    If I wanted to play a level 25 toon in starter rags and a nicked scimitar, I had the Stone of Experience to work with. Sadly, I squandered that opportunity by slapping another life on my multiple-TR.

    And if I'm awake from 9-11 am eastern time on a Sunday, there'd better be a zombie apocalypse, since I work evenings. And it'd be hard to tell who's doing more moaning and shambling.


    They need to do a character wipe to get any idea how difficult the new content will realistically be, given how much the standards for gear have changed since the last time character copies worked properly. The stuff from the Eveningstar Commendation Vendors didn't even exist then.
    Well all I can say is I ran all 5 quest in The High Road on a 1st life lvl 20 arti with AH gear from lvl's 16-20 on epic hard with 5 hires lvl's 21-22 and had no problems completing the quest.
    I ran it on my lvl 22 druid 4th life with 5 hires and AH gear on epic elite and had no problems
    Also ran with my lvl 25 barb 1st life with AH gear and a hire fvs lvl 24,and had no problems on epic hard
    If I can run them without my live toons that are set up with epic gear then I would think that anyone can , cause I dont claim to be an uber player but I am a decent one.
    Now that being said if I could bring all 13 of my 4th lifers from live here I would be all for a character wipe but as it is now max I can copy is 5 and that is IF character copy worked right which would still leave me with at least 8 toons that I would have to create and gear up since I like to test with all classes. Though at the moment I have 13 classes already here since Ive been runnin this since last wipe.
    Really did it take you 2+ years to farm out your gear on live ? Wow and I thought a week was along time.

    Squeak, I know that server wipes are a royal pain since the automated character copy service often has performance issues, but I think you would find more people willing to participate on Lamannia if their characters were more current.

    (For example, I didn't want to do the flagging quests to get me to Eveningstar on old level 20 versions of my toons, so I didn't, and can't provide any feedback on the new stuff...)

    Also you could probably do away with the only copying 5 characters limitation -- it might actually help deal with the performance issues of the automated character copy. (I still expect it to fail, but atleast the failures wouldn't also waste a copy...)

And since we have been playing together for 2 yrs now it doesnt take long to get through a dungeon and we share in the spoils,
    And as far as the EE if you noticed I ran with my 4th life druid which with augment summoning gives my hires pets and summons a +10 to all stats making it easier to get through the quest
    If you still dont believe then I invite you to join me on Lamannia and we'll run it together
    As far as previous post I didnt post on everytime Ive ran the series If I did that would have been 16 times now about to be 17 since I am headed back there now
    augment summoning does not give +10 to all stats.

    3 druid past lives give +2 each for total of +6, +4 for augment summon is +10.

    Edit: I initially though augment summon was +2 rather than +4

    It would. A naked character is not the same thing than a character with the right items.


    I'm also for a wipe, as long as we can transfer after said wipe.
    For the time being test without me, as my characters are outdated, and my 5 transfers have been used.

    Well Squeak, by my count it 9 to 2 for a wipe. And thats just this thread. Ballpark over the forum it's running 4 to 2 in favor. I'm sure by now you can tell that the overall particapation on Lama would go up dramiticly. I do agree that a revamp of the copy needs to be adressed. It's now your call Squeak.

    Sorry. My reading failure. I missed the 4 druid lives part.

    Default Release notes and character wipe

    With the recent difficulties with Mabar, the release notes will be delayed. They probably won't be updated until early next week. Most changes to the new Lamannia were bug fixes. I will let you know as soon as the release notes have been posted.

    As for the Character wipe, it will not happen while we are in the middle of U16. I understand that testing is hampered without proper toons to run content. That is why we have XP/loot events. However, even with XP/loot events, sometimes people aren't available to join, and new toons should run U13 content for proper flagging; both of which can be frustrating. However, I also have to consider that the character transfer tool is acting up. In other words, a character wipe will happen at some point, but it's not going to happen right now.

    Has anyone that has ran Lost in the Swamp found the evil presence ? Or is that a bug I've ran it over 17 times and have yet to find it.
    Also has anybody found all 4 pieces of evidence in End of the Road again over 17 times and still have not found.
    And 1 more has anyone come across the 2nd Random Encounter in The High Road ? Would like to know if bugged or if Im just passing them up somewhere.


    And I for one am glad to hear no wipe

    Understandable. I will note it really would help targeting refinement feedback if we knew what folks were attempting to accomplish, and what all is mutable in the time constraints given.

    1. Make sure you free all three ghosts, then proceed into the cave behind the second ghost, get the key from under the water, unlock the door with the key, then unlock the inner dor with a bell or picking the lock. The evil presence is there.

    2. Look under the End of the Road Thread - I posted all the locations for the four messages.

    3. All the rares will show, it just takes time. See the thread about the problems with the werewolf encounter - I posted a list of all the rare encounters there.

    Good luck!

    Well good luck with your testing then. I guess I'll just wait until the update hits live to bug hunt for you

    I'll be waiting anxiously for the wipe to start the hunt.
