Lamannia Party!

Hey folks! For the next three weeks we are going to be running a community party on Lamannia! From Thursday April 12th, through April 28th we will be having events on Lamannia! You personally can win 250 Turbine Points once a day, just for showing up! That’s right! Every day, for just for coming to Lamannia you can win Turbine Points. If you win every day for a week that is 1750 Turbine Points! Not a bad deal eh?

Why are we doing this? Well, we updated some of the backend of the game, including the physics engine. What does this mean…well…everything will be better of course! But…that also means we need to monitor the performance of these changes with “normal” player behavior. There had to be a catch right?

What we are looking for is anything out of the ordinary, traps not trapping, moving platforms not moving, animations broken on monsters, spells not working or looking weird, bosses not being bossy, and anything else that is out of the ordinary or looks weird when you play YOUR character. These backend systems touch a broad range of features in DDO-the guts of the game so to speak.

So here is how we will be focusing on the feedback:

Every two days we will look at a region. There will be Devs/OCR or QA kobolds around every other day to hand out loot, levels and whatnot to make your questing easier.

So come join us! Have some fun, get some free prizes and hang out with the creators of DDO! Help us get the universe ready for the Forgotten Realms!

So just to be absolutely crystal clear-

I have a 16*250 = 4000 tp incentive to be on everyday on lamannia from the 12th to the 28th to make sure that the game is operating smoothly?

Is there a length of time or some task I need to perform during my time on in order to, in fact, receive the points?

To be clear you have a chance of getting points. There will be multiple winners every day, I have many many codes at my disposal, I plan on having none at the end of the month.
And no, just showing up is all that is required, but we would love it if you did things. Anything really.

Aw great, complete character copy fail >.<

...ok, not quite complete. Copied one as a test - fine. Copied main batch of three - all failed. Copied one more for the last slot to re-try - worked. Pity it was the characters in the middle block that I cared about. :(

I could have SWORN we were told we'd get a character wipe for the event, and when I go to transfer characters it still displays your EPIC fails of not transferring the last batch of characters who had NEVER been on Lamannia! Beginning to smell alot of rat dung in the dev offices!

Events don't start till Thursday, they haven't wiped the server yet.




It is not on Lamannia yet.
We haven't decided if we will auto grant them, or do a mail. Probably a mail so if you are nice and stuff you could give them to your friend, mom or cat if you wanted to.
That is up to kookie and 404. If it is me, you are getting random :)
Sometimes the character copy gets munged and needs a kick in the teeth. We will make sure that happens Thursday when we wipe and update the server.

Is there going to be plans for anouther wipe after this party? Or is this wipe going to be for the 12th only with no future set plans on anouther wipe any time soon? Also is Lamannia going to continue to be up after this party?

Was planning on holding this years Congo Bowl II on Lamannia so any information would be appreciated.

If your not sure what Congo Bowl is you can click on my sig to see what last years event was all about.

I made a guild for DDOcast listeners, fans, and contributors alike. And If I can get the recording right, Sig and I may do some on the spot Lamannia interviews and/or broadcast on Twitch.tv with other players! Maybe even record an episode right on Lamannia! :)

If you're online look for me as Anne (yeah, original character name :P), Theris, Anastaizie, Emmawone, or Annala.

Sig will be on as Gabraizar, Seablade, Kurzun, Valectrix, or Fuzgut!

I'm hoping other DDOcast segment producers will be on as well, such as Ecgric and Rheebus. :)

Well, I knew what I wanted and I was all psyched, especially once I heard that I'd get an opportunity to use the new items (ESOS for my THF Pally!) in the harbor afterward.

I spend an hour spam-clicking to trade with 404error (which seemed like an odd way to do things, but he kept saying that was what he wanted). The end result? After an actual hour (6:30pm to 7:30pm) - not only did he never trade with me, he killed all the characters around him and headed off towards the harbor event.

Needless to say, I didn't go play in the harbor.

What an effective way to sour a player on the game.

/edit: and as you can see from my post count, although I've been playing this game (and paying for this game) for many years, this is the first time something has struck me as so egregious that I wanted to post about it.

