Just a few questions:

+ Have the reported bugs from Lamaland been fixed? Especially with the defunct 2nd tier (Typhoon?) AS ship and the nonworking tavern area effects on the ship?
+ What will be the correct prices now for the new guild ship amenities - is there any list or do you just put in the Lamaland prices?

Thank you for info.

When legacy ship buffs are discontinued, will the 5% XP Shrine be ONLY available for 1510 astral shards or will it be available for plat?

Are AS even dropping in game beyond the very rare DD roll?

Will ALL amenities be sold for plat?

We have been able to buy amenities for plat up until now, and when they are discontinued, why charge real money for them when there is no reasonable way to earn them in game?

Will there be a ship trade in, like we have had prior to U22, where we can sell back our ship for discount on the upgrade or new ship?

Will the Upgraded ships be ONLY available for AS?

Legacy buffs will be available until the new AS ones are dropping in chests.

Astral Diamonds still drop in game.

Not all amenities will be plat. Some combo ones and convenience ones will be AS.

Amenities that you have had will be available for use in the cargo hold until they stop selling them. The plat new amenities will do the same as the old ones and then some. The resists won't be 30, however they will stack with spells/pots, etc, where old ones didn't. So I don't see the real money argument.

Your current ship will convert to a new version of the same kind/size. Upgrades will be the same if you have a plat ship, no discount since you already have a ship with extra hooks.

There will be deluxe versions. All the deluxe ships are AS only. They have some more hookpoints, and the highest grade should have enough for every large amenity, however, the larges are mainly convenience items.

I think the ships are fixed, however what do you mean defunct. Also last time I checked tavern stuff did work, and there was a known issue where you had to zone in and out of the top deck if you used the buff bar to get the banquet buff.

I hope the update this week already includes the fix to permissions to buy the new airship amenities. Already bug reported it this weekend but on lammania only the guild leader can BUY the new airship amenities and it's summer time and some guild leaders might be on vacation... Could be very disappointing for some guilds if they are not able to buy the new shrines for some weeks.

It'd be awesome if this was true, but can't see it happening again tbh, one new enhancement line is pretty different to a change to the entire enhancement system after all. Still, would be great if they were at least made available in the store, probably would end up being about 1995 TP at a guesstimate.

Will the Upgraded ships be ONLY available for AS?

As of today on Lam, there are 3 new plat ships that are unlocked at 100, 130 and 150. They are plat only - no AS.

There are 3 new AS ships that can only be upgraded from the Stormglory Typhon sequentially. These are labled as guild levels 100, 130 and 150, but there is no min guild level to upgrade. So a level 55 guild that has the existing level 55 AS guild ship can by the typhoon followed by the new AS 100, 130 and 150 ships regardless of guild level. The only requirement is having the prior AS ship to upgrade.

There is no way on Lam to upgrade from a plat ship to an AS ship. There are no discounts, but the prices are lower than the old prices.

Typhoon is now 1000 AS vs. 2000 to upgrade from the plat ship and vs. over 3000 to buy outright @ level 85. The level 100, 130 and 150 AS ships are 1k, 2k and 3k AS (6k total to upgrade form typhoon), but the last upgrade is completely unnecessary as you will have unused hookpoints. Getting the top plat ship gives you everything that is currently available. Presumably there will be more in the future, but that hasn't been discussed.
\
I don't believe the AS ships will ever be available for plat or ever drop in loot. It's like the old system with a different upgrade mechanic.

Great question. There are many ninja ready to send the pirates back to the briny deep they came from.

I relish the thought of sabotaging their ships.

And don't get me started on the Epic "Storming the Beaches" gone Normandy-landing terror. Looking very forward to it all.

Not to be a downer but all I'll say is don't plan on taking time off this week or next to play DDO. My guess is we'll see the update take longer than planned, and a good chance of something getting broken that will cause the servers to be taken down again once or twice with little notice.

