    Can a Moderator please clarify this statement?

    Does this mean that the Warlord set bonuses will be 'nerfed'/reduced?

    If so, will this be applied only to new items (obtained after the patch)?

    Or will all our existing Warlord items be changed?

    Or will ne next event feature the new/reduced bonus Warlord set (as was
    done previously with Ammon's and Witch Hunter->Chaser set)?

    R137+138 is online now. When I press "Play Now" in web page, AVG AntiVirus Free blocks one javascript file from game server and shows it is JaveScript Obfuscation (type 1721). I have no idea what's going on. Game still starts.

    When game starts, I resize my Chrome window, it will lose control of game. DSO does not freeze, mouse pointer just can't re-focus on game applet. I have to refresh web page. These are two things to report.

    holy crap !! what didyou do with the DK 2H ?? Have you ever swung a 2H backwards ?? please make this 'alternative attack sequence' at least optional. It's not only looking unnatural, it's also messing up my timing

    All "personal" andermant offers disappeared with the latest patch. Is this planned thing or some sort new bug??

    I would like to guess this is planned but because we all know BP im kinda "fifty - fifty" with this :)

    These are the little purple bag icons that drop down on the left side of the screen. They contain discounts on such things as ander purchases, artifact merchant items, inventory expansions.

    They appear for both accounts and individual characters based on some tracking/marketing code. Since I play many toons on many accounts I get these on a fairly regular basis (btw, some can be a bit annoying. These are the time limited offers for gear and inventory, typically 1 hour. Even if you don't want the offer and close the window the bag will reappear for the duration of of the offer :p)

    To early since patch for me to say whether they have disappeared.

    Luck be with ye,

    EDIT: they have not disappeared. I am currently rolling thru my accounts doing DQs. I just got one for a discount on a specific ander package.

    Overall it seems a decent update, though mostly concerning low-level game content. But one change is really bad IMO:

    The new DK basic attack animation!
    Not only it looks unnatural (yes, I know, DSO chracters are not supposed to look life-like, but still, more realistic movements look better), but it worsens the game experience. With character changing attack direction, it's damn hard to position well against monsters. I wouldn't object, if other character classes had to overcome similar difficulties in game. But as for now, this "challegne" applies only to DK, who is hardly an overpowered class by now. And good positioning is important while tanking (which is the DK's job in party, or at least is supposed to be).

    Some friends of mine claim it also slows down effective attack speed (fps), but having not tested yet by myself, I'm not sure here. But I'm sure of the experience of awkwardness.

    I personally like the new attack animations for the DK basic attack, Angry Strike, which is the one I use. I'm guessing you don't like the Rageful Swing animation? I've been soloing (still looking for a scroll in the event) so much, lately, I haven't seen it yet.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Thanks Mikey

    Now we got same monsters on almost every map in this game. Events as well.
    Same kind of quests AKA "defend this stupid NPC".
    You must be kidding ... very impressive.
    I don't think so.

    Wow ... like someone care.

    That is just awesome. Now everyone can get 20-30 copper coins more. Excellent.

    That is not true. Dragan's missiles are not fixed. and the event is about to end.

    All in all ... remarkable releases.

    Yes, I've meant Rageful Swing, sorry that I did not state it clearly.
    The animation of Angry Strike looks quite decent IMO.

    I saw the Rageful Swing in a video on a different post. It does look awkward. I'll go in-game and switch mine to get a better look, but I'm guessing it will look worse up-close.

    I haven't played DSO for over 2 weeks now and i only comeback today to try out the R138 (played for over 1 hour) and this is what i think of the R138...

    Reworked Swerdfield Pastures - looks better than the old version, but i miss the swamp monsters!!!

    Game Entry Loot - I didn't see or get more/better loot than before, it's exactly the same as before. Virtual currency in my understanding is AM and also i didn't get more than usual, coins drops are the same.
    (Raising the drop-rate of virtual currency by 0.3%, only so you can claim that you have raised it!!! that's so pathetic)

    New Attack Animations - In the DK's case, the new movement is actually slower (around 1/5 of the DK's original attack).
    Instead of creating combo moves, you created movements to slowdown the DK's.
    (Will you ever create an option to swap characters??? this way, I can change from a stupid/retarded DK to a majestic SW)

    As for the Dragan 2 event - Your idea didn't backfire, it did exactly what you expected and that was for the P2P to buy the event.
    Your statement about "backfired" was only to ease the F2P + low P2P class and nothing more, because you had more than enough time to change the outcome, but you didn't...because it's not profitable.

    Well, now it's time to return to my new game, but i will return when the next release comes or the next "backfired" event!!!
    Till then...have fun going down the rabbit hole, wasting many precious hours of your REAL life on a game that shows no respect towards the common player.

    Combination of Errors, More Lags, Excessive Time for Changing Maps.. Go to PvP game freeze, browser refresh kicks you back to main home screen ( need to re-log and waste more time ) .... On Top of the ridiculous errors ... My Anti-Virus Software says you guys are now running an exploitative code in your scripts.
    EDIT ??? .....................................................................................................
    WHY ??? .....................................................................................................

    Same as my previous questions here, i expect no reply, so please, dont rush :)

    There's an ongoing battle between anti-virus companies and online providers. My Norton kicked DSO out several times last year. DSO told me my security settings were too high.
    LOL, like that can happen these days. And with BP's history of hacks and cracks. Ludicrous.

    You guys done good job giving new animations to characters... NICE, AWESOME, COOL, its frikin awesome that how DK now swing in alternative pattern.. yeah i'm going nuts about it.. -_- but wait actually I DON'T CARE ABOUT DK... I HAVE A RANGER... What did you guys do for Rangers... a lame animation... My friend can't even distinguish between both animation and further he asked you have a ranger then what is use of melee attack.... YEAH AT LEAST CHANGE ANIMATION OF 'HUNTING ARROW' OR 'PRECISION SHOT' which ranger use regularly.... furthermore WHAT IS WRONG WITH 'RETURN OF DRAGAN 2' EVENT.. can't get anything.. grinding all day for few pearls... low lvl players got everything by going with high lvl players but i cant even get pumpkin pet till now even though i'm literally grinding all day.... pff...

    I get pop-ups now, browsing this forum. No other sites, just this one.

    That's why you haven't heard my sarcastic EDIT lately:rolleyes:
