    After doing a bit of research here and there, I found these: First place and "The Best LOL" award: Second place and the "Directionally Challenged" award: Third place and the "Huh!" award Honorable "Friendly Lag" mention: Note: these adds were posted on Village Recruitment Boards on Freedom (PvE) servers; I have no idea if PvP servers have anything similar.

    All loot comes comes in 25, 50,75 and 100 ql versions plus standard chance of rarity. Apart from the blessed seryll rings, the strength of the bonuses are determined by quality, as they take damage, the bonus will go down. THESE ITEMS ARE NOT REPAIRABLE This means that these items do have limited lifespans, and the market should have both a steady incoming supply without drowning it with these items. RINGS Generic blessed seryll ring with empty socket. Does nothing until you attach a gem which can be done by jewelry smiths of enough proficiency. These rings give certain situational bonuses that consume "charges". The first time you put it on it uses 1 charge then every hour another one is used up. Common lasts 50 hours, Rare 75, Supreme 100, Fantastic 150 (i.e. has this many charges).When removed they cause negative effect for 5 minutes depending on which gem is inside. Sapphire: Stamina reduction +5% causes Vulnerability when removed. Emerald: Dodge +5%, Clumsiness when removed Ruby: CR+2, Clumsiness when removed Opal: Spell resist base +5%, Exhaustion when removed Diamond: Healing effect +5%, Vulnerability when removed Star versions have an increased effect. Gem rarity changes the rift item to higher rarity if so. 2. Improves random skill skillgain 3. Prevents swimming damage 4. Ring of stealth. Improves chance of going stealthy 5. Ring of stealth detection. Improves chances of detecting stealthed players BRACELETS: 1. Improves parry bonus for crushing 2. Improves parry bonus for two handed 3. Increases pierce damage 4. Increases polearm damage 5. Increases enchant damage bonus NECKLACES: 1. Increases fighting skill gain 2. Increases improve skill max 3. Reduces hurting time 4. Increases chance to focus 5. Replenishment, reduces food and drink consumption

    Finally got my first ebony black baby. It's been a long and tedious path. Breeding hundreds of horses, killing off hundreds more as not to go above the deed animal head count. And she's finally here. Unfortunately with a bad trait, but I'll sort it out somehow!

    The only creatures that used this new system right now were bears, trolls, seals, and death crawler minions. Sorry, you're on your own for the wildcat

    So as many of you had reported, some creatures seemed to have been given a bit more oomph in their combat ability. Thanks to numerous reports and being able to cross reference things, we discovered the issue and was able to actually disable it on all Freedom servers without a restart. As some had pointed out, creatures on Epic have been a bit more powerful for quite some time. This was due to a new combat system that was rolled out just over a year ago, and was intended on making it's way to the live servers after testing and tweaks. An inadvertent version number bump had caused this system to go live early, making for some creatures to be more difficult, such as trolls. We do apologize for any inconvenience.

    It doesn't matter why they repremmed, it matters if they stay. So lets hope people do stay which returning/new players can also bring back other returning/new players. Prem count in 2-3 more months would be a good indication

    There seems to be a bug with unicorn spawns, as several people have reported not seeing any new unicorns spawning in the wild, and just finding the very rare one left alive from spawns long ago. Even unicorn spawn points seem to give pigs and bison instead of unicorns. More info can be found here http://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/126705-where-are-all-the-unicorns/ Please look into this, we miss our unicorns around. Thanks

    It's pretty obvious to say that we wont push this out if the issues are not rectified. That said, updates, fixes and optimization projects are ongoing and we will hopefully have it ready by the 6th, or failing that, much more stable. We're monitoring all feedback and client bugs reported, so please do continue to use those, as they are the only way we can track issues.

