    I predict fellowship coins and fragments will be tossed on the ground freely after the initial selling frenzy of peoples hordes of them.

    @Khyro Thanks!

    1. Can I fight the battles that someone else used a fragment on and right before I am ready to claim a Tabard, drop a fragment on the shrine I want the Tabard to match?
    2. We dont have to worry about top contributor list? Loot rights means you got credit for that Battle? Yay. (I asked for that to help NOOBs and Returner NOOBs)
    3. Were the armor pieces difficult to get? If you do the 24 Battles to get the Cloak will you get a set or two?
    4. Does the Virtue Title add a new Title spot so you can keep the ones you have now?
    5. Are we able to get those Virtue Stones?
    6. I'll make a bunch of runebooks. How many of the areas for the quests can I make runes to?

    We went to at least two of the quest areas for EM Events and Shamino has been part of them. Thanks EM Thrixx!

    I would rather get more Tabards and Cloaks per toon since this is a one time event but, I'm fine with that.

    Love the Armor Color! Thanks to the testers for changing to a better one.

    It has been stated that this will be going on for months... so you could actually alternate this with doing Krampus and the Artisan Festival.

    I see this in a different way. Usually a lot of players return October thru December just for the Halloween Dungeon, Artisan Festival and Holiday Gifts/Krampus. For the first time, the players who hold down the shards and keep the player base entertained during the rest of the year got a reward. Take your drama and threats to quit with you. Bye Bye. IMO the other parts of Rising Tide should end when 107 goes WW.

    Absolutely! I hear it all the time, "I want to play casually, but I also want all of the rewards." If you want to play casually, you don't get everything, I don't see why that is so hard to understand. I consider myself a casual player, I don't have all the goodies. I just enjoy the time I spend playing. If it is so inconvenient to have to play the game to get all the new stuff, you really should quit. I always say that playing the game should be fun, all the stuff is just icing on the cake. If the game isn't fun for you... Don't play it.

    I was just reading over the pub notes and couldn't find anything that mentioned keeping a title.
    Is this something that you learned on the test shard?
    Just curious because Baja and Origin wouldn't even know that information until the end.

    I got the Compassionate Title on Origin by dropping a Frag at the Alter. I hadn't done the quest, nor did I kill any of the bosses (they didn't spawn because I hadn't done the quest)

    I got a title on Origin too but it doesn't appear the drop down titles menu. With no way to shut it off i just assumed that it was a temporary title that will go away after the event is over.

    I like Titles so I think it is cool. Maybe others do not want one that can not be removed. It better stay, the other event titles we earned can be chosen still. Looks like I will transfer a bunch of fragments to other shards just to get the Title.

    Maybe they will move it to the Titles menu when this is done.

    I'm sad there is no title for chaos. :( Nothing fits me. "Stinky Pete the Chaotic" would have been boss. None of this new stuff excites me, I'll never own a hawkwind's robe, so I have no real reason to participate in the new content. The new content, however, will draw players together in a few easy to scout locations, perhaps I can lighten their loads.

    On the bright side, I just logged in for a second to check my vendors and apparently, with the recent changes to my house I forget to lock down a chest which contained literally everything I owned. Now I get to get all new stuff!

    I am not really a titles fan could care less about them and often don't really care to have one... so not sure I care ... seems odd to give someone a title they can't control

    Thanks, it does seem that each shard has a randomized lute placement. I have updated the guide to indicate this.

    Does each char have to get their own amulet or can you give it to another char?

    I don't really own a whole lot. Had a wrestling SoT I was going to use in it. A 110 ninjitsu scroll. The rest I didn't really need. I can replace it all for 100k or less which I have so it's no big deal.

    I haven't had time to play in weeks, but maybe this Saturday morning. Nobody else is on a 5:30am. Can one solo a shrine battle?

    If this helps anyone i just found out that the quest is tied to the medallion and not the character.
    You'll notice the medallion will change to a different hue after the last step is completed. After that you can pass the medallion to other characters (even on different accounts) and it will work the same.

    Cheers!

    Note.
    You may want to buy (or make with your name on it) a Lute with high charges to do the quest. It has the Number of charges it starts with and is still usable. (if you have a bard)

    Can use Lolos Lute:

    So you are saying that once I complete the quest and get a tabard on one character, I can give the medallion to another character and they can do shrine battles and receive a tabard without having to do the quest since they have the correct medallion?

    Someone said the Silver Tincture works on the captains. Is that true. I was using my tamer and WoD so I cant tell.


    I you do the Quest on other Toons you get the Lute. So if that interests you.

    It's even different by shard AND by facet - at least that's the case on Europa - now we just have to find that "underground castle" someplace in Felucca also ;-)

    [EDIT]The Feluccan Sherry the mouse on Europa also refers to the castle Sallé Dacil in Ilshenar ... so there's probably no entrance to this 'thing' for our red 'community' ... ?![/EDIT]

    Dollar was on it big time all morning. I'll be honest, I did a stupid trade run. But as soon as people started asking, we both told them what to read to get started on the quest. The whole thing was too much to be typing in general chat all day over and over. I brought as many as I could to the shrines and the reward location, and told em to read. Also I warned everyone that popping into a shrine could be stepping into <you know what>. Only once did we gate into a large party that was ready to start.

    Okay, just to be sure, without High Seas, this whole event won't be possible? No other way to get those coins to get that item?

    do you have to keep the lute and notes in your backpack when you fight the shrine wars?
    or once the necklace has changed, you only have to wear it?

    Only need to wear the necklace to go in the Well to claim your rewards. You can pass it to other toons or do the quest with them to get more Lutes.

    You can put the Lute and notes away.

    You can make a real nice set of lutes tuned to Stones by making one out of each of the seven wood colors and running all seven of your toons through.

    the reason I asked is my main char had music notes and a lute.
    And both disappeared from her backpack
    And my crafter was wearing her necklace and it is now gone.
    but her lute and notes are still there

    but I was able to put on the necklace that my treasure hunter had...

    That's odd. The notes are blessed.
    If you have my backpack they would be buried under the 90 things I haul around for no reason.

    I have lost my gorget sooo many times in the mess when I forget to replace the necklace and die.

    Or you bring all lutes on one character and tune them all at the box. Saves a lot of time and effort! :wink:
