How many accounts that have never had membership are looking to give out more than 25k at once?

Why would they be fucked...They can trade, they can receive anything.They just can't give away a lot which isn't really a large handicap I think...I do think it helps fight gold farmers though because they'll have to buy memberships now. :)

Any account thats created since the update will have these limitations I think.

Eh, hardly. If you think about it, in a years time, if that's still the case, a person with pretty high levels that created their account a year earlier would still be in effect of this, which is stupid. :)

tbh the most common way of gold farming is by killing green dragons. So I dont think this will change it much? "/

I was killing greenies today, it sucks for money now since there are no bots, takes way longer to get cash, its less than 500k per hour now =/

All money making methods are the same "/ Bots fucked them overBoss's and staking/pk are the only properly QUICK ways of making LARGE amounts of cash now.

I hate bosses coz you need a team and I don't like the extreme risk in pking and staking :PMerching is good money still, if you're good at it, that is. My friend makes like 10m per day with regular merching and item flipping and he doesnt even play that much.
