UNLOCK THE BEAUTY Mar and Scar has a Pelt unlocking certificate, Mairanu says, "My favorite thing is that, after years, I was finally able to unlock my pelt bag fully! I know that I could've always bought a fully unlocked one on the PC, but I was always just so attached to mine, y'know?" Yes, we know, Mairanu! Mar and Scar room 23801, building
ENHANCIVES There's a bunch of nice, not-too-expensive combat enhancives (e.g. 125 BS for a +3 agility ankle-cuff) at Bloodriven Bowery. Fyonn's take from it, "They're not rechargable at the guild, but they last longer than I thought they would. I'm stocking up!" Bloodriven Bowery room 23754, building

ILLUSION IN A BOTTLE Archales' plan for the pale violet wing-shaped talisman from the Messy Alchemist? "It is an amazing buy at just 250 bloodscrip. Now I can finally blend in at home in Cysaegir." The Messy Alchemist room 23742, building

NERVE STAFF Archsenex recommends the nerve staff. "6x acuity with t4 nerve flares? It’s awesome, extra damage and cman bonus. For a wizard, 10 ranks is huge." Find them in the side yard at the Old Farmhouse. Old Farmhouse room 23722
FLARING UAC Rock Solid has 5x realms flaring and sanctified UAC gear, "It is choice," was Oubar's thumbs up on eonake-studded gauntlets & matching eonake-toed boots. Rock Solid room 23822, wagon
6x FLARING DOUBLES Oubar dubs the 6x acid-flaring doubles at A Flash of Strength, "drool-worthy". Gotta love wordsmiths, right? There's no doubt where his recommendation stands on a smooth leather bodysuit marred with acid etchings. A Flash of Strength room 23747, structure
PRETTY BOLTING Premade bolt spell customizations in Spellbound are dubbed "Pretty Nifty" by Gavrien. Spellbound room 23806, space

BIND ALL THE THINGS Look for the tightly wound white string totem at Spellbound. Ayumia thinks they are fun for mid-level wizards with 2x Magic Item Use to make up to 20 Earthen Fury casts a day even nastier! At no mana cost to boot. Spellbound room 23806, space
SILKEN WEBS ...of death. Even monsters deserve to die a little more humanely, and now your bolt Webs can be silken with the white web token at Spellbound. Leafiara concluded, "Give your opponent a small touch of comfort as they fade and pass through the Ebon Gate." Spellbound room 23806, space

FOREST LOVE Lunawyn was an early fan of the T4 Forest Armor from Autumnal Den, and LOVES it. "I have had a great time hunting with it. I already made it mine with the help of a kind seamstress, got it lightened, and it's literally getting even more wonderful by the day. I will wear it for many many levels." Autumnal Den room23743, entrance
UNARMED HEAVEN There's a set of kelyn boots and gloves for unarmed combat that is great for lower level monks (or non-monks UACing from the open) at Bare Aggression. Fyonn notes, "The knockdowns keep you alive while you're tiering up, and the speed of UAC means you'll have lots of chances to get them. At only 250 BS each, they're a bargain." Bare Aggression room 23756, hall
MOODY ARTIST A beautifully executed white on white canvas was left at the TownCrier headquarters, clearly making a statement about the creative potential and release found in the arts.

WHISKEY CHASER "Empathic Focus is one of the coolest spells that can't be found," a shopper who didn't want to be named told this reporter.

Look it up at: Under the Counter room 23810, establishment

The cost to benefit ratio fits most people's ideas of a winner! Old Farmhouse room 23722
VEIL OF INTRIGUE Phanna sings the praises of a long strip of obsidian brocade at Veiled Purposes. It is a really neat, inexpensive feature hiding headscarf that is also versatile with its description types. When worn, it hides age, hair, face, nose, unique mark, and unique line, adding: "The rest of her features are concealed by a jeweled tulle veil hanging from her obsidian brocade headscarf." It shows up in the visible inventory as a jeweled tulle veil. There is also a turban version, too! Veiled Purpose room 23744, pavilion
NERVE STAFF FAN CLUB Zyyen is adding his vote to the lacquered scrollworked illthorn runestaff for the best buy at Bloodriven Village. He says, "Awesome staff!"

BRAVING ALL ADVENTURES Fulmen is stocking up on the bravery crystals from the back room at Gamac's Goods. There's 10 rubs in them, for only 20 bloodscrip.

COVER UP IN STYLE Don't overlook the already unlocked whisper cloaks at The Cover Up. Fulmen gives them two thumbs up, "They weigh 7lbs, hold 150lbs, are pretty fun, and have like a dozen verbs to play with!" Yes, one of them is whisper. Also, the less expensive ones are not unlocked. It's easier to get it altered than it is to get it unlocked, Just saying! The Cover Up room 23730, building
