Does this have precedence?
I mean, granting "legendary battle" thingie over big battles?

am I spoiling things when I tell you that the battle was with an account he actually (perma)sits himself?




Not so legendary battle imo. though it's still pretty amazing the numbers he brought into field

I guess that's one way to bring attention to an alliance profile...

You're not spoiling anything. In fact, go ahead and create such a massive battle and you, too, will leave a bloody mark on the map for all time! lol

It is a permanent monument, so no one can put a city there.

I gave ditto several million spears and beer in the past for that attack, should there not be a monument for my trading prowess...

As significant as the number 1m is, controlling both sides rather deflates the achievement, as the battle was "designed" rather than PvP with all the unknowns that entails.

giving away several million spears and beer should be counted as trading prowess? i begin to appreciate why Lyken's trade rank precedes yours.

Lykens no trader, lol. He sells silversteel and has half the crowfed exclusively buying only from him. Keep up the trolling though.

I'm an active Crowfed trader, and I've never heard of any exclusive contract with Lyken. 99% of my trade transactions involve Illyriad players from non-Crow alliances.

I would be fascinated to know if he's actually selling Silversteel at a rate high enough to account for his huge trade rank. After all, the mines only yield so much Silversteel per day.


Posted By: Rill

Silversteel mines have 1000 units and a harvest time of 1 hour (or possibly 2, can't remember exactly).  Due to limitations on the number of miners guilds in a city, it's probably only realistic to have 700 or so miners, and if you had an actual life you might be able to harvest 5 times a day at the most.  So, 3500 silversteel at 25k apiece (assuming you sell all you harvest) is 87,500,000 per day or 31,500,000,000 per year, which is slightly more than Lyken's total trade score.

So basically if Lyken only had one silversteel mine (he has two) and only sold silversteel, his trade score would indicate that he is slacking, given that silversteel used to be worth a lot more.

That's not intended as a criticism -- I wouldn't want to "own" a silversteel mine, as these figures indicate it's far too much work.
