    Is this a joke. Asking because I fail to see it as funny. Just because you don't see a need for particular buildings is not a reason for them to be removed from game. How would you like it if a PvP player asked for the removal of all buildings useless to the PvP part of the game.

    Not me who suggest them to be removed, just answering the one who suggests it that it would not be a big deal. By the way - this tread is not about removing buildings, but about if we need a building that makes beans
    So if I am as good at reading as you seem to be- you just suggested to remove the pvp buildings - wonder what will be left

    Back to topic
    I was trying to explain that the "magic" of the magic beans goes of when you no longer need them. Same goes for all other limited resources.
    The magic of the game also goes away when you no longer have a goal. if you are at level 75 and have lots of everything then what is left?

    So why make a building that speeds up the process? As long as you need beans the game and the loot from the ft adventures is actually much more interesting and the game more fun.

    Actually i wrote a few more wich would include mahogany and platinum Anyway my point is just beacuse you have alot of beans doesnt mean everyone else does. Im not against such a building by the simple fact it would be a personal choice to get them. If they introduce such a building and you think you are "swimming in beans" then dont get it simple as that. I would like such a building since i dont have that much beans and i have a slight craving for magnificent mansions. But everyone have different playstyles and i think more choices just makes the game more interresting.

    No it is not as simple as that. It would mean that you will get to the point where you dont need any beans sooner, and that is not a good thing for the game.
    As long as they are something you need they are "magic" and when you have goals and something you need to get, the game is much more fun.

    well thats more of a game design fault. Since you can get beans so early in the game and utilize them there shouuld be other things to get for higher level players. For example grout. Beans are mid level item and most mid level items can be manufactured when you reach high level.

    I think you will find that along with beans there is also tit ore, exo logs, salt, granite which are needed at those levels and at those levels only available via loot.

    Yes beans are a mid level item, now anyway. When they first where introduced they where a top level item and really hard to get.. But it only took a few month and most level 50 had everything they could get from beans. Its a bit harder these days to get them as loot doesn't drop weapons anymore, and there is more to spend beans and stalks on as we have more room on islands then those Mag. Res. is more desirable for more players.

    But it still doesn't make sense to have a building making resources that is used to buy items in merchant. That's type of resource should actually be much rarer than it is today.. Do a few VLT and swap spots and you have a good potion. And then never run castle unbuffed with less than *4.
