  1. deleted

    Deleted cause I figured out that the mission was completed while I was trying to complete it. I assume that's the reason for the trouble I had. Can be deleted.
  2. BL still needs a way to do genesis. Horses (fast horses) are extremely important. Horses are almost always the first thing to die in battle. So a horse born with 1. It has malformed hind legs, 2. The legs are of different length or 3. It has some illness are destroyed immediately. WL has among it's many combined spells Genesis which removes bad traits making a horse that would be destroyed upon birth by BL, instantly perfectly good for WL. If horses are so important to battle one would think that the Battle Goddess would enable her warriors with a way to have war horses.
  3. From the source linked I see 4 Source Totems and 3 Charming Spirits. Source Totems aren't required mission items. Source Totem enters Scary Old Trees Source Totem enters Loft Despair Source Totem enters Rusty Daggers Source Totem enters Brittlerock Mountains Charming Spirit enters Bloodsucker March Charming Spirit enters Nogump The Dirty Charming Spirit enters Mount Creation
  4. Current scenario lists a total of 3 items available for completion of the scenario in the twitter feed for the scenario. Valrie map shows a total of four items with two of the items on the NoGump the Dirty tile. Twitter feed lists only 1 item for the NoGump the Dirty tile. Libila gathered one Charming Spirit and returned to her home tile which meets the win requirement for the 3 items listed in the twitter feed but wasn't awarded the win. Graphical display & win conditions are different than what is defined in the twitter report.
  5. Does this apply to NEVER PREMIUM accounts only? Or, to any account that stops paying premium? Bluntly, will non-premium storage alts, who had been premium at one time, be deleted after 90 days of non-premium status?
  6. So I had a Nahjo, who is now a Mag (which I didn't want) but he is cool with being in HOTS on Epic. I also had a Lib and Tosiek Priest. My Lib and Tosiek Priests are now both libs and can't be transferred to any WL gods. If I transfer my Nahjo, I can only transfer it to Lib. So now I have 3 Lib priests. Two of which have completed the Benediction section of the journal. I can't transfer them to Freedom. So what you have done has taken several years worth of subscriptions, leveling and effort and turned them into totally worthless appendages. I argued against player gods years ago but you said they are here to stay, and now they aren't. I was good with the player gods being removed and transfer of the two accounts to WL gods even if that meant they had to stay in a cave in the forest. Sadly, I am not surprised by the way this has gone. In all fairness to players who have taken you at your word over the years that we should just suck up the fact that there are player gods and they are going to stay. Then oops we have decided we were wrong, now we are going to remove player gods, but you can transfer to a god of your choice, of course what you didn't mention is that for BL your only choice is Libila. Many players converted from the old gods to player gods to move in from out of the woods. You should suck it up and clean up your mess properly, convert player gods to the god of the player choice, if that means giving that character a kingdom transfer you should do that as well. Yes, unfortunately this would likely mean having to have players submit support tickets and having GMs make the change which will mean a lot of work. But it is the only fair thing to do, rather than just saying we know this sucks but it is what we are doing, which is what has been said to date.
  7. You will need to get people to come from Freedom due to the fact that the borders are closed to sailing from one epic server to another. On Affliction we have similar problems with not enough players to kill uniques. People coming from Freedom won't be able to take anything back with them except experience and journal goals if that is one of their journal goals. Good Luck, I hope you find some help.
  8. Just a reminder that you can tame a horse with foraged items. Horses aren't hard to tame even for new players. Once tamed you can right click the horse and select ride, no rope needed. Now tamed animals are subject to being attacked, so once on the horse you can untame the horse by using the animal management screen obtained by right clicking on the character screen. Or, even a quality 1 bridal will allow you to activate anything in inventory and ride the horse without taming it. With that said, I agree that it is time to either open the borders again or reset Ele again with open borders this time, which I think was the original plan. But sadly I expect that Epic is so far down on their list of concerns it is going to stay the way it is for some time.
  9. The Essence Drain page lists (in error I believe) AOSP and Web Armor has being able to be cast on a weapon with Essence Drain Enchantment. These two enchants are armor enchants and are not eligible to be cast on weapons and therefore should be deleted from: This spell will stack with Aura of shared pain, Blessings of the dark, Circle of cunning, Demise spells, Mind stealer, Nimbleness, Web armour, and Wind of ages. The page is located at Respectfully
  10. On Jackal, my templars are stuck in the mine. One is stuck inside a Marble Vein. They are not responding to Aggressive Creature alarms, it has been this way since the last reboot. I made sure that the aggressive creature box was not checked to prevent them from responding. I submitted a support ticket #160045. I did not have a mine door on the mine when this started, but do now. They would have been helpful when I had a Champ Rift Beast visited me. Grumpysmith
  11. I have long argued against player gods and haven't changed my position on it even having two PGs preists plus her awesomeness Libila's priest. So +1
  12. RT exchanges 10% of damage for "The hope that the wound isn't healed" and that the wound will kill the player after 2 or 3 server ticks. Server ticks are every 10 minutes for wounds, so hopefully someone is so incompetent that they can't make a healing cover or find a priest to heal them in 20 or 30 minutes. To make RT even close to the equivalent of FA/FB the tick rate needs to be reduced to every minute or two. In order that the wound can hope to out pace the ability of WL priests to cast LOF, cure light, cure medium etc. Alternatively, RT wounds could be imune to priest cast heals and require healing by covers only. Possibly the heal cast immunity could be tied to wound severity similarly to the way Farmer's Salve works on bruises. I ask Has anyone ever died from an RT wound server tick? I highly doubt it. If no one has, then the RT "HOPE" is an empty promise with no value.
