Cal posted yesterday that the latest publish will probably not be released to the other shards until sometime next week. He's hoping that will be sufficient time to give the publish a good test on Origin. (http://vboards.stratics.com/showpost.php?p=1759764&postcount=28) If you don't currently have a character on Origin and would like to check out this latest publish before it hits your home shard and don't mind spending a little bit of time working up a new character, I have an offer that might interest you. I put together ten sets of gear for newbie mage characters and would like to pass them on to people who don't currently have characters on Origin and would like to build a mage character there to get involved with testing stuff and, of course, play there between new publishes. What I can give you includes a 102% LRC suit with 180 Luck, +20 Magery, 70% physical resist and the remaining resists at 70% or in the mid to high 60's; a full spellbook with at least one useful mod on it (FC 1, FCR 1, or MR 1); a full mysticism spellbook; several city and dungeon runebooks as well as a blank runebook; and a small amount of gold (50k) to get you started on the shard and cover insurance. I'll also be happy to tame you some kind of pet if you want something a little more exotic than a horse (e.g., an ostard, a swamp dragon, a blue beetle, or a fire beetle). I'll also pick some chests and round up some spell channeling mage weapon wands if anyone wants one. Unfortunately, my Origin tailor/smith's imbuing skill is still low (only about 81) and the scribe's at about the same level, so nothing is super-fancy because I just can't make the best stuff yet nor do I have the resources for it either! LOL (Wish I could fill necro spellbooks but they turned out to be beyond my scribe's capabilities.) Anyway, if this is something that interest you, drop me a PM and I'll arrange to meet you in game sometime later today (Thursday). If you want to make a gargoyle character, I'll try making a gargoyle LRC suit for you but no guarantees how wonderful it will be. I learned a few things making 10 elf/human ones but am afraid I still have a lot to learn to perfect the process. I'm also willing to imbue some basic suits for dexxers but really don't know if they would be of interest to anyone. Can't do a whole lot with the imbuing yet and probably don't have the resources to do the mods most people would want on a dexxer's suit.
