Would love a head's up

    As I sit here getting plants on my last 9 characters, I would love a head's up from the dev team on the upcoming expansion, like am I totally wasting my time and these plants won't get the new materials, that information would be real nice, cause I would be doing the CD line on all of them instead if it's a total waste of time.

    Such information usually is subject to change at the drop of a hat, any hat, until the expansion hits. They likely won't give you a response because of this, as they've been burnt before when they said they "want" to do something, only to have something cause that to change before expansion launch. (Folks suddenly scream "You promised!" and stuff like that, even when it was just an individual developer desire, not a "we WILL do this".)

    By now, they know the broad outline of what they're going to do in a few months with the expansion, and have the bigger details discussed, but smaller details, like whether a crafting plant gets updated or not won't get finalized for a bit. Even once the beta hits (which I'd guess is well over a month away, and probably more like 2 months away), the small (to them) details like that will be likely to change without warning.

    I'd say that if you're going to be doing a lot of crafting in the next few months, the plants from KA, and the autonomous harvesting update to the pony from PoP would be handy -- whether you need a farm of 9 of them or not is up to you. For myself, "most" of mine of Test have both their garden and their fully upgraded pony, but not all of them, because some of them only get logged in every month or two to make something for the others. :D

    +1 to all this and it would also be nice to know if Raffik will be getting an update for Amalgamations as well as the Pack Pony becoming relevant during non-holiday times.

    The only info that has been released is that we ARE doing an expansion and it will have a 10 level cap increase.

    Thank you for responding. I will try to fit it in before November. I am not an unsatisfied customer, as I always get a response from you guys, and things fixed. I might not like it every single time, but understand the thought behind it. 3 or 4 months is a good chunk of time to tweak things on the next expansion, so I can understand that. Thank you also for my harvest cloak back, no idea when I destroyed or sold it, but I really appreciate getting that back!

    ....wouldn't it be exciting if after [account] completes / accumulates [x+1] number of harvesty plants, that a new "feature" is unlocked, and there's now a 42 percent chance the plant becomes aggro (carnivorous) and attacks / eats you?
    ...likewise with in-house depots.. they turn into a strongbox mimic and ommnom nom nom..

    But if eaten, you are granted a 2hr +10% to rare harvest buff.

    Sounds like a great Bristlebane Day gag. Your house plant eats you when you try to collect your harvests, Bristlebane shows up and has a good laugh then rewards you with a buff.

    Would kind of present that element of danger like the forge of death that you could save yourself from as opposed to the mobs in the PoP tradeskill sig line where you could not in any way save yourself if you aggro'd them.

    Back when I ran paper and pencil d&d, my players quickly learned to never make suggestions. My imagination was quite enough as it is.

    We love Gninja, he just appears randomly in threads, even ones we don't think he would ever visit like the Look and Feel thread, that shook Ttobey up when he paid a visit in there.
