    The comment comes from here, if we are adjusting based on effort then it took zero effort for you to buy your account so of course you wouldn't care if your epic skills took a hit they mean nothing to you since you didn't grind them nor do you play there. You then go on to discuss monetary value because that is what matters to you when a great deal of us couldn't care less about economy and the value of things other than our enjoyment playing a game not running a business. It stings when people who have played low level epic and saw the increased gains in the beginning stages sit back and say well its too easy there to merge them with us, its worse when someone who has played for 4 months without experiencing high level grinding on either cluster begins to claim the same. Yes there is no denying that epic has x2 skill gain and it moves faster.... to begin with, it also has a curve that makes grinding in your sweet spot increasingly hard to reach for improving type skills as you start to get higher up. Creation skills become way too easy to perform meaning that getting the lower ql products for your skill ticks becomes impossible in many cases. At 70 skill you perform as if you have 90+, at 90 you are 99 so not only are you pushing harder but the difficulty is not in your favour it goes from easy mode to masochist. When I began playing epic it felt like cheating and I wasn't impressed with anything that I accomplished having come from freedom, after I got past easy mode it felt more on par until I hit the 'you're an idiot' phase. I began to notice it first with locksmithing (yes I did this on freedom just for my priest) and then with baking... baking was the wtf moment when I realised that at 50 skill on freedom there was no problem using regular water but on epic I was forced to use 0.01ql water to be able to gain skill at all. People say that meditating is worse on epic but I have no experience to compare it to I refused to on freedom and even on epic for the first 2 years. In a discussion comparing HFC the conclusion was that it took the same amount of meals to reach 100 skill on both clusters. This isn't even touching on the differences between clusters in terms of stamina. If I look at my freedom account and compare it to my epic account my freedom account stats (overall not just stam) crap all over my epic toon when you consider the time differences in play. I cant give you formulas and nerd rambling I can only tell you that the difficulty on epic does a backflip in the higher levels. I personally have been shaping my account for 5.5 years, I did not buy it and I do care about people flippantly saying hey just nerf them without understanding or experiencing it.

    These items are by a HUGE margin the most diffficult form of paving to create and for the life of me i can't understand why. Gravel - rock shard Cobbles - 1 brick from 1 shard Slabs - 1 slab from a few shards Marble slabs - Same as above Slate slabs - Make a buttload of ash, use this ash and Nat subs skill to make lye. Now you need mortar which you've prepped from clay and sand, which must be combined using nat subs to create concrete. You need 5 of these for one slab. But this is not all you need because you also need to mine out some slate and produce TWENTY shingles. With all this done you may now make an unfinished slate slab and attach all pieces to complete a ONE tile worth. Oh and you need 2 of these things for a house floor. Seems utterly ridiculous in comparison to other paving

