Items with unique examine strings

I was looking through WU code looking for some stuff, when i noticed this section...

 

        else if (this.id == 636451406482434L) {
            toReturn = "A simple but beautiful shirt made from the finest threads of cloth. It's as black as night, except the yellow emblem which contains the symbol of a bat.";
        }
        else if (this.id == 1810562858091778L) {
            toReturn = "A long and slender pen. This pen is mightier than a sword.";
        }
        else if (this.id == 357896990754562L) {
            toReturn = "A relic of the days of old, with a tear of Libila stained on the blade.";
        }
        else if (this.id == 156637289513474L) {
            toReturn = "An exquisite wave pattern glimmers down the blade of this famous katana.";
        }
        else if (this.id == 2207297627489538L) {
            toReturn = "A well-worn shovel that trumps them all.";
        }
        else if (this.id == 3343742719231234L) {
            toReturn = "For some reason, your feel tears come to your eyes as you look upon it. Or is it blood?";
        }

 

Those are some hardcoded item IDs with a unique examine string.

 

Anyone know what those are and what the stories behind them?

 

I think the katana one belonged to @Xsamuraizxat some point, though i don't know why. Tried to searching for the other but haven't found out anything.

 

Added: The IDs aren't just random longs, they have the type encoded in the lowest 8 bits (it's the same for all of them - 2, which means those are items) and server id in the 16 bits following that (It's 12 for the shirt, 7 for the relic, 2 for the katana and 5 for the rest - though i don't know what server each number maps to in WO)

Judging by the code above - exactly one, since those IDs are unique.

2207297627489538L

That one is my steel shovel, and has a unique name of "Ace of Spades"

 

Rolf gave team members a chance, some time ago, on having a unique name and description given to one of the items.

 

I cannot remember all of those, or who asked for them.

Afaik those don't have unique descriptions. Granted its been ages since I saw either.

They probably are items renamed by an Arch GM for an event or for a member of staff as a reward for their hard work. Those don't need hard-coded descriptions like the ones described by bdew

Hmm... Looking at this, I would love to have a hammer called 'Deed planner' or something similar... Maybe for DP 4th anniversary? :D

Would be nice if anyone could name something instead of staff members, not sure this makes sense to me.

Well we can name some rare/sup/fantastic items before finishing them if that counts.
