Very cool!
It's nice to see some of the more obscure things tucked in Xen'drik's dark and hidden corners come to light :D

Consider it a mystery ;)
The Sultar Drow tribes are VERY reclusive. To see them 'out and about' (so to speak) is very mysterious and concerning :D

Have to wonder... if Adaxus was a fire giant, why does his Axe really need to give him improved fire resistance as well.

That is true, but then again after I posted, I wondered if it was something he ended up embuning in the axe on his death just for story flavor.

If it was a last moment of life thing... that is pretty hardcore. If I were dying I'ld be too distracted by the dying to make a magic item. ;)

How about letting people know it won't be coming out in June, as your Splash Screen says, but rather in the second week of July?

Hey! If they list it's coming in JUNE, then it's coming in JUNE!
(Whispers) It's WHAT date now?!

Err, nevermind.

(Coming in June...2008)

In an earlier post elsewhere on the forums, Quarion said it would be the week of July 9th . You can expect 4.2 then.

It picked it up from him because he used it a lot. You know, the good ol' fantasy literary device where just by being in the presence of someone really powerful for a long time something becomes magical, especially picking up traits similar to the wielder.

Either that or he needed it because he was the worst fire giant ever.

Um is it me or is it July 9th already? ANd no posted plan for an update, or maybe there was but i missedit.....? I mean shouldn't it be easier to see and stuff since there is gonna be a down time I assume for the update, whenever it comes.

In other related events we had another crummy loot and xp weekend which further encourages skipping of content and mindless repititious powergaming....

The best plan for us now is to assume that DDO will never ever be updated again EXCEPT for Nerfs every month or so. In that way we will be pleasantly surprised for the next update. No use in looking forward to something it will just get delayed.

Delayed.

Sadly, yes. QA testing turned up some issues, so Update 4.2 will now be next week.

Excellent post! Perfect proof of the old adage, "If you look hard enough for problems, you will always find them."

Why do they bother to put a date on the splash screen. It seems like they always miss the date and people get upset. Just post what it is instead..4.2 coming soon.

It's been two months on a really rather blah update. No real content to it and it's taken two months. How long is it going to take for the 5.0 to come out? I think they over extended themselves programming now for two games and I'm afraid it's going to sink both ships. I'm not leaving, I just wish they would keep us more in the loop.

I've never bad mouthed turbine and I usually stand behind them when **** hits the fan, update go awry or whatever. I know how it is to develop large applications. But I want to express a bit of concern over this game's management. Really it has slipped, it seems, and we haven't heard anything for a long time now. The scheduled update is fast approaching a month behind. The content "amount" for this update seems significantly less then previous updates and the recent 'technology upgrade' has had an overall negative impact, for me at least. I can't help but wonder if we're stepping into the last days of this game. Really, I love playing this game, and hope this isn't the case. But I can't help but wonder...

Last I heard it was supposed to be this week sometime. This is not to say it won't be pushed back AGAIN, but that was the last that the "customer service reps" let us know. I keep looking for something solid, it just has not happened.

Now I dont know the history here other than 3 paragraphs worth but a couple things come to mind on this.

1. Do we know that Adaxus was a fire giant himself?:confused:

2. Maybe he was such an incredibly powerfull Fire Giant that it was for the Axe's protection to keep it from bursting into flames when he held it, and the Improved resist just happens to cary over to the wielder from its own self preservation?:eek:

Anyone else see a problem with the LFM panel
I can no longer see what is the class of each party member already in a group.

Strange :confused:

I think this is only applying to people who are anonymous while in a group with an LFM. Not sure if this is intended or a bug, but I know there have been complaints about blind tells being sent to anonymous clerics who got "caught" in an LFM.
