Those inclined to celebrate the holiday through crafting will find a new book of recipes full of new house items being sold by Lil’ Boo, the new event merchant, while the returning book and returning items are being sold by Haint.

    Candy Corn Candle when resized large the candle flicker can't be seen.

    All other house items resize and work correct.

    Petamorph Wand works correct.

    Can we get the the no-trade tag on the armor changed to Heirloom?
  4. Kasa Well-Known Member

    Received the two titles Howl Hunter and Haunt Hunter from the Werehunter's Survival Kit and Ghost Hunter's Pack with no problems.

    Thank you SO much for splitting old and new stuff onto separate vendors! <3 <3 <3


    P.S. I am cracking up on how the game pluralizes things when crafting. I just made 2 "Diseased Boneses" and I'm now wondering what's in my pocketses.

    Random question: why is the dead tree (Gray Wastes Oak) made on a chemistry table? Because I missed my fertilizer and killed it?

    I LOVE going back to Splitpaw :D Even if I always get lost. But so many people never knew the zone, it's great to see it back!

    Collections don't seem to give xp or I missed the line.
    "obscuritive"? really? it's a fun word though

    So collection for crunching pumpkins is: Ghost Hunter's Pack (Graveyard dirt, purified candle, spirit banishment sigil, wrought Iron coffin, bundled sage, somborn rock salt)
    Reward: Haunt Hunter title
    Collection for launching pumpkins is: Werehunter's survival kit (dried wolfsbane, instant sunlight cantrip, silver crossbow bolts, silver shackles, circle of protection amulet, olfactory obscuritive lotion, lycan collar, night reapers talisman)
    Reward: Howl Hunter title
    I'm told they already exist and were completed on live


    Could it be possible to allow pumpkin throwing in Myrist by any chance?


    Edit: took me 30ish tries to get the Thieving Hardy on Yavannamire but it was real fast on Leucosia (2nd try). I can confirm that getting the forlorn apparition first doesn't break the other in case some were wondering.

    Forgot to add at Extreme Quality display and two meters distance I can see the flame anything closer I cannot.

    In the Splitpaw zone, you need to kill every mob to get the passages to open. Some may be well hidden, so don't forget to check bats near the ceiling and mobs in small corners.

    Silly hobbitses...

    I hope to test something later tonight or tomorrow m*rning. I am posting here in case someone gets to it before me and is willing to report back on it.

    We need to see what happens to very low levels who try to do this quest. My memory says that the gnolls around the terraporter are aggro, and will force-port them into the wrong Splitpaw instance before they can reach the terraporter (or, just as bad, kill them before they can reach it, depending on how low level they are.)

    just wondering about the new item from Lil' Boo, the Hinged Bookcase of Hate...the description begins "This halfling pantry..." but it is a bookcase of hate? so..:confused:

    i mentored my level 32 templar to level 5, and took off all her armor, etc. to try the Splitpaw quest. I had to avoid some bears, but i had no trouble getting in to the correct instance, even with the gnolls tryin to kill me. Tried it a number of times, both by left-clicking mouse on teleporter and by right-clicking and selecting Enter den.

    (i realize mentoring down to 5 is not really the same as being level 5, but 32 is the lowest i've got on Test)

    "Night of the Barking Dead"

    At level 110: the mobs were easy to 1- or 2-shot, BUT if they got a cast off first, there were a lot of a) interrupts from the gnolls and b) some pretty solid spikes of damage-via-detrimental spells from them. My warden survived handily, but seeing about 1/3 of her health drop in what looked to be a single hit was rather impressive for something that was made of virtual tissue paper.

    At level 12: problem time. The gnolls around the terraporter are level 20 to 25 linked heroic aggro. Before she can click on the terraporter, she's already being teleported to the original intro to Splitpaw instance (A Captive Audience or something like that.) There's no way she'd be able to access the proper quest instance by right-clicking the terraporter unless someone else has come through and cleared. As it currently stands, this would be an issue for anyone level 35-ish or lower -- those gnolls are pretty quick to hit and force-port. (I intentionally used a level 12, since it added another wrinkle to the mix, given that the Splitpaw intro quest was meant for level 20+)

    Thankfully, there's a solid chunk of time before the event goes live so poor Kaitheel to scratch his head and figure out how to address this. :D

    You got luckier than I! They dogpiled on my level 12 so furiously that I couldn't click before they ported me. I didn't try repeated tries as I wanted to give Kaitheel a head's up and see what he has to say before I try more contortions with her.

    I suddenly realized last week that all my folks were now 100+ on Test, and made myself a little newbie. I just level locked her at 12 today for event testing (though I'm pondering going for level 22 instead, long-term)

    That would be the Nightmarish Ceremonial Plate Armor, yes? :-/

    Uwk
    who's been pleading with the devs for YEARS to do something logical with that -- stuff, and finally might have been part of the movement to at least get the No-Value tag removed, so we could Vendor it -- hang on, if it is the NCPA, it probably already is Heirloom. Never mind... :confused:

    Aw, Mum, you're only now noticing that? :D

    As soon as they started auto-pluralizing things, I called over Da Hubster to point rudely at the screen and hiss, "Looks what I made, my prrrecioussss! :D"

    Uwk
