Good ! and thank you for that...

 

However, could the option "discard" be added to foraged rocks - and.... Please do the same for branches.

I asked for clarification for this, it's about fruit trees and the calendar.

  • Bugfix – Frost, fire, and acid imbues will now dispel properly.

So do these imbues actually work yet or is this just a case of "lol you ruined your weapon with this buggy feature, I guess we'll let you dispel it now"?

I actually asked the same thing, they now can be dispelled, can they now work? Haha,

 

Turns out theyre related to vulnerabilities. They dont deal wounds like frostbrand or flaming aura, but the weakness to x or resistance to x from sorcery tomes is affected by those imbues

I find it amusing there was enough time allocated to these changes but yet none for a  simple change like removing the information minister current mechanic that's widely supported by every pvp kingdom. The longer the pvp changes are delayed the less of an impact it will have. It's not hard to see that there currently is a steady decline of players on a daily basis from pvp servers. Retrograde mentioned he wanted all the changes to come as a "pack" so it had some advertising and marketing value so to say but it will have less and less each day / week that goes by. You won't be attracting new players with these changes to be honest you will be attracting old players that quit the game because of the current state, but by the time you do release these they will have long moved on. There are many changes that have been discussed all of which impact pvp mechanics a decent amount, some are simple others are complex. In my opinion the best thing that can be done is to release bits and pieces get the simple changes out of the way, make the big ones like meditation changes the ones you target for advertising to try to entice new players and old ones alike to play on the pvp servers. With the recent lost of two devs, wurm is left with two employed client developers only one of them being art. (Source : http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Developers ) So it's only natural to expect things to slow down a  bit and what I suggested above will keep the pvp community a bit more satisfied then what we got now and probably will stop the daily lost players potential even start gaining, while the devs work on the big changes. 

 

 

Disclaimer - not bashing devs or anything like that before some forum mod power trips and bans for talking about the Dev team. just want want the game to get better not to keep on a decline (pvp community )

Guess JK didn't enjoy us bashing the light.

 

So. About 'em pvp changes... Where are they?

I mean... the "I told you so" was a thing i pulled on my fellow kingdom members when the basic stuff like information minister wasnt there for the first week or two. (considering its a 5-10 min change... its litterary the deletion of code...)

But its been over a month now... dafuq is going on?
