    You forgot
    "I read UOStratics and found all the spoilers and then went to a house that had all the ruins locked down for puplic use"

    This... except I didn't use a rune library to get to the locations.

    Thank you to everyone who posted spoilers for this event so that lazy people like me didn't have to go find them ourselves :thumbup1: :grouphug: (really!... I sincerely appreciate it).

    I voted "I got help before looking".

    You also forgot... "I looked for the books with a friend, but we found them together looking like mad all over the place for them, starting at the moment Ricardo gave us the clues!" :)

    Choice number 4 pretty much encompasses this. I didn't want to come off overtly biased when I worded this one. Some people just wanted the loot, which is perfectly acceptable imho.

    :)

    Yeah, I suppose I could have worded the questions better. I had about 450 choices when I started and whittled it down to basically:

    -Found them all without looking at spoilers.
    -Looked for them all first but got spoilers/help on the ones i couldn't find
    -Looked for some first then got spoilers/help on the ones i couldn't find/didn't want to find
    -Just got the spoilers/help to find them
    -Books?

    which may actually be better questions.

    It's my first poll, I will do better next time. (that's what she said)

    After finding the first few by going looking for them, but finding the spots from watching where others were appearing and disappearing, I just gave up and checked here.

    :( I should have paid more attention to who posted the spoilers. Was it only RaDian? If so, then my last post should be "thank you RaDian".

    Isn't Ricardo apprenticed to our favorite thief Rico? Or cousins maybe?

    ...

    Snagged the info from RaDian (credit where credit is due), used the closest runes I had on a character that could Mark and made my own set accordingly.

    Normally I try to solve a quest by myself at least once. This time I simply lacked the RL time and was happy to find the essentials on UOGuide.

    heh

    but that's just "got help"

    and yeah, since people posted the info nearly as soon as they could (other than the fel spots), I just stole the info here, marked a rune myself, did the deed, then fell asleep again ;d
