    Bristlebane Day is active on Test!

    Jesters, thieves, bards, or simply fans of mischief and frivolity, are all encouraged to enjoy these holy days honoring Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane! Begin your celebration in Enchanted Lands, where you will find plenty of laughs and pranks that await you amongst the congregating revelers, like Zruk, a troll interested in items of luck. Elsewhere in the world, you may be fortunate enough to spot the Grand Prankster, himself! Of course, you can get even more involved by crafting your very own items in celebration of this wonderful holiday. Visit your local tradeskill house to purchase these special recipes!

    P.S.

    Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for special events, especially in Enchanted Lands, occurring only on the highest of silly days, April 1st!

    I crafted all of the new recipes and they all worked fine. I placed each one and they all placed fine, including resizing up and down nicely. I checked the descriptions on each one and they all look fine.

    The two new bandanas are fine as well and look good when worn.

    I tested the new quest 'Pot Luck' and everything worked fine, although I do have a couple suggestions regarding the white heather.

    They were very hard to see, even when zoomed in first person and they were not that plentiful. I think it would help to make them a bit bigger and a bit more plentiful.

    Concerning the reward for the quest the vulrich pet, he placed fine, resized fine, and his animations worked fine.

    Any chance we can please get that in a plushie also? Thanks

    When using my mount appearance slot with the Gryphon of a Different Color I can only use ground mounts.

    Oh, I get it. It's a super full weekend for all of us!

    I would have put off testing for a bit to give some breathing room for the 20th anniversary and new servers this weekend, but spring live events scheduling is tight already. *rocks back and forth*

    Right!? And be sure to play with sound on. That was a fun addition.

  11. Kaitheel Developer

    I'll take a look at it!

    Not this year, but I've added the suggestion to my list for next year.

    All the new merchant items are resizing and working correct, (except the mount). Love the Were-Bear Plushie animation!

    Pot of Luck

    - the clovers were easy to find
    - the Ryjesium vulriches could use a slight beefing up for the 110 version of them. (They were almost dead before I could hit them - level 110, thorns buff on me, epic 2 pet beside me - they are pretty underpowered for heroic 110s :D)
    - the heather, as Mirt mentions, needs help. It is only visible from a VERY short distance (it disappears totally if you take a few steps back), and could use some help in that respect. Once I knew to zoom in my focus a lot, I found enough of them, but seeing them is problematic, especially since I was there at "night" game-time.

    Cute little questline!

    What, if anything, will TLE get of this festival?
  18. Mirt Well-Known Member

    Per Kaitheel's notes at the top, FG server gets it all and the new server doesn't get anything.
  19. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    Tiniest of tiny nigglies.

    The new reward for "Pains of Herding" does not use capitalization, so the reward window looks a bit odd. "a ruby skimmer", vs the returning option of "Topaz Skimmer"

    And you're getting into game just fine? Lots of folks on regular Live servers are having major, weird issues. :-/
