    How is that a scam unless the rune doesn't really take you to the colored slime?

    They're only supposed to be in one location for two days. And they should only be on Origin at this point.

    Unless someone's reading more into the stuff from the spoiler thread than the rest of us are. There seems to be a quest that involves an NPC at the zoo and collecting slime acid.

    Maybe some folks know more than the rest of us. All I get when I try to talk to Iakas the Zoologist at the Zoo on Origin (a Quest Giver NPC) is a message, "I'm sorry, I have nothing for you at this time." I also killed slimes in Fire and just for good measure some frost ooze in Ice on Origin and saw nothing unusual. And the Zoo Collection donation box didn't seem to list any new types of pets you can donate or any new types of rewards.

    Would you mind explaining the "two day" part please?

    From my understanding there are several locations they can spawn. Every couple days a new color spawns and the locations change.

    Like IDOC runes you can't prove the product your selling has any value until after the customer has already bought it and used it ... that sort of business tends to be asking for trouble. Even if you're an honest merchant, your helping create a market that will attract scams.

    (actually, even if you are attempting to be an honest merchant, you may accidentally scam people if, as is widely believed, that the slimes are not staying in one place for more than a few hours .... the usefulness of the rune may expire between when you mark it and when someone buys it)

    (but you are right, it's only a scam if its not as advertised)

    All I know is what's in the Publish 57 notes (http://www.uoherald.com/news/news.php?newsid=475):

    The spoiler thread may include a list of the 5 new hues.

    Most likely the runes do exactly what they are advertised to do and that is take you to the slimes. Maybe not the dyed slimes, but the ones in the swamps. Same caliber of scam as those people that put Valorite smithing hammers, 15 uses, on their vendor for 18 million in hopes that someone thinks it is a Val runic hammer.
