    This method may pay dividends with players new to Lotro, but as time goes on it loses an increasing % of older players who have nothing to buy. In the at least 2 yrs figments have been around (Update 23 on Oct 8 2018 if not before) we have had only 4 vendors. I wanted 0 from Myrtle which gave me a selection of items from only 3 vendors in 2 yrs, and not surprisingly this gave me opportunity to buy all I want from Filbert and the Curator so this customer and likely many more will have 0 to consume for a year or more. Bring on the new ones so I can spend out in a week!! as rotating the same ol' is only creates rarity for those new to the game.

    Throw in my vote for having all of the vendors be available all the time or at least with a rapid shift. Restricting them so much is an annoyance to players and that is bad game design that should be and easily can be fixed.

    yeah, this. lol. I don't really understand why they hold back. I'm one of those players that actually loves keys/boxes (please don't throw hate at me) But...when I'm maxed at figments, and have a vault filled with stuff I won't even break down until another one comes out...it halts spending/revenue for them? /shakeshead

    How hard is it to understand this is an alert thread? You guys are constantly giving false alerts by posting your unrelated ####.

    Oh sorry, I didn't realise these were your private forums and you are the sole arbiter of what subject matter is related to the post topic.

    I honestly am beginning to think the main goal of the Devs is to frustrate as many of their customers as possible as much as they can in the hopes of somehow driving them to the Store.

    You know better than anyone how long we've all waited for this.

    And now...two weeks till it's gone again?

    Wow.

    Yup. I'm tempted to write a self-help book.. it' be something like:
    • "So, you've dumped all your Figments on stuff you've been waiting for since last year & now you've got 2 weeks to get the stuff you've been asking for since March"
    • "Oh, that's right, the cap is still 10k"
    • "You'll have nothing to spend the Figments you make during Harvestmath & Yule"
    • "Yes, the Curator will be gone before you can earn enough Figments for the cheapest item via the Festival"



    I've the main ideas but I honestly don't know how to help people cope

    Well I bought another "Seregost Spire - Windowed" for 3,500 figments from the Allegiance vendor, worth 600 on decon. The "Statue of Sauron" has the same return as an option to "bank" (yeah the return ain't great) when capped. Keep away from the "Bones of Smag" only 400 on decon and the other offerings - lower margins. Keeper of Mysteries Ally Halls.

    If you have a housing carry-all they don't take up any space and 16 of them gets you 10k figments on tap when you really really need 'em.

    I did buy a pet halter, can anyone confirm that cat pets stay motionless for hours then disappear for days at a time?

    I can't speak for the cats...but I do know with other pets the behavior varies depending on where it's placed. For example, outdoors in the yard, my placed peacock behaves very nicely. It strolls around, turning in different directions, etc. But if I place that same peacock in a Kin-hall's indoor garden, it stands facing into a corner forever. Very strange.

    Good luck.

    I don't see the problem, this is realistic behavior for a cat.

    I think it might be time for a new game.
