    Thank you Kaitheel. If you have outdone yourself like Tinkerfest 2017, NoTD will be outstanding.

    i'm guessing that the free fast travel is what bugged the housing HoF fast travel? none are visable now in housing and leaderboards area.

    for those not on isle of refuge wondering what free fast travel means, open your map on test and click the orange icon in the upper right. it normally costs dbc but is free thus far on IoR and now Test, this perk is most likely restricted to members only, i will test on one of my unpaid accts later as well. :)

    Not sure if it was the free travel or something else, but as Leonitas said, the housing leaderboards are utterly blank with nothing in any category. I went to my tiny crafting house to check, and the house thought it was still published. Publishing and unpublishing did nothing. Housing leaderboards are still displaying nothing.

    Just to be sure this is as-intended - while gravedigging, the stuff that you spawn is no xp. However, if you interact with one of the woken spirits and get it to fight you, then you get xp for that mob?

    ok bug with broken mirror's quest got the spirit to the bar fight after having to guess on the last to memories because no emotes came and it said got them right. then I killed all the bottles in the bar and got her down to 22% and then went around for 10 minutes and 1 healing potion until i gave up and exited the instance to try again. missed one memory but didn't die so clicked on correct memory after that finished memories got her to the bar destroyed all bottles again and she stuck at 22% again. left came in a third time and made no mistakes on the memory. destroyed all the bottles again stuck at 22% on spirit and no end in site to the fight. i'm going to let myself die more later when I finaly do. Dying didn't work same thing as before. character name is Sylvanni she is a woodelf ranger.

    Oh and when you die and revive the choices are outside or inside the haunted mansion clicking on inside haunted mansion sends you to the haunted mansion in Loping Plains when you leave the haunted mansion sends you back to the broken mirror zone. chosing outside haunted mansion puts you back besides the horse.

    Welcome launchpad was blank for me, as well as the leaderboards. Nothing for sale/adverts/nothing in that screen showed up.

    From examining the reward box, the Deadly Terra Widow familiar from the gravedigging has no stats associated with it.

    The revive point if you die in the new Abandoned Mansion sends you to the Haunted Mansion (or something of the sort) ... I'm just the messenger on this one as I've not tackled it yet. I got that from several folks, though, who all then admitted they'd not put in a /bug about it. {steals back virtual cookies that she gave to testers}

    I'm also stuck on Furious Spirit at 23% - Broken Mirrors Quest. So far I've tried it from Freeport with a level 100 bruiser and from Qeynos with a level 100 Conjy. I was able to play around with it more with the conjy since she is geared better and has the pet.

    When I run out of the bar to another room to find the memory to debuff the spirit, I can't keep pet on the spirit, otherwise it locks me in the room with the memory and the spirit and pet are elsewhere in the mansion. Is this intended?

    At 26% (seems to be the mechanic) she returns to the bar and we have to kill spirits trapped in bottles. Twenty-some bottles spawn and once I kill these the Furious Spirit's health goes down to 23%. It makes no difference if I keep pet on her and I kill the bottles or if pet helps me kill the bottles. She only goes down 3% hp for all the bottles.

    I tried keeping pet on the Furious Spirit after I killed all the bottles and running back through the zone to see if I could target anything or find anything more to click on, but there was nothing new. I finally gave up and zoned out.
