  • I can speak from experience as a moderator on Stratics that it is a thankless job.   Do not underestimate the non-sense that forum moderators have to tolerate behind the scenes with nasty PMs, obtrusive personalities, and always having to deal with …

  • Weren't the Yukio's glasses already offered twice in the last two years including the Counterfeit Commodities event that was super easy to get drops?  Are there none reasonably priced available?  We need more unique items, not repeats.
  • Mayhem Hail and well met!  Considering Sunday is the end of the holiday weekend and will be quite busy, would it make more sense to do your first meeting after the elections in early to mid December?  I think there will be more motivation for turn…
  • OK - so not the biggest or best decorated - but maybe the coolest location! Within the Moonglow Graveyard in Trammel on Atlantic - passed on from generation to generation of Pendragon's - welcome to The Tomb of the Dead! Location and coordi…
  • In consideration that this is a Fall Dynamic Event and this post is still stickied... I figured its fair game to post some results here.    So far I have run a fortune potion on three separate occasions with my sampire.  Before eating the potion, I …

  • There is a problem when one single short-duration event will produce three items that will be "best-in-slot" and make thousands of other items in those slots instantly inferior.  The Mempo is one of the strongest items that has ever been relea…
  • Bok would benefit from lower splinter so more mods could be imbued - OR - including some randomization to the elemental damage done. 
  • Been doing some more testing on the spawn...Friday night - 14 drops in about 1.5 hoursSaturday night - 8 drops in an hourSunday afternoon - 6 drops in hour fifteen This is using a high end sampire with 250 luck.  Mainly playing on plains of of Isamu…
  • One thing that's good about this discussion being led by Kyronix is that he knows what's what and who's who.  I had the pleasure of meeting him at the 20th anniversary party and we had a laugh about the topic of forum trolls.  He was clear…
  • keven2002 said: I can see the argument on the mempo being OP but I don't think the gloves are that OP given they have -30 Necro. I actually think it's a very smart thing the Devs did with this item to make it a best in slot type item while a…

  • Kyronix said: There's a lot of back and forth on some items being to OP, while others are saying they are right on, while others are asking for additional properties.  That's usually a good sign we are right where want to be. Finally down…
  • My understanding has been that luck had diminishing returns somewhere in the range of 2000-2400 (confirm?).    Having said that, when you try to maximize luck on your suit, you inevitably give up other stats and mods that you could have used to be …
  • Vesper on ATL also did not have anyone run  this cycle (I was governor there last term).  
  • I concur with Yoshi:  Reversing the effects of a charge back can takes weeks, if not months, of back and forth with EA to get accounts restored .. and there is no guarantee that they will.   Contacting support or emailing Mesanna is best course of …
  • SnakePersn said: I mostly play a tamer or a fisher, never really got into melee. My first ever character has been sitting idle for years. I think I last played her pretty shortly after AOS and then switched to mostly taming. I am pretty sure …
  • Grimbeard said: Again tram town buffs should not work in fel... Yes they should.  
  • Leave the election process as is.   We do not want or need “one vote for one account”.   It is a bad suggestion that will only decrease involvement in the elections and cross shard participation.   I currently have 40 accounts and voted more…
  • It's just a rounding issue.   I see no reason to add vote count.  Having only the percentage adds a 'fog of war' factor that makes the elections more interesting.   I see no need to change any part of the election system. 
  • No changes to current system please.  Trading votes across shard promotes relationships that would otherwise not exist.   This should be kept in place.

  • There is an option to turn off spell text from appearing overhead (atleast in EC).  Can be a pain in the butt to do in PVP sometimes when you want to see what's being casted without necessarily the constant spawning, but helpful for EM events where …
