  1. Tutorial Quest bug

    I brought my alt to tutorial and was awarded some magic (1200 w/god) and manufacturing (1000) experience. I clicked on "What's my current task". 1) Who are you? 2) Tutorials 3) Heal me 4) What's my current task? 5) Bye Response: You shouldn't be here.... I did notice that tutorial is listed in Quest List but no steps are listed even step I just completed.
  2. The child of stars perk is partly why I stopped harvesting except for food in field on maps with no bones and blue berries on IotF.
  3. boar token

    I like the idea of a boar token being used to finish boar quest. Last thing we need is a token which is basically useless and this would be valuable enough for some to buy not not so valuable it would be farmed by alts.
  4. Adding 2 new special days.

    What is next be fair to harvesters and rangers and let them worship their gods?
  5. Testing client ported to SDL2

    Sound alerts not working. I use sounds a lot for I have vision issues and I often have my client under another window and it allows players to send me a sound alert when they want to trade. I use Windows 7. I installed Windows 64 bit client in subdirectory and copied the binary EL and the DL files to game run directory. Checked and sound warnings file is in usual place. Checked and sound works fine and all settings set to max. Tried manually triggering sound alert and does not work, something I do often. No idea what else to check. Update: I copied the original saved files back to game run directory and now I still have an issue. No idea why. It is Windows so will try reboot.
  6. For an item dropped by 14 creatures it is amazingly uncommon. I think a good number of them are used for players with 60+ manufacturing reading books getting higher level Darithia items. A halberd is my most common item which requires rare ingredients as well almost double more than iron plate which is my next item which is why I agree they are not "hardly used". Nobody makes lesser magic swords anymore and lesser magic swords are now entering game via random item thing. Only use these days appear to be for bots. I bought one for a serpent stone. They are still being used in halberds (a favorite weapon), spear (preferred by some for some monsters), titanium axe (quest), titanium serpent stone (a favorite weapon of characters without high human nexus and have a few requests for crafting Red Dragon Helm of Life and Mana. Nobody is silly enough to use on enhanced iron armor anymore which is the expensive versions of augmented leather armor which breaks easier than unenhanced armor. Now for bars radioactive weapons require Dvarium Bars which requires serpent stones so quite a number get used there.
  7. new rare manu items

    I agree good idea.
  8. Well the change has been made as of December 21. Invasionmeter manufacture formula now produces 10 I wonder if break rate changed. I used to be someone who would help clear maps using them and then I ran into a string of uses where I got 1-3 uses out of them and I stopped. Combining that with occasional critical failure it became too expensive to do this as service to game.
  9. Agree completely on removal of serpent stones. Maybe substitute EEEs. In general NPCs have made some items non-mixable except for quests. I actually did my quests on no books day so I did not waste gold coins making tin/copper/bronze bars since NPC sells cheaper than to make including bronze armor.
  10. Potion of Perception

    A night visor removes armor and if you are hunting you want you want armor. This would allow both.
  11. Could the clearing remove only the GIWS monsters?
  12. It could be a real pain for harvesters doing dailies in TD and Thel. There is no skip on those so someone could be stuck for a while unable to do daily which as usual does not bother some players.
  13. One added one could be the Lenny one people have asked for. Lenny's family is in area and they are on various C2 maps. Since they will not have raised up, stored diss rings/pots like main Lenny drops will be lower. I also think that GIWS invasions should occur even if other invasions occurring. What is the worst that could happen - Red/Black dragon on map with invader fighters?
  14. Christmas contest! :)

    Will be traveling on most of 20th and 21th and not be on much unless places we stop have open wifi. Have fun.
  15. Instance mode adjustment

    Or what might work without major changes is ability to save several types of settings and switch between them like we do for mixing and pick lists (hopefully without the random failure like pick lists).