Otherwise.... Three cheers for our bonny good devs. Arrrgh!

as far as i understood the preview stuff, there will be common amenities for plat like today, and rarer ones for AS/TP
those for AS/TP also drop on saga reward lists

no warranty! i've read this like a month ago, but they put the new ships in relation with sagas at some point


Edit:
i have a question myself: is there going to be a spirit binder on the airship?? its what i wish for since i joined a guild!

Hey remember the update that removed all walls in quests?

Zoning in made all mobs in dungeon aggro on you all at once...they could shoot through walls and floors but you couldn't. It was an awesome experience to run everything at instant red alert.

Maybe this "wonderful" update to guild buffs will also bring back that "wonderful" experience. You never know what will happen when they start tinkering.

This is not entirely true. Guild Vaults are not currently available on Lamannia but Guild Vaults I to V (at Guild Level 150) should be available with Update 22 or later. In order to have every small hook and large hook amenity available (including Guild Vault), 23 small hooks and 6 large hooks are necessary. The largest plat ship in the Volant series has 22 small hooks and 5 (?) large hooks. The largest shard ship, the Daedalean Kraken, is required in order to have 23 small hooks and 6 large hooks out of its 26 small hooks and 7 large hooks. So there are wasted hooks for higher level guilds that can consolidate buffs with the large amenities with the Daedalean Kraken but this ship is still necessary for all of the buffs, even at Guild Level 150.

I get that surprise updates come, but I rather wish the developers could let us know earlier about planned updates? I have a hard time believing this one was a "Oh, it's Monday night, we have to get this out Wednesday. I never saw this coming" sort of update.

Not all of us spend every waking hour checking on the game, and letting us know about planned updates yanno, when they're planned, would be fantastic.

So I saw Sagas are turned back on so yay. It would be great if all the quests I did while they were off counted towards the elite completions, but I won't hold my breath.

My question, though I'm sure minor, is has the Hall of Mark been turned back on. As I'm sure many do I have builds where I take feats for leveling then switch. Well I have a few toons ready to switch and I'd rather not waste flawless on low level feats if it will be free again soon.

It has been confirmed by Turbine that quest completions still count even though the sagas are disabled.

Quote by Cordovan:


FYI, the quests are still being tracked for Saga purposes even when the Saga NPCs are no longer providing rewards.

To answer another question, this is not related to the maintenance that took place earlier today.

It is now possible to show equipped goggles on your upper forehead, allowing you to see your character's eyes while also seeing the goggles equipped. This can be done by using the /gogglesup on|off in the chat window.

Oooo, I didn't know about this! Oddly, this silly little cosmetic adjustment really excites me. XD

I def think with the sagas being down so long and the new edition of sawshbuckler taht all toon should get a +20 heart of wood so we can test out the new enhancements as well as SWF line not to mentioin 8 hour down time

What's that you say, a mere three hours extension to a 5-hour downtime?

Terrible. 8 hours to add an update that I'm not slightly interested in

I've got 2 bards, one 28 and the other 26. (With the sagas reinstated he'd be most of the way to 28!)

I'm pretty disappointed that I'll have to pony up the resources to respec them to swash.

At least give us double comms so I can ETR and get something for my effort as well as the respec.

It does sound kinda neat :) I just hope that they fixed it so that it stays on through log-out. I'm tired of seeing my ugly spider mask every time I log in ^^


I don't mind the extended downtime as it will allow me to fix some other stuff I had waited and I think we were all expecting it ;-)
One thing I don't understand, though, is why the downtime is longer to begin with. That way people might be pleasantly surprised when the game is up half an hour earlier than expected.
If you're worried about people complaining that they had made other plans as they expected the downtime to be longer, then just sit down and have a nice cup of coffee and wait until the correct time to boot up the servers ;D


I think it's unreasonable to ask for +20 hearts. There's been no "build-breaking" changes made. Instead new content has simply been added. +20 hearts should be reserved for complete remakes of a system, such as the enhancement pass or the upcoming Armor/Mitigation changes.
A regular non-plus heart would be adequate in order to try out SWF/Swashbuckler.

