    Default Update 16: Leveling Event #2 - Quests!

    Hello! It's about time for another Lamannia Event! For this event, I would like everyone to play through the new U16 Quests in the High Road Adventure Area. We would greatly appreciate your feedback on this new content!

    Of course you need things to run these quests, so I will be waiting for you in Eveningstar (perhaps with a few others) on the following days and times to distribute Heroic/Epic Experience, Plat, and to fill the Auction House with loot! Additionally, there will be a Door to Eveningstar placed in the Harbor near the Founder's Fountain to assist your arrival.

    Friday, October 19th from 7pm to 9pm

    Saturday, October 20th from 9am to 11am

    All times are Eastern (GMT-4)

    Smiles!

    Default No thank you

    Since you have not wiped the characters on lam, no one I have there can get to Eveningstar. I refused to spend hours running 4 different quests just to be eligible to do so. Thank you for the invite but I decline to RSVP.

    The point still stands though. The last character wipe I heard of was back when U14 was still on lamma, it stands to reason that a large portion of the player base has made a fair amount of progress since then. Why would we want to take characters that are 6 months out of date to test new content with? That is the single reason why I do not currently have lammania installed, and I won't have it installed until they actually do a character wipe so I can get my updated characters over there.

    Folks, while I agree a wipe would lead to better feedback, particularly on the harder difficulties, epic casual was completely unthreatening to my not massively geared fvs, and the High Road is fine also. So it is worth giving feedback even if you dont have a toon all destinied up.

    Testing on Lammania is about testing the new content. It's not about playing with the new toys on your toons, so I fail to see why you need that exact version of your toon to run the quests.

    D'oh. I very much agree and regret my snark. I will however leave it up so others can laugh at me. Maybe it will remind me to read before I gab

    It makes no sense for to keep going without a wipe. Most folks prefer to test new stuff on current characters. Not pale copies of what they once were. Dev events get lots of folks attention simply because of the fun stuff devs do. But how many bother to show between events?

    I know I spend very little time testing on Lam these days because I'm not going to grind all the gear I have now on test characters. I suspect I am far from the only one.

    Sure it will - right after I go back over there again and get another character actually XP'd and Geared.
    So while I stay away, your characters are safe.

    ...You're welcome.

    I tried hearing that in Rourke's 'Fantasy Island' intro speech voice - but it keeps coming across all squeaky-sounding.

    Testing the new content? Probably not. The new ED? I absolutely do.

    So that you can give honest feedback on difficulty having run quests on a toon you know how to play well.

    I know I'd overestimate quest difficulty if I was playing it on a toon I hadn't played in six months.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    I highly doubt turbine cares one bit about feedback anymore. besides, lamma isnt a test server, live is.

    bug reporting tool - broken since inception. lamma character copy - broken for so long most forgot when it worked. exit survey - broken.

    Sounds like everything is broken, except exaggerations.

    sadly, I exagerated nothing. the 3 things I listed are and have been broken. the fact that they have to do with gathering feedback is just the icing on the cake.

    Well... I guess it bears repeating, again and again:

    Unhappy

    I have to agree that a wipe is long overdue. Several of us from Khyber have chosen to skip all events/testing on the server until a wipe is done. Granted we number only about 20, but perhaps a dev will read this and choose to listen anyway.

    I couldn't agree more....

    Why would I want to go test quests on a character(s) that I have not played in MONTHS? Not to mention MONTHS worth of work to level ED's and gather gear.

    Dev's. thank you for the invite, but no thanks...

    If you want open honest feedback, allow us players the tools to do that.
