I’ve always had shard baskets as well as rough oort stone baskets…

People sell mostly rough to me tho.

Did you check the image before uploading? I think someone bought them all before you took the picture! :slight_smile:

You?

I went there to see if shards are really available for such a good price… they were not. :slight_smile:

I don’t think the question is how high Oort will rise, the question is how long the game can survive if the price is “too high”. No game survives for long where the most fun content is only available for a small group of players. Even WoW had to implement LFR…

Oh whoops, I totally missed that it was a reply to someone else, haha, I think I need more caffeine!

how many portals should a player be able to open and sizes?? @scrufola

Depends on how many portals you want.
Everyone can sustain some small 2 conduit portals when joining a hunt once a month.
There are enough portal hubs to use and I doubt that all of them will go extinct due to price increase.

Well I have around 20 so far that I run myself and half are 18 block iirc, I collect all my oort also so not worried about price increase

We will never be able to agree on that, personally I think the more the better because essence of the game. And at the moment the advantage of portals is monopolized by a few hubs networks.

A portal to TNT can cost up to 6 shards per hour. If Oort rises to 1000c that would be 72000c per week. Of course, there are cheaper options but the more limiting a game is to me, the less I enjoy it.

oh i was just curious on the amount people want.
I myself dont have any portals. i life close the the portal seekers hub :stuck_out_tongue:

i think there are a decent amount of networks, but if we get more then there will be a desire to have more portals too. if you have a busniss you want it very accesable. So from one side more networks give more options, it also increase the cost.

But my vision of portals clearly different from most people. not that i dislike the current way it is. its fine

Cap should be around 400c, anything over that is not sustainable long term.

i think if less people hunt price go up people will think ow its moment to hunt for those
and it will stabilize
unless the hunters get smart and start a syndicate

I had some for sale. Someone bought them within an hour or two of me posting. I’ve since added the rest of what I have, at the same 20c price.
There is 6,400 shards for sale. And I have another 1,250 that I’ll be adding in an hour or so.
This is just what I have from solo hunting, as I haven’t been on one of the big hunts in months.

Sweet shards…:heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

Now looking at my post again it might look like I didn’t want to believe you. That was not my intention, sorry. I just wanted to check how many shards you sell at that price and saw that the whole planet didn’t have any to sell. What you consider a “fair” price is apparently considered “a steal” by your customers. :slight_smile:
