  1. No, that's the rift of 24th of September. I'm afraid that one is closed a very long time ago. Thorin
  2. Wimp. Looks like you just tried to get to 100 Bull shitting instead. But challenge accepted, so what about 100 Weapon Smithing? Thorin
  3. I can only speak of my own experience, but I'd say, don't leave. Just play the game at your own leisure, don't focus at grinding, but instead enjoy the things you do. There's absolutely no need to grind skills to a certain point, just because it means you can build or imp a certain thing after that. The reason: no matter what you do, you will gain skill and characteristics anyway. So instead of grinding masonry because you want to build that Colossus, just cut the bricks and the moment you feel like you're not in the mood for it, don't cut bricks, but instead take your boat and go hunting. If you feel like doing some ship building, do so, but if you don't, no biggie. That ship will be done sooner or later anyway. The biggest difference between playing casual or at your own leisure and focusing at a grinding is that with the latter you'll get frustrated if you spend 4 hours to get a skill to a certain point, just to find out you still need 0.000001 tick to get there; while when playing casual you'll be like: "Huh? I made 70 mining and I didn't even grind it!" And believe me, the latter is more fun as the former. (once again, from own experience ) Also; play this game if you feel like it; not because you have to. The moment you think you have to play Wurm, it isn't a game anymore, but a job. And one you don't get paid for either. But if you play this game the moment you feel you may like to play a bit; being it an hour, half an hour or half a day; you'll notice you'll enjoy things a lot more too. And that's what gaming in general is all about, to enjoy it by enjoying what you do, what you have done, the environment, the community and so on. Looking at your journal , you have done several of these enjoyments. I'm quite certain you will get the other ones sooner or later as well. Thorin
  4. With all due respect, but that's a bull ###### assumption. I've travelled to quite some countries outside the one I'm living in and not all had the same kind of devellopment as my country does have. Which means that I have experienced a night without light sources, I have experienced darkness inside a cave with just a single flashlight for 10 people and I have experienced a black-out during a foggy night with no more as 15 meters sight in the first place. So don't assume anyone NOT living in Poland hasn't experienced "real" darkness, because I have and I'm pretty certain a large number of players NOT living in Poland have too. And about quoting my "No, it isn't"; I clearly expained why I said that. I also explained why I made the reference about Wurm Winter, which is a discussion point from before I began playing 5 years ago. However, you either decided to ignore it or just don't want to read it,as you too are showing that selfish behaviour. Obviously the nights are too dark for you, but you won't accept that they aren't for others. That's fine with me, but keep in mind that with that kind of behaviour you won't make many friends out here. Thorin
  5. A GLOW rune isn't a lantern. A LANTERN is a device created to shine a light around you and the better the ql, the more it would light up the area around you I can't even play this game at my laptop, so does that mean my subscription price should be cut in half; as I can have only half of my alts online at once? I really wish players would stop begging for some compensation the moment something in this game is bugged or not working. No, it isn't. Some want darker nights, some won't and those two groups will always clash. Same as those two days some players call winter. For some it lasts two long, for others too short, for some it's too bright etc. The time the gaming community thought and acted as a community in this game are already passed. The only time something like a real community shows up, is when we have an impalong; although I've noticed that even those are more focussed at the continent the person organizing is from, as global. But selfishness is something that's more common as exception these days. And I fear it'll only get worse. As for my personal stance on this matter: I'd love to see the darker nights I remeber from when starting this game back in 2015. It was quite fun to see the effect of your lantern or what happened when the lights at your deed went on. Not to mention not being able to see 4 tiles ahead in a tunnel. However, considering things are right now, I also see the benefits of it; most important making it a lot easier NOT to get lost (unless you're Retro, streaming and trying to turn in a tunnel........).

  6. Since I don't speak any of the used languages, I have disabled Non-English help chat in my profile. However, after upgrading my game with the latest (September 12th) patch, the Non-English help chat appeared on my screen again. When checking it in my profile, I noticed the chat was enabled, while I have been playing it with disabled quite some time. Hence my conclusion that last patch auto-enabled something I - and most likely many others - would like to keep disabled. Thorin
  7. Good thing Thorinoakenshield is living at another server. Otherwise he'd had a hard time terraforming his deed over here. Thorin
  8. Yes, it is, because I've been planting Olive trees the moment it's flat. Thorin Oh crap. I wasn't allowed to mention that yet.
