    You edited your post because you felt it was rude, and yet thought it a good idea to leave in the fact that you are basically threatening to turn to Third Party Programs to solve your issues in your post even though that is an action not only against the ToS but that can easily result in a ban? I hate fish botters as much as the next guy, I hate the effect I feel they have on the economy, I hate the people I know who do it because they think that since so many others do it that it makes it ok, but saying what you are is not only foolish, but also potentially damaging to not only your argument but your account as well.

    Fish botting is rather slow gil like 100k/hr and that requires active participation of that character and an ebisu and fighting for bait. Back before it was nerf cruor pt botting a good 700k/hr per character in allaince with only a couple of them actually doing anything. Plus wouldn't have to go back to town as much. A dynamis or salvage run nets over a million with anyone who has meh gear like eminent. Alternately you could make gil probably even faster than namis doing RoE for pluton.

    I think a better solution to this problem would be to revitalize voidwatch somehow or to introduce Heavy Metal plates as a drop into some sort of adoulin content. The prices of plates on Odin are insane and higher than I can ever remember them being, and are still getting snatched up instantly. Making emps desirable again but not really adding much incentive to go back to do things that drop plates wasn't a very well thought-out decision

    cluster cost 20k, most VWNMs that drop heavy metal are 3-4 man-able with caped light and juts 1 or 2 cluster (MNK SCH/RDM BLM/WHM BRD/NIN). The junk you get from chest largely pays off for the price of cluseters.

    HMP have never been so easy to farm, and rfitcinder / dross as well. Also if you think paying cluster 20k is a lot of money stop making an R/M/E weapon and just get the free ilvl 119 one whihc are alomost as good...

    So if I want to upgrade my Empyrean I can go solo about 3000 Qilin over the course of approximately 180 Hours playtime if I'm lucky, right.
