    Obviously, the Mysterious Strangers have finally made their entrance, so I might as well detail what you get for taking them down.

    When they die, there is an explosion of gold and rare gems. Likewise, a "Magical Lockbox" drops when they die. When opened, it sets off an area effect DP trap, then becomes a moveable, takable item. There are 16 types of gems (from at least the one stranger), and they're all ones we couldn't get before.. a picture:

    Happy hunting, everyone.

    *edit* It's actually 12 types... 4 of them are just the normal gems (including the amber). Please note there is a form of ruby that looks identical to the regular one that drops here, but can't be stacked with the others (which is why there are two stacks of that sprite in my pic).
     
  2. ya got the chest on Sonoma today, just need to get a few more of those gems next time.

    Little more info on this event please? Do the Strangers spawn and if so where? are those the only jewls that spawn?

    I ask because there are other rare items that this event might Ruin. Event item Large Emerald ATL event, Event item Large Diamond, and the Server Birth Large Saffire.

    If those items spawn then they will no longer be considered rare. We need more updates from this event please.

    And are these Strangers hard to beat? what is their difficulty level?

    No idea, no idea, and I wouldn't be a good judge of how strong they are.

    Damn "rares" people only worrying about what stuff won't be worth as much anymore, I swear.. and yes i'd count myself in that group as well, except I couldn't care less if something i've had for 6 or 7 years suddenly is worth less than it was. That would just mean I had 6 or 7 years where I COULD have sold it but decided to cherish it instead (or, in the case of most people around here, greedily latched onto it in the hopes of making an obscene profit farther down the line), and it obviously would still mean just as much to me afterward. >.>

    No it means they are worrying about items they have spent a fair amount of gold on for their RARE collection, for it to no longer really apply to their collection as its no longer rare.

    Only seen Myxkion in Despise so far, and it's definitely a group fight. There should be other "strangers", but i've not heard of anyone encountering them yet...

    Only 12 of them are actually new as the 4 regular vendor shapes dropped and stack with the regular ones.

    Someone said something about the "piece of amber" being rare but the vendor ones have the same name.....

    I edited my first post a while back. The ones i've surrounded in green should be the ones that are just the normal gems:

    [​IMG]

    They should even combine properly with the normal ones, so it's a good way to tell. The others are all jsut as rare as I thought tho.

    It's my fault.. I didn't notice the regular ones were in there. Sorry everyone.
