    Ridable Tarantula sounds cool :) And T Rex Statue! Wish they would just go ahead and make the T Rex tamable at stat loss to make another 5 slot that rival'd the Greater Dragon. I LOVE DINOSAURS!!

    So, would only take 150 Verite 20 Exc bods to get a single bottle of pof.

    I think its literally better to just take the gold.

    @Bleak Can we get points on test center so we can actually test and play with some of these things without having to turn in 200 bods.

    They'd have to get rid of the T-Rex's "fear" ability though. I'm all for pets comparable to a Greater (that don't require jumping through hoops like the Dragon Turtle), but that ability would be too OP for a pet.

    It can be made to look ethereal with a retouching tool to look much better than the brown model (IMO).

    LOL for real? I just read the notes and got excited about the ability to save up points for rewards you want instead of it being completely random, but LOL. That's absurd.

    A 20 Verite Exc Norse helm Bod gets you 750 Points, which is way enough for a single bottle of pof. You cant save the 750 points tho. Only the 3.75 fraction points you would get for it. And you lose all points you dont use of the bod you directly take the points of. So you can still just do the right Bods for the right reward and use the points. For the crappy Bods you save the fraction points. No idea if 0.5% of the points you could get is the right amount, who it should be.

    Can you still get PoF the old way, by turning in the correct BOD?

    My thoughts:

    The tables and new crafting add-ons are nice! The alchemy tables looks pretty good in game so YAY!

    The lanterns cannot be turned on when they are locked down in a house :(

    New dyes? Very bright....

    Here's most of the new stuff with me wearing the new Zento Orchid Natural Dye

    newstuff2.jpg
    The other 3 colors

    Dyes.jpg

    Now for the tree....

    while you did move the gifts closer together, which is AWESOME thank you! The perspective is still WAY off.

    You are looking at the tree from the side, yet the gifts from more of a top angle...should be more like this: (Don't hate on my leet paint skillz)

    treepersp.jpg

    Now for the worst of them? (sorry)
    Spider.jpg

    First, the *Shadow* looks more like a black outline, it't too stark.

    Front view looks pretty awesome! Rear View? Not so much...looks like the rider is about to fall off the back end of the thing...and it's too circular, looks kind of....naughty lol.

    Side View? Not good....I get the legs on the far side...but the legs on the closer side are farther apart, so the legs on the far side should be too, and the rider should be seated in between those legs, not so close to the rear.

    The graphic of the spider by itself is awesome, very well done, looks like it's supposed to! Kudos on that!

    Okay, so you have 2 Options when you turn in a bod.

    You can either Claim 1 reward up to the value of the bod OR have a fraction of the points added to your rewards "pool"

    So, Any bod that is above POF you can choose to claim POF, Etc etc etc.

    You can't mine while mounted so that makes sense.

    The big red ball thing is still a bit out of place but overall it doesn't look too bad once you have it in a house.

    Well...I can't really see it being easy to haul a big shovel and dig up heavy rock while you're on a mount....you'd more then likely fall off and knock yourself out with the shovel! lol

    The tarantula by itself is okay, but riding it looks...odd. The hoofbeat sounds it plays is just wrong...we need a new, softer-sounding multiple tap riding sound.

    The food on the buffet table looks like stickers. The dining table looks great, but the candles don't light up/animate...

    The "fermentation vat" desperately needs to be named as such, right now it’s just called "barrel." In the default EC, double clicking it just opens a container gump. It either needs instructions, or a gump like the distillery. The context menu doesn’t cut it. :pint:

    The BBQ Smoker needs to be removed from hyperspace and slowed down to a rational speed. :facepalm:

    What do the sculptures DO when they start glowing? They play a sound when clicked on, the glow goes away, but you receive no message. :eyes:

    As @Larisa said, the packages under the hideous Christmas tree look better, but the tree itself is still hideous and malformed. FIX THIS. :thumbdown:

    The canopy of the plum tree is in its own alternate universe where players must be looking up (particularly when the branches randomly pop through). :cursing:

    The world tree addon is pretty cool, and doesn’t float off the floor like the codex. :heart:

    So here is one of the big Christmas trees which are part of the festival:

    Big_Trees.png

    These are decorated way better than the snow trees, but share its inexplicable and visually unappealing lean to the left and abnormally visible/tall trunk. They are also somewhat blurry. SIGH.

    @Kyronix I told a friend that there were purple lama zombies at the Brit Graveyard. DevilsOwn went to the Graveyard and they look like zombies to her. I told her it must have been a patch thing. She logged off and got the patch. Logged back in and the Zombies were Purple Lamas. There were changes to art images in the patch. I got the message while I was patching about art work missing.

    @Kyronix... you show up to ask Dot about the tree, but do not mention whether we can get tables from the horn of plenty now. :(

    I just do not want to use up all my charges and have to recharge, one per day... if it isn"t active until 95 hits all shards please say so.:Begging:

    Crafting Failure Protection Talisman
    • Prevents loss of materials on failure
    • Available with additional crafting related properties
    SS_649.jpg


    Was hoping to see new methods that can increase the success chance of making say composite bows - consistently.
    Right now at best you get around 73% with talisman. That makes the reforging process slow and annoying. (you know, making 15 at a time, then mouseover to pick out non-exceptionals)
    And with this new reward also being a talisman...these cannot help further (and there are already many better talismans from heartwood quests) And there are also enough resource in the world for any crafters to care about material loss -- for a charge limited item.
