    It makes perfect sense using magical thinking.

    DERP.

    I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.

    To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.

    Its stupid that mobs drop "grey" Shit  you just sell to a Vendor,just to fill up your bags..so you HAVE to go back to town to sell it.

    I would rather have less bag space/inventory space,and  see more meaningful things drop,for a player to pick up. and just have the mob drop currency equal to what kind of "grey" item they MITE have dropped.

    That way I could spend more time exploring all these worlds these devs are making then spending 40-60% of the time running back to town.

     Ezmode is what today's player wants!  Well, dropping as you call it is just the game's user interface presenting loot for you.  Back in the 70's when we ran DND games, if pig "dropped" a shirt, it wasn't that the pig was wearing the shirt or had it inside him or some such weak minded thinking but rather that it was something around him that the players would discover.  The shirt would have come from a passing person who died or something like it.  Ah, back when we had imagination...

    There are would be times in many mmo's that you would kill a 4 legged creature like a deer, or goat,  and yes 10 rats.  And the would drop coin and armor.  I used to tell myself you don't want to know where that rat had that helm stashed.

    From Diablo we have learned that a loot drop is like pressing a players pleasure button every time.  Maybe not for gray, but certainly for Green items.  This make the game addictive and fun, this is why Blizzard has the number of paying customers that it does.  No game forces you to loot every item that drops, I loot everything that drops and run back to town to sell, repair, and train.  If you don’t want to loot vendor trash, then don’t.  Leave it for some other player to pick up and get rich for their level.  You power on looting only “epic” gear and cash.  When you can’t afford to train, repair, or buy a mount; then ask yourself why they didn't incorporate some sort of money making mechanism so you could pay your expenses.  Another solution is to join a pick up group. You don’t have to loot, there is safety in numbers, and the XP will come faster.

    Vendor Trash, supporting game economies and fighting gold farmers for decades.

    I personally think the same people are those one who are buried in their own crap.  I like to farm in some games like open world pvp ones.  It adds a whole new level of excitement.  I made a lot of gold in AoC and Anarchy Online.  I used all the gold to get the best gear and then I sold the rest.  Made a nice living while those games were hot.

    Anywhoo I hope Elder scrolls has good pvp.
