    The Living Legacy events appear to be available on your server. Speak to Whizzlebang Twempt in the Steamfont Mountains to request the I.R.A. Marathon and I.R.A. Sprint raids.
    While I was looking into this, I noticed that there are not alerts associated with the Living Legacy events, so I will go ahead and create them.

    From Test Patch Notes (8/12/2015):

    *** Quests & Events ***

    - A cold wind blows through the caverns below the spires that sit at the center of Luclin's deadliest mountains. Practitioners of the dark arts may be interested in seeking this out.


    Will this be a brand new event?

    Just to clarify - do all of these have the proper pop-up/notifications/alerts in-game now? I know you've added them progressively as they've come up but just moreso curious for things that might not have been brought up yet.

    Also, do the alerts list the specific dates? I don't have any on my char ATM so I can't double check but that would be helpful. Like I said... that might already be a thing, just can't recall.

    Each of these events appears to have alert data associated with it. In fact, the events that didn't have a functional alert prior to today referred to an alert ID that did not yet exist and all the strings had already been created. It was the connective data to link everything together that was missing.

    Manually adjusting the start and end times in alert strings when the dates change is a data upkeep nightmare. We'll pursue a more systematic way of making that information available.

    Thanks for the info and the fix(es) Prathun!
  11. beryon Augur

    I appreciate you posting the info, but can you please make more official announcements about upcoming events? From the above it seems you have stuff planned out fairly well in advance, but the schedules you post are always buried in some random complaint thread, and after the event being asked about has already started. Most people are going to be blindsided.

    for some reason i've lost my alerts. anybody know how to get them back?

    actually i should clarify, since i got my new computer i get no alerts. and heck if i can find what governs that either ;)
  16. adetia Monkess Wonder, Ruler of All

    actually as it turns out, several folks no longer get the alert window. and none of us can find a way to re-enable it. is it possible its being drawn out of bounds for some of us?
  17. Crystilla Augur

    It's been mentioned before, a simple way of doing this would just be include the end date inside of the text alert that is created. Only has to be touched if the event is extended, which is a small portion of the total events run each year.

    The end date would be awesome. Considering that it took me almost 10 days to get more then 3 players at once for DDD. To finally get a constant group of 5-6 every night the last 3 days. It might help waking up people that these events are not permanent.
