    Here are the publish notes for your reading pleasure:

    In addition to assisting to quell the still ongoing unrest throughout Britannia three new ways to gain City Loyalty have been added:
    • Participating in Champ Spawns will award City Loyalty to the City you have chosen to declare citizenship to. The more difficult the level of the champ spawn, the more love you will receive.
    • Turning in BoDs in a Loyalty City will award love to that City depending on the difficulty of the BoD.
      • New Magincia, Minoc, and Yew are proud to announce the opening of new Smithy and/or Clothier shops to serve the needs of the citizens!
      • You may visit the “Sand in Ya Britches Tailor Hut” and “The Sandy Smith” right next to the Modest Damsel Inn located on the Isle of New Magincia.
      • You may visit the “Tinderbox Smithy” and “The Elves Thimble” located within the center of Yew.
      • You may visit the “Survival Threads” clothier in Eastern Minoc.

City Trade Ministers will accept goods across a variety of Professions including, Lumberjacks, Miners, Hunters, Cooks, Fisherman, Archers, Alchemists, Tamers, and Herders.
      • Trade Ministers can be found at the major shipping hubs within each City. These include the Docks in most Cities, Great Oak Vessels in Yew, and the Stables in Minoc.
      • To donate a single item or stack of items drop them into the crate.
      • To donate a bag of items, drop the bag into the crate. A gump will appear with the quantities of each of the item groups you are donating. Make sure to check your donations, as all donations to the City are final!
      • To donate a tamed or herded animal double click the hitching post and target the animal you wish to donate. A confirmation gump will appear making sure you wish to donate that animal.

    I see the line under bug fixes that says, "Sudiva was placed in her permanent home." Has that location been disclosed yet?

    Edited to add: Re-read the winning story and I'm guessing she'll be at the beach in Ilshenar. I hope there will be a permanent passage there on every shard, i.e., that you won't need an EM's help to get there whenever you want to visit.

    Mesanna assured me that she would personally see to it that all shards had the same way to the beach and she would personally put in teleporters to get there so we could visit her.

    Couldn't find him at Skara and Trinsic either.
    I guess they'll only be there after server downtime.

    Thanks, MalagAste. I hope she doesn't forget any of the less populated shards, as is sometimes the case when stuff is manually placed, and that if the teleporters to get in are located in Trammel outside of Ilshenar, that she remembers to put them in Felucca for Siege.

    Aye...

    I'll try to keep an eye out and give her a reminder if anything gets missed. But I have every confidence she's on it.

    Legends had a beautiful golden gate to that beach, in the corral at the gypsy camp south of Compassion, from a battle fought there long ago... folks could go out and see the book installed on the pedestal there, read of heroes of old... the gate is gone.. I sincerely hope that the book is not

    Soooooo, I must have read something wrong, or something did not happen in the publish.....did faction armor/prices/ and use go into effect? I just tried buying some folded steel glasses and even though the menu in game said it would cost me 3k the actual reduction to my silver inventory seemingly cost me 15k!!!!! And I can't even wear them because it says I have to be level 7!!!! Someone please expound or explain as I am beginning to understand what it feels like to be a pig looking at a wrist-watch.

    not sure that's a bug. Login/out never works for pets with items on their packs. They don't auto stable. The message you got was accurate, the pet was teleported outside. When seperated from your followers like that the count re-sets if you give a command.

    How would this not be a bug or least an issue that needs to be addressed. I mean come on, if they remove your pet and then to get it back you have to go look for it that just is stupid.

    Could it be that the Trade Minister on Atlantic is bugged? When i double click him, an Menue opens that says:
    Lumberjacks & Miners Boards & Ingots / Hunters Hides & Leather & Cuts of Ribs / Cooks Backed Bread / Fisherman's Crabs & Lobsters & Fish Steaks / Archers & Bowyers Fletching Tools? / Alchemists normal Potions like Heal, Cure ect. / And the rest can bring all kind of Pets. So i tried to drop Boards into that Crate by the Trade Minister in Yew ... and he says, he don't need my Boards. So how of the Hell he will accept my Boards? Or do i have to choose another City? Which would kinda be bad.


    OK found just out that you have to recall 1 Billion times for 60000 Boards, cause the Trader don't accepts Deeds.

    Hmmm...when I tried it on Origin I was using characters that had some loyalty to the town but hadn't yet declared citizenship and boards of several types were accepted. Has your character that wanted to donate declared citizenship yet for that town?

    Edited to add: I just used an undeclared character to drop regular and spined leather in a town box on Arirang and it worked fine. It was the first time that character had ever done anything for town loyalty.

    I just threw one board of every type in the box in Yew on Atlantic and got a thank you for each one. Never used that character for town loyalty before and she's "undeclared" as far as citizenship goes.

    Just tried it myself, I got a message saying Eric (My llama) was moved to the stables, and right enough, It was in my stables. Maybe the beetle had stuff in it and couldn't be stabled? So this could be a bug.

    Regarding City Loyalty: I've just tested this, and it's exactly 4000 Fish Steaks to get from 0 to Commended (Rank 1) in City Loyalty, which is enough to place a banner (but not purchase one directly yourself, you still need Rank 3 Adored for that). So you can simply head to the docks, buy the Big Fish from the NPC Fisher vendors, cut up each pile of 500 fish and then drop them into the crate nearby. The price varies a little from Fisher to Fisher, and of course you'll be on the respawn timer, but a couple of you working together on reputation and recalling between the docks will probably find this is the easiest way to get to maximum reputation, if you're after the titles...

    New bug:

    In the EC, the Arcane Focus has lost its tooltip. It is not not showing the strength or the time remaining.

    Moving it around your pack doesn't help.

    EDIT: This is only a bug with Pinco's, not the default UI in the EC.
