Subject: It All Ends In Death!
I was going to title this post The Grand Experiment, but I couldn't resist a good, doom-filled death
But this is still a big experiment!
We've long been unhappy by the spread of talisman items in the game, the frustrations the cache
system causes, and the problems created by scarcity and rarity. We're going to try something a bit
different! We do take the alteration of any system that involves your money very seriously, we
always strive to ensure satisfaction by as much of the playerbase as possible, and we always aim to
promote game health wherever we can.
In a new shop in Delos, the Death talisman set is on sale for bound credits.
Each is a complete item and will be bound to you on purchase.
If you purchase one and later regret it, these can be traded in like normal for the usual 2/3rds
adjustment of the purchase amount.
But this is not the only change! We know that many people already have one or more pieces from the
Death set, and we don't want to render these worthless.
If you have two or three pieces of a talisman in the Death set, you can:
TALISMAN COMPLETE PARTIAL <talismanname>
to complete it for the remainder of the bound credit value of the item as it is in the Delosian
DOING THIS WILL COMPLETE THE TALISMAN AND BIND IT TO YOU.
Talismans completed in this manner will have an altered tradein that reflects their credit worth,
including the credit-purchased completion.
E.G You have: cruciblebase and cruciblebowl.
You use TALISMAN COMPLETE PARTIAL CRUCIBLE and pay 500 bound credits.
This is half the cost of the crucible in the shop because you already have half of the pieces
You get: a completed soulfire crucible talisman.
This item has a tradein value of: 346 bound credits.
This is 2/3rds of 520 credits (the 500 credits paid above, plus your 2 pieces valued at 10
You are also still free to trade these talisman pieces around, so if you only have one piece of a
Death talisman, you can ask around to try and get two in order to be able to complete your partial
HELP DEATH TALISMANS now exists with all this information, and the specifics of the set.
All of the above ONLY applies to the DEATH talisman set at this time.
Provided that this experiment works out the way that we hope, we'll be looking to make the Delosian
Talisman Shop's stock rotate to offer a different talisman set each (RL) month!

Penned by My hand on the 15th of Phaestian, in the year 792 AF.
Just kidding. I do, but thank you @Nicola for at least 'testing the waters' with this.
Just a shame I sold my second piece a few hours before the announcement!
But very painful considering I just got my cape velvet the other day. And spent waaaay more than the 375 I would have paid to complete a partial with the 3 pieces I had been holding for 4 months.
Ah well. At least it's still an amazing talisman, regardless of what I paid.
shh calm down
In my defense, I waited so long for a velvet to hit the market that I didn't want to miss it. And I had to convince someone to break a completed one to get it.
I think the cape being 1500 is about right
Penwize has cowardly forfeited the challenge to mortal combat issued by Atalkez.
Also, it's one of, if not the best hunting artifact in the game, no?
Yup... Waiting would have realistically saved me around 675 credits. haha
But that's my own fault!
I think veil and diadem still cost more. So this is super generous of the adminn
I'm not digging at you. In fact I probably wouldn't be artieed out if you never bought globes higher than everyone else. But you definitely have deep pockets, and didn't earn every credit from IG methods. Or at least I see no way when I remember you as a Priest without your Auroran mace, anyways.
This works for everyone, including you in the long run in my opinion.
