Lore request - The Lost Shores

19 November 2012 - 08:53 PM

Normally I can keep up reasonably well with lore. But unfortunately this weekend's event had issues. I missed the beginning because of work (no biggie). Got home and got into RP, then people wanted to hit the new dungeon, so I wasn't able to start doing new quests till late. Progressed in the Investigation till hit the Asura in Caledon who was bugged.

I had plans on Saturday and figured ArenaNet would have the bug fixed by the time I got home, so I logged out. Got home the next day to find that the quests were gone, and the only reason one of my characters finished the Investigation was because he had already started it.

A wee bit frustrating, as I'm sure many of you also feel.

I have very little idea what actually happened. I've gotten bits and pieces from various posts, but there's still details missing. Just for example, I know that karka attacked Lion's Arch and the Lighthouse is in ruins. But... that's about all i know. How many karka attacked? Where did they come from? Who was there? How were they beaten back? Etc.

SO... I was hoping that people could explain things so that those of us who missed parts of the weekend could catch up. Being that one of my character is from Lion's Arch, at the very least he would have been aware of what was happening, if not actually involved in events.

Anyone else RPing that Halloween in Kryta has gone horribly wrong?

My bard, Nicolae, knew about the history of Mad King Thorn (like any good bard should) from GW1, and even wrote a song about it. At first, the season was all fun and games as it has been for over two centuries. But when the doors started appearing spewing small armies of candy-corn men, he started getting pretty worried. Then, yesterday, ol' pumpkin head pops out of the Lion's Arch fountain.

As one can imagine, Nic went from "pretty worried" to nearly needing a change of underwear.

Most people I see in the game are just running around having fun. But I have a hard time believing that people would be "having fun" with all that's been going on. Admittedly, not everyone is a roleplayer, so I don't expect everyone to RP. But among those of us who are roleplayers... anyone else acting like what has been going on is not good?

Thank you, ArenaNet, for all the hard work you're putting into GW2

We had high hopes that the launch of GW2 would go relatively smoothly. Obviously, that did not come to pass. But you've had a monumental task making the game. Since launch you've had to deal with hackers, botters, exploits, issues with guild functions, the Trading Post... the list goes on. I can only imagine how many sleepless nights your people have had in just this past week.

So, thank you. Despite the problems, what does work has been a lot of fun. I'm patient, and will enjoy what is there, and am looking forward to what will be there. And hopefully the issues can be worked out soon so you can get some rest.

Fall to inglorious death again, or RP?

11 August 2012 - 04:13 AM

That was some pretty severe lag during today's Stress Test. Poor Willow fell to her death a few times trying to reach a Vista point in Lion's Arch. But then she found.... PEOPLE!

It was fun to finally get in some RP, even with the lag and occasional disconnects. It's funny how a theoretical personality gels once you actually start using it. I think perhaps the highlight for me was when a lady ran up to us asking for help, and an Asura with us responded "Help? Medical attention? Possible research material?"  I love how some of you have already gotten into the Asura mindset.

Though if you're one of the (un)lucky ones to have met Willow, when GW2 launches the next time you see her she'll look quite different (I kind of rushed through character creation the first time) and her name will sound more like a "proper" Sylvari name, but it'll still mean "willow", and she won't have a last name. My other characters will still be from the Tregarde clan.

Add "notes" to Guild Member lists

25 July 2012 - 05:26 AM

One thing I like about the Guild Members window in EverQuest 2 is that there are small areas under a character's name to add notes - one that the player can edit, and one for officers. They both come in very handy, Since in EQ2 guild membership is by character, we are able to put in notes like "Tregarde alt" to help people keep track of who is who. We can also put in a note to let others know when someone will be away from game for extended periods of time. And so on...

During the BWE I noticed that the windows that listed members would show their character and their account. The reason why I'd like notes here is that there are times when someone switches characters, the only way to keep track of who is who is by their account. But sometimes their account name has nothing to do with any of their characters, and so it creates confusion.

Being able to add some sort of Note, attached to their account, would help a lot. Just as an example, if a note said "Tregarde from EQ2" no matter what character I was on would mean that people would be able to tell when I swapped characters, instead of having to ask "who are you?"
