My Elf has just been ruined...

    Not impressed!

    Fighting in the Primeval Lich spawn, die, then when I rez, for some reason my strength is halved. Ok, "bug" I think...

    ...so I log out/in only to find it's switched my strength for my dexterity, now I can't wear my armour (strength only 24 now!).

    Paged a GM.... let's see how long this takes... not a happy bunny! :yell:

    Anyone else had something exciting like this happen to them?

    Could you please infer more detail? IE, Shard, What you were wearing, Stats, Faction Status and what time during the shard? (IE Server up/down etc)

    Hope the GM fixes it, We were on Europa when it happened.

    Tried relogging again, came back in and now strength has changed to 62... which is still wrong, but can't wear 30 strength armour item.... :coco:

    Salivern_Diago - Shard was Europa about 30 minutes ago down in the Primeval Lich. This character isn't factions, is an elf and stats were about:

    115 STR
    25 DEX
    115 INT

    (Max 255 with +25 scroll used*

    I've got items on my suit which raise some of the stats, like tamer/lore mask of Travesty, imbued jewellery, etc...

    Can't see it being a bug with the items I wear, but you never know.

    Now my stats "show" as

    24 STR
    119 DEX
    112 INT

    ...completely baffled and hope the GM will reset them to what they were.

    makes mental note don't die on elven characters.

    Whew good thing i herd about this hate to have my dex of 10 switch to my str.
  8. Wowzer seems to be alot of new bugs poping up lately..wonder what is causing all these problems? Makes you think the should keep publishs on Origin alittle longer to catch some of these or go back to Test center mirroring a production shard since some seem to not have appeared til the publishs went live..For sure makes me wish they didnt lay of the Q&A team.. :(

    One of the GM's on Europa looked into it for me and did the best he could. Even tried to reset the stats, but couldn't get it to work... so a very "strange" problem.

    I'm doing a more detailed bug report and sending it, the GM is sending his notes to the devs too. Let's see what happens from there.

    In the meantime, my tamer/mage is broken and I can't use him. :sad4:

    I'll update with news of any further help they offer me to fix the problem though.
  10. Evlar

    I do agree in general, especially with some of the enhanced client bugs.

    This time though, neither myself or the GM who tried to help, have ever seen something like this happen. Trust me to trip over a "rare" or "unique" bug/problem with one of the characters I use the most though...

    When I say rare/unique... I really, really hope that nobody else stumbles across it in all honesty, because there's no telling yet how long it will take them to reset my stats, or if they can at all.

    well you might be in a no win situation, if they can not reproduce it, you are screwed, best advise I can give right now, start planning/saving/buying stat and power scrolls now with your other characters. soulstone off skills, clean out bank box, give it a few weeks to see if EAMythic can fix it, if not, delete and work them up again.

    lol How does something like that happen.
    It doesn't even make sense.

    Can you change the stats via normal gameplay?

    Not suggesting you should per se, but if they will move (in any way) it's a solution of sorts if the devs can't fix it too soon, if I rememer rightly STR is a secondary stat for at least some spells - so pointing dex down and str up and spamming invis (or somethig like that) over and over might get you back quicker than aything.
  14. Evlar

    Evlar Guest

    Well, I'm thinking leave the character alone for a week or so and see if the devs can come up with the solution.

    If they can't, then I'm thinking I'll use a race change token (I've a few of these fortunately), change him from Elf to Human and then flip-flop skills to get the stats corrected myself.

    Reading between the lines, it just seems there's a lot of problems at the moment with non-human races. Perhaps I'm fortunate, but I've never had skill or stat issues with any of my human characters.

    And I'm not the only one that's baffled by how it could happen either :coco:

    Yeah, that's horrible. It doesn't surprise me that any GM couldn't help.

    Hope everything works out!
  17. I had something similar lately on my elf archer, also on Europe but it was my own doing... I wanted a bit more int and less str so I set str to down and int to up and went hunting happily. I used to gain stats in pingponging low level skills but decided I'd do that later and hunt balrons first. I forgot changing the str/int and about half an hour later my str went from 110 to 64 and I was suddenly a lot smarter. I was surprised that even with all my skills locked my stats changed so fast. I kept an eye on it from then and changed them back to what I intended, just can't remember stats changing so quickly.

    Raise your anatomy
    Create an anatomy macro which checks the anatomy of your horse or something
    Do that every 1.25s...

    5 mins your back at 115 STR....

    You probably had dex up str down by accident and the stats skyrocketed (or fell down) pretty fast.

    I was training Parry one day and while doing it I was adjusting my stats. I set intelligence down and dex up (was missing 1 dex) but instead of getting that 1 dex I lost 10 intelligence, gained 10 dex. This happened 3 times in a timespan of like 5 seconds. Something similar might've happened to you.

    I "fixed" the problem by setting int up dex down and grinding the stats back :)

    My girlfriend has done this before. she had the arrows pointing down for str and up for dex, and didn't notice her STR was going down until one day she was at 40. She just had to rebuild it the opposite way..

    I think what the latter two posters have seen happen is a possibility, although they were locked at the time, which makes it more confusing, especially as all the stats were altered completely and instantly upon resurrection.

    Anyhow, rather than wait, I can at least change my stats myself again now. So, I've now restored them to their former glory. Fingers crossed it doesn't happen again though lol.
