As the name implies, the Friday Grab Bag is a collection of community questions taken from the official Dark Age of Camelot forums. Add some announcements into the mix and you have a good read.
Q. Is Quillan Muire in Muire's tomb supposed to drop any loot? It seems like he is the "boss" of the dungeon but she drops nothing different from his surrounding guards. I know he has a quest associated with her, but the other named Muires along that quest can drop items. Thanks!
A. I would probably haggle a bit with Muire. I would say, "Hey, we got the same last name. Or maybe my last name is your first name. Suppose we are related! After all, how many Muires have you met in your life? Gimme a dollar off that piece of shit thing, there."
Q. I have noticed that the blunt weapon given to druids by the trainer is called an "Arch Mace". But it is actually a hammer. Is it supposed to be a hammer and is mislabeled or is it a mace with the wrong graphic?
A. It is neither. Rather, it is a vibrator. The whole thing was fucked up. Still is, as a matter of fact.
Q. How do I add the guild ranks to the house friends list so I can set the different permission levels?
A. That is an excellent question. Thank you for asking it. I would actually approach the house of friends list, and I would ask them what they are. I assume you are better acquainted with the house of friends list. You may want to ask them if they would hold onto your guild ranks for awhile. Even if you never intend on going back for them, just do that. That will fool them, enough. Offer to get them high as an incentive.
Q. My question involves the Alchemy drop items. Why does the Ancient Crushed Focus Stone only drop one at a time, while the Ancient Troll Blood, Ancient Giant Blood, Ancient Mirror, Ancient Pure Mercury, and the Enriched Quicksilver drops off the same mobs in stacks of 5? The Ancient Necrotic Brain Fluid and the Ancient Lich Tooth will drop in stacks of 3. There doesn't appear to be a level variation between the drops, and they are all used with Alchemy of 1000+. Shouldn't they all be dropped in the same quantity?
A. In a perfect world, that is indeed what would occur. However, people have had thousands of years to build a decent society with fair, pragmatic rules. Literally all our planet's best minds have come and gone, all trying to perfect this civilization and they've not yet succeeded. So what makes is think that this thing was gonna be any better? That's actually a better question than yours.
Q. I've been looking for a trophy mob - a pig called Jari. I've tried for many game-days to get it to spawn, either in the Abbey Farm or the Bandit Camp, by killing Wild Sows nearby. No luck so far. Is there any way you can confirm that it still exists or any advice you can offer?
A. Yes, dead things can't fuck or inseminate or be imprenated. That's the first thing you have to understand. Try taking your pig, Jari, up to a living pig of the opposite sex. You may have to manually masturbate both of them to get things started.
Q. Upon deploying certain rams we've come across rams that you have to invite people on. I've asked many times in advice but to no avail. How do you invite people on a ram when it calls for an invitation?
A. You say, "Hey, buddy! Wanna hop up on the ram with me? I'll give you a ride on it." That's the best way to do it in English. Use a translator to offer foreigners a ride.
Q. I'm looking for some clarification on the rest xp you implemented in 1.94. The patch notes are not clear about whether any unused rest xp is lost when a character logs out. For example, I log in a character to craft a few items but do not do any hunting. Would the rest xp that character has already accumulated carry over to the next time he logs in? Or would it be reset?
A. It depends on how much of the stuff he's using. Get him into rehab if he keeps fucking up.
