So a few days ago I went to repair my undies and I saw that my saw was grossly damaged at 38%. I was curious as to how much it would cost so I selected it and I swear it was 31k. Today I decided to just pay it, but it was only 13k to repair. Did I just transpose the numbers in my head or did repair costs get drastically reduced during the last maintenance?

This will happen sometimes. No idea what the cause is.

Silent patch ?

I've heard from other players about "things seem different", ie less lag. I swapped some stuff with my retainer earlier, and it did seem more responsive than usual.

They seem to be doing adjustments behind the scenes. Other things have been adjusted as well and they don't mention it like the adjustment to HP that lowers it sometimes when Ranking up.

That always smelled like bad coding instead of a stealth adjustment, since it was happening even during early beta.

That's true, but I like to give the benefit of the doubt. If you just accept all the bugs/glitches are "features" things are so much better and less stressful.

Sorry I missread your post. I was trying to figure out what you had done to your undies that they want 31k to clean and fix it.

Remember the days when using a choco at a crag would be a random cost 200gil here then 10 min later 1K then an hr laster 200gil? I wonder if the repair NPC is the same. The more that use it the higher the costs get.

The Choco prices were based on how many people had one rented from that area though. So it went up big time during peak hours or if a NM was going to pop or if there was an event scheduled somewhere....

Shame they are taking away the wear on underwear in the next patch... while annoying, having to carry a spare set of clean undies is hilarious :D (Or have some dirty old guy do it for you...)

This reminds me of when Aht Urhgan came out. I remember having to pay 4 figure gil prices to rent chocobo because everybody wanted to take the ferry to the new land.

haha

Those are some good memories. =)

Sorry for the derail, but can I ask where you guys are getting your rather fetching character bio signatures from?

Made me lol so hard. XD I read the same thing at first until I spotted the saw piece. But whatever it was I can bet not even a master crafter itself would touch those beasties!
