    Whetstones are basically completely worthless.

    Can they be sold/traded to other people?


  • ValkynValkyn Member Posts: 734 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    I don't think so - and even if they could no one actually needs proficiency anymore? So there'd only be a market for a very few out there, not the tens or hundreds the stockings will pop out.

    You open a fancy golden stocking and find a crate marked "live animal inside" (camel mount) and 533 gold 
    sovereigns inside!

    You open a logosmas golden stocking and find 25 credits, 1535 gold sovereigns, and 1982 gold 
    sovereigns inside!

    I thought these were supposed to have double the prizes... is this bugged? The golden fancy had a crate and 533 gold, that seems like LESS than what I've gotten out of the regular fancy stockings, not double.

    I too feel like I have been screwed out of my supposed "double value" from my golden stockings. What gives IRE? This purchase suddenly feels a lot cheapened to me.

    You open a logosmas golden stocking and find a free reincarnation, a group of 33 ginseng roots, and 
    a group of 7 wood commodities inside!

    You open a logosmas golden stocking and find 20 credits, 1401 gold sovereigns, 1668 gold sovereigns, 
    and a group of 9 steel bars inside!

    You open a logosmas golden stocking and find 20 Humgii betting tickets, 1833 gold sovereigns, a 
    group of 11 coal pieces, and a group of 34 lobelia seeds inside!

    12/25/5:47 25 Looks like there was a small glitch in the giftbag code that valued the whetstones higher than it should have - here's 25cr to make up for it!

    Yay!

    I'm just shocked that of all the things people are complaining about, whetstones are the forefront instead of those ridiculous ventriloquist dummies. I could see those being like, voluntarily purchased items, but as prizes they make me sad. Not sure if they have a tradein, but I don't think so.

    I got a trait reset. So very meh. Ah well, I guess if I ever switch class again..wait no I won't, there's multiclass now. Haha. Other than that 20 credits, Mayan Crown, Crate with a Jackal pup. So fairly decent haul.

    You can at least sell them. Some people do want them. Don't think you can trade whetstones, even if you could, a spec costs 100 lessons, so as a hard cap on their value that was seemed quite a bit less than what they were supposed to be representing in the stockings.

    After a long debate yesterday, I caved and got a stocking. Was surprised to see a crated animal in it! So now I've a camel calf companion. Does anyone know if these grow into mounts?

    I got one in a regular stocking. Guess it was sheer luck? Considering selling it as it's not really my type of thing, but was awesome to get nonetheless.
  • GrandueGrandue Member Posts: 382 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    How is it that people are getting the exact same thing in a golden logosmas and golden fancy stocking when one costs three times as much? Can someone look into this please? I don't want to open any more of this stockings for fear that they are bugged.

    All I got in a golden fancy was a camel... That can't possibly be double the prizes.

    There's a moderate-to-low chance in every opening that you get more than the value of your stocking when you open it, it's possible that someone got lucky there! A golden fancy stocking should be valued at around 80ish credits, which seems right if you got a camel mount, which is valued at over 100cr!
  • JemaineJemaine Member Posts: 57 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    I bought 5 basic stockings for what 25 bucks? I gave them all to my greedy self. In my defense I don't know anyone well enough yet to be gift giving anyways.

    So minus the worthless stuff, and including the golden stocking I got: 2 ice figurines, 21 lucky sips, 2 baby seals, 10 nuts, 25 credits. 

    I got roughly 50 credits from selling off the seals and nuts. Kept the lucky for when I might need it.

    So with what 25 bucks would have got me in credits plus a 40% bonus, I definitely came out well ahead. Unfortunately, a single tear ran down my face when I opened the golden stocking and the crit pendant was not inside.

    SO MANY phial's of perm ink and not only can I not trade them in, but I can't use them on someone else and I have no room (yes I am trans tattoos too) to use them on myself. So they're forever in my inventory. I ISSUED with no outcome yet.

    Got a bunch of stuff from my platinum stockings, including a fire pendant and a couple of top hats, a pipe, a vial and a globe.

    I also got a whetstone which doesn't appear to have a hardcoded trade-in value yet.
