    7 empty shabby chests in 2 days. This was happening before this release, but this is the worst occurrence yet.

    Not to mention drop from new Atlantis maps. Those maps are not worth of our time anymore. And Stalgard is story by it self. 1 hour farming for 2 andermant drops and 3 green items. Looks like they are decreasing drop with every new patch.

    For me this was common before this patch. Ever since the patch that promised no more empty shabby chests (quite some time ago) this has been happening. It seems to go in streaks, fine for a while then a bunch of empties. I do not think it is related to R117 (nor does it seem to be a high priority fix :rolleyes:)

    Luck be with ye,
    Mikey,

    There has been a steady decrease in drops ever since that drop that promised an increase in drops. Inverse mathematics.

    I have a theory on the empty chests. I think that when you click on a chest, the chest randomly choses what it will give you. Problem is that if it selects Knowledge books, it realizes after it has already made the selection that you are LVL 30 on the knowledge tree so the chest apears empty.

    This is only a theory, so can anyone experiencing empty chests chime in with wheather or not you are LVL 30 Knowledge?

    I'm not Knowledge level 30 and I've been getting empty chests for awhile. Best guess I can come up with is:

    A) If you are knowledge level 30 and you open a chest that is supposed to be ancient knowledge, you get nothing.

    B) If your character level exceeds the point where you receive ander from drops from the area (such as me being level 40 and farming Crypt) then if the roll for the chest was supposed to be ander then you'll get nothing as well.

    And yes, I've been getting empty chests since before 117 and I've gotten a number of them after 117.

    Both theories could not be true because when I farm Crypt with level 15 character who is level 18 at knowledge tree ... sometimes I still get nothing from chests.

    Why not make travel stones in all pws too? for example hod? It's so annoying to run through oceans.

    One is there, but for some reason it cannot be used. In any case you can only enter PW dungeons through the one main "door"at Oob, unlike before you could have ported from any urban area and chose whether it was PW or normal.

    What I liked - I liked the theories you presented but in practical I didn't see much difference. I was interested to see the solutions applied to 6v6 red team OP issue, but yeah, 6v6 doesnt happen at Tegans. I like the spirit stones fix, but if i fail to click a dead group mate for reviving the stone gets bugged and doesn't work afterwards. Still appreciate your no damage effort. I like the guild showing groups feature, it is convenient.

    What I disliked - Well there are some things I didn't like such as;
    - Mobs are still invisible
    - Players are invisible as well, and its not even funny at pvp
    - Bugged skill kinda make me uncomfortable while on a pw and specially boss runs
    - Mortis fragments bug

    What I particularly disliked was the female change of stance. I am not prone to changes, given the change is positive. I get it you want to add glamour to female chars and some of us have been asking for a different look than males but, this is not glamorous this is weird. It was embarrassing at first and after a few days I get used to it but still don't like the way she stands and even runs. Perhaps make a slight change so it doesn't look like her waist isn't broken?

    Overall nice patch, hopefully I'll enjoy it more after the bug fixes.

    One of the things I really like about this game is that it doesn't make the female avatars scantily clad like in other games. So, while I do appreciate being able to tell male and female characters apart more easily now, (which has lead to some interesting discoveries, such as my guild master has a female character...) there would have been the far easier solution of making fewer hats that obscured hairdos or the ability to "hide" helmets that would have done the same task with less griefing, since as far as I can tell, hairdos are sufficiently different between genders to differentiate them.

    Cosmetics aside, I do appreciate the addition of the group status to the guild page, although perhaps without breaking the sort feature would have been better. ;)

    Not really sure about 117 yet as I am primarily solo player and non-guild affiliated. I was curious about the hubbub over the female character stance and movements so made an SW and by golly, looks like Kim Kardashian running desperately to the toilet cuz she has to poo. A bit much on the protruding hiney BP?
    Other than that, meh, it is what it is.
    Curious as to why there are amphorae everywhere now, thinking another key purchase enticement coming with "promises" of good stuff but will usually open and leave a turd drop instead ?
