    Introducing monster slaying contracts!

    To obtain a contract, find Heracles the hunter near West Britain bridge and double click him. Target a statue in your pack (it will consume the statue!) and he will present you with a contact to fulfill. There are no limits on contracts and you can get as many as you wish.

    After you kill a monster you open the contract and press the "Add Corpse" button to claim it. You will get a target cursor to target the corpse. You can only add corpses of the monsters you personally kill. When you add the corpse, the corpse is immediately removed so loot beforehand.

    Once a contract is given, you have 7 days to fulfill it. If you cannot complete the task then the contract will be voided.

    Once the contract is completed, double click Heracles and target the completed contract to receive your reward.

    1. Fletching powerscrolls 105 - 120
    2. Bloody Explosion Relic
    3. Character Statue Maker
    4. Level 7 Treasure Maps
    5. Mounted Pixie
    6. Flag of Domination

    Are the contracts character bound or can they be traded?

    Will the available rewards stay the same or do you plan to switch them out?

    This has the potential to be fantastic...

    But I see 3 key things that may need to be addressed:

    1) Kills should be automatically counted.

    Wow. This is the biggest downer I see. Having to open contract & target corpse... is so... tedious and boring, when all you want to do with this system is focus on killing to rack up points!

    The FUN is in killing as many as possible!!!

    Targeting corpses is literally the complete opposite of fun...

    2) Remove the expiration time.

    Why have a 7 day expiration?

    Why can't I just slowly work towards my goal day-by-day and complete it whenever I want?

    3) Rewards are a lil awkward

    I'm sure this will be improved as we continue forward.

    But right now they just seem like random rewards picked out of a hat. They don't have a theme or logical progression yet.

    Totally agree, the clicking is what my “meh” comment was all about. Totally ruins it.





    Agreed! I do enough clicking it needs to be coded better to count kills for you.

    And the timer too, I don’t have time to grind this shit. Would rather just work on it casually. You guys need to account for the casual players too.

    Awesome!

    So, a few questions;

    1. Are ALL monsters acceptable just as long as you have a statue to target (What if I target a champ statue?)?

    2. Are the rewards based on the monster you are hunting or completely random (do I have better chances at the higher loots by doing dragons as opposed to mongbats?)?

    3. Do champ spawn monsters count as part of the collected corpses or do they have to be world spawns?

    Thanks!!

    P.S. Everyone who thinks clicking a button is the end of their fun, why not just make a macro to open the gump and click the button? Then all u gotta do is press 1 button to target the corpse... it's not THAT bad, guys :p

    1) is to make afk farming harder
    2) is needed so ppl throw shity/impossible contracts away and not just collect them
    3) some of the rewards are worthalot

    This idea sounded promising but as the details emerge it just seems like a troll.

    Monsters & # seems to be random, totally not related to the statue you use. Worst I got is Gilbarta x 235 (large spider in spider cave)

    Timer is kind of a bummer. Maybe increase the odds of a good reward based on the length of time to complete the contract if possible.

    Would be awesome to have a leader board that displayed who completed their contract the fastest etc.
