There is a non-refundable influence cost to raid. Any *intel* from the holding should also incur a non-refundable influence cost.

Just as a (perhaps) meaningless data point: I gather a lot, and would never sell any raw mats, not even a single piece of brimstone, regardless of the price people are offering for it. The time it takes me to gather it and what I (or my settlement) can use it for is worth WAY more than extra coin.

We are still supposed to want more players to join "our group" or at least "ally" to "our group" aren't we?

Absolutely, though there should also be mechanics pushing ambitious/ideologically-opposed characters to coalesce into oppositional groups, which should also want to grow in size. If too many benefits accrue from large alliances, then we'll wind up with one huge alliance ruling the map and not enough incentive/ability for anyone to break away.

Can anyone say Deities, alignment & factions?

I have lots of…
I am good on … But it seems there are very few T1 mats that don't exist in each corner of the map. Still trying to figure out what I am doing in game also so I might be a bit disorganized with all of this.

You can thank Bob for that. HUGE mistake when he decided he would reduce scarcity and spread mats all over the map when, in my humble opinion, he should have done the exact opposite. But hey, what do I know, I only play the game every day. (or at least I use to)
Interesting, so you're saying there a nights when the swamp is unattended? Good to know. smile

Pretty much always right now. I am super bored with the game currently. Maybe when enchanting kicks in it will draw me back?

Do I get an invite to those secret ballroom parties under Thornkeep now too? smile

Only if you know the secret knock… (It’s Up, Down, Double Left, simultaneously mash A, B, and the left trigger.)

CRAP! Where did they hide they *trigger* key??!!

I have lots of T1 Weapons and Armour in Corbenik's Vaults that I could use for trade, Or have a character make you something your looking for.
I am good on T1 weapons and gear, since I have been dying less. Seems I am going to be in perpetual need of Arrows, along with harvesting kits and possibly saddlebags.
My main thought early on was to see if I could have some fun gathering what is plentiful in one area and selling it in another area, basically doing the leg work and getting a change of scenery in the process.

There is another fallacy being articulated. That anyone who has been in the game since the start of early enrollment has vaults bursting to the seams with equipment, recipes and mats and are sitting upon multiple platinum pieces. Because it simply isn't true. I have played since the start of early enrollment an average of 10 to 15 hours of week and I have 10 characters. If I combined all their coin, I maybe…MAYBE have about a platinum piece combined. I am still missing recipes, still trying to clear gateways and barely have enough mats for my current crafting project. You talk about a need for a wealth distribution…. send some of it my way then, because my Adbar bank account and my vaults pale in comparison to other players who have time and the connections to jump on nearly EVERY Ninja escalation that comes along. I don't have the time or connections. I don't begrudge a player who can play more and gets in on most of the high playing escalations. But that is NOT everyone. Don't just assume because you may be sitting on piles of platinum coins that we all are.

This. I have two characters who have about 1.5 platinum each. If I could reliably find reasonably priced gear in an AH that was nearby, I would not have nearly that much. Those are the characters I use primarily for escalations. Otherwise all other chacters would be lucky to have 10 gold combined. I average 10 hours a week and I do try to participate in as many escalations as possible because that’s where the easy money is, but I’m certainly not rolling in the coin Scrooge McDuck style.

Ooooo, is this like when the candidates running for office release their tax returns?

I have been playing since month 1 and have amassed ~4 platinum pieces. I have probably spent about 75 gold on arrows, raw mats, potions etc over the course of that time too. Does this make me one of the Uber Rich? Do I get an invite to those secret ballroom parties under Thornkeep now too? smile

Marketstead is part of the once vast but slowly decaying Aeonian League Empire. Hangman's Hollow & Corvus Citadel have already been taken in under the Bandit Coalition banner and are now Oak Knoll and & Succinct Prime respectively. I would not be surprised if the rest of the AL settlements were shut down too…in fact I would be surprised if they weren't.
