Subj: HESS Updates
As I mentioned before, HESS will have a staggered opening by a full day of the event (June 16th at roughly 9pm ET). We’re also retiring Undead Bane, Weight Reduction, Hidden Bracers, and Troll Hearts. But we’re adding a lot more this time around.

We’re adding the following items:

* Blink certificates. (5 total)
* Enchants and Partial Enchants.
* Wandering Tattoos.
* Resistance. (limited to how many can go on a single item)
* Enhancive skill boosts certificate. (limited to how many can go on a single item)
* 6 month enhancive charges. (no spell knowledge)
* Low steel weapons and shield. (premade, 1 of each total)
* High steel weapons and armor. (premade, 1 of each total)
* Vial flares (health, mana, and stamina).
* Censer. (Grand Auction of 5116, 2 total. Back by request)
* Tier 3 Briar Flares certificate.
* …and a few new things should they roll out of QC in time.

We have the low/high steel equipment already made, but if there is a POPULAR choice we can switch it up before Thursday. We’re only doing 2 weapons total for each low and high. One shield for low and one armor for high. Keep in mind, they have a level requirement of 100, so only suggest something if you are going to be looking to buy it. They will come with a hefty price tag of 200,000 bloodscrip.

Can you clarify the limitations on this? Is this adding a new enhancive to a pre-existing item? Is it boosting an already enhancive item? Etc.

Secondly, blink weapon certs. I would like that more than my greater fire flares. If purchased, can you replace existing scripts like this?

My guess would be that they’re taking (for example) a +5 bonus/16th level required and boosting it to a +11 bonus/45th level required.
(I totally made those numbers up.)

It’s boosting an enhancive already there.

Yeah, but it would strip the flares AND greater elemental.

Copy that. What would be the limitations on the pre-existing enhancives then?

Pricing for HESS items returning. Not sure whether to read your statement on discord:

Not likely, but things that are returning will be at the base cost from last time.

as which of the following:
1. Base Cost = Base cost of previous run before items sold
2. Base Cost = Ending cost of previous run after items sold

Max bonus. Ranks vs bonus as well. I’m not sure we’ll be doing ranks. Only bonus. And we’ll not be converting to bonus.

>>1. Base Cost = Base cost of previous run before items sold

This, and only the previous run (February 2018), not some year before that.

Wow, is this DR loaded. I think at least the last three DRs the auction censer would have been hands down the number one thing I wanted, but here it’s not even top three (counting sprite weapons even though they’re not the HESS).

>* 6 month enhancive charges. (no spell knowledge)

Can this be stacked on top of items that already have a 6 month or 12 month enhancive charge now?

* Resistance. (limited to how many can go on a single item)

Can you elaborate? Is there a limit to the number of resistances present on a given item? Is there a cap to the total % of resistance for a given resistance? And finally, is there a limit to the total % of resistances for the item as a whole?

Just by this list alone it looks great. So great I’m sure they’re going to be flying off the shelves and sold out by the time I get any worthwhile amount of bloodscrip.

I just started actively playing again a couple weeks ago and missed out on CCF. It may be too late and maybe no one else cares about it(hope that’s actually true so I have a better chance to get it), but if you could last minute add on Defender cert, I would really really appreciate it and stop cursing simu for making me waste alot of money(for a short period).

No stacking.

No UAC, bows, or scripted weapons (like returners).

>>Can you elaborate? Is there a limit to the number of resistances present on a given item? Is there a cap to the total % of resistance for a given resistance? And finally, is there a limit to the total % of resistances for the item as a whole?

Yes to all. You can only buy up to 2 certificates for a single item. There is a cap to a single resistance. No splitting the resistance between different types. The numbers will be clear on the certificate.

>>Last minute services.

Unfortunately no to this. But we can put it on a wish list for next time.

As of right now, no blunt weapons. I went with the most popular weapons in game determined by uses per week.

But you can change my mind with enough responses. 😀

Interesting standard item!

I was just talking to someone yesterday about the old leadership skill that was almost implemented in the conversion to GSIV ha. This looks like a human/empire civilized heraldry type vs the warhorns (but longer lasting with smaller bonus), but using similar stats to that skill.

