    Atleast on the Atlantic shard, as of midnight, we have two days remaining before the cures are to be finished. I figure I warn people. So ends Saturday at midnight problay.

    I am hoping it is over once servers go down on Saturday. Aren't we suppose to find out rewards and stuff on Sunday or will it be Monday?

    Putting all my sugar and vanilla on a vendor today and tomorrow. Was on holiday the last couple of weeks of June, so no chance of setting up a cure production operation that would have matched the powergamers.

    :( This event, ably assisted by my own stupidity, has cost me my imbued virtuoso suit. I died in the middle of the blightborn slime, went and ressed then in horror realised what I'd done and that the suit was still on my body - in the middle of all those nice aura damage mobs. I tried several time to get to it, failed miserably. So my next task is rounding up the ingredients to imbue a replacement.

    :) Thanks for the offers, I think I've got it covered. I have enough clean up points to replace the suit, and enough resources, with the help of friends and hubby (when I've persuaded him) to imbue it. My tailor went through around 1k barbed leather to get the right balance of resists on the legs and sleeves. :) Just hope my maths holds up :D

    Just get it over with so they can put out a real event. Something like the Ophid Invasion. A ittle RNG luck goes way farther then making UO play a second job. And they better not pull a "we Dumb" and give everyone that made a half effort and above a reward. Stick to your guns and not insult the players.

    Isn't there to be 3 different cycles of this "making cures" portion of the event?

    Yeah get this pathetic idea of an event over wit.:grouphug:

    :scholar: Only thing I hope is they have been diligently watching the cures and seeing if anyone has been there 24/7 just turning in single ingredient cures. And do some legwork and BAN them whole from the game. and any account even remotely associated with the one scripting. Would be awsome to see them actually use this horrid excuse for an event to do some real good.

    I made a small number of cures, then left my leftover slime, cuticles, and yeast at Luna bank on LA. I got tired of trying to get vanilla and sugar on a non-gardener.

    I NEVER saw anyone else making cures, and I can only testify to knowing of two others that talked about doing it (as in, asking for help/trades for supplies - namely the very same sugar and vanilla).

    All right. Don't take this personally, but you can speak for yourself about a "real event." I had to smile a little when I first stocked up on ingredients. This was a clever way to get players to visit certain game locations, or to grow certain plants.

    Also, as far as randomness, no way. NO WAY. This would be completely unfair to those of us who took the rules at face value, turning in as many potions as we can to have a top ranking.

    * The more preparations that are turned in, the higher the ranking when rewards are distributed.
    * There are four rewards available in both human and gargoyle versions where applicable. The type of reward you receive is based on the race of the player who turns in the preparations.
    * It is possible to get all four rewards if you are among the top contributors during the event and any combination thereof (Tier 3, 2, and 1, or Tier 2 and 1, or Tier 1 only).
    * It is also possible to not receive anything if your contributions are not on par with the distribution of other contributors.

    If it had been mentioned at the beginning that randomness could be a factor, no one among current top contributors would have put in this effort. After all the work we've put in, randomness would be a slap in the face, giving better rewards for less effort despite the rules set forth at the start, not to mention bad precedent. This isn't the 10-day Ricardo thing or the ophidians, which had multiple chances.

    Zog Historian: I think the way it reads is

    5 Tiers:

    Tier 0: You didn't do enough, so you have no chance of a reward.
    Tier 1: You get Tier 1 item
    Tier 2: You get Tier 1 AND Tier 2 items
    Tier 3: You get all items except the bracers
    Tier 4: You get all items, including the bracers.

    I'm not reading "randomly not getting anything" anywhere in that statement.

    Personally, I'm just hoping I qualified for Tier 1, to have something to put in my rooftop museum.

    Wow, I forgot about this. I turned in all my cures on a gargoyle char. I assume the human arms would be alterable so would much rather have the choice. I could race change before the end to human.... but is that too risky? I would hate for the process to somehow randomly delete my participation all together.

    yah, Lord X, I would be hesitant about taking the chance of the system forgetting about your contributions


    ..... and I completely mis-read the directions from the start :( I've been telling people to at least get one cure turned in and they'll get a sash, which I see now is totally wrong

    very sorry to my buddies on Legends

    What I hope with all this quest is, since they made it so we can see who made the potion (name is wrote on the cure) , I REALLY hope that if someone actually duped some and turned them in, they can see that this cure has a weird code attached to it or same code as another or I dunno, and so they could retreive the owner and have the proof to bann him and bann all other dupers (if there are).

    What I'm trying to say is when someone dupe a slither and slither get sold and sold and sold again to someone else, its hard to keep track of the original duper, but with those cure the name is wrote on it ! Unless they dupe a cure of someone else ! grr lol theres always a possibility for those cheaters ...

    yeah..I just hope its over soon enough. I have busted my butt on this entire event. I earned every town banner which I placed in my castle (i have lost some of the town loyalty now though so I better not remove them), earned all four statues (that was painful) earned four nexus to place on the top of my castle, and sifted every artifact. This posrtion though kinda sucks as you have no idea how well you are doing.. I mean today is the first day I even seen anyone else making cures. The possiblity of cheats during this portion is large and anyone who turns in 200ish of the cures over the course of the event and gets nothing will be sad. At least if I did not earn anything I will not be making any further cures that is for sure.

    The way this event should have handled rewards is through a point system.

    Each cure you turn in is worth x number of points. Then the healer has the rewards selectable from a gump, say the sash at 10-25 points, the staff at 45-65 points, the necklace at 85-100 points, and the bracers at 125-150 points. This way, people have attainable goals to strive for, not a constantly moving target and the high likelihood of disappointment.

    Should start about 9pm PST tonight, as the event changed at exactly that time last night, from 1 day to turn in the cure, to less that 1 day to go. I am thinking that in just under 5 hours we will start to see the totals of the people who contributed, posted by said people. :)

    Yes, that's what I said. Nothing about randomness was suggested in the instructions, and I took it that way in grinding out several hundred cures.

    If the devs silently implemented randomness into the reward distribution, it would be nothing but orifice violations to those of us who did a lot of work.

    Absolutely agree. I was going to express this in a related post, but...
    I Don't PVP, and this "event" seems to be based on that. While it's not hitting another player over the head w/ a club, it does pit skills vs skills. Might as well add GrindFest to its title. Sure, someone will come around and try to "rationalize" the whole mess, and say it's cool, it's working great, and well designed - so, go work your butt off, then come and show us what you got for all the time and we'll help you to compare your event rewards VS. what the local scripter is getting/got, while they slept. This would have to be right there in the top events that are Fail.
    imo, Event rewards should be worth something related to the time and energy spent by the player. And I'm now, more than ever on the side of arte sales stores where old things could be purchased w/ in-game coin.
