    I like this for the Artisan Festival
    • Reduces the requirement for points needed to advance the tree to the final two tiers.


    Cant wait for Jewelry box.

    2 Taming changes
    • Grizzled Mares can now use advanced pet training.
    • Added cancel option to the advanced pet training menu.

    Wait, Grizzled Mares can be a permanent pet now without using...oh, right...the statue thing XD...but wait, did they ever fix statues from being dispelled? Like I thought Volems could be dispelled by casters at random and such? I wonder if they fixed dispel issues.

    Does it seem to anyone else as if our characters can now "see" mobiles at a further distance than before, at least in the Classic Client? Since the publish this evening, when I log in characters who are in a house with vendors or other NPCs or characters logged out at an inn, on many of them they are getting a longer list of NPCs than before the publish.

    I just noticed the rather glaring errors in the announcement. Please, someone fix it before others less charitable than I notice it.

    It isn't a presidential tweet, after all.

    4 Year – Monster Statuettes that play a sound when locked down and activated within a house,
    • Startos
    7 Year – Enchanted Writing Desk
    • House addon crafting power tool for Inscription that allows up to 500 charges to be stored
    Think that is Stratos and 5000 charges hopefully.

    Well...while we're at it...

    (I hate pointing out others errors because let's face it, no one is perfect)

    Curious as to why they chose 2 different styles for the dates...

    • All players logging into a production shard that are at least 30 days old between December 1, 2017 at 12:01am ET and 12/31/2017 at 11:59pm ET will receive a holiday gift token
    Either December 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017

    OR

    12/01/2017 and 12/31/2017

    But hey....go with both...it's fun that way!


    On a more serious note, thank you for taking the time to figure out what was wrong with the halloween content and fixing it AND extending it...that's awesome.

    We have logged in & found a "named bone knight" in 2 cemeteries called Draxx Dorn's & each collected a bone container with his name, with different hues.
    How does one get a bone container with their own Avatar name on it?
    Do we have to die?
    Or did I misunderstand the "named" bone containers, as being your "own name"?

    Die a few times and skeleton zombies with your name appear in random cemeteries. Kill them and you have a chance to get bones with your name. They come in different "poses" and colors.

    I have one from the last time this event happened. I'd like to make it very clear that I did NOT make the char, just found the container.

    The label reads ''I jumped Mesannas bones''...

    I wonder if her husband created that character as a joke, as that name seems too long, and I don't know if you can even use "Mesanna" in a character's name normally?

    Thank you Mesanna and staff for listening and reacting to the request made at the 20th to reduce the requirements for the tree. It's nice to know that us small shards have a chance now. *hugs*

    @Kyronix The grizzled mare can only be trained to 3 slots. That is very underwhelming considering their starting stats are horrid. I understand they have necro/ss but why not allow them to train to 4 slots at least?

    Lasher and Windrunner should be trainable to 5 as well I think. They are the only pets you have to pay actual money for.

    I really would have preferred they had been ethereals. My stealther's use of her delightful Lasher is sadly limited.

    @Bleak

    Death in the EC is still taking an obscene amount of time between when you actually die and when you can move. Upwards of 30-45 seconds.

    This is just as game stopping as the particle effects issue.

    Please, please fix it!

    +1 - to me this is more of an issue than the particle effects one since it happens EVERY TIME YOU DIE. Also, the more mobs in the area the longer it takes to die.

    Difference there is you can't ride a vollem.

    But I agree that they ought to train at least to 4... 3 is lame, especially for a pet that starts as tissue paper.

    How many Windrunners would they sell if it where a viable mounted pet...? More than a few I am guessing. I would shell out for another. Don't get me wrong I love my Cu's but some options for a mounted pet would truly be nice.

    That will be a gift. Do they test the gifts?

    Make sure you have full load of characters for each shard.

    They have let us play with the gifts in the past. Thank you for the reminder, I have had full characters on all the shards for years just to take advantage of the clickies when the have them as well.
