    Default Downtime Notice: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT) Wednesday, July 29th

    UPDATE: The game worlds have reopened! Thank you for your patience, and we will see you in the game!

    The DDO Game Servers will be brought down on Wednesday, July 29th from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT) for a hotfix. Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon!

    Want to convert this to your local time? Click here!

    This hotfix will address several issues, including an issue where lower-level characters are unable to teleport to Amrath from their guild airship, Trials of the Archons quest givers are not properly interacting with players, and some appropriate-level characters are not receiving Mysterious Remnants when they should be. We'll have further detail tomorrow.

    Well, well. That did not take long. Thank you for the informtion.

    Sure that 2 hours of downtime will be enough? Usually it takes longer to patch the game. And we all know the usual suspects complaining prolonged downtimes, me included.

    Default Loss of Bravery Bonus

    I'm fairly certain that this isn't the correct forum to post this, and, yes, I have submitted a bug report. I was running a level 23 through the new Amrath quests, on Epic Normal (level 30 quest) which, according to what I know about Bravery Bonus, means that, while it would not progress, it would not be broken (7 level difference between quester and quest). I ran Demon Assault, and upon completion, lost my Bravery Bonus Streak. At the time it was 114 (I know, not that big of a number, but, still, I should not have lost it). Is there a way that my BB Streak can be reinstated?

    Please acknowledge that the operating conditions of the raid are currently unplayable for large chunks of the time. The issues you laid out are indeed important, but surely the lag has to be the number one thing you folks are working on. Right?

    anyone else finds this pretty ridiculous way to say that character were capable to get remnants in quests of lot lower level than intended?

    edit:
    oh, sorry - I found that one post about not getting any remnants in HE PoP, which by itself is not proof on remnants not dropping it can be just bad luck. while reports of remnants dropping in heroic quests for epic characters were reported a lot more times and proving definitely something is wrong.


    kinda reminds me radio jerevan jokes:

    - "is it true that in Jerevan cars are given to citizens for free?"
    - "yeah, its true, but its not cars but bicycles and they are not given but stolen"

    The sooner the better with Hotfixes, eh. Although I think that its a bit of a shame that remnants dropping for over level characters is also getting cut back out (a sliding scale where you get less and less the higher lvl you are would be nice, to get at least a few of them, especially in epics?)

    Default not quite accurate. It went both ways

    That is not quite accurate. As I understand it, the issue went two ways: on the one hand it gave a few remnants to clearly over level characters (shouldn't be a big deal, but yeah its in favor of the players, I would like to keep this in) and some at level players NOT getting their remnants on the other hand, which clearly has to be dealt with. I guess the issues are of the same nature, 2 sides of the same bug.

    as I understand how percentage chance work it is still possible run couple elites beat number of champs and still not get any remnants. that may seem strange but still possible.

    or am I supposed to bug report any time I m not getting single chest from orange named in quest?

    Are the typos being fixed as well at the same time, or just the bugs?
    Just a random, forgettable NPC doing things an NPC does
    Things that NPCs do include, but are not limited to:

    Having a gold goblet over my head to indicate availability of a quest
    Having a catchphrase that never really catches on
    Having various rewards that are generally not worth the trouble
    Wandering around randomly
    Giving out obvious information if it wasn't obvious enough
    Repeating the same lines over and over again

    As someone who does a LOT of Favour Farming I feel sad now that I haven't played the last couple of days!

    Devs: Can you PLEASE change Remnant Drops and Guild Renown drops to the same system as XP!
    XP goes from:
    Full with BB at Elite level
    Full at Elite+1
    -10% at Elite+2
    -25% at Elite+3
    -50% at Elite+4
    -75% at Elite+5
    -99% at Elite+6
    to
    0 at Elite+7 or higher!

    Remnants and Renown simply VANISH at Elite+1!

    It's wrong! Utterly wrong!

    The Downtime notice is specifically about a downtime to fix a "supposed" issue with remnants dropping!

    So my post has quite a lot to do with this downtime notice!

    There is a difference between a fix for something not WAI and a redesign of something WAI, but not in a way desired by players. I think your recommendation would be better served in a separate thread as a suggestion for tweaking the system rather than a random post in a notice about (an attempt to) fix remnants to function as intended, if not desired.

    My fingers are crossed and hoping that the worlds are only down for a very short time!
