That was fast. Epic fast! I can't wait to hit those quests!
Astral Diamonds still drop in game.
Not all amenities will be plat. Some combo ones and convenience ones will be AS.
Amenities that you have had will be available for use in the cargo hold until they stop selling them. The plat new amenities will do the same as the old ones and then some. The resists won't be 30, however they will stack with spells/pots, etc, where old ones didn't. So I don't see the real money argument.
Your current ship will convert to a new version of the same kind/size. Upgrades will be the same if you have a plat ship, no discount since you already have a ship with extra hooks.
There will be deluxe versions. All the deluxe ships are AS only. They have some more hookpoints, and the highest grade should have enough for every large amenity, however, the larges are mainly convenience items.
So I have one afternoon to enjoy my Archer? Well at least I made it there this time .
I hope the update this week already includes the fix to permissions to buy the new airship amenities. Already bug reported it this weekend but on lammania only the guild leader can BUY the new airship amenities and it's summer time and some guild leaders might be on vacation... Could be very disappointing for some guilds if they are not able to buy the new shrines for some weeks.
I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.
There are 3 new AS ships that can only be upgraded from the Stormglory Typhon sequentially. These are labled as guild levels 100, 130 and 150, but there is no min guild level to upgrade. So a level 55 guild that has the existing level 55 AS guild ship can by the typhoon followed by the new AS 100, 130 and 150 ships regardless of guild level. The only requirement is having the prior AS ship to upgrade.
There is no way on Lam to upgrade from a plat ship to an AS ship. There are no discounts, but the prices are lower than the old prices.
Typhoon is now 1000 AS vs. 2000 to upgrade from the plat ship and vs. over 3000 to buy outright @ level 85. The level 100, 130 and 150 AS ships are 1k, 2k and 3k AS (6k total to upgrade form typhoon), but the last upgrade is completely unnecessary as you will have unused hookpoints. Getting the top plat ship gives you everything that is currently available. Presumably there will be more in the future, but that hasn't been discussed.
I don't believe the AS ships will ever be available for plat or ever drop in loot. It's like the old system with a different upgrade mechanic.

Several characters on Sarlona all starting with "Rand" in the Guild "Guardians of House Cannith". My main four characters are Randowl (18 rogue 2 artificer mechanic - hope to go back to DC casting some day), Randslar (Bard 14 / Fighter 4 / Rogue 2 Swashbuckler), Randek (Druid CC Caster 17/Fvs 3) and Randomall (Rogue 20 assassin).
Will Sting of the Ninja be fixed for shuriken?
I relish the thought of sabotaging their ships.
And don't get me started on the Epic "Storming the Beaches" gone Normandy-landing terror. Looking very forward to it all.
Not to be a downer but all I'll say is don't plan on taking time off this week or next to play DDO. My guess is we'll see the update take longer than planned, and a good chance of something getting broken that will cause the servers to be taken down again once or twice with little notice.
Otherwise.... Three cheers for our bonny good devs. Arrrgh!
those for AS/TP also drop on saga reward lists
no warranty! i've read this like a month ago, but they put the new ships in relation with sagas at some point
i have a question myself: is there going to be a spirit binder on the airship?? its what i wish for since i joined a guild!

Hey remember the update that removed all walls in quests?
Zoning in made all mobs in dungeon aggro on you all at once...they could shoot through walls and floors but you couldn't. It was an awesome experience to run everything at instant red alert.
Maybe this "wonderful" update to guild buffs will also bring back that "wonderful" experience. You never know what will happen when they start tinkering.
Hmmm, I don't think that I could properly express how I feel about this, so I'll use Phaeshalee to say it for me.
*sketches up a doodle*
Yes Phae, that just about says how I feel... zomg, zomg, yes yes yes.

And, it really does better express how I feel about this update tomorrow. lol I'm such a girl, I'm too excited about getting a bigger ship and putting stuff in it to play around with. XD
Yeah would love a 20 heart to so can twist in some new swashy bard.
