    [Kyronix ]: Hello Napa! Thanks for attending tonight! We'll be attending shortly

    [Kyronix ]: In the meantime, please stay tuned for a message from our sponsors...

    [Kyronix ]: Is your house on top of a ratman spawn? Tired of fending your front door from solen invaders?

    [Kyronix ]: Worry no more! Call Bob's Discount Monster Clearing services for all your spawn clearing needs!

    [Kyronix ]: We've had some brown outs here, playing havoc with our connections. Thank you for your patience

    [Mesanna]: hi everyone

    [Kyronix ]: Let's get started!

    [Ancient One]: Greetings once more Mistress of Darkness and Death, of Light and Glory

    [Kyronix ]: Hello!

    [Ancient One]: I wish to thank you first for returning our Sea Dragon to us and now I ask

    [Ancient One]: Regarding the Hag's Assistant Quest, (it is a classic quest that is located South East of the Grove of Love.) of the possible rewards one can get is a A Tattered Treasure Map

    [Ancient One]: (randomly levels 1 - 4).

    [Ancient One]: I ask that this be changed for randomly levels 1-7

    [Ancient One]: If this was done then there would be far more folks doing the classic

    [Kyronix ]: One of my favorites!

    [Ancient One]: quest for the maps and a far more vendors selling
    treasure maps.

    [Ancient One]: thank you

    [Kyronix ]: It's something we can look into, would have to check how that would influence getting level 7s elsewhere, but certainly something we can look into

    [Ancient One]: thank you

    [Kyronix ]: Thanks for the question!

    [Tanager]: me again!

    [Kyronix ]: Hello!

    [Tanager]: First, thanks for all the love on Siege, we appreciate it

    [Tanager]: hugs

    [Tanager]: but a question if i may

    [Kyronix ]: Fire away!

    [Tanager]: Would it be possible to upgrade the arcane circle in NM on Siege (and in Fel eslewhere) to equal the one at britain mint?

    [Tanager]: due to VvV

    [Kyronix ]: To avoid the fights?

    [Tanager]: well so that non vvv can get a focus without gettingin the way of VvV

    [Kyronix ]: It's something we could have to consider all the consequences of

    [Tanager]: nods

    [Kyronix ]: But we will discuss it and way all the pros and cons

    [Tanager]: Thank you :) have a great evening!

    [Kyronix ]: Hello Bimmer!

    [Kyronix ]: Faction silver is all deco at this point

    [Soulreaper]: i left they we good and came back and not so good

    [Mesanna]: sorry

    [Mesanna]: think about how rare it will be in a few years =)

    [Soulreaper]: can you tell me why it happened?

    [Mesanna]: why factions was removed?

    [Soulreaper]: no why the silver coin became non usable

    [Mesanna]: because it was associated with factions only

    [Soulreaper]: compared to silver in a acct

    [Mesanna]: we have not made any other use of it

    [Soulreaper]: oh i thought silver was still a usable thing just not coins

    [Mesanna]: no sir its not

    [Soulreaper]: ok ty

    [Mesanna]: welcome

    [Ronan]: Hi

    [Mesanna]: hi

    [Kyronix ]: Good Evening!

    [Ronan]: I know some party loot changes were made last year, i think
    [Ronan]: but would it be possible to opt out of party loot while still in it, as if you weren't in a party?

    [Mesanna]: we can look into it but why be in a party in the first place then?

    [Mesanna]: sorry a little confused

    [Ronan]: for the bard buffs

    [Ronan]: they work on pets now

    [Mesanna]: little one sided isn't it then?

    [Ronan]: and for some ec benefits, like target lowest party members health

    [Ronan]: well we party to get in some things

    [Ronan]: and have to break party in the instance to get our own loot

    [Mesanna]: we can look into it yes

    [Ronan]: okay

    [Ronan]: is it possible to add stamina, mana bars to pet bars? and maybe buffs?

    [Mesanna]: Bleak with answer that one

    [Bleak]: I will look into adding this for the EC

    [Ronan]: okay, ty

    [Ronan]: are there 4 slot turtle hatchlings like some greaters?

    [Bleak]: Yes

    [Ronan]: oh, wow, okay

    [Ronan]: is it possible to change the word of death ai on pets to use it when pets are only low on health?

    [Mesanna]: last question

    [Mesanna]: one sec

    [Mesanna]: let us discuss it further and we will let you know

    [Mesanna]: it would have to be across the board

    [Ronan]: yeah

    [Mesanna]: so we need to think about this more and talk it out

    [Ronan]: okay

    [Ronan]: is the party filter in use in ec? the chat? err private chat?

    [Ronan]: sorry last one

    [Mesanna]: umm

    [Mesanna]: we were confused there

    [Ronan]: yeah, meant private chat filter

    [Mesanna]: you do mean a chat channel right

    [Mesanna]: there are no filters in those

    [Ronan]: okay, might look at it again and email

    [Ronan]: thank you for your time and patience

    [Mesanna]: sounds good

    [Mesanna]: welcome

    [Mesanna]: hi

    [Milk]: Thank you all for all the work you do

    [Mesanna]: thank you

    [Milk]: vendor searching on most shards can be a ghost town due to the extremely high daily fee for item

    [Milk]: is it possible to reduce the vendor feeds for vendors on less populated shards?

    [Milk]: to help revitalize local shard economies?

