    [EM Asiantam]: just like a jewery case

    [EM Asiantam]: yes

    [EM Asiantam]: regardless of type of books if possible

    [Mesanna]: can you help me justify that item?

    [EM Asiantam]: right fantastic

    [EM Asiantam]: he is requesting for the Ethereal Eowmu

    [Mesanna]: we don't want to do that

    [Mesanna]: because the vet rewards are etheral

    [EM Asiantam]: understood

    [Mesanna]: we are not trying to by pass the stables

    [Mesanna]: which etherals do

    [Mesanna]: especially since we have increased the total by so much

    [EM Asiantam]: good evening

    [EM Asiantam]: about city stone

    [Kyronix ]: That is something we can look into

    [EM Asiantam]: thank you

    [Kyronix ]: As an additional funding stream to the City

    [Mesanna]: greetings

    [EM Asiantam]: yes

    [EM Asiantam]: she has a question about treasure box in Khaldun

    [EM Asiantam]: I thought you have removed lockpicks from them

    [EM Asiantam]: but they are still existing

    [EM Asiantam]: and

    [EM Asiantam]: it is so hard to get relic

    [EM Asiantam]: can you look into it?

    [Kyronix ]: The lockpicks can spawn naturally

    [Kyronix ]: But as far as the special rewards in the chest, the lockpicks don't come from there

    [Kyronix ]: For the relics - they are rare

    [EM Asiantam]: too rare

    [EM Asiantam]: maybe...

    [EM Asiantam]: hehe

    [EM Asiantam]: can she get 4 types of relics in 2 months?

    [Kyronix ]: It is certainly possible

    [EM Asiantam]: so there are no plan to change the rarity, right?

    [Kyronix ]: No plans to change rarity

    [Mesanna]: greetings

    [EM Asiantam]: do you know there are some shards which levers to the closed room have been disappeared?

    [Mesanna]: we are aware of it

    [EM Asiantam]: and also

    [EM Asiantam]: spawned boxes at the northern area of khaldun disappears

    [EM Asiantam]: when can we get it fixed?

    [Mesanna]: the boxes only stay visible for a period of time

    [Mesanna]: after detected

    [EM Asiantam]: so if she get it spawned inside the closed room

    [EM Asiantam]: she can never open it

    [EM Asiantam]: so it prevents to spawn another boxes

    [EM Asiantam]: that is her concern

    [EM Asiantam]: so when can we get it fixed?

    [Mesanna]: we can look into it

    [kuniko]: thanks

    [Mesanna]: do you have specific shards that its missing

    [sakura]: Hi

    [EM Asiantam]: he is asking you to create a dungeon specially made for mages

    [EM Asiantam]: because

    [EM Asiantam]: now every dungeon has too much advantage for warriors

    [Mesanna]: wind is for mages

    [EM Asiantam]: he is asking for mobs that only damaged by magic

    [EM Asiantam]: not by weapons

    [Mesanna]: Interesting

    [Mesanna]: nice idea

    [EM Asiantam]: or weight

    [EM Asiantam]: maybe

    [Kyronix ]: No, the only way is to document the kill with a hunting permit

    [EM Asiantam]: because he wants to make sure his target is heavier than the current one

    [Kyronix ]: Will have to use another permit

    [EM Asiantam]: thank you
