The Lottery

So, EQ2 has a new “expac” (and I use that term loosely) with Tradeskill Apprentices.   You can research new spells.  You do a quest each day, and you get a reward that could be anywhere from the booby price of 20 common harvests, a few different tradeskill potions, a rare, or the grand prize – a  reactant.  At T9, that would be a colossal reactant.

The very first quest I ever did on one of these, I got the colossal reactant – and being poor, I promptly sold it, thinking I would get more.  Plus, I sold it for 900 plat… that’s a lot of spell upgrades!  I don’t regret selling it, I needed the plat.  And I’m sure I will get another some day.  I leveled up my duplicate Febbi just so I would double my chances (and the tradeskill xp bonus is nice too).

So it’s a lot like playing the lottery.  Or as a guild mate says it’s “9 stages of dissapointment”.

But now, poor Caely is coveting a Tranquil Robe of Impulse.  So she’s mad at Febbi.  Won’t even eat the fancy food/drink that Febbi makes her (ok, that’s my fault, I keep forgetting to equip it!)
