    The ability to shift levels of an artie you own. Lvl 3 rapier down to 1... or lvl 3 str down to 2. Raise it up after as desired. Cant be done if on aggression timer.
    Good idea! IDEA it?
    It's been suggested for 15+ years and we've always been told no, or that it isn't possible.

    Can’t people still request to borrow arties for a limited time before buying them to test them out first?

    Could we get a forging ability that allows weaponsmiths to craft weapons with level 1 or 2 stats FOR <person> if they already have a level higher? give it 30 months decay, cost a lot more comms or have a gold cost.

    It would be awesome if all groupable items could be dropped in a single group, and sold in any quantity, somewhat like the tuns we have for liquids. @Veldrin had this idea for sigils, but I think it could just as easily apply to any groupable item. Would make shop space much easier to assign.
    Give us -real- shop logs! Not another misinterpretation of features we ask for, turned into something that either doesn't help at all, or doesn't remotely resemble what we wanted to begin with.

    Thanks!

    I wish honours was on its own balance. I've lost group at the most inconvenient times way too much.

    People would run database checkers in the background constantly if that was a thing. It caused very significant lag back in the day.

    i'm p ignorant on that kind of stuff. Can an admin identify the source of that kind of spam and then shrub the offender(s)? Seems like anyone doing that kind of thing would understand that what they're doing is a dick move to the game and they would and should get in trouble if caught.

    They already did, hence why honours now costs EQ. No they can't shrub the 'offenders' otherwise they'd have no players, since SVO was the main offender.

    There's no rule against it though. There are rules against spamming, but they only deal with directly spamming other players via tells/channels etc. Making a rule might be difficult, because there's no clear line between "acceptable" forms of a client sending lots of commands/requests and "dick moves". Is it ok to squint in all directions whenever you want to look for something/someone and gag the output? What if you do that every time you move? Is it ok to use a gagged WHO as a locating ability and use it frequently? What if your client does that automatically every 10 seconds?

    Sometimes it's easier to just slap a balance loss on something than having to bother with making all sorts of in-game rules, deal with exceptions, deal with rulebreakers, deal with people who complain about being punished unfairly, etc.

    Personally I don't see the problem with honours taking balance. You just have to get used to not doing it all the time. It was a different thing with emotes taking balance, which I'm really glad they removed. Custom emoting is something that should be encouraged by the game, constant "honoursing" isn't.

    Checking people's honours is part of my idle spam. It's incredibly difficult to override years worth of habit.

    I understand that. Getting rid of some idle spam habits is hard. But feel the negative consequences of doing so often enough and you'll adapt eventually.

    Last night I went to bed extremely confused. I couldn't find my bow. It was on my Artie list, so I thought maybe something yoinked it when I died, or something, but then it didn't come back.

    I went to bed perplexed, woke up and saw that my bow still had not returned. On the cusp of filing a bug report, I suddenly remembered: I have a baldric.

    In conclusion, can we have some way of showing where our weapons are sheathed on Artie or weapon list.

    Not necessarily true that you'll eventually adapt, take it from me. I just end up excruciatingly bored because there are so few things I can do while waiting to move.

    Still, I get why the cost was put on and don't expect it to be removed.

    Well, you could script yourself a safeguard against it, requiring you to type in "confirm" after honours or something while you're following, but of course you'd have to accurately track when you're following someone for that, which can be a bit of a hassle (not so much for starting to follow, but for the things that make you stop following and may not necessarily have a message).

    This actually feels more like an oversight than anything else, but the marble plinth from the Shop of Wonders is kinda lacking in certain obvious functionalities.

    1) It does not allow you to LOOK PLINTH <Item ID>  (which the display case allows)

    2) If you put a journal on it, you can't read the journal either, which I feel is a shame.

    3) The plinth isn't encased in glass or anything so item displayed should actually still have an interactive quality to it(touch/push/pull, at least touching)

    Cause I'm lazy and have difficulty doing the time calculations to my zone, especially with the Seranade and each day of an Achaean month being a little off-set from the last, just a little bar on the main portal page of the website that states the date in Achaea at that moment. Then maybe I'll be better able to join events and such.

    The shadow scythes can’t be either, so I’m still not sure what the request is. You can’t custom the cloak until you nondecay it, either. Maybe I’m missing something.

    Inscribing tarot cards is extremely straight forward and fits in with other classes needing to "prep" some stuff to fight. Being able to inscribe 20 at a time also makes things easier, even more so with a quill.

    I can't see a need for unlimited tarot. I'm saying this as a Jester / Occie for most of my 16yrs playing time.
