  2. All the new Faction items are suspicious to me, since I haven't seen any and don't do Factions. I don't even know one server birth rare from another. I suspect the GM's are going to be VERY busy chasing ghosts.

    wow, not to be an ass but EA needs to get some real QA to test stuff like this before a publish is released.

    can't wait for SA to come out...
    it gonna be AOS all over again, with you guys handing out 'I survived the release of SA' clothing...

    Yeah, given their track record of springing into action when we report illegal activity in the game, I'm sure they'll be right on top of it. rolleyes:

    I'm glad it made its way to the site....One thing they should work on is better linking of the site to the patch screen. The fewer people have excuses for not knowing things, the better.

    This message appears the log in screen, so I went shopping. The only "odd" things I see are unusual blood tiles and a demon skull. Anyone have any idea what we're looking for so that we don't waste the GMs or our own time?

    Thanks, interesting read. As for a new wave of duping, I'm very suspicious that there is one. On Chessie, we have one vendor I bought a crimson from that restocked immediately, so I pooled money and bought another one. It also was immediately restocked. I've seen at least 10 come/ go from the same vendor in the past few days, along with at least 4 crystaline rings. After reporting the same 4 player vendors every day for aboout 6 weeks and seeeing absolutley nothing done during the last wave of duped hammers/ fletching kits - I'm sad to report I had finally given up. Maybe it's time to begin a paging rampage again, we'll see if repsonses are any better this go-round. Again thanks for the link!

    Well if that doesn't beat all I don't know what does. I paged the GMs for assistance regarding this issue, and after the now normal lengthy wait am now informed they don't know what I'm talking about. And of course the response was the canned little dot thingy. Guess they're not interestred. Good lord.