    I wasn't all that broken. Maybe I could give you some tips? All in all, the missing "damage" now is whatever the opponent's armor was to absorb. I also have absolutely nothing to say to people who complain about bug fixes, no matter when they happen. Bugs do not have a statute of limitations. If discovered, and if fixing it makes sense (as this did) then they will be fixed. I appreciate the numbers being posted. Better feedback would be to give some feelings on how this change has affected hunting for you. Noticing it missing from patch notes actually came from me almost dying to a trolling situation on Exodus (go figure!) and I went to check to make sure the LT fix was in, and didn't see it in the notes. When I checked the build, it was certainly in there, and thus here we are. Notified. Since trolls have a fairly decent natural armor, LT does seem to be a little weaker against them than I'd obviously like as a hunter. On the other hand, it just means more squishy creatures will work like cotton (which is what we used to do before anyway). All in all, it means I'm less likely to leave myself idling in the middle of the woods and let my LT huge axe keep me alive. Anywho, I'm almost ready to push the newest WU beta.

    As of now, theres less than a week to go until the 10th birthday of Wurm Online which is supposed to bring the new and highly anticipated new renderer which is already running on the unstable client for several days now. Many people tried it, encountered a lot of issues, and some of them have been solved. But with the time until the current ETA becoming less and less, id like to hear an opinion of those who tried it whether they think it should make its way into the client stable or be delayed further. While most people in my alliance used to run the unstable client before the new renderer, most of them refuse to touch it at all now, and i think this is no pointless refusal for sure. i myself have been running it pretty much every day since the new renderer went live, and i for one strongly suggest to delay it making its way into the stable client for the time being. why? well, random reconnects, mirrored horses, mirrored players, a number of people not being able to even start up the client at all, opening a bigger number of bsbs/crates leads to crashes. i could continue this list for several more points but a quick look at the client bugs section while give a good impression of why i suggest this. while i do enjoy the new light rendering, i think leaving it the way it currently is for an indefinite time is best. the stable client using the old renderer and, for those who dont mind the occasional crash, reconnect and what else might happen, the unstable client offering the new renderer. another point i might see a problem with is news announcing wurms 10th birthday. some people might see it and return, or just want to give it a try. having to bother with problems like not even being able to start up the game at all will probably drive off quite a few of the potential new players. but i still want to hear from other people who used the unstable client. whats your opinion? think the new renderer should go live on the 6th, or be delayed? maybe we could even get a statement from retro about the current plans regarding the full release?

    Personally i havnt been able to load it on anything but minimal settings, it crashes on startup. My PC is far beyond any requirements Wurm would need, i'm normally able to run like 10 clients on max settings but this new renderer slays itself before i get to have a look xD

    Perhaps it would be better to have a 10% drop chance for moonmetal on every kill and when the rift is over, everyone should receive an item (ring, brancelet) etc... I'm not a big fan of these RIfts. I prefer to play in a low fantasy setting rather then this. I would be much happier to see the shoulder parts as craftable items.

    -€ 213.77 EUR I see this today when I log in my paypal. Sold him a deed and bunch of other stuff that he charged me back for months later (today or yesterday) i think. Same guy, here's a screenshot Almost everyone knows that I owned waterdeep on pristine. My location on forums still says "waterdeep" caus i forgot to remove it. I sold that deed plus a bunch of other stuff inside the deed like hota statues and stuff. This is the payment for all that and after some months am charged back by this guy just like everyone else posting on this thread.

    Personally I would very much enjoy Valrei mobs on Xanadu but If I remember right the player base has decided against it. Valrei mobs, notably the Nogumps and Drake Spirits, are good small-group encounters. Since they spawn in small numbers I would see them as welcome addition to the Xanadu wildlife.

    I'm all for making mobs difficult, but I'm all against making them a deadly thread to some character builds and a walk in a park for other character builds. And sadly that's what the "bugged" trolls are. They are still quite easy to defeat for high-strength and highly armoured characters (in plate or better), preferably with a 2-handed LT weapon - while all other character builds have to run, no matter their main fighting or weapon skills. I have FS 80, weapon skill 72, using light armour (plain leather) ql94, a character with low-strength but good body control, using longsword (no LT) and shield. He's not a fast killer of course, he relies on good parry and block rates instead. With the old Freedom trolls I would kill them handily, getting hit only a few times during a fight, all else blocked or parried. Plenty of fights even where I don't get a single wound from a troll fight (here's a combat log of one; http://pastebin.com/xzdhuv9c With the "bugged" version that same character needs to run from trolls. Thus be careful please what you ask for, when we start balancing mobs for the standard power-builds (plate, SotG, 2-handed weapon with LT, high body strength) we might as well remove all other gear and skills from the game. ...

