    You actually post a very good question. I have had occasion in the past year to page a GM a couple times and not one time did I actually get a real relivent/valid reply.

    By the quality of the canned responses, we are probably getting tossed into a wait que, and then based on a keyword search, sent a canned reply.

    Has anyone actually gotten a GM's help in the last 12 months to an issue they had? I would like to know what a GM will actauul reply to and fix.

    Edit: now that I think about it, A GM did move a stuck Navrey for me, but did not reply to me at all, or give a heads up, just plopped Navrey right on top of us, Thanks.

    I believe there was a post from a year or two ago about how GM's wouldn't help on moving spawn. I believe it was around the time that the Vanguard Controllers had spread to other towns other than Cove and the warhorses were getting stuck under buildings. The GM's at least some of them would move the horse if you were unable to get to it to tame it, but they wouldn't respond to people when things like the the Swoop or Irk became stuck on the wall.

    Impressive, one actually pulled you to where he was? The last time I was paged on for unattended macroing, no GM showed up, he just spoke to me in red lettering in the bottom left hand corner, like a system message.

    The only GM Responce ive gotten in the past 12 Months was..

    *Im a PvPer* I was building a Scribe Chiv mage (For remove curse ect ect) only to realize, Reds cannot have Positive karma (My mage is red) For some reason this made me pretty mad so i paged "Question" With something like..

    "Why cant reds have Positive karma!? Just cause your a Murderer doesnt mean you cant have a Good side"

    Took about an hour and i got into about a 20 Minute Conversation about how i could replace chiv with Necro.. And how Chiv only needed 60 Skill to be effective, Where as Necro Requires 2 Skills with at least 40/100..

    I was glad for the responce, but looking back its like.. "Wow, you respond to something as trivial as that, but you cant respond to reason X"

    GMs I think are not allowed to change any spawn or move them - exception may be the ones the developers ask them to.

    Gms can kill you though they should not - they can ress you but most are not allowed to normally - exception seems to be when they killed you :p

    GMs can not replace items/pets, except if they deleted them and sometimes not even then

    Can I ask where the goblin renowned was? Since I've not failed to clear the spawn completely. I will admit I was using a tamer, not a dexer though. Looting the ones that spawn in the rocks at the top can be a little tricky, but possible.

    That is very interesting indeed! I paged to have the renown moved at the goblin spawn. 10 minutes later they were moved and I got a message saying the moms had been moved. I started killing the renown and poof it went back to the spot that it cannot be killed by a melee template so I paged again and the renown was moved again. I would list the name of the GM but all I remember is that thye name started with the letter K. Not that it matters but this was on Pacific and this was yesterday March 16th.
