  • @sandukutupu I will be there, prepared with what i have planned and discussed with you one month ago ;). I have posted my schedule on the original thread ^^.
  • My plans for this fantastic new Barovian Bash 2021 : Two Music Shows/Quizz will be given by my bard Alinala ChanteClair, in the Tavern of Barovia (in the same instance as where Wendy is, right after her 1 hour contests/sessions). The schedule : Wendy's TimeHollywoodParis (my time)1PM10AM7PM4PM1PM10PM For each song I play,…
  • I logged in roughly 30 minutes after the game was up on Prophecy of Echoes update first day, and stayed in the Moonstone Mask the following 6 hours, doing nothing but playing music on the scene with my bard while side-watching the uninterrupted ballet of players coming in, talking to the NPC, and getting out. Some (few)…
  • The backlog peaked between 15th june and 15th july, I had noted it to be 70,3M and 69.8M between these dates. Since 15th july, the backlog is going down, but now slower than in july/august. 15th june-15th july period correspond more or less to the completion of Zen orders made 20th-22nd january (bonding stone exchange =…
  • We had some exemple of events driven by players in the past : the pvp tournament (can't remember the name of the players who had organized it) the Barovian Bash organized by @sandukutupu, etc. Some official help on those kind of events could be something interesting, in one form or another (advertising, prizes to be given…
  • I think that's an interesting point. Do a newplayer should move up "the chain" quickly, or not. I have a mixed opinion about that. On one hand, i'm an oldschool player : for me in a MMORPG the path to endgame shouldn't be straight and fast. I never expected, when i was myself a new player on Neverwinter, to be efficient at…
  • Personnally, i also love to live in a country, France, where people have universal free healthcare :). Even though i pay a lot of taxes for that ^^, and even though i barely have to go to the doctor once in every 3 or 4 years. Should Neverwinter be somewhat kind of socialist ? You must realize you can play freely because…
  • @greywynd I had the same issue when i was doing my quests for my bard in august. I just tried all the doors and one can be interacted with, even though it is not glittering as it should.
  • So far, i got an answer to my 11 tickets within 24h-96h. The longest waiting time was when i wrote the ticket on a friday [I guess the support team takes their week-end off :P]. That's an acceptable waiting time in my opinion, but i also never had any "big" issue (nothing in the "I can't log in/can't play" category). An…
  • It's not likely to decline before a long time. I have tracked the backlog since last year (every 15 days or so i'm writing down the backlog in a xls file), and we are still in the aftermath of the bonding stones sales. 1st phase was the january wall, 2nd phase is the current one, 3rd phase will be a normalization…
  • Thanks. That's your opinion (probably shared by many, i have to admit ^^). I joined a GH3 some weeks after starting the game, and during 3 years and 7 months I helped maxing it out, being 2nd in total contributions (only behind the guildowner). We debated a lot about the boons. We saw devs making some changes on them (like…
  • I think the "fair" solution to that would not be to allow guilds to build each single boon building. I kind of feel like having to choose which boons the guild can provide and which boons it won't is one of the very few important collective decisions and talks a guild leader and his officers/guildies have to debate. And…
  • I second @reg1981 . The musics are short and easy to learn, and with some few weeks practicing the bard, i can now play them with the eyes closed. It takes me between 1 to 1,5 sec to play one, and though mistyping a note and have to redo still happens time to time (and i immediately know by ear i have made a mistake), it…
  • Aaaaannddd this one :P https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2exfCIW9GeQ
  • Here is another one ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJg5ky8Y-h4
  • @hotfrostworm P&P D&D closest thing i played on computer (and kind of one reason why i play NWO nowdays, sort of nostalgia) was 2002 Neverwinter Nights in a multiplayer persistant module/server (limited to 128 connected players) named Amaris. I ended up helping as one of the 4 DM. The way this game handled "DMing", both…
  • Really depends. For a new player, 30 days should be reasonnable. For someone who is playing for more than 6 months, 90 days is probably still acceptable. For an old player, personnaly I don't mind waiting up to 150 days (= ability to get at least 25k Zen at both jubilee and blackfriday). For what it matters, i don't mind…
  • I would really prefer direct powder in the WB rather than insignas themselves, especially if your idea is to have epic and legendary unbound ones there. But it's probably better to avoid the "mark of potency" effect (though it's not as powerful as some years ago @"arkhadiam#2543" : buy with -%event/-%VIP on WB, sell on AH…
  • new "1-year plan". I'm ok with that (but to be honnest, it's because i have banked enough insignas since mod15 with my compulsive accumulation so I will be able to get most of my mythic for my main toon right away, but i also want my 2 best alts to have some mythics :P so a bit of work to do ^^) By the way, if I remember…
  • EverQuest had a solid Bard, a hybrid class/jack-of-all-trades. If I remember well (it was a long time ago ^^), he was really potent in party buffing (outdoor speed/melee overhaste), crowd controls (mesmerize/charm), pulling & kiting. In EQ2, at least when i played it, the bard was either a buff/debuff bot or a melee who…
  • è ( :P ) In order to see classes with meaningful differences and without players complaining about pure dps balance, Neverwinter has to deal with 2 core issues : - endgame content is (and was in most of previous modules) too much driven by single target fights (ToMM, Zariel, boss 2 and 3 in VoS), and when bosses have adds…
  • Notes of music aren't only defined by their pitch/frequency. Let's introduce duration and rythm rather than cast time :P. Let the song be more or less powerful depending on how well you are close to the original music score. And ban the players who are too often perfect in their song during fights.
  • At the end of june 2021 the waiting time was set to be 249d-269d for new purchase orders according to my own predictions, but it was without taking in account the BondingRunes bump nor its more longterm effects. It was obvious we would get a singularity on 21st january zen purchase orders. But there will also be a longterm…
  • Unsure if it can be "labeled" as altering the Zax, but i'm personnaly sure they "create" Zens time to time as i have directely experienced it. I have a very unique and recurring bug on my main toon (none of the others is affected) happening each year during the mascarade. During my 3rd mascarade (2019), i contacted the…
  • Ok, noted. It seems to be way more a by-pass/short-circuit of the gameplay than what was the target/hardtargetlock commands used in various "auto-aim" actions pre-mod 16 (most notable one was the DC exalt). I agree, it is trivializing the bard gameplay : you don't have to remember the musical notes, the tablatures, nor…
  • I'm unsure, will test it this week-end (despite i try to stay as away as possible from any bard spoiler ^^'). It wouldn't work if you tried a sequence of encounters for exemple, but with the bard's specific mechanic on perform, maybe... I still guess it's not done with the true official commands of neverwinter, and "song"…
  • I don't understand why thinking they may inject some Zen in Neverwinter would be linked to any substantial conspiracy theory. Can you clarify your provocation so we can troll together (i may, or may not believe/care they are) ? :P
  • Agree about the emotes ! I would be very bothered if I'm forced to type rather than one key for bowing, cheering or sleeping on the ground ! But there are also keybinds for VIP travel sign/bank/mailbox/vendors, the keybind to go back to character selection without going through the menu (extremely interesting for anyone…
