    ...on Siege.

    Come one already, there is already enough blessed gear in the game...give us thieves a few more items to steal if the player isn't smart enough to protect themselves from us stealing their loot...grrrr.

    The tokens, yeah. let them be blessed. Once converted to items... *shrugs* Be careful.

    If I pay $30 dollars for something in Real life cash it better be a blessed token and the stuff that you get after the token is redeemed better be too. I don't know about others but I'm not in to spending my hard earned Real life cash so some thief can steal it and re sale it for Real life cash or In game cash. It doesn't matter if it's Seige or not.

    Actually if you divide 30 bucks by 11, you end up with each individual item being worth 2.73. We aren't talking about a big ticket item in real world cash...so yeah, they should be stolen. As Kelmo mentioned...the tokens...sure, they are blessed, I was more concerned about the individual items...la

    There are ways to transport items saftly on Siege. The "Siege Bless" option springs to mind. It is a context menu driven ability that you can use as often as you like. *thumbs nose at Rico*

    The cost doesn't matter, or the shard. If you want them you should have to go buy them like every one else.

    NO! It's available to anyone and people are spending RL $$ for it... make it blessed and keep it away from theives for heaven's sake.

    That's all we need... someone spends $30 and uses the Armor Engraving Tool once then it's stolen by a bloody thief!

    NO THANKS!!!

    Fallen Log - Deco item, does not matter much if it is blessed or not
    Lamp Post - Deco item, does not matter much if it is blessed or not
    Hitching Post - Deco item, does not matter much if it is blessed
    Armor Engraving Tool - This I think should be blessed as you may bring it to friends house to engrave their armor. As it is not a PvP item, blessing will be ok
    Earring of Protection - 2 resist is no big deal. I don't care if they are blessed or not.
    Ancestral Gravestone - Deco item, does not matter much if it is blessed or not
    Bulk Order Cover - as bunk books are blessed, I think this should be too
    Wooden Bookcase - Deco item, does not matter much if it is blessed or not
    Snow Tree - Deco item, does not matter much if it is blessed or not
    Maple Tree - Deco item, does not matter much if it is blessed or not
    Willow Tree - Deco item, does not matter much if it is blessed or not

    How offen will people run around with this items anyway?

    My Quiver is not blessed but I use it anyway. I had lost a few so far.
    Blessing won't stop me from using the ear rings if I need this 2 resist. I may not keep them for long but 2 resist is no big deal to lose

    They aren't yet. They were momentarily yesterday, but they got yanked...for now.

    I have seen the write ups on the items and was disappointed to see most of them blessed. IMO, there is no need for any item blessings on Siege...la

    As with everything else it seems.

    The items are, for the most part, deco. Why do you care if they are blessed or not? I personally feel that if I paid RL money for them, they SHOULD be blessed on Siege. If they are given to me as gifts by EA, then that's different.

    First off Aboo, what do you care? You play in the safety of Trammel, Siege is a far aay place with little to no concern for you. Last point, soon enough players won't have to spend rl money on these items since some players will sell the tokens for Siege gold, so now that this excuse is gone...what is your complaint?...la

  17. How little you know about other people. You might be surprised that while some people do prefer Trammel, they do have developed characters on Seige and have played there since the first day. I seem to recall Aboo is one of those, and perhaps you owe an apology.

    I thought I read that the earrings are unblessed on Siege.
     
  21. DHMagicMan_1

    DHMagicMan_1 Guest

    I understand that Siege has it's own rule set and and that blessed items can cause problems on Siege... but only if they have a significant impact on combat I would think.

    This stuff is fun, some of it has use like the BoD covers for collectors or the Armor Engraving Tools but in the end, other than the +2 resist, none of it has any impact on combat or PvP in any way. Yes +2 earrings can be neat but really I don't see them as being "Unbalancing" and since, as everyone else has pointed out, this stuff is all costing real $$ I don't see why any of it shouldn't be blessed on ANY shard, including Siege...

