Out of the Blue

Hudson the wonder dog came into my office last night and started making some hacking noises before the overpowering smell of skunk filled the room. Sure enough my little hunter had another encounter with one of Pepe Le Pew's kin. Though it's been a while since one of these episodes of Wild Kingdom, clearly her technique has not suffered, as she managed to once again close the gap before any shots were fired to catch most of the vile spray in her mouth. This makes clean-up less painful (for me at least) as a little mopping with our nature's Miracle Skunk Odor Remover (no, tomato juice does not work) gets most of the stench off of her, but I am having a hard time getting rid of the smell in my office from where she hacked up some of this stuff right after it happened.

The smell gets positively intoxicating, so updates may get wackier if this persists.

Are there actual crafting/customizations skills/professions or is it literally buying the (finite) kits, break crap down, lugging crap around my inventory, and hoping I stumble upon a crafter NPC that can make something nice? Speaking of space, is there a GW bank or storage center?

The guys 'making something nice' are in towns. They're not troublesome to find. Collectors generally have useless crap. I don't bother with them at all post-searing. And yes, there is a bank, like the chest in diablo2, run by something called Xunlai. Also accessible in most towns.

Just be sure to spend a lot of time in the catacombs pre-searing. Dye is a lot more common there, and black dye fetches thousands of gold post-searing.

EDIT: About that rave... Seems to be some disagreement concerning whether they had all the permits they needed. But after seeing footage of someone dressed as a soldier kicking the shit out of someone, I'd consider this a minor point.
