so now we should have a LK kill , but the buff will help a bit with those Valkyr for sure as we head deeper into that phase as we may start to lose people. Or now we should be able to kill them all have no one dropping off the edge just need to get on top of the defile which really shoudlnt be to hard.
Well I've been dallying around with my language on this, like saying someone incurs GP, but it is clumsy. Whether gold or GP goes up or down, we are still penalised by it. We might as well say "spend" - people know what you mean because it is a common language construction, and it doesn't really matter for common usage anyway.
That's the mindset we need to get people out of. If you say spend it promotes that idea that you have earned something and now possess it and can then expend it--that's not the case. People try to compare it to DKP which you just cannot do, you EARN both. You SPEND nothing. I realize it's easier to say spend and not bother with it, but it's really a whole different level of distribution, one that you cannot compare to any other system that I've seen.
I know I know - I'm just saying our language isn't really suited to this system, and there aren't many words we can correctly use to describe its mundane process. "Earn" is a good word for referring to increasing EP but not for GP because it implies you did something to get it. You can't even use typical words like spend, debt, buy etc. I use "incur" because it's the only alternative I can think of that implies a penalty.
Technically it is a penalty. Just not in the negative way you generally assume when you think 'penalty'. Because one way or another, it means you're less likely to receive the next piece of loot in the near future. As your paladin will discover in the near future! Muahahaha
