    I was glad to see that the team plans to work on loot in the coming months. In addition to making the rewards on high end creatures more worthwhile :) please cut back on the jars, vials, spoons, plates, torches, etc (basically all of the crap that's worth 1-2 gold, weighs 1-2 gold, isn't useful for crafting/adventuring, and forces me to hunt through my pack and purge it repeatedly so I don't get overloaded with trash as I adventure.)

    How many deserted homes do you really think I'm going to decorate with all of these rusty spoons, plates, etc?

    My friends and I often joke that at the end of each night we should mail all of the crap (spoons, plates, etc) we get in loot to atos and see how long it would take to drive him insane.

    PS: Of course we don't want to get banned once we drive him insane so we DON'T DO IT !!!

    Where does loot come from? Selling to vendors right? Blame your fellow avatars for selling all them spoons to vendors.

    I agree, although don't take them all the way out. People actually come by and buy them sometimes, for cheap, when they need to deco up a run down place.

    We just don't need the insane quantity of them.

    +1. They are good to have, just don't need infinity of them.

    I think scrapping them is also a great idea. Wooden bowls for wood scrap, metal dishes and 'spoons' for metal scraps. Both we do need;). And also sell or keep some as desired ;)

    Agree! Loot can be a burden if it isn’t useful. But I’d still rather get a rusty spoon than a plow or a yoke, and I’m bringing home bunches of those. :confused:

    We really need something to do with this stuff.

    Jars, vials, flasks, etc. -> salvage to GLASS
    Spoons, forks, etc -> salvage to METAL SCRAP
    Ceramic bowls cups etc ->salvage to CLAY
    Wooden cutting boards, bowls, ->salvage to WOOD SCRAP
    Maps, paintings ->salvage to WOOD PULP

    This stuff is really just useless clutter. I've been tossing all the rusty cutlery and dirty clothes into a box called YARD SALE since they added this stuff. At one point the box weighed over 20,000 pounds. Seriously, there's no consumption on these items and they aren't worth the weight/time to sell.

    Think about scrapping all these old paintings and maybe finding a treasure map inside one! :X

    Interestingly, with the new dungeons you can decorate, some of these items might be useful...

    Sure, but I passed the quota of rusty whatevers that I'm likely to put in a dungeon about 2 days after they added all of that stuff to the loot table. :)

    Room after room of rusty plates and vials in every dungeon is going to get kind old...
    "Look Bob, it's another mess hall. Wasnt the room we just came out of a mess hall too?"
    "No Steve, it was a lab with lots of vials and stuff. The other mess hall was two rooms ago!! Don't you remember!?"
    "Oh yeah. I must have been confused because every room we go into has the same pictures everywhere..."
