Welcome to EQ2i

Hello and welcome to EQ2i! Thank you for [[Special:Contributions/{{subst:PAGENAME}}|your contributions]], especially your recent edits to the File:Frizella Emberblossom.jpg page. We hope you decide to stay. Please edit to your heart's content and don't worry overmuch about using templates or "getting it right." If you're unsure of how to use any of our templates at the site, don't panic! Just start a new article and place {{wikify}} at the top of the page. Another editor will take care of the rest. Here is some general information you might find useful:

And here are some very basic editing tips:

  • If you need something deleted, place {{delete|the reason here}} on the top of the page.
  • If you see something where you know the name is not right, use the "move" link to change the name of the page.
  • If you find a page name that you are unsure if it has the correct name, place {{CapCheck|suggested correct spelling}} on the top of the page.
  • For information that you would like others to verify in-game use {{FactCheck|what you need checked}}.
  • And if all else fails and you're just not sure what to do, place {{Admin Needed|the reason here}} on the top of the page. There is also the "Report Problems" link that should appear on all pages; it is a help-ticket system that all wikia.com wikis are using.

If you need any additional help, just drop by my talk page or any of the admin's talk pages. We'd be glad to help.

Crab Traps[]

I keep reverting your changes about the full vs. empty crab traps on Mischief Managed: Duty and the Beast‎ because if you have on nightvision (ProfitUI, for example) or if you have your graphics on low settings it can be difficult to impossible to see the crab. I compromised by mentioning both alternatives, people can look if they wish, or click blindly if they wish--both methods work. --User:Sigrdrifa (Talk) 03:08, March 24, 2019 (UTC)

There is only one thing NEEDS to be accomplished for quest update:
clicking on a trap that has a CRAB in it.
Nothing more.
Visually inspecting traps SAVES TIME.
The re-editted statement now does not state that.
I am one, however, who would choose to free those from onerous burdens; In addition to making clear everyone's Understanding, better to turn the light on, as opposed to running around in the dark,...
1ea. click, as opposed to 5,000 clicks.
I can respect those who choose to Role-play (i.e my "blind" Ratonga monk who runs around with Infravision all the time to simulate said blindness, however, Ratonga's can also rely on their hearing, i.e. Sonicvision, when sensing heat fails.)
So, those who choose to run in a limited format, for whatever reason, is their responsibility, and since they choose this, can already accommodate the variables.

Remind me again,.. how does just LOOKING at a trap,.. update a quest?!
revert back to my more CLEARLY understood changes please. Thank You.

It's correct that you only should be able click on traps that have a crab in it, according to the update notes.
Question have you done the updated quest and are you able to confirm that change?
If so please leave a note on the Talkpage.

with the statement "updated quest," I was performing the trap verification a day or so ago; was there any updates/changes since then? Since I knew of the superfluousness of clinking on traps with no crab, I did not click any others that did not obviously have a crab within. Ceyarrecks (talk) 15:18, March 25, 2019 (UTC)

There was only 1 update. I did the quest before that update and clicking on trab that ain't had a crab in it gave a message like "nothing" in there. Then i looked for an other trap saw a crab in it, so i clicked it and the quest updated.
As you say it, that part ain't changed.
Question remains: Can you only click trab that have a crab in it or can you still click any trab ? (even it doesn't update the quest)

I can answer that question :)
The answer is in the affirmative, yes, proven by both my friend's characters and my second tradeskilled Ratonga--only visually inspected traps, no click when no crab seen, found trap with crab, clicked, quest updated.
Also, on a side note, I *think* the trap with the crab never changes, I provided "last known loc" on a previous, now lost, edit. I can run another TS character through again if need be. (was just before a partially buried rock, as one faces into the Walrus and Othmir area)
