    Wasn't sure because I never saw that on the official page about the Hardcore Server.

    I'm guessing Dance of Flowers hasn't been fixed.

    I described what was wrong with it here: https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...=1#post6240020

    While it doesn't necessarily show up in the character sheet, Dance of Flowers seems to be granting its bonus properly.
    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.

    You also need to exempt Return to Delera's Tomb (level 6) so that people can run the level 7 and 8 quests that require it.

    Ok. I will test and let you know the results if my findings run counter to your assertion.

    EDIT: Yes, my testing shows it's definitely working. Thanks!

    2. Cerulean Hills entry door says 3, but inside its really level 2 on the explorer/rares/kills. Doesnt matter much after tomorrow, just confusing

    how about "Primal Avatar: Many Primal Avatar skills that had stopped working while Twisted now work again."? Yesterday I did some testing and it seems balanced attacks is not giving +6 to-hit with TWF when twisted, did not test the knockdown.

    I am guessing this was the first one they fixed as it was the biggest problem. Most things could be dealt with by doing them only 2 or 3 levels above base (instead of waiting for 4), but those two quests simply could not be done due to the adventure area. Hopefully they got Demon Sands too. It was fine if you were running heroic, but there was no chance to run epic because you were locked out of getting to the quests at epic levels.