    Nowe Wszczniesz by Warlander Top of the morning to ye Wurmians! It's another Valrei International, keeping you up to date with everything going on in your world, so let's get to it! In light of some discussions this week, I'd like to go over a few things we're working on, while the PvP roadmap coming later will have a bit more info on some things. PvP updates There's a lot in the works with PvP related overhauls, including the Valrei system as well as priests and spells. These projects are currently under the way as we speak, but these are not simple tasks. Many factors include identifying how the system is supposed to work, what does and doesn't work with the current system, what we want the system to be and how we want it to work and how prospective changes would fit in with the rest of the game. Once we have a firm plan ironed out, we'll then begin involving you all in feedback and testing, seeing what needs to be tweaked and adjusted, as well as looking at the overall feel of it and how it meshes in. We completely understand that this is frustrating when you're waiting for it, but it does take time, we'll be seeing a few minor things going out to tone down the effects of valrei (Such as removing terraforming events next update) as well as reducing stun timers from nogumps and other creatures (last update). There's a lot to go through and we'll continue to work on it, as well as work to make sure that you all are kept up to date with what's going on. We're committed to improving PvP, and we'll be providing a bit more PvP oriented road map soon, with Budda breaking out his thesaurus to work on his first devblog! I don't know when that will land, but stay tuned! Conversions So many of you might have seen the thread about HotS conversions to player gods where we agreed that it was a less than ideal system. The task we face now is rewriting the outdated conversion system with one that performs better, and makes a bit more sense. This system will allow HotS players to follow player gods, I'm not sure whether it will be BL only player gods or include WL ones, and more info will be given prior to release, but I wanted to share with you all that the current system will be changed fairly soon, being on test within the next two weeks or so. Unstable is a bit more stable! Good news everyone! We've managed to identify and resolve the disconnect issue with the unstable client! This opens the door for us to address the other issues that arise with the new client, and begin the final bug fixing prior to it becoming the stable client. So please do test it out and play on it and provide all feedback on performance and crashing issues you encounter. If you don't test it now when it's unstable you might encounter an issue when it goes live, and that means trouble! One important thing to remember is there are several new settings in the new client, including shadow map size, and dynamic lighting. Both of these improve the look and feel of the game greatly, but do also impact performance if you run on the lower end, so I'd advise starting with a new configuration, and tweaking it as it goes. Grab the unstable client and give it a go here: http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient_unstable.jnlp Xanadu Improvements We've isolated a few issues causing Xanadu's lag, and some may have noticed that things occur a little faster on Xanadu than they used to (coal piles burning!) We've got some other things in the works to address them, and hopefully they improve performance as well! Community Content And Milosanx returns with a new video from wu! It's always great to see videos from him, and it's a good overview of the new Otherlands server, which opened with the release of 1.3, so check it out! Vortac and Weem have also been hard at work with their Follywood series, which I have enjoyed greatly (and pestered several people with links to) So make sure you check those out as well! That's it from me this week, so have a good weekend everyone, and as always, keep on Wurming! Retrograde & the Wurm team.

    1. Player stands on the mine tile and activate the tool (could be new tool or just dioptra) 2. He can right click tile floor or ceiling and click MEASURE 3. He gets a messages: XX corner is lowest one (where XX could be NE/NW/SE/SW) XX corner is X slopes higher then the lowest one (where XX could be NE/NW/SE/SW and X will be number of slopes) XX corner is X slopes higher then the lowest one (where XX could be NE/NW/SE/SW and X will be number of slopes) XX corner is X slopes higher then the lowest one (where XX could be NE/NW/SE/SW and X will be number of slopes) example: NE corner is lowest one NW corner is 10 slopes higher then the lowest one SE corner is 15 slopes higher then the lowest one SW corner is 5 slopes higher then the lowest one for some corners on the same level: NE corner is lowest one NW corner is lowest one SE corner is 15 slopes higher then the lowest one SW corner is 5 slopes higher then the lowest one

    Our beloved Rageed has gone missing! Last seen in the vicinity of Alora near S-12/13. Rageed is a very important member of our village that has special needs and needs to be constantly brushed and reassured. Please help us find our horse! Ayuna is spending countless nights in suffering due to the separation which has lead to fatal wounds and continued quick shortcuts down the mountain. The terrible expedition has her scarred for life! Please assist Ayuna in recovering her horsie!

    And let this be a warning to others trying to do business with this person. Posted here that he wants a taste kit, main post is pretty clear about it. Edited the first post after that, making up his own rules of the trade. How about we tell you how this is done and then you will buy the product from us, not make your own, not sell the system. Get a grip.

    Should be able to. She says she can. It's a bit weird because she left the village when she formed her own but she continued to care for it. She says she can zero in. We suspect it's at the peak of a mountain but we are going to go around it and see. Ayuna has already died at least twice trying to find Rageed. She felt down the cliff this last time so I decided to make a humor post about it because it's made my day. People like Ayuna put a smile on our faces. Her persistence is incredible

    This is not what you are asking for, but I can't resist whenever the topic comes up for "indoor trees," However you want more of a visual change in decaying houses to suggest woods are reclaiming it. But i am not sure having trees poke through the roofs of decaying houses will add that much visual enjoyment... maybe rats scurrying about and spawning in houses w / broken walls... so that locals will decide its time to raze the place down entirely with a catapult.

