    I've searched the bug forums but haven't located this topic yet, so apologies if it's been discussed already. What happened to the Spirit Shroud NPC's in PoK? I'm stuck in shroud form and there're no NPC's (Yaldu Bwor specifically) around to unshroud me...

    Sorry, newb poster. This is on Drinal, not sure if it's a server-wide problem...

    The Shroudkeepers have been temporarily removed from the Plane of Knowledge. If you wish to remove your shroud, please open a petition with Customer Service.

    Can we get an update on what "temporarily removed" means?

    Without Yaldu Bwor it isn't possible to get the higher ranks of the Gnoll Reaver Fortitude AA.

    Temporarily means it isn't a permanent removal. It will return. Most likely something was broken, and needed immediately removed so not to cause issues during the time it takes them to fix the problem.

    Yaldu is available year round (with this exception due to the bug), so he should be available, even if it takes them all of anniversary season to fix.

    None of the shroudkeepers were restored in this latest patch. Can we please not let "temporarily" slip into de facto "permanently"?

    Higher ranks of Gnoll Reaver Fortitude AA cannot be achieved while these NPCs are missing.

    My money is on a persona/shroud exploit.

    My money is on them breaking shrouds in some way when they converted the shroud tab to be persona tab.

    That wouldnt be the case, or they would have left it in till its an issue to fix (see every other broke thing still in game), now an exploit or anything to gain users an unintended advantage is an immediate yank out of game as soon as they catch it.
  10. Alnitak Augur

    Personas are a one big exploit overall. And personas are still in the game. Something is very wrong with shrouds for DPG to yank those out.
  11. Knifen Augur

    If you feel Personas are an Exploit than you only validate what i said. It would only get yanked due to an exploit.

    What's the status on this? "Temporary" is currently going on two months.

    And absolutely nobody on the dev team caught whatever the bug/exploit is until they had that guide event across several servers that required players to shroud down to level 5. It was about an hour after that event started that they removed the shroudkeepers and everyone was stuck in their shrouded form.

    Because seriously...why would devs shroud down for ANYTHING these days to test something?

    From the patch notes on test.

    Looks like we may get these back in the next live patch. Thanks to whomever has been working on this!

    I see they are back on Test. Anyone know if they've been changed in a way that would affect normal shroud usage? Any changes we should be aware of?

    Still not back on live - any word on this?
