    We are pushing our final server publish to TC1 this evening for Publish 86. We will be putting our a patch and publish to Origin and Izumo the 18th with our new UI!!

    Vice vs Virtue


    We would like to invite all players to come to TC1 Tuesday afternoon any time after 2 pm EST to help the Devs stress test Vice vs Virtue.

    Sign Up & Quitting

    • Players can join Vice vs Virtue by using the “Join Vice vs Virtue” option from the “My Guild” page of the Guild Menu.
    • Clicking “Accept!” from the acceptance gump will enroll players in Vice vs Virtue. While enrolled in Vice vs Virtue players will be open to attack from other VvV players while in a non-consensual PvP facet.
    • All Vice vs Virtue players have [VvV] appended to the end of their name.
    • While enrolled in VvV players will receive messaging when logging in and while logged in informing when battles take place.
    • While enrolled in VvV players will subject to stat loss when killed.
    • Players may quit Vice vs Virtue by selecting the “Resign Vice vs Virtue” option from the “My Guild” page of the Guild Menu.
    • When resigning VvV players will enter a 3 day quitting period. During that 3 day period players will still be attackable by VvV members in non-consensual PvP facets.
    • After the expiration of the 3 day quitting period players will be removed from VvV the next time the player logs in.
    • If a player is removed from a guild while enrolled in VvV they will enter a 3 day quitting period, during which time the player will be flagged as a VvV participant and open to attack while in a non-consensual PvP facet.
    • At the expiration of the 3 day quitting period players will have their VvV participant status removed the next time they log in.
    • A player must fully resign VvV before they can character transfer.




    Battles

    • When at least 2, non-allied VvV players are logged into the game a random Virtue City will be open for battle.
    • When a VvV player enters an active battle region a battle status gump will open indicating their guild’s scoring progression as well as important match updates.
    • At the start of the battle non-VvV players will receive a warning gump indicating that if they do not leave the battle city they will be open to attack.
    • Any non-VvV player entering the city during the battle will receive the same warning gump.
    • VvV players can score points for their guild in a variety of ways:
      • Being the only guild/alliance to occupy the city
      • Killing opposing non-allied VvV players. There is a 5 minute timeout between when a player’s death results in the killer’s guild receiving points.
      • Finding and returning the Sigil
        • The sigil icon at the bottom of the battle status gump will illuminate when the sigil has spawned.
        • A passive detecting hidden check will alert the player when they are near the sigil with a message that, “Their keen senses detect something hidden in the area” if a player has at least 80.0% detecting hidden skill.
        • Players must use detecting hidden and have at least 100.0% stealing to reveal and steal the sigil.
        • Once the sigil has been acquired it can be returned to either the Priest of Vice or Priest of Virtue.
        • The sigil is cursed and can be picked up or stolen by other VvV players.
      • Claiming an Altar
        • When the message, “Fight for the Altar” appears in the battle status gump an arrow will point towards the direction of the altar.
        • Claim the altar by being the only guild/alliance to stand on it and ignite all 4 braziers.
        • If an opposing VvV player steps onto the altar the claiming process resets.
    • VvV players will receive silver points during the match that can be redeemed for a variety of rewards.
    • When any guild’s point status bar is filled or the battle timer ends the battle will conclude.
    • After a short cool down period if at least 2, non-allied VvV players are logged into the game another battle will start.

    Flagging

    • All Vice vs Virtue players will have [VvV] appended to their overhead name.
    • In consensual PvP facets normal highlighting will occur based on notoriety.
    • In non-consensual PvP facets a Vice vs Virtue player will highlight orange to other Vice vs Virtue players except those players that are in the same guild or alliance.
    • Non VvV players that unlawfully attack a VvV player will be flagged as Vice vs Virtue Participants and highlight orange to VvV players. This participation will last until the player is killed by another player, and will be subject to stat loss upon death.
    • Non VvV Players that preform beneficial actions on VvV players while in combat will be flagged as Vice vs Virtue Participants and highlight orange to VvV players.

