    Greg why on forum still we have not priv msg?
    In netiquette is wrote that in priv msg we can write all what we want and... where it is? Here is option something like this in profile, but mods don't let ppl wrote there freely even msgs are not rude.
    Why we can't use names others games in DISCUSSION?
    Please, show me, rule that i can;t use name of game in chat on forum's profile, not in posts.
    I wrote here cos I want answer from bp directly, not from ppl who are only workers on forum and don't like send questions like those to bp.

    Private messages can be exploited far too easily. Focus of a forum should be expression of ideas in an open format. A private message is contrary to that ideology.

    Hi, I have a few questions.

    1) Why is chanse for geting block rate and damage reduction, lower after 139 release and why does shield need to have critical damage, critical hit value and damage on it? Ranger have benifit form this and other classes but tank does not.

    2) Can you please lower the cost for craft to something reasnoble like 30 gold? 100 gold is a lot of melt gone to waste if item after craft turn out to be bad and there is always a higher chanse for that.

    3) Can we get quest reward, travel map for Gnob on other event's except Curse of the Black Knight's?

    Map 1 and Map 2 have been around a long time.
    There are ways to get past Map 1 and into Map 2 with little difficulty. If they did make a Travel stone there I would be amazed. Doubt I will ever be amazed though. This would be a good TWITCH question.

    Dear Dracaty and Greg,

    Here are my questions;

    Will the increase to level 50 feature items/gear upgradeable to
    Lv55 or Lv60?

    Will the very high number of glyphs required, prevent us
    from upgrading our existing items to lv 55\60, or will
    the Developers change the system to help?

    Do items created on a workbench have the same chance of good
    stats as those dropped in a dungeon?

    Will the Dragon Priest and Dragon Idol at the far end of Stalgard
    ever be given a quest?

    I find that logical to not be able to just skip part of the parallel world map, so I don't see the problem with this at all mate, sorry.
  16. MegaNuker

    MegaNuker Forum Ambassador

    Map 1 and map 2 are not part of the parallel world. In fact it was created to be a precursor to the parallel world.

    Parallel means a same version since there is only 1 ocean of bones and 1 hall of the dead they are not parallel.

    Yes , gear will be upradeable for lv 55-----that was allready answered ;)

    With respect to the high upgrade costs, they have started addressing that with the newest uniques. Consider these two pictures.
    This as about 5 times less glyphs to upgrade, so I'm hoping they are thinking forward so that these newly introduced uniques are not rendered immediately obsolete by the LVL 50 cap increase... We can only hope they do likewise with future uniques and maybe even retroactively apply it to current ones.

    Question #1:

    Would it be possible to look into how the balance of the game would be effected; if allowing us to sell to the trade vendor (the vendor that comes up with the default key "t".)

    Question #2:

    Maybe an item for one day (between the Daily rewards) that would allow us to melt items in the field. Can be sold for anderment.

    Hey folks!

    Sorry for the rather longer absence - the workload has been really intense - and unfortunately my colleague Dracaty has been on a (well deserved) time off. We try our best to be also present in the forums - but you need to understand that usually our priority is to provide the admins and other external informer with information, since they can spread it to all languages - we the CMs are only the originators of information: Live Streams, Guides, Notes, FAQs, Social Media Entries, Planning of content and crowd sourcing (here for example we are collecting info about new skills)

    Daily Achievements
    Lots of players complained about the daily achievements - you get a lousy 25 silver for crafting an item when it costs you way mroe to even craft an item - this will be changed soon.

    Gathering of Player Feedback
    We are paying attention to feedback - but we cannot promise to fulfill everyone's wishes. We use collective methods and not individual
    ones. The game is translated to 22 languages and has over 25 million registered accounts, with feedback pouring in from Facebook, support channels, forums, twitter etc. Do you honestly think that 2 CMs can fulfill each and everyone's wish? Nope, we gather information
    collectively - with the help of our great admins (also because we do not speak all languages;) - we analyze the feedback and pass it on for production:)

    Guaranteed Drop with Bosses

    Funny that you mention that - when we looked at the plans or better say 'improvements' for 2015 this was one of the topics.
    So many players complain about NO drop or White drops. Our producer acknowledged that this is an issue. So we are looking into way to create some sort of - minimum criteria - that has to drop when defeating a certain enemy. Because nothing is more frustrating than killing a boss, spending 20min or longer on it and leaving the fight empty handed or with worthless items. The problem is officially acknowledged and it will be worked on - I have not heard concrete methods though. I reckon it will be a rework of the loot lists.

    We also discussed that players should have a method to get items from events that they have missed - I mean, as special as it is
    to be the only one with a certain pet/emote after a while. Its a shame because we have such a broad selection. At least you should be given an opportunity to CHOOSE which item you wanna go after.

    Lion/Tiger Mounts
    Yes these are planned new mounts as you can see - one user (with an obvious young french accent) has made the effort to discover them. Not sure yet where and how we will use them - but as usual you either get them with and event or a quest or in a shop. I could tell you now that they will be part of an event and 2 weeks after the team decides to introduce them with Gnob. So lets stay with, yes they are new epic mounts for now:) but thats nothing - a lot is coming (why else do you think i can barely make it to the forum:p)

    Private Messaging in Forum
    @MegaNuker pretty much summed it up - its too risky and allows players to trade accounts or trick others.

    Editing the CM post / no other games can be mentioned
    The forum, is - as mentioned before - not my main habitat - its the kingdom of the mods/admins:p
    I am merely their informer. Even we "mighty" CMs can be edited. I mean, personally, I don't mind mentioning other games.
    We all know that there is competition out there - but if it's the BO policy and again - we CM's don't rule the forums - we read
    them - collect info etc. Mods post our info and thus they also edit the info:)

    Travelstone to Halls of Dead
    Im under the impression that our level designers did this on purpose - as it was a game design decision
    however, I can suggest it.

    Dropchance of Guilded Clovers
    The chance is really low - i heard the testers also mentioning that.
    There are currently no plans to increase them. According to game design the jesters and NPC Zumpe are simply
    a fun side activity that players should spent their time on - not a main attraction.
    Some currencies are simply meant to be super rare - it increases the prestige factor of certain items.

    Travel Maps to Gnob
    No, currently there are no other ways to get the travel item to Gnobs cave
    and it will remain an event ONLY item for now. I suppose that when Dragan's story is over
    you will get a different method to acquire them.

    More info coming soon:)
    Thank you for posting guys & girls!