  13. I would have been happier with a complete wipe of skills, tomes, meditation and faith, so yes I say get rid of these unbalanced abilities. I lost SOTG because it was deemed as too overpowering, without any recompense (unless the fall damage is it) on two toons. I'm not real sure, all I know is I no longer have a SOTG icon. And, I won't be able to get a new mediation ability until close to the planned Re-restart of Ele so no real reason to head down that path again. Knowledge of the game mechanics already put long term players ahead of new players.
  14. According to Wiki, you can use an axe, carving knife, saw. I've used a hatchet to make kindling as well.
  15. I feel your pain. I have a Nahjo priest. So the only way I've been able to do rat on a stick is to find two branchs. Make kindling from one and use the other for a skewer. Real life example would be a cotton ball and petroleum jelly or some other flamable greasy substance. In wurm we can make a candle from a string and fat. So why not a cotton and a fat to make kindling?
  16. So what your saying is: that when I started playing this game many years ago, and was killed by a noob griefer within 20 minutes of starting the game, I should have been banned from playing? This was before the ability of noobs to even keep their gear on death, it was stolen and disposed of somewhere. How is that supposed to help the game add players? I was attacked by a Noob Griefer carrying a Troll Club at the starter town - by definition that is PvP I wandered off into the wilderness and survived by searching the wiki, learning about crude tools and making them. I got lucky and found a fire starter. The rest is history. Sorry but this is a really, really bad idea.
  17. I'm old - Zork - Text based game. Harpoon - Medal of Honor Series Pirates of the Burning Seas - Been going 11yrs, most fun pvp I've ever had in a game. New developers, hopefully a return to her glory days. Eve Patrician Series Risk - I know its a board game, beer and chili with friends. Bridge - I miss the face to face game play.
  18. A new question that I haven't seen asked before: How will becoming a priest actually work now? In the old days when religions were fighting it made sense to only allow WL priests to become priests at the WL altar and the same for BL priests at the BL altar. Now that kingdoms are at war (rather than religions) and priests are no longer tied to the associated kingdoms and can be part of any kingdom without fear of the guards, will all priests be available from the WL and BL altars? Possibly only the PG demi-gods with the template gods tied to the template altars? Will we be able to use existing priests to make new priests like currently on Freedom? On Epic its not really a problem due to population at the current time, but hopefully in the future there will be a higher population.
  19. Spirits can be killed with bows as long as the arrows are enchanted. Have tower guards engage and fire away from a safe distance. Generally used Rotting Touch to enchant the arrows, good channeling. Now it has been a long time since I've killed them with arrows, but I don't think it has changed.
  20. @RetrogradeWhile I'm sure your plate is already full, I believe that it is in everyone's best interest if you were to redo your original post with all the things that have been changed. There have been many, many changes listed in these 18 pages. Unless someone is keeping detailed notes it is, as Rhianna said, "hard to keep up with". Whether it is better to just edit the original post, with a notation that it deals with the first 18 pages of comments, or start a new thread I don't know.
  21. @MalenaI closed the thread and then reopened it, as I would have been remiss in not complementing you on the new horse skins. Very nice work ?
  22. @Sindusk Thank you for your long post, and I'm sorry for your recent troubles. My sincerest wish for your full recovery in all respects. My Monday morning issue would be the need for some attention to the Truehit/Nimble issue regarding BL. Accuracy is an important issue and I didn't notice it in your most recent post regarding the work you've recently completed or in your upcoming work effort. As others have said, the real test for balance will be when these new and/or reworked spells are actually used on live servers. The times I've been on the test server I've been there alone and it is difficult test group impacts alone. Would it be possible or even advisable to hold a event on test or challenge with just cosmetic rewards prior to going live? I will keep my Lib priest, but I'll have to decide what to do with my two Tosiek priests. My main Tosiek is currently my Mission Runner/Healer with reveal creatures, goat shape, refreash and Light of Fo - changes to the pendulum range may force me to review that one. Not sure what to do with my battery Tosiek.
  23. I'm in agreement with those that say it really doesn't matter if a name changes or not. You never know for sure who you are talking with. Even if it is a name you recognize, there is absolutely no way to know if it is the same person you have dealt with before without playing 20 questions. I have a couple of toons that were made for a spur of the moment need and then ended up lasting to long with too many skills to throw away. So wouldn't mind changing their names, but probably wouldn't anyway. As far as changing appearances, I simply don't understand the issue. I assume it is some kind of coding issue, but other than that I can't fathom a reason not to allow it. Of course on Epic we all pretty much run around with armor on all the time so nobody sees what we look like anyway. Perpetual case of helmet head.
