    You may not start a new character copy because character copy is disabled for this shard.
    An error has prevented your Character Copy from completing. Please page a Game Master through the Help menu.

    and lot of text changed from "character transfer" to "character transfer or copy"

    Character Copy: This option will allow you to transfer your character to a test center shard without removing the character from this shard.
    Start Character Copy
    Thank you for participating in the character copy program.
    - Items eligible for transfer include your character, everything your character has equipped (both wearing and holding), your backpack, your bank box, all your stabled pets, all your character's pets within the immediate vicinity, and their associated contents. (Temporary "followers," such as hirelings, escorts, and animated dead, will not be transferred.)
    - Please verify the contents of your character's "transfer crate" are correct before initiating the transfer to the new shard. You will not get another opportunity to do so, nor can items be added if you find them missing afterwards.
    - Houses and their secured items will not be transferred.
    - Your affiliations to guilds, factions, and parties will not exist on the new shard.
    - Bracelets of Binding and Balls of Pet Summoning will have their links cleared upon transfer to the new shard.
    - All legacy "house deeds" will be converted into house placement tools.
    - You can cancel transfer at any point during the process, and resume at a later date.
    - You will not be able to log into the destination shard until the transfer is complete.
    - You will have to recreate any custom game macros for that character after the transfer to the new shard.
    - After entering the new shard, you will have 7 days to remove all items from your character's "transfer crate." Any items that remain in the crate after that time will disappear forever. (You can access your transfer crate at any time by choosing the "Open Transfer Crate" option from the context menu on your character.)
    Please select the shard to which you would like this character to be copied. If a shard is currently unavailable for character copy, you will be unable to select it. (If a shard is experiencing temporary downtime, you will not be able to select it until that downtime has ended.)
    Final Confirmation: Your character will be copied from this shard to the selected destination shard. Everything in your character's "transfer crate" will be transferred as well. After the transfer, you will have 7 days to empty your character's "transfer crate." Once this time period has expired and the items have been deleted they cannot be recovered. To accept and initiate the copy, please click "Copy me!" below.
    In order to begin your character transfer or copy, you must be in a safe log-out location (such as an inn or a house which has you on its Owner, Co-owner, or Friends list).
    Character copy has been cancelled.
    Copy me!
    Your character has been copied.

    That's a nice change!!!

    The ability to take an existing character over to Test to see how something I actually play regularly works would be a boon to the testing process.

    Not sure when this goes live, but I have to say, this is a good one. :)
     
  3. First thing this brought to my mind using the Character Copy function is... combining shards.

    Interesting, gargoyles have a virtue system, and are already fighting the void creatures. Ophidians also have a virtue system, and look to be getting a new enemy ... hmm...

    Interesting idea, hopefully it cost the same as xfer tokens, unless some shards are going away then this really sucks. Warhammer did this for the servers they closed. I had to move 3 times when I played that game.

    Good feature. But I'd say that's a poor technical writing to explain this whole thing. The writing should remove all "transfer" wordings, because it would confuse the new players.

    "COPY" is good enough. "Transfer" means transporting from one place to the other!! :bdh:
     
  13. Beer_Cayse

    Beer_Cayse Guest

    Yuh ... as I read this, it could be either situation. To me it's ...

    COPY: End result is the original is still in place but an identical "twin" is elsewhere. Two instances of the same character.

    TRANSFER: Same as a "move" ... the source ends up in a destination and there is only 1 instance of that character - in the new place.

    Sooooo, which is appropriate? Copy or Transfer (move)? At my bank, if I transfer $100 from savings to checking, do I have that $100 in savings AND checking when done? Nope ... savings is $100 less and checking has gained $100.

    Did they seriously use THAT name? Jeebus, better watch out for a lawsuit from NCSoft.

    Ahh, then WotC will sue NCSoft. And if WotC succeeds, they'll probably sue all MMOs that have paladins, mages, druids, barbarians etc etc :D

    WotC?

    No idea what that is.

    Anyway, just found it was a bit too coincidental that they named the new "enemy" after the name of the enemy in Tabula Rasa, which was created by Richard Garriott.

    Coincidence, sure.. But man.. What a coincidence.

    Seeing as how "Bane Invasion" has also been used in some UK television series called The Sarah Jane Adventures, and in Dr. Who, and seeing as how both of those show up as Google results for Bane Invasion well before the other game, and seeing as how when you Google "Bane Invasion" as an exact phrase, this thread already ranks higher than the other game?

