    I used to like rares. Not so much these days. I'm beginning to get a LOT of these empty ink bottles. Are they going to be used to heal Magincia?

    Good thing the ink bottles aren't rares then!

    The only things we really know about how we are going to heal and rebuild Magincia is the stuff that was mentioned in the recent fiction.

    The exact game mechanics of doing it are not-yet-known.

    I'm thinking it'll be at least a week, if not a tad more, after the "Ranger of the Abyss" plot is settled before it starts.

    Hopefully the bad reactions to the new Faction system, which is (we have been told) a critical part of the new global plotline, will not delay it unduly.

    I was thinking that since the bottles contain "Ink" that they might be used as a one time shot to dye some sort of parchment ie runebook or spellbook.

    Ya man I'm all for it. I think New Mag would look cool with some ink:

    How about your character gets a Mike Tyson-ish Face Tat in the color of ink within the bottle?

    I think the ink bottles will just be momentos of all the times I missed getting the abyss house :)

    I still have a ton of blue crystals from the halloween quest. Kind of thought those were supposed to have a purpose for something coming up too.

    Awe... and here I was hoping that we'd somehow be able to "refill" them and use the dyes for things.

    Another missed opportunity for the poor alchemist/cook.

    Anyway that was my thought that we'd be able to create new dyes... the bottle always has the same color... it would be neat.

    But that's just my thought.

    Have a bottle bank in Brit to encourage the inhabitants to recycle. We could use the glass to make new windows for the poor peoples of Magthingcia.
