    probably a different list for everyone but for me all these are MUSTS for turnins:

    blackrock
    books of truth (not the stealable)
    pink champagne
    pirate wine bottles
    rubble

    Blue crystallized essence (since the Magincia rebuild use which was promised, never occurred).

    Fish Monger Quests "Rare" Books rewards.

    Rarer books must give a LOT more points than more common books since they were gotten, often, at the expense of NOT getting a much more worthy fishing powerscroll.......
     
  7. :lol:

    You MUST get points for pink champagne?
    More or less for Rubble?

    whatcha talking about willis?

    Gonna trash ALL thangs IF you don't get your musts?
    Gonna stockpile the missing items, and sternly wait for "profit"?

    pffffft! :rant2:

    List with points FIRST ...
    then get inline with your MUSTS ... /simple:party:

    I'd really rather not see plants become a turn-in item. It makes it pointless to try to run a plant shop when you're not sure if the people buying the stuff that it took you weeks/months to cross-pollinate to or to collect seeds for and then raise are just being purchased for speculative purposes or to actually decorate their home.

    I'd suggest that if you're holding onto plants you don't want, find a local crafter that will buy them from you at a reasonable price to turn into reeds for baskets or clippings for dye or who might actually be able to sell them to a recently returned player who wants them to decorate their house.

    Just my two cents. But if I see plants on the turn-in list, I'm immediately shutting down my plant vendor and it'll stay closed until the turn-in is disabled. Yeah, I know it's a pretty meaningless threat, especially because so few people play on Siege, but that's going to be my way of protesting!! I'm not about to see an in-game profession I spend two or three hours on each day trying to make the game a little more beautiful, a little more interesting just go into the discard bin so someone else can get a new piece of pixel crack.

    Chill out Tina Small, I seriously doubt plants will be on the list and if so... players are not so dumb as to toss in special plants you took alot of time growing especialy on Siege.

    I would like to see:
    Fishing items (bones globes pictures etc.. chests, nets, and the drops in said chests)
    T maps (new and used)
    Small pieces of blackrock .... this one we need
    Stealables from all areas this includes artifacts 1-12
    gift boxes and gift items this includes cards and candy. (2 million lockdowns on boxes alone I bet would be cleared...)
    there is soo much to add but my mind is drawing a blank for more.....

    Not to be a wisea$$ but I dont really think things that are easily obtained like a simple plant or some fished up items and blackrock (maybe the big pieces) would be wise to be put on a clean up list...
    The rubble I can see, the crystals and the artifacts sound about right(although they are still obtainable but not wanted) if thats what the devs are thinking. We have things like ophidian rations, snake skins and other unnecessary things in the game that's clogging the ole drain IMO hehe :)

    For gods sake dont post them on here!
    You know for a fact if you post them then they will be taken off the hand-in list.
    Just keep quiet for a few more weeks then complain.....If you got blackrock taken off the list i'll hunt you down and put my extensive supply on your doorstep and say the words..........:sword:

    Blackrock no. There is way too much blackrock in the game because it doesn't decay. The only way to get rid of blackrock is to throw it in a trash barrel.

    I've been hoarding. I also have loads and loads of blackrock but I don't think it's wise to have it on the list for any real point value. I don't think many people have any idea just how much blackrock is in the game.

    Maybe at 1 point per blackrock is okay! Blackrock has been scripted into oblivion and it's actually a hindrance to scripters. They have so much of it they don't know what to do with it so if Blackrock was to become a turn in item many many players who have a field day and cash in. I think for 1 point it would be okay it would negate and be worth it but I doubt the incentive would be there for players to turn it in at such a low return but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    The entire point of the clean up was to have less items on the servers and decrease the 'lag' in the game.

    Personally I think the "Clean Up Brittania" should be a 24/7/365 similiar to the Vesper Museum, Moonglow Zoo, Britain Library. That way in 3 years from now players, like myself, won't be crying foul and asking the DEVs to turn on the spring clean up and take up more of their time and resources. It's a system that should be in place all the time.:thumbup1:

    One thing I would like to see make the list is the Bloody Werewolf Sashs. If there worth something I may consider turning them in.

    Many items ironically due to the Spring Clean Up become rarer and harder to find and actually increase in value.

    How about two sets of Spring Cleaning, one with more "common" items, and one with "rarer" items. The idea is to get things out of the system, so I'd say have blackrock in at a decent value so people trash it.. but on the other hand, people would continue to hard the more valuable stuff then... so two sets of rewards... one for cheap items, one for expensive items. Potential.

    Good idea! I agree with getting items out of the game and providing enough incentive for people to clean up their stuff.

    Finding the right balance for items such as blackrock goes along way to making all the rewards worthwhile.

    Last time around they did that Quest event and people created trial accounts and farmed Spring Clean Up Points in Perpetuity. Yes I know trial accounts have been fixed but it kinda tarnished the rewards overall im my opinion.

    Blackrock in my opinion has the potential to do the very same thing.:thumbdown:

    I don't think many players have an idea of how much of that stuff is lying around on the ground in some people's homes.

