Thrice has a really good point.

No one ever sees uniques anymore because the people who own them never play and log on once a year to keep their characters from being deleted.

Should we redistribute uniques lets say, once a year?

Honestly Amanar, I think they should be.

On that note, at first I was against a server wipe, but I think it should be reconsidered.

Most of the old school players here have been pushing for one, and now I see why. If not only to delete uniques that sit in inventorys, or clans that don't play anymore, for the sheer fact of "A new beginning" for the server. There are no other servers around and in the event it doesn't bring the old school people back, there are no disadvantages to newer players. As well as the excitement of finding uniques and grinding for first of whatever race/warlord.

Please think about it.

Nope. They aren't really that great besides the divine armors. Maybe hand out those at special LQ's or contests more often?

Unique's are what they are "Unique".

Dare i say more really....

Just add more, of a different kind with unbelievable stats, that stand out as a Unique!

The Unique weapons in game could be improved in stats and looks, I will do some.

Please don't Redistribute the Unique's, not that i own any, it wouldn't be a correct solution.

Unique's have been capt @~1 i do believe....?

2 uniques per person playing, minus the fire/ice armor because it's meant to be a set.

I like the divine armor idea. Why not make it more obtainable? Instead of exp in a LQ, have random uniques (divine armor/others if not redistributed) handed out. This way things will still get around, and people can make use of them.

What if we just rethought the idea of the uniques, maybe made them a bit more useful, and instead of 'unique' just ultra rare. with each find making them slightly rarer to find.

I see your point mate, Unique's our as what they are.

Rank Unique's - New Unique's Based upon Race and Rank...?

On further thought this is already solved due to the introduction of the Champion quest. You only need to put in the effort to obtain a 'unique' weapon.

Ice armour was changed I believe to make it have a limited life (3 months?) before it was recycled.

More uniques could have a similar flag set on them. The technology exists for this.

Adding more uniques or rares to the game is also an option if I get some decent sprites.

I also like the idea of adding random stats to things like Ankh Armour or Ammy (although don't tell Thrice I thought it was a good idea).

Should uniques be redistributed? I will be honest, no they shouldn't. The fact that some astronaut is hoarding a unique even if he logs once a year is not OK but it is the design of this game. By design, I hope you read a massive flaw. Nonetheless, the fact that they stopped playing doesn't mean that they shouldn't be able to keep what they worked for.

I am really against redistribution for the simple reason that it is not fair. The people who play more will have the best uniques. First come first serve is just as bad. But i think a solution exists that will satisfy people and make uniques actually a good part of the game.

I proposed this often and never really had a response from a management point of view. I want to see uniques become random "non unique" drops in the game. Make them super rare and allow players to collect all of them. Trade for pieces they don't have, etc. This has been done in previous iterations of this game. I don't think its hard to implement and it might give something to do as well.

Get rid of uniques. It really is a stupid feature. Especially since most of them have been claimed for eons.

LL, can you check the code for Ice armor?/

I own 3 pieces and have had them on my character "labamanar" for almost a year now. Is it 3 months of played time? If I drop/pickup the armor, does that reset the timer?
