  1. I got diseased a couple days ago, while riding a horse and targeting/killing two sheeps on same tile
  2. Isn't an open discussion about presenting your point of view, and accepting that other opinions may exist? You say time is the reason rifts are "empty". I say it's the lack of incentive to go there. The first months of rifts were packed, even at 3 at night. Nowdays, biggest reason to attend for many players is the cape, the occasional restock of materials or just tagging along because nothing better to do. So yea, the time circulation as it is now, is fair for everyone. One day it's 8pm for you, some other day it's 8pm for the lads down in kangaroo land. Everything is fine.
  3. As I understand, they need to remove all "icky" QR codes and other inappropriate features one could be sued for But I am also very curious, why is it too soon for NFI? I would love to see what has been done there... If it's because of Defiance, then just exlude it.
  4. Yes, please. This has been requested many times since the bees were introduced more than 2 years ago. All kinds of chats and options have got toggle option meanwhile, but not bees
  5. I had the same kind of thought last week, when I dropped another 10 skulls in one of many piles. Don't even need a fence, just a simple skull on a stick decoration, as we already have flags and banners.
  6. A public slaying does not always have to be well organized in advance, announced a week early and set up with flags and whistles. It's very nice if it's done that way, but there's also the simple alternative. I'll take an example from not too recent past, in Xanadu. The Death Tab popped up for everyone in server, announcing that someone had just been burned alive by a dragon. Now, there is room for speculation, if that player did not have death tab enabled whether or not things would have rolled out differently. But anyway, the word was out. The finder (and nobody questioned who was the owner/finder) decided to have the slaying publicly, and have it the same evening/day. In about 2 hours time, since the death message popped, near 20 players had already gathered in the village of this player. More were streaming in, even from other servers. Priests were doing summons. For the size of Xanadu, this was impressive, really. The dragon was killed [link], near the location it had been found, within a few hours since the word got out. No penning, no deeding, no complex organizing. And honestly, it was the best dragon experience I have had and I think that's what a dragon encounter should be in ideal world.
  7. Despawning and random respawns - fine, but it really should check accessibility in some ways. Perhaps no higher than [x] dirt above water level. Or alternatively, give them slow decay, similar to mob lairs, so they'd poof in a while and respawn somewhere else. Also, more karma use options in PvE would be nice. Everyone keeps asking for portals of all kinds, and since there's already town portal, why not add Starter Town Portal, or Teleport to Rift, or heck why not even Teleport to Friend. Just examples, doesn't need to be anything teleporty, but we have this nice "currency" that is karma and nothing really to do with it, other than summoning worgs for "cool points"...
  8. Well, then it's really confusing, since Retro just wrote that the changes only applied to mining and woodcutting
  9. So just wondering, why did just those two get trampled to mud, but 100ql apples and oats are still a thing. Feels a very politically bribed nerf. There's now a group of people with 5319 crates of 100ql logs and lumps and they will be the sole market suppliers for years to come? I agree that gathering nerf was long time coming, but it should've been like 50% and not down to mud and useless.
  10. I don't really have experience with mob numbers in North, but as step one, devs please! for the love of all that has 3 legs or more - take 90% from current unicorn spawn ratio and give it to horses. Make unicorns rare again. All servers, not just North.
  11. If anyone should pay anything, then it's the one person that turned the item rare without having this request from the client. How would you feel, if you brought your car to the shop for tire exchange, and they did a paintjob "just as a bonus" without even asking you And no, I don't want a replacement car back, I want the same car, new tires, no blue paint. I dare you to take this post seriously
  12. Just a nut here, no peas. One occasion I know of a no-warning dredge situation, is when you try to level a tile that's not entirely under water (-8 slopes). It other words, if a corner of a tile can be dug with a shovel, then try leveling it with a shovel. Even if the tile you are swimming on is 100 below water, yes. Otherwise, a screenshot might be handy here. Good luck cracking!
  13. Common courtesy, eh... Do I need to do it, here and now? But also: should I expect others to think as above, and see things as I do? Behaviour, consideration, compassion, all the "psychology stuff" - we struggle with that in the real world, so massively wrapped and boxed in thousands of laws and directives, and we still manage to not get along. Online game, an environment of anonymity, how much can we really expect any courtesies here at all? We can hope for pleasant people to walk by, but we must also be ready to accept those who see things differently. In the end, as sad as it is, all still boils down to "if I care about it, I better deed it". Not a rule. A precaution.
  14. I am fully in favor of removing all and any taxing on merchants. Cheap and instant mail system already has made merchants pretty much obsolete, there's no need for additional penalties. They're used as personal storage more often than actual merchants these days. Or (and getting beaten to mud for this one) - put a similar 10% tax on mail cost.
  15. Wait till you realize that this wooden arch requires just as many planks to build as a full wall
