This Birthday event actually renewed my interest in the game. I had written a letter in December 2013 of how I was going to quit the game and give all my stuff away. My last update to that letter was actually March 2, 2014.
This birthday event made me establish characters on all the servers. I only had Thelanis, Khyber, and Orien to do before this event so that part is now out of the way.
From Silver Daily Dice, which I do religiously, I now have plat, XP Potions, Heroism Potions, Haste Potions, various types of tomes, and your favorite, Siberys Spit Cakes on all servers.
From the Silver Daily Dice, I have even leveled up characters that were close on some servers(Argonesson, Cannith, Ghallanda, Sarlona, and Wayfinder) that I will have to log back in on each server to see what character has leveled.
The birthday event has given me +3 Ability tomes, +3 skill tomes, Mnemonic Potions, Raid Timers, and Jewelry kits on all servers.
The chase for the elusive IX or X has been a grind, but is rewarding when you score.
I have traded cards with others on every server except Sarlona. Sarlona is my base or control server, because I like to understand the frequency of rare items during events. I already ground out cards on Sarlona today(March 29, 2014), and once again, no IX or X.
I know by my trading I have helped out other players that have not been able to score a certain card and since I have the card I can make their day a bit happier.
The only negative has been that I have done very little questing as I am logging in and out and in and out and in and out ad nauseum for the IX and/or X. But that is MY choice.
At this time, I wonder what the 10th Anniversary will be like? Can you top this?
