    Would it be possible to get the patch notes ahead of the server coming down?
  3. WhtRabbit Journeyman

    They never have and I don't expect they ever will. I believe at least in the "old" days it was because they were making changes up to the last minute before they pushed a patch so getting notes ahead of time would have been pointless.
  4. JChan Developer

    This still is an option when it comes to the test server.

    I was hoping there would be some mention of Test Dummies being upgraded in HPs and Regen, so they don't die in this patch.
  6. CaptAmazing Augur

    Those that can, would you report on the drops rates of the shards now?
  7. Xean-Bard-Drinal New Member

    So far, 4 hours of non stop killing in the ferrott of the dream.. not one shard :(
  8. JChan Developer

    I was just informed that we didn't increase the drop rates. Sorry!

    To Jen and all of the coders who made this possible:

    - The states of toggled buttons in the Pet Window will now persist through pet or player death.

    You have everyone's sincere thanks! :)
  10. Bauer Augur

    Its ok, as long as it gets patched to live :)
  11. Elizabeta Augur

    This boggles me. What is the point of putting in a quest, announced very boldly in the last significant patch, then make it nearly impossible for anyone to do it?

    Oh hehe was just about to post that if you did change it, it was from 0.05% to 0.06% because after 212 kills in Toskk tonight not one shard, lol
  13. Candydare Elder

    Giddy Up! Please:)

    there is no quest, at least not yet.magus will accept your shards, give you faction and thats it. even max ally nothing happens.

    Last year I failed several times to get the advance for alaran 5 points. I fail to see why peeps expect that whatever this prerelease setup is, that it would be a giveaway or in anyway easy. That said I tend to think that there will be more to come closer to release, and as there is almost 4 weeks to go, keep making an effort or don't.
  16. Gherig Augur

    Its not ppl looking for a easy way, well some maybe, but most just want to actually have the shards drop. I personally have tried now for a couple weeks to get even one single shard and still have not seen a single one drop, either in Ferrott, Toskk or even Blightfire / Goru shrouded down.
  17. Piemastaj Augur

    Can you eliminate the pets telling us what they are doing every time they zone or unsuspend? It is vastly unnecessary and is more useless spam.
  18. Baramos Augur

    Piemastaj makes a very valid point. A wall of pet spam every time you zone or suspend/unsuspend a can be more than annoying, it could even cause a player to miss important emotes while suspending/unsuspending a pet.
  19. gcubed Augur

    Nearly impossilbe for some, quite possible for others. I have 26 of the shards (one I can't use without deleveling A LOT).
  20. Sebbina Augur

    Well it only takes 20 to max faction, the 21st says you are at max and no gain, i deleveled a couple of toons to 85 (with Exped recovery avail to restore lost levels) and used the 71-85 shards. Even with almost 4 weeks to go, i dont expect every one to max faction.