  9. I was about to post that I'll be there with at least one character (Thorin), but it seems I'm already on the list even before I was able too. I will most certainly trying to be there with Thorin (doing CAS, BS, Carp - Fine Carp? - and if possible WS) and my alt Frodobaggins (doing LW and probably Cloth). There's a chance I'll bring my Mag priestess Ironmaiden as well, although she's not suited enough to do good casts; but certainly is able to work along in a sermon group if needed. And hopefully I'm able to drag a few other alliance members along as well. Edit: Thorin is also able to do Ship imping, up to - and hopefully far over - 65QL Thorin
  10. What happened to the British approach of being polite and not using any (well, not much) violence? This looks more like a cowboy (cowgirl?) approach. Thorin
  11. He's probably sailing away with it, but forgot to screenshot it first. Thorin
  12. From what I heard, the move was done one bit at the time. Thorin
  13. For the right opening time according to your local time: Check Niarja. Thorin
  14. I'm still wondering if the title shouldn't be: But I may of course be mistaken. Thorin
  15. Welcome back, lassie. 'Tis good to see the bearded lady and friends back ingame. Hope all is well now, as well that all got sorted in game. If you need help, feel free to contact me. Thorin
  16. For those wondering at which time it opens: Check the usual Niarja page. Thorin
  17. You don't need Dev-support, you need this: Guideline to Heritage Sites But that only comes into play after the entire project is finished. So what you would need first is a group of players working at this project, then doing and completing the project and eventually applying for Heritage. However, with all the ongoing public projects, I fear that the first step would be the most difficult. Thorin
  18. As was discussed in Freedom chat yesterday; There should be a tunnel between Darq falls and Darqness, however it's exact starting location is unknown. There are two paths between those deeds leading to the mountain between them, so it's a bit of a guess. Players also may need permission from the deed owner - which is either @AJBlackor @Yldrania; I got mixed messages on that - to mine from the Darq Falls deed to the top of the mountain where the rift is. Given the terrible location, the fact the deed owner of Darq Falls most likely hasn't been online for quite some time and the fact that this proofs that the old approach of being in and preparing the area as fast after the moment a rift has spawned, instead of arriving last minute works a lot better, I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to just keep this one open until it auto-closes. Although I don't know how long that might take. Thorin
  19. Please remove Brasschaat (3086, 2836)-ish from the map as that deed has dropped a while ago. Also.. please change the description of Darq canal from (Canal / Tunnel / Knarrs only) Into (Canal / Knarrs only) as the tunnel aspect of that canal has been ruined for about a year now. Thorin
  20. Only one thing to say - as a non-pvp player - THIS should have been posted BEFORE the patchnotes were posted, not AFTER! Imagine you're walking into your favorite bar, ordering your favorite brand of beer and the bar tender tells you it's no longer being sold, because "someone" considered it having too much hops into it. I'm pretty damn sure you'd be upset, to say the least. Yet, for this game, things like these happen all the time. And I'm asking you, WHY?? Thorin
  21. To clarify; The area beneath the bridge needs to be clear of all obstacles. Being it mine entrances, trees, bushes, another part of the house or even a simple barrel (yes, I had that happening to me); make sure that before you start planning, nothing is obstructing the construction. Rule of thumb when building bridges next to houses to get to the next floor: Bridge slope can be maximum 20 dirt From ground floor to first floor, the height is 33 dirt; meaning 2 tiles are needed for a bridge to connect; Every floor after that is 30 dirt high, also meaning you need 2 tiles to connect to the next floor This even applies when you want to connect two seperate buildings with a bridge; HOWEVER, there's one exeption! When you want to connect two buildlings using a bridge at the same level (floor), you can actually build a one tile bridge. Hope this helps planning your building. Thorin
  22. Does that mean using groups in inventory isn't possible anymore, or is that search function for ppl like you, @Retrograde, who have unsorted inventories and can't find things during streams? Thorin
  23. There's a reason why leather and studded leather are brown coloured. -1 Thorin
