    An while we`re at it:
    I like the ideas about all these turn-ins
    Not sure if its meant to be permanent. If it is - Good
    If not - Not good... This game needs more redundancy !!!!

    Seeing the turn-in for mibs and sos I was just thinking about loggin in to do some fishing - Havent been online for a few weeks now...
    Then I remembered how crappy the 2 clients are...
    2D - no comment
    KR - to buggy still

    This is no fun like this :(
    If I had legacy 3D I would have gone fishing now definatley, but not like this...
    Still hoping something will happen client-wise untill my account runs out...~50 days left..

    I hope that the MIB's/SOS will give decent number of points I have a hundred or so, I just kept dumping them in chests and forgetting about them. They are such a pain to fish up and don't give worth while loot. I was really after white pearl they where just an afterthought. Here's cross my fingers for a good number of points.

    Sweeeeeet! What a great list of new turn-in rewards! (BAMBOO! Wai wai wai wai wai wai wai!)

    I'll be really keen to see how many points these new turn-in items are worth. :) On the upside, I have two crates of holiday items cluttering up my house; on the downside, I'd hate-hate-hate to discover that if I'd just waited, those two crates could have gotten me a set of Knight armor and I wouldn't have had to sacrifice any rubble... ahhhhh, it's amazing how many ways you can get an ulcer just playing a game. ;)

    Jeremy, thank you very much for giving us a list of turn-ins and rewards! I'll spend part of this weekend sorting through my stuff and getting ready, heehee!

    I'm glad some people have learned from past mistakes and are offering rewards that no longer unbalance combat.

    Keep up the good work.

    *Goes on a MAJOR shopping spree*

    Yes thats me running around GL buying every cheap martie, holiday wreath and reindeer deed I can find.
    Finds : 50 Holiday Wreaths and Misletoe for 600gp each
    Berkerker Maul Doom Arty 15k (3 of them)
    Valentines Day Cards 75gp
    110 PowerScrolls 1k
    115 PowerScrolls 10k


    And Devs? There is ALREADY A TURN IN FOR TMAPS? Why have another one? The library collection takes them - completed or non-completed.

    Great timing, I was just about to unload about 500 of those fishing items on a vendor real cheap. Glad I procrastinated.
     
  10. DVI

    DVI Guest

    While I like the new turn-ins I'm dissapointed the Devs have chosen some rewards that already exist as rare items such as the fire pit, the yucca tree and specifically the bird nest with eggs which is a very very rare item and very difficult to obtain.

    but such is life, it should be interesting to see what else is added.
     
  11. Does "Artifacts" include set pieces I wonder...?
     
  12. Evilminion

    Evilminion Guest

    *also does a panicked shopping spree, and returns home laden with about 200 cheap fishing nets, marties, and low-end powerscrolls*

    Looks like somebody beat me to all the leftover holiday stuff on Lake Austin, though, heehee! The usual snowman vendors were completely empty! :D

    I'll tell you, if nothing else, this turn-in should remove some of the longstanding holiday vendors from our landscape, and that's a goooooooood thing.
     
  13. Evilminion

    Evilminion Guest

    Or stealables that say "artifact", for that matter? I'll admit I wouldn't mind turning in some of the braziers and skull candles I have sitting around the house.

    Joyous2K Guest

    I can get rid of a lot of crap now, thanks. I hope all arties are listed as turn-ins. Even the ones you forgot about. Bye bye tmaps, bye bye grobu fur!! Yes!!

    Will the previous rewards still be available?

    Are bug fixes for both clients? Specifically "Dragon Frame" trade of a greater dragon.

    Please devise a way to make trade ins do less clicking. Have the tickets stack and sum or something.

    Add more turn ins. Ninja badges comes tom ind for me.

    oh yea and what about the obsidian items from the controllers arent those turnin items???

    Aye, I realise that, but its the matter of the graphic, if they look the same you can not distinguish without highlighting it.

    Maybe... we should consider changing the name of the whole thing....

    I mean technically this is like, 1 on Friday. It does have some decent information but it also had a question with no answers and a question with a 'soon' and.. that's it.

    Should we really call it the Five on Friday when there is rarely even Five?

    Birds nest with egg was considered one of the highest end of the server birth rares. It was obtainable when T2A first opened up on certain shards.

    Please give it at least a differnt hue or enlarge it or something or give it a differnt name.
     
  21. Gwendar-SP

    Gwendar-SP Guest

    Some of my questions are:

    How long with the turn in run for?
    Will the items from phase 1 be able to be turned in during phase 2?
    Will the points from phase 1 apply to phase 2?

    And here are some of the house decorations and other items you'll be able to collect as rewards


    It says some so I'm assuming there is more to the list.

    Maybe make the eggs in it blue instead of white
     
  24. Kebet

    Kebet Guest

    I am not sure I like the idea of including powerscrolls as a turn in..especially the 110's which are usually the ones that people give to new players or that new players can buy for themselves. Hopefully this is a limited time turn-in and not a permanent thing like the library collection??

    I love the virtue tiles though! :)

    All I can say is I'm THRILLED with both turn ins and rewards...omg the space

    I am thrilled too. I think they did an awesome job picking stuff for this turn in. I just hope I have enough points I want at least one of everything they listed so far. :thumbup1:

    ...

