Talk:The Platinum Yendorian Express Card

I was playing as a Monk (neutral), and I got a lamp with a dijin on the first level(!). I wished for a Platinum Yendorian Express Card, but it "blew up" and killed me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Yep. It'll do that. You get blasted when trying to touch a quest artifact that isn't your own. See intelligent artifacts. --Jayt 21:48, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

When applied the PYEC will unlock.--PeterGFin 12:27, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

You mean like all credit cards?--Kahran042 05:08, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

I've been using a blessed PYEC as a Priest for a long while now, and this last time it caused my magic marker (0:3) to glow white instead of the normal "briefly" and the marker recharged to 1:50. I don't want to update the entry to say that it can occasionally do blessed chargings for non-tourists without confirmation, but I'm pretty sure that's what just happened (yay!). --Enehta 05:23, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Uncursed charging of a magic marker will round up to 50 charges. The article is not wrong about what the PYEC does, but it is wrong when it states that blessed charging of a magic marker is necessarily better -- this is only true when the charging might bump the marker beyond 50 charges.--Thefifthsetpin 03:46, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

A note. I wished for one of these. I was a neutral wizard. It blasted me (saw that coming) and then Evaded my grasp (???). Help!

To previous edit: It probably evaded your grasp because you had a bad alignment record. Gneek 05:55, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
