    With bless deeds being removed from the cleanup NPCs and replaced with another item, any guesses on that item?

    I know there were some dyes added, but surely those aren't it.

    It is basically a mannequin with inventory and hands out items to other players when the correct keyword is spoken near it. Not many people know but it is also an homage to Patrick Stewart from the development team.

    The should also update the items that can be handed in for points to include handouts from holidays and such since the cleanup started.

    Yes, it's a bald male npc and you can't customize its appearance, so it always stays as bald. When you try to rename it and press cancel, it returns to the default name of "Pat", so it becomes "Pat the Steward". We believe these are intentional, which we discovered while testing the new changes: [Feedback] - Publish 78 feedback | Stratics Forums We already have Darth Vader in Haven, so Captain Picard is not that surprising I guess.

    As I stated before, not necessarily Patrick Stewart, since the steward can also be female.
    customizing choices are male or female and human, elf or gargoyle.

    I already know it is not a homage to Patrick Stewart, I'm just kidding around. But it seems I did a good job finding the similarities since you now think it is "not necessarily" Patrick Steward :).

    I am not happy they took bless deeds away. I would prefer to have the Bless deed back far more useful.

    hmm..i can see bless deeds not cheaper than 10 Mil the next couple of days...and they will sell...which would be OK for this price since its the value you would have needed to drop in GP into trash...but i am afraid most people wont sell for 10 Mil...allthought i didnt see much demand on Pacific the last weeks only found a couple of them on vendors and was surprised i could grab them for 2 Mil each...my guess is they will go for easy 15-20 Mil now depends on the deman (if someone realy needs one very bad, will pay that price easy..) its kinda a rare now....
