The issue with signet rigns / parrot feathers / hankerchiefs is that thye come in so many colors and are awarded too rarely or in just one color (as the silver signet ring which was grey AND inscribed) that their value IMO is high, How many times you've seen a uninscribed signet ring?


Never. And nothing can be awarded "too rarely" IMO. On a side note, the signet ring I won in the BKDDoodles was Grey, a few weeks later it turned up in a tourney with the standard inscription. Livid much? I'm ALL FOR trinkets in the 8 hour tourneys being of only one colour, or the same as Tan Fams, Tan/Random. This is somewhat the case already, but with mixed colours. I know from memory that on Sage: Aqua/white hankies, Black/Gold hankies, Pink/White hankies, Lime/Blue hankies and Maroon/Navy hankies are common as muck. 21 colours times 2 is 42, giving 42 (!) colour combinations of [less desirable colour here]/[Random colour here] trinkets to be given away in the 8 hour tourneys.

 
Mirrors won't ever be as pricey as uninscribed OM dolls or even uninscribed signet rings - if any, since they wont ever be inscribable or hold in portraits (At least the signet rings can be inscribed). TSK TSK Please make mirrors and coms inscribable.


For me, the trinket has no extra value because I can hold it in a portrait. Rarity > Vanity.

 
EDIT (because I was on MSN): Even if mirrors are awarded on Tournaments, their price won't be high. Not all the people wants them now, not all the people will want them later on.

If mirrors turn up in the EHTs... well. I won't be a happy bunny.

My point is: There are a LOT of possible combinations for parrot feathers, that NO ONE can have them all, more now than Lavander / Mint / Rose are added to the list. That are a LOT of them, and I think there should be at least one complete set of parrot feathers available in the whole ocean. Why? Because it is dumb that a trinket is available but it hasn't been created or accesible to the playerbase.
Same with hankies: I don't know if Rose/Mint/Lavander will be added to the mix but still, have you seen a Tan/navy or a Violet/Violet hankie? That's my point. It is not right for a Trinket to exist but to not exist at the same time.

Your signet ring was inscribed? I mean, even if it was inscribed with your name, the value is higher since it was not awarded in a tournament but in other competition that took more time and more effort to get. I can only recall Gold, Tan and Silver Signet Rings awarded in Hunter. If there is other color of it, let me know. Becuase again, there should be at least a complete set of all trinkets available in the ocean for collectors. I can see, that would be a mess to collect all parrot feathers / hankerchiefs / even all signet rings.

Back to Polly's idea, Yes, Familiar dolls may be alright, but only if they are inscribable and unless specified they come uninscribed.

Flooding each of the Oceans with hundreds, even thousands of Trinkets simply to allow a player to theoretically collect them all is a terrible, destructive and wasteful idea IMO. A brown/brown hanky may never exist, (zomg poo hanky!) and that's absolutely fine by me.

On the subject of Signet rings, I have seen Grey, Gold and Purple on Sage.

As it's as harmful to only be 2 mirrors on the whole ocean that most of the players doesn't even know it existance therefore not that valuable.

Players' lack of knowledge does not make things less valuable. Players' lack of knowledge might make some willing to pay less than others. Tanking the rarity of any trinket to increase visibility of it does not increase its value.

If you guys want to discuss trinket distribution policy, please take it to Events Workshop. Outside of Atlantis trinkets, even I have more to do with trinket distribution (as a frequent event runner) than the developers have. Putting this discussion where Apollo and Co. will be likely to read and consider it is a better idea than cluttering a thread meant for new trinket ideas.

Anyway, back on track with suggestions:
  • I like the earlier suggestion for a coin trinket, available in gold/silver/bronze.
  • Gems (not at all connected to the gems that are run by merchants - just a trinket that looks like a gem available in all colors).
  • scallop shells
  • snail shells
  • pocket watch (inscribeable)
  • compass (inscribeable)
  • hip flask (inscribeable)
  • model ship, would look like a carved wooden model of a sloop, could be colored as a real ship can be painted (inscribeable)

  • Perhaps when you have a sinking PvP, the winner recieve this trinket with the actual colors of the defeated ship: Imagine a black/black model ship trinket: Expensive++++
    If they would be ransomed this way, make them automatically inscribed such as BK trinkets.

    I dont know about trinkets but there should be trinket stalls.

    Rack only because the best thing about trinkets is they cant be orderd so u get rare ones.

    But selling then on rack would be good.

    PLEASE. We need to have Mirrors and Combs switched so they can be inscribed. Please.
    It would not just look pretty, but boost the item worth and therefore making it more appealing. PLEASE!!!??!

    For various celebrations, I would like to be able to get a Firecracker (aka Roman Candle). I figure the body of the firecracker would be one Color choice (traditionally Red), and the Sparkles and Lit Fuse would be a second color choice.

    Thanks!

    I have not read recent posts but I think this was not mentioned.


    Seeing as Parrots get a parrot fether, How about, Monkeys get a banana(Only Coulors monkies come in.), An octupuse get a vial of ink(Only in colours they come in,), And the sea horse a sea horse scale????

    These are just things that have bugged me =)

    I think they should make the color of the red starfish a bit darker. Because right now people confuse it with pink too much.

    I agree. I think the color of the skull should be determined by the skelly that messages you when you get it.

    It's a simple enough thing to do, since the skull trinket uses the same image as the 'headshot' from when you click on one, just a different palette.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been done already, honestly (applicable to skulls won after this change is made, naturally).
