    Bristlebane Day is active on Test!

    Jesters, thieves, bards, or simply fans of mischief and frivolity, are all encouraged to visit Enchanted Lands during these holy days honoring Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane! But that’s certainly not the only place where laughs and japes await you. I know for a fact, Southern Ro and Vetrovia has had an influx of patchcraft creatures and there’s been reports of bovoch riders getting pranked! So, be on the lookout for shenanigans of all kinds! Of course, you can get even more involved by crafting your very own items in celebration of this perfectly serious holiday. Visit your local tradeskill house to purchase these special recipes!

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

    1.) Rivervale Kitchen Fireplace: The wrought iron spit is protruding beyond the bottom of the fireplace. Does not effect placement, only cosmetic.

    2.) Thicket Fir Rocking Chair: Bottom of seat has the cushion texture not wood.

    3.) Pickclaw Reveler Plushie: His right side fingertips disappear into the floor with the thumb going the deepest into the floor, only cosmetic.

    4.) Blooming Sunset Barrel Cactus: Resize smaller? When placed part of it sinks into the ground but can be raised up.

    5.) Rivervale Sconce: Flames are floating above the sconce candles.

    6.) Rivervale Chandelier: Not all candles have flames (intended?) and flames not attached to candles.

    New Quest “Saddle Up" = I did not encounter any problems with this quest or the reward.

    Will the loot from the patchwork keeper be upgraded to include level 125?

    I can confirm patchcraft snappers in Takish Badlands.

    Also the canopy mount to the ceiling on the Rivervale Chandelier is protruding up into the tile I tested it on and can't be pulled down.

    Kaith, you might want to remove the part about the entire event being live on Kaladim, as Kaladim will cease to exist on 3/23/23 - the day before the event goes live. Other than that... Guess I'll have to log in on Test later :D
  9. Kaitheel Developer

    Ah, yes! I had written that all up waaay before any date for the merger had been nailed down. Good catch!

    Oh! I'll ask about getting some loot for 125. At the very least, I'll make the level 120 loot drop in Takish Badlands.

    Any chance you force everyone into /cutemode again for April 1? LOL I would love to see that!
  12. Kaitheel Developer

    We've got two changes headed to the servers in time for the event:
    • Blooming Sunset Barrel Cactus - House item initial scale is now much smaller.
    • Patchraft keepers now have level 125 loot!
    I'm not sure when these changes will be on Test, but they should be included in the update notes at that time.

    This makes me very happy. :D Also, love the new crafted house items and the purple palatial tiles, they look great.

    thanks for the 2 outfits on the merchant

    you better be at least level 44 in Enchanted lands if you don't what to have fight for your collectables with the mobs.
    And the spawn rate for the pie collection is a little slow.
  17. Kattt Well-Known Member

    FYI, both race leaderboards are not working. The scores all say "Nobody with 0 snacks" in both zones, for both races. I even tried racing 12 times in one of them to see if it needed more than one race to start recording scores. But it still says the same.