    I'd guess EA is safe from lawsuit from NC Soft.

    I wonder what the issue with people using meditation on top of barded swamp dragons was.

    *shrugs*

    I also have discovered that Bane was a character in one of the single-player Ultima games (one I never played).

    Yup, that's the one, sorry was a bit lazy. Bane is the name of an evil deity in the D&D Forgotten Realm setting.

    If NCSoft won a lawsuit for using the name Bane, I can imagine WotC trying to get on the bandwagon and sue every game/novel out there that they can nail for using D&D related stuff like names, class system, experience, levels etc, whatever they think they can get away with :p

    Its been a while since I’ve bothered with the patch contents, but heres some other ones that weren’t posted earlier:

    Map stuff, id guess
    for somewhere in Tokuno Islands
    for somewhere in Ter Mur
    It has been too long since you have decoded this map that you have forgotten the correct location and must decode it again.

    Misc
    This merchant's trinket has been updated

    Upkeep Cost:

    armor points: ~1_val~

    fear essence

    Ophidian and Bane stuff

    Ophidian
    Bane Chosen
    Neutral
    Ophidian loyalty decrease (base): ~1_VAL~ (peril bonus): ~2_val~
    Bane Chosen loyalty decrease (base): ~1_VAL~ (peril bonus): ~2_VAL~
    Ophidian loyalty increase (base): ~1_VAL~ (peril bonus): ~2_VAL~
    Bane Chosen loyalty increase (base): ~1_VAL~ (peril bonus): ~2_VAL~

    If you want to be one of the Chosen, you gotta pull your weight
    Obtain 20 pieces of crystalline blackrock and return for your reward. You can mine for crystalline blackrock in Ter-Mur or you can get it by killing the upper level Ophidians who spawn on the front lines of the battle in this event. The reward for this quest is food for the bane dragon, it is the only known thing that they eat. What are you looking at, you lay about?! You think you can be one of the Chosen? Well, you have to prove yourself and get your own bane dragon! Getting one takes guts and brawn but keeping one takes some of my special stew. I'll give you a bowl of it, but you gotta prove yourself by service to the Bane Chosen. I want twenty pieces of crystalline blackrock in exchange for a bowl of my special dragon food. You can mine for it, if you haven't got anything better to do, but the fastest way to get it is from the cold dead hand of one of those Ophidians out on the front lines.... Now, get to it you wanna-be Chosen! Make yourself useful!
    Where's my crystalline blackrock? Are you serious about getting your own dragon or not?!
    Figures....
    Well... not a bad days work, says I. Here, recruit, now good luck being food for the dragon. I mean... good luck feeding the dragon. Heh, heh.
    Victory to the Ophidians! You have earned a reward for your service! (double click the chest in the Ophidian temple for your reward.)
    Victory to the Bane Chosen! You have earned a reward for your service! (double click the chest in the Bane Chosen camp for your reward.)

    Ya, they copied stuff from origin...... not the other way around. Origin was by far the best creators of stories in RPGs. Ultima7 and the serpents isle was one of the most epic games ever. BTW you can play it for free now.

    Could this be as in "A deviously drawn map" or "ingeniously drawn map" or the like?

    Everything in here sound great... apart from that duel stuff! What we don't need is people hopping into pocket dimension or whatnot for dueling and making fel appear even less populated that it already is. If you want a 1:1 undisturbed, simply meet somewhere out of the way... say Minoc gate. Or gate your duel partner to a small island. Or go into a house. Or just somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

    Its Crystalline Blackrock, its not the same as the blackrock from before.

    BTW, when is this going live? Or is it just stuff that people have dug up??

    Also, Bane Dragon? A new mount from the looks of it. I am glad they're adding mounts, for you know... the gargoyles... rolleyes:

    Other than that I look forward to an event... I miss the shadow lord event.

    Uhm.. Crystalline Blackrock is what you get from mining in Ter Mur, from killing rats in the Abyss and from killing higher level earth elementals. It is not, however, the 'a small piece of blackrock' which comes from mining in the older lands.

    So really all they've done is give us another use for an already valuable imbuing resource...not a use for regular useless blackrock. So the sixty trillion pieces people have saved up.. yeah.. still no use.

    While I am a die hard old school D&D player, I will still say that what you're stating is a matter of perspective.

    Indeed.


    Soo.....uh.....when do they turn this crap on? We had that fabulously great HoC and I don't recall any mention of anything remotely useful in it but I may have missed something. Would be nice to have something to do that I havn't been doing since SA came out.
