    Some cool and unexpected stuff!

    How do currently existing characters get the skill and HP bonuses?


    "Additional logging of items has been added at the time a character talks to the Lifeshaper."

    Is this data that the GMs will have access to when we file help tickets?
    That's not lag, it's just DDO trying to become turn-based again.

    Feature wishlist: colour-coded HP bars; red/blue teams in raids; rez-timer in party menu; equip-able halflings

    Will our characters need to go speak with the patrons to pick up these new favor bonuses?

    I don't know what to respond to first so much of this sounds awesome. Favor Rewards! yes! Cosmetic rewards found in the Ravenloft bundles are now Bound to Account. YES! Please! Everything under subsection Monsters. Yes! MotU trailer optional, yes please. Banker in the Portable Hole? Give someone a cookie. Hope everything under Miscellaneous works.

    Will Anniversary cookies finally go in the Store-Bought Cookie Jar?

    If I have my facts straight...……..

    Tier 4 (Falconry Tree) of Free Agent favour is achieved at 700 (not seeing anything in the release notes about a change to that number)

    There is only 720 free agent favour available.

    That includes 48 from Titan Awakes and Twilight Forge.

    Dev's appear to be trolling us guys

    At least until they release Sharn expansion with quests that I assume will add to Free Agent favour.

    If not ……. well then they really are trolling us.

    One other question - are we safe to assume that unlocking the Falconry Tree will persist through TR? Account wide or per character?

    Works just like Vistani Knife Fighter unlock via favor. Per character and will persist through everything.

    New Patron rewards will apply when talking to the patron to get that tiers rewards.

    Unfortunately, this means that for bonuses added to reward tiers that already existed pre-patch which you have already bypassed and turned in during your current life there is not a way to obtain them until TR.

    Falconry is unlocked on a per character basis through favor that persists across reincarnation for that character once unlocked.

    Thanks for the answer

    I think lack of comment to the first part means I'm not mistaken about the situation.

    Yes, better recordkeeping. I'm cautiously optimistic that the other work we did will mean that it won't be needed.

    Are the skill/HP grants persistent across lives as well?

    "Additional logging of items has been added at the time a character talks to the Lifeshaper."

    If you talk to the lifeshaper, turn in your TR, and then decide to play for another week and your items change, does this list become out of date? If so, should there be an explicit notice about this so no one has an excuse should it happen?

    Losing a week of progress is a lot less painful than losing years of progress. Still, hopefully it will be a moot point, assuming that the changes to prevent losses actually work. Code is hard, though, and the nature of the internet means nothing is sterile or neat.

    Everything in the patch notes are awesome and I greatly approve of it all. Props all around. HOWEVER - for this one quirk - I have only one word to say: BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    (I have characters at cap that I planned to never TR again (one of which I have worked hard on to get to almost max favor (only a few points away atm) and have already collected the rewards currently available), so this makes me a sad panda)

    Yes, the list becomes out of date, but it's more of a breadcrumb. By having some of the unique ID's of the items in the logs, we can cross-reference them with orphaned items we find in the database, and then un-orphan the lost items. What's in the database is the authoritative source, the logging is an additional tool.

    Does this mean that the Harper's clickie (Lesser & Greater Harper Pin) is now gone or are the SKill bonuses in addition to the clickies?

    This was kind of a cool item - I use it quite often.

    Thank you for this

    Half Orc Male Great Axe sneak attack animations have undergone some polish work.
    This wouldn't have been my top priority to fix stealth play bu it's a start I guess.

    Default Stacking skill boosts?

    I see that it says the HP bonuses stack. Do the skill bonuses also stack? ie the Harper rank 1 and the Phiarlan 1 both have Perform 2
