    Is this a new fad since character creation? The last 3 times I went to test, I brought a few museum oddities, and before I can even leave Luna bank, someone offers to buy something I have on. Either to put in their houses or to imbue and wield at Yew Gate.

    Now I know the feeling of acquiring a new rare with it in your ownership. It's a powerful thing in a sick, twisted way. However, bumping into people on Test, offering me gold on a home shard to get a copy of misc. rare items is kind of...strange? How long before they revert test? Why does test even matter? Lol.

    I simply just gave it all away.

    That's a question that most of peeps who play test as their main probably can't comprehend.

    This piques my curiosity. I was approached by a character on Atlantic asking me to transfer my char over to test. When I asked why, he told me that I had things he would be interested in but was being generally vague. Stuff like this concerns me, especially since we are talking about a *test* server.

    Nope. These guys were wanting prized rares. I gave away half a bill worth of stuff. I check the items as well, and all EM items I have come across have low values as if they are just regular weps with name and color modifications (Which they are, duh).

    Ya there is a guy on TC that will give me gold, Clothing Bless Deed, pets etc. For rare event wearables on tc. He even offered me a blaze cu if i could get enough items on tc. I havent really thought about the whole transfering them off of TC or duping them on another shard. Quite Scarry if you actually think about it. Hope that never happens. I was just xfering for free gold lol.

    Well there was that time where the green and red pets popped up (there are items called "air" on test center that come in these colors and do just that). But on the other hand, there are some noobs on test who are actually serious about playing only test center and do spawns, peerlesses, decorate houses or collect rares....but yeah, get rid of test center please.

    On a side note, has anyone seen any neon metallic dye tubs pop up or dyed items? I'm just curious after the last post about the vendor with neon green platemail.

    I think the GMs have a lot of the duplicating problems on lockdown, aside from a few. I just think that the dwellers of TC1 simply don't have any real characters or gold on real shards so they just wish to suit themselves with rares from the real shards since TC1 has been given VERY LITTLE attention for the past two years. TC1 used to be a developer friendly shard and used to always have activity. Now it is mainly used for PVPing and the new cleaning project.

    well it is a fact that some people do play test shard as the main shard...wierd but they do....guess u can have anything and everything from day 1...may be these test shard players just want the edge with wearable em stuff

    easy fix would be to wipe test every 2 weeks???
