The paintings, baskets, sculptures etc on trade center? If so what happened? Thanks.
I received 10,000 points each for level 1 basket, level 2 zen garden and level 3 cups.
This is on TC right?
Yes this is on TC. I'm sure they'll adjust the point values, but it's great news that stealables are included in the turn-in.
Those point values are actually justifiable, considering the length of time it can take for a simple lev 1 to respawn, which can be as long as an hour. Please don't try to get the pt values lowered. Thank you
Actually level 1 usually spawn every 1.5 to 2 hours, level 2 spawn 3-4 hours, level 3s about 3 times a day, level 4 about twice a day, level 5 - 1 day, level 6 - 2 days, level 7 4 days, level 8 - 8 days, level 9 16 days, level 10 - 1 month.
So yes, most stealables spawn at a slower rate than drop rates for berserkers and doom guantlet artis.
So far, this phase has done a great job of Spring cleaning the vendors out, across the shards.
Nice to see that the level 6 and below arties will have their time in the sun, even so just for a fleeting moment in UO history.
10.000 pts justifiable considering the length of time it can take for a simple lev 1 to respawn? lol i have a thief/sthealer and this points are ridiculous...!
...at a slower rate than drop rates for berserkers and doom guantlet artis?
have you ever been in doom?
or have you ever try to:
- find a berserker
- kill him
- luck to find a ****ie
I think high points for stealable artifacts are ok - especially if you consider that they are usually rare enough. (Or have you been one of the happy guys who got several of them just after introduction?) As they have been in high demand, they have not been available widely.
Now it may be a bit different due to the lack of using up. Also many people complained, that thieves get no love. Now they get some, and some people complain again?
But fine, I could agree with some point levels according to the rarity of the artifact:
Level 1: 1000 points
Level 2: 2000
Level 11: 11000
This would bring some more value into the rarity property.
i was gonna say 100 points per level. 1k a level? Little high.
10k for equipables.
Here's an idea that splits the difference - heck, I think I even suggested it for a library type donation before the big crash...
Use Summations for the turn-in values. ( hope I'm remembering the right notation for summation - been over a decade since I had to do such stuff in college)
The formula would be 100 * ∑ (Artifact Level)
Level 1 = 1 * 100 = 100 points
Level 2 = (1+2) * 100 = 300 points
Level 3 = (1+2+3) * 100 = 600 points
Level 4 = (1+2+3+4) * 100 = 1000 points
Level 5 = (1+2+3+4+5) * 100 = 1500 points
Level 6 = (1+2+3+4+5+6) * 100 = 2100 points
Level 7 = (1+2+3+4+5+6+7) * 100 = 2800 points
Level 8 = (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8) * 100 = 3600 points
Level 9 = (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9) * 100 = 4500 points
The Level 10, 11 & 12 Arties would stay the same.
Regine EAMythic said here: http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=2425&page=2 that the 10k is a mistake and that it will be fixed.
i cant wait to see what the points will be. however i dont agree with the 100 points some of you want. i can get at least 3 minor paragon artys an hour easy and i dont even have to have gm skills. those turn in for 500points each and yet stealables even on the low end are 1 every hour to 2 hours and you have to have gm stealing plus compete with the other theifs. i think 500 points each min would be fine.
cant wait to see wht the dev team does.
100 points per level is way too low. It's much easier to get gauntlet arties than a level 5-10 stealable.
I can get 1-2 gauntlet ones per hour on the right character, granted my tamer and mage get them slow about 1-2 per 3 hours, but my melle character do just fine.
Level 5 once per day, 6 different ones spawn (great if I am the only thief on Great Lakes and or spend 23 hours looking for them all while trying to beat the competition for them)
Level 6 once per 2 days, 6 different ones spawn, 3 per day
Level 7 once per 4 days, 5 different ones spawn, about 1 per day
Level 8 once per 8 days, 5 different ones spawn, about 1 per 2 days
Level 9 once per 16 days, 6 different ones spawn, about 1 per 3 days
Level 10 once per 30 days, 4 different ones spawn, about 1 per week
Sorry it's take alot more time and dedication to get the higher level stealables.
This would be more like it
250 points level 1
500 points level 2
1000 points level 3
2000 points level 4
4000 points level 5 (1 person can get this once per day)
8000 points level 6 (1 person can get this every other day)
12000 points level 7 (1 person can get this every 4 days)
16000 points level 8 (1 person can get this every 8 days )
20000 points level 9 (1 person can get this every 16 days)
30000 points level 10 (1 person can get this once per month)