“Yes to all. You can only buy up to 2 certificates for a single item. There is a cap to a single resistance. No splitting the resistance between different types. The numbers will be clear on the certificate.”

Can you read the certificate and copy and paste the details here? I’m sort of kidding, sort of not.

Was the 2 certs per item for all HESS certs this run or was that only applicable to the resistance certs that you were replying to?

Right now it’s only applicable to resistance and enhancives. I’ll update if anything changes.

Nope.

It was a bit tongue and cheek given the person who posted, though I also mentioned popular choices taking priority.

Last question on this, I promise! What is the maximum enhancive skill bonus an item can reach? (Understand if you dont want to tell us yet, just getting plans in motion)

“What is the maximum enhancive skill bonus an item can reach? (Understand if you dont want to tell us yet, just getting plans in motion)” — RBaldwin

At least 19, because you can find one of those on PlayerShops right now. (The same bronze-tipped vaalorn short sword for 1M that’s been there for a while now.)

Since the GSWiki lists +27 bonus (for Climbing or Swimming, only), with a level number, presumably they have (each) been seen, at least once….

From: KRAKII
Subj: Re: HESS Updates
(Sorry, you asked about skill, and that short sword is to Max Health. My bad.)

So, at least 18, since PlayerShops has both a +18 Swimming (on a leather breastplate) and +18 S&H (on a crossbow), right now…

From: ROBLAR
Subj: Re: HESS Updates
I highly doubt +18 or +19 as a cap across the board.

Those (swim, s/h) skills come out in higher bonuses than the combat ones (weapon bonuses, spell aim etc). They may not even be eligible (cert nnot apply to all skills) or will be priced as such that no one will buy for swim or stalk/hide. Meaning, likely the cert price is based on a bonus increase to the most powerful and mechanically useful enhancives (certain stats, weapon bonuses, spell aim, max spirit pool or recovery, etc).

Well to be fair, he guessed first! I guessed that his his guess was a poor guess. 😉

But +20 was only doable via Sylinar Spire. I guess we’ll see soon.

the enchant certs , i assume nothing will go over 8x as usual . will there be surcharges fer flares , weighting , etc ? also will we be able to get two full enchants on same item? i would love to max out my trollbane set to 8x . then id be all done with all gear on Hood

Subj: Re: HESS Updates
Actually, I believe the advantage of the high-end Enchant cert was that you could go to 8, 9, 10 Enchants.
(And a lot faster–for a cost in Bloodscrip–than buying the 10/11/12-pour potions and having the work done by a player.)
Looks like April 2017 was the last time there were Enchant certs; ‘minor’/25kbs for “+5 up to 7x”, and ‘major’/100kbs for “+5 over 7x”.

Ya know, We went over the prices on enchant potions being to high last time and they got adjusted, now you have put them back at the stupidly high prices again that everyone but you guys think is to high. Hell the 10x potion is more than it finished at last time. What gives?

Can the flare seals work with WPS? Or other scripts like Blink? I think last run the answer was no but it was going to be looked into for future runs.

They’ll be adjusted. It’s not an easy catch when you’re dealing with the event as a whole, and they were put in at the same cost as last time before adjusted.

Please try to work on your delivery though. You can simply ask a question without the accusations as if we’re always trying to do something to make it a hard time for players.

second on the flare/cert and wps. I thought they were seperate and not limited to one or the other. I think got a few certs to refund if I can’t use the wps also. not meaning to make a threat or anything, but the WPS is more valuable to me than the dispell flare seal and resist proclamations.

Can flare certs be applied to bandolier weapons?
(i.e. changing from whatever they are, to this new more gooder one.)

Can Enchant certs be applied to bandolier weapons?
(I believe I asked at one point, and got told that PremiumPoints could not.)

.

For possible future consideration: is there any chance of getting the weapon profile changed (merchant, or cert)?

From: SIMU-WYROM
Subj: Re: HESS Updates
Yes on bandoliers, except changing weapons. Is it possible? Sure. Maybe it’s something we can offer one day. It’s just a small subset of players who own them, so it’s not something we’d probably do at an event like EG or Duskruin. Maybe a calendared thing down the road at some point. Khaladon offered this service for Premium Points by hand once.
