    If you said "any group who plays melee in elite/epic end game content extensively", I might agree with you. But, the the number of people playing melees with 400 SF favor and Madstone boots is actually a pretty small subset of the player base.

    Silver Flame potion users are not the norm. The vast majority of players don't run every quest in the four Necropolis packs on Elite. And of those who do, not all of them pay the kind of money that keeping SF potions in stock costs.

    And without the SF issue, its not a terrible change. A little less Str/Con, but full clicky usage wouldn't bother me at all. Most paladins and rangers only have 14 Wis, but 15 or 16 is pretty easy to get with tomes. A player with Madstone boots probably isn't lacking in +1 and +2 Tomes.

    Maj, I am very happy with the continued communication. Even if you get beat up. A lot.

    It's worth a lot to us just to hear some honest feedback that you guys are frustrated when stuff breaks too and you are working on it.

    (Now can I go on the field trip? )

    (Unless it's like the Magic Schoolbus gone wrong and we get stuck in a wall or extraplanar void... Actually, I'll wait for the next trip. )

    So... about the field trip, does that mean I'm off the hook for not getting my permission slip signed, thereby forcing me to stay in Ebberon, getting scolded by Mr. and/or Mrs. Cordovan for forcing him/her to remain to supervise me. A field trip that probably feels like going to Disneyland for Mr. and/or Mrs. Cordovan that everyone else gets to enjoy except him/her, and ends with my resulting banishment to Kyber for all eternity? Because I have a better place I'd rather be, particularly leveling to 20 again XD. Unless by sending me to kyber, it's a chance for me to grow more powerful, to break free and seek revenge..... only to have a pesky adventurer strike me down into Kyber again.

    Or Lammania, where I corrupt it from happy go lucky on my Pale Master and turn it into a second plane of undeath XD

    Edit: Actually I want my own personal plane..... so if I had to choose from Kyber or a undead Lammania, I pick the undead Lammania XD

    Maj, I've got an issue of... Major... importance. as we all know, in many campaigns based in Forgotten Realms, one of most basic cannon fo= eh, i mean, most basic enemy mob type / monstrous world inhabitant was goblins. I didn't seen a single greenskin goblin in Eberron unlimited; in eberron, kobolds have this sort of status. And I didn't met many kobolds in my Forotten Realms excursions.

    so, my issue is, will there be goblins in Forgotten Realms part of the world? Aren't you afraid those will take your job? Will FR be an alternate universe, with goblins instead of kobolds?

    Seriously, why not publish proposed changes before you actually spend the time working on it? There are some smart people who can talk theoretically around here.

    Nor should you have to vet every single change with the players, as game developers, it's down to you to balance the game. But, when you take some peoples favourite toys and break them, they are bound to spit the dummy out of the pram and blame the Dev's for not thinking with foresight.

    Sometimes it's far better to use overtime at your job to find errors in advertising that causes you to lose paying customers, and then when you have blockbuster games being released for 2 quarters of a year, it might be a good idea to make sure something works before you start to push it. Failing at this can cause you to lose a fanbase ultimately putting you one step closer to unemployment. You make us happy we give you money, you upset us we move on. I check here occasionally now to see if youve gotten a clue but it still sounds like you think the paying customers don't know what they want, and it's simple. Don't advertise a feature that doesn't work, don't use misleading ads, start using words like NOT FREE in place of premium content as your vips are supposed to get ALL PREMIUM CONTENT for free.

    Agreed.

    Also, I just wanted to pop in and state that I applaud the communications changes you folks have made. The Madstone boots change and back and forth is an example of excellent player-dev communication, IMO. Yes, there have been bumps, but good job and keep it up - its appreciated.

    Default like an umpire

    Being a Dev is like being an referee at the NBA championships. It doesn't matter what call you make, half the people in the stadium are going to hate it and yell at you. All you can do is just make the best calls with as much information as you can get.

    I love the increased communication!

    And bagels. Don't forget the bagels.
    The kobold cannot be marked as junk because it cannot be sold. You can destroy it by dragging and dropping it outside your inventory.

    Only if they are good bagels(which are not available in all towns/cities).
