September 17, 2019 - Another Week ...

... Another round of the Days of Summer quest series has been released. The patch today also worked on labeling the entrance to The Dualitys Vigilant Sanctum for those of us who have multiple versions of it (due largely to three different crafting quests needing it now, along with the one adventuring sig) on the door and cannot figure out which one is which.

September 10, 2019 - A Couple Updates

Week 3 of the Days of Summer 2019 is now active, and the article has been updated with rough locations (items can spawn in an area, not just an exact loc.)

The Prelude 2019 article has been updated as well. The patch today changed the harvest amounts for the sublime pulverulence needed for the Tradeskill Signature "Piercing the Darkness: Carving a Legacy". Instead of harvesting a single pulverulence per pull, you will harvest 6, 12 or 20 per pull. Thanks Kaitheel!

September 07, 2019 - A Word About

Please consider this a semi-grumpy reminder that tester-blaming is bad, k? Do not go down that rabbit hole. There can be many reasons why something goes live that should not, and coming breezing into the /test.test channel going "Whomever tested _____, I hate you" is a sure way to upset the people who sacrifice their playtime to make sure that less bugs make it to the live servers. I do not care if you decide to claim after the fact that you were joking, you are damaging the morale of an often-neglected group of players who are trying to help improve the game. It is adding negativity to their often-frustrating self-appointed tasks. Just do not.

Not everything makes it onto the Test server before it goes live, for a number of reasons (including it not being ready in time to be tested, or a desire for it not to be "spoilered" before it goes live, etc.) The reasons do not matter, really. Even when something DOES make it to Test, not everything will be caught, because there are few of us and many times many of you, and you are quite inventive at finding creative ways to bug things. :P

That is not the point, though. You can go "They should" all day long when talking about the overloaded developers, or those of us who voluntarily test stuff. You can ... but you should not.

Bugs happen, no matter how thoroughly something is tested. Pointing fingers is bad, especially if you had no hand in helping test it. Blaming, especially blaming volunteers only makes those volunteers burn out faster and give up, which then leaves less volunteers and less testing going forward.

September 06, 2019 - Prelude 2019

I will be working on this for several more hours before I sleep, and probably more after I get some sleep. Depending on when you read this, the article may be very bare-bones or may be more detailed, but here you go with the 2019 Prelude Event Preview

September 05, 2019 - New Content Tomorrow!

Surprise! It is time for the expansion prelude event. Normally this has been a single adventuring quest that can be repeated until expansion launch for special event currency. This year is ... a bit different. There will be:

  • 2 level 110 adventure signature quests (permanent content!)
  • 2 level 110 tradeskill signature quests (permanent content!)
  • 3 all level adventure repeatable quests (prelude only)
  • 2 all level tradeskill repeatable quests (prelude only)
  • 1 collection (prelude only)

To make sure there is no confusion, the "prelude only" quests will only be available until the expansion launches.

This content will begin at 12:01 a.m. Pacific on September 6, and I will create an article with more details, screenshots, etc. after I have had time to poke at the tradeskill stuff. (Link in this article is to the official announcement. My article will likely come out tomorrow sometime.)

August 27, 2019 - Days of Summer and More

Days of Summer 2019 quest series has begun to unlock as of the patch today. I am trickling the rest of the images in over the next hour or so, but I wanted to get the page link out there for folks trying to find the quest locations now. Expect the page to change throughout the day as I get the rest of the furniture images done.

In other news -- Barrius (next to Whilhelm in the Anchorage) should now sell the two missing floor tiles (Mischievous and Foolhardy) on any server where all four researchers have completed their research. I think that means every server but Test at this point, but I am not positive. (Test has another twelve days or so to go.)

August 07, 2019 - Signs of Life

I know I have been quiet lately, but I have been trying to recharge my energy a bit before the fall rush (expansion stuff, holiday stuff, etc.) hits. Here are a couple quick updates for you, though:

  1. The Days of Summer panda should be offering something new starting on August 27 (as per Kander on Discord). There will also be a game update that day.
  2. Servers are starting to hit the tail end of the Anchorage research (Thurgadin has finished with Bondrin, who had 1 less recipe to research than the others, and the others are on their final research), so this is a good time to remind folks that once all 4 researchers are done there will only be a single quest offered by Whilhelm every 45 minutes or so. (This was the original timing mentioned to us, and mentioned in my write-up. As far as I know, this will still be the timing when he unlocks after the final research is all done.)

July 18, 2019 - BOOM!

