    Huntmaster’s Challenge



    The Huntmaster at the Skara Brae Ranger’s Guild now offers a monthly challenge for hunting various species throughout Britannia.


    • Visit the Huntmaster NPC at the Ranger’s Guild outside Skara Brae to obtain a hunting permit via the Huntmaster’s context menu.


    • Permits cost 5,000gp, the funds must be available in the player’s bank box.

    This is the one that got me most excited: The following items are now stackable: Grass & Snow Tiles

    When my account went inactive, thankfully the RtB came at the right time and I had time to empty my castle before it fell...and 2 out of the 6 chars I have..all they have on them and in there banks are snow and grass tiles :/ So a big thank you for this one lol.

    The rest looks amazing too, but that one really made my day :)

    excellent!

    only thing i dont like is the statuettes.
    not that i dont like the statuettes, its just that i COLLECT them and killing off my 15yr vet rewards to pick up a year 1/2/3/4 just cant happen!
    also noticed that we have stopped at 15yr vet rewards and we are at 17 + years in game, would it not have made more sense to make the incoming statuettes higher years? say 15, 16, 17 year instead of 1,2,3,4?

    really like the Huntmaster thing, quick question; im assuming that we can do this more then once a month?
    so i can go and buy and kill like 30 bear tags in an attempt to keep getting a bigger bear for the competition? just wondering cause its not like we can tell the size of the animal before we kill it, no? so i assume as long as we keep paying the 5k per tag we keep hunting?

    Err.... how's this going to work, since they only 'spawn' from the cornucopia?

    Also I just closed down my client and there is a new patch out. At least for the EC anyway. 67mb.

    This is an excellent patch with what looks to be fun content. I was worried there for a couple months but it looks like the team is really making some long awaited progress. Bug fixes for the EC are a welcome sight indeed!

    Just wanted to say awesome publish, there is at least 1 item in there that has been asked for over many years, the player base appreciates it! Lets try for 2? :)


    The randomly hued gift boxes? What style are the boxes? And is there a random chance to have a neon color like there was years ago? Nothing like getting that white holiday statue/rare name/awesome neon box for added Xmas excitement ;)

    Amazing. Great job. And we've still got the new Pinco's UI and (I think) graphics updates coming (I can't wait). Will this finally end the complaints the developers "aren't doing anything"? (I wouldn't bet on it.)

    Can the power scroll books be linked with a scroll binder to upgrade the ps while in the book?

    @Kyronix

    So only one person a month can win per category?

    I'm afraid that many people will give up on this system after being told their 'permit doesn't document a bigger kill!' (note, there is currently a typo in the Huntmaster's text, as he says "Begging thy pardon, but your permit does document a bigger kill!" even when it clearly doesn't based on the current trophy's weight).

    I'd suggest this either be a weekly thing, or that the top 3 weights get points (3, 2, 1) and that the reward priced are bumped up a tad.

    Edit to add: The new trophies are pretty cool though! I foresee the turkey one being used quite soon...

    I think...if I read it right...that even if your permit doesn't weigh more, it still counts towards points at the end of the month? So you can turn them all in to receive points is this correct?

    Also...BIG gold sink omg...I've spent 20k alone trying to get the biggest walrus :/ LOL

    Multiple people can win per month if they all tie. We'll see how it goes and make adjustments as necessary. Thanks for the feedback and the typo note!

    Kyronix, not to complain, or pull up a sore subject but! Do you have any plans to offset the inevitable use of scripts to farm this new system.

    Wow, Thanks guys, I am excited to see the new stuff which by the way, looks wonderful and also like a lot of fun, but more.............I am so happy that this "sky is falling" thing is put to rest for at least a while and so happy to see content like this to tell the naysayers, "Lookit that!! See what they did???!!!"

    I for one, appreciate the work you've all put into this and I can't tell you thanks enough!!
