  • Actually, I only do as many fish quests as I want to do at a time then dry dock my ship. I keep my fish stocks at home.  I tend to do beacons in Fel, there are no player boats to dodge there.  As I remember it at least part of the reason harbor mast…

  • I see what you're saying, and I agree I shouldn't put up my prices, but at least I sort of 'earned' the price by obtaining the goods through my own efforts, I'm not piggy backing off someone else's. You'll have gathered by now that I absolutely loa…
  • Inflation has one cause, player greed. players set the prices, not the devs.  I, like Ivenor, play on Europa. I have no problem finding things I want, but then I play to get them rather than buy.   I also have vendors that I stock, but I have to cha…
  • I'm not a pvper, I don't have the temperament for it, but I do spend time in Fel. I mine there, I hunt leather there, I farm fame there, I live there. This month I have 'farmed' around 60 Felucca maps from boxes and chests in Khaldun.  However pvmer…
  • Many years ago, when chat was first added and the trash talk overwhelmed us I suggested this. I was told in no uncertain terms that the pvp players wouldn't use it. They don't do it just to wind up other pvp players, they do it to wind up everyone w…
  • ah. No, I don't use mage armor. I fight with double axes with 81% mana leech instead. @grimbeard. I use both healing and close wounds when fighting paragons, without protection that spell fizzles too much.  This char has been a swordswoman since I …
  • The character I am currently using relatively successfully in Deceit has the following real skills plus 15% chiv on a ring: @Arnold7 what do you mean by 'medaled armor'? I do run with protection cast to be able to cast reliably, but I've no idea w…
  • I usually try to walk wide around any mobs when I'm stealthing, and never, ever walk through one. When revealed they don't usually target straight away and I can usually re-hide before I'm noticed, though I do keep my 'invis, target self' macro hand…
  • I can only speak to what I've observed myself - spamming at 1 minute intervals can be very annoying for others in chat, and when someone actually answers the spam requesting to buy the item/pet and get no answer repeatedly, they become further annoy…
  • What's even stranger is, it doesn't look like that on the female version: 
  • I don't know about you, but I can hear the music my neighbour is playing through the house wall RL. Music is heard, not seen, line of sight is irrelevant. However, I could see a reason for range to be reduced if there is an object, door, wall, betwe…
  • While it is possible to make macros like that, for me, personally, it would be a complete waste of time, because you cancel a running macro whenever you use another. For me, simple one action macros work best.  I've never found the 'smart' target to…
  • Can I get as many drops per hour as better players like Merus and Merlin?  No Can I get enough drops before the end of the event to equip all my characters and help friends equip their's? Yes Am I having fun in the event? Heck yes! So, am I going to…
  • I think I'm lucky to play the shard I do. I've been in the dungeon quite a bit, and what I've seen are lots of individual players racing around killing stuff, helping each other out with the paragons and rezing each other. On Europa this event is FU…
  • Simple question. If you see a warrior on a swampy do you automatically assume said warrior is a sampire?  Because my character riding around Europa on a swampy is not, and neither are many others in this event, she uses healing and chiv. I have alwa…
  • Not my experience. Paragon ram or poison ele spawn when I've been playing the reaction around me is more 'all pile on' than  'every man for himself'.  Not an organised group it's true, but still group play?

  • Thank you, that answers my question very well
  • A question (hopefully a sensible one?)  It's been proven that if you choose 2 'names' you will only get properties from those names, so when using a shadow runic in hope of an elemental, is there a second name to choose that would reduce the chance …
  • I've not tried this myself, yet. A friend has told me that the whip's bleed special is helpful against spectral armor
  • @gay to what 'art files' do you refer? Because although I have created new icons to represent better my macros, I have NEVER altered an art file that appears on the actual playing screen, and I haven't seen any mentioned on this forum that do. Plea…

  • Question re the reindeer topiary. It is shown in the newsletter with a red bow, the version from the santa on test center has a plain, uncoloured bow. Is it meant to be able to be dyed?  I have tried to dye it with a regular tub and with plant dyes,…
  •   In contrast, I made my offer on the Europa forum and my mailbox has remained totally empty, although I have had a few calls in Discord and picked up some bags.

  • Original in Fel, copy in Tram? How the heck did anyone even find out that was possible! It would never occur to me to try to place a house in a dungeon.
