I guess it's still the most efficient and easiest way to have players log in as often as possible. Collecting regularly those things usually give an extra artifact so most people go for it. The alternative would be to make some kind of mini games or something to win the extra artifacts and force people to log in more often and that would take a lot of coding... Personally I'm fine with this, I really don't need an extra Elvenar related activity to suck up even more of my timeI noticed that. Very big bright shovels. I wish they'd stop making us collect stuff up from around the city outskirts though. The novelty of that wore off about 4 years ago. I would have thought it would be something to do once or twice for a bit of fun.
