<div></div>That sounds like a good idea.  If they do have trophies like that....they need to be really cool lookin with a lot of thought put into them.  Not just some statue.

I really like this idea. Personally I want to see a lot more home placeable items. I was also curious why some there is no status reduction on trophys and hertiage items that are home placable? Most of thoses quests are a lot of work so would be nice to see some status reduction on them also.Rheassi<div></div>

It might get to be a little much if there was one for like every named in SOS lol. And the HQ and L&L trophies do need status reduction on them. I've been taking some down to make space for items that help my rent <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></font><div></div>

I just wish there were more little baubles and knicknacks. I love the place settings people have been coming up with, but why don't we have plates, bowls, serving dishes? What about ink bottles and quills, small baskets, house plants, statuettes? The little things you find in anyone's home. I think they did a step in the right direction with the new T6 rares, I especially love the little vase and the small candle lamps. I love the idea of boss mob trophies, but remember the splitpaw boar heads? You couldn't get rid of those things for a while. If they are going to do that they should make it a (repeatable) quest reward, that way you don't get stuck trying to deal with looting them during a raid. <div></div>

<div></div>Like many I am coming back to everquest 2 after playing other games for awhile. After playing everquest 1 again and some others I spent some time in DAoC. In game they have this already implemented and its a huge HUGE hit which could be one reason we dont have it.<a href="http://daoc-trophy-mobs.com/" target="_blank">http://daoc-trophy-mobs.com/</a>People spend hours hunting down the monsters needed for the drops, and the dragons and epic mobs get rolled on easily more often then some of the actual items themselves. The have everything from wall mounted head and plaques, to huge floor mounted statues worthy of being in a museum. <span>:smileysurprised:I for one would love this feature and would love to see housing taken as far as it can go.<span>:smileyvery-happy:</span></span><div></div><p>Message Edited by Purplecrustacean on <span class=date_text>08-02-2006</span> <span class=time_text>08:16 AM</span>

The same way you get AA xp whenever you kill a named mob the first time you could get a small trophie when you kill them the first time to.

Yeah, that works too.. .I just think the quest idea makes it so you don't have to get one if you don't want to, gives a touch of extra exp, and if they allowed it to be repeatable, let you get multiples of any particular trophy for use in building. Also, if it is a quest reward, then it won't matter if the mob is grey to you, you won't get AAXP but you will still be able to get the update/trophy. I know there are many mobs I was not able to get to kill before they turned grey, and I don't necessarily want to mentor down to try and get each one I may want. <div></div>

I think the trophy idea is great -- but only if they don't count towards the item count in a house, or they increase the limits. Its practically impossible to include every quest and collection item as it is <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />.

<DIV>Hmmm..looks like the trophy idea may already be in place <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV><A href="http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=quest&message.id=117410" target=_blank>http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=quest&message.id=117410</A></DIV>

<div></div>This may be a little elaborate for a trophy idea, and would probably have untold consequences to server lag and such, but it kinda tickles my fancy.The basic item is "Mighty Adventurer's Picture Frame -- The Defeat of <insert monster name here>" (or something similar that's less cheesy-sounding) and when placed on your wall looks like artwork of a slain dragon or some such.  However, when one right clicks on it and examines it, up pops an option to view a screenshot of your group/raid surrounding the monster you just defeated.Or the item could be "Mighty Adventurer's Photo Album" which, when examined, pops up a window wherein you can view a slideshow of multiple screenshots of defeated monsters.When you defeat an epic monster, if you are flagged as possessing this picture frame/photo album, you get an option to take a screenshot and add it to your photo album, or when you take the screenshot, a new picture frame appears in your inventory that you can hang on your wall.  Something like that.<div></div><p>Message Edited by KSaint on <span class=date_text>08-06-2006</span> <span class=time_text>04:54 PM</span>
