Maybe since 99% of all connection issues are maintenance cleared, and a patch includes maintenance as well.

Woohoo! Thank you :)

Question: will this include Feather's promise about spell focus augments stacking with the enchantment bonus to specific spell focus items?

1st - thank you Cordovan for noticing us some time in advance (3days! ) and for sharing the information that this is 20.1 patch. This has not worked that fine in the past.
2nd - any information already on how much of the lam patch notes do apply as well for the main game servers patch?
3rd - any information on when the new weapon suffix and prefix systems will be made available vor Cannith crafting if ever? Or can we forget Canith crafting at all?

...the crazy crits for energy spells that E TR arcanes are abusing at the moment? This has been good in a way, but when EE's feel like casual epics, it really isn't much fun.

I looked on the Lamania patch page. No where does it mention anything about the song of the dead and song of the makers. These songs still don't work on epic monsters of those types. Thank you for completely ignoring bug reports that have been sent in. And also completely ignoring people that have been asking for even the slightest acknowledgement that there is a problem. How thoroughly did any of the devs or qa people test the song of the dead and makers. I personally tested it pretty thoroughly sent in a very detailed bug report with multiple screen shots. Yet it's still not on the known issue list, or even mentioned. Sorry but i'm not just going to fade away and let the elephant in the room run rampant. Please look into these songs. I miss playing my epic bard and being able to crowd control undead in epic elite content.

Thanks! The U20p1 Lamannia release notes have a bit of U20 stuff still in them, but in regard to the new things in the notes, it is essentially what you'll see some Monday. We are well aware that folks would like to see new recipes in the Cannith Crafting system, but at this time I do not have an ETA on when that system will get additional development attention.

I will look into the status of this bug on Monday, but I am sure that bug reports are not being ignored. I'll look to add this to the Known Issues list pending a fix once I have a better understanding of what the issue is, and its current status, on Monday.

...but I am sure that bug reports are not being ignored. .Seriously? One of many bugs I reported that I still know for sure is not working goes back to the ED system. Echoes of Ancestors Shiradi does not grant any boost to attack speed. When at 0% ranged attack speed shown in my character sheet (no ranged attack speed items equipped), I turn on the stance and still have a big fat 0%. This was reported in the forums as well and nothing. No responses, of course not added to the known bug list... Nothing. -Dance of flowers does not apply to bows even with Zen Archery. Lot's of conflicting reports, but I literally just tested it while typing this and there is no bonus at all for bows. Same character shows a bonus to handwraps.There are other I think are still not working right, like executioners shot, that I simply gave up on and have not tried in a while.So, maybe someone read the bug report, but not having any fixes for years is pretty much ignoring it.

Throw some Astral Shard involvement into cannith crafting and I bet it'll get some attention real fast.. can you sense my bitterness? I'd love to see some of the new prefixes/suffixes for cannith crafting.. WAY more then another fluff display of nonsense or astral shard moneygrab.

i never seem to be able to find the release notes until AFTER the downtime.why do you always say notes will be available DURING the downtime? when they never are.am i looking in the wrong place? i.e. the release notes section.or are they on your facebook page? i dont use facebook. are they on your twitter page? i dont use twitter.i saw something about the notes will have some of lammania stuff but no reference to what.i dont give a hoot about lammania i pay to play on live. that is what i want to know.is this hard to understand?

Music of the dead doesn't work on heroics either i've found, sick ofr submitting reports to go unanswered. It's almost like since most ppl only tr through bard to get towards completionist rather than play them they ignore those of us who do play bards , also bearded devils just have fascinate/enthrall bounce off them now no saves no imune coming up just no effect & i was seriously unhappy at the time delay on song of capering now, makes it unusable in a lot of combat situations

any idea what this means


Players can no longer select Epic Past Life feats during Epic Reincarnation if taking the feat will not give them any benefit. They may still re-incarnate with any sphere without choosing a feat if none are available to them from their selected sphere.

so you can spend an ER heart, and 6million karma, without taking an epic past life feat if it your character cant benefit from the feat, thus wasting all that karma/heart to reincarnate into a sphere that gives no benefit to the character?

