Friday Grab Bag - 10/29/21

Halloween is upon us and we look forward to seeing your costumes in RvR over the weekend (starting today!) and don't forget that the Halloween event and 20th Anniversary bonuses, merchants, and quests end this coming Tuesday, November 2nd!

Thanks, as always, to everyone for your questions! You can submit any questions relating to current development plans, to request clarification on basic game mechanic questions, or questions on community issues through the Grab Bag Submission form. For any other feedback or suggestions please use ourfeedback form.

Is there a reason why you cant just make ToA scrolls sell for even zero coin ? Its seems like a small issue but it really is pain to have to constantly drag and drop them on the floor or even constantly destroying them.

We'll see about adding this to our list! In the meantime, we'd suggest setting up a keyboard shortcut for destroying items, as this can be done just as quickly as selling them.

Has there been any consideration to increase offense keep bonus realm point ticks to be 100% (instead of 50%) to match that of defensive ticks? There can be a lack of incentive to attack keeps if there are several defenders. The time spent may end in an unsuccessful attempt with little realm point reward.

We can certainly consider this but under the current system we do want to favor incentives for defense whenever possible since they are usually the outnumbered force. However, perhaps a better long-term solution would be to base this bonus multiplier on the population of attackers vs defenders instead of hard-set values. We'll be looking into this!

When will the DF imp stores be available again? I thought these were going to be converted to BP's at some point, per the patch notes where DF was changed to a BP system...


When will the Dragonscale merchant's items be added to the bp crafting list?

This conversion will occur when the existing alternate currencies are mostly used up. Even though it's been a while, there is still quite a few atlantean glass, dragon scales, aurulite, and blood seals out there. Additionally, all of these can be converted to and from each other at the Currency Exchange NPC in each realm's capital city and used at their respective stores.

What are the exact conditions that consider a kill (or a series of kills) as RP farming? What is the precise definition of RP farming? What actions must a player take to avoid being in a position of RP farming? What actions would lead to a RP reset or a ban?

While we're happy to provide some general context, RP farming can come in many forms and is always handled on a case by case basis. It also falls under our "spirit of the game" (#16) clause in the Rules of Conduct.

In general, realm point farming could include any actions where characters are acquiring realm points without participating in normal or intended Realm vs Realm (or Realm vs Environment on Gaheris) gameplay. What this typically looks like is one or more characters repetively killing one or more other characters who make no attempt to fight back but that is by no means the only definition or criteria.

A good rule of thumb if you're considering any action that could potentially be a violation is to err on the side of caution: if you have to ask, it's probably not a good idea!

Can we see the level of a keep on the /realmwar map?
We'd love to hear feedback on this but our instinct is to keep this data hidden. It would become too easy to identify which keeps or towers to go after if players could see their levels from the /realmwar map even if it may also help defending realms to monitor their own.

Hope everyone has a safe, fun, and happy Halloween! See you in the frontiers!
