    Greetings!

    At 5:30PM EST all shards will be brought offline for the release of Publish 65! If you haven't checked out the great features Pub 65 brings be sure to check out the notes below.

    While we anticipate this deployment to only take a couple hours it may require additional time, we'll be sure to update this post in the event of additional downtime being required. Thank you and have fun!

    Why is this happening now and not instead of tomorrow when all the shards do the daily maintenance?

    They do publishs later in the day more and more it seems. maybe they have more staff around later in the day so its easier to spot and deal with any problems that pop up.

    Because it's a much larger publish than normal?

    I'd like to do some whining here. I just happened to be running around with two of my babies in tow when the server went down, dadnabbit! Good thing I'll be around in a couple of hours to get back on and claim them...

    You already downloaded most of the content a week or so ago. It's the servers that are going to require what I expect is a pretty large patch.

    Makes me suspect they are doing hardware/software maintenance too.

    or perhaps adding in something behind the scenes that we aren't supposed to know about

    And now my Kilt on my garg falls off. Wow what a publish. For the love of.....UO.....please tell me this isn't intentional. There's no way an altered Crimson is better than a piece of armor. I thought this patch was meant to HELP gargs.

    Converted the Wizard's Library glasses, but..... the glasses take the earring slot so it is either earrings or the glasses but not both.

    And the Wing armor, if you craft them even with runic kits they are decor only. Anyone know what you can covert into wing armor? Quiver? Cape?

    Edit; Just converted Quiver of infinity into wing armor

    I just added these items to the tailoring info and item database. Cloaks to cloth wing armor (provided they're cloak graphic, not shroud graphic) quivers to leather wing armor. Lieutenant boots to leather talons.

    My gargoyle is a crafter, so doesn't need arties, but crafting in the blue reward cloth made really nice wing armor, sash and half apron.

    I didn't know anything about the new title system until now. In my opinion it sucks. They took away all the titles I worked for and only let me display one at a time. I spent 800,000 points in a cooperative collection but now that title will never get seen.

    Why can't we display the same amount of titles anymore. It makes no sense.

    Being able to select your karma is ridiculous. Now you can lie about your karma.
