    Think so From what we could read on Mesanna's Producers letter:

    We have already started working on Publish 79! I am sure everyone will be happy to know we are working on a method to distribute the Scroll of Valiant Commendation. We have come up with new seasonal content for Halloween and added a few new items to the pumpkin patches, so have fun and remember to visit your graveyards *evil laugh*. For this publish we are getting Christmas gifts and Veteran rewards put in so I hope everyone enjoys what we have come up with. Yes, sneak peeks will come later!

    Anyone has any idea of what new Veteran Rewards we may be getting ?

    I hope, given the milestone of 15 Years birthday, that the new ones will really be comparable to the importance of the year !!

    I doubt they will ever top the effect the Polar Bear had. Nothing said "that is a vet player/account" like the Polar Bear did.

    Boots/talons that leave a trail of fire footprints and allow the character to run at flying speed. Random 4 stat increase while worn, and they go to your pack when dismounted. Have to be DCed to be worn no pet slot. One race shouldn't be able to move fast without sucking up a pet slot, or did they fix that?. OK that ideal sucks for the less then 14 year old accounts if they are for 15 year old accounts only.

    OK muss up the hair on the Cu and change the tail to that spikey thing the frenzy HAD on EC at first. Call it a Worg Eth and throw the Orc RP players a bone. OK lame for same reason above.

    Seeing it will be impossible to come up with a cool 15 year vet reward without the younger masses raising the water level of Sosaria from tears.

    I think it would be nice if they added 3 new rewards... One at the 15, 10, and 5 year points for vets of various ages. This should not only be about those few who have been in since the beginning. Certainly, the 15 year one should be the best of the three.

    Personally, I think that so far the very best of all Years Top End Veteran Rewards has been the Teleporter Tiles with second best being the Shard Shields. We've had enough mounts be them ethereal or not, IMHO.........

    Hopefully, being 15 Years a real milestone year, 15 Years Vets will get something really very special to top even further those 2 special Vet Rewards....

    I also hope to see something new added that can be claimed, albeit not as special as for 15 Years accounts, for 10 and 5 Years old accounts....

    A veteran house deed, which allows to place/take a second house on account w/o penalty (and will go back to deed form in the players box, is the house goes down).
    An option to pay for a livetime subscription code just as they had in Lord of the Rings online. Never again bothering with account payment issues.

    We are getting Patience? Cause I have needed that since the first time I GM'd a skill. Will it be a one-time use patience? Or will it be an amulet that is rechargable (I assume it would finally be a practical use for all that liquor we distilled...). I hope it is dyable. Just saying. That would be cool.

    For a 15th Year Veteran Reward I think it would be nice to be given from the Developers a one time use Deed (clickable) that will generate any of the spawnable items currently existing in the game at the player choice.

    Would not be inbalancing since it will make an item players already have or can get through hunting as a drop and will be a nice token of appreciationg towards those players who have been supporting the game for so long. By clicking it it will bring up a Menu with a keyword search option and the player, entering the name of the item wanted to be reproduced (or part of the name) will then have it displayed with the option to have it reproduced. At that point the item would appear in the player's character's backpack or bank box and the Veteran Deed vanish.

    A gift to give to players a little of that time they spent the game over 15 years back, by shortening the time to get that one item they have been looking for so long and want so much but without much luck......

    just a thought.

    In my opinion, 15 year vet rewards should raise the selection to 4 rewards.
