    Also EU. Also about 20 minutes from Amsterdam, and not too far from the possible Germany site either (not sure precisely where they keep the servers, but it's likely one or the other based on what I understand). I have also been experiencing massive lag spikes and disconnects in the past few days.

  2. Fygh added a post in a topic RamJamm's Two Irritating Things . Follower quests and Invincible mobs   

    Agree with #1, but #2 I'd add one thing: Other than NPC's where the story would prevent them from following quickly (injured), have NPC's follow at the same speed the player is going. Walking is too slow, but having to run 3 seconds, stop, run 3 seconds, stop, or run backwards, etc. is very annoying and rather quest breaking.

    I'd say fewer pearls or they get more of the (but maybe not all of the, because they already come with unique) normal costume buffs for the same price, because it's effort to craft them.
    They do need more dye slots, at the very least. 3 is ridiculously few, especially when it includes disparate materials in the same dye slot. Thanks for the heads up on the cape. I guess I'll figure out what I want to live with if I ever get the coupon. I have the costume already made and waiting so hopefully more of those coupons go up when I'm active.

    I want this so bad for my DK. Thanks for providing the dyed photo, I was wondering if the skirt thing was going to be undyeable. I am relieved to see that it is dyeable.
    But the coupons aren't going up very often on the MP. Augh!

  5. Fygh added a post in a topic Underwear on market place plz   

    Even if it were allowed to be sold it'd be like pets, value packs or now the equipment tailoring coupon. Very few would be sold because it's not economical to do so.
    Also, I'm a little bit upset about that. I really want an equipment tailoring coupon.

    I live in the Netherlands where they are based for EU and gambling laws are quite strict, moreso than the U.S. I believe. I would have thought they would have researched the gambling laws, or hired a professional to do so before implementing such a system.

    Gosh. Imagine you want a sweater. It's much more convenient to have a sweater than not when it's chilly out, although you certainly don't "need" one. You could get by with extra food and jogging in place and going to sources of heat as needed. Sure, it interferes with your lifeplay, but you could just call it inconvenient. So you go to the lifestore, browsing the sweater section. The sweaters you can by are sweaters by name, but they have holes in them. Big holes. You still have to use your chilly weather coping mechanisms, but maybe a bit less often. But if you buy two of them and turn them in at the register, you get a chance to get a better sweater. One that will have you running for heaters somewhat less often. The best sweater will keep you cosy warm so you almost never have to do any of those inconvenient things like you did before, but again it's just a chance, and you'd have to buy a minimum of 4 crappy sweaters to even have one chance at one good one... but then again you could buy sweater after sweater and never, ever get the cosy one. But you're tired of having to run to sources of heat, jogging in place, and eating up extra food (extra lifeplay costs), and the lifestore doesn't offer the good sweaters directly at all....

    They now show the dye from Merv's, but horses not showing gear when on a wagon is still an issue.
    In the following picture all horses have champrons on. Only 3 show it. I've taken it out and put it back again, but the bug still remains.

    This seems about right. I have 1 T3, 1 T1 and 2 T2 pets and they do not keep up with my kill speed at all if I'm really going at it. I have to stop and wait if I want the loot. With average grind parties it's really awful how much gets left behind.

    So that's what happened. I came back to the game to find my <49 character just standing there mounted, and a >:) in the general chat. Now I wish I'd made note of the name to be sure never to sell to that person.

    RNG with pearl shop items directly is, in my opinion, dramatically more ethically questionable than many of the mechanics in the game that subtly (or not so subtly) steer players to the pearl shop such as lodging, slots, or artisan's memories.
    Even with relatively good luck of going up 1 tier each smashing, it's ~200 euros to get 4 of the cheaper T4 pets.

  12. Fygh added a post in a topic About horse breeding   

    It is generally the case that females are less common than males, and even if a breeder has enough luck and good planning to get 50/50 or more, females get 1 breed per a male's 2 breeds (or 2 and 3 if you count exchanges). Thus I think it works out that people tend to breed females with higher tiers, simply because on a per-breed basis, there are more males.
    There is something called "color theory" but it doesn't work how you might intuit based on real-world genetics. You can breed 2 horses with only white and still get a horse with red and/or black because of the 3 colors, a horse only rolls on 1 of them. If you get a white/white pairing that rolls on white, if the numbers add up to the next tier purebreed white, then it's possible. It is also possible to get any other skin that also has white to the same degree or lesser. Color theory is only useful for determining if you can get a pure breed at all, but doesn't predict which of the many possible outcomes you will get.The "skin" of a horse does have inherent value, but there is a lot of RNG here and no results are pre-determined.

    Magnate Debuff Not Resetting?
    I have apparently reached magnate status yesterday evening, but yet I still seem to have it today despite that it says it resets "every midnight." This is my first experience with this mechanic.
    Is this normal? Is this some other midnight than UTC? Anyone else experience this?

    Their movement is a "slide on magic ice" animation. It's very noisy. Cute when standing still, but if I could transfer the skills of mine to a quieter pet I would do it in a heartbeat.