    I guess in the end it really doesn't affect me if some guy turn a boatload of blackrock and gets a billion spring clean up points.

    It really doesn't effect me so I shouldn't worry about it but there is something about being able to turn in a 'resource' I don't like.

    Should we be able to turn in boards and ingots too? Nightshade?

    Blackrock falls into the resource category in my book.

    Red ones as well - these too now have no use. Could put the yellow on too but doubt if many of those would get turned in unless they had very high points.

    I am hoping Virtue armour does NOT make the list eh Madrid

    Mardrid Europa was building an army so friends sold him their spare armour parts cheap to help out

    only to find out he is stickpiling for spring clean, reputation destroyed due to greed

    so like i say VIRTUE ARMOUR OUT

    that would make my day!

    bitter?, hell yeah!, Cry? no
     
  21. Turn ins... blah. A waste of time and resources.

    Id rather have random adventure and find new stuff.

    Can't wait to seek out the turn in vendor...


    Things to turn in... how about the crap from last years turn in.

    And all the stuff I have that I can sell for profit.

    Is this a serious thread?


    I hope to God, the Devs don't announce the turn in items.



    and definately all those chocolate candy valentines, I have 5000. I can't believe they gave them to us with nothing to do but eat them. Finally, a purpose for those chocolate candy morsels. I hope they are worth 5k in point each.

    The original clean up Britannia had turnips on the list. Easily obtained isn't that big a deal unless the point value for said item is too high. I think turnips were 2 points each at the time.

    What NEEDS to be a turnin for spring cleanup beyond a shadow of a doubt?

    LETS TRY what needs to be IN THE REWARDS form the spring cleaning!!!!

    I just hope the DEVS have got the balls to add the highly known duped items/art work such as the 2 story talking statues, scaffold, etc.....hell call it a replica if u really must ....but please have the balls again to replicate the highly duped item/art work of the past.

    Treasure Map Book (BOD equivalent but with Treasure Maps)

    I wouldn't mind seeing Daemonic Crisis Statuette on the list.
     
  34. I'd love to get something cool from Spring Cleaning, but unfortunately, I throw out useless stuff (or sell cheaply so it goes away fast). Chucked all my chocolates into trash long ago. Dropped little blackrock pieces as soon as they fell into my bag (kept a few insured pieces on spawners of course). Sold off all the old Christmas/Valentines/Thanksgiving/Easter/Halloween junk I had when the holiday rolled around the following year.

    So, I'm not complaining, I get the bonus of always having plenty of space in my house, and of course I got a little coin from selling off the extraneous junk. But if there are some cool prizes in the clean-up event, I hope there's some way for non-hoarding-packrats like myself to earn them. So, congrats to anyone who's got 200 Jack-o-Lanterns or Ankh Pendants lying around. Should be fun, which is the most important thing.

    Remind me, how did non-hoarders participate? I remember i basically used it what it was for, throwing out junk around my house, but i also dont just keep a bunch of useless stuff around.

    Like a said in another post, i really hope any rewards for this are basically deco. Last cleanup were ok, mostly deco, the sorcerers suits werent anything special. I just dont want to have to buy some uber limited time item for my characters because i dont have a house full of trash :)

    After I got rid I mean turned in all of my UO hubbys stuff to make more room for my stuff. I went, and killed creatures to get things that I knew were on the turn in list. Low ended paragons, ophidillians, things like that.
    Basicly just wait to see whats on the turn in list, and take it from there.
    I wish it was only deco items, but that is being selfish, when others like to collect weapons, and armor sets.

    ( UO hubby is dreading this clean up) LMAO !!!!!
    UO Hubby: Why cant i get in this chest.

    Everything in the game should count except food/resources (ingots,leather etc) because I don't know about ya'll but I have stuff that REALLY needs to go but I haven't had the heart to toss it (hoarding...burried alive lol) WAY back in the old days when I got my singing ball, it seems that I was able to toss tons of different things to get that and it was still really hard to get. Just don't make the point system so ridiculous that you HAVE to throw out that favorite set of armor to get a decent gift. SO, anything except food/resources IMO

    The VirtueBane Crystals & Sashes would be nice. Also: Magincian Threads (I do not have enough to turn-in to get the cloaks) & Cloaks of Corruption- I have more of these than I know what to do with.

  47. In the future can we get 1 holiday gift per account.

    That would help with this silly event.

    Maybe cut spawn rate down on items too.

    Maybe add decay.

    Maybe add usuage and destruction.

    I guess it is just me that finds this silly.

    Maybe you would like it if the devs just deleted all items all together and we just run around naked and beat each other silly with our fists?

    Power scrolls. The spawn drops that are from champion spawns, all of them.

    Artifacts of all types, doom, peerless, ML, etc.
     
  50. Yes that is what I must have meant when I said decrease the rate and use up stuff/breakage.

    Give me a break.
    Your right I need an event to turn in my 5000 pieces of valentines chocolate I have been hoarding for fear it would become rare or have a special purpose.


    No offense to you. Just saddens to see the game decline over the years. Hopefully the THE BIG CLEANUP will be the next expansion and bring players back.
