100%hit 100%mana 81%mv 22270tnl 29613gold day no opponent none> task
Anga the leather worker says 'I'll give 500 gold coins for a traveler's hood from The Orcish Mountains.'

Come on. This is a lvl 50 char here, and you have to request it on top of that. I've been tasking for a while now, but find it still really unrewarding.

I did get the chance to kill the essence of evil for 25000, but you'd need a group of three/four to do it. 25k isn't enough.

Well we cant have 25k tasks all the time can we? You can either have a wide range, including duff, or you can have a nice boring 500 gold task every single time. That's where guild tasks come in.. they're consistently baseline mobs. Whereas shops are for people who prefer to play the odds. Just wait until the guild tasks are straightened.

Maybe this weekend.. but I have a million things to do so not promising you it.

The amounts I usually get at 50 are 1000-2000. Hardly ever stray from that, though.

Fixed!

Here's an example guild task.

Quote:
task> Dunvegan the paladin guildmaster says 'Niphos the priest of light in Seringale is expecting a greeting from one of our guild.'
greet niphos> Niphos the priest of light says 'the High Priest of Darkness stole a package from me while I was in Timaran.'
kill darkness> You get a sealed package from the corpse of the High Priest of Darkness.


Regular ending

Quote:
You give a sealed package to Niphos the priest of light.
Niphos the priest of light says 'My package! You have done well.'
Niphos the priest of light gives you 2561 gold coins.


You are now free to do another guild task.

Alternate ending

Quote:
drop package> You drop a sealed package.
A sealed package shatters into fragments.
Something falls out of the broken package.
get 1.> You get a fire-scorched chainmail vest.


You must now wait out the duration of the task before you can do another.

FAQ

How is the target chosen? - The game attempts to find you a suitable, UNIQUE target. Whether it will be reachable is another thing. It will just look for a target thats about your level. For example, if you're level 50, you might get sent into Redhorne, Tiamat etc, if you're 30 you're much more likely to luck out and pick Diana.

How is the object generated? - This will depend on the level of what you were sent to. So if you're looking for good eq via this method, you'll probably want to wait until you get a good mob. Use CONSIDER and look for difficult kills.

How is the money determined? - Again, depends on the level. Its a risk/reward sort of thing, you might be better off doing shop tasks in high levels, which are just find/retrieve missions. The rewards will be consistently average for the guild tasks, so they're good if you're not the sort of person that enjoys playing the odds a little bit.

Four new task locations:

1) Vinnie in Darkhaven - collecting contracted objects
2) Dioraem in Valour - slaying evils to save damsels
3) Aldacer in Valour - delivering packages for the nobles
4) Tir in Seringale - recovering packages from thieves

Still a bit crude and probably error-prone because its new.


Anyway, these are cabal-related tasks ..as you can see.. and the purpose of that will become more clear later.

I've tried to do a few of the Valour cabal quests..I realize they're supposed to be taxing, but everyone I tried has either been to hard: Deloth or that Giant Chieftan with the uberlong name that I've never seen before...at level 26...Or so vague as to be a non-issue, such as "take this package to the thief..."

:shrug:

Just disheartening when you go to try to help and you can't do it. Is there any way to scale them to the taskee's level? Probobly not, but I figured I'd toss it up.

ok thanks for the feedback, I'll adjust their customer bases when I feel ready for it again (burn-out), as for "the thief" it sounds like Solace.

There is also "a thief" in the Moria mines if I remember right... and "a mage" and "a warrior." really bland titles, but meh. Oh well.
