    Like the bar pieces, valentines gifts, beverage machine, grinder, Got tons of the same stuff. Been waiting to get points for them. Also the sun/moon dial. Don't know why every char has to receive the same thing.

    So they can leave the extremely low chance of getting rare items in the gift bag, if it were only one per account instead of one per character, they would have to increase the "rare gift rate" by at least 500-700%!

    I do indeed dread logging into 9 accounts worth of characters each time a new gift is handed out... most of the time I don't always get every character done on my main shard....
    one per account would be nice for some of the gifts. I think the compassion dyes were like that, one per account...

    Everything else should be added to cleanup>rewards, like scroll books and such, but on the following year.

    They should just assign these items cleanup value when they add them to the game.

    And increase the point value on them every year so the older they are the more they are worth.

    I'm in agreement with @CovenantX and @Odin of LS.....

    Things should get added to the list of things for clean up points after the 1st year... when the next years gifts come out.. and then each subsequent year if you held on to them longer that point value ought to increase so eventually it might be a much larger incentive to throw it away than to keep holding onto it.

    There are tons of things I don't bother throwing away because the point value is so small it's worth more to keep them than to throw them.

    That would encourage people to hoard - the exact opposite of what they were trying to accomplish with the cleanup.

    My vote is for primer Is. In the current system they are mostly worthless, yet drop in abundance.

    I hope they dont add up any "major items" as cleanup items since a big exploit was done by players when the cleanup system came out, and people made bills of cleanup points making copies of some sort of books... So for me its a NO NO

    I don't really need cleanup points to trash them. :)

    I must say the devs are a bit weird sometimes, trust me i didnt bother checking any anniversary bag, i took both scrolls for my crafter and trashed everything else... They could have came out with 1billion other ideas, a book to store the new masteries/reforging metal tool with 1 charge, anything! Even the bags were ugly, was expecting some cool hue gift boxes instead, it was boring and the element of surprise was missing

    If they were actually trying to encourage folk like me NOT to horde then they should make things worth more turn-in points. I'm sorry but I don't really bother with much below 1k in turn in points... Just not worth the bother to sort, gather go to a trash can and toss... May as well just stay put for peanuts.

    10 points who are they kidding... to get anything relevant you'd have to farm for days or toss ridiculous amounts of things. Like every single gift they give on all your characters... which no not happening.

    Since we are talking cleanup points it would be nice to have those points combined per account like the new banking system. Instead of switching to the trash can man!

    I'd like to again ask that the old weps that hold charges (ie, clumsy, curse, feeblemind, mana drain, etc,...) be added to the clean up list. Both weps and armor have been removed from game over a decade ago.

    Armor that holds charges is currently 5k points per piece. Weps of the exact same time w/ charges are worthless (4-12 points).

    Thanks :)

    I am in complete agreement with you. I just don't understand why they don't take advantage of the interesting things that can be done and have been done in the past.

    It's only pixels. You're not entitled to some reward or special points every time you get a gift or complete a task. Clean up points should NOT increase just for hoarding some useless junk for X amount of time.

    If you don't want to hold onto stuff against your housing item limitations... then you have the option to trash them and forego the clean up points. Most of the clean-up point rewards are all pretty cheap to buy on Vendor search, so you're not really missing out on all that much.
