For information; the mercantile stone summon a merchant and the keg of ale has 50 charges. — TulipVorlax 12:13, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
If any one gets a Moss Spider Egg I would like to buy one :P -- F4Sig.jpg † F1© Talk 12:16, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

So where did you guys find Nicholas the Traveler? Black Numenorean 12:27, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

I found it on the official wiki. :-P (Ranik > near the nearest transition) — TulipVorlax
By the way, the Keg of ale has the under construction icon for me. — TulipVorlax 12:30, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

I received 3 Disco Balls, which create a Disco Ball above your head and generates a localized fireworks display. Saldonus Darkholme

Red Iris Flower[edit source]

There is a pair of those in the garden behind Eye of the North outpost. Easy. --Dreamy Lull 16:57, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

They're everywhere in the Charr Homelands, too. Qing Guang 21:44, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

What you Get[edit source]

5 Blue Rock Candies, 5 Mercantile Summoning Stones, 10 Hunter's Ale, 5 Mysterious Tonics. Should we start a 'project'? LLandale 04:24, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

You mean this Drop rate/Gift of the Traveler ? — TulipVorlax 10:01, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
This inscribable Icy Dragon Sword needs to be added to this list here 12:09, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Changing the Game![edit source]

Correct me if im wrong but i think this will change the course of the game forever! You can get some amazing items for almost doing nothing, so some of the newer players can get way good items and sell them off way before they could normally! 19:19, 25 April 2009 (UTC)Agent K

I for one welcome our new Yakkington Overlords. --Rotfl Mao 19:43, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Come on guys! since everyone will be opening them every week those items will drop in price very soon! Alex1991gw 21:23, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

LOL i cant believe i didnt think about that! 21:40, 25 April 2009 (UTC)Agent K

Beware: Annoying Variation of the Scam[edit source]

Beware: an annoying variation of the scam has been popping up:

  • Seller (in post) offers "Gift of Nicholas" for around 2-3k.
  • Instead of the expected GotT (which can sell for 3-7k right now), buyers get GotH.
  • Seller, if accused of scamming, offers to buy back unopened gifts; typically, one or more gifts has already been opened at this point.

Technically, the seller appears fair: they use the ambiguity of Nicholas' name and the price to mislead potential buyers, but they don't actually lie. They appear generous in offering refunds. They can almost reasonably claim that any responsibility rests with the buyer alone. In my opinion, still a scam because it requires the seller to depend on the good will and ignorance or inattention of the buyer.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 08:55, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Relabel of weapons in list[edit source]

I very much like RoseOfKali's relabeling of the weapons in Gift-content table. Looks better, finds an appropriate spot for the almost-not-noteworthy "max" label, and highlights the inscribability vs. uniqueness of the drops. Well done.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 18:05, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Lol, thanks, I just improved on what you started. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 16:53, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

so...[edit source]

I had some gifts stored up, so I decided to open 6 of them before deciding that it wasn't worth it. The first gift I sold after that, the buyer got a gwen doll from it. FML The El33t 04:47, January 27, 2010 (UTC)

Lolowned. I do believe however that the contents of a Gift are determined when it's opened, not when it's created, so even if you had opened that Gift you probably would have gotten 10 honeycombs. Felix Omni Signature.png 07:03, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
or not.--Sidd27 04:56, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Weird Opening Trend[edit source]

Alright. Recently, as in like the last 20 gifts I have opened 4 of the 5 prizes I got were party points. This could happen easily enough, but what makes it even stranger is that I currently have 6.2k party points. This makes me wonder if the gifts give you stuff that need for titles. Thoughts?

Not statistically significant. C3lticmatt 19:24, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Presentation of drop rates[edit source]

I'm not sure that drop rates should be in the article, but, if they were, this might be a less cluttered presentation. We certainly have enough data that drop rates are predictive enough to be included in "documentation of the game."

Item Count Total Title Points Drop Rate (Estimated)
Alcohols (~13.5%)
Hunter's Ale 10 10 5%
Aged Hunter's Ale 10 30 5%
Keg of Aged Hunter's Ale 1 150 3.50%
Party Favors (~21%)
Bottle Rocket 10 10 5%
Champagne Popper 10 10 5%
Sparkler 10 10 5%
Crate of Fireworks 5 15 3%
Disco Ball 3 21 3%
Sweets (~25.6%)
Jar of Honey 10 20 4.8%
Honeycomb 10 10 4.7%
Green Rock Candy 5 15 5.5%
Blue Rock Candy 5 25 5.3%
Red Rock Candy 5 35 5.3%
Summoning Stones (~18%)
Mysterious Summoning Stone 5 13%
Mercantile Summoning Stone 5 5%
Tonics (~19%)
Mysterious Tonic 5 25 14%
Cottontail Tonic 5 10 5%
Everlasting Cottontail Tonic 1 0.13%
Miniatures (~0.5%)
Miniature Gwen Doll 1 0.04%
Miniature Yakkington 1 0.08%
Miniature Brown Rabbit 1 0.49%
Weapons (~1%)
Vampiric Dragon Sword 1 0.23%
Traveler's Bo Staff 1 0.23%
Traveler's Walking Stick 1 0.11%
Icy Dragon Sword 1 0.19%
Ascalon Razor 1 0.26%
Other Items (~0.5%)
Moss Spider Egg 1 0.26%
Everlasting Crate of Fireworks 1 0.24%

We could also use small images in addition to or in place of the item names.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:24, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Ooh, nice table. Would look great in the article -- RandomTime 19:32, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure if the table matches tables already present elsewhere in the wiki, or if it should be adjusted further to conform to standards... Regarding the content itself, I believe a few items are 'off' from where I reviewed the data...
When I compiled the data, I did so by lumping all the title capable items under each title. This left me with 'Weapons' and 'Other', where 'other' consisted of the egg, minipets and everlasting items. 'Other' worked out roughly 0.5% of the total (+/- about 0.13%), and broke down thus: 51% eggs, 7% gwen, 10% yakk, 9% mini bunny, 12% everlast tonic, and 10% everlast crate. Low end of the margins are near 4%, and the high end was a bit over 20%, but I saw no reason for the minipets to be different, as they are like items. So I made the call as 50% Eggs, 10% for the rest, and assumed this 'other' was 0.5% of the total. So my (crude) estimate is -> Moss Egg: .25%, Minis: .05%/ea, everlast items: .05%/ea. Yamagawa 10:19, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
We have an inconsistency. Either Everlasting Cottontail Tonic needs to move down to "Other", or Everlasting Crate of Fireworks needs to move up to "Party favors". —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 14:21, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
I've pulled the everlasting fireworks down into 'Other', reasoning being it doesn't count toward title, and also that at that low a rate it's not even a bump in the road compared to the other party items. I've used my actual estimates in fixing some of the rates, it looks as though other estimates came from elsewhere, these are now not entirely consistent with each other, but at least there's no glaring errors. Yamagawa 16:45, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Rarity?[edit source]

So, any reason a collector item is rated as 'Rare'? I'm half inclined to make whatever edits are necessary to have that say 'Collector' instead. After all, if you have the mats and walk out to him, it's not like you have to do 200 runs to get one gift. Yes, supply is limited, but that's not the same thing as rare. Yamagawa 18:47, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Rarity in the infobox is based on the color of the item's name. It is not a subjective assessment of how easy the item is to obtain. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:58, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
I stand corrected. Yamagawa 19:15, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
