Bugged and Inappropriately Assigned Turn In Value for Cleaning of Britiania

    Overall, I think most of the turn in value for the current cleaning event is fair. However, there are some items whose turn in value was either bugged or way off. Here they are:

    1) The set of Snow Scene (globe) named after Britiania cities, such Britian, Skara, as such, have no turn in value. These are the oldest holiday snow globes so they are expected to have higher values than the newer globes.

    2) Paragon and Treasure of Tokuno minor arties should be valued higher than 100 points per. They are either discoutinued or harder to obtain than low level treasure maps, which are valued at a few hundred points each.

    3) crimson cinture was valued at 100 points. It is a ML major arty and shouldn't be valued as 1/100 a firework wand (from 6th anni bag).

    4) Leurocian`s Mempo Of Fortune with 300 luck is from a previous Halloween event and shouldn't be valued at 100 points per.

    Of course, few people will turn in 3) or 4) because of their high gold value. They are listed to show how off some values are based on difficulty and rarity.

    Tell us what other values that you think are off. I'd be interested to know.

    Leurocian's mempo was a ToT, not Halloween. But I agree with all your comments.

    Oddly enough, I have several original holiday timepieces that are valued at 8000 points apiece. But one, with the exact same name, appraises as being worth nothing.

    I find it strange that cloak of corruption is valued 2000 points but cloak of life/death/power are only 400 each.
    If I remember correctly it took 10 threads to turn a cloak of corruption into a cloak of life/death/power.
    The threads only are 900 points each in the turn in. So I donĀ“t see the logic here.

    Are you sure that the turn in value is only based on the item's rarity?
    As it is a cleanup event, it would make sense to get rid of items that people are hording the most.

    Commemorative plate and coin have no or very little value, yet there must be alot of them around. Also Whispering Rose has no value.

    The items you cited aren't assigned a high value presumably because the developers don't want you to throw them away for points - they're great items and if people started tossing them, their rarity would increase, value increase, and even less people would have them.

    (Other than the snow globes, I think that's an oversight)
