    Isn't that kind of the point?

    Not necessarily; we have a relative lot of things that they probably won't ever incorporate on Live, like having all the Advanced recipe books available via a special merchant (the only reason they won't do that on Live is the number of howls that would erupt from the Broker if they tried). :-/

    I really do hope we can help "test" the concept that these holiday recipe books should be freely tradeable. :)

    well at least the Oceansfull recipes will now be free trade , or after the next maintenance they will be , and other festivals might follow , like for example Night of the dead .

    Well NOTD you biy from the merchant. They aren't a drop or percentage to drop.

    Uh, now that I see there has been some confusion, allow me to clear it up.

    The Oceansfull recipe scrolls are now trade able. That change went to test yesterday, as the Test update notes indicate. That change will be going to live. Live events are meant to be the same on both Test and live, in order to get the most accurate test environment.

    The recipe scrolls change only affects Oceansfull Festival scrolls.

    Is there any chance that we can get:
    Fewer items available from the shells or some items on a merchant (and thus fewer items possible in the shells) 25 is SO many. And while I love the items, I'd really say it's too many.
    Or even out the %chance to get the items that are there?
    Or maybe just a straight merchant + tokens from the shells or something?

    I know you've made the recipes tradable, and thank goodness for that because I don't want to have to do this hunt again.

    345 items before I got the recipes scroll this year. That's a LOT of swimming around and cracking open clams. I feel that's a bit unreasonable. I know I am probably an outlier with that, but holy moly it is frustrating to literally have like 30+ of some things and before you finally get just the one recipe.

    Still, woo-hoo! :D And if it works for Oceansfull, maybe it would work for that particular NotD recipe book that is found by "harvesting" the grave sites? The Catacomb set, iirc. :)

    The regular recipe books that are merchant-sold can be just about any tag, imho, though I would appreciate it if they would STACK. X-P

    Oh, amen; I hear that. :-/

    What I would like to see is maybe more new items for Oceansfull and Frostfell (like 6-7 vs. only 5, for example; that way, it wouldn't take very long at all to get every toon at least one of each, and you can spend the rest of the time on the quests! :D), and have the old ones available on the merchants, for silver and copper, maybe a gold or so, and maybe changing that up every year or so. :)

    I looked for another recipe today and I spent hours with no luck. You really need to make it more available as it is a good way to keep players interested in the housing/decorating feature. It's pretty frustrating not to get a recipe that will expand building and decorating options. And even if you can buy it on the broker or auction, you know the price will be exorbitant making it hard for newer or returning players to get the recipe.

    I'll check with my own copy in our Shared Bank to see if the tag's been removed; if it has, I'll holler and you can let me know which toon of yours needs it. :)

    My main Carpy on Test has hers, so that's really all that needs to have it; my junior Carpies and my "water babies" can just find their own, and at least we have one toon amongst us that can do it. :)

    But yeah, that RNG needs to be loosened up, like the casinos brag about their slot machines. ;->

    EDIT: Yes indeed, the tag is lifted! Which toon would like this, Almee? :D You can in-game mail Spiritmaker from whoever it is. ;->

    It is truly sweet of your to off to send your recipe but I was just testing out how hard it was to get the recipe. I didn't know if getting it, after an hour's hunting, was fast, average, or slow so I was trying to see. Apparently I got my recipe fairly fast based on the second try which lasted a couple of hours with no success..

    I'm sure there are others who need the recipe though. And the RNG, of this game, is going to kill it yet. See my update on the KA access quest bug.

    Did you get your OF (Oceansfull) recipe book, then? :) It's not exactly taking up a lot of room in Spirit's inventory, and it's not like we need another, with my Test Hordelings -- on the other hand, if you don't need it, I'll make it available on the Broker for a little over cost for whoever does need it. :)

    And yeah, the RNG is awful. :(

    EDIT: Did you see where Kaitheel updated your thread just now? :)

    I can't believe they put the spell scrolls in two different rooms. How intuitive is that? And there is no Wiki write up to help and none of my fellow players knew how to help me because their scrolls were found in the main room with the 4 scrolls. I can't believe how rotten my luck is that I kept getting the blasted scrolls in the other room, wherever that is. Everyone kept telling me they were in the room with the podium and I just wasn't seeing the scrolls on the floor.

    As for the recipe, I got it the first day I tried. It took an hour but that wasn't as bad as the second day when I tried for 2 hours with no luck. I wouldn't mind having the scroll for my second account but I don't want to be greedy. There may be a Test player who is going nuts trying to obtain the recipe. I know I was pretty frustrated after 2 hours of opening shells. So if you don't get any takers you can send it to Almee and she can give it to the carpenter on the second account. Thank you for the offer to share :)

    The wiki is a player/fan supported project, and is not maintained or updated by the devs.

    Have YOU updated it with what you found? The last update for that page was in 2020... and if you read step 6.3, it clearly indicates there is more than one room.

    Now returning this thread to Oceansfull discussion...

    Thank you for this!! Like tenfold plus 1! heh
    I remember you from way back before I took hiatus, and so happy to see not much as changed. You were always so helpful and communicative with us. It is appreciated.

    This is great. Though I would like to reiterate, that in the future, you guys might consider the harvest token thing for any recipe on a merch, OR an npc that lets you trade any recipe for another recipe (see my last post for details if needed.) As I said, over time with more books, the increments could get burdensome. =p But that is for future years (hopefully next year,) and I realize likely not this one.
    Either way, very happy, thank you! =)
    Now...can someone on skyfire sell me one when this patch is live (or am I to understand it already is?)
    I would be VERY appreciative of that!

    That's been a traditional -- well, I hesitate to call it a "complaint," but at least a "comment" about this game from way back; not sure if way EQ1 back, but it always struck me that the Powers could get more people grouping forcibly if newbs had to rely on players that had already gone through the numerous non-intuitive steps of many of the quests, rather than being able to figure out something on their own. :-/

    And I just started poking around with the Wiki page myself, in tiny things; it is possible, especially when everyone else figures "someone else will do it; I don't have to." Sheesh, people; at least check to make sure that theory is correct and someone else has or hasn't... :-/

    Cool! :)

    And I'll probably get more offers once it gets near the end and folks start getting desperate, or just tired... ;)

    I was referring to the books being tradeable. =) I might have misunderstood, but it sounded like Kaitheel was saying the tradeable option was already fixed, or will be shortly? Not totally sure. I knew about oceansfull starting the 1st week of June.

    Sorry I thought your asking if you can get it on any other server yet .
    And yes the recipes have been fixed since our last maintenance on Friday .
