    I want them all, Muhahahaha!

    Any info on how to obtain them? I only have about 40 or so extra from Halloween so I hope that you don't have to trade like 5 for 1 or something outrageous like that or I will have to buy costumes :wall:.

    Looks like NPC will do it.
    I will trade your Halloween costumes and red crystallized essences for exotic costumes.
    Click a Halloween mask to give it to Sarah.
    You do not have any Halloween costumes or red crystallized essences to turn in.
    Say "browse", "turn in" or approach me to trade your costumes or see mine!

    As for hunting there is something about
    Monster Stealing
    Left hands must be free to steal treasure from monsters.
    Only pull the latest corpse
    Pull all corpses
    You cannot pull the corpse killed by other players.
    You cannot pull, as the corpse has been already pulled three times.
    and other much more cryptic messages.

    Pulling corpses?
    How odd...

    Nothing about the blue crystals, that were stated to be having a part in the upcoming event?

    There was no text containing "blue crystal" even for healing cursed gypsies. So text about their use not linked to their color.

    I believe they will be used for rebuilding Magincia which is scheduled to take place after the Holidays, but of course, who knows when that will be lol.

    45 red crystals left.. *woot* Although I hope we get to pick which costume we get. Randomly getting all 26 is a little tough!

    Wow, cool costumes! I hope you don't have to trade in both a crystal and an old costume (or some number combination of both) since I have tons of old costumes and no red crystals. Bad planning that!

    Hmmm......

    Why is it that I foresee a wave of purchases of Halloween costumes all of a sudden ?
     
  16. The wave already happened.

    What you forsee is the placement of costumes on vendors for extemely high prices.

    Me im waiting to trade.

    I had a look via InsideUO and saw no new artwork like I did for the halloween stuff.
     
  21. Yup, already happened on Pacific. Everything I saw a couple days ago for 50-100k is now 500k or gone.

    I hope that means when a corpse falls on a static piece of terrain deco and becomes inaccessible we can move it to loot. I can't count the number of times swoop has landed on the rocks and refused to move, and I was unable to loot the corpse when I finally killed him using nothing but magic.

    A little trick for this Swoop issue. Hit it with a spell and invis. Stay invised until it moves or makes a noise, if it doesn't move off of the rocks, rinse and repeat. I do it all of the time.

    if you can, copy the directory from the client on your computer and paste into his.

    It's a lot easier to do on XP machines as opposed to Vista or 7, because the newer OS seem to have some sort of weird problem with a person trying to alter their own files in the Program Files folder.

    You got me beat on costumes by a lil'. But I kept red crystals, yellow crystals and 300 blues... Not too many reds though.
     
  32. GreySteele

    GreySteele Guest

    This kinda contradicts what the Nov 6 FOF stated in regards to the reds:

    What’s the deal with all those crystals from the Halloween quest (especially the blue one)? Should we keep them or ditch them?
    You should trade all your red crystals for costumes as Tomas will no longer accept crystals once the Halloween event ends on November 15th. You might want to hold on to your costumes (even duplicates) as they may be of interest to someone else in the not too distant future! You can keep your gold crystals for as long as you wish and summon the Harbinger only when you see fit. There is no deadline on using them. The blue crystals will be of use in the next story arc. They will not be essential, but will definitely benefit to those who have them.

    Was just thinking about that actually, I turned all my red ones in because she stated they'd be of no use.

    All part of the cycle. 1 dev giveth the next taketh away. :p

    I agree with the earlier poster thou in that i think the blue ones will be used in the re-building of Magencia somehow.
     
  35. altarego

    altarego Guest

    I thought we already decided that you won UO?
     
  36. Exactly. She told us specifically to get rid of the red crystals because they would no longer serve any purpose after the end date for Halloween, but also told us that the blue ones would have a use in the future. I sure as hell hope they fix this before they release it or there's going to be a lot of pissed off people.

    I'm kind of annoyed at myself for only keeping 3 red crystals (wanted more for deco purposes). I'm sure if enough people grumble they'll make them monster loot or something for the event arc. I'd be in favor of that, I need more (for deco purposes*)!










    *my #1 priority, "having fun" is 17th, just for comparison :p

    I think they are going to _allow_ us to use those crystals we didn't turn in, not _require_ us to. In other words, I believe we'll be able to simply turn in costumes.

    Edit:
    http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=169769

    Sakkarah actually makes it very clear (IMHO) that red crystal won't be required - unless "to take pity on" means something very different than I expect =)

    A lot of people forgot or didn't get around to turn in all their red crystals before the event ended. So we had the option of either letting them trash their crystals (or use them for decorations) or give them one last chance to turn them in. We chose the latter.

    Generally speaking, it was more beneficial to have turned them in during the event than it will be trading them with Sarah. But at least those who missed the deadline now have a final chance to do so IF they want to. Note however that turning in red crystals now will NOT give you one of the old Halloween costumes.

    And yes, you can choose the costumes you want from her.

    *mumbles something about spoilers*

    Because of swine flu I didn't get a chance to turn all mine in so I'm very happy about this. :thumbsup:

    I was commenting to a very nice person I know that I helped get many of those costumes.

    You can kiss my a--

    From now on you bring it, you get it...

    Another thing anyone else here says they have something good you guys say great. I do, you give me grief. So basically understand me plainly I tried nice. Nice didn't work. Nice never worked anywhere at any time in my life.

    I will speak at any time I want. I will say EXACTLY what I want. While I'm on the subject, one time I posted 3 or 4 things in a day. I thought it was fun stuff. I got grief. 2 days ago I made 1 post the next day I made another post. I get crap about ALL the posts I made. You guys are not only rude, you are normally inaccurate about what you say. I sent petra a note and asked if there was a limit to the number of posts you can make in a day. She did not answer and we all know theres no limit. If theres a rule post it and I will follow it.

    This is a bulletin board in a video game. It's not important in any way other than helping us play more effectively. You aren't special because you hide in your house and talk random crap. What you do is a form of evil. Cool, let's get down to it.

    Are you Alterego because your real ego is so unhappy?

    Whats your real problem my man?

    The other day the guys from HOME placed a castle on Atlantic. Can you believe it? I know I couldn't. Then they couldn't sell it for 800m. Can you believe that? I couldn't. Well, its my new home... If ANYONE else got that house they'd have posted and we'd have all congratulated them, but you see I got it. So, I didn't say anything til now. But, if you want to hate someone for the stuff they have in this game I AM YOUR GUY. Bring it, here or anywhere else.

    can you please tell me what about us with many halloween costumes and no red crystals to turn in does that mean wiill not be be able to get these new costumes unless we buy red crystals from other players? why cant we just trade a halloween costume for a new costume? at the very least give us something new to substitute for red crystals so everyone can get the new costumes without having to pay an arm and a leg for them from other players.
     
  43. trade the old costumes for new ones.
    or turn in red crystals

    Its amazing all the stuff we lost over the years by taking breaks at the wrong time.

    The thing I hate the most is all those Heritage Tokens. Man that is just soo sad. Seems like you'd get the stuff if you paid for the game the next time you logged on... We didn't ever not pay them.

    We missed the Chargers too.

    Can anyone one tell us yet which new costumes are from trade ins and which we will have to pull from corpse how ever that will be done? does pulling it from a corpse require stealing and if so do you need stealing skill to do so?
