Devs, More Items to Buy with Points

Discussion in 'UHall' started by RavenWinterHawk, Sep 5, 2011.

  1. So... I notice the turn in thingy is going pretty good on TC1.

    I think the point values for useless items is good. How else are you going to get rid of them in the game. The Devs made the point values perfect. There is no point to pack-rating something worth 5000 points. So it goes into the trash.


    I saw a problem with the rewards. The point values are either to low or you don't have enough higher point items like the bleue jewelry.

    You might want to consider adding more 100k point prizes, 150k point prizes 250k point prizes, 500k point prizes and a 1 million point prize.


    Id go with animated deco lock downs or something. Or any non balancing issue item. Maybe a mount.

    Why do this? Your going to end up with a lot less stuff in the game if you have us burn points on higher value items.


    Just a thought.
     
  2. Nice idea.

    I'd like to see a Camping skill tinder-made fire graphic added to the list that could be placed between 4 granite rocks or fallen logs so that we could sit around a simple campfire.
     
  4. Yep creative and cool.

    I am actually selling the high price turn in items for points for 60% of gold cost because I like vending.

    Sticking to my plan of selling when demand. But I noticed I had a lot of the stuff and the new stuff is fairly cheap. The goal of reducing in game items isn't quite met. A decrease yes but not great.

    Keep in mind I have 44 blue crystals. I could buy 22 item bless deeds but to be honest with insurance why would I even get 1. Besides they are going on vendors for 1.8 million. And they are selling. Good for merchants.

    More high end stuff for a gold sink and item sink is needed. IMO.

    I agree, there is a serious lack of new items to spend the points.

    I do hope there will be more rewards, the mage suit and the white armor suit is junk, got them last time. They just sit in a chest and collect dust, all my charactors have imbued suits that are far better.
     
  8. yep mine too.
    Now there are cheap knock offs.

    Id like even a wall torch that burns purple.
    A floor mat for the front of my door.

    Or things that get consumed and run out
    I hate funky dyes but Im not opposed to funky dyes that wear off.


    or better yet the wheel of 5000 points. You pay and spin and have a chance to get the rarer drops.

    Agreed.

    More choices = more points spent.

    agreed! seems well averaged and consistent. while selling at 50%, my only concern is being able to actually sell it all. it's all about the gold for me.
    aren't a lot of the items brittle? people will need spares. and Sooner is cool, already stocking/selling on vendors - let's get this party Goin'

    How are they selling already? Unless people are buying bless deeds on TC, and that would be a silly thing to do.

    People are probably selling the ones they've kept/bought over the years since they were first introduced to the game. 1.8 mil though? Is rather low I think.

    Quite low. Doubt they will sell bellow 5m-10m even after the pub. To sell them for 1.8 m before its even a sure bet that its going to be a new claimable item is beyond silly. Somethings amiss.

    I think RavenWinterHawk meant the blue crystals are selling for 1.8m, not the deeds.

    I'm very happy the Clean Up is finally here, it seems a fair amount of thought was given as to the items that we're able to turn in but the same cannot be said for the rewards.

    Why two lousy costumes? How about adding in the other Costumes? The Giant Toad and the other one that's so undesirable I can't even remember. Zombie? Skeleton? Gimme a break!:rant2::wall:

    How about a Skull & Crossbones Banner that can be placed on ships and homes?

    How about a Treasure Map book that functions like BOD Book?

    It took so long before Spring Clean Up was rolled out I was expecting that some thought, time and effort was put into the rewards. The fact that 50% or more of the rewards virtually identical to the last clean up event is extremely disappointing.

    Times must be really tough for the UO Dev Team, they must be running on a skeleton crew.

    That's it for the rewards?

    Really!?

    The Devs took so long in getting this Spring Clean Up out and this is what we get?

    Wow!:(

    solid suggestions. Have you seen the hundreds of scaffolds out on the market lately? It's obscene that people are willing to pay for something that is so heavily duped.

    Bang on the lolly!!!

    come on devs give us this deco and screw the dupers to hell and back!!!!
     
  23. a bit of math.
    I am selling blue crystals for 1.8 million or so. That gets you 25k points that would cost 2.5 million in gold.

    So people are buying crystals and saving 700k. Essentially I noticed they are willing to drop 3.6 million for 50k points to probably get ITEM BLESS DEED.

    As a merchant, I sell when in demand.
    Points are like a commodity. They are in demand now. I'd recommend selling.
     
  24. Your right sorry.
     
  25. I just saw an ITEM BLESS DEED for 3.8 million on atlantic. Looks like they are taking them out and selling them for fear of market flooding.

    Keep in mind dupes. That is where the hoard is coming from. Like val hammers.

    If that is the one I saw in Luna just east of the south gate, then I think it was 38 mil. Prices are dropping though. :)

    *wonders how many points IBDs are worth*
     
  28. Yep your right. My eyes saw the future price.
     
  29. 50,000 to buy and 0 on turn in I bet. Though be interesting if they could be turned in for more then you buy them for. *bug*

    Exactly. I'm surprised they added Item Bless deeds but not these items, especially a two story statue. I thought that one would be a given.

    How about for a lower point value than the Item Bless Deed, a Personal Bless Deed that could be claimed once per character and only if that character doesn't already have one?

    My second account missed out on those :(

    I'm not impressed with the rewards at all. The list makes it look like we're playing better homes and gardens and not UO.

    I agree. I like the jewelry set and the sorcer set for my tradespeople though. I can't even imagine what a 1m point item would be though.

    Agreed. I would have no problem coming up with a list of items, and a list of new craftables.

    How about a unicorn or other medieval style tapestries?
    Oriental carpets?
    House pets?
    Ingredients for imbuing?

    Plenty for me

    That turnin list has more items than I will get around to cleaning up before the event ends. I'm happy, don't need any more, my banks will be real clean next month.

    But if you like to complain, you could make out a list for the next cleanup event in a couple more years.

    No changes please for this event, that would just delay the publish.

    Yes and postpone the event to january 2012 :p

    I do agree that there couldve been a couple more items, and less of the old stuff, especially the old suits...

    It doesn't even need to be new pixel crack. How about:

    Forged metal tool
    Transfer tokens
    Soulstones
