Just to confirm for planning purposes...will this mean the livestream will be postponed/cancelled? (I assume winter fling will proceed as normal)

im just putting this in here whether or not its in the plans for tomorrow or not, I don't know. Von 4 is bugged and I did put in a report. unless you want in game GMs to do nothing but force the Assistant to open the gate for groups that actually take the time to call for one, this is something that should get fixed ASAP since it is a required flagging quest. thnx

Will this fix the broken bank deposit box?

The only functionality it has that made it good (dropping full bags over it and it would empty the contents) was broken by the last update.

Otherwise: why can't you try to get everything right with the original fix?

It is after nearly every update that we get a hotfix 2 days later.

That is pretty annoying.

Don't get me wrong, I love this game but, 2 "Game Evenings" taken every few weeks hurt.

A dentists appointment is less painful than DDO's upgrades or patches lol I had 2 fillings done the other day and was actually quite looking forward to it instead reading what the heck they have broke now.

They took them down in alphabetical order?

So, how is Penn State going to do in that loaded 1/2 of the Big Ten in football? Obviously, Penn State does okay in wrestling and women's volleyball.

exactly my point...why tomorrow when on Monday they posted them almost immediately?

nice to see them trying to fix stuff, I applaud them for that...but this sounds like something covert, hopefully fixing exploits and the reason why they are holding back on the notes.

I'm a bit confused??

They posted the release notes for Mondays downtime. which was announced on Friday, about an hour and a half into the downtime.

I imagine they will post what is being changed in today's downtime sometime during the downtime as well?

This game goes down oftener than a submarine captain. Could probably gets lots of volunteer testers from the community to avoid these hotfixes?

what ur nerfing now?

I say sagas, already hit all the fast win quests for xp (coal chamberand RR for heroic is under half old xp), and the explorers (some down 1/3-1/2). Have to make people want to get boxes some way, and new players are not going to be the way they get those sold off.

The only thing that confuses me is how the time of the post doesn't line up with the timezone I am in...if I knew how that worked I might have a better sense of timing... there seems to be a 5-6 hour time difference.

I am currently located in Ontario, it's almost 11 am, but my post says almost 4 pm...i thought the game servers are located in the US not Europe so why are we using a European timezone which would explain the time difference.

It is "Tomorrow"

The other poster asked for Release Notes. Cordo said there would be NO release Notes for this patch. That's what I was pointing out.

As far as "more information" goes, Cordo has since posted that.

Most of the time info is GMT. Right now that is +5 hours for Ontario and eastern US (12pm Ontario is 5pm GMT).

Servers are in US but time is normally GMT.

Which ones in particular? Just curious as I'm considering a swashbuckling vanguard. Reminds me, how come Different Tack (SB Tier 3) requires SWF but not Swashbuckling?

Sapphires of Defense may have the new nae and description text, but they don't actually give MRR.

My Sapphire of Defense +12 slotted to a helm gives me +12 prr and +12 mrr as shown by character sheet and log. You are not wearing something that gives MRR and does not stack with the Sapphire? Without the helm my MRR is 0 so in my case the Sapphire is the only source of MRR and seems to be working fine.
