Why do Milletians Leave so Much Gold on da Ground?

in General Chat
Recently, over in another Dimension with «beings» who have been observing the «species» from the Wold/Land known as Erinn, was published in their circular known as «Alienogi Gazette» about an on-going trend that seems to have existed for as long as they have been observing when Milletians first starting showing up on Uladh (Tir Chonaill) and in Iria, and, amongst their reader-base, someone submitted a question : «Why do Milletians always seem to leave all of that Gold lying around everywhere ?»

Cultural Back-Ground Story : Over in the other-dimensionly «civilisation» where the «Alienogi Gazette» is read, they have something of an «advanced civilisation» where Gold is a highly valued resource used in their Science & Technology Productions, due to how well it «conducts Erg» for them (and in a sense works similarly to Alchemy to «run/charge/power up» a number of their «devices» ...such as for Transportation-Devices that some worlds might refer to as Levitation-Craft, Detection-Devices that operate similarly to L-Rods, etc., etc.), and it became a curious/popular «Trending» question lately. Hey, I am just the Messenger here, and I affirm that none of this came from any Swamp-Gas !

P.S. : Option # 8 is supposed to be...
«What...? Alienogi-Technology is used to Harvest the Gold That Milletians Do Not Pick Up [After a Certain Amount of Time Has Passed] ? So THAT'S where all of that Gold seems to be disappearing to ! O_O»

    I take hours to what is meant to take 5, or 10 mins, just to pick up gold in a dungeon or shadow mission. I also summon mini pets not for the buffs but the to pick up stuff.

    Hey, if people don't take the gold, more for the people that actually do pick it up.

    One reason why I solo. Drives me nuts when people leave huge luckies laying around but rush that dungeon so fast you feel like a jerk for waiting to pick it up.

    depends on numerous things. but ill talk about sms mainly because it would paint a good picture on why I leave gold on the ground sometimes.

    If its something like BFT2 ( battle for taillteann II) where im constantly moving to new location when a wave is defeated. Then no I don't pick it up, even with doll bags they would barely get a chance to pick up gold from the huge luckies before we move on the next wave. Now for things like SW (shadow wizard) where theres multiple waves before you have to advance to next location or offering/provo where you don't move at all ill use doll bags. Similar logic can be used for dungeons since a good chunk of rooms have three waves, sometimes just one. Even in those instances I sometimes just forget and go into auto-pilot of kill everything to finish said combat because thats the main reason I do these runs is to kill stuff and sometimes help someone kill stuff.

    Its been a long time (almost two years) since I've heard of people being butthurt because someone is picking up gold instead of speeding up the fighting, but thats just my experience. As someone already said more power to them if they want to pick up gold that I didn't bother to get at least it'll get used instead of disappearing lol.

    Well, exactly. I don't know how many times I've gone dungeoning with some random person who turns out to be a show-off, who takes all the kills and speed runs through it. I just let them go on their merry way, and clean up after them.

    Jokes aside, it's usually a combination of the first three poll options.

    Though I don't think I've ever been in such a rush to not pick up a Huge Lucky.

    Or heck, even a Big/Regular Lucky.

    I always pick up gold, and gold of others who refuse to.
    Their loss.. dummies.

    I used to pick up after him, back when I was such a clueless Milletian, that I thought I was actually going to get rich from doing that... fortunately, did not take me too long to figure that it was an extremely inefficient method of gaining gold, and I figure that anybody would consider doll-bags at him to be extremely inefficient.

    The ones who end up OP are the supporters that end up gathering all the drops.

    You just remember who they were then the next time they want to go dungeoning you politely decline. It then works out to be a copacetic division of labour as Mantis said.

    I will leave piles of 500g or hell even a handful of 1ks that my dolls don't pick up and want to catch up with the group I'll just leave them.

    But if I see some random lucky pile of gold on the ground you can bet I'm taking at least a few seconds to swipe up a few thousands before continuing on my way. I will never understand how some people don't think it's worth even taking a few piles from a huge lucky before moving on.

    Likely because they already have something up for sale with a massive price tag.

    Or they don't have "time" to pick them up :x

    If they pick up all their gold, they should be able to offset transaction fees.
