    Yes, I know what it is, what it does and so on, that's not the issue.

    The issue is that it REALLY needs to have a clean-up routine in the ToK that goes through each time the server goes down for maintenance and comes back up that deletes all of the ground-glued treasure sand in the Tomb.

    Not a big issue, just one that may have been overlooked.

    I always have to smile when I see the trail of sand piles some people leave. Saw some last night on LA on the Abyss side of the gate between the Tomb of Kings and the Abyss. Could just imagine someone muttering about having to shake all the sand out of their backpack.
     
  3. Ok, I'll bite. What is it and what does it do?

    Pile of sand, about 25 stones. Niporailem, the mini-boss in Tomb of Kings, throws it into you pack as a special move.
     
  5. So it doesn't do anything other than make you overweight?
     
  6. I was just going to ask the same thing Conner... Miner, is that all it does?? I thought since it was blessed it had some other purpose?

    Because it's blessed, you can't just die and res to empty your pack.

    It gets thrown in your pack as Treasure (a pile of gold) weighing 25 stones. Drop it on the ground and it turns to sand and 2 or 3 new mobs that start attacking you (which means it's not so easy to get rid of while fighting the mob involved).

    Apparently the sand doesn't decay nor can it be picked up and moved after it's been dumped on the ground.
     
  9. Darn, I thought it had some other purpose, like a quest or something lol oh well, makes cool deco anyhow :) hehe

    Don't forge thte stuff in the Abyss and outside the tomb in Ter Mur! And add the webbing in Navery's lair to that as well! Currently, if a "temporary" mobile like a summon gets webbed and times out before the webbing releases, the web becomes a permanent fixture in her lair.

    You actually notice new webs in her lair? I swear when I go in there a half hour later my dragon looks like a mummy. :eyes:

    What about a bag of sending? Does it stack? Send it to your bank.

    Now if only they'd let us take that 25 pound treasure sand home and turn it into 25 individual piles of sand; it'd be a great way to save on having to dig for sand that is probably the most ridiculous resource in the game to have to dig for (I mean, come on, 300 digs, 20 pieces of useful sand? Who came up with that system anyway?).

    Ra...

    Seriously, do you even need to ask that? :mf_prop:
     
  16. Anybody know what is so special about Niporailem? Does he drop something nice? O and I like the sand, I just leave it in my backpack and he can't dismount me the next go around.

    i have noticed that if you drop one a monster spawns if you kill it sometimes drops as a smaller lighter non blessed treasure sand
