    We currently have a copy of Great Lakes on Test Center 1. Hopefully this will make it a little easier to test what we have done in Maginica with the lotto.

    Magincia Plot Lotto

    • There are 22 lots each in both Trammel and Felucca. The island is divided up by North and South end. The North end is the area towards the beach area and these plots are 10K per ticket and you are allowed to buy one ticket per account per plot. The South end is towards the bank and these are 2K a ticket and there are no ticket purchase limits.
    Magincia Planting System

    • Players are able to plant seeds in grassy areas around Magincia by using a hoe. The players will have to maintain the upkeep of the seeds to keep them healthy. Only the owner of the seed can take care of the plant . The plant will be tagged with the owners name and the date he/she planted it. Players will be able to dig up the plants after they have matured and they will continue to keep the player’s name, the date planted and the date harvested. Players can use the blue crystals to magically advance the growth of a plant in Magincia. You will be able to find 2 Gardeners that will see the hoes needed to plant seeds in Magincia.

    Original patch notes stated that you wouldn't be able to parry if carryind a shield an have a throwing weapon equiped. This note now says will will be able to parry...typo or change in plans? Also I thought the problem with reds and magic reflect was that blues would cast on them first and the reflection flagged the red instead of the blue, am I reading the notes wrong, or are they trying to say this is what is getting fixed.

    Just saw the dev notes about parry and throwing, so nevermind. Read on iPhone and I can only see so much.

    Can someone who has access to a TRIAL ACCOUNT please try to buy Magincia tickets on test server ?

    I hope that they made trial accounts not eligible to buy tickets but one never knows.... better test it to make sure...

    Thanks.

    Does anyone have an idea WHY the North plots are priced at 10k per ticket while the south plots are at 2k per ticket ?

    Is there a notable difference between them ? What is it ?

    I would imagine that the proximity to the bank of the South end plots would be a bonus but then, why are they 5 times cheaper per ticket as compared to the North plots ??

    I did and my understanding is that the South plots are a dime a dozen while the North plots are more ViP, more exclusively limited.

    Fine, but WHY is my question ?

    What would be the underlying reasons that make the North plots be more exclusve than the South plots ??

    This is the part I am not getting....... Especially, since the bank (whose proximity I see as an added bonus...) is located near the South plots and not near the North plots...

    So, WHY would the North plots be better than the South plots I wonder ??

    No, no, that's the reality. That's the real explanation.

    Reality is boring.

    I, for one, would much rather go with the rumor I just made up, which is that the more expensive plots will come with a deed that, when redeemed, will either give you the Vine Cord Sandals, a non-replica Lt. Sash, or a new troll-slayer UBWS artifact katana. The katana, it is said, may be used to great effect in the new dungeon, the Lair of the Artifact Troll, located underneath New Magincia.

    Well, do I need to conclude that North plots and South plots are just good the exact same only having the North plots cost 5 times more than the south plots and not be as close to the bank ??

    Really ??

    Last I noticed, Magincia is an island and, while beaches may be only on some locations, if the concern is boats approach well, sea is everywhere.

    I still fail to see what would be so special about the North plots over the South plots.......

    For anyone who is sincerely confused, as R Traveler has pointed out already: A seemingly-unlimited number of the 2k changes can be purchased; the 10k slots you can buy one chance only.

    popps, the south plots will cost alot more than the north plots. Think about it. How many tickets will be sold at 2k each?

    Yes.

    I had guessed that meant that the Publish had made its way off TC and onto Origin, or would in short order, and that they were revised from the TC notes (as they seemingly were).

    Origin does indeed have a new moongate toggle for "New Magincia" (there ya go Galen) and seems to have content live now.

    This should make Morgainne very happy with regard to transfers.

    erg. :/

    And so what ??

    If trial accounts can be positively used to buy tickets you think that limiting 1 purchase per plot per account is any real limitation ??
    Besides, it is per PLOT, not 1 plot per account, but PER PLOT.

