The devs told me to hang on to ophidian rations/blackrock, what do I do now?

    I have a bunch of ophidian rations, blackrock, ophidian journals and haven't handed them in as we were told they would have a future use. But I have not heard anything for a very long time and I want to know if I should bin all of this or keep it. What is going on and what should I do?

    This is a question I am sure other people have, and I know that "DEVS" (insert appropriate name of person who stated that certain items would have a use) may not be around anymore, but are there any plans for the future to make these items useful or attainable again?

    I cannot be alone in having many lockdowns taken up by blackrock, ophidian rations, snake skins, and various other items that were supposed to have a use. If there was a definitive "No, sorry, not anymore", I could get rid. If it was a "Yes", "No not yet but we will make them have a use" or even just a "Maybe", it would at least indicate some consideration.

    The problem for me is that I find it hard to know what to bother with if this happened again - I doubt I would ever try hard to collect the amount of things I have in the past because, although fun at the time, half the fun was in knowing these things would be useful. And knowing that this may happen again makes me apprehensive to bother with spending lots of time getting involved in such things again.

    If anyone has anything else to add to the above list, or dis/agrees, feel free to discuss!
     
  2. The future use that the Devs had referred to for the Ophidian stuff was the Spring Cleanup. If you missed that, then you're SoL. The blackrock's use was against the Shadow Lords in the last ToT. Again, if you missed it, you're SoL.

    All the "devs" that said keep them are long gone, chuck them.

    At least hold on to them until Magicinia gets rebuilt, should be by years end, cause you never know what it will take to rebuild, unless you need the space.

    Don't bother, you can still get rations and gold snake skins from ophidians, and blackrock is still obtainable by miners.

    And blackrock does indeed have a use in the game right this very second. I will not spoiler it but I discovered it myself only late last week.
     
  7. Since the Devs got tossed, Id toss the items.

    Right, and during that time it was stated there would be a future use.
     
  9. Those were the future uses they were referring to. They never said anything about it after those events.

    And don't forget to turn in all of your blue essences because the will not be useful once the turn in NPC is gone.

    Point being, everything a Dev says is not written in stone.

    As far as uses, I heard that the blackrock could be used to bypass the fields of the dark wisps in the Abyss. Anything else I do not know of.

    But I am in the same boat :) found a bag in the cavern of the discarded with 21 pieces of blackrock in it. Haven;t been able to toss it just yet.

    I heard rumor that you can leave blackrock out on the floor unlocked down and it will not go away/decay/erode/degrade/disappear whatever the word is. Of course you'd have to have a locked room in your house if it is public. Just in case you want to save it and not use some lockdowns. I'd try it with a couple pieces first, and you never know when that will change either so even if it stays for a day/week/month whatever one publish and boom all gone.

    keeping a piece of blackrock in your pack during the lich spawn in the SA expansion is nice. you can still hit dark wisps even when their shields are up if u have blackrock on you.
