Customer service in MMOGs leaves a lot to be desired. Normally you get a ticket, and you wait with ticket in mind, and your issue normally isn't resolved until your mind is lost. The petty bug that caused an item to disappear or quest reward isn't unheard of in EverQuest or World of Warcraft, but wh...

In general, it's simply not a great place to do your harvesting. However, there are a few redeeming qualities that may cause you to...

Ahh, Ered Luin. Not a bad harvesting zone, not really a good one either -- just average.
