I’ve gotten quite a bit of email about the new castle and property popping up on Siege.
Apparently there is no current dupe bug on Siege. However when SuN was banned they handed out duped castle deeds like candy; the combination of that and the 10K gold giveaway a while back introduced enough gold into the economy (well that, and things like UDL owning Deceit since the shard began) for the amount of flagrant displays of wealth we’re seeing to be possible.
Also, bear in mind that the castle owner, Pucky of Tradespot makes 5% of every house sale he brokers. That adds up pretty quickly indeed.
And they laughed when I said the quickest route to wealth in Siege was as a merchant…
