    Any ball park figure on the time?

    Like about 30 mins, maybe 2 hrs or 4 hrs+?

    pretty sure if they could give a good estimate, they would. and after the complications last time, I think no one wants to be flogged for giving an even slightly off guess.

    This is my guess:

This does not provide a stacking benefit, but instead is causing in-game "lag" and game client performance issues. Please do not equip an item with Riposte for now, while we work quickly to correct this issue.

    Tendon Slice is also causing a problem, particularly in PvP. Getting hit with Tendon Slice in PvP is causing a character to get a "permanent" Tendon Slice damage effect until they die. We are working to resolve this with a hotfix tentatively planned for Tuesday as well.

    Either the lag or the Ml1 vorpal weapons. Hopefully the lag.

    Thanks for the info.

    By the way, you guys still haven't compensated the players for the time the game was offline and now somethings are still not working well. Also I am sure that there is going to be a drop rate nerf. (Tell me honestly , how many times there was an update without having to fix things later???) I am sorry to say but someone is not doing the job well.

    I do apologize for being rude Cordovan but I was given reasons by your team.

    I do hope that you guys can make the game work well. Cheers.

    The hotfix will address the following issues:


    • Fixed an issue where several Green Steel weapon effects would not persist through logout.
    • Arcane Warrior now works with ranged weapons.
    • Scion of Elysium's tooltip now makes it clearer that the bonuses apply to your pets.
    • Riposte no longer causes game performance issues.
    • Tendon Slice is no longer the cruelest form of PvP.
    • Insightful and Quality Potency effects now give their proper type of bonus.
    • We have adjusted the horn sounds in To Curse the Sky.
    • Tempest Spine Runes are now accepted by the Tempest Rune Trader instead of Hound of Xoriat Runes, although the tooltip continues to ask for Xorian runes.
    • Adjusted lighting and several other issues in the quest Creeping Death.
    • Fortis should no longer get stuck in an NPC state in the final part of Legendary Shroud.
    • Storm's Harness handwraps no longer lose their shocking effects. A recipe now exists in the Stone of Change to repair handwraps affected by this bug. NOTE: The Stone of Change will remove any Augments placed into the handwraps, so remove the Augments prior to using the Stone of Change.

    you could put it that an optimistic estimate would be an hour, conservatively 2-4 hours, but anything other than we'll get back to you.

    this leads to conclusions that they are not sure of their work.

    Plus it would give us an estimate when to start spamming refresh or just leaving the client at the update server until it gets a response.

    Courtesy is contagious.

    Great stuff. That's actually a lot more than I thought you guys would accomplish today.

    Well done

    Nice list of fixes, 30 minutes warning ingame (enough to do a quest and some slayers). I'm ok with this.
    Now I just got to decide whether to keep hitting F5 for an update on the servers or go do something productive.

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!

    Could you kindly turn your attention to the new items' Spell Lore? I have it on two gloves on my character on Argonnessen and neither item gives Spell Lore when I open the Character Sheet.

    I've also noticed some issues with the Dire Lores on Rings, particularly that they have the wrong names. Impulsive = Negative lore and Reconstructive = Sonic or Radiance lore (can't recall which atm, servers are down).

    I look forward to enjoying your game after the hotfix is done. Have a great day!