    Is this a typo? I swore ranged dismount was adjusted from 6 seconds to 8 seconds, while dismount from melee weapons stayed at 10.

    Also, is this all forms of dismount (Infused Throw & Riding Swipe), or just the special labeled "Dismount" ?

    The murder count wipe item is a bad idea -- for the reasoning see every thread ever done about allowing reds to come to Trammel and remain red. Was this notion discussed or brought up earlier and I just missed it? This probably was done to allow PKs to participate in the in-town fights in the new system but I'd think there likely were other ways of accomplishing that. Too late now, I'd guess. The consequences of this will be far-reaching.

    Next Question: The new client, will it replace the EC, the CC, both of them? Or will be supporting 3 clients now?

    I like the murder count wipe. They did the same thing with factions (when they joined, at least) and nothing bad ever came of it, no consequences, etc. The catch was, however, was that it only happens once per character and that if they committed a murder again following the pardon, all their counts returned. I wonder if the pardons here will follow the same guidelines?

    Regarding traders' quests. The notes appear to me to imply that the destination city (that's the actual term used in the notes) gets the reward. I thought that had been changed/fixed so that we actually could help the starting city.

    If we wish to help our own city, the alternative seems to be to run around and find a quest that is to our home city, which strikes me as impractical.

    If I'm reading this wrong please tell me. If I'm not, then *frowns*.

    It's the origin city. Might be a typo when compiling the various versions of the notes from previous TC releases.

    Might be but also I missed something really badly:

    "A deposit of funds will also be made to the origin city’s treasury."

    How I missed that on my first read is anyone's guess. Thank you!

    It's not a new third client. It's a new Default UI for the EC.

    Too many blessed items in the list. I hope these have been altered for Siege. No way to test on the Test Center.

    Same with the Royal Pardons. We don't need them on siege. It will only breed more notos.

    A couple of questions about the VvV rewards:
    Will the artifacts be like faction artifacts? (ie better properties and limitations on use in Tram ruleset)

    Will the hair dye persist if you leave VvV? If not will hair revert to previous special dye color?

    Sounds like the Royal Pardon just nerfed treasure hunters a bit since the Forged pardons are one of the items that makes T-hunting lucrative. I don´t like this addition and I´m not even a treasure hunter.

    The 10 point SoT sounds a bit much and some people will no doubt find a way to farm them. Gonna log on in a bit to see what the rewards cost.

    And for the love of Bo, can we please keep any reward PvP armor/equipment off of Siege. They need to farm/buy/craft armor/equipment just like the rest of us there. No more vending machines for artifacts on Siege please!

    I have a question. With the rollout of the new standard UI will Pinco remain with the company? I can't imagine anyone better to liaise with modders going forward.

    Yeah, there goes the T-Hunters income from Forged Pardons.
    You can bet your ass too that they're gonna find a way to farm Silver Points for 10.0 SoTs. Taming SoTs in particular.

    So.. the marble bar isn't as bad as I imagined it.

    A few quibbles though...

    Could the sink be made into a water source? It'd be nice not to have to have a fugly trough in every house (even if its hidden).

    And the bar sign is aligned with the east or southern side of the tile, meaning it will never look good on a wall (it will float in front of it).

    Edit:

    Here's a pic of the bar pieces. The one with the sink can be turned in all four(!) directions!

    The bar sign is animated with a lantern-like flicker.

    You can dye the Marble bar pieces with a furniture dye tub, except for the sink piece. So two suggestions pls, make them dye-able and have running water like the bath tubs... (although I know it's too late...)

    They ought to work like a water trough... as a water source. Just my opinion and YES they should ALL be dyable.

    Instead of making murder counts able to be cleansed at will, why not just make the Royal Pardons a one time thing for each character. This way they can 'reset' the counts once and the treasure hunter pardons are still useful.

    1) what are the silver costs for the various rewards and how much silver is earned in various ways?

    2) Anti para POT is silly. Unless it's better or different than a tbox it's pointless. Maybe if it prevented the NEXT para or had a duration....

