    Well, for years this has always happened once between Christmas and New Year and once on Memorial Day.

    This year it didn't exist until now.The last time this was between last Christmas and last New Year.


    Or to be precise:
    Then starting December 16 at 12 PM PST (Noon) through January 3, 2020 at 12 PM PST (Noon), double Blood of Luclin currency, double personal status (members only), and double guild status (members only) for all live servers.

    Not to be that guy, but shouldn't the post say this week's bonuses and not this year's?

    Cant you sell Ergott and Mircus Deathband in a sale for 1000 Jadeite Medaillions... THIS would help really a lot of players :)

    It has definitely NOT been both for many of the events. At least that's how I remember it. If I was motivated I could pour through old announcements to find specific times, but I'll just wait until tomorrow, sell a couple items and see.

    Double personal status in April/May. https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq...ses-beginning-on-4-30-20.594553/#post-6607782

    Another double personal status in April. https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq...-the-team-and-bonus-week.593964/#post-6601989

    I had a better dream ( for years now :p ) that we can buy those for loyalty tokens ( I have soooo many of those !)

    Yes but the personal status is what goes in the guild hall door for upkeep, that's what I like. I can sell off all my status loot now and have millions to dump in the door. I don't really care anymore if the guild levels or not since it's just bragging rights.

    Very true. Some of us (me) are trying to level our guild to 150 to feel like an accomplishment. Was stuck in the low 130s for years until the new guide quests came out. With the double guild status, we might actually reach 150 this time around.

    I'd planned to use all my transferred alts from Kaladim when it closes to fuel the door status. Or make more crafter alts. I found there are a few book quests on upper tier vendors that cost a ton of status and if I ever want to get them, I have to save some for that.

    Yea my guild is stuck at 123, maybe if there was something to work towards I'd be more inclined to try to level it. But they don't even give us adventure writs anymore, I used to bust those things like crazy.

    Is this true for the new RoS guild levels as well? I hadn't heard anything about the new levels, or the new leveling system other than the producer's letter.

    Status appears to be personal status only.

    It also appears to only be on the ingots also the amulets dont give double personal or double guild status. The ingots you get from the overseers are giving double personal and guild status.

    Where do I find these spell research reducers that are supposed to be 20% off? I do not see any such item in the Marketplace.

    That's right we haven't heard anything about the new system of leveling the guild from the RoS AddOn.

    Basically, it sounds like it only affects guilds from guild level 300+, which is unlikely to be any guilds worldwide. Surly not more than 10 or so.

    Mega mass player guilds with more than 175 active accounts are likely to have reached the current maximum guild level of 300, since most players there, due to the sheer number, have little status to achieve in order to reach the maximum level.

    Smaller guilds with 1 to 30 active accounts have no real chance of ever achieving this as things stand at the moment.

    Yea I'm not positive if they changed anything or not with the new increase. But I do know even the guild banner changed very little, they have put in no new amenities that I can see. So basically IMHO there is really no reason to level other than bragging rights, once your high enough to get the guild banner and a few levels into it and all the amenities you want, I just don't see a point. If I am wrong please let me know. The personal status can be used for all kinds of things, like buying things and the upkeep on the guild hall. I usually leave about 50,000 status on all my alts for just in case they need something, and the rest gets deposited into the guild hall for upkeep.

    I think it's added directly as a hidden discount into the Upgrade research tab itself. I forget what it usually costs per day, but its 39 DBC right now per day. Usually 49, right?

    As far as I know the spell reduction cost is directly related to the length of time left in the research. I don't think it's a set amount.
