lots of small, but good, changes!

I think changing the way free trial accounts accounts are handled, mostly to prevent abuse/misuse, will open the door for more marketing and hopefully more new players.

Yeah, the trial account changes match what's becoming the industry standard for mmos. WoW, WAR, and Lotro all have similar restrictions.

They need more work on the new player quests/experience then

The current ones don't really give people a taste for what "life is like" after they leave Haven.

Very true. I think the new player experience was much better before Haven got nuked.

This is an entirely pointless change. I seriously doubt books are used for cheats :huh I wish they would spend their time fixing real issues.

Its hard enough to run a library as it is with the permissions changes to containers last year. Now I have to reset permissions on an entire case of books if I need to change one out. Same goes for runebooks.. *sigh*

ActuallY i can understand this one. I've had problems with locked down books in my auction house with list of items I'd change each week being overwritten by childish individuals.

I just wish you could 'lock' books so that only the author could change them.

Though I have written silliness in some of the books lying around in luna.

the syndicate guild on atlantic guild keeps leaving books around on cats trying to get people to transfer there, So I write in em. Usually extolling the virtues and greatness of pie.

Not sure why this change was made either, isn't that what red leaves are for?

As for those books littering the ground, I help keep my shard clean and deposit them in the nearest trash barrel.

Red leaves stop all further editing - I mean something like setting security on it in your house so only owners/co-owners/friends can edit it, etc.

So say you're having an auction in a week. Prospective sellers can list their wares in a book, but they must be friended to your house first. Thus the book could be viewable, but not sabotaged.

Exactly. For me, I have the rules of the auction then the list. Each week I just edit the book and re-lock it down. But people like to edit the lists...heh.

What about Bulletin Boards? Or a messageboard online like this?

Not everyone visits the forums. I know. I used to post my auction list on both Stratics, here and my web site. and people still would prefer something they could look at in game. I used to print books, but when there were additions, people would get pissy because they weren't listed...yadda yadda.

I note that restoration of the utility of Bags of Sending is not on the list; only prohibition on their use by trial accounts.

Change your mind or forget to put the change in the Notes?

-Galen's player

PS: Should have read deeper in the thread; others already noted this. Sorry for the redundancy!



Hmm, missed the notes! (Same with BODs being restricted, that's in there too)

There's actually more stuff coming. This is the first push to TC1 - I'd consider this list more of a "working list."

As far as I know though, the BoS changes are live on TC1. Someone want to give it a whirl?

From the Champ Spawn Pub 58 Fixes and Q&A thread, this question was asked by a player and answered by Regine_EAMythic:

(...)

The bug which allowed players who didn’t work the current spawn to receive the replica has been fixed and will be in Pub 58.


Has this been addressed in this publish as stated or am I just missing it in the notes?



Yes, all the of the issues addressed in the Champ Spawn Q&A post will be live in Pub 58. There has however been a slight modifiction since that post was made. The range for Protection has been increased from 90 tiles to 200 tiles.

So if i read the thread correctly, players worked the spawn has a chance to get replicas while only players on top attacker list against the champ can get scrolls. Would you be so kind to confirm?

~~~~

Correct.

You do not need to attack the champ to get the Replica, as long as you worked a sufficient portion of the current spawn. But you need to have done sufficient damage to the Boss to get a chance at the powerscrolls. In both cases, you need to still be on the subserver to receive anything.
