CCP, REMOVE ARTIFICIAL CAP ON NOCXIUM PRICE (Pax Amarria)

Pax Amarria is an NPC-seeded good that you can refine for 6 nocxium and 2 isogen

Whenever nocxium exceeds about 535 isk per unit (given the relatively stable price for isogen) it becomes profitable to simply buy endless quantities of Pax Amarria from NPC sell orders, reprocess, and fill the orders

Basically, you can just buy Nocxium and Isogen for a fixed price from bottomless sell orders on the market



THIS UNDERCUTS MINING AS A PROFESSION



Over the past year, a small group of people have been buying and reprocessing massive amounts of Pax Amarria every time Noxcium buy orders go over about 535 isk per unit, and dumping the resulting minerals into the buy orders for a huge and easy profit

The result is that the price of Nocxium has remained artificially capped at about 535 isk per unit

PAX AMARRIA MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE MARKET.

I never understood why it was a reprocessable item in the first place.

I don't know, this sounds like Minmatar propaganda to me.

What kind of book is made from metals?

Now, more than ever, we need a dislike button.

They should just make NPC orders refresh once a day instead of refreshing instantaneously.

If you're going to be a bible basher, may as well have a bible worth bashing people with.

Unintentional effects to EVE market caused by poorly thought out material composition of NPC sold goods that can be reprocessed...

NEVER. HAPPENED. BEFORE.

I'm no wizard when it comes to stuff like this but if this is actually true then CCP needs to remove that option, asap.

Excellence is not a skill, it's an attitude.

Supporting this.
This is ****** thing in many ways:
1. Book from minerals used for spaceships???
2. I thought CCP wanted to remove all artificial caps???
3. Its just against all sendbox and player driven economy.

I would put this in exploit basket.
CCP - fix it.

Brothers and Sisters, is this what you really want? You are letting this OP remove your caps without consent? I do not support this thread, and will fight against its cause!

Imagine the trillions they made when the Noctis was first released, it had a very high Nox requirement and if I recall correctly Nox was over 1k for a bit. Damn near %100 profit for no work what so ever considering you can by the thing a jump or two from the Jita hub.

It's funny though how this thread keeps reinventing itself every time the nocx prices takes a little hike.
