    was sitting in my house, looked over and saw one of my parrots.
    got to thinking..... who has the oldest parrot in the game?

    as far as i can figure (with me thinker) is that parrots came out with Mondain's Legacy expansion as loot drop on peerlesses.

    so if thats the case ML was released Aug 30 2005.
    your parrot does not start to age until it has been placed for 1 week.
    so as far as i can figure IF you placed a parrot right when the expansion came out if would be 411.5 weeks old right now.
    (expansion will be 8 years old on aug 30, so thats 416 weeks, - 1 for the first week of placement - 3.5 weeks until 8 years currently = 411.5)

    so, lets measure our pixil, just for fun.

    my submission.
    Ruby, located on Great Lakes.
    Age as of today = 410 weeks.

    well maybe thats ok.

    8 years = 416 weeks.
    we are about 2-3 weeks away from the 8 year mark.
    so ya, i guess we could probably squeak that in at 414 weeks.

    good to see EA's math skills are as leet as mine, haha!

    3 of my originals survived moves and limited house storage at times.
    The oldest is Bluebie, with Mcpink beside him a close second.

    413 is my oldest. On a related note I once killed someone elses parrot. I wonder how old he would have been today had I not unexpectedly killed him. It was during the Ophidian invasion of Vesper and this guy had a small house right next to the south bridge. One of the spells or abilities the Ophidians used turned the parrots in the house grey. So out of curiosity I went inside and took a whack at it and the freakin thing DIED. BAM right off the perch. Corpse and all (no loot). I've always wondered if anyone else had ever killed a parrot...

    FYI:

    Years are 52 weeks + ONE DAY long 3/4 of the time, + TWO DAYS 1/4 of the time.

    So, since we've had 2 leap years, the 8th anniversary of the release of the expansion will be 417 weeks and 3 days, not 416 weeks even, as the extra days per year add up to almost a week and a half.

    Thought mine was from the first day. Pretty sure he is actually. But he's only showing as 410.

    True, but don't forget Atlantic's almost month long revert not too long ago which honestly leaves all of us on that shard at a 4 week deficit from the rest of the folks.
