I haven't logged in for a few weeks, so I didn't even know this was coming. I'll make sure to check it out.

Yeesh...I see what you mean about clutter, Thylacine. Apparently you can still sell those goofy "bound" duplicate recipes back to a vendor to get rid of them, though I got all of a single crown for the 1-star one I had. I figure even that is better than having them take up space. The duplicate weapons are another matter, though; even the 1-star and above ones would require an exorbitant amount of CE just to ditch, and like you said, we can't get rid of 0-star stuff at all. I'm thinking about making a thread on their official forums asking about the possible ability to delete bound items. I understand having to pay CE if you want to sell something off, but you should be able to toss out extra copies like we're getting now without needing to shell out anything.

I am enjoying the missions concept as a whole, though, even if what we have so far is definitely slanted towards new players. There's not a whole lot of plot there, but it's a nice change from the usual "dive through Clockworks levels for no reason" repetition, and there's quite a bit of potential for future additions. I finally did craft my Leviathan Blade, but I think I might hold off for a little while on buying any more 5-star recipes for the default set, since they might wind up as rewards for future Tier 3 missions.

I'm just glad that this new stuff has rekindled my interest in the game. If you happen to see me on, drop me a line and we can team up on a run.

I've just been burning through missions at the moment, since they've been remarkably helpful at raising money for me. I'm not sure if people can join those mid-way (my guess is not) but I try to linger in the mission lobby so people who want to join me can. Once I'm done with the rank missions, I'll return to the normal Arcade diving (and runs with people who wish to do so).

Apparently, we CAN sell the spare Mining Hats to vendors. I had just been selling stuff to the Auction House up to this point, so I never thought to try selling the bound stuff until now. I'm keeping some of my duplicates for deviation recipes, but I've cleared out most of the clutter. Glad to get rid of the useless recipes (but happy I got some of the basic ones for free). Also, yesterday's mission demanded that stun pop gun they forced onto us with one of the missions, so they might declutter things that way, too.

All they have to do is reinstate the pepperbox series with its original function and I'm completely satisfied. I didn't know there were so many users of that gun, but now there's a bunch of them arguing for a reversion in the SK forums.

My next mission is the Jelly King, which should hopefully get me the Sealed Sword I want.

The "original function" that you speak of was a bug, so don't expect it to ever be returned.

They COULD get rid of pushback, though. I'd be happy with that.

Got sealed sword! :D

well I was holding on playing until Missions Released, then I got exams so I'm sticking with something lighter (FPS game since disconnections don't "cost" me there).

Anyway, today's update adds to missions but as of this time, it's steam only and requires payment. No workarounds at this time. Steam gifting is an option but only if you have steam. I'll wait to see what happens next. Kind of tough that many have wished for a shadow bomb and one gets released like this. I won't be mad yet though.

Huh...I wonder if we could always sell off bound stuff to a vendor. Either way, it's good to have, since it does mean ditching all of that clutter. Speaking of, if anyone's interested in collecting all of the dinky weapons, all of those UV versions of the starter weapons that we couldn't get from the first round of missions are now in the Featured tab at the Auction House, for all of 250 crowns each.

I went ahead and bought the missions pack. I've never spent a dime on this game, so I figured hell, I can at least throw in $4 for some new content.

There was an update that added some more missions. These ones, aside from Kora chats, appear to be Tier 3-centric.

The smartest thing to do with these missions is to stay in Tier 1 and reap points from the daily prestige missions (ranking up appears to give more demanding missions). That would be incredibly boring, but I'm not quite sure what the point is of the prestige yet and it may pay off down the road.

I don't think I'll kick up this thread any more, since interest in the game has started to wane here. If they suddenly make an update concerning guild halls, then I might bring it to everyone's attention (I'd like to make an OCR-tan statue or put speakers in the corners). Otherwise, I shall let this thread slip into that quiet night.

It's the 1-year anniversary of Spiral Knights, and they've got a special event going on until April 10th. It's very similar to the Halloween event - Fight a bunch of monsters in a random room that appears on "gear" stages, get several tokens (Cake Slices, also purchaseable in Haven for a huge markup), use those tokens to get one of three costume helmets (two of which disappear after a set frame of time, one of which is permanent). Since missions have been introduced since then, they've also added a Prestige mission which gets you 4 tokens and 80 prestige.

You need 100 tokens to get the permanent mask. After a full mist tank of energy, I only ended up with 12. I'm hoping I just had some raw luck.

In addition to tokens, you can also buy capsules of confetti for a few hundred crowns. The good stuff. I had one, but then I realized it was just taking up space.

Oh, and the cake tokens are not a lie. Happy Anniversary!

I'll probably do this, not sure. I'm glad to see they've made a year and I was there for most of it.

Anyway, just like punkin, this guy spawns in clockwork tunnels, so just look for d9 stages with clockwork tunnels and farm those. It'll still waste your energy, but you won't have to run entire gates looking for them.
