    5 mithril coins to travel to objective?

    Sorry if there's been a discussion on this. Lifes been busy and i havent been able to do much in game for last few months. When did they change using Mithril Coins from 1 to travel to an objective to 5? This makes me royally mad.

    It was changed when HD went live.

    Personally, I never use that feature anyway.

    yeah, only reason i do is because when i do get on i generally have limited time. so it greatly helped me get stuff done in the short time i did have. then they go and increase the cost 500%. like what is the deal

    AFAIK the 5 coin price only applies to highlvl quests, though it is still a steep pricing. Lower level quest still cost 1 MC to quicktravel to.

    It's only in HD areas that it's five per. Part of the reasoning behind the price increase is so that you'll not be tempted to fly from quest to quest (and potentially miss landscape quests that pop up only when you're in range) and thus won't get through with the quests in a very short time. The price increase encourages us to take our time and enjoy the scenery. For those that craft, you also potentially get more resources by riding to turn in a quest, assuming that you stop to gather the resource.

    So they are doing us a favor increasing the prices a 500%. Thanks Turbine!

    Quest resets in Frostbluff were also incresed from 1 to 5 MC, I loved it

    Ok, that is just wrong. I can understand why HD is 5 MC, but Frostbluff?

    I went by foot in HD last night. Boy, did I get a ton of hides and ore!

    The 5 coins is only for the current "new" quest line. When HD first came out, Western Rohan was 5 coins to travel to quest objective. Now it is only 1. Then West Gondor was new and it was 5 coins, now it is only 1. Same with Osgiliath. Now Minas Tirith are 5 coins.
    It was very helpful when leveling alts to have it only be 1 coin all the way up to current epic.

    I would never pay 1 MC to travel to an NPC, let alone 5.

    While people will pay for this, they will keep adding it, and putting the MC price up.

    If you want to avoid these mechanisms being added - don't use them and create demand when they are added.

    Buy fluff, and they will create fluff. Buy progression and they will as sure as nighttime comes each day - sell it.
