Commodities

So, not to be that person, but I guess now I will be.

We as players were told well over a year ago that there would soon be a solution to the commodities issue. Worried about city stockpiles and all that.

We're at the point now where I've had someone from each city ask me to speak to Enorian's leadership about trade. While that would be pretty cool to do, we're not in any place to offer any of the commodities needed by most cities at this point and the NPC cities don't release comms at a rate the puts a dent in the needs of the crafters of Aetolia. These aren't 'optional' comms either. (Not that there are many of those, each comm has practical uses)

Wood, cloth and steel are the ones I hear the most. Armor, vials and bandages require these. Even if you don't care about crafting as much as some, when the comms run dry, so do the means for cities to outfit their fighters.

So, basically, I'm hoping for an update. I play mainly to craft, and boy does it suck to feel guilty about doing something I enjoy or make something that may not be mandatory just because we don't have a solution to the comms issue yet. I can't claim to know what admin plans were or are. I don't know if it's a ploy to get people to invest money in permanent vials and pipes or whatever, but it's to the point where I don't dare to ask my minister to move wood over for purchase because I'm not usually making anything critical. I invested money into crafting and am now finding it to be more limited than it was when I spent the money because people are concerned about running out of things citywide.

Some communication would be great.

had no clue where to put this post, sorry

    I think that would be fine, maybe even a couple so people who are lower level can run through it to get comms. Even having npc cities sell more would be fine, most times they don't sell enough steel to even make one set of fullplate, and that's not taking into account reforging to get that perfect set. I'd take anything at this point!

    I made this complaint when I started as Enorian's trade minister in March and I did not get much of a response on what would be done to fix the issue with stone, steel, wood, etc being bled out of the cities. It's now almost July, I've had countless of messages asking for trade deals and I feel like a bad guy just being like 'sorry, I can't do anything for you.' 

    It takes me almost 2 weeks to get 100 steel or stone from npc cities to support the city. I'm constantly searching, camping out, and spending gold. It can be difficult, but I do whatever I can to make certain Enorian's stock does not reach zero. It would be nice if I could offer our forgers more material to work with, but that would require change.

    So for now:

    I don't want to be pessimistic or ungrateful towards the response, because I do appreciate the coders' time, BUT this topic was raised from the dead in March and by now most cities have fallen into the low thousands for the "needed" commodities. Is there nothing temporary that can be done while we are going through this commodity recession? Because you know it's bad now when Spinesreach and Bloodloch is asking enorian for commodities.

    Don't worry! It wasn't you but when it is I'll have that reason engraved on my tombstone. :(
