December 06, 2016 - Frostfell Issues

Unfortunately the art for those four cool mint dishes that we had been waiting to see is still not available. In addition, there is a bug if you try to do O Frostfell Tree out of order. Make sure to get and complete Deepice Dreams and then Special Delivery before you accept and complete O Frostfell Tree, or you may be stuck with a quest that will not complete.

Update 1: The U.S. servers are coming down "shortly" for a patch that could last up to 2 hours. We do not yet know if the above Frostfell issues are part of the patch or not.

Update 2: You may now purchase additional wardrobe slots from the wardrobe tab on your character sheet. The Wardrobe Article has been updated to reflect this fact (and has been belatedly added to the Tradeskill Guides section of the site).

Update 3: The Art department found more issues with the cool mint dishes (teapot, etc.), and the fix may/may not get to us before the weekend. Kaitheel is working on the fix for the O Frostfell Tree now, and I suspect that will be going in later this week as well.

Update 4: I snagged the following clip of the cool mint dishes from a Frostfell crafted group shot posted by Daybreak. While we cannot see these items ingame until further notice, at least you can get a feel for the look of them!

Update 5: Kaitheel has a fix for the "O Frostfell Tree" bugs that will not only prevent you from getting the quest out of sequence, but will also fix those folks who already ended up in a bugged state for that and/or the other quests involving Jarith. We have no ETA yet for the next patch, but it will be mentioned in the patch notes when the fix goes in.

December 05, 2016 - Tomorrow!

On top of Frostfell going live after the patch tomorrow (Tuesday), the following tradeskill items were called out in the patch notes for tomorrow.

  • Twark Teleport Totem now takes you slightly behind Glibnox's platform rather than on top of it.
  • One of the possible spawn locations of chokidai droppings is no longer inaccessible.
  • Far Seas Harvest Technique will now grant a small bonus to rare harvest chance.
  • Characters without the Far Seas Harvest Technique ability will no longer be able to see shadeweave buds.
  • Far Seas Salvager now grants a chance to double salvage.

So why that bold, red text? This means that only level 95+ crafters will be able to see those highly contested Obulus rare nodes. Some folks will utterly adore this change, others will be screaming at the top of their lungs, depending on which side of the crafting line they fall on. (In other words, business as usual, the 5% at each end of the spectrum will make noise, everyone else will just go on with their business. :D) This ability, the Far Seas Harvest Technique, is the top prestige ability in the second tab of your Tradeskill Prestige tree.

December 01, 2016 - Frostfell Starting Early

Due to scheduling issues with the elves, Frostfell is going to start two days earlier than originally planned. The new start date will be December 6, after morning downtime. It will still end on January 5, at 7 am Pacific, as originally scheduled. Enjoy the extra time to celebrate, and keep an eye on Galloping Gargoyles!" for the artwork for those four missing Cool Mint tea-related items. (We have been told the art issue will be resolved, and are just waiting for the art to be pushed to Test when they next do an art patch.)

November 25, 2016 - Kunark Ascending Dailies

From what I have seen in chat channels and on the Daybreak forums, folks are confused about the KA crafting dailies. They work exactly like the ToT dailies do, in that there is one weekly quest with a better reward that resets with the weekly mission timer at midnight Pacific Wednesday night, and seven "dailies" that you can do at your own pace (all at once, one a day, etc) and that each reset in just under seven days after you hand them in. Many of us like to do everything in one huge chunk, instead of coming back every day to do another daily, especially with large alt-armies. Still, it seems to be a hard thing for folks to wrap their minds around, and to track, and I have a rather large spreadsheet to track a lot of things for my couple dozen crafters. :O I would not wish that spreadsheet on anyone else, though, as it is an utter mess! Thankfully Shmogre has come to the rescue with a nice streamlined google document that will let you track gardening goblin, dailies, weekly (Snacky Snacks) as well as ascension scrolls if you have adventuers running amok out there as well. It handily changes color when your timer is up, too! Make a copy if you use google docs or export it to other file formats as needed. Thanks, Shmogre!

November 23, 2016 - Galloping Gargoyles!

It is getting to be that time of year again! Frostfell 2016 is already on the Test server, and while there is still plenty of time to get a preview whipped into shape, I wanted to get as much of it done and out of the way so I could take a bit of a breather without it looming over me. Not only is the eye-candy as done as a few pieces of missing art will allow, but there is also a short story that deals with the new quest from the point of view of the hapless NPC. Without further ado, I give you Frostfell 2016: Galloping Gargoyles!
