WHAT?!

You mean the patch where the Divine Sphere gets a major epic overhaul?!

I've been keeping a close eye on Divine Crusader and I still don't see an Epic Moment for the destiny.

Is DC even ready yet?

The epic moment for DC is "Zeal" or "Wrath". Whatever they ended up calling it. :)

That's an autogrant at level 5 now, not a tier 6 epic moment like other epic destinies get.

I know Lamm Land has had multiple paths so far. Will this patch have the Akami fix? I uninstalled DDO after the last Mod came out. Would like to re-install and play.

It does. A matter of fact I do not have Akamai installed on my computer and I just updated Lammania to the latest version. You may have to uninstal Akamai after updating but you should be ok then.

The whole thing is a moment. Once you've got it fully developed, you can literally stand there and watch everything around you die. 100k hp non-red? Yeah, it's gonna take 1k every 3 seconds without you lifting a finger. You could probably even be invis and have that aura do its thing. And it's not like every destiny has something like Fury and LD do. Really, who actually uses the Sentinal moment, or the Draconic moment?

Will this UD21 patch 1 fix any of the freeze/lockup/booting issues currently being expeirenced by many players when in public areas or trying to enter a wilderness/quest/public areas?
Or the massive amount of lag on Wayfider server ,that by all rights, should have the LEAST lag of any server in the game due to its very low population?

Ahhhmmmm, I do. I find it really helpful on occasions in raids when Lay on Hands (from the US ED, not the paladin ability) or Rejuvenating Cocoon, just isn't going to be enough and hps are starting to get a little low. Particularly if I'm tanking the fat dragon in Fire in Thunder Peak on EH - yeah, yeah, you are probably meant to kite it, but he can stand with it for a while when it is buffed (as long as someone keeps the trash off me).

I guess I probably wouldn't need the moment if my self healing was better, but he's a first life straight fighter, so he is 'gimped' in some players' eyes.

Either Wayfinder got the eldest server or this is due to having virtual servers where you pay for the load generated and Wayfinder havng a too big a population *cough* for the bandwidth and load they pay for :). Would like to know though, what they pay for with Wayfinder ;).

This!

I have yet to be in a full party that didn't lag wipe in Thunder Peak! You get 2 groups of skellies and a spawn of bats and we all lock up while they beat the snot out of us.

I do really like the area, I wish they would just tone down the spawns or whatever so the system doesn't get overwhelmed.

*edit: I changed haunted halls to thunder peak (my bad)

yea ive ran it once so far... and barley made it out..Had to summon a repair shop int he hall befor dragon cause so many deaths in group. but the lag was just incredible... Couldnt do anything but drop blade barriers and hop around hoping i didnt die.. you couldnt aim.. NO CHANCE of getting a accurate Rune arm blast off... and heal your self....pleeeeease not befor you swarmed by lag and mobs.

and lets fix that rare thing in thunderholme.. Killed a rare today by my self...... yea im proud ima arti that was alot of work!... anyways didnt get any ingots.. was real disapointed.

Well first, epic moment isn't mandatory for an ED to be efficient or to contain some helpful twist. Draconic is very powerful but its epic moment is ... wait there is an epic moment in draconic ? Oh yes there is.

And the way he asks is way too aggressive, just read his 3 first comments. His tone is what I answer with sarcasm, no what he asks for.

I'm not seeing anything on divine crusader other than "Bane of Undeath, Confront Any Foe, and Endless Turning have been moved from Unyielding Sentinel to the Divine Crusader epic destiny."

Will crusader be out, and if it's not, how will i be twisting bane of undeath?

..hmm Well.. Thanks for fixing what you did.. Ill be curious to see if any lag issues were fixed in haunted halls ... doesnt seem like it tho..

My favorite fix was. "Trading cards can no longer be put in AH"... not like anybody was cause we never could search for them ..

Oh and MAJOR thanks for making the shadow effect less intense.. I was just complaining about that on my repeater.. Kinda of sucked when it blacked out enemies.. but cool beans.

I didnt really care about the Akami. . but im sure all them people ranting about it for weeks now appreciate it.

Telling time is hard.

As I write this, 26 minutes to go until they have to extend.

I am still of the opinion, somebody of our script masters should send Cordovan a worldtime signature board for including into his signature - for all those not able to look this up themsefls ^^.

Rainbow in the Dark just got a bit darker. You just killed the only reason one would ever summon it. Just joking :)

Ok, I get that you need to put all the items into the bag to move them around your account, but then shouldn't the bag be able to hold 14 different items instead of 12? Right now there is not enough space in the bags to hold the 14 different items that exist that can go into the bag.


Just saying this is really something the DEV's should have noticed and thought about.

Sad to see that the old Libram's are not updated with the new patch.

It is very nice to know how developer mistakes affect the players. If it's not possible to change the existing ones (I understand that), you should make a way (like the stormreaver monument) to update the old with the new ones.

Well, it is not our fault, dont you think?.

The funny thing is how they changed this :



For this on the official notes :



I guess they would have a initial plan for those Libram's, but, left on the 'To-do' pile.

Are you saying that the existing Librams were not changed with the update? They should be. The Lamannia-specific note was just that, Lamannia-specific for that particular build for Lamannia.

From release notes:

"Music of the Sewers, Music of the Makers, and Music of the Dead now have their appropriate saving throws, durations, and functionality".

From Known Issues:

"The DC for the Music of the Dead, Music of the Makers, and Music of the Sewers enhancements are not scaling properly, which is making it too easy for monsters in higher-level content to save against their effects."

So... do they have their appropriate saving throws or not?


...Is the fact that the order is reversed in the Known Issues significant? *tinfoil hat*
