    Do you all lug a fair few runebooks around in your packs?

    What do you all think about some kind of 'encyclopedia' for runebooks...and/or magery related books? Is it just me? I have a ton (ok well more like a dozen plus plus) runebooks alone, and they are stacked, overlapping, in my pack; north and south! So when I drag into my pack (yeah, on the cc), I must be sure to miss pausing my cursor over them or the item falls back from whence it came.

    Do you think we should look at a runebook for our runebooks? ;)

    Can you just put the rune books in a bag within the pack, or is there some negative to doing that?

    You'd have to do that over and over every time you died.

    I got done in by an ore ele a few weeks back due to digging one to many times before smelting ore and had my nicely sorted library on me. Couldn't run and got killed. Dev ears had to be ringing loudly as I sorted *that* backpack mess back into it's containers. :rant2:

    Been a loonnngggg time since I've been done in by an ore ele. :mf_prop:

    As someone with no magical means to transport... yup. Both crystal portals, and community tele hubs are godsends.

    Agreed.

    I wish the Crystal Portals had a more comprehensive drop down list... there are still things missing that you can only say outloud. It's understandable why some newer players might find this confusing.
