Sword and Bored: Trade

The boss has been killed and the loot has been ninja’d, so what is a pickup group to do now? Split up, of course.

It’s funny how fast PUGs break apart after the boss is killed. But sometimes if you stick around for just a bit after downing the big bad, you can make some really good friends.

This marks the end of the latest story arc for Sword and Bored, I hope you’ve enjoyed it so far. We have had a lot of fun making them. And we hope that Mo’s adventures keep going for a long time. Now, on to this week’s comic…

I give muslim woman 10 for trolling. Thats exactly how I trolled noobs who were seeking help. You tell them “come, I have great item for you”. They waste 30 min to get to where you are. And then you’re like: “ooops, its BoP”. Hahaha. I start to like this comic. It gives nice instructions how to have fun in MMOs

Ha, so true.

I’m not at all a fan of the BoP concept, but I can see how some games do end up needing a few things to be BoP becasue of their entire design (uber raid drops for example). I just generally prefer games that have designs and economies which don’t have BoP beyond one or two very specialised instances and instead. Eve Online is a brilliant example. It doesn’t even have BoP, and the only BoEquip items are really more like consumables – Implants and Rigs are remarkably like ship skins in terms of how they work. So in Eve you can go out and farm the item drop yourself, or perhaps it’s something you can go and build yourself. Maybe you can buy it with lots of LPs. And ultimately there’ll be someone willing to sell it to you straight for phat ISK.

And what about the crafting, where every man and his dog can churn out all sorts of equipment lie some kind of factory?

I think that’s just as absurd as the gear progression you mention here.
We need story where Mo does that too :P

I’m betting that’s something that will come in future strips

I think that’s the point, and that’s also what makes the series so great.
All those little nuisances that you don really think much about.
