So, the seven page woad planter odyssey comes to an end. I was starting to develop a nostalgic attachment to that thread, seeing it resurface in the Suggestions section repeatedly for the last 2,5 years. :P

Probably only new ones, the tether is created at spawn

just tested. All uniques are now untethered and do not go back to their spawn after unaggroing. They move once towards it and then stop. One of the uniques got caught in a loop of trying to aggro me and trying to get back to where it wanted to go and got itself stuck in a mine within 30 seconds of seeing me. seems very untested, and with no way of locating them if they get themselves stuck in a mine they're going to be almost impossible to find should that happen

Nice job on the Uniques!  I think this is going to make life immensely more entertaining.  With the extremely low server populations, it could take months or more to find one, which is as it should be.

With the excessive greed with years long history and low population mostly given up on these.. one can only hope for a change.........

 

As for woad planters \o/

Small issue - still no plant keybind for herbs/woad in planters : /

This seems a bit excessive to me.  You can only use this ability once every 18 hours.  It does not seem unreasonable to allow a player to check if he's going to get steam-rolled on the way to/from his deed once every 18 hours...

 

Yeah I know... folk might somehow abuse it and not everybody will get their chance for a swing at the legendary (*passes a tissue*).  But I'd like to point out that's not everybody's mindset.  The chances for Get Info to get abused - in light of all the other changes - seems minimal, and I don't see a reason to nerf the non-abusers.

I'm curious as to what the thought behind Players obtaining tomes now. First we had uniques with their 100% drop rate, then they were nerfed to humanoid only at somethingl ike 50% rate or whatever, then we had people farming personal goals, and now uniques from what i can gather are supposed to be something you get lucky/unlucky enough to encounter in the wilderness with any way of finding them removed. Quite a few of the tome spells are rather strong and now they're locked behind layers of rng upon rng ( rng for finding unique, rng for whether tome drops, rng for whether its a tome you need) or you have to pay out the ass to get them. Also includes getting scale/drake sets as drake/scale drops are completely rng aswell i guess, but i can't really think of any times where 20+ of them dropped in a single day like goal tomes did. seems like a pretty decent window of opportunity now that there's not really any way of *working* towards collecting tomes, is there any thought towards making these things able to be obtained in other ways that you can work towards?

Pretty sure they mean that it wont work to locate uniques with it.. should be working as intended for anything else/that's a guess tho.. still haven't logged in to check.

sorry bout that, it was just the way it's worded.
it could easily have been a generalization ty for clearing that up.
Legendary creature location functionality removed from getinfo

 

ah damnit, my stupid brain didn't read the first `from`

Thanks for nerfing botanize even more.

 

You've literally left us with nettles and nutmeg.  Completely useless now.

All very good changes that should make locating these creatures more difficult and time consuming, thus the term "Legendary" may more appropriately apply to them. Any pathing bugs will be worked out over time, no doubt.

 

Nice change for woad planting too, to make this the opposite effect of the above (commonly available to all). Well done's to ya!

Botanize and forage will shine on Elevation during the "roughing it, survival" phase after reset. The problem I see is that there is no regular "field" for the true strength of the skills.

Fantastic update, thank you. For an old game we have a great team looking after us. 

Would be a good idea to add tomes to journal steps or similar thought process, there needs to be a better way to obtain and less of a ridiculous price set in my opinion.
