Ultima Online Clean Up Britannia Reward Dyes
Clean Up Britannia
Clean Up Britannia began as a turn-in event where players could throw away all the items they had been hording throughout the years. In an attempt to the lighten the server load, the event was created to give people can incentive to turn their excess items into new, never-before-seen armor, elaborate house decorations, and awe-inspiring dyes. It is in this article that I will showcase all these new dyes by including both a picture of my paperdoll with the dyes used, as well as riding an ethereal horse to display their real world look.
Each of these beautiful dyes currently cost 250,000 turn-in points or can be had by throwing away 25,000,000 gold into a trash receptacle. If you are looking to buy or sell them, however, the standard price is between 5,000,000 and 8,000,000 gold depending on your shard's economy. It may seem like a daunting task to collect that many points but there are, thankfuly, currently spawning items that can be turned in for points as well. Near the end of this article I will also include a few pointers for optimal point collection as well as the best hunting grounds to collect said items.
Not to be confused with Glossy Fuchsia, this dye is incredibly pink--even more so than the rare natural dye that comes from cutting up a pink flower obtained from the Naturalist Quest.
It seems a lot of these new dyes come in either 'murky', 'glossy', or 'vibrant/gleaming'. Murky Seagreen is reminiscent of a previous Treasures of Tokuno dye, Nox Green. This dye is however a little gooier-looking.
Aura of Amber
Interestingly, before this dye was brought back with the latest reward update, this dye could be seen easily fetching upwards of 30-40 million gold. This dye is very similar to the new Liquid Sunshine dye but is a just a tad darker hue.
In creating this list I think I'll never forget how to spell Fuchsia again. Glossy Fuchsia closely resembles the Tokuno dye Violet Courage but is much glossier/shinier. Quite a few dyes seem to be tweaks of old dyes.
No, your monitor doesn't need adjusting this is indeed the color they call Deep Blue. If you look closely you can see a slight hint of blue, though a more apt name might have been Night Sky instead.
This color appears to be something of a cross between Tokuno's Nox Green and Dryad Green dyes. It's actually rather pretty up close, but it does suffer from the same feeling of 'stickiness' that the other glossy dyes have.
Despite what the name suggests, Murky Amber has less in common with Aura of Amber than it does with a gooey, sticky brownish-yellow coloring. If you find a use for this that's great, but it is probably my least favorite dye.
Black and Green
This is indeed what it would look like if Black and Green were mixed. This looks like camouflage and I could see a PvPer donning this in a bid to remain hidden among the grass. It is darker than you will probably expect though.
There are a lot of blue dyes on this list and sadly none of them bare much of a resemblance to Tokuno's Invulnerability Blue dye. Even so, this is a very pretty color but as the name suggests it runs a bit dark.
This is a little too dark to be considered vibrant, but Vibrant Crimson is still a pretty dye. It seems to be a mixture of both Tokuno's Berserker Red and Rum Red dyes.
I'm a little biased since my PvPer's suit is dyed Reflective Shadow and I think it makes him look very menacing. This is exactly like the Tokuno dye, Shadow Dancer Black, except that it is shiny.
Oddly enough, for all the dyes Ultima Online has introduced there have been very few brown ones. Probably because brown is a hard color to make look appealing to players. Calling it Bronze, however, is definitely a step in the right direction as it calls up precious metals.
To compare this dye to Tokuno's Violet Courage is to do Deep Violet a great disservice. This is a very rich color that brings up memories in my mind of Chaos Blue, another color I would be incredibly excited to see added to the Clean Up Rewards.
If you're looking for a darker blue you'll probably want Star Blue instead of Shadowy Blue. Also, for me it's almost impossible to read the dye's name without also conjuring up the song, 'Starry, Starry Night' by Don McLean.
Mother of Pearl
Mother of Pearl is said to be the same color as the marble statues but a darker hue. I personally can't see any streaks of marble in it and must consider it merely a darker hue of Tokuno's Luna White dye.
Hunting For Points
A tip people don't seem to realize is that just because an item is not on the current Clean Up Item list provided by Ultima Online, it does not mean it won't give you points if thrown away. Indeed, almost anything these days can be trashed for points ranging from the minuscule to the surprisingly large. Even going to Shame and collecting a backpack of cursed armor will net you a couple hundred points.
One of my favorite hunting locations is the Exodus Dungeon because each Exodus Minion or Overseer drops a Power Crystal worth 100 points, and sometimes a Clockwork Assembly worth 50 points. The Assemblies are very heavy though so it might behoove you to bring a beetle, collect the crystals alone, or bring a Bag of Sending. It's still a fairly easy way to get a couple thousand points in an hour's time.
My friend's favorite hunting location is a spot in Doom that she refers to as the Dark Guardian room. In this room will spawn liches constantly and exponentially based on the number of players and/or pets in the room. The liches are relatively easy to kill as well, and each drop a treasure chest of a random level from 1-3 that can be turned in for between 50 and 250 points.
Now that you've seen all these wonderful dyes and know where to farm points you know what you need to do! Go out there with your sword, bow, or wand held high and look fabulous! Though, you'll never look quite as fabulous as I do! Look at me, I'm just like a PvPer!
