Petition to Make Amber Auctionable

Dear Kingsisle -

Many, many players are getting extremely frustrated with the difficulty in obtaining Amber. I think that the easiest solution to much of this frustration would be to allow the Amber to be sold/bought in the Bazaar. If those who enjoy Gardening and have spare Amber would be allowed to sell it so that those who DESPERATELY need this amazingly rare reagent could buy it, you would see a major reduction in the complaints about how hard it is to obtain.

Please reconsider the decision to make this regent Gardening-only. While it was an interesting experiment, I think it did not enhance gameplay at all.

Sincerely,

I agree with this~ not because I enjoy crafting (I hate it) or gardening, but because I have received Amber in the past and would love to sell it, so someone who actually needs it can use it.

I agree - I have no plans of agonizing with crafting any more past the gear from Wintertusk and now that I have pretty much made all the school out fits I plan to sell off or trash when my gold is maxed, all my reagents and spare tables. I am doing the same with all my pet snacks - now that another level is added and I have even less chance of decent traits by adult it seems silly to waste my time on it. I do garden but only on one wizard and for fun - 2 plants tops. Sorta Spring cleaning in the Fall for me.

Lastly I have to clean out wizards since I am bouncing around and getting no where with one.

Agreed. And that Merle's Whisker thing too. I have both and can't do anything with them. And do not craft. It's unfair for those who need them, and those stuck with them. I should be able to sell them for a nice profit, like any other reagent.

Me too because even if amber is made auctionable, I really doubt anyone would be selling it to the bazaar.

Agreed. Making Amber actionable would make spells like deer knight, Catalan, and Handsome Famori a common thing. It wouldn't be something you can be envied for anymore.

I would support making it auctionable, as well as the amber dust and Merle's whiskers.
I have 64 KPs going, with about 35-40 elder harvests so far. Grand total of 1 amber received.
I could understand making this super hard to obtain, but if you are having it that way, then do not have it in a card pack. Bad enough you have to have almost finished the game to gain a rank 5 spell.
The benefits have really been tilted towards buying the packs. At least with a card pack spell you can use the spell for 4 or more worlds? Crafting you can use it for half of Avalon and PvP, which I do not do.

I really think they would -- if they don't craft, what else can they do with it except trash it. What a waste when people are so frustrated in trying to obtain it.

Here is my 2cents.

I would prefer the drops rates increased only.

BUT, I would LOVE to see Amber Dust and Merle's Whisker auctionable (At a higher price of 500 in bazaar = minimum of 1000, maximum of 10,000) That way there is still some rarity but not to much.

For the record, I am holding possibly the world record for no amber in a row.

As long as people will try to get it there is absolutely no reason for KI to improve the drop rate.

Great idea I garden first thing every time I play Wizard101 and some times I seem to get amber but I'm not a crafter (I already have good items) so I want to sell amber badly because it is no use just recieving a regent and leaving it in our back pack. Btw if KI agrees make it cost allot.
