Kyronix Good Evening Lake Austin!
Mesanna Good evening Lake Austin
Mesanna shall we get started
Mesanna Hi Dol
Dol Evening developers!
Dol I have two questions tonight.
Dol First one is for Kyronix.
Dol Kyronix, would you consider adding both Orc masks and helms to the
Dol blackthorn turn ins?
Kyronix We have a list of items that've been requested for Blackthorn's
Kyronix Can certainly add those
Dol Fantastic, looking forward to it!
Dol Second question.
Dol Recently on stratics, there has been requests for global events
Dol which run at all times that the majority of the players can participate at all times
Dol and earn rewards not based on logging in at certain times
Mesanna are you talking about town invasions?
Dol What is the future in terms of plans for global events?
Dol No, not invasions. that is only one of many possibilities though =]
Mesanna We have been putting in events that you can do over and over at any time
Dol But anything from puzzles, or stuff like the old solen events
Mesanna That was a request for the 20th year celebration of past events
Mesanna is that what your talking about
Dol Oh no, I dont mean a repeat of old events, just new ones along that line hehe
Dol I just think the community feels, most major story lore
Dol should be done as a global event
Kyronix It is....
Mesanna always has been
Mesanna unless we ask the EM's for assistance with a global arc
Kyronix In which case those are one off live elements that fit appropriately within the story
Kyronix But the majority of the global lore is driven by content we create
Kyronix I.E....we are in the midst of learning about the Valley of Eodon
Kyronix In the wake of the Time of Legends expansion
Kyronix We heard from people that they didn't want us to drop the new expansion like a hot potato
Kyronix So we are keeping to that and fleshing out the valley and it's history
Kyronix We just finished the interactions with the tribes people
Kyronix In the Valley of One quest
Kyronix Next we are moving into the Myrmidex Threat
Kyronix that Sir Geoffrey eludes too
Kyronix So...ya it's global lore driven by us:)
Dol Well then looks like big stuff is coming
Dol I will be watching =]
Dol With that I am done
Dol thanks for your time!
Mesanna read the news letter coming out
Mesanna it should help
Dol I will thank you
Mesanna welcome have a good evening
Taodkiller Dog ev4ening
Mesanna HI Taodkiller
Taodkiller Dog my question is a confusion on game mechanijncs
TaodkillerDog Could you explain how luck is applied to the loot in a party? Does the high dam dealers luck get applied
Taodkiller Dog Is it random from all party members? Does the # of party members effect the loot.
Taodkiller Dog confused how it works
Mesanna Bleak has this one
Mesanna so yes you are correct its totally random
Taodkiller Dog i understand how luck works just not whose luck it takeS?
Taodkiller Dog any damage dealers?
Taodkiller Dog or just highest
Mesanna it picks a random person in the party each time
Mesanna as long as you are in the party
Mesanna or do you need to be on the top attacker Bleak
Taodkiller Dog oh boy i had that wrong ty
Mesanna one sec
Mesanna just making sure
Mesanna I see your confusion
Mesanna ok
Mesanna so if you are on the top attacker list ie healer damage dealer
Mesanna it picks a random person from there and uses their luck
Mesanna BUT
Mesanna not just your party
Taodkiller Dog how many get top attacker status?
Taodkiller Dog 3 4 5 ?
Mesanna so when Bleak said it was random he means random
Mesanna depends on how many are healing or doing damage
Mesanna hard question to answer
Taodkiller Dog is there any advantage to being grouped for luck?
Mesanna no sir not for luck
Mesanna there is not
Taodkiller Dog k ty
Mesanna Hi Gary
Gary hi
Gary my question deals with runis
Gary runics
Mesanna returning player?
Gary when you use the sturctural fortified fundemental and integral
Gary properties
Gary will there be any change to reflect how loot has changed/
Mesanna umm
Mesanna we have not touched Runics
Mesanna so your question has us a tad confused
Gary the runics work off the old shame loot sytems for properties
Misk so reforging...
Gary can not be repaired and what not
Gary oh damn sorry reforging
Mesanna ok runics had us confused
Mesanna ok we are with you now
Gary my mistake sorry
Gary the 4 addition reforge props that seemingly are useless
Mesanna are you asking if we are going to change the negatives
Gary yes
Gary currently all loot
Gary that is brittle
Gary is 255 durability
Gary and no can not be rerpaired anymore
Mesanna one sec
Gary but runics still work off old system
Mesanna We have had several people ask us this question
Gary k
Mesanna and honestly we can sit down and talk about all the issues brought up
Mesanna but I can't tell you we are changing it right now
Gary of course wanted to bring it up is all ty
Mesanna we would have to do a complete over view of it and reevaluate that systen
Mesanna Thats why we do these
Mesanna thank you
Gary ty
Mesanna have a good evening
Mesanna Hi Bishop
Bishop hi Im asking for updates maybe
Bishop anything new on tailisman properties
Bishop protection and killer
Kyronix We added some for Eodon
Bishop did you determine they are working the way you wanred?
