That was kind of my problem with the saronite ore situation: I was low-volume. I could circle Sholazar Basin for an hour or so and collect 2-4 stacks of saronite, depending on how many other people were mining at the same time. That was enough for me - farming any longer than an hour has always been mind-numbing boredom to me, so I was content to sell my 2-4 stacks/day and make 40-100/g a day. I was making enough gold for my modest needs in other ways, so this was just one part of my overall income. But then, out of nowhere, here came 3-4 people who were suddenly posting 30-50 stacks of saronite ore a day for 15g and less per stack. Considering these sellers had names like "Afjtyt" and "Jfbrofx", I really suspected botters/gold sellers. Of course, they may have been simply the kind of "disposable" bank alts mentioned in the article.In any case, I couldn't compete with sellers who had that much time on their hands to gather that much ore (or teams all funneling product to one bank alt, or botters, or whatever it was), and my time was worth more to me than what I was now able to get out of it, so I just quit mining. It was no longer worth it.
