# 1 Exposing the GOLD Farmers
07-23-2012, 04:56 AM
Well Master keys are 1.7-1.8 million EC and the Gold Farmers are making a killing. How you say, well let me break it down for you. If you buy a key @ $1.25 or a ten pack for $11.25 and sell it on the exchange for 1.7-1.8 EC.

So sell (10 key @ 1,700,000 = 17,000,000 EC) most all Gold Farmers sell STO EC @ $1.00 per million. Which means they are making around $5.00-8.00 profit for doing nothing.

I could care less its just a funny fun fact Cryptic is paying the farmers.


I have no issue with players playing exchange PVP because I do so myself and am pretty dam good at it too. I speaking of the gold farmers that sale EC for real money and how cryptic is enabling them. If anything they are cutting into players profits. So a easy solution to end REAL GOLD FARMERS in game.

This is where you guys at Cryptic should open them ears up. Make a currency exchange EC, Latinum, Dilithium , and ZEN all exchangeable. Wait!....Don't say well this will cut into your money grab because it will not cryptic people will buy zen from you to turn it into EC in order to buy high price stuff off the exchange. Its a three way win for us, the buyers and YOU CRYPTIC.....Think about it....and get back to me.

Sell?How you know they sell or not?Just because they spam the chat doesnt mean they sell.
People sell keys because they want to turn ZP into ec.If gold farmers would SELL everyone would stop buying keys .Also keys prices are set by demand on exchange not by Illuminati and ec farmers.

anyone listing a key under 1.7 or now looks like 1.8 they just buy it and repost it just as I do on most any market i want to take over. I sold 19 keys that i bought when the exchange was selling them for 1-1.2 million @ 1.6 and they were all purchase by the same person I will not say his name but he was a real PAL.

Any item bought in exchange should INSTANTLY bind

and remember folks "Gold farmers" are criminals
they want your credit card details or pay pal details so they can rob you

Honest men do not do this

I disagree with this but I can understand where you and others are coming from.

I was thinking on my walk in this morning that it;s been weeks since I;ve seen a zone chat spam for gold. I was wondering if they had just given up and moved onto a different game or....

I buy and sell masker keys quite often although it;s been awhile. I wish someone was paying me to play the game but they're not. Just a quick request to watch the generalization of who's doing farming. Thanks

I think that the whole Bind system should be removed all together (both pick up and equip). One of the reasons the prices are high is because of the rarity in the game. Add more volume and watch the prices drop. Look at the prices of the Mirror Universe ship, they are flooding the market and you can pick them up for under 1M, where the less common D'Kora is in the tens of millions.
