Wyrom Publishes Revised CCF Schedule and Some Details – May 2 2018

Mayhem Master Wyrom updates the schedule of major services for CCF and clarifies details. Smithy open all weekend. Plus: Dragonbones looks likely! Sunday there will be a small selection of minor services, but probably not in the evening.

Subj: The Service Schedule: More Details
Here is the MAJOR services schedule with details and quantity. Customizations, the Glamour Tattoo, and EzScripts are a delayed service. Body features more be sort of delayed, because that just might take a little bit to get through, and I don’t want people missing out on another service. More details on this closer to the event. Everything else must be redeemed after you win it.

I removed Living/Undead morphing tattoos from the MAJOR list. It has been replaced with the Glamour Tattoo. The time slots were changed around a little, with Friday having Black Ora and White Ora weapons added to additional slots. Quantity and time slots might be subject to move once more before the event opens. If an error is present in this chart, I apologize in advance.

FAQ

Q) Are there any costs to enter CCF?
A) No, but you must have a paid subscription. If you’re F2P or on a promo, you won’t be able to enter.

Q) What if my item needs to have a property removed to apply the service?
A) As long as the property is not an inherited item property (ex. white ora being holy), overwriting the property should be possible.

Q) How is this CreatureBane different than others offered?
A) This one isn’t a group of creatures like Ithzir, Extraplanar, or Undead. This one specifically targets one creature archetype. Bandits and Grimswarm are considered one creature archetype in this example. But outside that you’ll be picking things like war griffins (not all griffins) or Ithzir champions (not all Ithzir). Flares can be any of the common or uncommon flare choices.

Q) What spells are available for [service]?
A) I’ll publish a list by Friday this week.

Q) What resistances are there?
A) Slash, crush, puncture, heat, cold, electric, plasma, disrupt, impact, balance, grapple, vacuum, acid, steam, disintegration, and nature.

Q) What does premade item mean?
A) For the weapons, you pick a weapon profile and the item is created. For the X/day items, you can pick a worn location (or not worn at all).

Q) Can I add the weight reduction script if I don’t already have it?
A) Yes. You can also add the 5% to an existing one to make it even better.

Q) Can you give any prices yet?
A) Pricing is going to be difficult to share because combat effectiveness is going to play a role in how much something costs. If you have 9x wondrously crit weighted RotFlare returning axe and want to enchant that to 10x, be prepared to pay probably some of the highest silver costs you’ve ever witnessed. We’re going to try to stabilize the cost differences between weapon profiles and armor profiles, but it won’t be a flat cost. The selection process for a service will not be included in the cost of the service except for services that are auctioned. I can tell you right now, the Glamour Tattoo will be auctioned. For things with more of a flat fee, I’ll try to get those out there soon.

Q) Can we get some clarity for the surcharges?
A) Okay, after thinking about all this, we’re going to standardize how the surcharge works, and I’ll disclose the upper tier numbers. The surcharge is going to follow the item, not the account. Services that are not item based will follow the character (like spell preps and tattoos). The surcharge for multiple services to a single item/character service will be 5mil, 25m, 125m, and 625m. After this point, if you think you can afford another one, we’ll have to figure out how to proceed because banks can’t hold that much silver without breaking the game. Again, you might think the surcharge is silly, but it’s a middle ground over 1 win and nothing more.

Q) Will there be any sort of item limits per account?
A) Due to the surcharge change, this is still TBD.

Awesome! Thank you for all of the information. This is helpful.

Just a couple more questions:

>Rune Tattoos
Given that a single rune tattoo can hold up to 6 spells… if we have an existing tattoo with open slots, can we just add to it rather than getting a new tattoo?

>AS Bonus
Is this melee AS only? Or does it work on bolt AS too?

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule: More Details
Definitely confused now on what limitations there are now for multiple wins per character/account/item as well as how passing items and/or silvers will be done.

Going off the FAQ it makes me believe the ONLY restriction is now tied to the ITEM or character if a customization service? All else is removed?

“How do these details on surcharges jive with the handing off of item limits, and/or where did we end up on that front?” — Menos

Looks like the surcharge follows the item–so if Menos gets work, he pays the fee; if Menos hands it to Krakii, Krakii pays the fee +5M surcharge; if Krakii hands the item to Ardwen, he pays the fee +25M [Tier2 surcharge]–and it’s 5M, times-5 each tier.
Someone let me know when the 3.125-Billion surcharge gets paid, I wanna see that….

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule: More Details
If that is the case, it is a pretty drastic reduction in the teeth of any attempt to spread around the services beyond a few and a like equal increase in people standing for spots just to sell.

I’ll find out.

>>Is this melee AS only? Or does it work on bolt AS too?

It adds some to bolt, it’s weird.

>>Going off the FAQ it makes me believe the ONLY restriction is now tied to the ITEM or character if a customization service? All else is removed?

