    Is this covering the weekly restart as well? Or taking servers back down on Wednesday as well?

    Eastern, or -5 GMT? They are different by an hour this time of year. I'm pretty sure the Boston area, like most of the rest of the eastern US at this time of year, is on -4 GMT (Eastern).

    -5 GMT is Eastern Standard Time, but that's for the winter.

    You realise GMT right now is BST right and that apart from maybe 1 week in between when UK swaps over and US swaps over it's still -5!

    GMT is always GMT ... we are on BST which is GMT+1. It is still 5 hrs between us, but eastern is -4 GMT and we are +1GMT.

    By never changing it, they are only wrong for 6 months per year ... a bit like the clock in my car

    Default Nomenclature

    When will Reaper be properly renamed to Librarian and the Wraiths no longer egregiously offend the actual Reapers of Souls by misrepresentation?

    Besides, it's a lot neater to think that you're going up against the Codex itself when you go in on Librarian.

    That way the players get the sense that the Codex is trying to murder them, not some psychopath eating all their pizza.

    Oooo that sounds mysterious

    Anyway, while you guys are at it, you might want to look into what might be a new issue (to me, at least). There have been some issues with doors not opening the way they should in Chains of Flame (even when grabbing all available keys, some doors acts as if key hasn't been picked up) and A Cry for Help (drawbridges won't lower even when both levers are pulled properly). I tried resetting and re-running a few times, and got the same result.

    Just a heads up.

    This is an issue of context and in context saying -5 GMT is correct because the UK is -5 from the US right now - If Cordovan had wrote -4 GMT as would be strictly correct people would be even more confused as we'd be looking at our clocks in England forgetting about BST and expecting the game back up at the wrong time!

    Cordovan also doesn't say Eastern Standard Time because the East Coast of the US isn't on Eastern Standard Time for half the year and the rest of the US isn't EVER on Eastern Standard Time - He just says Eastern because that's the ACTUAL time in Boston right now.

    Righto on GMT offset. We are currently GMT-4, and I wrote it incorrectly. Will endeavor to keep it more accurate moving forward. For our UK folks, it's important to remember that "British Time" is not actually the same as GMT. GMT never changes, British Time does.

    It's sad that this has to keep being said.
    Steve Howe was voted "Best Overall Guitarist" in Guitar Player magazine five years in a row (1977–1981) and in 1981 was the first rock guitar player inducted into the Guitar Player Hall of Fame.

    Default Aussircaex in Irestone Inlet

    Just after the update - Aussircaex lvl 26, 80234 hp - was in lvl4 quest Irestone Inlet. Is that a bug - or just a random angry dragon?
