I was looking at an alternative to the fire beetle for mining in Felucca on populated shards (i.e. increased risk of getting killed...) and looked at the Void Pool temporary forge with a life span of 4 hours for 250 points. Besides the fact that I could not understand whether this temporary forge comes as blessed, what struck me what the mere 4 hours of usage time and inability to re-deed it after partial usage. Basically, this means that one should pick it only when having time to spend a full 4 hours mining or the 250 points to claim this reward would get wasted.... Clearly, this is quite a limitation of usage because often I might have only an hour to play, not a full 4 hours (actually it is rare that I can play 4 hours at UO, continuously....). Perhaps some of the void pool rewards have too short a life span ? Perhaps players should be able to split the usage time between different sessions such as being able to stop and go the item as needed ? Bottom line is, as they currently are, the Void Pools rewards items with limited lifespan are appealing to players or are they not ?
