Time to spawn more familiars???? (in General)


QBRanger May 12 2009 4:09 PM EDT

I have been looking for a SF for a while now.

Looking at past auctions for 1 month from the auctioneer, not including lessers:

0 SF
3 RBF
3 HF

Can we get a few more please?

If we are not meant to switch our tattoos, fine. But this is just a tease.

Technically we could spawn them with the Black Market. They only take 49 votes, and considering we routinely spawn things just under twice their vote cost, it is a viable possibility

QBRanger May 12 2009 4:19 PM EDT

Good idea, never considered that.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 12 2009 4:33 PM EDT

Lol Ranger forgot the simplest option :)
but i agree there hasn't been any SFs spawned for a while.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] May 12 2009 5:20 PM EDT

I do believe more familiars need too be spawned, i dont believe the blackmarket is the way too go.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 12 2009 5:22 PM EDT

6 spawned in the last month. That means only 6 of us get to change our strats to utilise those Tattoos, unless we want to see the limited amount of tattoo's we've currently got (and no one wants to eat a large tatoo...) diminish.

Can we please change the TA.

FailBoat[SG] May 12 2009 5:24 PM EDT

I'm agreed with GL. Quit trying to use the only way to currently spawn in "rare" items on a regular basis to change your strat and instead push to try and get the Tattoo Artist changed so that way the lack of familiars and tattoos ceases and they can begin to grow again.

Fatil1ty May 12 2009 5:26 PM EDT

tatoos are far more important to this game than any single item. Sheesh I would hate to be a NUB and be UNABLE to get a regular tatoo

LittleLauren May 12 2009 5:28 PM EDT

Actually, two SF have spawned in last month. April 15th and 20th.

FailBoat[SG] May 12 2009 5:29 PM EDT

Then get the tattoo artist changed so it quits eating the tattoos. Don't get one or two more spawned so -you- can change your strategy and let it continue to rot in condition for new players.

Fatil1ty May 12 2009 5:30 PM EDT

so you're saying instead of just doing the next best thing swing for the fences and too bad if it doesn't work?

sorry i'll pass. I say we vote for them in the meantime given that the game has a history of slow change especially stuff like this.

FailBoat[SG] May 12 2009 5:33 PM EDT

Then you and Ranger stage a coup of the BMVG, but it will stand as it always has.

QBRanger May 12 2009 6:47 PM EDT

Wow, such hostility.

Impressive.

QBJohnnywas May 12 2009 7:20 PM EDT

If you want a SF that badly Ranger there's one with a BIN in auctions.

QBRanger May 12 2009 7:33 PM EDT

I do not need that one badly.

I wanted one to test something out.

Not that badly.

Can it ever occur to you that I am not doing this for my own good, but for what is best for the community?

QBRanger May 12 2009 7:35 PM EDT

"Actually, two SF have spawned in last month. April 15th and 20th."

I only see one spawned on the 16th.
I was 1 off.

For new players, I think it would help if lesser tattoos could be turned into normal ones by the TA so they could start with a lesser one and convert switch to a normal one later without losing the levels they got on the lesser one.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] May 12 2009 7:52 PM EDT

Not gonna happen man, lesser's are lessers for a reason. :)..

Cube May 12 2009 7:57 PM EDT

They grow slow already; there's no harm in letting lessers be inked to normals.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 12 2009 7:57 PM EDT

Yeah, that does make sense.

Lefty May 12 2009 7:59 PM EDT

If lessers could be made into normal tattoos, the economy for them would drastically change.

Normal tattoos wouldn't have as much value anymore, and would just be consider another item. The value of lessers would increase because they can be easily obtained and then just changed to a full tattoo.

I'd like to just see more normal tattoos spawn, and keep lessers as they are.

iBananco [Blue Army] May 12 2009 8:24 PM EDT

Lessers would still be worth a pittance. Why would you ever want to grow one at half the rate? You can already buy regular tats up to 2M or so at store price if you're patient.

Lefty May 12 2009 8:36 PM EDT

"Lessers would still be worth a pittance. Why would you ever want to grow one at half the rate?"

If they are made into normal tattoo's through the Tattoo Artist, they would grow just as fast as a normal tattoo. That is why people want this change. To increase the number of normal tattoos.

Unappreciated Misnomer May 12 2009 9:25 PM EDT

If our Votes never expired, we could do so much more! Even get your own tattoo in 49 weeks, well not if Mr.Chairman is involved. but you know, we can dream ^^

QBRanger May 12 2009 9:29 PM EDT

I also do believe votes should never expire.

However, I would have votes expire from characters that do not log in for 1 month.

If they come back, they can start voting, however all their old votes are gone.

Burton May 12 2009 10:10 PM EDT

I would love if more Fams would spawn. Been trying to get a Halidon for atleast a week and not much luck. :(

iBananco [Blue Army] May 12 2009 10:12 PM EDT

"If they are made into normal tattoo's through the Tattoo Artist, they would grow just as fast as a normal tattoo. That is why people want this change. To increase the number of normal tattoos."
It would still cost a tattoo to change them, so the amount would actually remain the same.

QBRanger May 12 2009 10:19 PM EDT

I think people are thinking the conversion from Lesser to normal familiars would be with a fee.

As using a full tattoo to make a lesser to normal would not make sense.

Cube May 12 2009 10:19 PM EDT

If they are made into normal tattoo's through the Tattoo Artist, they would grow just as fast as a normal tattoo. That is why people want this change. To increase the number of normal tattoos.

You clearly don't know what I'm suggesting.

1. Allow inking a lesser tattoo to a normal tattoo, with the cost as a base normal tattoo. Keep all of the perks such as being able to revert your tattoo for a week.

2. Allow inking a normal tattoo to a lesser tattoo, with the cost as a base lesser tattoo. Again being able to revert for a week.

-The Consequences

*New players are no longer penalized for using a lesser tattoo at the start. They could put off buying a normal tattoo with a smaller consequence.
*Other players could ink to a lesser tattoo to try out that type of tattoo cheaply. It would NOT be advantageous to keep your tattoo as a lesser tattoo because of the half growth rate.

QBRanger May 12 2009 10:25 PM EDT

Yes, option 2 is very nice. Just to do some testing.

Wizard'sFirstRule May 12 2009 10:41 PM EDT

both are good options, I think. inking lesser into normal using a normal would just carry the level with it, so in essence, you "inked the level of a lesser into your full tattoo", as for normal into lesser, I would rather it reverts automatically after a week, you wouldn't suddenly find yourself with a lesser.

Spawning will not change outside of a change month.
