    Hi all, Ok I targeted the plate and it would not let me steal it. I'm 120 stealing.
    Do I have to use telekinesis on the object ( plate ) before the attempted steal?
    Sorry for sounding so newbish. I have no problems doing doom or tokuno stealables.
    Or can you pls PM with the info.
    There's no lockpicking on this char.

    eat from them once then just pick them up, they're daily rares, no stealing required. Eat twice and you have a 'dirty plate' 3 times reduces them to just a plain plate and you've blown it.

    Thank you so much. looks simple after you've explained it. Goes back to noobsville.
    Serriously though, I never heard or read it mentioned anywhere what one does or did attaining server births, are there others that enjoy a similar theme to being obtained?

    kind of, the empty baskets that are stealable and scattered all over are able to be picked up after eating the fruit. But for this one Draconi gave the clue when he posted a picture of himself in the huts with the line 'nom, nom, nom' underneath.

    Barrels can be gotten from gypsy camps in similar fashion, once you've unlocked and untrapped it, empty it and you can pick it up. Take it off the server you found it on though or it's likely to disappear at the same time as the camp that spawned it.

    Shouldn't have helped him - he beat me to them by seconds this morning ;)

    (actually, I didn't know you had to eat them, so it wouldn't let me pick them up anyway =))

    Was fun to see more than one person logged in and hidden there! =D

    Hehe Tesshy, soz, well I must admit I looked kinda dumb the other day until it was explained to me as well. The guy seeing me there trying and not getting anywhere, only to see the plates disapear before me. Well i'm still learning about this game, so its all fun.
    Oh by the way, I've been busy decorating the house, you must catch me sometime and come take a look!
    Oh and i'm only getting enough plates to do my dinner setting, wonders how many others out there hording them to sell at a huge profit??

    so I just got back after a year off...went in the middle of the day in Tram to try it...14 plates later, I think multiple spawns a day is a little over-kill. (Still nice to make my huge dining room buffet thou)

    Dont get me wrong i like getting these plates just got 8 this am. I just think you should have to steel them to get them I cant believe they are going for 75k in luna and all you have to do is be hungry walk up eat and take no skill at all :-( the same with most items baskets etc