    I'm bumping up an old thread because I want to call someone specific out for an amazing deed. Most have heard that the MR forums were hacked, and subsequently someone got onto my account, stole everything of value and sold it so quickly that nothing could be done to recover it. Enki found my most prized lost possession, my black drake armor, had been sold to someone (who had NO idea it was stolen). this person contacted me and after verifying it was my lost set, SENT IT BACK TO ME. I couldn't afford to pay him what he spent but he didn't ask for anything. So, salute to my new hero, Smokesthebear (Snorlax on the forums). If you see him around Exodus, make sure to salute. Also, if any of you purchased on November 26th a smc, supreme hatchet (maker - charabis), a rare hatchet with a very good imbue, an addy helm or glitter axe, enjoy the spoils of my losses and hope you get many years of good use out of them!

    Always found it odd that blue dye is so insane to get made. red - cochinaels are easy to come by and everyone skills butchering green - just mine it, easy white - just mine it, easy black - we can harvest acorns now but....blue - You have to scramble around botanising for ages, rarely getting woad, getting lots of random other junk and the chance its good QL is reaallllly slim. Couldn't we allow Woad to be put in planters and use similar code to herbs? Edit for important information - You can no longer botanise high QL woad without the skill. It is literally capped with your skill since 1.3. If you ever want to be able to make 90QL blue dye you need to find a person with 90+ botanising. Does anyone in the whole game have that!? Feb 9th Edit - Today the devs decided that Forestry, Milking and Botanising being actually slightly reasonable to grind for the first time in 10 years needed nerfing, so now it's even harder to get woad.

    A shout-out to Yldrania for giving back so much to the community. Her selfless work for others shows the spirit of kindness is not gone from our world. Goldfever - For going above and beyond what your responsibility as a seller should be. I have not forgotten your kindness. Vernex - For saving my ass when that shark nearly tore my head off. You swam into the water and healed me at 3% health. I should have died then and there. Wargasm - Even before you knew me you gave me more than I could expect from a stranger. Your friendship has been a corner Stone in my EVE career. Thank you for your wisdom. Icerns - For letting me learn to fight with you and showing me that even enemies can have honor. See you on the battlefield. Stik - for putting up with me and being a formidable mentor. And last but not least, GM Astarte, for being there when I have needed you and providing such excellent customer support. You have gone above and beyond what your position requires. Thank you for the good times and your devotion to the game.

    literally the only benefit I have if that happens is being able to finally sell all my trash that I don't want anymore for dirt cheap to help ruin the market that ruins so many potentially great qol/balance changes, otherwise if i wanted to play chaos/freedom id already be there with the account that already has skills there. if i was able to move gary's skills 100% over, and combine mrgary's highest freedom/epic skills together, i'd still prefer to stay on epic tbh i have hope that epic/chaos pop can both rise again like they both have many times before. false hope? maybe, but its there. the game as a whole has to grow with it's population regardless, so yeah

    I'd like to ask you to please avoid making this idea about server crossing and to keep that to separate threads meant for that. This idea is solely for a safe version to transport animals, server crossing is not part of my suggestion. Of course it would be fairly neat in some ways to have it, but I would like to ask you to keep that seperate from the animal transport. I do not want the suggestions linked because I believe that there hopefully will be animal transport boxes some time, but I do not believe that animals crossing servers will be in the focus of any of the development any time soon. Bottom line: Let's keep this idea a possibility for the future by refraining from combining it with server crossing. Thank you!

    Could we have a merchant that could store and sell items out of a BSB or FSB? (not a separate box from the merchant, but one in the merchant so to speak) If you merged the back end of a Bulk storage Bin to a merchant interface and let people set a per unit price, it would radically change the markets. edit: To clarify my point is that the merchant would literally behave like a BSB or FSB. It could only take items that would fit in such containers, and would be limited by maybe 300 total items or what a BSB or FSB could hold. This means when you give the merchant 100 tomato with a set price 5i. Then giving him another 100 tomato would simply make the total 200 tomato each selling at 5i per. This is to simplify as much coding as possible. Additionally, I think that these bulk merchants should also be able to be set up with a "purchase order" option. So that they can offer to buy for example "100 small nails, min quality 30" and would pay people for these items with coin given by the player. These two functions incorporated into a merchant NPC would radically change the market, and allow a lot more flexibility and community involvement.
