3. You begin to view combing as a valid money-making prospect.

4. You go to every clan town and city to buy a new Mudslinger to check for catastrophes- in case the first one you bought was wrong.

5. Valuing trade runs becomes a more widely accepted hobby than sitting around and chatting.

11. The newbie you created to do CPK trade runs suddenly has over 200 million trade points.

12. You have the inexplicable need to keep auction on at all times, and bid on things that have no use at all.

13. Risking life and limb to get healing staves no longer seems like that big of a deal - it's only a few million exp you'll need to get back to your current level.

14. You find yourself drawn to the smell of CPK but realize you no longer have stats because you sold all of your equipment to have more cash.

15. You waste thousands of gold pieces to beg townies to loan you money - "I'll pay you back - I swear!".
