  1. bought shyhermit for a freind

    Far be it for me to agree with the author of this silliness in any way, shape or form, much less interfere with the rest of us (including me) who tune into this thread for our morning chuckle to go along with the Java, (apologies for posting when I have nada to contribute to the original context of the thread). Moohaps it is time to move on from NASA, CIA, Mensa, Secret Agent Land?
  2. Antlers

    There is one thing that I can think of for not making them stackable. Sometimes a Contest requires that the participants prove that they have brought no items to the party. 36 Antlers are a very cheap and easy method to ensure this. Cheers! Ferny (edited for a DoH moment!)
  3. Global Quest FAQ

    I am trying to make a special potion. I need 10000 Gypsum of which I have 8256, 1200 Amber and I have 392, 50 Refined Vegetal Mixture of which I already have 18, and finally, 25 Orange of which I already have 2.
  4. I think this is a really brilliant idea. Thank you Maxine for initiating it, and thank you Sir_Odie for implementing it! One thing I really would like is for it to be able to be on-line all the time. I do think it's a large benefit to the Community and really could help getting players from many time zones engaged. Cheers! Ferny
  5. Removal/modification of rule 5

    IF multi is allowed, then the greater part of the impetus behind mini's is negated. If I remember correctly, they were implemented to defeat silver farmers. If they are no longer a concern, all I can say is \o/ As much as I would like to see mini's slip into the abyss, I have voted No. If you want to multi, and I surely understand the temptation, then the PK server is for you. Cheers! Ferny
  6. As has been suggested MANY times before on these forums, I'd rather see the Enchanted Swords have a real and serious benefit for their owners. To make them tradeable for harvesting items just cheapens them further IMHO. Either make them worth the cost of their ingredients or make them luxury items like the rose bouquets. *Waits for the howls of protest from the Thermal Serp Owners.*
  7. New Player Alchemy Event

    Second Event Planned for THIS Saturday! Same place - VotD Time http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20120630T18 Rules are the same except Maximum Alchemy level allowable is 45. The Contestants will be making Life Essences, so make sure to have read the book! Cheers!! (edited AGAIN to fix time *sighs)

  9. New Player Alchemy Event

    This Sunday, 17 June 2012 around 11:30 AM EDST (3:30 PM GMT) http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20120617T1630&p1=136 Come and get some FREE Alchemy Experience in a fast and fun Race! All ingredients and food will be provided. To keep things sane, there will be 20 Contestants only. Alts May be allowed, but please give the true new players first shot at a spot. The goal is to make as many Fire Essences from the ingredients as you can in the least amount of time. All ties will be decided by the clock. The Referee will have the final say. The prizes this time are geared to helping new players train their A/D, but none (that I know of ) require more than 1 nexus in Human. Rules: Open to new players whose Alchemy Level is less than 25. Meet at Valley of the Dwarves Storage. Your inventory must be completely empty. Have Fun! This is the first of two events as a run up to the 6th Annual Raffle which you can read about here: http://www.eternal-l...wtopic=56915= Look for the next one on Saturday, 30 June 2012. *edited to fix time* Cheers !!

  10. Global Quest FAQ

    Excellent, now I have everything. Go back to Master Jerun please and let him know.
  11. Expiring bots

  12. Enhanced Harvester Medallion

    Total thumbs up to this idea. Raistlin's idea of action points being used as, in essence, an Insurance Policy though is spot on. I have one issue though. Action Points regenerate at what 5-6 per hour with positive food? If each harvesting event took even one Action Point, I don't see how it would balance. It has been quite some time since I have had only 6 events in a full hour of harvesting anything. <edited for balance>
  13. I do not post often here, not because I don't care. Only because others say it better than I can. I want to suggest a new perk. One for Rounders. For players that have spent many hours developing more than a few skills, and for mid-level players as a way to encourage them to branch out and try new things, and for younglings as something to strive for if they have the time and the stamina. There's been the vaunted "Quad Club", (4 skills over 100) more recently there are even folks with five and I've heard whispers of more. Harvesting mini events are a blessing for younglings in terms of exp and extra gc. Harvesting mini events are a annoyance for a Mid-Level player. For a 100+ Alcher, they are a bane. More than an interruption to check that you aren't totally afk harving to gain gc. More than a check to see that you aren't just idly harving to pass the time while engaging in "important debate". They have their reasons and though many railed against them at first, we adapted. Requirements: At least 4 skills over level 100 No skill less than level 30 Benefit: No more mini harving events. Drawback: No more mini harving events. No extra gc, No extra harving exp. Cost: 30 Oranges - just like the Big Belly Perk I never said this should be easy. Thoughts? Flames? Ideas? Ferny
  14. Hoarding poll

    With Halberds taking 6 serpent stones and Dragon Blades two plus 6 Enriched Essies, it doesn't take long to go through a boatload of stones. Yes I have a few, but I'm always using or hunting for more. Ferny
  15. I believe that bots should be allowed to speak in local, but I'd like them to limit themselves to either a time interval or a % possibility of comment. I know this is possible.
