In this thread, Coreiel provides information on reporting gold spammers.
Yes. Report any illicit tells you may receive.Go to thread
In this thread, Nethaera provides an answer to the question.
We don't have a date as of yet, I'm sorry. Testing is still ongoing and we would like to continue to encourage people to hop in to the test realms and give things a try.Gladiator Weapons = A joke now. Go to thread
In this thread, Drysc talks about the ongoing item upgrades on the PTR.
Not all of the item buffs have been implemented, the arena items apparently being some of them. As was the case last week when some of the tier set items had been buffed, but not others. The public test realm (PTR) patches are implementing data as we make changes and won't always contain the entire spectrum of intended changes all of the time.
The arena items I've checked don't appear to have received any changes yet. Other items may not reflect their intended values on the current PTR as well.Children's Week Cancelled / Accounts Banned? Go to thread
In this thread, Nethaera announces that Children's Week was not cancelled, only delayed.
Children's Week is not cancelled. It will be occurring at the same time as the 2.1 patch is released and was only delayed.
There was an announcement of accounts that were banned in the European Community recently the same as we make ban announcements here.Why isn't there an LFG channel? Go to thread
In this thread, Eyonix talks about an upcoming chat channel addition: the Global LFG channel.
In the next patch (currently on the public test realms), players will be able to access a global Looking For Group Channel upon joining the Looking For Group/Looking for More interface tool.Chained essence of eranikus Go to thread
In this thread, Tseric discusses the possibility of returning to old, unfinished quest lines.
It is something we've brought up recently, along with other questlines such as "The Missing Diplomat".
While it is on the table, there are no immediate plans to continue these, as we tend to be building new questlines. While we agree that particular story-lines like these are interesting and something that really digs into and drives the lore, that can be done in other places, as well.
Continuing a questline of this kind would require players to have to go back and search for a quest-giver of lower-level than the player is likely to be at. The players who would benefit from this are those that are at the level range when the continued questline is implemented. While some may want to go back to places like Sunken Temple, the level disparity would diminish any sort of actual challenge the quest-line might have. If it is continued for a level-capped player, there is now a large gap between where the quest takes you for the first leg and when you can continue it on the second leg, from a leveling perspective.
Restoring the item is not really that much of an issue. If we were to continue a line, restoring any required items is already possible with current game technology and would be a primary consideration when designing a continuation.
