    I'm curious what others think about the Treasures of Tokuno minor artifacts. This is my third time around in the event, so I don't really have a need for any of the major artifacts. Should I hold on to the minor artifacts for a future event?

    Unless you can use a specific minor they really are useless to you to keep, I don't see them being introduced into another spring cleaning [it was six or more years between clean up events] or other event. I would sell them or turn them in and sell the major artifacts. Possibly trade them for dye doses if you were collecting a specific colour.

    If you suck like me. The armor is not bad. The exiler is a good mace weapon for the ice fiend. Two of my characters use the minor chest piece.

    A few pieces are good for new players.

    ...

    For macers the Exiler and Dragon Nunchaku are good weapons. The Flutes are always helpful to bards, the dyes are dyes, and of course the mempo is itself.

    Beyond that, the minors are either very template specific or better for newer characters.

    If you're a collector type, you might try and one of each minor, trade the rest in for one of each Major and go from there, otherwise, probably keep the minors you plan on using, turn in for the Majors you plan on using and vendor-sale the rest over time... how you do so is up to you, the minors can be turned in at any time, so they will always sell even just as a generic minor, the Majors are VERY dependent on current template choices and may be a bit more difficult to decide which to market.

    I have kept the Gloves of the Sun and and tentatively holding on to the Stability armor piece.

    The Dye's are also tentatively being held on to.

    I traded a the other stuff in for 3 Swords of Prosperity.

    Im surprised at the optimism you guys have on the sale of ANY of the ToTs. Do you seriously think, given that they have dangled this ToT carrot times before, that ANY player, barring those that had taken a break, or God forbid, NEW PLAYERS, would buy any of them?

    Sheesh, Im not even taking part in this since I have NO idea what to do with those that I already have other than to drop them in Luna. Then again, would anyone pick them up?

    I just find it sad that the devs had to reactivate something old and stale just to keep the player base occupied. If there were an influx of new bloods, Id fully agree to this. Seen alot of [young]s recently anyone? NOT.
     
  10. Yeah, I do think so, and it's a good thing too. I get bought out completely of nearly all of my ToT minors daily, and majors about every other day. I guess more gold for me since you don't want to participate.


    I'll be more than happy to take any unwanted ToT arties/marties off your hands. I'll even come to you for pickup. Just let me know when you're ready.


    I've seen quite a few young characters recently. I've been seeing them regularly for some time now. If you find ToT "old & stale", that's just fine, that's just one less person looking for a spot to hunt. Feel free to grow plants, go fishing, or whatever it is you feel like doing with your free time now.

    I have started keeping mainly minor armor pieces, like the Ancient Samurai Do etc for new players, the majors and dyes I am hording, as I missed most of ToT2.

    My only complaint really is the extremely low drop rate of the mempo, it is supposed to be a minor after all, think i have worked it out at around 12k of Tsuki wolf's, and other stuff I have killed since this started, had multiple drops of all other minors and dyes, but not one mempo :(:(:(:(.

    The stats on that thing are in no way "minor".

    The only reason the mempo qualifies as a minor is because it drops like the rest of the minors.

    I've got so much of this stuff I don't know what to do with it.

    It's a good thing I have a whole lot of storage.

    I just went to a new shard with all new characters.

    I need it all. It's a lot easier to hunt for ToT drops for four hours (new character, doesn't kill very fast) than it would be to make a million gold (odd that the price hasn't dropped) to buy swords of prosperity, rune beetle carapace or whatever other ToT major I need.

    I will be keeping the dyes I like and some of the armor pieces. The rest I'll be turning in for RBC's and Kasa's for newer characters.
     
  17. Sell them.
    Sell everything for now.
    Last week of event keep the stuff you get.

    Depends on the shard. On my home shard, I'm planning on keeping them all until I need to turn them in. However, I started 2 new necro-mages on 2 new shards and now have them fully outfitted in 100 LRC/ 30+LMC/ 8+ MR 2/4 casting mage suits. This was done solely by doing the champ spawn and collecting minors to turn in and grabbing the gold at the end. I personally think its been a great event!
     
  19. ME TOO! I can't believe people are complaining that other people are getting too many arties. How selfish is that?
