The sad thing to learn from this is that as much as allakhazam hates gilbuyers, no one in game cares enough to do something about it. We all act like because you admit to gilbuying, that your whole game career is going to end, everyone is going to Blist you, and that you're going to get banned by SE. If this was the case, people wouldn't buy gil in the first place. The HNM community just doesn't give a s***.
I have no doubt that if I bought gil that this game would be more enjoyable for me. I'd be able to spend time that I use farming to craft, help people out, do quests, and level. My jobs would be higher, people would think of me as a nicer person and a better player (assuming I never told them of my gilbuying).
Without RMT i probably would have lost all my friends, as i would be farming alot.
So ironically true. People who buy gil seem like nicer people because they can help out thier LS more. Too bad they make life miserable for those who actually work for their gil.
So why havn't I bought gil, ever?
*I can say that I worked for everything that I own, not that it really matters to anyone. Most people in this game don't work for their gil, they just get a lucky drop or a rich friend quits and they're made. But at least I have my self respect, even if noone else respects me.
*I can't afford it. I have better things to spend my money on. With all the gil you've bought, youll have to eventually come to ponder whether it was all worth it in the end.
Just know though, you ARE hurting people by buying gil. Your setting an unreachable standard for gear and help that the legit members in your LS cannot match. Thanks to you and other gilbuyers, the standard for engame and XP armor has been risen to its limit, requiring haubergeon the like. I only wish that gilbuyers in game were treated the same as RTM, because they are just as bad.
