    Anyone completed this mission?

    I have packaged the samurai sword into a box and wrapped it, I have used birthday wrapping paper and normal. Sent the parcel to Duke twice and no mission complete, all things crossed off apart from sending parcel to Duke. Any help would be appreciated

    Can you paste the text of the mission here?

    Usually he assigns you to send the parcel to another player, not to Duke himself.

    And then you just have to search the dump until you get an item, put that in the parcel and send it to said player.

    I got a bit of a weird errand for you to run. I need you to send me a gift. No you didn't miss my birthday, that's next month. Don't forget by the way! No, right now I need you to send a gift to me what I can send someone else. Okay? 

    See, I know important people. And the problem with important people is you gotta pretend you like em by sucking off to them. This bozo is a politician, and so he's into fancy stuff, no soap on a rope for him. He likes fancy stuff from fancy stores, but if I go buying it, it'll look like me and this guy are in bed together, like he's sat under my thumb. I mean he is, but nobody needs to know that. So do it for me.

    I've got to get this together fast, so head out now and get me a Samurai Sword, put it in a box, gift wrap it and give it to me. Then I'll put a pretty card on it and ship it to this clown, the politician will be happy, and next time I want a favor I get it.


    • Obtain a Samurai Sword
    • Place the Samurai Sword in an empty box
    • Giftwrap the parcel
    • Send the giftwrapped Samurai Sword to Duke

    Neat, I've never had that mission or heard anyone reference it before.

    The only thing it looks like you haven't tried is wrapping the box with the third kind of wrapping paper? That is the only other thing I could think of trying if I were you. Although it really sounds like the generic paper is all that the mission calls for based on what Duke says.

    If none of the three types work, then it sounds like a bug report would be in order and Aurel can tell you what you did wrong or fix the mission if it is bugged. Sending an item from your inventory is the only way to get it to Duke.

    I had this but it was to send Kabuki mask.

    There were 2, yes 2 Duke names that populated in the send parcel box.

    But when I looked straight at the imposter's profile, the Duke name reverted to the Player ID number.

    Wrong Duke maybe? Imposter Duke

    Right Duke... Duke

    cheers for replying, I did see that other Duke profile. I sent the birthday present to Duke [4] which is the right one you speak of

    Help! I am sending Duke #4 a Birthday Surprise, a soccer ball, in a box with birthday wrapping paper but nothing happens or I get an error message. I even tried to send him the articles individually but of course that didn't work. I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what it is. I select the box, insert soccer ball and then use Birthday wrapping paper.

    Sounds like a bug in the completion of the mission. File a bug report in the bugs & issues forum.

    Having a similar issue. When I select the empty box, then the item to put inside it, I get "error occurred" each time. Any thoughts or related issues?

    If it happens continuously, even if you get a new box or try another copy of that item, make a bug report.

    Some people above were having issues with errors a bit further along the mission after your step, but you should follow the same procedure they did.

    You're clicking the item name/image instead of entering 1 in the Qty box
