    Default Speak to me of collections, please.

    So, will there be collections? Weather they are kill/harvest/explore/other things?

    When no one else is on from your guild, or no friends are playing, its nice to not just grind...but grind with a purpose...namely, kill 20 million spiders, explore the whole frickin world solo..

    Anyone know if there will be anything like this?

    (And before the flames and ZOMG-NOs come in, you can't deny that collections are popular..and add time to a games playability...unless you don't like em, of course!)

    I don't get what you mean by collections?

    Do you mean like achievements?

    They have mentioned that there will be an achievement system. What the exact achievements are would be anyone's guess. I seem to remember someone asking if they will be tracking stuff like number of deaths/methods of dieing/kill numbers/etc. I think the response was a big maybe.

    EQ2 collections:

    You see a little "?" on the ground..you gather it...and get a piece of a colloection...anywhere from 3-25 things to complete the collection...get a prize of a piece of jewelry/armour/gear from it...something related to the collection.

    Kill 25 Kobolds...Get an achievement and AA points...

    Explore a whole zone (meaning run past the 25 dfferent points required) and get AAs for it

    EQ2 AAs = http://achievements.xalmat.com/

    SWG collections:

    Kill 100 Imperial fighters, 50 imp bombers, 25 gun ships (and a few others) that are all Tier 1 and get XP for the T1 completion.

    Kill imp T1/2/3/4/ and 5, get a schematic for a gun ship.

    Kill 100 of a certain mob and get XP/possibly title

    Kill a boss mob 5 times, earn a title.

    Kill all boss mobs in a zone/instance = Title

    LOTRO;

    kill 500 spiders, get a title

    Kill 5000 spiders, get a better title

    Earn 10 titles, get a really nice title


    I am sure other games have had them, too. these are just a few examples...

    a ton of the things in that list are achievements, more so than collections anyways...

    I started on SWG...so, anything like this is a collection to me...killing a certain mob, regardless of the game, is a collect. (For me)

    But yea, they are achievements in EQ2...and another name in LOTRO, IIRC.

    Yeah, on Gamer Day my toon started a collection of books. There are sparkly books you can find with little lore sniplets that you can put into a collection. Another collection I heard about were tears from small adorable animals. Plus there are achievements.

    Love em. The more the better. I have wasted the better part of 20 minutes getting the timing just right, on multiple pathing mobs, to be able to run in and grab a shiney...too much fun
