so it appears by opening up a block for monstalogy in the north, (intentionally or not... but we did do that by clearing the block we did yesterday), we have triggered some major changes with the monsters that have been populated on TA. either that, or it was pure coincidence that the changes happened the same day. anyway, it appears all monsters who previously dropped items on TA (scientist droped whatsits, executioner and others dropped flasks, two key monsters dropped universal keys, and any monster who dropped silvers... basically anything which could not be sold on the market)... these monsters no longer drop these items! however, it appears that all other items are now being dropped in place of these. that being said, it's time for some new strategies in releasing monsters... at least some of them. turns out that spokesman in forest has been used a ton already in the last 22 hours or so. so between those currently in chat, we're currently working on dropping a delegate on the same square. and if possible, we'd like to leave it as only those two monsters (plus the two high-lvl high-hp monsters already there) for at least a few days, if not for the long haul. after that, i think it's up for debate what we drop where. my opinion is to use the former scientist square the arena square, and the square south of telegate for strategic releases, since there are few pop'ed monsters on each of those. of course, that's up for debate if you wish. things like imageboxes (pictubes), vampires (herbs), the cubulus (cubes), centaur shaman/titan (grass), old flame/granite dragons (horns), etc might be options. --jason so anything that cannot be sold on markets can no longer be found with repopulated monsters, but any items which can be listed on market are now dropped on TA.
