    I have recently been talking to a few people that have started rare collecting and were interested in getting characters on different shards to do events. As opposed to making characters and suits and whatever on one shard and xferring them to the intended shard, I am creating this thread to help people avoid the transfer. Most event worthy characters don't take a whole lot to get going, no advance/mythic tokens are really needed with some decent skill increase jewels and just a small amount of training (aside from obvious templates like tamers). All that is really needed is a suit/weps/jewels.

    So, to the point- this thread is designed for people to state what crafting abilities they have, what shards they have those abilities on, and what shards they would be willing to accept payment for their crafting services.

    I will go 1st:

    I have smith/tailor/carp/fletch/tink/imbue on LA and ATL. My reforge ability on LA is very limited due to lack of runics, and my stone armor crafting is also currently weak on LA due to lack of granite. I will accept gold on ATL, LA, GL, LS, Napa.

    to be honest, you dont need a suit or skills at all if you just use 1 character. just ask Alexander :)

    @Alexander of ATL.

    lol while yes it can be frustrating to see someone naked with no skills do just as well as a repectfully geared and trained character, your a pro and i respect that :) And it does prove that you absolutely do not need gear to participate in EM events. Yes its a little harder, it does actually take a little bit of know-how to get noob char drops, but anyone can do it. there is no excuse, as you have proven for not being able to cross shard events :)

    Dregg told me how to do the no skill thing at events on other shards....But I am having hell with it. I have done this Sapphire Eye event like 4 times, got looting rights 3 of the 4 and not got the item yet. If your dead when the event ends...what happens to the item? Dregg told me that it will go in your bag when you rez..but I rezzed and it was gone. So I asked the EM and he told me it was on my body. Problem is at these events the bodies disappear at a super fast rate...so I coudln't loot all my bodies before they disappeared. They were hard to find as well. So anyway...im trying to get it figured out. I think im cursed tho...At the event where everyone gets the drop I still can't get it haha.

    if you die the drop goes to your first rez in pack. if you die right after the boss dies without insuring, item will be on your corpes. your best bet if you dieing when the boss is close to death is to just die. or if dead when boss is close to dieing just stay dead and make sure to rez in a safe place (with no fire or spawn) worst case scenerio use help stuck and rez in a town. if you have actually gotten the reward messege, drop will appear at any location after you rez.

    I have gotten the reward message twice...both times I rezzed and began to move death robes around and had nothing. The EM then told me that it was on the body that I died in before I got the drop. I felt like he was wrong....but oh well. I will get one eventually...but thats the main reason I want to work characters...so I wont have to deal with being dead every time I get a drop.

    strange. but yes the EM is wrong ive gotten that specific drop even on dead characters. is it possible you pack was full? if so it should go to bank box. events are buggy tho, like last night i got an ethy stuck in my backpack. so it wouldnt surprise me if it was some kind of bug. you are right, its easier to just make a geared character (word of advice tho, mages are very hit or miss, best bet is spellweaver with a focus, archery / thrower, or tamer)
