Oops. Ninja'ed. :) Thanks to those who pointed out that I hadn't suggested cross-year substitutions.

Also, the edit to the original post was to correct a typo. It never indicated a suggestion of cross-year substitutions.

Thanks.

I do that often also. You sometimes never catch the typos until you've made your post. :)

Yeah, irritating, isn't it? :)

I disagree with this suggestion.

#1. Yes, 2013 trophies are a bit rarer b/c of the Wertz's Relics, but that is actually a reason to *keep* the 2013 trophies' important. Because there are still plenty of veterans sore at missing out on the Relic bonanza and "all they got was a lousy monster trophy." Making the 2013 trophies easily replaceable would be like rubbing salt into their wounds.

#2. 2014 trophies are extremely plentiful. Being able to convert them into 2013 trophies is not a good idea IMHO.

#3. Even if it was not officially announced, many people have operated on the assumption that there would be a 4C token. Especially given the dissatisfaction with the Wertz situation, it would have actually been a fairly safe bet to assume that a 4C token would pop up. There has been plenty of time for people to diversify their trophy collections.

So I think that the IceCrag Hero Ear-thingy recipe should be comparable to past 4C recipes, particularly the other 3-year recipe, the Medallion of Greyhawk.
My mistake on misreading the previous post.

However, I still disagree with the suggestion of allowing any mix of 2013 trophies.

Not all are equal in value (at the moment). Genie Vapor and Direwood Thorn seem to be scarcest right now.

Historically, there have been several cases where trophies in a given year have had different values. 2009 Creeper Thorn. 2011 Rust Monster Antennae at first, and then later Gargoyle Fang.

And even with the discussion focused on just 2013 trophies: Those anticipating a 4C token, collectors, and OCD freaks, have already spent the past year trying to diversify their 2013 assortment. So it was foreseeable and not that hard to do.
