    Fel has Powerscrolls n T scrolls/replicas
    ilsh has paragons and tscrolls/replicas
    tram has 10th anniversary items
    malas has doom drops
    how about we give Tokuno dungeons the chance to drop Alacrity scrolls? would give more variety for hunts. what yall think?

    The way I see it, the SoT are a "repaired" version of the scrolls of alacrity - as the alacrity (a) did not guarentee any gain at all and (b) over-rewarded script-training. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't see alacrity again.

    Tokuno is become associated with dyes to me ... I think they should permanently add the ToT II "dull" dyes (just don't have them marked as redeemable for artifacts) or some of the slime dyes.

    Reinstate Treasures of Tokuno.

    That never lasted long enough.:eek:
     

  5. I kind of support this in a left handed under hand tribute kinda way.... what i mean to say is

    when i started this game it was just after the release of SE and i really enjoyed working my char up while hunting for the tok arties..good times!!!

    why not come up with 10 new minors for turn ins, and 10 new majors ?

    I'd love to see a back banner for samurai chars offering 10 dci (everyone wears a quiver of infinity for the dci why not have a cooler looking more powerful version?)
    and make it were you have to be at least gm in bush skill to equip it. for example the yumi you must have either 50 bush , or ninj to use the specials on this bow.

    the possibility's for min, and major items is endless...some others i'd really think would be great would be

    minor
    sandals offering 2 pt's in a random resist (basically to be versatile w footwear boots on a samurai NAHH sandals)

    major
    Shogun's Helm
    8 stam inc
    30 HLD
    phys 25
    fire 10
    cold 10
    poi 10
    energy 10

    major
    Yumi
    Balanced
    SSI 35
    Hit spell 40

    major
    Katana
    Sp Chan
    mage weapon -0
    DCI 15

    etc... u get the picture.

    What I'd do with Tokuno:

    I would take the dungeons and put a ML-scale boss in each one, a super-Yomotsu chief in the mines and a Putrifier-like Balron in the fan dancer dojo. Then I'd put either the old ToT minors on them at the same rate as the ML marties as well as on Serrado and maybe normal Yamandon (and possibly Travesty).

    Or if not ToT minors, other artifacts of the same quality with a Tokuno vibe to them, also tradable for ToT majors.

    Maybe not these exact ideas, but I am definitely on board with having at least a few variation of new treasures and having an event that would last longer than the last event had!
     
  9. AND put the same thing into the Lost Lands... SOMETHING should be done there besides having an entrance to Khaldun.

    I think they should have kept the tok drops going. Turn the damn things back on, at least once or twice a year.

    I need a caprice and don't want to pay some gouger to get one.

    I agree, I miss stealing those treasures when people would go to trade in the minor ones for the major ones...la

    Technically, Tokuno does have something going now: The Serado the Awakened spawn, and the unique rewards it grants.

    But yeah, that's one area in a pretty large map, much of which is empty much of the time.

    Tokuno's used more often, however, at least on LS, than it's given credit for.

    I'd definitely be behind some kind of specialized reward for it, though.

    I've come to think, however, that it's actually NOT a good idea to reinstate Treasures of Tokuno. Especially with Imbuing coming right around the (distant) corner. Why, for example, ever bother Imbue a breastplate of any kind when you can push hard enough and get the Rune Beetle Carapace, one of the most useful breastplates in UO history? Not that it's perfect for everyone, but it's perfect for a lot. I also kinda like the idea that there's a finite number of these items out there.

    So, here's some other possibilities. Some of these mirror proposals other posters in this thread have made. I make no claim to being original.

    • New items, useful but not overpowering.
    • Major revamp of loot tables in general, that effects Tokuno disproportionately. (So if, say, balrons get bumped up 2 steps, Onis get bumped up 3.) Basically this would restore Tokuno loot to its original standing when SE was released....And would be great to make Tokuno a nice place to farm for stuff to use in Imbuing.
    • Single-use, non-turn-in-able, and very rare dyes.

    Yeah might as well make a shield to match it with something like

    Buckler
    100 dex
    100 parry
    SC
    fast cast 1
    balanced

    but to make it fair it won't have any resists.

    all good ideas hehe. Lost lands need love too, other than the fel cs's T2A is mild. perhaps add a random drop of 3x gold on monsters in T2A or toko. make it so like every few kills theres the chance for a big chunk of gold.

    #1 for the level/difficulty of the mobs, while they do drop a good BIT of loot, the loot quality is surprisingly junky for mobs this hard. Most of the rings could drop off a plain old lich or orc lord.

    #2 T2A is unused because they've slapped on progressive content with the expansions.... EA please stop doing this. Take a lesson from games like WOW, when you keep slapping on progressive new areas in expansions (which are harder, higher level, and drop better loot than ever available before) you do little but completely remove any point to earlier content. The fact that no one really runs around exploring anywhere other than Ilshenar, and certainly parties never go almost anywhere but Fel champs or Ilshenar, attests to this. There is little "point" to visit T2A, and other than a few specific arties, few people seem to bother in Tokuno either.
