Chaos JK/MR Template Alts

 

 

 

There are no more template Jenn-Kellon and template Mol-Rehan avatars who were not converted to Freedom Isles on Chaos!   The situation regarding this has been randomly abused to small degrees by a few people to make some legacy template gear for personal reasons or market sales, but at this time most of the gear I have checked out is a mix of old and new.

 

We are not concerned about any legacy items you may have in this matter, (unless of course you have an inordinate amount!) but there is no way to convert to template anymore to abuse this now that all old template avatars that never logged back in are ALL now Freedom Isles.

Spirited Away

 

 

 

You should not be able to cast Phantasm on guards on any server and make them kill bred, cared for, or friendly creatures on deeds.  The guards should not have been targeting these creatures on deed.

A fix is prepared, but until then, DO NOT CAST Phantasms on guards!

You have been warned!

Wagoners Strike of 1084

 

 

 

The wagoners are staging a strike at this time over the 'unsafe exit conditions in tunnels'.   They feel their horses should be issued wide brim hats to protect their eyes when exiting dark tunnels to stop the horses from being spooked by the bright light. and having 'unpleasant gaseous expenditures'.

 

Until the situation with the wagoners union is resolved, wagoners who try to travel through tunnels end up abandoning their duties and leaving their cargo at the end of the tunnels due to the overwhelming smells being emitted by their spooked horses.

https://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/170672-wagoner-bug-after-27-june-update/

 

"neither the wind, nor hail, nor, sleet, nor snow, shall deter a wagoner's duty, but a set of farting horses is a serious natural disaster!"

- Wagoner General - Yakovik Torman

Just an additional note: It seems to happen with shallow waters as well.

Elevation Champions and You

 

 

 

Due to the champion changes with the Epic work and Elevation reset resetting champion faith to 70 instead of 50, anyone becoming a champion as of the Valrei International post will have their faith set to 1, and the full penalty of dechamping applied. Champions existing prior to this announcement will receive the proposed reductions in skill and faith.

 

Edit: If any players who have championed with the intention of being reset to 70 faith as per the VI news, if they dechamp prior to the update and downtime we will not take action.

ENDED - 08/01/2019

 

 

 

Until further notice a Raid Ban is in effect for Elevation.

Loding and Unloding Zones

 

 

 

Do not use Epic portals from jackal to return to Epic home servers or Elevation! (You never know where you will end up.  Or what!)

Do not try to travel to Elevation from the Epic home servers with anything in your inventory! (Kiss those shiny items bye bye if you do!)

Do not travel to Elevation from any home server using any means other than the Epic portals! (Lodestones are not for travel to Elevation!)

Jackal Rollover Points

 

 

 

Not too long back there was a short window of opportunity during an update where people would cross over from Jackal to freedom and back and have their Jackal points and skills increased with each transfer.

Fortunately, there was very little in the way of abuse during this matter and we collected the server records in order to correct this.  As of today we now have the means to correct the unintended jackal point gains and skill gains incurred by those that transferred during this window and are in the process of finally doing so.

Raid Ban - 10/31/2019

ENDED - 11/02/2019

 

 

 

Today's rollback due to certain undesirable things happening, has caused mine doors placed during the time between the update and the rollback to play a trick on their owners.

Now they just sit there and laugh as the very people who very kindly and gently placed them onto their holes in the ground, try to pass through them and end up smashing face first into them.

 

I get it, I get it... It's Halloween... why should the pumpkins get to have all the fun!  Unfortunately, the mine doors forgot one thing... who their owners were..., and Since they do not trust a smiling face as proof of passage they let no one pass beyond.

 

So...  All PVP servers are now under a RAID BAN for about the next 24 hours to let the owners report their holiday prankster doors to the GM's for replacement.  For everyone not on the PVP servers, if you placed your mine doors during this update and rollback window, you are affected to.  Just send us a support ticket and we will help you out as soon as possible.

 

Thank You,

Wurm Online Team.

 

Update: This ban is now over as any who cared to report their deed lockouts have been given ample time to do so.  We will still assist with messed up mine doors, but PVP deeds have had enough time to report theirs if it was urgent.

Ol'buddy'o'Paypal'o'mine

 

 

 

At the moment there is a slight change with the Paypal system causing some shop purchases to not go through instantly.  The issue is minor but causes the Paypal system to sometimes fail to instantly confirm purchase.  This issue will be remedied pretty quickly with a planned hotfix.  This issue does not affect our other payment processors.  Until then, if you are one of the few who have made a Paypal purchase via the Wurm Online Shop and it does not appear on your avatar within a few hours, please send an email to payment@wurmonline.com with a quick description including the avatar name the shop purchase was for, the Paypal transaction ID, and the item purchased from the shop.  We will get these few instances manually confirmed and taken care of very quickly, usually within a work day.

