  • Ok, then why isn't Underdark/MazeEngine/SOMI/RD in that list of "needed campaign currencies?" I've helped those I just listed plenty. Restricting the list to pre-SH assistance is seeming a little outdated at this point, no? What's required by a SH isn't in order on the way-too-tall campaign screen, or anything that makes…
  • The new SH skirmish won't really help with what I mentioned above: doing that skirmish won't help with campaign progression one bit, unless they're planning on handing out Arcane Magical Writings, etc from doing it. My time ingame is limited. I am not part of WhaleGuild(tm) that is at SH20 and where SH tasks are a fun…
  • I'm going to put in my $0.02 on this issue: the way I see it, most other mods have been complete-able during that module, or shortly into the next module. Strongholds, especially for small to medium sized guilds, is a multi-year slog. And, this basic point: The design of the SH grind means that it's an exclusive-OR with…

  • Not quite correct. US Thanksgiving is on the 4th Thursday in November, visit that link for the story involving the changing dates thru history. As to the subject matter -- price of cwards -- the NPD group has a new report out noting this key paragraph:
  • It would be great if there was a weekly way to get more influence. For example, the first Dragonflight of the week gave a 2K influence as a bonus. Dragonflight is like a HE, just .. bigger. Right?
  • One more potential option: Blue/Green gear from the AH and/or drops. Probably the weakest, but usually dirt cheap to free.
  • The nVidia experience tool will "helpfully" optimize your Object & Character texture level up to 200%. That causes textures to not load often. Drop it back down to 100% (in the advanced tag ingame), and that made the problem go away.
  • I'd think there are some PS4/XBoxOne optimizations that could usefully feed back to the PC version. Using Microsoft's Task Manager, the NW client is a 32-bit process that rarely takes up more than 2 cores (50% of CPU on a 4-core box, 25% of CPU on an 8-core box). The PS4/XBoxOne consoles are 64-bit boxes with 6-8 weaker…
  • How about this change -- which could be done in addition to the blind auctions: - Canceled Auctions take 5-15 minutes to have the item returned to you. By in-game email. This would reduce high frequency trading, still be usable. And the delay could be blamed on Valindra/Tiamat/etc.
  • And what point are you trying to make here? That prices are still "too high?" Too low? Something else? If you have a price that you think R9s "should" be at, please state that number, and why. We can't read your mind. For things like R9s, that are pretty much made and not dropped, Cryptic essentially sets the price. I've…
  • I'd suspect AH bots, always ensuring that they're the LowPriceLeader(tm). I've seen things where I post something that's a bit under, and within a minute, the previous cheapest has undercut again.
  • Anything down this long wasn't someone tripping over the power cord. Makes me think some problem was noticed that's going to take time to fix before they open anything back up.
  • Trying to play with monetary policy to affect prices isn't really going to have the intended effects -- there's too many whales out there that can still distort prices. A simpler-- but so far unused -- approach is basic supply & demand. Right now, epic mounts are in the 10 million + AD range. That is because Cryptic keeps…
  • Any keybind for summoning the VIP travelling signpost?
  • I had one (account-bound) drop in one of the Dread Ring lairs, with an adamantine glove, in the last 10-14 days. Sorry, probably doesn't help you.
  • The option to delete your character can be done at any time you want. If you chose to apply it after character death, who am I to judge? (Protip: we'd appreciate it if you also toned down the judging) Failing that, you could always force yourself to gift off AD/gold/whatever as a death tax.
  • It's probably a case of the Osborne Effect. If marketing tells people something better is coming soon, sales of existing things drop off. Dramatically.
  • I also think some of the massed zombies are due to the gate guards not going back to their posts when idle. I've seen a bunch of times the guards are strung out on the paths near the gate, then 20+ zombies at the gate. The guards are too far away to deal with the zombies, and the zombies just mass. Solutions to the above,…
  • The runestones question has been answered. But, what to slot in my angel's "___ of the loyal commander" items is still a bit of a mystery to me. I've got 3x "___ of the loyal commander" items. Would slotting +power in the offense slots be best? Power+Critical strike? As to defense slots, should it be some combination of…
  • I wonder if some of the high AD costs aren't moving because some bean counter thinks it would affect Zen purchases. Let's list some of those high AD costs (aka "sinks"): Companion upgrades: Zen store item for companion upgrade tokens exists. (Can't seem to find it right now, though -- maybe this is in progress) Campaign…
  • Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ to test your connection -- see if there's a problem between some nearby server and your end. For the record, I'm seeing a great connection via speedtest, and a moderate-to-poor connection to NW.
  • That's what the logos say on startup. But, for many months now, most of the dungeons have been removed, and only Heroic Encounters added. As for dragons, those don't seem to be removed. The Stronghold has an every-2-hours event to hit dragons, but 1) that requires a lot of single-target DPSers (TR, GWF-centric), 2) That…

  • Running eTOS last night, it appeared that my greater stone of health did nothing. Just after being resurrected by a DC, I was 20-25% health. I used a greater stone of health -- the cooldown time started, the number went down. But, my health remained at 20-25%, as if it did nothing. This happened 2-3 times. What a waste of…
  • That explains the recent lag -- packets have to head out to the delta quadrant to reach the server.
  • How about an option (checkboxes) for "Allow friend requests from people in my guild" and "Allow friend requests from people in my party/I've partied with recently." The latter would allow friend requests from other current players within a PUG'd skirmish/dungeon run, and some grace period, i.e. up to 60 minutes later.
  • If you run the http://gateway.playneverwinter.com/ in a browser at the same time as the game, you can sell junk inventory items to a vendor from anywhere. As long as you can park in a safe spot in the map for 30 seconds, you can alt-tab and sell. I agree that's not ideal, but it certainly helps unload junk for game-gold…
