Cal: please put Talismans in treasure chests

    I've mentioned this before in other threads but I wanted to make a seperate post. Since ML recipes are now included in treasure chests, it makes sense to also include talismans. Heartwood is basically empty and the supply of crafting and other useful talismans has dried up on my home shard. Thanks.

    You could go and try your luck at heartwood on your own. Since the drop of prices for heartwood runic fletching kits ppl have stopped to script down there. I have yet to get my first of those kits.
    It doesnt takes much to do quests from there and there are even decent non-crafting quests (8 efreets or dread spiders for a large bag of treasures for example).
    I am somehow talisman addicted and i pick up every, that seems somewhat worthy to me:
    - summoners (specific ones ... i already got too many random creature summoners)
    - slayers (on average i have 3-4 slayers of each type at hand, but those are really seldom asked for)
    - crafting talismans with any bonus of 25 or above (those are the rarest ones and were never common)

    A funny story with those slayer talismans (only a few days old):
    There was one player on europe looking for a vermin slayer talisman via the general chat. (It seems like not everyone has realized that those are best choice for barracoon spawn and for the cavern of the discarded in the abyss.) First offer he got was for 1 million ... I nearly fell of my stool. When I slowly recovered, that player got a second offer for one for 700k.... I had to interfere and offered one for 75k. (Which sounds way more realistic to me, since i have 7 or 8 of them sitting in my chests for some time now.) Ppl called me a clown and suspected me to script in heartwood. Nonetheless I went to Luna with such a slayer in expectation to earn 75k. (And no ... i wasnt for a talisman with 'owned by no one', it was for a plain vermin slayer.) Guess what happened? That said player bought the 700k-talisman. My offer got fully ignored. (Thought another player jumped in and bought my talisman for 75k.)

    If they add talisman to chest, what would be the point of doing the quests? Runics are much too rare to be the only reward. Also the team wants crafting items to come from crafting sources. That is why crafting Power Scrolls are not available at Champion Spawns.

    The chests need some elven items for starters.

    There are no elven things in them.

    Least not in any of the ones I've done.

    And I see nothing wrong with adding Talismans to the chests.

    Talismans are not just crafting items. They have slayer talismans and other talismans that perform functions such as ward removal. If they want crafting items to come from crafting sources, as you say, why would they add the recipe scrolls?

    Not everyone has the time to sit there and grind out the quests. Then again not everyone wants to do treasure maps. At least we would have more options.

    While we're at it, lets add a chance for random runic hammers and saws at level 6?

    Nah things are way too compress already. For that matter do away with everything and put everything in one game system. Might as well just have 1 dungeon for all.
