Sign my petition to fix this Gold Box Booch! Reply to this Post

So the last couple of weeks in my spare time I have been making grids for Gold Box furniture. I still have lots of grey combo items that are missing and it was bugging me so I did a little checking back through releases. Would you believe there was never an official release for GREY in gold boxes! So that prompted me to PM Forculus (because he just doesn't have enough to do right?)

 
Hi Forculus,

I wanted to ask you a quick question re Gold Boxes and the grey items they spawn. I have been collecting gold box items ever since they came out and I cannot for the life of mee find certain items in grey colours. Is there any chance that the following items were booched and not released? I know grey was the last colour to be added to Gold Boxes but that has been well over 1 year and 5 months ago now so I find it strange that the following items have not appeared.

- a grey Male Conquistador Knights Helmet
- gilded easels in grey/white and grey/gold
- gilded wardrobes in grey/navy, grey/brown and grey/gold
- gilded beds in grey/white, grey/brown and grey/gold
- gilded armor with sword grey/white
- gilded armor with spear grey/white, grey/navy and grey/brown
- gilded bookcase in grey/white, grey/brown and grey/gold
- gilded sofa in grey/navy and grey/gold

any light you can shed on this for a confused OCD pirate is much appreciated!

and here is his reply...

 

It looks like Grey was one of the possible colors for those items in an older version of the box, but the color was later replaced with Persimmon. I'm not sure what the reasoning was, it may have been a request from the artists. So it may be quite difficult to find certain items in grey, as they will be considerably rarer than the other colors.


So what do you guys think? Should we fight for grey to be an official colour? It is not just furniture that is effected. Does this mean that grey will not spawn in the new gold box trinkets? it never showed up in the feather!!

My question: Does this apply to the trinkets as well? Do the brand new trinkets not come in grey?

I would hope that each color is either "Yes, it's a permanent color", or "No, it's only temporary", and TELL US about it. If grey isn't a permanent addition to the gold box palette, I hope they can tell us.

For consistency's sake, I really hope that the next batch contains all the proper colors (including grey AND persimmon), and re-releases all the possible and valid trinket/furniture colors (well, with only the one rotating LE color, of course).

I just had a chat with Clotho re radiant pheonix feathers. She had a report from someone that their feather collection all changed to red.

As i recall there was a release that changed the rendering on feathers. When i logged on after that release all my feathers changed to red too. There was a subsequent patch and when i checked after that there were 15 separate colours again. You can see from my pirate page what they were.

However, the feathers have always had a glitch. Maybe they were only ever intended to be a no colour item. From day 1 there were 15 colours including spring green. But from that day on they never spawned in any other LE colour or in grey or persimmon.

Can we have this looked at too please? I think that for the sake of completeness they should come in all 6 le colours and also in grey and persimmon just like all other gold box trinkets that are colourable.

And please think of the mismatched furniture! Not only the older items that are missing certain combos but also all the new furniture. That should have grey too!

I really dislike my feather now. It was pretty but now its just this dull red feather. I miss the "radiant" part!

Wait, so the feathers are still spawning in only red? So we lost the pretty one for nothing? D:
