how do you get FJ points?
User avatar #3661 to #757 - lastofthedovakhiin (02/20/2013) [-]
I believe by getting thumbs. Be it may by comment or content. If you aren't clever, you can trade items for points. So start collecting.
User avatar #3276 to #757 - picamix (01/16/2013) [-]

Let's go over chests and keys. What they do, how they are used, and how to get them.

Chests are some of many items you can obtain throughout your experience as an Item Collector. There are nine different types of chest/key combinations.
1. Wooden chest + wooden key
2. Iron chest + iron key
3. Dwarven Mecha chest + dwarven mecha key
4. Thumbs up chest + thumbs up key
5. Fabulous chest + fabulous key
6. Radioactive chest + radioactive key
7. Angelic chest + angelic key
8. Demonic chest + demonic key
9. Crystal chest + crystal key

What are they used for?
The overall purpose of chests and keys for most item collectors are to open them, and redeem the treasures that lay within.

How do I open a chest?
In order to open a chest, you have to combine it with the matching key. "How do I combine them?"
Well, you can combine chests & keys by placing them in the item workshop. (The item workshop can be found on your profile. So if you're ever looking for it, go to your profile, head to the item section, and check the top right corner of the section. It should show "Item Workshop".)
When you access the Item Workshop, browse through your items and find the chest & key. When you find them, click on them, enter the quantity you want to put in, and hit ok. When you have a set of matching chest/keys, hit combine, and bam! You now have opened your chest, and received the items that was inside it.
User avatar #1621 to #1620 - sacredmatrix (10/14/2012) [-]
How do I get chests/keys?
Every chest/key is obtainable through drops. The only chest/key that is NOT obtainable through drops, are Crystal chests and crystal keys. You can obtain crystal and keys through other chests. When you open a chest, you have a chance of getting a crystal chest or a crystal key, or even both! The better the chest, the higher chance you have of getting it.

You can also obtain angelic and demonic chests/keys through different combinations! Here's a list of what you can combine in order to get a demonic/angelic chest/key.
15 demonic ingots + empty wooden chest = Demonic chest + demonic key
15 angelic ingots + empty wooden chest = Angelic chest + angelic key
10 demonic ingots + wooden chest + wooden key = Demonic chest + demonic key
10 angelic ingots + wooden chest + wooden key = Angelic chest + angelic key
400 demonic tickets = Demonic chest + demonic key
400 angelic tickets = Angelic chest + angelic key
Demon skull + 1 demonic ingot = Demonic chest + key

You can also obtain a wooden chest + key:
10 locked chests = Wooden chest + key

As of now, these are the only possibilites to create a chest or key through combinations (aside from gambling, which shall be explained in a bit).
User avatar #1622 to #1621 - sacredmatrix (10/14/2012) [-]

What can I get from chests?
When you open a chest, you have a chance of getting many different items. The most common items you obtain from chests are ores and tickets, however you also have a possibility of obtaining rares from chests.
The amount of items you get from a chest is solely based on the quality of the chests. You usually obtain a few items when opening a wooden or iron chest, however, you obtain many different (15+) items from opening angelic, demonic or radioactive chests.

There are also crystal chests, which ONLY drop crystal related items.

When you open a chests, you always obtain an empty version of the chest, which, at the moment have no purpose (aside from empty wooden chests).

Note: You always have the chance of obtaining nothing but an empty chest when you open a chest. It's pretty frequent, so don't get confused when it happens.

Gambling is used to increase the amount of chests/keys you have. In order to gamble, you have to combine a chest + key combination along with a Bloodstone Gambler (which is also obtained from drops).
When you combine a matching set of chests/keys with a Bloodstone Gambler, you have a 25% chance to get either 4 of the same keys (same type of keys you put in), 4 of the same chests (same type of chests you put in), or 4 of the same chests AND 4 of the same keys (same type of chests & keys you put in).
This doesn't mean you have a 75% of getting something, it means that there's a 25% chance of getting either of the three possibilites, and there's a 75% chance of you getting nothing.

It's a risky, but fun gamble, which is solely based on luck.

That is basically everything you need to know about chests & keys. If you have any questions, ask here, or ask on the Items Board.

*I apologize for any typos.

How do you open mystery boxes?
User avatar #3072 to #3071 - sacredmatrix (12/22/2012) [-]
Put them in the item workshop with the amount of FJ Points required to open it (it says how many you need within the description).

Though, I wouldn't say it's worth it, as it only gives one chest + key set, depending on which one you open.

I got a RIT, but have no idea how to use it
#1715 to #1693 - lordling (10/16/2012) [-]
on its own you cant do anything with it but if you read the item description it will tell you that if you combine 1000 you get 2 chests or keys, 5000 for 20 chests or keys and 20000 for 70 chests or keys. if you combine the right chest with the right key i opens up and gives you loads of loot like ores or gems or rare items.

How rare are bats?
#3702 to #3659 - lordling (02/21/2013) [-]
they are very uncommon, you may occasionally see then drop as a normal item but you will have a better chance of getting them from demonic or angelic chests.

luckily i got one and now have a demonic bat!!
#3705 to #3704 - lordling (02/21/2013) [-]
lol well done, now you just need an elder and an angelic to complete the set
#3706 to #3705 - julesk (02/21/2013) [-]
ye i think it will be a while

#3707 to #3706 - lordling (02/21/2013) [-]

DON'T RELOAD ITEMS ON ANY BOARD, OR ANY CONTENT! JUST CLICK ON ANY COMMENT # (recommend you click on a comment that has no replies or images/gifs etc.) AND THEN RELOAD!! IT'S MUCH FASTER!!   
If you're not sure who is exactly a  "Trusted User", ask around on the board! There are plenty of users that know who to trust.

If you're not sure what something is worth ask before trading it.

Paras is a scammer, **** Paras.

ffffyou has most items, so if you need to check what you're missing check out his profile.

No rolling on the item board.

Nobody will get a rare for doing this.

are you ******* retarded? i gave blooddrunk his crossbow back a long time ago... ask him yourself, we made up and we are friends now... the board has generally accepted me now but i guess some retards like you who still haven't heard about the situation still try to get involved in a situation which doesn't concern you and is over

Don't brag about items you collect.
Don't ask for handouts, you probably won't get anything and are likely to be red thumbed.
Don't spam. It doesn't make the drop rate any higher.
Do be courteous and pleasant with other members, no one likes a douche and most people are pretty cool on the items board.
Do watch out for scammers, there are several out there so be careful.
Do check with the board before accepting a trade, especially if a rare is included.

And finally,
Whatever you do, never, ever, under any circumstances, say it's happening.
User avatar #1007 to #1002 - ThisIsMyOtherName (10/06/2012) [-]
Also, "r" is your friend in collecting items. It makes the items refresh much faster than reloading the page and could be the difference between getting that rare or just missing it.
User avatar #1028 to #1002 - picamix (10/06/2012) [-]
i say it whenever lots of rares appear
so you can, just some people dont like it

P.S. you probably won't get free demonic/angel ores for free any time soon. They are extremely valuable right now, so be careful how you use them

Quick Tip (Not sure if this was already said):
If you are trying to pick up an uncommon item (apples, ores, etc.), don't try to rush as if you're trying to pick up a rare. Take your time, and make sure you don't screw up the caption. If you do make a mistake, and get it wrong, try to make sure to get the next one right, so you don't get a one-minute ban, and have the possibility of missing a rare that may drop during your minute ban.

And other information:
1. Click on the caption in order to change it to a different one.
2. If you get two captions wrong in a row, you get a one minute ban, which sucks.
3. Sooner or later, you will get acquainted with items, you will find out which items aren't that important/shouldn't waste your time with. If you see an item that looks unfamiliar/simply pops out, it's most likely a rare/new item, and you should go for it.
4. There's a ton of sarcasm in the thread/false information ("Yeah, you should definitely trade those rares for a potato"), and other things. Though, you can tell if someone's lying/joking around from simply common sense.
5. Don't try to brag and say "(Item) get" when a rare drops, or anything similar to it. You'll bound to get red thumbs, unless you're aiming for that.
6. Don't be afraid to post a question or anything on the board, and if nobody answers your question, just post it again, you'll bound to get an answer eventually. The board gets a lot of comments every minute, and it's likely that your post will get flooded out.
7. Press the "R" key to refresh the comments, and to refresh the items, rather than pressing F5 to refresh the page, or simply clicking on the "Refresh Comments" button. (If you're looking for mostly rares, just hold down "R" or keep pressing it. It's likely that once the rare drops, you'll be able to see it. (Though pay attention, you might end up holding "R", believing you clicked on the item when you do see it, but end up clicking on a different item that dropped right after it.

Be aware, people try to steal away your FunnyJunk Points.

Use an isolated comment for collecting items, for example, I made this comment, favorited it, then deleted it. funnyjunk.com/items/973778#items So I can always go back to it, and use it, and it gives me the least amount of lag when I hold down "r" to refresh items

Know what items people are looking for at the time. People right now pay well for Badges, fabric, angelic/demonic ore, corrupt souls, ect. Take advantage of that, and use these common items as practice to speed up your captcha entering time.

If something good pops up, never assume it's gone yet regardless of when you see it, even if you refresh randomly and it's the last item, for all you know there's still time to get it.

Learn what users collect what items. Some people prioritize certain items over others, and may also pay higher for those certain items if you have them.
I would say use me as an example...what with gay and pony items...but honestly, I'm a greedy bitch and don't overpay at all lol.

The Night thread (11pm - 6am for Americans) is the best time to actually PICK UP good items...while they don't drop as often during this time, it's much easier to get a lot of them when they do. Users at this time are usually a lot harder to trade with though, and often pay low

In complete contrast, the day thread (basically 2PM - 11PM for Americans) is the hardest time to actually get the good items, but as a result, users on during the time often overpay for the items they want, since it's harder for them to actually get them themselves.
User avatar #2234 to #2233 - ragingbrony ONLINE (11/08/2012) [-]
Don't get too Eager to start trading something you pick up
Make sure you know what your items are worth, and what other items are worth. The last thing you want to do is pick up some very rare item, and trade it off for a bunch of junk everyone hates now. In short, and internet verse style, LURK MORE NEWFAG

If you are unsure if you have received (or sent) a good trade, don't be afraid to ask the thread about it. Screen shot your trade before you send it, or the trade you've recieved, and post it on the thread to ask if it's good or not. Judge based on the answers you get as well as what you WANT. You may value certain items over others for your own reasons...

such as...

1) Going for Unique count...Items will be worth more to you if you don't already have them, and be worth less to others if they have more than one (and they're going for unique as well). People may also try to charge more from you if they know you want it badly.

2) Going for collection... If you are trying to get a lot of certain items, you might value these items more than others. I, for example, like Pony and gay/Fabulous items. In big trades, I like seeing a lot of Pony Figurines, Fabulous Glasses, Pony Tails, etc. Where as many other people would find these items useless and worthless to them.
