And then I realize that I'm still crafting and selling spells the same as I ever was and have no idea what I'd USE this pp for. This is new for me, since my entire EQ career I was usually strapped for cash, so I don't know what to do with what I have now. I still need a few faycite shards, but that's still some faction grinding away. I'm working on maxing tradeskills, but my guild has been great about saving and then giving out tradeskill supplies to those working on them, so I don't expect I'll need much in that regard.
What do people do with their cash?
I really wish they would reconsider this whole no-drop business. I've played on FV and it didn't wreck a thing.
On some servers people use their plat to buy OMM taskadds or UF taskadds - those can siphon plat depending on what it is you're aiming for.
Otherwise, unless you're leveling up tradeskills or paying outrageous farmer prices for spongy loams or immaculate whatevers, there isn't much to do with platinum these days.
I've don't believe I've ever had more than about 300Kpp at any one time throughout my entire EQ life. The reason for that really is because I have about 15 characters to gear and buy spells for as well as I recently had 4 RL friends that returned from EQ2/WoW and/or whatever game they were off playing and I've been twinking them out.
Also, I guess it hurts the bank account when you tend to give stuff away to guildies instead of tossing them on your trader.
I guess if not for the above, I'd have a ton of cash too. I have given away in excess of 500K pp over the last couple of months.
But I also have reached that point of not needing money, so why bother? I often xp without looting corpses. I hardly ever do tradeskills now unless it is by request. Why bother spending hours making things to sell if you don't need the money?
The cost of mercs for myself and my other toons, the cost of aug swapping, occasionally having to buy a new type 3 aug (because you have to destroy them instead of moving them), potions and pearls. That's about it really.