    So, even assuming that trial accounts cannot be used (which I still do not know...), each account will STILL be eligible to enter for tickets for ALL North plots....

    I still do not understand, ASIDE FROM THIS TICKET PURCHASE DIFFERENCE, what are the actual differences between the North plots and the South plots, if any.......

    Wait, I see one, the SOUTH plots are conveniently located near the bank.......

    I might make a thread on this in the future but the new quest is going to suck on more populated shards. You can drag the manifestations anywhere, they don't seem to bounce back. I killed two rousers and haven't revealed anything in my area, which lends me to believe there's either a timer or someone already spawned the thing and I'm out of luck.

    Any way I can talk you into putting that on the Publish 70 bugs thread on the Test Center board?

    They are obviously very important to the quest, and presumably to the storyline.

    The team appears to be paying attention to that thread.

    You know a beach, a sandy plot of land. Go ask the DEVS, they did tjhis not us. We are only guessing and you come back with more BLAH BKAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. Who know whys. They did it not us. Send them all your BLAH BKAH BLAH BLAH BLAH in E-Mails. I have no idea why you (Popps) post the way you do, only you know that. So why don't you ask the Devs why, we as players do not have an all knowing crystalball that tells us why the DEVs do the things they do.

    Here is the answer.

    They (DEVs) designed it that way, period. Got a problem with it please feal free to E-Mail us (DEVs) and we will think about it.

    There is your answer.

    Popps why did the DEVs design the housing this way? You know as much as we do.


    DEVs do this just to get Popps going. LOL

    Well the problem i have is i dont know how they are supposed to work...so I can't really say whether it's a bug or not, just seems as if, while I'm trying to find the manifestations on Origin, that this is going to suck for a large group of people. ;/ but I can post there, sure

    I've tested pretty extensively now.

    On the far western "camp" I killed 7 or so Rousers before I got a Void Manifestation to spawn.

    On the next one, the VM spawned after 2 Rousers.

    Next, it was 9 Rouser before the VM.

    and many many more times... all random.

    My conclusion: It's just another RNG thing.

    Thank you.

    If they decide that's how it's supposed to work? Well, then that's a bad idea, but at least we did our duty of informing them. It has got to be a bug, though. If the spawn is so thick when it spawns that you basically have to drag it off, I would suggest the answer is to limit how far it ca be dragged or, better yet, thin out the other spawn once it pops out.

    From what we can tell, and in UO that's one Hell of a qualifier, the "cannot" was the typo, and "can now" is accurate.

    The notes of late have suffered from two very, very bad, dovetailing errors.

    Firstly, there isn't a set convention as to whether the notes should be referred to in the positive or in the negative. (So for example; should this one have said "currently you can't parry with Throwing and a shield, that will be fixed." or "you will now, after this Publish, be able to parry with Throwing and a shield.")

    Secondly they have long-established that proof-reading is not their strong point.

    Put those two together.....

    Thanks :)

    Well I'm just worried it'll be the same old same old and some noob will try to solo it and give up and drag it half way around the abyss. But as long as the spawn isn't tied together and they keep spawning, then that's no problem (but I'm not sure, there).

    Below are some screen shots of the plot lottery gumps on Origin taken within the last 45 minutes or so. One is for Trammel and one is for Fel. Note that Fel Magincia still has blackrock golems wandering around.

    I also noted down the number of tickets purchased for each plot. First number after each plot number is for the Trammel plot, the second number is for the Felucca plot.

    Ha ha, no Felucca sales yet. Wow, quite a few tickets for a shard 5 people live on. Of course the 10 of us on Chessy isn't anything to brag about.

    I'm not about to waste crystals I spent hours gathering to make a plant grow faster until it dies. Especially ones that previously had a much better purpose.

    I'm dumbfounded by this idiotic use for the crystals.

    Bad decisions seem to be this Team's bread and butter.
