    Just returned to the game after a nine-year absence, and I still have a few questions. Everyone on Atlantic has been great and numerous people have really helped. If you have bumped into someone using voice recognition with barely intelligible sentences, it was probably me! One person gave me a check for one million gold which was incredible, and another person help me find a house spot as soon as the trial account ended (10 by 8!) Several others have provided items that have really been helpful including a full LRC suit. So here are the additional Atlantic questions:

    1. Is there a specific location that the crafting guilds hang out? I noticed several guilds are easily found in New Haven hanging out at the bank, but I did not know if there are any main crafting ones and where they are.

    2. I have the 9th anniversary box, it comes with three tokens, one for a personal attendant, shadow decor, and crystal decor. Are these worth anything or should I just use them myself? Even though someone gave me a big lump of money quite a bit of that has gone into creating custom House and because I just started back, I thought it might be better to just use them for gold unless they are worth very little.

    3. If I upgrade to the Stygian Abyss, will that unlock all of the other expansions, especially the heartwood stuff?

    4. How easy is it to find people willing to trade equal size houses on this shard? The spot that I have is great but at some point I want to have a miner/lumberjack again so it would be nice to have a house sandwiched between mountains and forest. Not really a big deal right now just wondering.
    5. Finally, had to get the nifty message boards and lamppost for the front of a house?

    Thanks a bunch for all your help so for, again apologize for the voice recognition!

    1.) Sadly, crafting fell by the wayside for a long time and only recently rose again to full usefulness. As a result, the big crafting guild (UBB and the like) all slowly faded - but are hopefully on the rise again. Haven is probably your best bet!

    2a.) Personal Attendant = 500k to 2mil asking price in Luna
    2b.) Shadow Token = 350k to 1.5mil asking price in Luna
    2c.) Crystal Token = 500k to 1.5mil asking price in Luna

    3.) Since you already have the 9th anniversary with the shadow and crystal house sets, upgrading to SA will open all current game content.

    4.) Trading houses of equal size will probably cost you money to convince someone to go through the trouble to move and rebuild/deco. Unless you have that great beachfront location that they really want - and they have the location you really want. Just keep your eyes open and something in a good location will come available over time.

    5.) The Bulletin Boards are craftable (carpentry) so you can buy it from any player. There are several types of lamp-posts. The main type (street-corner type) are a stealable item from the Doom Dungeon and you have to complete a puzzle (takes 5 players to do it) so it is a bit challenging. There is also a Japanese style tower lantern that is stealable from the Yomatsu Mines. Either of these can be purchased from players - just ask around.

    Hope that help!

    Thanks for the replies,

    if anyone is interested in trading these tokens I would like to pick up a power scroll of Mage 120,have some gold as well. Also need an talisman of a inscription, I'm trying to do the library quest for because of the limitations the requirement to use voice recognition is very difficult for me to get the poison sacks. I have not a single one yet. I had thought maybe I would be able to do that quest and then donate to the library into getting a talisman, but I'm beginning to think that may be unlikely. It looks like I will be more of a crafter than anything else. Anybody else would like to chime in with other answers that would be great as well for just your two cents. Right now my primary goal is to raise inscription to the point that can create super slayer spell books (this is why mage 120 is needed also) so that I can sell those to fund my characters.

    Thanks a billion!

    I'll be around the house this evening - training Imbuing. If you want to make the run - head west out of Umbra along the road until it turns towards the north... instead of going north, head south to the lake shore. Follow the shoreline to the west until it turns to the south. Look for the Large Yew-Tree on the shore and my house is just west of there. I'll be on Tazar so look for the name tag.

    I can also meet you most anywhere - so if the run is a hassle, just let me know when/where to meet with an hour or so advance notice. I'll be around for the next four hours or so.
