guild lets you buy items from the NPC Guild Master.
  • *Concept* The Mining Guild Master.
    • Always has 999 ingots in stock.
      • Iron = 5gp per ingot
      • Dull Copper = ??
      • Shadow = ??
      • Copper = ??
      • Bronze = ??
      • Golden = 1,000gp per ingot
      • Agapite = 1,500gp per ingot
      • Verite = 2,000gp per ingot
      • Valorite = 2,500gp per ingot
    • Sells ingots for more than market value. (set by the players)
Odds of resource gathering, when mining, at GM Mining.
Code:
                49.6% // Iron
                
                11.2% // Dull Copper
                
                9.8% // Shadow Iron
                
                8.4% // Copper

                7.0% // Bronze

                5.6% // Gold

                4.2% // Agapite

                2.8% // Verite
                
                1.4% // Valorite

Seems my post was deleted, I will post it again, and if you decide to delete it again.. then go ahead and delete my forum account as well..

Resources have always been a Supply & Demand, thing.. Selling ingots at an NPC sets a price, and will be used as a reference.. by selling iron ingots at 5g each ( Which is too low ) yea.. someone could sell theirs for 4g.. but Iron Ingots would NEVER be worth more than 5gp per.. you are killing supply and demand on resources.. This is a good idea, but bad implementation.

Make the NPC BUY ingots from players, and then resell them to players marked up.. BUT ONLY SELL, WHAT THEY PURCHASE.. no more..

No post was deleted in this thread.

The NPC blacksmith has always sold iron ingots at 5gp. There is no change there.

We are not making an NPC that buys ingots. I feel that just promotes unattended gathering, will remove resources, and pump gold into the economy. The idea is to remove gold and pump some resources into the economy.

Isn't it good that he increase price based on demand for taking the easy way?

Players can still gather the old way this is just a way to help pump some resources into the world.

Also unless we have more than a few objections, in the next few weeks, we are going to try it. We can always remove it.

Right now I see the vote is 50/50
