    I don't generally wax ecstatic here (I don't generally wax here at all), but a couple things in PUB 78 are AMAZING! They have added slots and capacity to the seed boxes, which will make them actually USEFUL for holding seed sets (one can only hope that they have also made the filling/moving process a bit easier... but you takes what you can gets). AND, it was like the Dev team read my mind (or my post in a thread asking for holiday suggestions). We now have stewards, and I can dress one up and set him on my doorstep to give out candy and goodies on Halloween!! The rest of the PUB seems great too, but THESE? WOO HOO!

    True that they are pulling bless deeds from Cleanup Britannia? I haven't been on Origin to check.

    From what I heard, it's true, sadly.

    Just been told by a friend on Origin that they were indeed pulled. Guess I didn't read the announcements carefully.

    Woo hoo, gotta start warning new/returned people on Atlantic to avoid Despise. They're going to run in there looking for ettins and get murdered. Maybe plant a signpost that says KEEP OUT, "IMPROVED" BY DEVS.

    I never got in the habit of working with them, because it seems like very few years they change up the items - AOS, Imbuing, more dungeon drops, etc. but I'm going to grab a few on my old shard just to have them before the publish hits.

    Or how about a sign that says "Dungeon" on it as if to suggest entering the archway may be life threatening. You know..... In case someone couldn't figure that out......

    The stewards are an interesting addition, though I don't think they go quite far enough. As they are currently, they are little more than a very fancy container, a player version of an EM item dispenser.

    To be truly useful, especially to an RPer, the stewards need to be combined with the bartenders. The ability to use a keyword to hand out items is great, even better that it is one per character, but we need to be able to have the stewards talk via keyword as well. That way they can be used organically in player events, rather than having another NPC directing players to say X to the paralyzed mute in the corner.

    I would like to see the barkeeps get a proper overhaul and some more options. They are terrible to work with currently (especially the UI), even just adding the text and the keywords is dreadful. I know firsthand because I created an entire quest chain using many of them for my alliance not long ago. It was a huge pain.

    No, Flutter... I have never played the Sims, and know nothing about it, and I said Woo Hoo, so apparently Woo Hoo is something I do. With a winking self-deprecation, I would add...

    I help moderate the Bugs forum And I know they are looking into them and that is evident by the posts misk has been making there also just because they are not in OUR list does not mean they are not in THEIR list submitted by players!
