    Reduce Items NOT gain more Items

    Turn in 500,000 points get a gender change token
    Turn in 1,000,000 points get a name change token
    Turn in 2,000,000 points get a soulstone token
    Turn in 5,000,000 points get an advance character token
    Turn in 10,000,000 points get a character transfer token
    Turn in 100,000,000 points and gain a Royal Title for your character
    Turn in 1,000,000,000 points get a Special Malas place Castle

    In this system you can only gain points from handing in items, not completing quests with newbie characters as ghosts.

    While I don't think the idea is bad anything that will make them lose money I doubt will ever happen.

    I think the current rewards for points are satisfactory. If there hadn't been both a dupe and an easy exploit to get massive amounts of points quickly I would be support additional rewards.

    Too many people have acquired millions of points from exploits and I don't think they should be rewarded for it. I somewhat doubt anyone has 10 million points without using any exploits. I completely doubt anyone has > 100 million points without using exploits. I don't think systems should be changed to reward people for cheating.

    The Rewards don't have to be current uo game codes, they were examples... I was trying to give examples. Hoping the UHALL of FAMERS and FLAMERS could come up with more examples.

    too true.

    1 billion points for a malas castle bothers me also, make it 600 billion points and maybe we can talk.

    It would be nice to be able to purchase a permanent title for gold or points or as a vet reward. It's not unrealistic for the time, considering baronets were created solely to raise money for King James I. Knighthoods and royal titles would be difficult though, considering that the game has always allowed us to create characters with sir, dame, prince(ss), etc. before their names.

    Since the turn-ins are of a limited time, i see no problem with this.

    Precisely, a titled system much like the eminent library, zoo, and museum titles except this is for royal titles, perhaps a variety of choices for each Sosarian City with matching surcoats and cloaks with city specific emblems.

    wont happen, cause people are cheating to get points! :loser:
     
  12. Well they are maximizing the opportunity by using all their charactures. Thats not cheating. Just bad game design.

    Unless there is a cheat that you know about.

    There is a difference between cheating and something being so easy that people take advantage of it. Human nature, we always pick the low hanging fruit first. I do think it is interesting that SOS bottles take 100 fishing. Plague Beast Cores require the paralyze spell plus skills needed to deal with junk spawn around it. Power crystals, rations, and masks require at least some fighting skill. These give a few hundred points to maybe a thousand (if you fish up the SOS loot). With explosion potions doing so much damage, any character can get 25k points for little or no work.

    I think this was the first time my crafter went to Ilshenar. Wait, no I'm wrong. I went there for shadowiron ore from the puzzle golem control towers along with some roleplayers. I agree it is a bit lame, but it reminds me of a Raph Koster quote:

    I think the current rewards are fine. I think these are supposed to be a few minor rewards for those who clear their rooms, not some incentive to horde more in the future.
