Power Crystal= Why Are Meer Dropping these? (PUB 67 Origin)

Discussion in 'UHall' started by DarkScripture, Jul 31, 2010.

  1. Almost every meer on Origin is Dropping Power Crystals. Does anyone know why we would be needing these in mass? They should STACK.. Please for the since of sanity make these stack..

    you want a guess? probably the next item to turn in maybe?
     
  3. Seems they are for the next round of turn. THANK YOU DEVS for listening and not flooding the market yet even more with Crystallized Black Rock. Please make these stack before the pub to all shards!!!
     
  4. I don't seem to be finding any special loot on the Bane's bodies this time. Not sure if it was removed or an error.

    From what someone found digging through the recent cliloc changes, the Bane are after some:


    Obtain 20 power crystals and return for your reward. Power crystals can be found in various places in Ilshenar including in the Meer village. The reward for this quest is food for the bane dragon, it is the only known thing that they eat.
     
  7. I was sharing notes. Get off your high horse there bud. Last round there were drops on both sides. This time seems one side did. No one asked you for anything personally.. You seem to want to pick a fight GarthGrey. Asking for stackable item drops I personally feel is with in my right. If you don't think so too bad.
     
  8. I agree... please make them stack!

    Is there really any reason they shouldn't stack?

    Just had a look, Theres a 'Meer' loyalty in the menu but I think the actual war system is bugged.

    Theres 3 Bane camps at the moongate, 3 flags and like 10 tents! :D

    Meer loyalty ?

    So it means there is a Meer war chest and Meer rewards ??

    All I have to say is, those of us who were stupid enough to pay millions for blackrock stew *raises hand*, were stupid... It seemed like a good idea at the time...

    This was before I knew about tasty treats in part, and in part because I thought I got a real deal on a few of them at one point... :)

    Probably can't because they're animated.

    I thought that also but Crystalline blackrock is animated so I'm doubting it, They are a really old item so I think they've just forgotten to do it.
     
  18. Crystalline Black Rock stacks and is animated as well. I do think it would take a new STACK art to allow it.

    PT Barnum would have loved you! Before the 7 days of bonding were up, they had already announced tasty treats would work.. a sucker born every minute! I wish it was in my DNA to take advantage of people like this.

    Well in my own defence I only fed my dragon a bowl of stew before I knew about tasty treats...

    Doesn't need much 'defending' - I'm fairly sure the vast majority of players still don't know there is an alternative at all to Blackrock Stew, unless I've missed something there is nothing in-game, or on the UOHerald, to tell people otherwise.

    Huh, weird. I've never seen crystalline blackrock outside of a container before. Cool.

    Anyhow, this is long been a staple dev excuse for "too hard" to make something stackable:

    It is animated so the state changes (not an issue as cbr shows)
    It is exceptional quality (seldom matters)
    It has maker's mark (not even the same mark)
    It has limited uses that can't be combined (engraving tools)
    It is a rehued item that doesn't ordinarily stack (clockwork assembly)
