:wiggle: Just after today's patch SOE brought test server POK to live and NPCs are selling good stuff for just 1p. That's why you get a message saying they are rolling back selected accounts.

SoE has announced they are rolling back all characters that bought or were traded the items:

This morning we had an error with the update that resulted in merchants, and subsequent items, in the Plane of Knowledge that should not have been appearing in the world. In order to address this we will be performing selective and aggressive rollbacks of certain characters throughout the day. There will be multiple phases and some characters may be subject to multiple adjustments. If you believe that you have been involved in any way (even indirectly) then please consider holding off your playtime until tomorrow. We apologize for the inconvenience and we are resolving this in the most complete way possible while minimizing the impact on the majority of the customers.

I never even heard a peep about this tonight until I had allready gained 5AA soloing, and was steamed at the idea of a full roll back that guildies were talking about later. Now that they have a resolution it leaves some prity heavy questions unanswered: does SoE backup before a patch, and how did PoK, of all zones, get the beta version swaped?

In all fairness.. They did not only post this on their website, but they made it the Server MOTD as well.

I realize alot of people probly don't read the Server MOTD, but Sony can't be held accountable for that.

I know people who spent 200+k on this stuff loading up all alts with tons of 1p (some was a bit more) stuff that sells for thousands of times this amount either directly or after tradeskills.

NPCs appeared in PoK that sold every high level farmed tradeskill item for a few silver each. Unlimited supply. Flawless rockhopper hides, Mettallic Drake Scales, foraged items, etc.

The MOTD was posted, I saw it, but in all reality why was it posted hours after their mistake? Why wasn't it posted immediately after they realized what was happening? I was rolled back twice. Yea, I did buy items off of the npc's that I then used for some tailoring skillups. I took the first roll back with a grain of salt. I was a tad ticked at it, because it was their mistake not mine but I realized that it probably had to be done. But then a second roll back? After I legitimately farmed for 3 hours? I never bought one item off of a vendor, nor anyone in the bazaar after that first roll back. Yet, I lost everything that I farmed. IMO, Sony dropped the ball. I think there was a much better way in handling this. There are people that did not buy or sell anything from these npc's that lost items that were won on raids, people that lost things they farmed, people that have lost their corpses with all of their equipment on it!! People that bought items from the npc's and then resold these items to vendors to make millions of plat should be rolled back no doubt about that, but sony has to do a better job on who they roll back. Lots of angry EQ'ers out there tonight!

It wasn't selling MDS. Just some other stuff.
