    I feel so dirty and used (or, "Pimpin' ain't easy")

    Well, I've come to the determination that I am not, or ever will be, a "rich" player on bnet. Too many other demands on my time.

    So, I've resigned myself to a middle class lifestyle. Enough good gear to equip some classes and to have a good time.

    So, I started thinking up legit "get rich quick" schemes. MFing wasn't really getting me many items, I don't want to spend $25 on another CD key to rush myself through hell, and I was having problems unloading (and muling) the crud I did find.

    Then the idea hit me - hey, I've got a Tal Meteorb sorc, why not rush people in NM for the forge? The drops should be decent, should be quick (around 15-20 minutes), how hard could it be?

    From a gameplay perspective, it's easy as pie. Tele around, kill things quick, open TP, wash, rinse, repeat.

    From a rusher perspective - my God, could people get any dumber? I've always thought you'd have to be an idiot to pay your forge to get rushed, and I'm right. If the average Bnetter had the IQ of a tennis shoe, the rushed bnetters are the crud on the bottom of the shoe.

    It's not just the newbness, it's the lack of manners, typing and grammar skills, and social skills altogether. I've been called "retard" by the rushed (put an end to that rush in a hurry - WTF? Why on earth would you do that?), told to wait while they shop for LEET gear at anya, attempted forge thefts, begged for gear, the works. Wow.

    So far, I've netted some Lems, shaels, Ums, and Guls, plus a ton of pgems, so it's paying off somewhat. But man, it's trying my patience in a big way. And, I feel so dirty and used. Oh well.

    If the game isn't fun, don't expect L33t gear to make it fun. If anything, gear that is too powerfull makes the game too easy.

    Do what you find fun, don't worry about being wealthy.

    Why not trade organ sets? It's 10x better than mfing. It seems like a lot of people are still really hungup on this magic finding thing.

    I run organ sets. It's a good way to consistently get wealthy.

    I don't get that either. Can Gul drop in NM at all? Plus, I think it takes more than 15 min to do a NM rush.

    It dropped a gul for me, so guess it can!

    With an insight merc for endless mana, I can just tele around in a jiffy. Plus, no side quests, bosses only. The layouts aren't random, there's a finite number of "river of flame" layouts, for instance, to get to the forge.

    I've got several kinds of keys, but Nili hasn't dropped me one of his at all (I've tried). So I've got incomplete sets, but otherwise I would. Figured this would we something different for a while.

    As for fun, for me doing something different and challenging is fun - my end goal is to kill dclone and also get the ubers, so this is a means to the end. Or wait until ladder reset, whichever comes first.

    It's East softcore ladder, BTW.

    GULs definitely can't drop at NM hellforge, I was just joking :laugh:.

    Btw, just wondering, who the hell is that guy on your Avatar :scratch: ?

    If I could do hell, I wouldn't be whining about the noobs so much!

    Hmmm......99% sure I got the gul from the forge......Haven't ventured into hell for a while.....where would I have gotten the thing?

    Ahh! It was the hell forge, it's all a blur. Whoops! :idea:

    If getting rich means the game isn't fun, then be great by your own definition and let the assholes be rich.

    Have you tried other things apart from Mfing?
    I personally dont like Mfing, but I enjoy (as its been mentioned Keyrunning)
    Gold finding can be fun, and my friend says rewarding.
