Trade in essance for relic frags?

    This is just a question I am posing here to see what the reaction would be from the player base, and the Devs. As I see it the hardest thing to get for imbuing is Relic frags. Heck, I have only managed 50 of them so far, What I pose is a "trade up" feature, like scroll biding. Why not make it so that I can trade 100 essance for 1 relic frag? This certianly isnt unreasonable since I have only managed like 4000 essances in game so far. This would only give me 40 relic frags. But it would give me a much better chance of getting the frags I need to imbue the stuff I want.

    As I see it now I think duping might run rampant for relic frags. You cant imbue at the highest level without them, they are almost impossible to get, and since they only have a item ID until consumed, they will be impossible to catch dupers making them and using them immediatley. They wont be sitting around collecting dust..and, if you can dupe them why would you ever sell them on a vendor (sure way to get caught if a vendor always had a couple thousand relic frags for sale) when you can imbue armor/jewls and sell them for 100 times more then the frags would be worth?

    In my opinion duping relic frags will be the next in thing, so why not allow us to trade up our lesser essances and mr's for relics...any thoughts?

    You shouldn't even bother thinking with dupers in mind. When a error in the code happens dupes willl happen nothing you can do. This method would be worse than dupers as relic fragments will naturaly be as common as magic residue in a matter of a week. Grab cheap copper,dull,shadow runic hammers and let it rip converting mr to essance and essance to relic. Have 10k relic within the hour. Making them pretty much worthless.

    lets look at the 110 and 120 PS for imbuing. For 50 relic you can get a 120 or for 500 essance you can get 10 - 110 and combine them for a 120. So that means 10 essance = 1 relic. 100 to 1 is way to much, I could go for a 20 - 1 if UO set a vendor to do it, only.

    False. You need ten 115 powerscrolls. If you want to combine 110s you need 5,000 magic residue.

    Indeed. The rarity of relic fragment is the key of the system. If relic fragments are made more common, what will happen is that people won't be afraid to imbue that last property at 100% intensity (even at 2% success chance) and won't be afraid of losing that piece after a while since it is easy to make a new one.
