I am disappointed with the patch notes for this week. There was no fix for gem rocks, nor a fix for the uselessness of stone spirits when doing high level PVM. Can we at least get an acknowledgement that something is planned with an ETA? The philosopher troll, born with the hands of a skiller and the mind of a jester.

The spirits were addressed and acknowledged in a stream last week. From my understanding, they are going to wait a little longer to see how the economy reacts to them in the long-run.

I am just as upset with them. We were promised replacement items reletively equal to the items being nerfed ( they did perfectly fine on replacing rune item drops, but completely failed in replacing ore drops.)

I just did an entire hour at nex earlier and got nothing but rune and coal stone spirits. For an entire hour.

I counted ATLEAST 5 rune spirit drops which prior to update would have been 900k profit each drop. And about (3) 2400 coal spirit stone drops which used to be atleast 3 or 400k ish?
But now replaced with useless unsellable items... so actually lost quite a bit of profit that hour.

I am extremely unhappy with the rework that I am considering deactivating my.membership and completely leaving this game unless issues can be fixed. I waited quite awhile to see if the stone spirits would sell and they just don't... I understand needing a rework in skillings, but this update COMPLETELY screwed us PvMers.

I said it isn't completely unprofitable. I said it drastically effected the profitably of it.

HIGHER LVL PVM Monsters such as rax, nex, and I believe telos (honorable mention being QBD aswell but she isn't really high lvl) dropped massive amount of ores pre rework.

With all ore drops being changed to spirit stones (which good freaking luck selling)
It drastically nerfed gp/hr doing bosses.

I suggest changing all previous ore drops into noted salvage equal to previous prices prior to rework. And completely getting rid of stone.spirits with the exception of the perfect juju potion

Good, PvM shouldn have never been a catch-all for moneymaking.

- Bars should be replaced by salvage - just as they did for metal dragons. They're worth more than ores, so should be their replacement.
- Spirits should be adequate to whatever the creature fought is - so gwd1 should drop necrite/phasmite, gwd2 should drop bane, telos/araxxi should drop animica - and so on.

And no - spirits can be useful. It just doesn't help if there is a ton of rune and adamant, but none of the others.

I disagree. It should be a "catch all". PVM requires actual skill to efficiently do it, on top of needing the required levels, having to focus 100% AND time abilities right (for high lvl bosses)

It definitely should make more money than anything else in game. It's not afking a skill.