    I doubt 5 minutes could be enough. Correct all that holes and spikes is easy task, problem are that rift decoration objects. I tested them with 50ql large maul and I was able to do 0.03-0.05 damage per 30 second bash. When considering there were more rifts objects than fighters, clearing all rifts objects seems like much longer community event than fight itself. Pity, we can't load that rift decoration onto cart or at last push/pull it ... I could imagine dark themed deeds decorated with them

    The issue here (from what I'm gathering) seems to mostly be with things related to trolls that have been in game a while now: > too much damage to equipment from their (mauling) hits, especially to shields > too difficult to kill with regard to the reward (fighting / weapon skill gain too low; bison are better for fight skill while being much easier to kill) I'd suggest fixing this in the same ways I have before: > decrease damage to equipment and / or buff the benefit given from high repairing skill > buff the fight skill gain given from killing trolls (the previous buff came before their combat abilities were buffed; they are out of balance again) > make the club able to be improved and buff it to be a viable weapon, at least in PvE

    I had fun. It seemed pretty perfect to me. I noticed that some newbies ranked phenomenal & I liked that. They really tried hard, too. But some who actually saved our butts didn't rank as high. I mean, i know my longsword was mostly glancing (I'm starting to train huge axe beginning today), yet my kill number was higher than those who made contact repeatedly (with 2 handers/huge axes). Maybe tweak that a little? But please allow the newbies to rank well for their effort. Not sure what the solution is, but I really liked the rift.

    Yes a project long overdue for completion. Many obstacles slowed that project down. Care and concern was taken to clearly post a sign advising travelers to be careful and stay to the completed side. (but user awareness isn't always prevalent) Most times a ticket wasn't even required i moved and rescued many a wagon and cart myself for people. Patience and a little effort to solve the problem is always better then apparently bothering a GM as seen by ones statement, glad they all aren't like that As always Happy wurming

    This was set back to where it was because we had no intention on rolling it out without warning. Also as I mentioned, only four creatures use the new system at the moment. The intention was to slowly add more.

    Depending on how the system works for loot - because, no point in hiding the fact everyone is selling theirs in the trade chat and farming will be a thing - might be more interesting to shoot arrows at as many mobs as you can, rather than save the "butts" of peeps rushing in and getting 4 or 5 ogres on their back. Pauldrons are mostly for look, but the skill rings / anti shattering potions will have an impact on PvE as well. And the current system is not rewarding at all, at least not with those amounts of players. The first live one or the test server ones were better for that. That, exactly that. We are heading toward another system that is worse than the unique ones atm. Rushing head in with no strategy, slay everything and win (or not) something out of it is not really an event. Enki spawning 20 champ spiders on you at an impalong do a better job than the last rift (and there, you know you won't have reward, just fun).

    I would like to make a slight deviation here, but I was on chaos when the Valrie mobs were added. You would get a shot of lightning, and suddenly get hit with about 5 drakespirits or eaglespirits. Those things were, and still are a bastard to single kill. My point is rifts need to be tougher, bring the community together, and distribute the wares evenly, not just to the top -end players.

    Some time ago, maybe 2 years or less (icr) unis where like a damn plague in all servers, I remember at some places in Celebration there was only unicorns spawning and you could go fro miles and rarely see other creature types, then after great public complains, they decided to nerf the crap of the spawn rate I think, so now we have every other creature, but unis are extremely rare. Maybe they need to touch the rate again, put it somewhere in the middle, so they don't become a plague again but spawn more frequently?
