Hi all,

We just made some changes that resolved this for some users so please try again. Firefox users still need to allow mixed content by pressing the shield in their address bar (on the left of the url).

Well the new start is interesting. And probably a little more understandable for newcomers. Essence now fires until the NPC is dead instead of once like it used to, so the auto attack is working. You can equip a water can in a weapon slot? Bought a water can, farming quest gave me another. After farming had one with 3 in it, the other with 99 in it. Thought I would top off the 99 by placing the 3 on top of it. It disappeared and I found it in the offhand weapon slot?

 

Edit 2.0: You can no longer equip the bag received at the end of Gathering Professions/Farming. Hold 4 items, takes up four bp spaces if you cannot equip it.

 

Edit 2.1: ! is staying green on an empty notice board. Eldevin City Hospital/canal area.

so i've been tailoring in the hope to be able to make me some gear plus i need to level it so i can make the helm for the relic set (still think this is a bad idea)

 

it costs me 19 silver to purchase 112 weak dye but after creating about 10 items with the 100 coarse cloth i only make 3 silver back this doesn't seem very fair to me? that's not to mentiong the couple of silver it cost me to farm the jute,  i think the prices need to be tweaked somwhere or people are never going to get anywhere

 

is it only the tailoring profession that this is happening in? i'm not goin to be able to buy anything if i keeps going

Quick Question.. 

 

our Vault in bank. it appears as though we can't put bound items in there is this another thing that has changed and we're not allowed to send bound items to our alts any more??

 

i only spotted this cause i was running out of space and i tried to use it as extra storage i can't understand why we wouldn't be allowed to pass items between our alts

One thing I'm concerned about in this patch:

 

The purchase of gold within the cash shop.

 

I think this system is dangerous. It lets people (more specifically supporters w/o a gold cap) to generate extreme amounts of gold and damage the economy. They will hurt the economy because this gold doesn't come from other players and doesn't rely on trade.

 

Instead, you can let players trade vanity items purchased from the shop for gold. This at least lets the players and economy determine how much money players make using the shop. (And it at least encourages trade between players and moves money around.)

I wouldn't worry.  Based on another HCS game, no one will ever use it, as the points sell for much more to other players :)

 

And it actually helps keep the economy going.


Meleager, ranger

Tuor, templar (sort of active)

Deimos, mage (inactive)

Thangbrand, warrior

 

And yes, I'm also still Bart.  As long as no one steals the name :).
