Wyrom Warns 100m-300m Reserves as Highest Services are Auctioned at CCF

Moon Master Wyrom says to expect auctions for the highest services at #CCF: permabless, spell knowledge, glamour tattoo, defusion, coraesine, T-3 briar flares, weight-reducing, and … maybe more, because there’s an ETC at the end. Reserves will be 100m to 300m.

>>For things with more of a flat fee, I’ll try to get those out there soon.

Are there any additional costs associated with winning the spell knowledge, weight-reducing, or x/day item services and if so, what are they?
thanks

Any chance of getting the service types pre-start? Auction/Raffle/Spinner/Etc.? Just trying to plan out my day Saturday and how MUCH I have to be at my computer.

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule
Allow me to re-phrase that request: can you specify which services will definitely be Auctions?
(Because I have a slim-to-none chance of winning anything there, and can take my time about making an appearance.)

.

Next: while I realize that the area is now going to be open all the time…
…any chance of you guys changing your minds on the whole “quest transport” capability for this event?

.

Also: Silvers? Notes? Foreign notes (so we can withdraw from the Landing but pay in Sylgesundheit)?

.

Last: what was the final verdict on passing silvers around?
The character I saddled with all of the money has all of the items I’m likely to want to have worked on…
…but the character I would most like to wind up with some of the spellcasting goodies (Knowledge, tattoos, X/day) is a) completely different [even on the other account] and b) now completely broke [because previous line].

If they walk around grouped, is it kosher for X to hand silvers to Y, should Y win?

>>Re: Limits, costs, distribution methods.

Just to be 100% clear, this is a high-end silver event. It’s not much of a get lucky winning something type of event. If you don’t have much in terms of silvers, there are very few things on the list for Friday and Saturday that will fit your budget.

Auction is the preferred method to dealing with some of the highest services (permabless, spell knowledge, glamour tattoo, defusion, coraesine, briar (tier 3), weight reducing, etc). Reserves (which will be the MB) will be 100m to 300m depending on which.

Rune tattoos and x/day are 10m.

I understand the surcharges stacking for services to a single item as a way of gating improvement, but if the goal is to get people to bid (and drain silvers), the level at which these surcharges scale for multiple wins seems silly, especially if there are reserves…

The question was for things done by raffle or spinner. The luck is involved with winning one of those spots; coughing up the silver to get the service is the next step.

Pretty sure I’ve got a T2 Iasha floating around, so… good answer!

Does it have to be of that material by name of the item, or by analyze? (I think the white eog gladius that I still have, analyzes as ‘steel’, even though it’s Holy and +10.)

To be clear, this will take the weapon up to +30 with the WISdom bonus and the daily teleporting, right?

That’s really the price? I mean, I’m sure not complaining, but I was expecting anywhere from 50m to 150m, so this catches me off guard!

(Maybe I just value x/days more than most people. They were the thing I wanted third most–and now they’re bumped up to second since a coraesine weapon will be out of range for me in an auction setting.)

Leafiara that would be the minimum bid not the final price is how I read wyrom’s post. Players will send the price….upwards.

Does “reserves” just mean minimum bid, which must be paid in addition to the cost of the service?

Announce what? Auctions? I’ve been talking about them for awhile. I’ve mentioned this is a high-end service event from pretty much day one. Or are you worried about the reserves? Prices will likely go far above the reserves in many cases.

So, Wyrom!

What can you tell me about the minor services, on Sunday?
(Since that’s looking like about all my seven-digit bank account will support. 🙂

Limits? (Per item, per character, per account, if any?)

Surcharges?

Min- and max-costs, if any?

Is ‘varies’ likely to be closer to the 100k spikes, or closer to the 2.5M Enhancive?
(Guessing: higher cost for higher Enchant, tiers of Ensorcel, et cetera?)

Surcharges, and/or service limits?

It varies due to your item properties. A 5x battleaxe will be a bit cheaper than a 7x sancted handaxe.

A 5x 2T ensorcelled maul to flare fire was only about 300k.

>>Surcharges, and/or service limits?

No surcharges or limits. Only MAJOR services had those.

>>Oh, oh, I was going to haunt the place on Sunday for a sonic merchant! That’s been cancelled?

In order to trim down the list due to Mother’s Day, a few minor services got the cut. There were only 5 sonic offerings, which we will be offering another way outside of this event.

>>Will we be able to add flares to WPS gear at this event?

Yes, because we can apply variable costs better.

>>Well guess I’m going to miss out on even the services I’ll be able to afford since no one thought people might actually spend Mother’s Day with their mother. Scheduling them all in the afternoon/dinner time rather then later in the evening wasn’t the best move….

We scheduled when GMs were available to perform the tasks. We also condensed all the MAJOR services to Friday and Saturday to try to avoid as many conflicts as we could. We also have a large number of players who prefer morning/afternoon work instead of late work.

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule
>>Re: Auctions

I wanted to be clear, we have over 350 MAJOR services for this event. Right now, we have around 30 or so planned for auction. The variable pricing is actually in favor of many people who don’t have a whole lot of silver and have low or middle end gear. I’ve been running many examples of pricing tonight just to get a feel for the tipping point, and it really doesn’t start until 7x with other properties. Yes, things with better properties at earlier enchant will bump up faster, but I think the majority of players shouldn’t have too many concerns. We do have some things that we have an anticipated amount of silver we’d like to take in, so auctions are the best venue for those things.

It’s important to look at the event as a whole and not to just hone in on the top 25 services. I feel like that’s where a lot of concerns fixate. If you’re among the top 25 wealthiest players in game, that’s when you should probably focus on those services (if they are of interest to you). There will be some luck when we use spinners to select people, so the playing field is pretty wide open.

<It’s important to look at the event as a whole and not to just hone in on the top 25 services. I feel like that’s where a lot of concerns fixate.>

To be fair, this has been advertised as the most expensive silver based event ever, surcharges start at 5 mil with no mention of the base charge for most services, and other then auctions not much has been mentioned about what method will be used to select who gets services.

When information is scattered among a few dozen posts and not all of it makes it to the wiki, it’s hardly surprising when people get skewed ideas of what’s going to happen.

So can the 4x acuity go to a total of 10x? or is just adding up to 4x acuity to a non acuity item?

Thunk of another: I see you have five slots for Defenders there at 7:30pm on Saturday.

It hasn’t really seemed to me to be the case that Defenders are really sought after all that terribly much (since they kill all chance of a player Enchanting the weapon), but I wanted to run these past you:
– only works to up the Enchant on a current Defender? (Bringing mine, just in case…)
– only works to create the base (+5 from this service) Defender state on a new weapon? (Sending my perfect main gauche, just in case…)

.

And–really dreading this answer–since the current Defender in question is imflass, were I to luck into getting selected for BOTH one of the Defender slots AND one of the Partial Enchant slots an hour later… +5M surcharge?

This is my understanding:

+5m for the imflass weapon you just got brought up to +15
+5m for your second service on your account

= 10m surcharge.

Plus whatever it will cost to have the work done.
