    Uh, nope. It's been 1s for ages, unless you have the travel discount on your account and it's a bit less, but I don't remember exactly. But it was definitely not 6c. Also, swift travel is a convenience, not a necessity. Get on your own horse and go from one side of Bree to the other. It doesn't take that long.

    Come on, OP is clearly a satire of a rage quit post. A level 85 char like him can't sneeze without getting a gold for trash these days (much less the gold that you get for a BG run). But have to say, I'd give it a lowish grade as such...

    its been that price for a while and at 85 you shouldnt have any issue making gold before bg scaled i used to be happy to make 15g a day from killing trash mobs around the world for deeds since bg scaled i can make anything up to 750g a day from ah selling symbols crystals of remberance and starlits let alone the 5g you make per run frm the trash on the way to dourchest

    It is pretty hard to miss the satire here, but I guess it can be done.

    I think the travel discount is 60c, and he might have misread it as 6c. I could be wrong though; an erroneous explanation indeed. However, I think there isn't such a high inflation on LOTRO because of the fact people have so much money and that there are so many things that can be bought with gold. For what it's worth, the prices of items do not change, as opposed in real life. Thus, it's very easy to control inflation.

    I don't think swift travel across Bree was ever as low as 6c. Was that part of the satire?

    What I do remember is that when West-gate to South-gate travel was first introduced, it wasn't swift, you were supposed to ride across town --- and it was SO borked. The horse invariably hit some piece of landscape along the way and stopped, and you had to dismount. I think Turbine made it swift travel in self-defense, rather than trying to debug each tiny course change along the route.

    I think so, too. It was so over-the-top Al Gore would have got it.

    I guess I'm just slow today. Or perhaps a little jaded by all of the rage quit posts I've read over the last 6 years. Either way, totally missed it.

    I mean, someone has to be joking, right? A negative ding against reputation for trying to do a bit of tongue-in-cheek satire. Jeez, I'd hate of seen some of our community at a George Carlin concert..... No more satire for me...at least not here.

    The stable master has a wife and FOURTEEN kids to feed, plus a mother-in-law living with him, and an old Goblin injury that causes him pain so he has to pay through the nose for grog to ease his suffering. His favorite cow died of mad hobbit disease and his goat is sick! And you're going to complain over a few measly coins?

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

    I repped ya to off set that negative rep.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"

    I'm conflicted.

    6.5/10, i guess.

    Never really built up a good head of steam, no direction to the enraged narrative, laughing reveal at the end made the whole piece stumble.

    Then again, it got multiple bites, so it was nonetheless effective.
