They could've made it an option to have "crafted by" and have the correct name. Or just like that.



*slaps forehead* i just figured sense they got rid of that line, the tried for an eazy fix. should have tired to re-sculpt it first... because that worked. guess i should think before i speak/type. sorry for the misleading info folks.

The ethy horse and llama are the ones that I have seen that still look ethy lol. All the others, ie beetle, kirin, look like normal mounts so far to me.


unicorns and ridgbacks looks like normal mounts as well>:(

does this mean that the KR graphics are active? or what. I think I missed something here.


Only for those who are in beta testing. Right now the rest of us are seeing 2d (new and old) artwork.

1) How about that quest sound? Finally turned on my speakers, and YUCK!!! I could not hit the off button fast enough. Sounds like a finaly fanatasy 1 file!

2) What is the deal with the fortress noone could enter?

3) Had a really HARD time locating anything other than the warrior compound. Oddly enough, there is no fencing trainer, or bushido there.

4) The training area spam was annoying as heck. Areas were so small that you would transition through 4 (you have entered, you have left spam), causing 8 spam instances in seconds.

5) Liked the stables

6) The shield is beautiful. I am particularly appreciatve that the devs had the foresight to NOT make it spell channel.

7) VERY disappointed in the choice of a LONGSWORD for a newbie weapon. HELLLOOOOO, Newbs have LOW dex!?!?!?!

The new player training experience is fun so far. Here's how you organize:

1. If you start with a custom character, be sure that all skills are only 49, so you can accept the noob quests. If you are already at 50 skill when you enter New Haven, you might not be able to get the rewards.

2. Accept all the quests for you template. For a Paladin, for example, accept the quests for Weapon, Tactics, Anatomy, Chivalry, Healing, Magic Resist and Parry. That way you will receive 7 different quest rewards.

3. The noob training area in Old Haven gives blackrock-style gains up to 50 skill level. The mobs there won't aggro on you, so you won't get swarmed by too many at once, the way that you did in the old days with the horde minions.

4. Once all of your skills are at 50 skill level and you have collected your rewards, you'll notice that they are all blessed. Great for moving up to Despise and the Ettins/Earth Elementals, and you won't have to worry about losing your suit!

Very well thought out, IMO.

I stopped in New Haven last night when I created a new character that I was planning to apply an adv token to. I liked the town overall but was annoyed that there's no longer any way to opt out of the New Haven experience and teleport to a regular town. It took me close to an hour to realize that New Haven was attached to old Haven, and that the moongate was still there. Plus, with no dex, I had to walk the whole way - giant pain.

At some point I'll try the new quests, but I didn't want to do it last night!

I always just used "/add" to add someone to a party anyway. So not that big of an issue to me.

People are already bank sitting in New Haven making it a bit laggy-ish. lol

Noticed one of the instructor on Europa was missing, the ninja yago is not in his dojo, cant find him anywhere >:( .

A lot of the building look as if they was put together by a 3 year old, either that or it is KR graphics and the 2d client cant display them right.

I ran a recruitment stall there today. Was a lot of players running around, quite nice. A bit messy though as people started throwing crap all over the place like it was Brit Bank or something.

Is it me, or do the "wilds" around New Haven seem more like a bad Noah's Ark dream? Just running through today, the screen was swamped with every manner of animal. Boars, goats, brown bears, black bears, cougars, panthers, great harts, rabbits, jack rabbits, black bears, llama, timber wolves, bulls, grey wolves, hinds, and even a POLAR BEAR! In addition, just about every bird species was present in great abundance, and they were all interacting very kindly with the boglings, spectral minions, ettins, mongbats, and skeletons.

So, my question is this: Is this intentional, with the latest patch release? Or did the "spawn" go a little haywire?

Might be great for training a tamer, but it's a little annoying otherwise...:-/
