    I am trying to collect a full set of Mesanna tagged Poinettias. I have 9 different colors at the moment and was wondering gif anyone has figured out how many colors there are total?

    Your defiantly missing 2 colours possibly more. You have in your pic

    1 2 3 4 6 7
    10 9 11 12

    Iv found one with a different name that fits as number 5, 11 colours would just be a wrong number! If you line them up in order you can see it doesnt look right, it doesnt flow properly [put them on black gozas]
    And then the last one doesnt flow with the first one and it should, so there would/could be another two as 13 and 14

    If you have the EC, use the Pinco UI to get the exact hue colour
    I can confirm 12 colours so far, with 24 Poinsetta tested. You can call the item hue in the EC with Pinco or using this macro; (copy and paste into your character's file)

    <UserAction type="Macro" id="17" iconId="3" name="Colour Hue Finder" repeatEnabled="false" repeatCount="2" binding="">
    <UserAction type="UserCommand" id="0" iconId="790" targetType="Cursor" text="script WREH=WindowRegisterEventHandler; WUEH=WindowUnregisterEventHandler; RWD=RegisterWindowData; UWD=UnregisterWindowData" />
    <UserAction type="UserCommand" id="0" iconId="790" targetType="Cursor" text='script function CBRI1(objId) PrintWStringToChatWindow( wstring.format(L&quot;%04x&quot;, WindowData.ObjectInfo[objId].hueId),1); end' />
    <UserAction type="UserCommand" id="0" iconId="790" targetType="Cursor" text='script function CBRI2() oId=SystemData.RequestInfo_ObjectId; RWD(15,oId); CBRI1(oId); UWD(15,oId); WUEH(&quot;Root&quot;,65580); end' />
    <UserAction type="UserCommand" id="0" iconId="790" targetType="Cursor" text='script WUEH(&quot;Root&quot;,65580); WREH(&quot;Root&quot;,65580,&quot;CBRI2&quot;); RequestTargetInfo()' />
    </UserAction>

    So far I have seen colours 0a5b to 0a66...

    I do not use the EC, never have, never will. I will see what I can do about finding the 2 colors I am missing. I'll be glad in a couple of days when the prices on the Mesanna ones drops. At the moment they are kind of expensive to collect!

    Okay. Added one and reorganized for proper order. I am looking for #8 on Atlantic and will trade 2 of my extras for it if you have it. PM or ICQ me. Thanks! And if anyone has found any other colors please let me know.

    I see the reverse happening, as people start collecting and hording, there will be a fight [price war] to get the last 1 or 2 that people need for there collection and will start offering more than the next person hehe *stashes all mine away*

    same with holiday bells/statues ect

    I have looked at over 500 poinsettias now and I have yet to confirm more than 11 colors. So, unless anyone can show me another color I am guessing that there are 11 colors and 11 names.

    If needed Rowan I can meet you and use the Pinco hue ID to check the colours if needed. I can do it from the trade window.

    Offer is there for anyone. I had the same thing with the muffins before. So many colours look the same. After testing the hue ID I found I had 2 the same.

    Yup, the details I gave are the hex code for where they appear in the cliloc, but these figures are also correct (and are what the Pinco UI will return if you use that colour sampling method)

    If anyone on Atlantic could help me deturmine which color I am missing I would be most appreciative. Since I do not use the EC is there any other way to figure it out?

    Okay, I think I have it now. The problem for me is that 2655 and 2656 are very close in color to my eyes. Does this look right:

    Yeah, try and do all Mesanna ones. It got pretty expensive in the end. I ended up spending about 50 mil total for the set.

    Thanks all for updating all of this and posting pics!


    I'll be your friend :)


    From my understanding when I watched videos and read threads on the last Fairfax meeting in August she sat up front with all the Devs and was introduced, so I'm assuming she is a Dev. I know she works there with the team in the office.

    Have you got any left to trade or sell Rowan? I'd like to try and get a set myself but the prices seem to be all over the place at the moment.

    Yeah, true, I have some really great friends in UO. I was just making a funny. Or as my GF would say making a not funny.

    I will have a few more on Atlantic in a few days and will let you know.

    Thanks! I'll take all the more friends I can get!

    Do all the Colors and Names for the Poinsettias have the same chance to spawn or is there any color or name that is rarer to spawn ?

    If so, what is(are) the rarer color(s) and name(s) ?

    I'm not sure, but I think the pure yellow spawns less frequently than the other colors.

    As far as I can tell there were no rare colors. Some of the colors are hard to distinguish unless they are put next to each other.

    At 6500 turn-in points who cares? I got mega turn in points on shards I play but don't have a house on, and saved valuable bank box space. Sadly, the useless (to me on those same shards) grass and snow tiles don't stack.