Well, once I picked the house to work on, I figured I should stick with it. I guess I'll avoid 404error in the future. I interacted with Kookiekobold last night and it turned out differently - not only did I get a reward but I didn't get killed. Bonus? :)

That thread does not contradict this thread. This thread says "every day", that thread sets up times for Thursday and Friday. It says nothing about there not being anything going on today. Which this thread very distinctly says there will be.

Same. They need to set a schedule for weekdays. Weekends, I get...everyone needs a break. :) All the Devs are aware a planned schedule and take into consideration non-Boston, MA players.

I'm in California for example. I got friends in Australia that try too, and miss out. Somewhat frustrating.

@TorGrimorde: Yeah, that's always an issue when they switch to DST. They always start 2 weeks before europe and most europeans forget that they have to +1 to their usual GMT zone while using DST. It's a bit confusing since nearly every country using GMT switches to DST at the same time and you don't notice this change of time zone switch unless you start a time zone 'conversion' or go to a country using GMT which doesn't switch to DST.

You were kind enough to boost my monk's crafting levels to 150 and raise my guild level to 100, but I didn't get the button on the mailbox to invite the other characters I transferred, who actually wear the slotted gear, into the guild. :p

Is the missing button due to the sudden jump from 2 to 100? I tried porting between K and J where stuff was happening, and then relogged but it did not appear.

For me, this xp bonus boost was an ideal way to look/work out which feats I must use to get my Khyber Ranger into the wanted path of the Arcane Archer.
It turned out that I indeed seem to have to sacrifice a feat there.

I have hit a few stops that seemed "sticky" but I can't reliably reproduce it. Most of my time on Lam right now is playing "hide and seek" with my 4 year-old. He likes running and jumping around the Harbor, the Marketplace and House Cannith. I figure that is still testing things out.

The specific spot I last remember is the top of the 1st set of stairs from the Marketplace in House C...rubber-banded 3 or 4 times like a bugged ladder, but couldn't seem to make it happen all the time.

thats awsome :). My 3yr old once made it out of a tavern in the market, found his way to house K and then the Fens and was killing mobs all on his own. we only stepped away for a minute O_o. and im with you, it's still testing and teaching at the same time :). I think we should get bonuse store points for raising future DDO players to help keep them in buisness :) HAHAHAHAHA.

It was announced Lammania will be closed to the public after the current Patch 2 month-long testing. The assumption is that it will become the close beta-server for MotU. Those that pre-ordered by March 31st are supposed to have access and it is probable that there will be another way for others to get access.

To be clear you have a chance of getting points. There will be multiple winners every day, I have many many codes at my disposal, I plan on having none at the end of the month.
And no, just showing up is all that is required, but we would love it if you did things. Anything really.
Does testing to see if the AFK boot inactive timers are working as intended count as "anything"? :p

ok, so im running tests on a build im trying, and while out in the Cerulean hills every thing was running fine untill i came out of the cave by the :free lady aradell" querst, or whatever her name is. at first i thought i rolled my scoll wheel but when i moved it i realized i was invisible. Not even a shadowy out line, all i am is a longbow running around and when i shoot it stays in the carrying position. mobs can sence me however but when they shoot at me nothing registars, but i can kill them. All very interesting

i was unable to replicate this effect sadly. I went to the quickfoot hideout cave and every thing came back to normal game visuals. i came out of cave and ran over to the small cavern buy the quest, went in and came out and every thing is working normal O_O.

went back a 3rd time after letting things reset. Still no replication after killing every thing in the cave, hmm -_-

any input would be welcome :)but esspecialy if a dev could clerify this for me as well that would be awsome :).

I have a lv20 elf artificer and have taken the arcane archer pestige line as well as battle engineer. Now, arti weapon buffs apply to multiple weapons and even to other toons weapons: examples- insightful damage apply's to "crossbows or one handed melee weapons held by the user. or Deadly weapon "your targets weapons deal and additional..." as per the discriptor for each effect.

