    Spring Cleaning 2008
    Ah, how time flies. Spring has come once again to Britannia, but the sweet smell of blossoming flowers outside our homes can’t belie the memories of battles fought long so very long ago. Or is that the chest overflowing with Ophidian weapons in the corner? Or maybe it’s the bag of cursed artifacts hidden upstairs?

    Time to cleanup, Britannia!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Draconi...
    This talk of "first round"s and "publish 53"s is making us wonder if we should save our sheilds and swords for the next round...
    Or is the next round going to be something completely different?
    IE: There's no need to hang on to the current trade-inable items for any reason other than keepsake value.
    Danke.




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pub 53 will mainly implement lower point rewards, except for the mouse hole. So, saving your points will be less necessary, and we'll post more details about how the armor set will act soon.



    [/ QUOTE ]

    So we can hand in now and hold onto the points for the next round of rewards. That was the main question I had concerning this all.

    Same here, good to know.

    Hmm at a pinch I might be able to afford what I want this round, but I'm wondering what the mouse hole will cost..

    lol.. if you find yourself with excess points to spend, lemme know &amp; I'll buy them off you. I know how strapped for cash you are. [​IMG]

    *edit*

    Thats great news mate, thanks. At least this will benefit a lot more people, now.
    Fink, how nice of you to share that, i bet a lot will be envious of you, saying that. Sorry just dont like to see people flaunt it, even here. [​IMG]

    Guest Guest

    Actually I don't really have that much stuff, just it added up rather quickly with the new points scale. Either I miscalculated or lots of people are going to be pleasantly surprised, wasn't trying to brag.

    Guest Guest

    i worked mine out roughly tonight, what i could stand to let vanish and out of my collections, all i got was 121k
     
  13. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Oh well you made me curious so I decided to add mine up. Not counting the stuff I will keep for the museum and a few spares of each item, I get around 1.8 mil and recover 1216 lockdowns!

    Pity they don't want stuffies, fireworks wands, valentines cards, pumpkins, reindeer, holiday trees and gift boxes plus a heap of other useless things I seem to have far too many of [​IMG]

    Mine was just a total of everything I could dig up. There's probably a fair chunk of rubble I'd like to keep. I should get around to using it &amp; see what I need for deco &amp; what I can let go.

    I went there last night i think it was and they arnt dropping anything so its something they are turning on with 53

    Guest Guest

    So apart from the skins/rations which seem now to be the easiest to get (from what Ive read) is the rest of the stuff still available for collection, or were those items part of something else? I can remember just before leaving last time the Ophid invasion was happening. A lot of the items for handing in came from that aye?

    Hey now that's more like it, decent sort of suit. I suppose it makes the virtue set pretty much redundant. I think maybe the virtue set should get special bonuses based on your levels in particular virtues.
