    Perhaps maybe we should reserve our judgement until part 2 is released?

    I hope we get those again. Some people were creating unique character names just to get named bones. I got the "Bones of The Chicago Bears" last year.

    The VVV horse should be ressable with bandaids like the old faction horses. Otherwise its just a waste to get them. Ill just use an ethy unless that is changed.

    Just do what I do..don't play it the first year so the second year it's new to you


    And how do you know it's the same carvables and they didn't add new art? If they did is it still recycled?

    Count me in on that, this was one of the things I was most counting on from this publish. Not a PVPer so most of it not even interested in.

    I would have expected to see some EC fixes as well. But all they got in was a hotfix for the dead vvv mount bug? :lol:
