Most people in this thread seem unaware that there are plenty of good quality rock and wood inside town
We know the quality.
You don't have a lot of credibility for believing that we don't.
We know the quantity both now & then.
You don't have a lot of credibility for believing that there is plenty. The busier and healthier the town is, the less there is of these exact in-town resources to go around.
Meduli you can get 2-3 stacks of saburra in sprinting distance of the grinders, Bakti has a few of these too but less and unlike Meduli the guards don't reach the grinder/crusher (which honestly makes no sense why the town would not protect one of the hotspots for economic activity). I haven't really checked out Vadda or Moh-Ki
Yes, please: do stick to what you know.
Bakti's non-inlcusion of the nearby grinder & crusher (as you report it) makes as much sense as it ever did. Perhaps that area never was meant to be protected by the town guards. It never was.
f you really think about it...
" the cities ,towns, settlements, ect.. is where you would expect to find the majority of people.
At the end of the day we want players in the cities and towns. The more that is there the more populated and alive the world will feel."
And, the more folks will be outside of town gathering, chopping wood, mining, and sprinting / riding fast back to the guard zone.
Why do some folks hate it when population centers are population centers?