Now, the arcane archer buffs apply's only to self as they should, AND, i know that arrow is in the title but, all of the buff discriptions for the arcane archer begin with "Imbues all MISSILES that you fire with..."

so my question is: shouldn't arcane archer imbuements apply to ALL missile types (daggers, axes, stars, xbows, ect...) used by the character and not just arrows, OR, does having ARROW in the title for each effect overide what is said in the accual discription????

i just find this interesting that i can use my arti buffs on my longbows but not my AA buffs on my Xbows (aren't bolt's just shorter and slightly thicker arrows O_o) and so i thought i would put this out for feedback :). thanks in advabce

I'm no Dev but up to this point any account based purchase/status has carried over to Lamannia. I.E. if you are VIP on live your VIP on Lamannia. If your not VIP whatever adventure packs you have purchased on live you have access to on Lamannia. So it stands to reason that if you purchase the Underdark expansion it will be available to you on Lamannia. If you think about it we are still logging into Lamannia with our same account user and password.

*snip* List of content that "needs" checking out


Thank you for the update Maj! Knowing what the populace hasn't hit is nice because now we can make sure to atleast try to get some, if not all, of that content checked out before Lamma closes down.

Also, out of curiosity when we are running the content, specifically quests and raids, how important is it to check each one on each difficulty setting? I assume it may make some difference, but would it be more important to go for frequency over checking each individual setting, if we are under a time constraint.

We ran this on Thursday with the DDOCast guild. Aside from the fact that we ran 3 people short and Velah totally owned us once the reaver trash started coming everything was fine.

The reavers might have been spawning a little faster than on live, but it was tough for me to tell, I was slightly busy at the time

Thanks for the list. Now I know better on what to concentrate on (started evil Assault during the event for both training the live server quest and testing it, because thre are lots of enemies involved).

What is meant with the "pirate challenge" ? Is it "Prove your worth" from 3-Barrel-Cove or is it "Crystal Cove" ?

(By the way, died miserably at the "hands" of a "living spell" in the Subterrane during the last event ... Didn't want to proceed further until I had developed better tactics ...)

Is there any possible way that when you are leveling up a character with xp, crafting xp, and guild level that you could add favor to that. I would love to be able to test out silver flame pots, House D 75% returners, etc without having to grind out all the favor necessary to get them on Lama land. Coin lord and D favor are fairly easy as you only really need 150 but 400 silver flame is kind of a pain to get. Just a request, if the answer is no, then next time I will stock up before I transfer over, would just make testing these out a bit easier.

Thanks, Saal :)

also I went into House C Manufactury area and the lift from blue floor to red floor seems to not be rendering correctly. It does not want to go flush with the blue floor after handle is pulled. Anyone else want to test this out, I am taking the time to write this while instance resets so I can go back in and test again before I submit a bug report :)

Second foray in, lift worked fine so may have been a temporary glitch, will test a few more times :)

Yeah, I've had similar problems -- and I've been hesitant to hit the LFMs because I'm pretty new to the game, and while I would love an opportunity to learn the raids of the game firsthand from the devs, I don't want to burden down other players who just want the darn boot mats.

I just figure with the short time frame, and with my own lack of experience with those quests, that it wasn't an event well suited to someone like me and I would spend my time on LIVE preparing for the expansion and growing my DDO gameplay expeirnce so I might join one of these in the future.

Maybe its best that this event be for the most experienced and prepared people - they're likely to be the ones to notice anything wrong.

Updated: Ran Maraud, Co6 1-4, PoP (summoned cat to pull switches - wish you would go back to the old way where we could run in after pulling), Reaver's Fate (only on normal, I can't solo higher) but I don't have time to run the others (trying to run them during events when the server is loaded).

Well Kookie dropped the boot material req:

(World Broadcast): World broadcast: 'Kookiekobold's raid party has opened up now to everyone! Go ahead and join up if you'd like to run MA and LoB!'

and filled while I was AFK, +404's is still up, but 9 in it and showing IP, or at least inside the quest, and I don't have a Mysterious Artifact, so it's back to live with me, I guess.

I do see a slight problem there : There are high-level quests/raids listed, and I really don't know how big the amount of *experienced* players in that level range is ...

Alright so I installed lamannia(yes it was in a different folder) and when after I log in and you get to the part where you choose the server I get a message that says: Game Error [201] Can't open the data files. Check that they exist and that you have permission to write them. The program will exit now. [201]

What the hell does this mean? I completely reset my computer to factory settings and wiped everything and reinstalled only lamannia and I still got the same message. Please someone help me.

I have a Inspiron 15R touchscreen that uses Windows 8.

You might get better help posting in one of the Service and Support forums versus a two year old thread that has nothing to do with your topic.

Hope you find a resolution.
