    I loved that event. Very exciting! Too bad it was over so soon.
    More screenshots can be found at the usual location.

    I rather thought that the unseens were a bit of genius.

    Amazing how one monster could lay waste to everyone. I saw the first one and just hung back casting noble sacrifice repeatedly.

    Now I've more than satisfied my ressurection quota for the year.

    If anyone is up to to the challenge of finding Hagrid, then I want that person to pay VERY close attention to the date (2-7-09) that I put the quest public. I think it will blow your mind of my foresight into what turned into an official event. Almost like I knew something ahead of time. *winks* Basically there is a strong connection to the official event, and my player run event. I almost wonder if someone took a bit of my idea and incorporated it into the game. I'm rather um, well...proud of it. :)

    And yes, the quest is still ongoing, no one has yet completed it. :(

    I got very lucky in holding my Cntrl-Shift down when we were blown across the room during that gem breaking. I snagged seven shards... However, I think that if it had truly blow apart, that shards would have 'gotten on' everyone and they should've popped one or two in everyone's packs.

    It wasn't fair for those of us who couldn't handle the lag.

    Also, I understand that the WoS is over now. However, I think that the end of the event should've been a little more defined, perhaps with the head of the guard coming out to thank us once the dragons were gone.

    Casca's attitude is very troubling as well. He talks like he's Obama, but the difference is that I didn't vote for him. I think he's a nasty piece of work.

    Calina, I am pretty sure that those shards are merely decoration items. Thus worthless. If some didn't get shards, they will have less crap lying around in their houses. :)

    Who is Obama? Is it a player or a GM?

    Obama is the one driving.

    I presume she's referring to Barack Obama who is the newly elected President of USA. As you can see in SwordBlaze's comment, American Presidents are great targets for comedians.

    This is hilarious! Where did you find it?

    lol that's a great picture :D

    Yes, I know it's just for deco, but so what? People like deco and they deserve a shot at getting some. If it's worthless to you, then if you get some, give it to someone who will value it.

    Ask any one of my guildmates... we go to IDOCs and such, and I'm the only one running around yelling "WOOT LOOK I GOT A WHITE V-DAY CARD!!!"

    Deco is serious business :D

    Ive already seen a few sell for 25 million


    I took a newbie character and got 0 because i didn't event have night sight to see the ground lol
    [​IMG]

    Aww anyway i agree, they advertised that everyone was guaranteed something and already the event is one sided for super powered tamers and mages.


    I'm not really mad about the item drops, I'm just pissed that I have no idea whats going on most the time and honestly thought Casca turned into the crimson dragon at the end.

    It make so much more scene if they released a transcript of what to expect... like goals, plot characters, the areas the event is being held, and a cut off time and stopped herding us around like children.

    (also if they plan on dropping a lot of items again i hope they don't flash the white light because my monitor isn't so great and it tends to black out the screen for a few seconds)

    Yeah, I never like how most pve events seem to favor tamers. Biggest Dragon wins, I guess.

    Ridiculous. There are 40 per shard. So multiply 40 by how many shards and that's a lot. Definitely not 20 mil. I one of mine to a buddy (i got 4) for one mil and a vampire bat statue thing lol. No need to rip people off.

    And here I sold one for one million, my second for a bag full of non-runic bows (and a promise to join in the militia fights). (She in turn traded hers for a new sorcerer's gloves since she lost hers to buggy insurance)

    I'm keeping the third.

    I tried to give one and two away, but they insisted that I was poor and bought them instead.

    Lord Va'lis Razele, remember when you traded the broken crystal to me? I asked if you were sure about the trade... are you still sure??!! Your kindness and willingness to share with someone, who didn't get one, that you also didn't even know, was and is appreciated. I will always remember the kindness. I won't ever sell it because it was a gift.
    That being said... I wouldn't blame you a bit, if you wanted it back to sell and I will give it back to you, just let me know what you would like, since we didn't know it was such an expensive present.

    Cynical post is cynical!

    I didn't make it to the event - but typically yes, the deco market has insane nonsensical prices. Often mroe because people want to show off their rares rather than use them in any sort of deco idea.

    Hahahahaha, we already are in bankruptcy thanks to Bush. But let us not get political as I think it is against the rules.

    I have three more crystals, if someone wants to buy one for 50mil be my guest LOL.