The specific silver surcharges mentioned will follow the item or the character-bound service. As for service limits, you may have missed an edit after I made the post.

Q) Will there be any sort of item limits per account?
A) Due to the surcharge change, this is still TBD.

>>What is included in familiar customization? Does it include the ambient scripting since the Plat customization of 920 does not?

Yes, it’s a full familiar customization.

Dragonbones??????????????? Just to kill off this pile of silvers I have when I miss all the raffles πŸ™‚

From: KRAKII
Subj: Re: The Service Schedule: More Details
Seems like it’s pretty easy for most top-end people to get two services to the same really choice item, if they want. (Pay two costs, plus one 5M surcharge.)

On the other hand, low-value people–like me with my 5M [YAAAY, I can pay one surcharge… just, you know: no service] or Wyrom with his 10M or Luxelle with her 15M–are at least within striking distance of being lucky. (Chosen by a spinner, and getting one of the modest services on a pretty plain item.)

.

But, should it come to pass that there are some deep pockets out there who WANT four/five/six services on the same item, well, go crazy!
Pay four/five/six costs…
plus three [== 155M]/four [== 780M]/five [== 3.905B] surcharges…

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule: More Details
So should we just try and enter the ones we really really want to the exclusion of all other offerings since nothing can be passed, items or silvers? Or is the charge/prohibition for doing this gone and services counted/limited per item or char if customization?

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule: More Details
Questions:

* If I win a premade item and later win an enchant for that same item, does the enchant have the surcharge?

* Should this say Tier 2 and 1?: “Briar Weapons 5 and 10 Tier 2 and 3 Briar weapon. Weapon is premade.”

* I know what an X/day magic item is, but what’s an X/day enhancive? Activate it to get an enhancive for a limited time?

We are still deciding whether we’re going to limit it to one per account or do some other sort of scaling surcharge on number of wins separate from the item/character-bound stuff.

When the service says Runestaff Flares Acuity (4x) or mana (+2)

Is that on top of the Acuity and mana already on a runestaff or only applicable for a runestick without it?

Thanks

>>Wyrom, here’s a question about the creature bane. If you choose an undead creature, say warped tree spirits, will it work on that creature without a bless? Sort of undead bane functionality, for that single type of undead creature, only?

Only undead bane is permablessed. Everything else will require a bless.

>>Will tempering items be able to be worked on by the partial enchant merchant? I have some armor that will be on the 9th and final step during this event but won’t be ready in time.

Enchanting won’t be a delayed service. Shoot me an email so I can look at the item.

>>Is that on top of the Acuity and mana already on a runestaff or only applicable for a runestick without it?

This is accumulative. Both flare types have a cap though.

>>Any word on what else is currently planned to be auctioned?

It’s mostly up to the merchant working the services. Premade items and services are more likely to be auctioned.

Actually this should hit the creature without a bless.

I thought it was a feature of being limited to a single creature type, where the bane/script hit it regardless.

At RtCF I added a bane to Scatter liches on a blessable axe and definitely could hit them without a bless. I noticed when the bless wore off and it was not hitting the soul siphons but was liches and further Voln blessed & 119ed axe to check.

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule: More Details
This is more of a feeling-out question, not looking for hard numbers or anything, but…

Are the prices of CCF services for lower end gear relative to Duskruin pricing of the same services?

To illustrate…

At last DR, adding Ironwright or +TD would cost 175k bloodscrip no matter what, so it might have been worthwhile for 9x T3 ensorcelled SWCW/SWCP, but also much less attractive for 4x vanilla.

At CCF, pricing is more dependent on what’s being worked on, so could adding those services to a lower end item be significantly cheaper than the silver equivalent of 175k bloodscrip or would it still start off at that more expensive range just because Ironwright/+TD are supposed to be rare?

“or would it still start off at that more expensive range just because Ironwright/+TD are supposed to be rare?”

I would definitely expect not. Ironwright didnt charge much for adding his flares to 4x weapons in the past. I think the duskruin was the exception, not the rule, because it was sold in certificate form, which means it could be added to really highend items.

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule: More Details

Leafiara i guess there is a 50m opportunity cost though for adding ironwright to a 4x weapon. Since it sounds like they are going to allow passing, and you could probably sell your spot for 50m. But the direct cost of adding ironwright to a 4x weapon should be low.

That’s my expectation too, but I just want to double check to be sure. I’d go for services like Ironwright or the rare flares if it was possible to get them cheaply enough, but if not then I’d rather save a larger reserve of silvers for things like the coraesine or X/day items that I’m even more interested in.

Yes as far as I understand, Duskruin Certificates were priced super high due to the ability to add them to VERY high end items.

A less high end item, much like with W/P/S, I’d expect to cost significantly less. But, this is only a guess and only as far as I understand.