In a few hours, Tinkerfest will go live. There will be lots of things that go "Clank", "Whirr" and "Boom" -- you will be on your own if you want an earth-shattering boom, but there will be exploding clockworks a-plenty in store for you during this annual event. (Reminder: Kaladim will not get much of the event, as they will only have harvestable cogs in Qeynos and Freeport, and a limited-offering vendor in both those cities.)

July 03, 2019 - Tinkerfest on Test

Tinkerfest 2019 hit the Test server today. Here you go with the goodies. You are welcome. :D

July 01, 2019 - Summer Spectacular

No, my aerakyn is not especially grumpy today, she is just modeling the new Flame-Branded Hamadan flying mount that is free for Members for the week. Members can claim theirs from the marketplace only until noon on July 8, so don't delay!

Other goodness for the week include double personal status, double guild status, double currency and a marketplace sale. (And for those who already did their summer ethereal runs before this was turned on at noon today, DBG ran a script that should give you what you missed out on.) You can read more about the event here.

June 26, 2019 - Correction

The article I posted earlier mentioned July 26 for Scorched Sky instead of June 26. Annnnnd, for some reason that totally puzzles the hubbyogre (who does the site coding), I can edit the front page article to correct it, but the correction does not stick. So .. JUNE 26, in a few hours, for the start of Scorched Sky.

June 25, 2019 - Scorched Sky!

Scorched Sky goes live at the start of July 26 (Pacific time). As of the time of this posting, that is less than 10 hours away. This year adds a new quest, another full building block set, an appearance armor set, and a few other house items. The items from last year will return on the vendors as well. The full preview has been up for several days now. A rather rushed video of the new items has also just been loaded onto YouTube. I apologize for the rushed jumble, but I wanted to get something done once the art seemed to be finalized.

June 21, 2019 - Free Familiars

As per the Producer's Letter, there are three free bunny familiars in celebration of Pride. They are available via the in-game Marketplace until July 31.

June 18, 2019 - Shop Quickly!

This was in the patch notes today:

Mage Fulcrum Gearshift, the Concordium Collector, and Scientist Dally Scrumplecog, the Academy of Arcane Science Collector, are back in their respective cities, for a limited time, to exchange Elemental Storm Shreds for items in their stores.

This means that those of you who were caught unprepared by the ending of the long-running Against the Elements prelude event have one final chance to do some shopping. I have no information at this time on how long they will be around, so hurry if you need to shop, and please do spread the word.

June 17, 2019 - Producer's Letter

The Summer 2019 Producer's Letter is now out, with lots of little tidbits of information -- such as free Pride familiars that will be available for just over a month, and a 10-level increase coming with the expansion -- and I recommend that you go read it when you get a chance.

Also, a quick reminder that Oceansfull ends tomorrow night, so get your last-minute shell diving done soon!

June 13, 2019 - Scorched Sky on Test

While most folks are still enjoying the last few days of Oceansfull (ends the night of the 18th), we are already on to the next event on the Test server. Check out the second-annual Scorched Sky event, due to hit the live servers on June 26!

June 13, 2019 - Throwback Thursday

A conversation on the Homeshow channel reminded me of this today, so since Throwback Thursday is a "thing" on parts of the internet, I give you the rather dusty old pics of the Straightjacket of Tradeskilling (taken long before the sites turned much of my hair grey, and the methotrexate caused me to lose a lot of it).

June 05, 2019 - Oceansfull!

This is just a reminder that the 2nd annual Oceansfull Festival begins in a few short hours and runs through the end of the 18th (Pacific time). If you want a closer look at some of the house items pictured in the above preview article, Ocarinah has put together a full preview video of the items. For those who want their eye-candy without all the explanations, she also made a shorter, soundless version. Thanks much!

May 27, 2019 - Quick Water Preview

I am stalling on the long, detailed video of all the new Oceansfull goodies, but I did manage to throw together a quick preview video of the bubble and water effects (Aqueous Temptation and the Moving Water Spray block set.) Enjoy!

May 24, 2019 - Oceansfull and a Quick Note

As promised, I have put together the Oceansfull Preivew. There will be more (video, updated quest tracker) added to it later. Enjoy!

In other news, I found this tidbit on Discord today, and want to get it recorded here as I have already heard folks doing creative paraphrasing, and I want to be sure the original wording is not lost. This is in regards to converting mounts into house items, since there was a question on the new mount that came out in a new bundle today.

Mounts for the most part won't convert going forward. We'll be adding a place to get new mount appearances for homes and guildhalls in the future.
