    Has anyone used this new item from the UO Store? Is it only good for so many uses and/or time and then you have to purchase more?

    Thanks!

    it was used for the Treasures of Khaldun last year.
    it gave you a bonus towards points from killing creatures.
    basically boosted your drop rate, for turn ins

    Thanks! I didn't use those last year. How long do they last?

    1 hour. Which, to be honest, is too short for the price.

    But people will still buy them.

    Was fine last year when you could pop it at the start of the champ spawn when there was plenty of stuff to be killing and you got loads of goodies... but this year it's stupid short because it'll proabably take you and hour just to find a pirate or something to kill .... take most of that time killing it too.... especially if you aren't a tamer with good pets and don't have 3 or 4 people doing it... Maybe it might be ok if you waited to hit the bottle till you went on a corgul run or something but to do that while killing scalis or charybdis it would be a waste... should last 5 hours that might make it worth while but for an hour? Not worth it.

    You can kill 3-4 scalis in an hour if you and some friends use ship cannon on them, and toss nets quickly (typically, when I host white net hunts for my tiny shard, the leviathans die in about 1-2 minutes).

    Scalis without cannon can take an hour or more each.
