I made my first million Infamy last night. I remember my Heroes getting a million Influence back in the day. They were mid-20’s, had been miserly about enhancements, and even zoned out of missions a few times to sell so I wouldn’t miss any drops. And I needed that million so I could burn it on their first sets of SO’s. Without them, I was roadkill. Scrimp, save…it’ll be worth it.
My Mastermind dinged 16 late last night. And he made his million from just two drops. L’il bit different.
A few days ago, I looted one of the Kismet enhancements. I still have no clue how it works, despite 30 minutes on Google and an hour on the forums. For the most part, I saw no reason how it really would benefit me, so I looked it up on the AH, and saw that it sold for 200K to 1M inf, although none sold in the past two days. Wow. Hesitantly, I put mine up for 300k. Sold instantly. 300k for a level 15 enhancement. I took my inf, feeling like I’d robbed the bank and ran off. The next mission netted me one of the regeneration enhancements, again something I could use but not as well as others. This one seemed to sell from 500k to 2m. I threw it up for 700k and walked to bank some of my surplus salvage. Before I got to the bank, I got the message that it sold. I was now a millionaire. And like any recent millionaire, I decided to go shopping. It’s Brewster’s Millions time, baby!
A mere 500k later, my character was decked out. Wearing the best invention enhancements I could squeeze on him (level 19/20 stuff), he was sporting 2 different, complete, pet enhancement sets, 2 different, complete, range damage sets, the highest DO’s I could buy, and feeling somewhat silly. My power level was much higher than before, almost comically so. I went into a mission afterwards and mowed through the NPC’s. The one group of 5 oranges I pulled was a challenge, killing one of my minions, but otherwise the rest of my mission was a walk. I realize this won’t last, but it was fun while it lasted.
Should I have saved my inf as I did before? There are SO’s coming up soon I’d like to have, but they are so far off. I saw someone mentioning wings on sale for 14M, and by the time I got to the Market, they were gone. I have had no money issues, even with my wild spending habits. It seems like there is much more currency in the economy these days.
