    Will the brush be available and maps still work after the 29th?

    Will unused fragments and maps disappear after the 29th?

    Maps should still work fine, but with the brushes gone you won't be able to track down the nest.

    Brushes on a timer. Without brush the maps become deco till maybe next year. If they don't use this system again it would be a real bonehead thing to see if the parts recombine after the event ends.

    Some plp claim to get plucked from the Cornucopia. I hope this is true that a very useful tool can still be earned to those holding Cornucopia and dedicated to unloading them. Over 1000 pulls and I've not gotten a plucked from one.

    I hope plucks never becoma available from the cornacopias, if you didnt get one hard luck, if you did then well done you must have worked hard to get it or were very lucky.

    Everyones expects the right to get every item ever released in game and this shouldt be the case.

    Rares are called rares for a reason, how many doom rares are there ?.. answer none, you can buy them all over the place.

    Keep rares rare.

    The Harvester Blade is a tool that just sits in your backpack. Not some deco for your home to display. Or a weapon plus armor to strut around Luna bank with. Sure it can be imbued and used but a GM piece can be imbued better for a dexer if they desire that weapon type. And if some mage mule wants to use it. They wont be tackling anything big. And what they would kill for gathering their blue beetle could do faster.


    I agree with keeping deco,weapons and armor rare. There is enough other chioces out there or crafted items that noone is left out. The Harvest Blade is a usefull tool period. The extra few leather,meat and feathers wont tilt the game. I have a load of blades and will see what they go for on vendors and under cut those prices to open locks. The only reason I have so many was a byproduct of trying to get one Harrow. Didn't happen oh well hope the blades balance the cost.

    Well, the brushes are still available and work.

    Maps still work.

    No more Turks though.

    Not sure about the butcher/harvester's blade thing.

    Lot's of fun. Hope another mini-event comes soon!

    For those that only read U.Hall, and don't know what the tool does, that Warpig is talking about... A repost from UO Craftsman...




    The Harvester's Blade is a 2-handed weapon gained from turning in a plucked turkey (random rare turkey kill, or destruction of giant turkey egg, drop) to a butcher in any of the Trammel cities (possibly other facets - not tested).
    • The weapon in all respects appears to be a specially-colored Elven Spellblade (fencing weapon, STR requirement 35, two-handed, weight 5 stone).
    • The weapon has Spell Channeling with no Faster Casting penalty, but no other mods. They can be imbued with other mods, nut are best used as a tool in your backpack.
    • For its "Harvester" role, it can be kept in the backpack - it does not need to be Wielded (just like the Butcher's War Cleaver - The Skinning Knife has to be wielded to be used for cutting corpse for cut leather).
    • With the coding of the Harvester's Blade, the long standing "63 item" and "350-ish stone weight" bugs that left cut leather in corpses from the Butcher's War Cleaver and Skinning Knife were finally fixed as well - however, this means you can now put yourself overweight using these tools.
    • Unlike the other tools, it harvests ALL of the following, if present from carving the corpse: Meat (ribs, raw birds, etc. not yet tested on fish), Dragon Blood, Scales, Feathers, Leather (as cut leather).
    • Not only does it gather all of these directly into your pack, it also gives a 10% bonus to the amount for ALL items harvested - not just the leather. This means that a dragon will give 8 scales, 22 leather (if the blade user is an Elf or Gargoyle), and 10% more Dragon's blood and meat.
    • Humans get that bonus on top of their normal bonus, which means that the bonus can be greater than a simple +20% (+10% from being human, +10% from the blade), for the following reason...
      ---The 10% bonus for humans is +1 leather per 10 leather, or fraction thereof (be it 1, 9 or anything in between). So, 10 becomes 11, 12 becomes 14, etc.
      ---The 10% bonus from the blade works the same way.
      ---In the hands of a human, the blade actually uses the HUMAN base for the blade's 10% bonus, so that a Greater Dragon (which gives a base 30 leather) gives 37 leather, not 36. 30 gets +3 from being human, then +4 (+3 from the 30, and +1 more from the 3) from the blade.
    Needless to say, this reinforces previous determinations that leather-gathering characters should be human (from the bonus, plus the Strong Back weight allowance), as not only will humans get even more of an edge, the Strong Back attribute will provide better safety margins when dealing with the usually unwanted meat popping into the pack (not to mention Dragon's blood, which you may need for a Mysticism caster, but typically you won't be after when hunting for leather).
