    Bummer that the mod is one we already have. Wish it had been for another of the unrevamped sets, but such is life.

    Yay! This was driving me slowly crazy. I was becoming half-convinced it was part of an evil plot to brainwash me.

    What's with the jump animation? And was it intended?

    Any chance how it was could be returned? Personally kinda liked the athletics backwards movement jump worked... and for that matter the running midair thing from superspeed.

    Everything else looks nice so far

    (please give chaostitandragon their magnifiers tho)

    Too bad they can't fix Super Jump so that your first leap doesn't put you sideways to the direction you are jumping.

    At least High Noon is an event that happens 2-3 times per year
    Patriot Event however is ONCE per year :|​​

    Not a fan of the Mustard-Foxbat colours Ladyhawk got
    Completing the mission for the first time will give a large reward with a unique item, repeating the mission will give a smaller reward.
    The Device is a melee attack, reskin of Defensive Combo which deals Magic damage
    I'm interested in this, is this perhaps a hint for future Elemental-Magic melee revamps and mechanics? 👀 👀 👀 👀​​

    The thing is they could just replace all with devices, charge for said devices and have them character bound. Then you could not sell said powers and would have to replace the ones you have at every level. This by the way would be a bad thing as then each person would be needing to make zen or questionite or what ever just to get the money in game to get their new powers. I hate devices as you can not trade them or sell them if you decide to change something. Powers they way they are are good but power re placers is a round about way to pay for a look and has no effect on the game mechanically. They are just money grabbing here and don't think any new power sets will come out and we will have crap like this tacked on to stuff. Too bad really you would think they would try and fix the game and not gouge the player base further with this crap.

    Uh, what? And people wonder why I think this phrase is over-used BS.

    It's a device you get for FREE by playing a story mission.

    The *Sash* and *Buckle Square Large* (for males, haven't checked female) have been dorked up on the last patch.

    On the Buckle Square Large, a new bump texture has been applied to bothand, the 1st color channel has been swapped for the 3rd color channel.

    The Sash appears to be defaulting to the same texture map as the Buckle Belt with the same color channel changes, but the textures don't match up properly and the tie-ends of the sash have mismatched colors and textures.

    The way the patch notes are written it makes it sound like Witchcraft will be giving 2xp out for the week. Some of us in my SG went to find her at 7:45pm Eastern Monday night and she is missing/ gone already. It would've been nice to know how long she is/was going to be around to avoid confusion. (or this could just be a glitch and she is supposed to be around until Thursday morning but either way she is still not in Ren Cen.)
  • jaazaniah1jaazaniah1 Posts: 4,262 Arc User
    Clear communication regarding when events/activities begin/end has never been a CO strong point, even though it should be one of the most simple things to do.

    The way it's written suggests that she is at the very least supposed to stay until the event is over.
