    I don't mean to sound ungrateful but it would have been appreciated if we had some warning - I know a couple of people that had been holding out to see if any auctions were coming up and spent their credits on artifacts literally a couple of days ago who are going to be kicking themselves now.
    Never put passion before principle.  Even if you win, you lose.

    If olive oil comes from olives, where does baby oil come from?

    If vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat?

    I'd really like to see:
    1 more Tear of Shallah
    2 more Boots of Shanth
    1 more l4 critical rune

    Some interesting things here, but one of each is kind of making it an extremely competitive market (and plumping up the value more than most people would be willing to pay- you can get 2 people who really desperately want something and keep bidding long past when anyone else might).

    That's not necessarily an issue for auctions themselves, but it is when auction values are used for pricing things when they go public, and I'd expect each of these to eventually make it public.  Some day.

    Would I get a refund on the boots of shanth if I have the sandals of haste? or would I only get 2/3rds value?
  • MoiMoi Member Posts: 1,213 Transcendent
    It could be that they stack instead.

    I don't think any of those will be 'public' ever. I know the level 4 crit rune is auction-only, and the Boots/Tear probably will be too, if I had to guess (completely unsubstantiated guessing).

    RE: boots - if we win the boots, do we get to fold in the cost if we already own sandals into the payment? Like the crit rune? Or do the boots stack with sandals?

    RE: ikon - how customized are we talking here? I assume the name and the unique effect line will be specified by us, but can we also specify what it does within balanced reason?

    Clarramore's Worst - does that refer to 5 times per 24 hour day, or per lusternian day?

    Also, Docking Bay? Here comes the Magnagoran Death Star
    2014/04/19 01:38:01 - Leolamins drained 2000000 power to raise Silvanus as a Vernal Ascendant.
    2014/07/23 05:01:29 - Silvanus drained 2000000 power to raise Munsia as a Vernal Ascendant.
    2015/05/24 06:03:07 - Silvanus drained 2000000 power to raise Arimisia as a Vernal Ascendant.
    2015/05/24 06:03:58 - Silvanus drained 2000000 power to raise Lavinya as a Vernal Ascendant.

    I believe you will get a full refund because the boots are considered an upgrade of the sandals. They do not stack.
  • IosaiIosai Member, Gods Posts: 201 Divine
    It may also be worth noting that the poisonists charm will catch poisons from any source (which is a far wider range than KeenEye can detect).
  • SsalissSsaliss Member Posts: 3,575 Transcendent
    How exactly does the docking bay work? Can you create manses within manses with it (by using the fulcrux orb at it)? Is it of any use if it's not used on an aethership? Can you dock to a docked aethership? Can you dock an aethership that has aetherships docked to it?
    image
  • IosaiIosai Member, Gods Posts: 201 Divine
    I'm not personally sure how the docking bay artifact works (I'm not coding that one), so I would recommend issuing for clarification. :)

    That said, I'll also ask when the relevant person is around and post it here for everyone.

    Any chance the increase in cartel slots artifact could be put in the auction again?

    We'll work with the winner to set up an ikon as close to their design as possible. Ikon statistics are done by a formula so it's not possible to make an ikon that does 10 damage on the first initiative for no power and no cooldown, but if you say you want a legendary ikon of Weeky Peedia that does arcane damage, we can do that. The ikon will be able to be used in any group (similar to Eternal ikons). Hope that helps clarify for you!

    Manseception?
    Everiine said: The reason population is low isn't because there are too many orgs. It's because so many facets of the game are outright broken and protected by those who benefit from it being that way. An overabundance of gimmicks (including game-breaking ones), artifacts that destroy any concept of balance, blatant pay-to-win features, and an obsession with convenience that makes few things actually worthwhile all contribute to the game's sad decline.

    @Morbo, you'll get a 100% refund on the sandals if you win the boots (we were waiting to make sure with Est before saying definitively). I believe she's updating the auction info to reflect that.

    Is the custom Ikon a one-off thing where only the winner gets one, or will it be added to the list of ikons you can get in ikon packs?
  • ZvoltzZvoltz Member, Gods Posts: 402 Divine
    Only the winner will get one.

    I wish there were medallions of resurrection in this auction.
    Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
  • EventruEventru Member, Gods Posts: 719 Divine
    To note, the docking bay module details have been clarified a bit.


         Allows a ship to itself become a docking point for other
         ships. The docked ships are passengers and cannot battle or
         empathy, etc. However, they also cannot be targeted. If a ship
         with docked ships is destroyed so are the docked ships. You
         cannot dock onto a ship if you have ships docked onto you and
         ships cannot dock onto you if you are docked. The number of
         rooms of ships docked onto your ship cannot exceed twice the
         number of rooms of your ship (so larger ships can carry more
         docked ships)

  • SsalissSsaliss Member Posts: 3,575 Transcendent
    That clarifies it a great deal, thank you. No escape pods, alas, but nice nonetheless. Also, I assume that you cannot create manses within manses with this artifact, and that it's thus useless unless used in an aethership?

    You can use it as an escape pod, you just have to shove off before the ship goes boom!

    You cannot use it in a manse, iirc, just ships. It's an aethership module.

    (also, auctions 12 and 13 are at 170 days as opposed to 144)

  • MoiMoi Member Posts: 1,213 Transcendent
    You could put it in a manse that's a ship in name only. Like Deepnight is.
  • SsalissSsaliss Member Posts: 3,575 Transcendent
    Well, yes, but as ships cannot dock to ships that are already docked, and ships with ships docked cannot dock, then that would, for all intents and purposes, make it useless.

    Hey, since the auctions just started, you guys should add 5 more existing arties (already available in game from the shops) and sell them for gold, get more of that out of the economy.
