    @Kyronix

    There was no specific post for Clean Up thoughts, so I made one myself!

    I was hoping for more deco, to be honest. And bless deeds. There were many really nice ideas in the thread.

    So the presentation stone... is the pedestal from the Underworld puzzles, but dyable and with a different name? Boo. That's one of the nicer rewards for those puzzles, so this is one less reason to do them. :(

    The talismans are definitely interesting!

    However... the number of points given for turning in some items is way off. The golden fishing pole and tinker's tool are both worth much more than 500 (especially the tool, which I think many people still don't even know exists).

    It is possible to solo Medusa with a sampire. (Actually solo, with one character, if you are careful.) As far as I know that's not possible on the Shadowlord or Exodus. Medusa artifacts (stone dragon tooth, ironwood bow, etc.) are worth 5000 turn in points. Ararat and Exodus artifacts should be worth at least that, if not considerably more.

    I don't think Minax artifacts should be worth turn in points. They are AFK farmed enough already.

    Also, no one should discard kittens. Send them to me instead! :D

    I agree with the above and Lucky's UO hall posts. I just do not understand why there is no deco item, no new deco item in this list.

    You cannot count the mailbox or pedestal. So many things you could have simply copied. :( Things that would NOT affect the rares collectors. Or let the person who designed the lighthouse loose. Something.

    I have more accounts than I need to own houses. I run a shop, I build, I deco.
    Now what? Not one new thing to use my points on. It may not seem important you devs but it is to me. It is so disappointing to wait so long for nothing. You added items for me to turn in to get more points and nothing for me to choose.

    The other parts of the publish seem great for many. I do appreciate the ability to combine dyes. Oh and the mushrooms do not count either. :)

    Ehh i dont want to open a thread just for this

    Regarding: "Players will now be able to combine similar Tokuno style pigments up to a maximum of 50 uses by double clicking the first pigment and then targeting the second pigment to combine them."

    I tried with pigments of tokuno (the ones that comes with 50 charges), haochi pigments and spring cleaning pigments and this feature work as intended, BUT I also tried with the 1 charge tokuno pigments and it doesnt work. Hopefully its a bug, i would like to combine these pigments and save some space on my house.

    Except we haven't seen any of the rewards from VvV yet.

    Also to mention for the traders quest you have
    • A rare chance at “An Expired Voucher for a Free Drink at the Fortune’s Fire Casino”

    • A rare chance at “Forged Artwork from King Blackthorn’s Castle”

    • A rare chance at “Slim the Fence’s Little Black Book”

    None of which anyone has seen yet, and could qualify as "new" Deco. Especially the artwork

    Forged Artwork from King Blackthorn’s Castle <-- This has been used in EM events already. It's simply the same artwork renamed and recolored. This is UO afterall!

    What? There is no event item called that, and unless you have received it on test, you have no clue what it looks like.

    I never said it was a drop. Maybe you should look around and pay attention to more than just drops at EM events. You know a lot of them are there for RP reasons. In this case the painting was in Scarlet Von Trinsic's secret hideout on Chesapeake at the very beginning of the last thieves event. Simply asking were I saw it is a lot less trolling than saying I never did btw.

    Just because an EM used an item similar for decoration doesn't = what the Devs put in the game

    Again, until someone actually gets one of Slim The Fence, all you are doing is assuming based on decoration on one shard, by one EM.
