I didn't realise IRE was that old, and needed a kiss!


Do Ironbeard presents go by the present counter like wheel presents do?

    Yep. Got a standard present from him earlier. Contained less than 5000 gold, but it counted for the counter.
    I'm Lucidian. If I don't get pedantic every so often, I might explode.

    Hmm. So with Ironbeard back, I guess we'll see more people AFKing in manses?

    Oh they already are, people not usually logged on at this hour are online.

    Pity this can't be coded to detect activity.

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    Technically it could be, but it'd just change the nature of the AFKing people. Instead of setting a high timeout, they'd just put "jump" on a timer or something like that.

    I mean activity as in questing/hunting/influencing etc etc. Things that are tracked via cultural activity.

    I get the feeling it is an acceptable practice, though. Somebody made some comment a while back that support even said that sort of thing is expected, if you're after the cooking curios.

    I'm not usually one to manse-afk but I think I probably will this time if people are getting presents that way. Ironbeard rarely visited me in the past when I just play normally. So eh, if I've gone tellsoff don't even bother.

    Nono. That comment was about logging in remotely to complete something, not staying AFK as a way of making money or experience.

    I got another present, sapphire this time.

    Question: Does being in a manse/not doing a whole lot affect your chances of getting a present? Not all of us have the luxury of being able to be around ten hours a day :( I've been in my manse for the last 14 hours now, and I haven't gotten a present yet. I was in my manse for 15 hours yesterday, and no present then either. Do I just have bad luck, or are there shenanigans afoot?

    I got mine while my net was down, before I timed out, so I doubt they're checking for activity :p

    Who knows, though.

    I did a bunch of things the other day and no present. Today he came when I was in my manse reading reports. With gold.

    He visited me twice in two days while hanging out in my manse. The first time he even stayed with me for close to half an hour. Gave me gold and 66 sips of mactans.

    For the record, you probably shouldn't drink that stuff. :)

    I will take those mactans off your hands and make sure they find a good home. I know a certain person, who shall not be named, keeps forgetting to get more and could use them!

    It's just purely luck. I've gotten them idling or paying attention, doesn't seem to make a whole lot of difference either way!
