Yes! We had a bit of extra space since we rearranged the schedule for this publish, so we've tweaked the spawn rate for Priests of Mondain in Felucca upwards - specifically, they should spawn more often around moongates.
"Why did I get a suspension for having a link to a website in my profile?"
First, the relevent bit from the Rules of Conduct:
"With the exception of the sale of in-game items for in-game items or services, you may not market, promote or advertise anything, or make any other form of solicitation (including pyramid schemes and chain letters) through the Ultima Online service or Ultima Online web site."
Thieves' Guild Bug Update
While we still haven't actually reproduced the bug, we found a bit of related code that definitely wasn't supposed to be there and we're reverting it out in Publish 56 - for everyone having trouble joining the guild, we eagerly await your reports once this publish goes live.
QA Request of the Week
QA has seen some complaints that plants don't always behave as intended - sometimes they lose health or die suddenly even when they're being properly taken care of - and they would love to see some detailed reports from people who've experienced the problem. Please include things like what the expected result was, what the actual result was, what kind of seed was used, whether fertile dirt was used, and as many other details as could possibly be relevant. Thanks!
What's To Come:
We're finalizing all the goodness for next week's Town Hall, and working hard at getting Publish 56 to you shortly thereafter. If you're remotely in range of Seattle, I strongly advise you to show up!
Town Hall News:
If you make one Town Hall this year, make this one! Check out the details here and please do RSVP.
