there was nothing wrong with how trials was before it was yet another way to farm ec and they should add it bk
I think that if the EC exchange was added back in (which I doubt will happen) it would create more activity within guilds. Trials are able to be solo'd but it takes time and multiple clients. I don't find them to be easy routes of gaining EC as trials do take a chunk of your time to complete.
I truly miss the old forges. It was great incentive for people to participate in trials as a faction no matter what level toons they had. By taking all the mats and exchanging them for EC, you could split among members who participate, the new way has really stomped the trials for factions as a whole.
can you imagine how long they would spend running trials to get that EC though? How is it unfair that they have the drive to farm that much every week or abusive for that matter. I mean you would have to ether make alts to run the trials in every faction or pull your mains in and out doing base quests along the way and while that may have been the case then with the new merit requirement that wouldn't be so possible now. If you have taken the time to lvl up that many alts capable of running trials why is it abusive to use them and make a return.
Before if u solo'ed trials u could get 3k+ ecs from all 9, imagine doing that let's say, u make 5 factions and use same chars since u don't need hours just 200 Merit ( do BQ once... ) if u can finish all trials in one day and make em 5 days each week that would be like 15k ec per week, doing that for 1 month would be 60k ec. Would be quite a big amount for only 1 mounth, just by doing bh on all my alts in like 3+ weeks i can make 10k ec. and 60 is just a number if u get ONLY 3k ec but u can get more, let's not say if there's a 2x...
Ikr i used to solo all trials but right now it's more than useless and a waste of time even with 2x (bh/Hh) we really do need mats>ec again although it will reduce the amount of donators by like 10% nonetheless i don't think there many of em rather make necessary payment like let's say 30€ for people that would like the mat>ec exchange available.ty
Those donators are what keeps this server so well run. Deal with it or go elsewhere, You QQ about trials at least 7x a week. I make 800ec+ in a week and im a hybrid cleric. :I
