    Not to sound ungrateful for all the hard work so far, but is it possible we could have it listed what the prizes of the stockings can be? I found this old post of when the stockings were first introduced, but I just want to make sure if it is the same or not:

     - Shard of the Lesser Lorewarden
     - Ink-stained rose thorn (See ANNOUNCE #4447)
     - Ledolian Surcoat (See ANNOUNCE #4447)
     - A trader's reference (new artefact - allows the use of the commodity market from anywhere)
     - Prospector's guidebook (new artefact - increases the maximum number of mines by 1)

    versions below) <---- Im definitely sure this must be changed
     - One of three new collared mounts (caribou, walrus, and white lion) <---- This too
     - An Ironbeard battle figurine
     - Credits and gold

    @Asmodron See LOGOSMAS LIST for all the possibilities, they've been mostly moved out of the stockings/giftbags proper and are now much more flexible via candycanes.
  • KryptonKrypton shi-KhurenaMember Posts: 2,377 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    So to clarify, stockings this month can only contain these items?:

    Prizes!
    This year you have a chance to find:
    - Silvery candycanes
    - Various statistic altering artefacts
    - A Logosmas themed artefact vial

    Also @Nicola , Since I see stuff in here worth 400 candycanes.  What exactly is the amount of canes you should expect from each stocking level on average (or just a rough guestimate)?  I'm thinking of purchasing 5 extravagent ones, and just really want to feel like I'm getting my money's worth since it's $650 usd.

    Also, can we get the ability to tradein the artefacts we get from stockings?  I don't want to get say... a level 3 con belt (which I already have) from a stocking instead of a more useful artefact, and would very easily/gladly trade that in if it meant I got an equivalent 'amount' of candycanes.  (or even 2/3rds the amount.. which is 266 or so, based on the wings).

  • NicolaNicola Administrator Posts: 768 Achaean staff
    All artefacts can be traded in. Candycane gains should be satisfying when compared to the investment made in the stocking.
  • FrederichFrederich Member Posts: 1,243 @ - Epic Achaean
    @Nicola Can they (the stat arties and vials) from stockings, be traded in for candycanes?  Just don't wanna get a level 3 dex boot or somefin and it not be able to fuel my desire to purchase wings, etc.

    @Frederich I do mean for bound credits, if you have an artefact it is then bound to you, it cannot be traded back for unbound currencies or to other people.
  • FrederichFrederich Member Posts: 1,243 @ - Epic Achaean
    Oh.  I was asking about trading them into candy-canes to purchase the arties with but.  I guess that does make them tradeable...

    Still interested

    @Nicola someone I know just got herbs and 2 candycanes from their stocking. I had assumed candycanes was a side-present. Is this suppose to be the case?


    Additionally, since herbs were not mentioned on the list, are there any other small time presents we can get not listed?
    Frederich
  • NicolaNicola Administrator Posts: 768 Achaean staff
    Herbs, gold, and the like are the general filler that we've always had in stockings and giftbags, candycanes are a standard prime reward.

    Candy canes sound like a stellar reward considering 5 get you an interlocked cache, and you can save up candycanes for a better reward if you want. What level are the 400 candycane wings, eagle or Atavian?

  • FrederichFrederich Member Posts: 1,243 @ - Epic Achaean
    @Trey that's a mini-pet cache that opens for the northern minipets set.  It doesn't open for historical/marks and sometimes death, like last months caches.

    Take that as you will.
  • TreyTrey Member Posts: 4,724 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Hmm. Candycanes still sound like an acceptable present as long as the amount is variable and it isn't just 2 every time.

  • KryptonKrypton shi-KhurenaMember Posts: 2,377 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Trey, they're Atavian.

    All the Logosmas artefacts are priced, in candycanes, with their 5cr/candycane value.

    My guess is each level stocking will give approx. the # of candycanes equivalent, at least, to that stocking's credit package value.

    Price:                   400

    It's as you would expect at the rate of 5 credits per cane.

    The payout starts a little above the credit package worth and has a random factor that can push it a nontrivial amount higher.

    Also...

    an antler pipe

    Claimed from the kill of a reindeer's, naught goes to waste in the frozen north, this elegant pipe 
    is fashioned from a piece of antler. Hollowed throughout, a slender prong becomes a mouthpiece, and 
    where it joins the main serves as the bowl. While polished and pale where the smoker draws breath, 
    the rest still retains the soft, grey-brown velvet of growth.
    It weighs 6 ounce(s).
    It bears the distinctive mark of Razzlo.

    You open a logosmas stocking and find a group of 2 candycanes, a pair of Ogre's Gauntlets, and a group of 13 bloodroot leaves inside!

    Yay!

    You are dismayed as a pair of Ogre's Gauntlets turns to dust in your hands.

    I will say that getting an identical amount of canes from each stocking feel substantially less uh.. exciting/interesting from a purely 'feeling' perspective. I would likely have preferred no other stat boosting artefacts, but a more common chance for double/triple/quadriple etc canes to capture the excitement of hitting a bigger payday.

    That's the thing, it's not free stuff. Well unless someone bought it for you, then I suppose it's sort of free (for you).

    Stupid question (first Christmas in Achaea): Are the stockings filled after every midnight (while Ironbeard is around), or is it hang, Ironbeard fills once after midnight, stocking disappears/becomes inactive for good?
  • AntoniusAntonius Member Posts: 4,807 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    @Halstad Each stocking is single use and only filled once. Though they will remain until opened; I think there may be a few from last year still around.