How is that even possible when EVERYONE can benefit from ANY of the feats as they all have passive abilities that effect any type of toon? How is if they give no benefit determined?

If I remember correctly, they only stack 3x. So if you've already ER'ed in that sphere 9x, and you ER in that sphere again, for whatever reason, you can't take one of those feats because they don't do you anything. This lets you ER in that sphere again, for whatever reason you'd want to, without having to select a feat.
Not saying I see why you would, but to each their own I guess.

I see you still haven't addressed the issue of shintao and ninja spy monks having to sacrifice their tier 5 enhancements if they want to get void strike (tier 5) in henshin mystic. When will you folks at turbine make void strike a class feat for the monk with the tier 5 enhancement giving a damage increase for henshin mystic. I have a shintao monk and a ninja spy that are not willing to give up their tier 5 enhancements just to get something that they should already have. If you are not going to change void strike, then change the requirements for the light and dark finishers that require void strike to something that can be used by light and dark monks without having to waste 20 enhancement points and sacrificing tier 5 enhancements in the shintao and ninja spy trees.

My guess is, that as you should be earning a fate point for every 4th ER (although not sure this works quite yet), you could keep ER-ing even after getting all the past lifes. Not sure that would work this way, and I have enormous doubts anyone would want to do this, but there you go!

Do you have Turn Undead? Are you a Paladin? What level are you.. This is usually a case of someone getting Divine Might as a paladin at level 2 thinking they can use it with just 2 paladin levels when you actually need 4.

Zaphear,

I am following this build - with some slight changes to feats and stat allocation:

https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/422550-U19-Fighter-Build-Cetus

I have taken thus far 8 levels of Fighter, 2 levels of Paladin, and 4 levels of Monk. I have also spent AP's to get Extra Turning 3 from KotC. As I have the extra turn undead and was not restricted when purchasing the Divine Might AP's, I assume they should work just fine. Cetus' build references just 2 levels of Paladin, and I am certain other people have similar builds as well. I am aware Paladins acquire Turn Undead at level 4, but with the AP's I should currently have 3 "charges" of Divine Might/Turn Undead. If I was not qualified or did not meet the pre-req's then why should I be allowed to take the Enhancement?

After doing some deeper digging it appears as if people using this build take the twist - Bane of Undeath in order to get access to Turn Undead at Epic levels. That being said, should the Extra Turn Undead AP's also grant this ability?

No, you only get turn undead after you hit 4 lvls of Paladin. Its the same with defensive stances, you can bolster them with enhancements even though you don't have them (yet) at that lvl. So you would have to either take more Paladin lvls or indeed twist in the turns to be able to use any boosts that use turn count to work.

The paladin trees are horrible as far as pre-req are concerned. I haven't double checked my math yet looks to me like a build with 3 or less levels of paladin could spend upwards of 31 AP that have 0 effect because they don't have enough levels for the required feats/abilities. (Turn undead, defender stance, remove disease)

Yeah, I remember one of the first Iconics I made (made a paladin/fighter mix), I happily put in the AP, only to find that a lot was wasted. Off course I then also didn't have enough money on that server to reset the trees, made me really love that character! :-O

Extra turning doesn't give turning if you don't have it. bit of a bummer, though since you're already lv 14, i assume you'll make it to 20

Fighter is in the same boat, stance upgrade enhancements can (and most likely need) to be taken long before you get the actual stance, making playing a defender toon even more tedious...

Thank you everyone for the feedback. I was just thinking this could be a bug. The description of the AP is pretty bad and certainly needs clarification. As with any other AP, you should not be able to purchase an ability unless you meet the pre-req. Divine Might is more of a "nice to have" rather than a necessity until Epics.
