    Default DEVS - Please put a mailbox in Korthos

    Sometimes new toons need a guild invite if they're not online. That is all. Thanks for your consideration.

    /signed

    and /signed for a bank.

    Korthos should also have an airship port to reflect its Eberron-wide fish exporting trading routes.

    There is no banks, nor airship, nor mailbox in Korthos to stop gold spammers.

    As it takes some time ( not that long ) to run all the quests to reach sunny Korthos and the Harbour it deters most if not all the gold spammers.
    ( who are not going to invest half an hour in throw able accounts, there's other games where they can spam from a new account in a matter of seconds. )

    So it's not going to happen, especially since once you've done the chain for Sunny Korthos once on a server you can bypass directly to harbour if you want with all your other characters.

    A bank, ship portal and a mailbox please. Or allow Pendant of time to automatically be in my pack when I TR. The run back and forth with no striders is only faster than a snail.

    I can go either way on mail and ship portal, but a bank would be the bees knees.

    No thanks not that I play there much any more but we don't need twinking really there or gold spammers or any of the other annoying things that adding a mailbox, guild portal or bank would do.

    Not having those things on Korthos has all but eliminated gold spam in this game.

    No way, I'm going back to that.

    2 seconds to the harbor and back. Gives you time to stretch out those legs after TR'ing.

    The arguments about preventing gold spamming are compelling to me.

    What about putting a mailbox, bank and airship access inside a new building on korthos and have it so that you can't enter that building until you get to sunnyside?

    I don't know of anyone who runs Korthos without going Sunnyside and hitting the bank first, except for first timers.

    In fact, it seems that putting "sunnysiders only" causes my LFM to fill up faster.

    Seriously. 1- hit the bank and pick up whatever ML 1-2 stuff is there.

    2- run through the ship for buffs

    3- buy components/scrolls/pots and run through korthos in an hour.

    In my opinion, the slight convenience in putting a Mailbox in Korthos would be outstripped by increasing the Plat Spam once again.

    I would have zero issues with a Bank NPC in the midst of Newbieville, but please not a Mailbox.

    Default No no no no no no no no no no no

    Korthos was SPECIFICALLY CREATED TO STOP PLAT SPAMMERS.

    IT HAS WORKED SPECTACULARLY.

    ALL OF US OLD TIMERS COMPLAINED ABOUT PLAT SPAMMERS. WE HAD A LINK TO REPORT PLAT SPAMMERS in the game.

    I do not want mail from plat spammers.

    I do not want tells from plat spammers.

    I do not want general chat channel messages from plat spammers.

    I do not want trade chat channel messages from plat spammers.

    The next question to ask yourself, why do you spend so much time on Korthos?

    I have no clue what you mean by plat/gold spammers. Are there people who offer free plat?

    My understanding was that Korthos was created to be a tutorial area.

    As for why people go to Korthos, for the Coin Lords favor, or because they TRed and start there - and they'll need the Coin Lords Favor

    I had no idea that Korthos was some sort of spammer isolating leper colony!

    Good to know. I can cop the lack of facilities in that case.

    There are people who farm up plat in games and sell it online for real world money. Websites where you can go and pay X dollars per 100K platinum. Most online games frown on it, and specifically warn against selling or purchasing in game goods/currency for real world money.

    Besides being against the TOS, these "plat farmers" will often spam mailboxes looking for people to buy their product. If you hate email spam, you haven't seen anything until you've had plat farmers spam you.

    Why would we want the devs to bother with that when it's just as easy (and faster than donig all the quests to get in) for a new or tr toon to take a second and go to the harbor and back? There is zero difference between sunny and snowy side, no advantage to being in either one, and toons lose nothing for it. I don't think anyone is in Korthos so long they will get more than one or two mails, but I have been known to be wrong before.
