What benefit is there to be a vet? - None of the stuff over 3 or 4 years old has any use because better have been introduced, or the few pieces who still do constantly drop in value because they still spawn - All the stuff you crafted is junk: no except Bonus from Arms Lore, no possibility to imbue stuff made of old material, and any Kelps or Valkyrie armor you fish is twice better anyway. - All the skills you spent a hard time working on have been regularly getting easier and easier to train (First GGS, then removal of anti-macro code, then scrolls of Alacrity, then scrolls of Transcendance) or not needed (first items with skill bonuses, then the same but extremely easily imbuable) - The most useful vet rewards are the 1st year ones (Soulstones, Crystal teleporters, Commodity Box) and any old reward you may have chosen some years ago is worthless (Dye tubes, Vet cloths) On the other hand, miss a couple (or all) of the more recent events and you get: - No possibility to get any good equipment for the back slot (No Cloak Of Augmentation, no Cloak Of Rejuvenation) and you are severely limited for the robe slot (No Cloak of Power/Life/Death, No Conjurer's Garb) - No possibility to build a high end Luck suit (No Leurocian Mempo, no Bleue jewelry, no Conjurer's Garb) - A recipe to feed a major pet impossible to get because you can't raise loyalty toward Ophidians anymore => This one is actually the worst because you can't even buy that from other players (the loyalty, not the recipe, but in practice you can't buy the recipe either) It's really weird because there really is some kind of magic line in time around mid-2008 where everything you have done before is pointless, but if you missed some or all of the events since then you're screwed. And curiously I can't think of any counterexample. I really love the game but what is the logic behind this?
