<p>Thanks for the ninja nerf. Seriously. I just started my Peacock line, and I can't farm these things at 70.</p><p>Kinda cruel, tbh. heh.</p><p>Would be awesome if this was accidental. Euro servers don't have it, apparently. But yeah.</p>

<p>The rarest of them all is still tradeable.. Phar. The rest you can get in under an hour as body drops off the mobs. I just did this quest last week.</p>

probably cause bots were farming the runes down in Living Tombs and making loads of money from them.  making them no trade and no value takes them out of the market where the rare ones were being sold on the broker for crazy prices and the bulk of the rest of them were being sold to vendor for nice money.  Anyone doing the quest isnt seriously hurt by this.

<p>I love all the no-trade and LORE items that are in my shared bank, haahahahaahahaha.</p><p>Seriously there was no reason for this.</p><p>And they are not all that easy to get, some of them are very very difficult to get.  After weeks looking for one, I just bought it, then felt totally foolish for even looking since it was 29s on the broker.</p>

hm, maybe instead of no-trade, just Lore would have worked, since you could feasibly only hold one at a time, bar tossing them on the broker.   This would allow people to still buy them (more on the broker, the cheaper they go for), but disallow botters to sell back whole stacks of them.

Honestly, even just no-value would work because they couldn't farm them to vendor.

This change is total BS.  I farmed on my own toons these stupid runes and had put them on an alt to save them when I needed them.  I wasn't selling them or vendoring them!  I FARMED THEM! I EARNED THEM! Thanks SoE for hosing me.

<p>I am on the exchange server so perhaps its just my server but these things are trash loot on that server. You sell them for a few silver to the merchants and no one buys them on the broker that I know of because you can obtain the entire set with multiples along the way in 1-2 hours in LT, less if the area is grey to you. </p><p> Maybe I am missing something but....</p><p> On another note, I found this interesting. The only ones which have been marked "No Trade" are the new ones you get. All the ones I have in the bank are still marked as they were, I thought that odd.</p>