There's No Place Like Stronghold!

 

 

 

The Stronghold will open soon!  This is a reminder to all Jackal participants!  Be on Jackal when the Stronghold closes or you will receive no points.

You can be offline, just be sure that your avatar is on the server or you will not get credit for your participation in the Stronghold event!

Again, you MUST be on Jackal when the Stronghold is closed or you will miss out on the points.

 

As I said before.... oh... just be sure that you are on the Jackal server for the closing.

Trader Relocation Project

ENDED - 04/01/2020

 

 

 

With the upcoming changes to traders and deed upkeep, we are going to be offering everyone with old traders a chance to move them.

This is a simple one time process from now until April 1st.

If you own a deed and have a trader that you would like relocated to a different location on your deed, or you have a trader currently sitting on a satellite deed that you would like moved to your main deed, please put in a support ticket requesting the move once you have the location ready.

 

The only conditions are that you are the mayor of the deed since before January 25th and the trader is on deed.

This is a one time move for each person for one trader to be relocated to their main deed if desired.

We cannot move traders across servers, so this is per server in case you have a main deed on more than one server.

 

It may take us a bit of time to get to each request, but do not worry, as long as we receive the requests before April 1st of this year we will get to you.

 

Thank You,

Wurm Online Team

Permission Impossible

 

 

 

Alright, lets get to it shall we...

 

Your deeds come with a set of default permission roles to help in the administration of your deed, but there is a misunderstanding spreading around that is making it possible for someone to raid some of your deeds on the PVE servers.   Some of you for some reason are renaming the Non Citizen role to attempt to grant a single person or group access to your deed, but this is NOT a shortcut as the role is still for non citizens!  Yes, you can rename the default roles, but that does not change their focus.   By renaming the Non Citizen role you are doing nothing but giving it a new name, not changing who it affects.   This misunderstanding about renaming the default permission roles is allowing a person to do some very unsavory activities on our PVE servers.  At this time I do not know if this person is intentionally spreading this misinformation or is simply exploiting it to raid PVE deeds, but this activity will be stopped as raiding and mass looting active deeds is a PVP activity and not acceptable on our PVE servers.

 

Now let me be clear!  You are responsible for proper deed security settings, so please make sure you have not set yourself up for falling victim to this situation.  Renaming roles is your privilege, but it does not change the default roles' targeted player group!

 

Thank You,

Potions on the Northern Freedom Isles

 

 

 

Hi Everyone!

 

We've seen some people obtaining and selling potions and imbues on the Northern Freedom Isles. As a reminder, these are disabled until further notice as per our patch notes last week:

 

On 7/24/2020 at 9:46 AM, DevBlog said:

PvE (Harmony) rules are the same as all other Freedom Isles servers, with the exception of rift, rift scouts and imbue crafting and usage being currently disabled

We will be removing these from the gift pack item list for the Northern Freedom Isles in a coming update, sorry we missed it!

 

In the meantime, if you have obtained one please log a support ticket for us to collect it and refund you the marks spent on the gift box items.

 

Thank You,

Wurm Online Team

Fight/Shield Skill Gaining Without Resistance

 

 

 

It is possible to devise scenarios with unintended methods to enter combat with creatures, with the intention to gain skills, that prevent the creature from being able to do normal harm to you and your equipment, or prevent yourself from doing normal intended harm to the creature.  Such scenarios are clearly not intended and can lead to the permanent ban of your avatars when caught using such a method.

 

The targeting of a distant creature while in combat with another creature does not fall into the unintended category as this not much different than selecting your chosen target when begin attacked by multiple creatures..

Your choice of equipment does not fall into the unintended category, unless of course it creates an unexpected never before seen result.

Overriding your combat actions against a creature with non hostile actions (ex. taming) is not considered unintended

 

The type of things that do fall into unintended, would be like using a building, or fence, or mine, or the like to give you or the creature an invulnerable like state while gaining skills.

 

Several people have been caught and penalized for this activity in the past and recently several others were penalized after the activity was detected.  If you ever encounter a scenario like this or ANY scenario of unattended skill gain with or without the use of a macro, you should report it so it can be promptly looked into and officially replicated for testing and correction.

 

Thank You,
