Alright, I'm probably going to get ragged hard af for this, but hear me out and just have an open mind to it. As it's a suggestion and nothing more.
We all know MBscape has been going off about the economy for a while now, but everyones constantly asking me how people make billions in GP when shops don't pay anything for your items.
Back in the day, when the economy wasn't """"bad"""" i still don't think it is tbh. The Gen stores used to buy items for street prices. Whether it be magics, coal, bandos, arma, etc. So you could sell your drops and still make a good profit (100's of mills) like you should be able to do.
Now instead of that, we're kinda forced to just hoard all our side drops (The ores, logs, etc), and strictly hope for that ONE good drop from the boss youre killing. Knowing it could take you 600+ kills to get. This I find is extremely de-motivating for most players as they come to an RSPS to easily grind and make money.
The only problem now, is since the general stores have been changed for so long, most players have an over abundance of items. Like 100,000+ magic logs, 100,000+ coal, etc. So if they we're to change the general stores back to how they used to be, the economy would truly be fucked.
Now here's my suggestion, and I'm suggesting it only to see how the community would feel about this as it's not a detrimental loss to our bank value.
If we could get the general stores to pay a good fair price for coal, mith ore, addy ore rune, logs, seeds, energies, gwd drops, etc etc etc etc. Would you be willing to sacrifice our skilling items?
Like if they got a list together prior to the update happening and it looked something like this:
Coal, Gold, Mith, Addy, Rune, Silver. Mithril bars.
Maple, Yew, Magic, Mahog, Teak, Oak Planks, Planks, Mahogany Planks.
Ranarr+, Yew, Magic, Palm.
Royal/black/red/blue/green dragon leather and dragon hide (cause theyre both tannable, which also opens up a slot to make tanning profitable for some newer players which would be kinda cool)
Raw Sharks, Cooked Sharks, Raw/Cooked Rocktails, Raw Mantarays, Sara brew flask (6), super restore flask (6)
Sara sword, arma pieces, bandos pieces, hilts, godsword shards
Pure ess, Rune arrow, Broad arrow, Mith arrow, Steel dart tips, Steel darts, Rune dart tips, Rune darts, Mith dart tips, Mith darts, Dragon dart tips, dragon darts, dragon arrowheads, dragon arrows, rune/mith arrow heads. Diamonds, Diamond bolt tips, Dragonstones, Dragonstone bolt tips.
NOW PLEASE TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THESE ARE ALL ITEMS I NOTICED I HAD BULK IN MY BANK. WHICH MEANS EVERYTHING LISTED (AND MORE IF SUGGESTED) WOULD BE REMOVED FROM EVERYONES BANKS, THAT WAY WE CAN CONTINUE OUR GRIND AND BE ABLE TO SELL OUR STUFF FOR A GOOD PROFIT WITHOUT DUMPING 100,000'S INTO GEN STORES AND GETTING BILLS OF GP AND RUINING ECO.
