I've been reading all over the forums complaints about not being able to find items they need. I understand the frustrations but I don't want to listen to whining anymore. I understand that my opinion is unpopular but we have an opportunity to make the economy the way we want it.
I'm trying to put together a linkshell of craftsmen who are interested in making some money. We only have a few more days until the release but if we can get a monopoly on hot items the masses will want we stand to make a pretty penny or two.
Crafting linkshells didn't work in FFXI and they might not work in FFXIV but I feel like if a group of entrepreneurs got together we might be able to guide the economy in our favor. Am I crazy? Will it work?
The answers are "definitely" and "I'm not sure". If what I'm saying strikes a chord then by all means look me up in Uldah on the Figaro server. If you want to see how my experiment is working follow my blog on the FFXIV players' website.
I just have a vision of a powerful, wealthy, influential merchant linkshell known all over Eorzea. It might take a few lunatics or visionaries to pull it off. The mission is to equip all of Eorzea with the finest threads available. I'll ask for your feedback on my lunacy and then do what I want anyway.
