This is going to be a pretty substantial blow to profitability of Voidwatch. 20k Cruor per kill for 6 kills was 300k gil (20*2.5*6), which probably more than you make from the rest of the drops of any Voidwatch monster on average. They've essentially cut the profitability of Voidwatch in half for people who would convert their cruor to gil.

Buy HMPs before the market figures it out.

So not only did they gimp blinkers but also teal/aurore/perle no longer sellable...so much for cruor > gil conversion.

Game needs it but the faucet is still turned on and gil is still flowing into the system at unimaginable rates with very little gil exiting the market by comparison. This should've been done a year ago.

Blinkers are now 67g each according to lsmate.

I saw this coming a while ago, RMT have been cruorburning and exploiting these like crazy lately and the value of gil has dropped to below winter-2005-inflation-era prices ($5-6/mil according to the latest brogame spam tells).

Welp, Not only did Dynamis just got more crowded. People that never cared about crafting may now be forced to seriously consider it. Let's see where this goes.

Good thing I blinkered all my cruor last night haha. Now all the Cells will probably drop in price because that seems to be the only way to make gil from your cruor now.

Look at Morta:
Heavy Metal Plate - 13.3% :: 95k on Lakshmi
Riftcinder - 4.1% :: 1mil on Lakshmi
Riftdross - 1.4% :: 400k on Lakshmi
Other crap - Lets say you get 3 and they average to 3k value
A. Pulse Cell - 0.013 : 5mil

~69k average per pop from items

Capped green (essentially always) : 22.5k Cruor

~57k average per pop from Cruor

I don't know how large a motivator gil was for people, but the gil potential of these monsters just dropped dramatically. Being able to pop off 12 Mortas in an hour just dropped from 1.5mil/hr to 800k/hr.

Someone just posted "if they havent nerfed blinkers yet, they aren't going to" in response to one of my posts (in the last month maybe?).

I wish I could recall where so I can read it again in the new context.

I love how hacked together the fix on the armor was, it still shows up as white instead of grayed out in the sell menu.

I thought about all the people who said it would never happen because they would have done something about it long ago. Yeeaaaaaah, about that....

Think they should have done it much sooner than they did, would have limited potential repercussions.

Kinda of a late nerf considering how long we all abused it, damage is already done.

Cruor only served for 4 purposes......

1.) Conversion to Gil (Superior)
2.) Brewing (Major)
3.) Voidwatch Atma Upgrade/Voidwatch Teleport Costs (Minor-Major)
4.) Day-to-Day Abyssea Expenses (Minor)

Now that our biggest reason for farming cruor is decimated, its now mostly good to brew and get around abyssea and vana'diel with or finish upgrading those favorite VW atmas.

Either way not too suprised with these changes, since SE is sooo concerned about Balance.

I don't know kind hard to take them seriously when WHM can convert now. lol Just my two cents.

And now there is basically no reason to do voidwatch. If you were honestly doing it for a damn coru or toci's or some ***, you were crazy.

To be honest, haks might take care of themselves. I wouldn't be surprised to see a fleet of ebisus appear, to the point where it's just not worth it to buy minnows.

Was nerfed because of RMT having been spamming blinkers to hell for the last few months, probably.
Been like 5-10 mules with sick names at these npcs more or less non-stop for many many weeks >_>
