  1. I give up trying to understand what is going on anymore...... I have new babies being born using only 20 traits out of my 65.... Now I'm seeing more of this...NO misc traits on either parents...and the baby is born with 4 misc traits. The fact that we have to wait 5-11 days to get these kinds of results without being able to influence the results in any way is just crazy. A complete waste of time. I can see how some people who only breed a handful of animals would be very frustrated with these kinds of results, it would take MONTHS to get any kind of usable animals on top of the months of skill grinding.
  2. From my experience with the new changes, so far there is not really a way to breed for certain single traits, just the sub category of desired traits...Combat, Draft and Speed. I have not seen there being a way like there used to be to single out the separate traits in each of the new categories. Thus granger may be best used to display what traits there are, and then just match animals from the desired category. Matching draft with draft and speed with speed and not even need to break it down any further then that. From what I've seen so far in my experience and the experiences of others posting, it is random which of the traits you will end up with in a category, there is no way to single out which one you want. With the old system, if I wanted Lighting on a horse, I could breed horses with that trait and have a greater chance of it passing down, now it just seems that the category is what is the greater chance of passing down, with which parent that being picked from being random (from what has been stated via the devs so far) and the traits within that category also being random, with hopes that you have enough AH skill to get all the traits of that category and not any thing else that is not desired. As others have said, thank you for the work you put into this. I know I can say that your time is greatly appreciated and I look forward to what you end up with! Happy Wurming
  3. Prices on NFI have been in the 4-5s/1k range for marble, slate and pottery now for over 8 months. I see people seeking to buy them all the time. I think Kellen is a little low on his price for reg stone bricks, those still seem to be going for 2s/1k and are advertised alot as well. Mortar has settled into the 4s/1k price and has been steady at this price for over 8 months as well.
  4. Welcome to Wurm, I'm glad you have found your own place to fit in! I do agree with you 100% that if social media was used more that I think the game could grow...or at least retain some players. A dead or inactive social media means a dead or inactive game/community to many people. I know lots of people who won't try a game if the socials are not some what active, there are so many other games to play that it is easy to just skip over a game if they notice that there is not much going on at all. Its not rocket science, its just basic business...use the resources that you have to promote your product.....the Wurm team seems to be lacking in this regard. Happy Wurming!
  5. So many missed chances to interact with the community. To show appreciation to the paying customers. Nothing had to be given away or designed or done outside of the team saying a simple Happy Anniversary. Not even a post. This would have been a great Valrei International...just a simple something. At this point the all around silence speaks more to a paying customer base then anything they could ever say at this point. The lack of interest, lack of passion, lack of concern that appears to be from all members of the team is sad. If they show no appreciation for the community, why should anyone else care, why should anyone continue to pay and give their hard earned cash to a company that treats their customer base this way.....I guess as it is said, a fool and his money is soon parted.
  6. Everyone else is bidding, I should too! 7s
  7. [18:49:26] The items silently disappear from the spirit castle. You expect them to arrive in less than ten minutes. Thanks again everyone. Lock please!
  8. I may not be online at the end of the auction, so good luck to everyone bidding and thank you to everyone who has bid thus far! Keep in mind there is 1 hour sniper protection, thanks to Pantha for the clear description of how this works! Sniper protection: Sniper protection will extend the auction by a set time after the last bid. For example, if there are 2 minutes left in the auction, with a 1-hour sniper protection, and someone places a new high bid, the auction is extended by 1 hour. If another bid comes in after that, the auction is extended again by 1 hour from the time of the bid, and so on, until there are no more bids within an hour of the last one. Happy Wurming Everyone!
