    Origin will be updated with Publish 56 at approximately 7:30PM EDT. The server will be taken down for the publish; approximate downtime is 1 hour. Notes after the cut:

    I thought the 2 hour sigel thing ( SP?? I don't do Factions) was for TC only and you were going to make it longer on Production shards... the notes say it's still 2 hours?

    Does Publish 56 include any changes to the Veteran Rewards. We were warned to "wait one more publish" to be able to select deedable w/choice of specific mining carts, potted cactus, and braziers.

    Seems to have missed the notes, but its 4 hours on Origin for corruption, 6 hours for purification.

    Factions is not a simple thing... I hope our friends on Origins test it to the max. Factions is about team work. Warriors, thieves and crafters working together. That is my experience with factions.

    *sighs* I wish I could. We play different games, you and I. I never go to test... I can not test my mettle there. I do not have characters on Origin... It is not my game.

    All of these changes and additions are interesting. I will have no clue how they affect me until it goes live on Siege.

    On Siege, factions is alive. We have different rules, though. Go figure. A thief has to be a thief on Siege. We can not rely on stuff.

    I will tell you faction thieves do matter on Siege. As do warriors and tinkers. We are all heros when we win... It is about the team.

    I hear you Kelmo but our game is not so different that we can't learn from each other. I enjoy faction playing, to the small extent that I do on our shard. Unfortunately another guild did not appreciate our small band of TB and did a mass slaying unless you joined their guild. Factions has not been the same for me since, gone was the nostalgia of accomplishing a purpose.

    With this new aspect of factions having a direct impact I am trying to get with the program and learn more, albeit from the CoM aspect this time *winks* I hope it goes well and opens up another part of the game for some. It has for me but I've not quite got the hang of exactly how I as a player or we as a team are going to be able to drive the spawn in and out of faction towns.

    Being a part of a team. There is nothing more fun. Everyone has a place and a role. Even the faction thieves... Thanks Mythic.

    A player has reported about following issues:

    1) Cakes stack, but no names on them
    2) Arcane gems and smoke bombs before publish don't stack
    3) Granaite stones stay too weigh and don't stack with new ones
    4) Titles of BOBs are messed up
    5) Graphics of Thread of Life/Thought/Fate are all the same. You can recognize them on the pop-up with your mouse on them.
    6) Necro forms before publish are not removed even if the skill amount is short of the required value.
    7) You receive odd message:"my initial water left is ****"(**** is some numbers), when you water plants.

    Cakes have three types of stakking.
    - cakes of normal quality
    - cakes of exceptional quality made with names, but you can see actually no names on them
    - cakes of exceptional quality made without names

    I'd like to ask devs to bring back names to cakes!

    Equippable faction reward is repairable by using crafting skills.
    If it is right, Powder of Perseverance is useless.

    This was an intended change, thank you Sakarrah!

    Gardeners have been desparately asking that the water pitcher button work like the potions buttons and find the water in your pack. Now it does. the message in your journal after you water a plant is telling you how many more doses you have before you have to refill your pitcher.

    This is a great improvement for mass gardeners who raise lots of plants!

    Bump. It would sure be great if there were like one place for all the stuff found on Origin that seems wonkers to be collected in written form.

    Thanks fyi!

    Oh, I knew she was working on it, but didn't know about that telling us how many times we can water plants from pitchers.

    Yes, it is a great improvement for us! Thanks Sakkarah!
