    Good question!

    Everything you get today will stay with you, including your new pirate hat (should you choose to turn in your party invitation today!)

    Provided it stays the same as Llama Land there will be a captain guy standing just south of the general vendor in the harbor.

    If you were looking for a more Loreish-type answer, I don't know.

    We also wanted to mention our newly-published guide to Euphonia's Challenge: Treasure of the Crystal Cover over in the DDO Compendium here!

    Compass drop rates hate my guild leader.

    Two of us had a few compasses, with 2000 handins to go when he logged on. So we went out and we killed and we killed and we killed (and I died and I died and I died while everyone else laughed at me), and he got nothing.

    Then the cave quest opened and we killed and we killed and we killed (and I died and I died and I died and they all laughed at me some more. Apparently I have an affinity for incoming fireballs...)... and then the cave quest closed, and he still didn't have a single compass.

    He also had about 20 gold coins, about 100 silver and about 230 copper. the rest of us had hundreds and hundreds of each.

    Oh - and he has the Tier 6 pirate hat, too... poor Turinde. Pity Turinde. Send him in game mail or forum PMs of condolence with screenshots of all the compasses you looted, he will appreciate it and may even thank you for it and send you cash-money and lingerie for being so considerate. No really. (But don't tell him I told you to do it, because I like being in his guild...)

    Anyway, if there's any chance at all of this being tweaked either for the full run at the weekend or for the next time this event gets run... please allow the doubloons and compasses to be tradable? Bound to guild? Bound to party only? Something?

    I know we'll get plenty more shots at this, and I know he could've bought one in the store - but being a TR-holic he didn't want to spend the TPs cos he needs them for hearts (again, poor Turinde, pity Turinde, send him more PMs with screenshots of all your True Hearts of Wood so that he can stare adoringly at them, he will thank you and send you cash-money and smexy smexy lingerie, I promise, really I do), and there's no way for me to buy a compass for him which I certainly had the TPs for and was prepared to do.

    Still - I was first in to the zone when it opened on Argo (or was first to shout in chat - I got there a split second before a L3 in his underwear with a starter axe...), so that's one acheivement I can claim, except maybe most deaths on the first night...

    Edit: seriously? The word Wist fully (without a space) is censored? I can see the acronym but come on... Swapped it to 'adoringly' to please the censors...

    Its just the preview - it will be back.

    But that's not to say you don't have a point. I hadn't noticed so much this time because it pretty much hit euro prime time as well as US, but you're right, the other half of the world will miss out again. Its an improvement on the mabar preview I think, but I'd have thought a 24 hr preview wouldn't be out of the question either.

    good breakdown here:
    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=300278

    Alternatively you can just go to the event, and look in euphonia's box. Yes, I really said that. Anyway, you can view all the kit by scrolling through it, although I'm not sure whether you get the full details of each one. I'm sure I saw a thread somewhere with it all laid out even better than the one I linked above. Must've been imagining it, cos I can't find it now.

    Thank you to whoever made the change from Lama to have rednames in the Cove drop something. It's often not much (a gem, or a few worker barrels, or a torch), but at least there's some kind of reward for beating through their ridiculous health.

    I wish the other big annoyance -- Madstone rage preventing you from placing torches -- had been removed. Alas!

    I agree that it would be nice if more of this stuff was tradable (not sure why this change was made). Nevertheless, it seems like a lot of people aren't aware that you're not dependent on random loot drops for compasses; you can buy them with doubloons, in game.

    Why would you? It provides a somewhat bigger bonus to doubloons; other than that, there's no stat difference. Anyway, all the hats can be created in the event.

    Hey does anyone know if the descriptions for the recipes in the box are now accurate?
    Devs: Thanks for making Druids available to VIPs without the pack. This more than anything, has made me want to buy the pack.

    Not entirely, no. For instance, the Epic Brawling Gloves second upgrade states that it upgrades the item from sneak attack +3 to sneak attack +4 and adds a yellow slot... however, the base level 20 Epic Brawling Gloves start with sneak attack +4.
