My experience with any of the "crates" was that in order for the semi rares to respawn, the crate had to be emptied. At least for the Serpents Hold smithy shop, the items in there are so heavy now, that it's just not worth my time to empty them anymore.Hi! I played this game back in 98 and 99 when it first came out, then left for about 10 years. This is my second day back, so to find this thread was awesome! I got the fruit basket this morning, but I just tried all the crates at the smithy shop in Serpents hold and NOTHING of interest was in the crates. Just some ore and such. Did I do something wrong, or is it not guarenteed to spawn there? I can't remember. Also, the dried flowers/herbs- I went there yesterday in Moonglow and couldn't find any crates at all to open... just a lock box, and when I unlocked that and went through all the traps, it was for some garbage not even worth wasting my healing potions on!! Any help would be great, I can't seem to remember anything anymore!
