    Once again, bows (with leather helm) are placed at or near the bottom of the stretch goals.

    I have enough swords, boards and plate that I don't use.

    I had one more, but I would be banned so hard everyone in a six mile radius would feel it.

    We need more leather that's meant to be worn by male avatars and that is dyeable. Seriously tired of being brown. That's my vote anyways.

    Do tell “grins”. I would ask for two bar wenches to place on my pirate ship’s lower level tavern. R/Boris/El Pirata from House Serenite.

    P.S my opinion which may or may not be in line with House Serenite view. “Winks”.

    Bite your lip and save your $100K for a better offer, one day bows will be at the $10-25K level. Law of averages works that way sometimes...I think?

    Someone posted a listing of all stretch goals so far and bows are kinda traditional at high stakes in stretch goals/teletons, so kinda an "do not hold your breath" thing (because zero survival chance)
    So well, i will monitor the whole thing and should they ever reach bows in the teleton i consider to spend money.
    Tired of ending with junk to delete all the time

    Heh, I wonder if they consider why the stretch targets are getting harder to meet.

    Could see this one coming like a trainwreck. They really need to come up with some items that the typical players want in addition to the RP's and Fanbois. I want the game to succeed, but I want something I can use and for my money. I've put enough into this game to have some resistance to spending more.

    There are already more leather helms / leather helm patterns than I think any other type of gear in the game. Alllll those hats.
    For bows we've already had two telethon bows (thorn bow, ice bow), there's an ornate elven bow from bundles, and the elven woodwind bow from drops. A 5th bow option wasn't a significant enticement.
    Honestly, the piles and piles of 'outfits' and 'cosmetic weapons' that I've got accumulating from a couple years now of telethonning are going to need a 3rd dresser soon.
    If the stretch goals are to incentivize spending, I'd suggest mixing it up a bit.
    Throw in a title every now and then - if you started after the pledge phase there's basically no way to earn any in game title short of buying a town or winning a contest.
    Instead of another decorative furniture item, howabout a box/chest/dresser/whatever that has an increased capacity, like say, 500 items? That'd be a hit.
    Use the streams to introduce new exciting functional items that less-shiny, functional alternatives can then be added as craftable/sellables later on.

    Same deal with the actual stuff in the store.
    My houses are pretty much decorated and I have enough clothes. Last couple telethons I've just spent the minimum and now I've got my accounts subscribed. I used to drop a few hundred bucks every stream but last few there's simply nothing I need to buy at this point. Yes, you want to appeal to new money, but there's also a lot of us who are still here, still playing, and we've got money to burn if you give us something interesting to buy. ;)



    Ok so its summer right?

    Want to keep things as a theme?
    So you have your cosmetics...
    Swimsuits - Two pieces, the top of which doubles as fancy dance party alternative
    Maybe some martini style glasses with the little umbrellas in them that can be held or used as decorations.

    A beachball that as a bonus, has the gustball functionality. Maybe more HP than the gustball too so you could knock it around a bit.

    A barbecue grill that has the cooking table functionality. Hell, even give it the +5 expert bonus. Its just cooking?

    A deployable picnic blanket (funcions like gustball, despawns when leaving scene but you keep the item) - players sitting on this could get some miniscule out of combat regen bonus.

    I'm just spitballing here, but stuff that actually does something would be more of an enticement, at least for me.

    PS Prosperity Ingot Mold. Seriously.
