    Any response or acknowledgement from Devs would be appreciated. At least even a "it's on the list to be fixed" or something lol.

  5. OGEQprincipals New Member

    Still no word on this one huh?

    Another patch coming up and this wasn't mentioned. Has it been swept under the rug?

    There is a link in this post to the quest on Zam's that sheds some light on the reason for this

    Except by the time I was level 7 to 8 back in the day I had somewhere around 40 plat. Keeping in mind that leveling was so slow back then and there was no PoK to gate to as a low level that could gate that changing it did more damage to the TLP's and the rest of the servers than anyone wants to admit. Even with the low level that can gate to PoK it's just ludicrous that this warranted any attention to make this change.

    Back in 1999 I leveled an inkie rogue to level 8 doing the dark shield of ebon quest over and over. It was grueling, the shields sold for little over a silver and it was just running around trying to avoid dying while gathering snake fangs and snake scales ever so slowly. So that post exaggerates the so called 'exploit'. If it was because it is more doable with a non kos race in those cities then that is just part of the game.

    the exploit with the post master quest is actually because people could print 100ish plat an hour automated on every new tlp on the first day with out leveling up or doing anything else. and buy a bunch of cheap krono from people who didnt know better.

    the change was good for tlps, this quest being bugged for some people is accidental collateral damage that i would assume is somewhat tricky to fix. you have to get the hot quest to read the newer quest.
    or remake the quests to give less gold / plat and remove the only once flag or remake the post master challenge quest to go deliver a letter to each bard

    They just need to make the quest giver look at the deliverys already made and give credit. They must be flagged some how to stop them being repteatable.

    Having the postmaster check for delivered mail flags when hailed seems like a legit fix. Can a Dev reset the mail delivery flags on an individuals toon? If so, I'll do the mail again if they can't figure out a semi easy fix. Doesn't seem like it should be that big a deal. or just make it give less coin for reward. thats an easy across the board fix I would think no? then it could be repeatable

    TBH I don't think this is very important to them so I don't think its high on their to do list. If thats the case I don't see why they don't pass out the rewards to people that petition with proof they completed it.

    Wait for the dev to suddenly become motivated after 10 years.
  18. Pikollo Augur

    I am sure this is low on the totem pole. Just looking for an update if we should expect anything on this or not. Or maybe if we can petition for the items? Maybe it would be easier to remove the postmasters flag all together so people can just do the quests without it.