    Just my opinion...

    ...

    What reason do they have for NOT being blessed? (and NO, "so I can steal them" does not count when you are dealing with pay-for-play items directly from EA)

    The ONLY item that may be considered to NOT be blessed would be the earrings. Since the rest are not stat/item mod based items, they do not have any impact on PvP thus have no reason not to be blessed.

    Simple. It's Siege...it's not supposed to have an easy button like the production shards do. Siege should have nothing blessed, nothing...la

    People pay a sub to play the game. People pay for for a specific item? the 2 shouldnt be confused. And no I do not condone buying any items/gold in game all together be it ea or a slimy broker. but its still not right to offer an item for sale and allow it stealable on siege, not even felucia based pre aos PRS's do that.

    Even better just not offer them to the people on Seige. Then the Dev team wouldn't have to keep trying to put in new codes for things to keep one shard of people happy. Problem solved.

    Obviously you know very little about me and my playstyle don't you? I play LS AND I play Siege. In fact I was just pked 3 nights ago in Wind on Siege. Lost my bear headress, but oh well, I didn't pay RL money for it.

    When you know what you are talking about, then come back and talk to me.

    So how should the items that people buy with Siege gold be dealt with? I know people will purchase the tokens for rl money, then sell them in game for gold. The end user didn't pay for the items with real life money, thus those items should not be blessed using your logic...la
     
  34. Aboo

    Aboo Guest

    Because I own a house on LS my sister owns OUR home on Siege. Up the stairs on the right if MY room. We never say a need to have 2 houses on Siege. Stake it out sometime and see exactly how often I play Siege. Do you ever think things out before you spout stuff??? *sheesh*

    Any my opinion still stands, if you pay RL money for something it SHOULD be blessed on Siege. Otherwise you are encouraging people to NOT buy stuff for Siege.

    Me too so you could see how ridiculous your comments about my playstyle have been!

    I don't post often to a Siege threads because, in my opinion, when you choose to play Siege you choose to play by Siege rules. However, if the 11th Anniversary items are NOT blessed then that will directly affect whether I choose to buy any to have on Siege or not.

    You may have characters on Siege, but that doesn't change the fact that you play as a trammy...on any shard. No offense meant, but it is what it is. There are plenty of people on siege with the same mindset as you, and it's too bad they are starting to become the majority...just check out some of the community votes that have taken place over the last year...la
     
  39. Aboo

    Aboo Guest

    First I don't play as a "trammy" on any shard.

    So you are saying because I choose to divide my time between a shard that has a Felucca and Trammel facet AND Siege and that I don't play Siege exclusively I should have no say in what happens on Siege?

    You're going to be in for a very sparsely populated shard if that is the case. Then who are you going to steal from?

    Most of the people I have met on Siege have been most helpful and make me feel welcome to Siege even if I choose to also still play on LS. You are the exception.

    You play with a Trammy mindset. The fact that you disagree with the idea of removing blessings off Siege is my proof...la
     
  41. AHH... got it! I wondered how that worked! Anybody that disagrees with Sir La-Rico is a Trammy! How arrogant.

    ANYWAY... I think it's time to lock this thread since it's back and forth bickering now, and not on topic.

    Nope, please try again...and to get the thread back on topic.

    The devs should eliminate the blessings that the items carry once they have been changed from token format. As I have already shown, the idea that because you've paid rl money for them is a moot point. They were created with the ability to be traded away from the character that purchased them, so once they are purchased with in game gold, they should be a stealable item (on Siege). Personally, I don't care if they are blessed or unblessed on the production shards, since anyone will be able to insure the items anyway...la
     
  43. Aboo

    Aboo Guest

    As is usually the case with you, if someone disagrees with you then they are wrong. If someone chooses to play a different way than you, you insult them and they are wrong. You sound an awful lot like my husband.

    I disagree with you. If you are REQUIRED to pay RL money for something then it should be blessed, even on Siege. End of discussion for me.
