    The Heroes' Festival has begun! We invite all Norrathian adventurers to commemorate our years of questing, raiding, tradeskilling, house decorating, and socializing. Celebrators can be found in Qeynos Capitol District and the city of Freeport, alongside special event merchants hawking some new wares in honor of the festivities. You won't want to miss The Mischeva Play-Actors and their clothwork creations touring through Antonica, the Commonlands, Sinking Sands, Kylong Plains, the Eidolon Jungle, and Stonebrunt Highlands!

    I must warn you though, not all is well during this time of celebration. Laral Spenler, a traveling trader in Antonica, claims to have witnessed a mysterious abduction. She now waits for the hero she claims is fated to help.

    These all could be purchased and placed properly, and the prices look sane.

    I was able to figure out the mount fine (and it converts properly to a house item), but there are WAY too many equipment items on that vendor for me to figure out which 6 are new. Any hints? (set name?)

    If there's that many now is it time for a new item vendor split yet?

    The overseer series works as it should, the house item places properly, and the prefix title works as expected. :D

    Encounter no problems with quest mobs scaling to Level 120.

    Currently trying to copy one of my characters over to test on Halls of Fate, but it saying it is disasble for the moment. :) Would love to try out some of the newer content prior.

    Agree with above comment, having to raise a new toon is many peoples biggest obstacle to testing. Would test copy, similar to beta copy, ever be available?

    There is a buff dropping in your inventory after a couple seconds with an insta-level to 110 (TS and adventure one)
  11. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    You cannot copy on Test, but as Whilhelmina mentioned, you get a buff bauble in your inventory after you log in a new character. (It stealth-adds. There is no message, so just look in your bags :D)

    While doing my House Item Preview videos, I noticed that the item "Lair of Scale Standard". The cloth doesn't scale up, it actually shrinks into more of a triangle shape instead of keeping rectangular shape. Not sure if that is desired behavior or not.

    Oh, that's all code based, for some reason.. how odd. I assume it is related to the cloth code being used on it. I'm not sure if there's anything we can do to adjust it.

    I don't see the "Lair of Scale Standard" as having that problem when I scale it up.

    I think it is to late for this request , but we were creating a memorial for a fallen Guardian in our guild .
    We would need a great looking Great sword and a tower shield to decorate his tome with , but on Kaladim we are limited.
    I was wondering if we could get a nice great sword house item on our merchant for Hero Festival , pretty please , I don't think there are any tower shields for decorating .

    If you're willing to spend actual cash, the Marketplace probably has swords and shields that can be wall-mounted. Since I can't get into game at the moment, I can't confirm, but I think at least some of the appearance gear converts to house items.

    Otherwise, you put a shield on a mannequin, then sink the mannequin into a wall until only the shield shows. You have to roll then a little to get the round stand on the bottom into the wall as well. That's how I decorated this room:

    Weaponsmith Essentials Volume 90 has four Mounted Greatsword recipes that will hang on a wall.

    Other wall-mountable swords:

    thanks for the ideas Sigrdrifa but the shield goes at the foot end of the sarcophagus and a manikin would show ,
    now the sword goes on top of the sarcophagus so a manikin could be send to it's grave facing down .
    This is a memorial we built on Kaladim , so we are limited by the expansions we have available , even our cash shop is limited
    well we figured we will use some heritage rewards like the bone bladed claymore , but I have seen such awesome looking great swords ( two handed ) in the hero festival , problem is they are rewards you can only buy with Mischeva
    coins and we will not get the clothworks puppets on Stormhold .
    That is why I asked if we could get them for regular hero festival coins .

    Wow that is one awesome room Sigrdrifa .

    I thought I saw somewhere that they were making some stuff available for festival coins on TLE... At any rate, you don't have long to wait!