    3)Greater stay potion is pointless also...The fact that you cannot drink other pations for 10 sec means people won't use it. Make it a 1 shot instant 100 stay or whatnot with a timer maybe.... or a set stay regen for a period while still able to chug...

    3) cannons....... how much damage they do. Tell us base dmg before resist or actual dmg after physical resist bc with out that info the number is pointless...

    4) VvV artys have better mods than the real version like factions?

    Devs, please reconsider the royal forged pardon. An item that removes all murder counts? Really? It's going to destroy the market for forged pardons, one of the few consumables in this game that actually has any real value. Please leave this item out.
    Or make it like the old faction reprieve. One time use per characters life.

    The faction murder reprieve was a one time thing per character though. This item sounds like it can be purchased any time. It's going to destroy the market for forged pardons and make yet another useless item from Tchests. =[
    Unless it's a one time only per character, then it's fine.

    I was really hoping that the anniversary gift(s) would be something useful. I'm sorry to say that, as a non-drinker, the bar, towel, and bar sign just don't do a damn thing for me. While I appreciate the fact that we are receiving a gift and someone put time into the gift, I'm really disappointed in the utter uselessness of the gift to 99% of my characters. Feels like a really major lost opportunity to give people something that would make us delighted with Broadsword. Takes a lot of the meaning, for me, out of Broadsword's motto, "Every player. Every day."

    Sorry, guys. This is just really, really disappointing to have waited for this.

    Perhaps we should instead ask what, if any, restrictions come with the forged royal pardons? If they are a one time thing like the faction reprieve (or a variation of it) then it's not too bad at all.

    This is a bug. Two facings of the empty/full versions are not dyeable with the furniture dye tub. We'll fix it!

    @Dot Warner - they partially hue, just the countertop part
    @MalagAste - you can pour water into the sink from a water pitcher.

    All of my old faction horses stayed exactly the same except they can no longer be rezzed without vet. The new mounts can't be rezzed without vet either. (the existing faction mounts were ones I had x-ferred to TC1 prior to Pub 86.3)

    All of the faction gear is 500 silver points.

    The faction mounts are also 500. The Battle Essence is 250.

    The potion kegs are 500.

    The hair dye is 2500.

    The traps are 500.

    The cannon turret is 5000.

    Mana Spike is 2500.

    The 10.0 SoTs are 10,000 as is the Royal Forged Pardon.

    The VvV robes are 5000.

    The banners and tiles are 10,000.

    Wand: Option 1: -15 MW SC-0. Option 2: SC-0 UWBS. Both have 50 Arcane charges.

    Sleeve Slot: DEX4, SI10, HPI5, SR3, 15/6/17/18/18
    Head Slot: HPI5, MR3, DCI4, SDI10, LRC20, 6/6/6/6/25
    Chest Slot: Energy Eater 15, SI10, SR3, STR3, 17/19/18/3/6

    All gear is Antique with 255 durability to start. None of it expires like the current faction gear. All of the bonus mods found on existing faction gear still exists on the new faction gear.

    Oh the new Epaulette is 5 HCI, no other mods.

    They did tell us that the rewards can be...

    VvV / Character bound / Shard bound / Account bound...

    I'm guessing that the Royal Pardon will have some of those attributes ...probably character bound so it's basically a 1 off per character. It also matters how much silver it costs to get a Royal Pardon bc presumably you have to PvP to earn one and it could easily be more efficient to go with forged pardons unless you have a lot of counts.... point is we don't know without details.....

    The tiles and banners are shard bound. The Royal Forge Pardon does not say character or account bound but maybe it does after you buy it. The tiles and banners clearly say shard bound when you highlight them in the menu.

    The details are on TC.

    10k points for the Forged Pardon - You start with 2k, and I earned 1k points from a battle with NO ONE else, and just me capturing altars.

    Since I still dont have 10k points (Been testing since the pub hit) I cant tell you whether the pardon is account/shard or character bound.

    Use the towel to dry your tears. Seriously..the "bar" can be used for other things..use it to make a kitchen sink, its called Imagination! Perhaps next year..they should give out "anti-negativity" pills..
