    5.0 Trade Pack and Cargo clarification

    Just curious if its true that all packs in 5.0 no longer have timers and also if cargo packs will have timers.

    Not a whole lot of information available on it.

    I didn't see anything about timers changing, and in the stream it was stated that specialty (local) packs are not changing at all.

    All packs still have timers, the only thing that is changing is that cargo is infinitely stocked and only goes to one location on each island in order to hand the cargo trade to whichever groups own the server.
    Epic Erenor Scepter - 856 Magic Att, 733 gimped DPS.
    Epic Erenor Katana - 815.3 DPS.
    Epic Erenor Bow - 693 DPS... worse than the gimped weapon even though it's a primary weapon.
    "Balance" . . . This doesn't even take in to account the 978.4 epic erenor nodachi, or 978 mAtt staff.

    indeed. sail overseas toward either solis or 2crown and give cargos to the zerg nation who will be there to give you a very warm welcome on your way in.

    Pretty much. I have no idea what XL is thinking. It seems like they keep saying they want to fix things but their actions nearly always do the exact opposite of their stated goals. It would be nice if we could hear why they think this is even remotely close to a good idea.

    If they wanted charcoal cheap and plentiful all they needed to do was get rid of the trash family quest and make the payouts at the exchanges higher. They could also actually put in some mechanics to help the lesser run packs that are needed at towers (similar to the sales, but give boosts for turning in things that are needed) rather than always nerfing the packs that are needed most while buffing the packs that pile up (once again, doing the opposite of what they say their goals are).

    this is just another way for PN's and pirates to get richer than they already are because you can bet they will be camping those locations just waiting for trade ships full of cargo to come in. So in most cases unless you have the full might of your guild backing you up on your trade run you can expect to get ganked on your way there. Its gonna be the old ''glory days'' of sea trade all over again, big risks but also big profits, if you manage to get there haha

    Except there aren't many big profits unless you take mainland cargo to DS. Which only large dominating groups can do. Yet again everyone else is fighting over the leftover scraps.

    It's interesting that the producers letter claims changes to trade packs but Socke said she saw no changes on the live stream. Maybe it was just referencing the timer changes we already have though.
