In an amusing use of a Station Cash illusion item, clever player Meha turned himself into a treasure chest and planted himself where the normal chest would drop in a public quest raid. Apparently, the actual chest hadn’t dropped, so they took matters into their own hands to lighten the mood. Needless to say, player Rabbie from Butcherblock and his guild The Black Knights were laughing at the ensuing chaos:
Everyone ran to him, clicked on him, there was shouting, snickering, and cursing indeed. Then about 5 minutes later, someone else did it, off to the side. And half the zone thought “Look, it’s over there!” and swarmed to the new chest. And there was more shouting, snickering, and cursing…
Not everyone found it amusing, of course. But it was all in good fun, according to the Black Knights, anyway.
As other players recalled in the forum thread, this follows the tradition of pranks in the original EverQuest, where illusionists would turn themselves into money on the floor of the bank, or even more wickedly, a trickster who turned himself into a post high in the tree city, mimicking a bridge entrance high above the forest floor, sending players plummeting to their deaths!