This! It looks a lot better to give yourselves extra time for maintenance/update and not need the full time than to only give yourselves four or five hours and end up having to extend it. You did that during the last maintenance (after having to extend the one before by three hours), so why not make it a habit?

Most spells (and the Favored Soul's Angel of Vengeance summoned archon) no longer emit light. This change has been made to improve game performance.

Maybe they thought they could do the update in 3 hours, so they said 5. lol

I would wager that they did give themselves extra time, but something unforseen happened. Some program didn't work with the main game that worked on Lam, or some programmers called in sick and they're short staffed, etc.
It's hard waiting when you're excited to play, but it's probably better to make sure that the program is in correctly then rushed and having more breaks/bugs with the initial release then usual. (There's always bugs to be expected with any new release, no need to make it even worse by rushing the install.) ^_^

That one made me kinda sad too. I loved having the extra light in so many places, like the Underdark, or pretty much any quest that is too dark to see very well in.

I don't get this either. If they don't emit light, how do WE see them?

O look, A rushed update, while ewryone in Lamania is complaining about bugs. No way this can go wrong.

I hope I don't accidentally log out in tavern, and cant log on afterwords till Update 22.1.

No, that is not gonna happen to a 1/3rd of the player base.

Well I hope they read the bug reports, and that the bug reporting tool isn't broken as always.

Yea right lol.

Annnd the last lama build is the one they push to live? If it is a day later, it is not the same. Why not wait until the known issues list is out before complaining about old bugs, or just submit more bug tickets. The more noise on a bug, the higher up the priority list for a fix it will go.

No necessarily because most people who play a bard regularly likely has one splashed or heavily splashed because prior to now pure bards sucked beyond belief in high level content. So to truely try out the new swash many will have to use a +x heart to switch over some levels. In the end any bard that exists in the game would benefit from a +20 heart.

However, I do suspect some want the +20 heart for all characters because the +20's are awesome and can't be purchased.

They gave themselves the same amount of time they usually set aside for maintenance. An update, on the other hand, strikes me as being a bit more involved than maintenance, and probably should've been given eight hours to begin with. That's just my opinion, though. :)

Exactly, i'd summon the archon just for the lights alone. It is so useful.


It is part of the "FVS feel" - Please reconsider.

. Off course a lot of things could still go wrong, and until we test this on live and confirm, we should take it with a (small) pinch of salt but ... Cordovan already confirmed in another thread that sagas are indeed fixed and reactivated with this update

Ehm, has anyone else ran into trouble using cannith crafting after the worlds came up? I found that when i put an item into the Deconstruction altar/machine and click on the appropriate thing I want to do, it does not show the picture of the tonic used extracting (just shows its the number for amount in the stack), and when I press deconstruct it gives me the animation as if it was working right, but nothing further happens. This was on Sarlona in both the Cannith and in the Kundarak crafting halls.

Haven't tried on the ship yet ;-)

Changing character and then logging back in didn't change anything.

Oh, and the Stormglory Bold currently doesn't display right in the Guild tab of the social panel under the guild name (gives <string table error; tableDID)

We are investigating. It appears that Item Deconstruction may be having problems, but shard creation and making an item craftable is continuing to work.

Not to be a downer but all I'll say is don't plan on taking time off this week or next to play DDO. My guess is we'll see the update take longer than planned, and a good chance of something getting broken that will cause the servers to be taken down again once or twice with little notice.

Otherwise.... Three cheers for our bonny good devs. Arrrgh!


Today's downtime has been extended until 3:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT). We will keep you updated!

I was playing several hours after the patch was released without issue other than the bugs with crafting and the bag deposit mentioned earlier in this thread. But then I logged off for a while and when I came back the DDO client stops responding as soon as I log in to a character. The character loads but the screen is frozen and the client stops responding. I tried several different characters thinking that it might just be because I logged out on the guild ship with my main character, but they all do the same thing.
