    Default Enhancements: Event #1 – Dev Q&A

    We are very excited for you to have the opportunity to get an Early Preview of the Enhancement revamp. I’m sure you will have lots of questions about the new Enhancements! All Racial Enhancements as well as Artificer, Cleric, Fighter, and Ranger Enhancements will be the first to reach Lamannia.

    Vargouille, KookieKobold, and I will drop by to say "hello," answer questions, and chat! Show up on Lamannia on the following day and time and use "/joinchannel DevChat" to join in on the conversation!

    Thursday, April 11th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

    All times are Eastern (GMT-5)

    Smiles,
    Squeak

    Question, will there be a character wipe? And can we get a text version of the enhancements ahead of time so we can start planning now?

    I doubt there is going to be a character wipe but would appreciate it if confirmation is offered, because I am currently rolling up and AH-gearing a bunch of test toons and would not want all that busywork to go to waste.


    *Also some tomes in the AH would be great!

    1. There will not be a character wipe tomorrow. We want to verify that the Old Enhancements to New Enhancements process is working as it should.
    2. Sadly I do not have a text version of the Enhancements that I can share. Plus, I really would like to encourage you to view the new Enhancements in game and actually try them out! (Granted, they are arriving in the middle of the week, so I know you may not have the opportunity to view them until the weekend. )
    3. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that DDO will get Dragonscale outfits.
    4. I will put +5 Ability Tomes on the Auction House tonight!

    Great, I have been saving up my transfers for this, just tried to copy 2 mains specifically for testing for this , and both failed. That leaves me 1 more attempt.

But really, the EPL's are not worth the pain of 6 million XP in off destinies/sphere's.

    *sigh* Well thanks for the answer, Squeak. It is appreciated.

    *removes a few more months on how much longer he thinks he has left in this game* Those outfits could have done a lot to help keep me.

    So, is anyone else having issues getting the lamma client to install? I have tried a few times today, and I always get the error that pando media booster cannot connect to their server. I tried all of their fixes, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling pando, and nothing worked. Had a friend of mine also try and had the same results on his machine, so I don't think the problem is on my end. Curious if anyone else has tried to install lamma today, successfully or otherwise.

    A few questions for tomorrow:

    1. When you say "enhancements", do you mean the naughty kind? Is that why the term "action points" was picked?
    2. Will oxygen masks and peer counseling opportunities be provided to those who need them, when the number of trees is announced?
    3. Will the UI be so profoundly, dazzlingly simple that we'll need spouse or child aggro to return us to thinking about our daily lives?

    Question: Is there any chance that Rangers might finally get their Animal Companion? You do have some practice now with Arti's and Druids. (Oh and was it an intentional snub at those Ranger players who've wanted the pet since forever to have Druid Wolves be classed as Rangers?)

    Just a comment here. A text version of what they *should* be doing would be very useful.

    We can all log in and read tool tips, and we can go look at the effects using them. But its a virtual certainty they will not all work as described. And some will probably work in a completely different way because we are using an older version of stuff you guys have already changed internally.

    I say this because, time and again, we are told "things are corrected on our internal build" which never populate to live (madstone boots shaken anyone), and because plenty of destiny abilities *STILL* work differently than tool tips indicate or have tool tips which disagree in different windows (symmetric strikes anyone). And that doesn't even cover ones which work differently than expected, such as Rejuvenating Cocoon breaking invisibility, despite being a beneficial/healing effect which should not do so under any circumstances yet does there, probably because of some missed flag code side.

    It is impossible to tell which tool tip should be right, which rules rejuve cocoon should be following, etc without being told, at some point, what we are supposed to be seeing.

    I would strongly advocate for a write up of what its supposed to do. For once, let us know what to look for so we can find it and point it out instead of just guessing what doesn't match.

    Make this enhancement pass a shining example of quality work, and not another half finished bug patch which months later we are still left living with. Epic destinies are a cool feature, but they are not polished. The game does not need another unproofed system patched in.

    I understand not having time to go fix everything... but please fix this before it gets started. Now is the time to go in and mess with the code. Now is the time to fix all that without breaking anything, or without complicating something else. The more transparent you are about what we should be seeing, the more eyes you will have looking for errors and/or providing feedback. Otherwise, its just going to be a guessing game at every turn where things don't match up... and thats sure to be a lot of places. I understand this is only the first test pass, but the time to fix is before the bugs get too far. And the sooner we know what to watch for the better quality things will be in the end.

    Hopefully, thanks.

    How effective (or ineffective) would 12/6/2 builds become in light of the new enhancement pass?

    Rangers were given both melee and ranged bonus feats to replace the missing pets which one are you willing to give up to get a half-strength gimp pet?

    The ANTI-Realms FANBOI NUKE THE REALMS ITS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO BE SURE