Bishop wanted
Bishop for protection
Bishop and killer
Bishop what the name applies to
Kyronix It's specific to the creature
Bishop so there are no super protections
Bishop like slayers
Mesanna no sir
Bishop k ty vm
Mesanna welcome
Bishop :)
Fortunata Good evening. Can the shard bound stealables from Ararat &Eodon please have a turn in value
Fortunata other than 0 or less than one
Mesanna we can do that
Fortunata ty
Mesanna welcome
Fortunata also why are there times a group does shaowroof and has no drop?
Kyronix The specialty drops are given randomly
Kyronix Even if you don't get the specialty drops
Kyronix The random loot that's generated on the bosses is amongst the best in the game
Kyronix So it's a pretty strong consolation prize, even still the odds for getting drops are relatively high
Kyronix Comparing to other encounters
Fortunata ahh, just a tad disappointed for the effort to get into the encounter
Fortunata ty for answering
Fortunata goodnight
Mesanna Have a good evening
Charmaiye evening all
Mesanna hi Charmaiye

Mesanna hi Bree
Bree Bloodbane Greetings all and thank you for taking the timeto come here this evening
Mesanna our pleasure
Bree Bloodbane I am a returning player and have a question about housing
Mesanna welcome back
Bree Bloodbane Thank you *smiles*
Bree Bloodbane in regards to co-owners specifically
Bree Bloodbane used to be my co-owners could freely unlock and lock things down without problems
Bree Bloodbane but now I have trouble
Bree Bloodbane I can see where this could help with security
Mesanna they can lock and unlock most things other than the items you placed as owner
Bree Bloodbane but between multiple accounts it can cause issue
Bree Bloodbane well I am experiencing
Bree Bloodbane as the non home owner
Bree Bloodbane if i place an item
Bree Bloodbane another non home owner on same account
Bree Bloodbane cannot unlock the item
Bree Bloodbane is this a bug possibly?
Bree Bloodbane sometimes I can unlock it, other times I cannot
Bree Bloodbane mostly i cannot
Mesanna we will have to look into this if you are seeing two different issues
Mesanna random results
Mesanna send me account and house info
Mesanna and I will look into it
Bree Bloodbane Ok, thank you

Mesanna hi Basara
Basara hi
Basara don't get much chance to wear this robe
Basara two questions.
Mesanna you there?
Basara first, my alliance is a pale shade of its former self. The leader hasn't played in 5 years, my guild
Basara master lest 4 years ago under the shadow of stage 4 melanoma, fate unknown
Mesanna ok I can fix the guild but not the alliance
Mesanna by appointing a new GL
Mesanna but you can quit the alliance
Mesanna I can fix the guild though
Mesanna and appoint a new guild master
Mesanna but you guys can vote him out
Basara that would be ok, but of course one of the difficulties will be eventually if we do another alliance
Mesanna like I said you can always quit the alliance
Mesanna once you get an active guild leader
Basara some of the other guilds would eventually have to be fixed. And one guild is a legacy that has
Basara only dead in RL members from where the player passed
Mesanna I can only do it one at a time when its brought to my attention
Mesanna email me the info and we will fix the guild
Basara I'll see what I can dig up on the others. The second question is
Mesanna what is your next question?
Basara Is it safe to put the combination access chest I got in Fairfax the same time as this robe
Basara out in public yet?
Mesanna yes
Basara IIRC there was a bug with it back then'
Mesanna people can guess the combo if you have it out
Basara That reminds me - I still need to get that print framed. forgot about it in my move.
Basara TY
Mesanna have a good evening
Mesanna hi Lake
Lake hello everyone!
Lake I was wondering if the removal of pet spiritual cohesion will be in publish 93 and if swamp dragons are apart of it
Mesanna no
Lake to the publish 93 or both?:eek:
Mesanna sorry no its not going to be in 93
Lake aw =(
Mesanna but we are doing a pet revamp in the near future
Mesanna that will be addressed there
Lake what about the swamp dragon part?:eek:
Mesanna we will do it all at the same time
Mesanna with the pet revamping
Lake sounds great
Lake Have a wonderful evening all
Mesanna we still have not agreed on a final decision yet though
Mesanna you also
Lake I hope you guys will soon:D
Mesanna hi Jahajx
Jahajx Jov Good evening and thank you all for gracing our corner of the Multiverse.
Jahajx Jov My question is in regards to the new skill primers.
Jahajx Jov I have them stacking up and I'm not sure what to do with them.
Jahajx Jov Are you planning on including a combine feature similar to scroll binders?
Mesanna no we have not made any plans for books
Jahajx Jov or perhaps a book shelf storage system similar to the Trancendence, Power and Alacrity books?
Jahajx Jov at very least can they be worth something when thrown away for turn in points?
Mesanna we can add them to the turn ins
Mesanna yep
Mesanna we can do that
Jahajx Jov thank you for that
Mesanna welcome
Jahajx Jov on the subject of turn ins
Jahajx Jov is there any chance that the hay and broken chair daily rares can have a turn in value?
Mesanna those are just the rares not a stealable right?
Jahajx Jov correct
Mesanna we can add them
Jahajx Jov again thank you
Mesanna welcome
Jahajx Jov until next we meet fairwell and safe travels
Mesanna Good evening
