    Does anyone have any tips on this? It's going to take me forever and a day to get enough points as it is. :(

    Get a dexxer miner with hll weapon or a sampire miner down to Blackthorn dungeon and kill golden elementals, smelt their ore.
    Each 60K golden ingots is worth 150K points. You get 15K golden ingots per hour down there.

    Treasure maps work reasonably well, especially since forged pardons are better to trash than sell since VvV went in. I keep the occasional loot that's good, unravel things that give relic frags and junk the rest. The maps themselves are still worth points after digging them up.

    I have found that T-Maps, MIB's, Crap I've saved and stored over the years on other shards, IDOC's and other things make for GREAT points. Mostly having gathered gifts and rewards on all the shards for many, many, many years has given me the most points.

    Doing Peerless bosses and tossing the stuff like the little trees you get from Lady M.. the Tray from Travisty and such gives good points....

    Stealing, baby! That how I made my points I have a GM thief that wears the SD Leggings and jewels to get him to 120. I run doom, Dojo, Yomotzu Mines, underworld, and abyss stealing my weaselly black arse off! However since they changed the point values, I don't know if you get that much or not. Still its a fun way to get points.

    Also, if you have a lot of relic fragments, do the Ter Mur quest for the 120 imbuing scrolls. Every 500 relic frags will give you 25K points.
    Alternatively, if you have way too much essence, doing the quest for the 115 scrolls is also an option. Every 500 essence will net you 5K turn in points.

    Mystic spell weaver with 5 summoned pixies and an undead slayer book in the dark guardian room. With 12 guardians all dropping 1-3 level maps each round is worth 600-3000 points. At roughly 1 round every 2 minutes that is 18,000 to 90,000 points per hour.

    yeah, that's what i was going to suggest. you get 1 point for every 100 gold you turn in.

    old gifts from holidays, valentines day, etc, give huge points. a 10th anniversary gift box will give you 6500 points!

    If it's something in particular you really want my suggestion would be to spam in Gen Chat that your buying it and be reasonable someone with a ton of points might just grab it for you.

    Another couple ways I've earned points: Trapdoor spiders drop a few items that make them worth while to hunt. And exodus dungeon, collect power crystals and clockwork assemblies to turn in.

    some of the useless Peerless drops is the way I prefer to get my points up. even the 'untranslated tomes' and other small items. Scoop 'em up off the corpse (especially after it goes public since no one takes those things) and drop 'em in.

    I am trying to determine the value of "selling" items on vendors that people may want to buy for clean up. What would be the ratio there? If it is 100 gp/1 clean up point ... For example a snow globe is worth 8000 clean up points if you trash it. So then should it's sale price be 800,000 gold? I have seen the globes for sale as low as 240,000 gp's. Just trying to figure out the "reverse" I hope this makes sense ... trying to determine if I should trash or try to sell items on vendors.

    What I normally do is check an item from clean-up against others using vendor search then price mine accordingly. I don't think there is a ratio that can be used as its all about supply and demand. I have paid 4-5m for the clean-up dyes in the past, yesterday I wanted some to dye some armour and noticed I could buy them for 2.5m.

    Idocs are the way to go. Old gift boxes , the old jewlry and clothing with bless , invis, strength, cursed arties, aos clothing, old Christmas items, Valentine's items. I've gotten 2 or 3 million points from one doc before.


    Other than that the dark guardian room in doom like Merus said.

    If you are turning in invis items as turn in points, you have wasted a fortune that you could have made off of me (and a few others). Those do not spawn anymore, so once they're gone, they're gone.

    How do you know what the hue value is on a box? Probably something simple that I just do not know.

    If you're using Pinco's EC, the Get Hue ID is under Actions - Other. You pull it onto a hot bar slot to use it.

    bless earrings / boots / sash are worth keeping. i buy / use those alot. they like a lieut sash or stat boots on steroids. also a decent market for fully charged curse / bless items just as rares. the protection ones (if boots or earrings) also kinda cool for the plus 10 parry skill they give. only ones i personally trash are nightsite and spell reflection. maybe invis items if theyre not a good slot, but even those i tend to use until the charges get low.
