This does beg the question of whether there will be limits for major wins, and if so, by what criteria?

Also, any word on shops? If there can be some nice, useful items to be found, as with previous incarnations of this sort of event, even a couple of shops would be nice for those who don’t have time to grind for the silver needed for the big wins.

Actually, he’s more likely to be the front man for sales & promotions. Approving customer interactions.

Game Design, and the Development Team, are the ones more likely to approve things involving “power creep” and Monty Haul….

We have checks and balances, so no, I’m not the guy that approves everything. I play a part in the approval process. I think this is always a big misunderstanding on how things work behind the scenes.

>>This does beg the question of whether there will be limits for major wins, and if so, by what criteria?

Information will be coming soon on this, but it won’t be your typical win restriction setup.

>>Also, any word on shops? If there can be some nice, useful items to be found, as with previous incarnations of this sort of event, even a couple of shops would be nice for those who don’t have time to grind for the silver needed for the big wins.

We’re focusing on the services. We don’t want to spread the event thin in terms of manpower.

This isn’t a SimuCoin event, nor is there any micro/macro transaction layer. Purely a silver event with the only requirement is you have paid subscription.

Is this a raffle/spinning/auction type of event? I’ve never been able to go to a coraesine event…

Is it a you have silvers and you can get the service or still have a limiter?

Yes, there are a finite number of services, so each merchant will choose a selection method.

Over 300 was the quantity of offerings, not the different types of services. Outside of unique items, we don’t have over 300 services to really offer that fall into MAJOR mindsets.

Technically we have already gotten more information on this event then we normally
get this early before a newish event.

Yeah we have known the dates for over a month.

I believe it was mentioned

On March 23rd!!!

* Tentatively May 13th to the 15th.
* There will be a service schedule like previous versions.
* Live merchants for the majority of services (with normal selection processes [spinner, raffles, lists, room order, etc]).
* Grounds will be the aftermath of siding with the Dryad.
* Little to no shops (TBD).

and then he mentioned that it was May 11th through 13th.

Yeah this is actually a lot of information a lot earlier than usual. It seems odd to complain about this specific event.

And thank you so much for posting that full schedule. It’s really helpful, and now I’m even more excited than before!

Any idea on how much permabless will start base wise? I am very limited on coins as is and will not waste my time if its going to be too expensive.

Love the concept and silver drain and appreciate free events…just realizing i most likely cant afford any service let alone get lucky to win one.

Subj: Re: …more hype?
I’m fine with ‘orders of magnitude’. (Or ‘digits of scientific notation’, if you prefer.)

Split by Minor/Major would be great, too. 🙂

.

.

(So, “minor services on Sunday you can expect at least 4 [6, 8, whatever] zeros,” versus “Permablessing the coraesine you win will be 11 or 12 twelve zeros,” for example.)

>>Re: Pricing

No way to really give you pricing examples here. It goes by the item you bring to us.

>>Changing color of will-o-wisps and changing color of ice-rings?

Color changing… Hmm. Seems appropriate for a MINOR at this venue. Ice rings are something I believe that can be done outside of this event.

>>Any chance that script swapping will be offered at this event? I heard it’s a thing but have not seen it offered anywhere.

>>I have a lightened/deepened/altered plain cloak that I’d like to make climatewear. I have a plain unlocked climatewear cloak that would be the script giver. I was told script swapping service would be my solution!

Not at this event, but I’ve done it at Duskruin in the past.

Are we going to get penalized in any way if we win a service that we don’t have the funds for? Will the service spot be re-spun/chosen if someone doesn’t have the funds? For example, if someone is 20 mil short of a 300m service that they had no idea would cost 300m before the event, how will that be handled?

Is there a service cost cap?

Can we get a breakdown of spots per service?

I’ll try to be as helpful as I can with pricing. But I don’t want people to get around the passing items around rules.

>>Is there a service cost cap?

Not currently.

>>Can we get a breakdown of spots per service?

The quantity? Yeah, I can post that.

Just so I understand- is the point of the fees for passing items to prevent passing of items? Or is it to discourage it?

i.e. If you pass an item, you’ll be asked to pay the service fee for multiple major wins, but you’ll be able to have the item worked on. OR If you pass an item, you’ll be asked to pay the service fee for multiple major wins, but you won’t be able to have that item worked on.

To make you pay for it. Prevent/discourage is sort of irrelevant in this model. The idea is both we’re trying to allow more people to get services or remove silvers from the game if you want to soak up all the services.