    [Mesanna]: we can't do that sorry

    [Milk]: :) had to ask

    [Mesanna]: I know

    [Mesanna]: this has come up before

    [Milk]: its rough going to atlantic to buy something someone our home shard is selling there

    [Milk]: but on that note i say... i would buy back all my time...from when i was inactive~

    [Mesanna]: lol

    [Mesanna]: we understand

    [Milk]: thank you :)

    [Mesanna]: its a very popular request

    [Mesanna]: we will talk about it more

    [Milk]: have a great night

    [Mesanna]: you also

    [Cotton Candy]: Hello

    [Mesanna]: hi

    [Kyronix ]: Good evening!

    [Cotton Candy]: My lion will not gain in healing

    [Mesanna]: you sure it has it

    [Cotton Candy]: yes

    [Mesanna]: we would have to see it

    [Cotton Candy]: keeps going down not up

    [Cotton Candy]: It is on GL

    [Mesanna]: ahh

    [Mesanna]: send me your info and I will look at it tomorrow if you are around

    [Cotton Candy]: has a 120 healing scroll too

    [Mesanna]: but it has to have the healing ai

    [Mesanna]: hi

    [Balmoral]: I aplogise if this has been asked before

    [Balmoral]: Whats up with the super fast insane mob mage AI

    [Mesanna]: can you be a bit more specific

    [Mesanna]: which mob, where etc.

    [Balmoral]: any magic monster casts with superior speed

    [Balmoral]: they will 3, 4 5 spell you before you run past them

    [Mesanna]: thats a bit fast if thats what you are seeing

    [Mesanna]: they do cast faster

    [Balmoral]: as if they have no FC FCR restrictions

    [Mesanna]: but should not cast that fast

    [Mesanna]: we will look into it but you should give us some examples

    [Balmoral]: I would just ask you to look into it, I am adapting, but it makes some places too dangerous to get to

    [Mesanna]: what places and mobs though

    [Misk]: need more specifics

    [Balmoral]: some champs, running past a group of goblin mages

    [Balmoral]: you'll have 3 cast 2 spells on you as you run by

    [Mesanna]: ok we will look into it

    [Balmoral]: ok, thank you

    [Mesanna]: night

    [Pawain]: Thank you for your time my Queen

    [Mesanna]: hi

    [Pawain]: I have a simple request to make my hunting life easier

    [Pawain]: would you allow us to double click gold stacks or arrows on corpses to gain those items

    [Mesanna]: use the EC client and right click lol

    [Pawain]: It makes me queasy

    [Mesanna]: the EC?

    [Pawain]: and makes my eyes hurt

    [Mesanna]: ahh

    [Pawain]: Yes my Queen

    [Mesanna]: I use the classic also

    [Mesanna]: just between us =)

    [Pawain]: then you see it would make our lives easier

    [Pawain]: That is all My Queen Thank You all

    [Mesanna]: so you want to dbl click on the items in the corpse

    [Pawain]: yes start with gold and stackables

    [Mesanna]: Classic is going to be almost impossible to do that to

    [Mesanna]: EC was much easier

    [Mesanna]: so I highly doubt it

    [Pawain]: ok Good evening

    [Mesanna]: good evening

    [Mesanna]: hi Tarzan

    [tarzan]: hello!

    [tarzan]: thanks for taking the time

    [tarzan]: first, have you given any thought to adding a transmogrify system to the game?

    [tarzan]: I would love to be able to change the look of certain items to better match my armor set

    [tarzan]: not altering the armor type or properties, but just the way it looks

    [Kyronix ]: We implemented that in Blackthorn's Dungeon, admittedly it needs a major update, but a crafting

    [Kyronix ]: based system was not something we could of easily done, hence the Blackthorn's Dungeon approach

    [tarzan]: thank you

    [tarzan]: last question

    [tarzan]: any plans to add more pets that could have armor applied to them, like the swamps dragons?

    [tarzan]: since all the warriors run around looking the same with the swampy

    [Mesanna]: we talked about saddles etc but right now our efforts are in a different direction

    [tarzan]: ok, thank you for your time :)

    [Mesanna]: thank you good evening

    [Lavender]: Hello.

    [Mesanna]: hi

    [Lavender]: Sorry to be so last minute with my question. The spawn speeds slowed down a lot. Is there any way we could make a system so the person who pops the spawn can speed it up? Similar to "bumping" the spawn up a level but instead creatures spawn at a faster rate. I'm a warrior, not a necro so the new spawn speed really slows me down! I believe it was done because some

    [Mesanna]: which spawns

    [Lavender]: Sorry.... champion spawns

    [Mesanna]: there were capped because of the lag players were having

    [Mesanna]: if we increase it we are going to get the same complaints


    [Lavender]: I just didn't know if we could find a way to "choose" the speed

    [Lavender]: Like when we use valor to bump it

    [Mesanna]: interesting idea

    [Mesanna]: we would have to discuss this

    [Lavender]: That way people could choose Thank you

    [Mesanna]: welcome

    [Mesanna]: Thank you Napa for joining us this evening

    [Kyronix ]: Thank you Napa! Have a wonderful evining!

    [Misk]: yes, thank you for having us

    [Bleak]: Thanks for coming out!

    [Mesanna]: Questions that were not answered will be addressed in the newsletter

    [Mesanna]: make sure you look for it

    [Mesanna]: good night