    Two things... one a question, the other a pondering...

    1. Can people who have Grandfathered housing resize their house WITHOUT condemning other houses this time?

    2. I'm beginning to wonder with the level of items that are going to be able to be turned in, and some of the hints being dropped about upcoming changes.. I wonder if they are setting up ways for current (AOS) items to be cycled out of the game so that introducing newer items and maybe revamping the item system is more easily accepted. I've been trying to put the pieces that the devs are giving us together in this regard. I know it took a few changes with resource allocation, Bag of Sending changes and whatnot to determine that they were making changes to the incoming resources to the game as a whole, I wonder if these turn-ins are not along the same lines.

    Trebr Drab Guest

    I don't have one or anything, but I've always felt that a true rare system was something that really adds to this game. I hope you folks at UO not only protect really rare items like this, but add a few more into the game from time to time. Even one time spawns of unique things would be great. Give this game world some truelly special items.

    I'd love to see a beautiful set of gemstones, maybe even with some special magical property like glowing or musical, and make them special.
    How about a set of dated wines? (And special cheezes?)
    How about bejeweled items for collections, like staves, rods, goblets, etc.

    I really like some of these turn-ins, they're great. (And I agree on the direction that doesn't add unbalance.)

    I am wondering the same. If it is possible, can houses that are currently illegally placed (in guard zones for instance) be expanded?

    Nothing there appeals to me :thumbdown: I understand not putting anything imbalanced in there, but they sure could've added something useful that's not deco.

    I'll probably go for the luck bracelet and ring as long as they aren't worse than what can be looted. But something tells me they'll just be 75 luck a piece with a couple other low mods.

    Its only "some" of the rewards and turn-in listed.



    It says also : "a small preview"

    Add the new turn in rewards for the newer turn in. Like the shirts and sashes.

    I have to honestly say if Pub 53 is the reason for the silent Dev Team...
    then I am glad they were gagged...I see alot of awesome fixes and I
    have already said the turn ins and rewards are killer also. Can hardly wait for
    the entire list of Publish 53 to be posted. Kudos to the team!!!!!!!:thumbup1::thumbup1:
     
  38. DarkVoid

    DarkVoid Guest

    These are all great turn ins. I have a castle load of stuff I'll probably turn in when the publish goes live.

    I wonder if the gifts section will be including the following which I have way too many of:

    Holiday wreath deeds.
    Holiday Xmas tree deeds - how many xmas tree deeds do I really need?
    Mini house deeds. I have a bunch left over and it seems most are from IDOCs.

    And if some turn in section could include jewelry that's not an artifact I'd be grateful if it would give points. I'm wondering though if it could give a scalable points based value, returning more points for bracelets loaded with properties, mismatched or not.

    I have a TON of junk jewelry most of it with mismatched or unmatched properties. Like a bracelet with both necromancy and chivalry, or two skills which are totally unrelated to each other, or they just have good properties mixed with one or more crap properties.

    I don't care if I have to feed it to the turn in NPC a piece at a time or a bag at a time, but I would of course prefer it if I could turn it in a bag or container at a time and maybe receive some extra reward point(s) for the container.

    Speaking of which there are plenty of shipwreck, named paragon and gift containers out there, maybe you could add in points values for each one, as long as it can count up points for 125 items without too much of a delay while it figures the points out for the tickets. Maybe there could be a command to activate counting of points, if you don't activate the command, your items get handed back to whatever pet or player pack they were in.

    Finally, please don't forget the more common aquarium rewards!! I've got plenty of those to turn in too!

    Cheers ...

    The inclusion of SOSs makes me a bit sad I haven't been out fishing as much. But then I would have been out stocking up on SOSs had the SOSs themselves been worth it.

    "Snake Skin Boots will no longer say Oak."

    As a Dutch player, I have to say I really liked having my own pair of wooden shoes.

    Bah.

    Otherwise, good list. There are a couple of new reward items that I actually want. I just wonder if the lucky jewelery has any other bonusses (but honestly, I have to get them anyway to complete my lucky set). Time will tell.
     
  42. Ash

    Ash Guest

    hahaha let me do happy dance that I can finally get rid of a bunch of arctic death dealers, hopefully stupid gold bricks, woo hoo no more cavorting clubs.. not to mention hundreds of low level tmaps will never do (and some lvl 6's may never do since they beefed the wyrms and hard/impossible to solo with bard).. The dragon head will look great next to the troll trophy.. Just hope the new turn-ins can be combined with points from publish 52 turn ins so I might have a shot at getting some knight armor, though doubt not a whole set but that will depend on the value of new turn ins.
     
  43. Azureal

    Azureal Guest

    Its been said that the points you get now can be used for later, I would have to assume the reward list would stay the same, with the new rewards and trade-ins added.

    Confirmation from a Dev on this would be awesome though.

    Having reread the FOF...I had missed a few of the things added.
    I noticed this in the middle of the fixes
    "Added a statuette engraving tool"
    Anyone know what this is and what statues we will be able to use it
    on?
    I have to say this is an impressive publish. I also love the zoo change.
