    I know most of you sell your items but what have you kept for your own personal collections from this years batch of EM items. I'm curious too see what people's tastes are when it comes to collecting.

    These are a few of my favorites, that ive kept, or bought because they fit well in my 2 themed collections.
    May 31 - A Sapling Of The Life Tree Retrieved From The Center Of Sosaria
    Jan 27 - Noxious Daemon Blood (15)
    Jan 30 - Pure Aether Quintessence (20)
    Apr 21 - Erethian's Crystal Ball Crafted Of Purest Zanium (20)
    Mar 27 - Rare Poisonous Drevega Mushroom, Lethal In Large Doses To Those Touched By Magic (10)
    Jun 11 - Infernal Sproutlings Of The Roots Of Pride, Avarice, And Vanity (21)

    These are others that i see as the best overall for various reasons. I got a few of these drops but not all of them.

    Jun 17 - The Eternal Flame Of Sosaria (15) - timeless name, animated,
    Jun 21 - Time Is Not Important (Part 1) (10) When complete, will be a very impressive set. We have only seen 1 other EM item that i know of thats come in more than 1 piece that fits together for an overall effect of a very large item. Color looks very good, unusual yet fitting naming system. Il probably end up keeping this once set is complete.
    Jul 19 - Only Life Is Important (Part 2) (10)
    Mar 28 - Orc Tooth Necklace (10) in my opinion, the best "classic style" rare so far this season. good to see simple, oldschool style rares sometimes
    Apr 22 - A Rain Puddle Created By Magical Pixies To Help The Flowers Bloom (15) excellent use of color, graphic, name
    Jun 24 - A Playful Bottlenose Dolphin Unaware Of Any Danger (15) Its a dolphin, that about sums it up
    The Baja elemental rune set will also be very impressive when complete.

    Taper of Sacrifice is probably my favorite so far.

    I'll agree on Orc Tooth Necklace as the best "classic" style, the type I wish all drops were. :)
    A Rain Puddle Created By Magical Pixies To Help The Flowers Bloom has the long name I dislike, but the name doesn't make it too specific to use for deco and not feel out of place - good graphic, ok name, good drop.
    Infernal Sproutlings Of The Roots Of Pride, Avarice, And Vanity, great looking item, though the name is a bit of a turnoff to me; it's the reason I've not yet bought a few.
    Stoneheart Infused Crystal - a good short name, great looking item, it also functions as a ladder if placed right, from my own shard, and one of the last from my favorite EMs... plus I found and stole mine myself. All that puts this one in top spot for me. :)

    You didn't ask about least favorite items this year, but I'll answer anyhow - all 32 or so items (~20% of all drops this year!) with hue 2721. That gold color is ugly at best, and it is REALLY being overused and abused this year.
