Stuff we don't need
« on: April 18, 2011, 06:44:50 AM »
I was thinking it would be useful to have a list of stuff we definitely don't need (at this stage) so we can sell it without worrying that it's needed for a quest.
I haven't been able to find anything about the following items, so I'm hoping they are not needed for a quest. Some confirmation would be good though.

dead chinchilla
shiny stones
quartz
witch's hat
witch's broom
mounted grimstag trophy

I'll add to the list if I find more, and if they are needed for a quest, then perhaps we could also have a thread for items to keep for quests.

Cheers

I did a quest where my blacksmith had to go into the forest and catch a dire chincilla to perform sword sharpness tests on it. (can't remember the name)

wildflowers

Aside from the first quest at game start there's really no purpose for them that I've found.

I'm not playing my physician at the moment, but I'm pretty sure you need wildflowers to make potions (according to the wikia).

I think Carl did have one, but it may be down for editing or something, or maybe it was the food recipes I was looking at.

Wildflowers are used by those heros that make potions: physician, wizard, and spy. I know my physician definitely used wildflowers and I think my spy did too, I'd have to check that though.

Yeah, spy uses them too.  I thought grass was going to be useless but all the potion makers pretty much use everything including some weird stuff.  The blacksmith also uses some strange things.  Like you have to have bear meat in your inventory to make bear armor.  With the blacksmith, and the spy, I discovered it was a good idea to have "ingredients" in my inventory as well as stocked on any apparatus I use.

Agreed with all the above ... collect everything you can!  Everything has a use somewhere, either on a crafting table or in recipes [although I haven't discovered a use for pond slime yet, I bet there is one!!].  Even the Market Trader can use wildflowers for trading with one of the other countries [I forget which one at the moment].  It only takes a few seconds while walking from A to B to stop and pick stuff and then move on.

Anyone find a use yet for pond scum or toads?  They're the biproducts of leech gathering.

I'm sure one of the quests I've done required a freshwater toad at some point.  That's the only use I've ever seen for toads.  But pond scum has no use that I'm aware of.

Yeah....good topic.  I have the witch's hat and broom.  Is it a decor?  Or do you hand it off to your merchant to sell?

I think most Quest-related stuff just sits in your Sim's Inventory. 

I doubt very much it ever get used again, but just in case I leave it sitting there.

Believe it or not, they can be sold in the merchant's stall.  Once I was playing the merchant and the doctor together on a quest and the merchant needed to open her business as a responsibility.  She didn't have anything to sell right at that moment and couldn't open, so rather than shirk the responsibility I took the pond scum from the doctor's inventory and put it in her stall.  It sold for 2 simoles!   ;D

That's hilarious.  I guess pond scum is more attractive that we think. ;D

The mounted trophies can be put on the walls as decorations.

What about magic crystals? Does anyone know a use for them? They sell for quite a lot, but I wouldn't want to sell them if I need them for a quest. When you're actually looking for something like that, you never seem to find it. I have spent FOREVER this evening going for strolls in the forest looking for the arcane edge and for mystic metal fragments!

I'm curious about the witch's hat and broom, too.  I've gotten it three times, but have never found a use for it.

Mystic metal fragments sometimes found in interactions patrolling anywhere.  Sometimes via mermaid encounters or battles with pirates at sea.  I got most of mine at sea but got one yesterday coming back from the shoppe.  Mmmm, think I got one battling the beast also.  I KNOW it's where I got the doomsday sword pieces but never both pieces with the same hero.

I wound up with two witches hats and brooms with one hero so sold off one of each.  Still no clue as to what they may or may not be useful for.  I do know there is a couple of items in buy mode that talk about them being a place to hold or display quest items.  Two wall shelves and a couple of bookcase looking things that are empty.  Haven't tried them though.

dead chinchilla
shiny stones
quartz
witch's hat
witch's broom
mounted grimstag trophy


Confirming that I have not yet found a use for any of these beyond selling, and I've played a lot. I have also found no use for Pond Scum, but Toads were required for something that I can't quite remember now.  Possibly Nurse With A Curse quest.

well i looked through the responses and noticed no one had anything to say about the Grimstag Trophy, so i thought i would put my two cents out there. if u have it in your inventory you can just click and drag it onto a wall and it becomes a free item! i know it was pretty need when i found out too.

And for the shiny stones and quarts, they can be given to your trader to trade to Tictop for simoles. shine stones are worth 5 simoles and the quarts are worth 10.

The witches hat and broom i think can also be a free decoration item if you drag and drop it into the world, either that or the hat can at least be worn i would imagine. since i did get another hat from the Frgo quest which became a wearable item after i completed it.

Today I discovered that a single Shiny Stone is needed by the Blacksmith on the quest 'Cutting Edge'.

How about the bag of truffles from the bounty hunt: boar quest? Can you do anything with them but sell?

Also the Live Chinchilla is a great decoration.

I can't wear the witch's hat, or place the hat or broom inworld from inventory. Only drops I could place were the chinchilla and the trophies.
