    FoF: Summer is around the Corner

    In this Five on Friday we cover Fey Slayers, Zoo Turn in, and Mark spell.

    April 24, 2009

    Will we be seeing the "mark" spell added to any other magic schools other than magery? Currently chivalry can recall, but not mark a rune. It doesn't make too much sense for this to be a missing an integral part of this utility spell's process. I can understand however keeping gate as a defining power of magery, but keeping a skill that can recall unable to mark its own runes is a bit odd to me. Necromancy, Spellweaving, and Mysticism are all without and travel utility. Any love for them?
    Non-mages are able to mark and recall using scrolls, which is a reasonable trade off. However, even with scrolls the intelligence and skill requirements may be a little high for certain classes. We could make a little adjustment so this method can be more viable for non-mages.

    Will there ever be a change or fix with the zoo turn-in and point system? The current system is too limited and there are a ton of tameables, yet the field of what the zoo will accept and the points for the animals are limited and make it almost not warrant an effort to try.
    It is part of our future plans to improve the community collections, and especially the zoo, including as far as tameables that can be turned in as well as incentives to do so.

    Will there ever be a way for reds to be protected at a spawn to get extra scrolls?
    Not likely. Protection is a “reward” for those who observe the Virtue system. Sadly, murderers do not exactly qualify as virtuous.

    Will we have a 2009 cleaning or will you extend the 2008 spring cleaning?
    There currently are no plans for another spring cleaning.

    Is the Fey Slayer (Pixie Swatter) intended to be a slayer for the cu sidhe?
    Yes. The Cu Sidhe is a Fey creature, so the Pixie Swatter is intended to be a slayer for it.

    You guys covered the quivers that were "bugged" a couple FoF ago but what's the deal with the Quivers of Rage?
    There was an issue which allowed some quivers of rage to have higher than intended damage modifiers. While the majority of those have been fixed, there still is a few of them out there with irregular mods. Players should not be purchasing these items. A fix has been written that will reset the existing bugged quivers to the normal damage mods and will be released in the near future.
