I know that alot of people that just start out want ethy's ... also the fact that there are ALOT of year 1 and 2 rewards out there that are basically worthless... you can buy a black dye tub for cheap now adays, since there are so many in game. Why not add a function like this to help out the new players... You all know that once the vet gump comes up you get to use 1 point at a time to pick 1 reward.... why not make it so like for example be able to use 2 points on a reward of higher value... EXAMPLE: .. year 1 ... you get one point, and save it for later use. year 2 ... comes around you get another point, save it. THEN: have the option to turn in 2 points for a year three reward... it would shave off a year for people to get ethys... BUT would also take away two year 1 and 2 rewards from the system. Thus saving rewards... using TWO points you get to choose a reward from the following year. This would help out those waiting for years to pick an ethy, giving them it a year earlier... and also would be a neat option to get rid of all those points most people have been saving up for something better. Maybe have a new list of items that uses 2, 3, 4 etc points ... for higher lvl rewards. Would give us a reason to save the points, also would introduce more rewards for the players that stick out UO... Just an idea... came to me thought it would be nice for everyone so to speak. Let me know what you think?
