New Artifacts From Abyss Housing Quest!

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Vertex, Apr 6, 2010.

    Sir Geoffrey's war chest certainly has some interesting items.

    This is a picture of a guildmate modeling a new artifact talisman, obtained by the Abyss housing quest as a random reward from Sir Geoffrey's war chest.

    Frostguard Talisman
    Cold Eater 5%
    Mana Regeneration 1
    Lower Mana Cost 5%
    Cold Resist 3%


    Has anyone else received anything special from the Abyss housing quest?

    I wouldn't mind trying for something like that. But I've no interest in having a house in the abyss.

    Ditto. Anyone care to comment on the fun and replayability of this?

    And do we have word on how long this is going to go on? Is it only until the housing spots are all taken or what? I have a major project that culminates on Sunday. This is not the week for me to be galavanting about the abyss, next week, however, I will be making up for lost time. :)

    I'm hoping (since I believe we were told earlier the devs didn't want loads of people getting in to the 'lottery' for a house they don't want or won't place), these 'quests' will be in stages so you can do the earlier ones for the items and story, but opt out of the final 'lottery for the house' part.

    I have done it twice once on my gargoyle and once on my elf/tamer and recieved a 48 intensity item and a 310 intensity item !
    and you can do the quest and not be a part of the lottery for the house!
    you can do it once per day per character(and i think per node but cant verify it yet)

    Well, I'm not exactly disappointed, but... well I got a relic frag, and I don't know how to feel. I guess I'll go try the human quest

    Since it seems to not be a "first come first served" thing, I can say that one of the LS nodes is directly bhind the stairs from teh uman entrance of the Abyss, ont eh little hook in the center of the lava.. you can get down to it by heading toward the stairs to the area with all the fire monsters coming from that entrance, but heading west and running against the north edge of the hill.

    the second human one is just past the entrance also on the little alter that looks like a pyramid
    the first gargoyle one is just before the bridge on the tomb of kings side
    and the second gargoyle one is also in the same area but across the bridge back in a little cave area that has 4 green l shaped wall things !

    also on ls shard

    Did quest 18 times. Out of the 18 times I received 5 special items.

    3 Frostwood Talis
    2 Ranger Cloaks

    So roughly 27% chance of special item drop according to my results.

    Did this four times and got two times a ring with one property and two other times the frost guard talisman and a relic fragment. Yes, you can do it once per node.

    More information on http://www.uoherald.com/news/news.php?newsid=1033 seems if you win the house it comes in a deed that can be sold. Also more dates and information on the event.

    Bah! I'm traveling this week. Even if I am unable to compete for a housing spot as a result, I hope I am able to get in on the new items before the quest goes *poof*.

    How long is this going to be running? I see the third phase starts on 12 April. Does that mean the first quest is no longer available.

    To be honest even if you cant complete the quest, the items are becoming increadibly abundant. I personally like this, the items should be around 5-10mil by the end of the event.

    No love for reds with this quest huh? So I get to do the quest twice a day while others can do it up to 6. Hmmmm....Couldn't put a green lantern spot in one of the champ spawn areas? The quest ingredients I could get on my blues if neccesary.

    Surprised noones posted haha thats one of the drawbacks to being red stop whining. Yet they are also the ones who want scrolls in trammel. Seriously though there should be a spot for reds to do this quest.

    Any guesses as to the relative value of a talisman with 'owned by no one' in comparison with the standard version?

    so far I got mostly junk, 2 relic fragments and a Frostguard Talisman Owned By No One. I am guessing owned by no one is much rarer. sorry if I sound like I am bragging just letting everyone know it is possible to get a Frostguard Talisman Owned By No One.

    So for day 1 & 2 there seemed to be a much better drop rate for the 2 special items.

    http://vboards.stratics.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=4060&d=1270736007

    33% chance from my numbers.

    But day 3 I completed the quest 9 times and received nothing. Also many others I have spoken with seem to indicate the drop rate is well below 30%. Some have done the quest 20 times and nothing.

    So... I'm wondering if maybe the drop rate was reduced during server down for day 3? IDK, I'm ok with the drop rate personally; just trying to get some answers for those who haven't been able to acquire their goodies yet. rolleyes:

    On Hokuto, it is on sale on a Luna vendor for 70 million.

    This is just what I've seen, and may not reflect the true value of the item.
