    These will end up very common. Last shard I did with a pretty basic newb character and I got 11 of them. If you want one from there (think it was Baja) pm me and I'll give you one there.

    Unlike the first event, this one seem to have multiple mobs that drop the crystal. Not sure if the number per shard is the same, but you can get a crystal for each mob on the same character.

    there was a thread posted a few days ago where we talked about how many of these will drop. significantly more than the 1st one, and there are a ton of the first one. these ones wont be worth more than 50-100k by the end of this

    for this event you don't need to multibox to get the drops. i was dead for 1/2 of the event on sonoma and still managed to get multiple rubies. at one point i even got a message telling me i would get a ruby in my pack after i was rez'ed (i guess my GD was still kicking butt while i was looking for a rez). the drop notification was a nice touch by the dev team.

    I agree that there will be a lot. However, I doubt they will drop to 100k. I've not sold any, instead offering to trade for random stuff like aos clothing or exceptional items, but they are still em event drops that are neat deco (the sound is fun) that were only available at a specific time. I know several people who couldn't make their shard event, and unlike a lot of folks here, there is a large group of players who do not have access to shard shields. I DO think it is unfortunate that players have paid several million gold for these. For trade purposes I am treating them as 500k to 1 mil items, though I've given away one to a friend who has helped me a lot on Legends and made a second legends player an open offer of trade for whatever extra they have that fits my deco. I think that is a lot more fair than 10 mil, but a lot better than 50k. Anyone who wants to sell theirs for 50k on Legends I'll buy in a heartbeat.

    i am comparing them to the dawn statues, which was also a global event and there are many out there and that is about what they sell for. granted it was a clicky, but was only available for a while on each shard and 1 per character, but with this event some people are getting 10-20 at each event per character they use and we all know a good amount of players use multiple characters at events. the dawn statue graphic is also unique, unlike this. let the dust settle after these events and this gem in particular won't be worth much at all.

    I'm curious how much multiboxing was an issue at these events though. I admit maybe I don't fully understand it, but I thought multibox was where a person with multiple accounts waited till the Big Boss appeared and then had all their toons aggro, breaking party before the boss died. If that is correct, the setup of this event really worked against that. First, the death maze separated groups out and also made it difficult to target / work around the corrupted souls. Second, each soul dropped relatively quickly, so it seems like it would be difficult to get more than one toon targeting a soul before death. Again though, I might just be unclear on this aspect. Even playing one toon, I still died three times, so I don't see how a person would be able to keep multiple toons alive. If anyone was able to use two our more toons successfully to increase their drops at this event I would be interested to hear how they pulled it off.

    multiboxing (often confused with legitimate multiclienting) is controlling multiple characters with 1 set of keystrokes using a third party program. if you had a 5 thrower multibox group i dont see how this setup would have deterred anything. stam pot all at once or divine fury all at once to get thru blocks. target mob all at once. Same concept as any usual event.

    it did deter legitimate multi-clienting a tiny bit because of the difficulty moving around.

    Ok, I gotcha. Yes I was confusing the two then. So in multiboxing, if I had four archers and I bandaged one, then the other three automatically bandaged? If they move the same and target the same then I could see how that would not have been affected by the maze. Seems like one way to stop that is to have the gate to the dungeon randomly drop players in one of several starting points. With mobs. That wouldn't affect players focusing on one toon, but players trying to manage five different ones with at least several in different locations would be challenged to keep up. But whatever, I haven't logged in for several days and I'm going back to laying on the beach now. Thanks for settingr me straight on the multibox issue, I've mixed that up before.

    intresting idea about the gate, not sure if its possible but yes if the EMs could do that it would be nice.

    When I was playing WOW there was a multiboxer guy that ran like 50 accounts at once and streamed it. He would fly to the opposite factions major citys and kill everyone. He was unstoppable....some were healing and some were auto targeting people....He had it down. So after seeing that in action...It is probably easy for someone to go with multiple characters and not miss a beat. I do think if they had more than just a couple characters it would be noticeable.

    wanna see some real scripting in wow? up in netherstorm at the arcatraz instance, there are constantly level 60-62 paladins flying in and out of it. people have bots running many accounts just running the paladins through there looting everything and collecting gold. this was a huge source of a lot of gold made in the game and then sold for cash, people made a lot of money at this.
