    Default No Elvish Dragonmark?

    Did something change when Wood Elves were introduced and Elves became Khorvaire Elves? Can't seem to take a dragonmark anymore at character creation or afterwards at level up...

    Yes, with Wood Elves came a new bug preventing Khorvaire Elves from taking the 'mark. The Devs are aware of it. I think they announced they had fixed it, but folks are still experiencing the bug.

    It will presumably get fixed at some point. Until then, no Mark of Shadow for you (or anyone).

    Wood Elves are a racial variant of Elf with distinct look and mildly modified racial enhancement tree. Most notable, they are not eligible for the Dragonmark.

    Main 100+ Lives ( 44x HTR - 15x ITR - 36x ETR - 6/12 RAP - 16x RTR - 72/154 Reaper Points ), Jynxer - Completionist ( 22x HTR 7x ITR 9x ETR 30/154 ), SoulDuster - Completionist - Paladin ( 15x HTR 3x ETR 20/154 ), 7 @ 4th life, 1 @ 3rd life, 2 @ 2nd life.

    Thanks, I think I was vaguely aware of the bug but thought it had been fixed. Guess I'll hold off on *that* build then

    It's not a bug, mglaxix gave u the link, hit the racial variations inside that wiki page
    psykopeta is finally baconpletionist because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS: I post only in the latest thread shown in main page, in the weird case u want something from me, feel free to send pm

    The issue at hand, and related bug, isn't trying to pop a Dragonmark on a Wood Elf (who cannot take a Dragonmark), but on a Khorvaire/Standard Elf (who can take a Dragonmark), and being unable to do so because of said bug being introduced when Wood Elves were put into the game.

    Khorvaire/Standard Elves have, since the advent of Wood Elves in the game, been unable to acquire the Dragonmark of Shadow as they should be able to. That is both the bug and the issue at hand.

    Hm. Didn't notice anything about this in the U41 release notes... anyone else see anything about it?

    Where's the known outstanding bugs list again?

    We've determined the cause of the bug and implemented a fix, but we weren't able to get the time/people necessary to do so until after the Update 41 build was locked.

    Assuming the fix passes QA, we're hoping it'll be in a post-U41 Patch.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.
    We don't only build for the builds that are good right now.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    Only in about a half-dozen different threads at the time.

    Progress!

    But gotta say... very strange, even for code.

    Let me guess, this Elvish dragonmark unlocks a special /dance emotion for bards while singing?

    They are now calling the known issues list the Public Notice Board, but it isn't maintained to any standard. The last update was: "Last edited by Cordovan; 10-03-2018 at 11:33 PM."
