  • @Thjo Your "spirit of the game" argument makes sense if you consider how the game originally was back in 2001. At that time you stuck to one realm as you really had no other option other than play another server where you'd pick another realm to sti…

  • Running 7x3 buff icons is a more or less known way of "fixing" things like right-click crashes or many random crashes in general. Make sure to uncheck the 'oldest first' box next to the options. It works for me and for everyone I know that have t…
  • @Fateboi I'm confused. Are you saying that through your observations you've come to the conclusion that "IRC" likes to stick the biggest zerg and run laps around the island with them chasing lesser numbers? If so I believe you have "IRC" confused wi…
  • Why exactly is anything more than 15 minutes necessary? People say that they think it is needed but neglect to provide any reasoning for why they think so. For people that swap realms 15 minutes is quite the wrench thrown in the works, but (hopefull…
  • When people can view a video of perfectly normal gameplay and believe, nay, be utterly convinced, that cheating is occuring that explains a lot to me regarding the "rampant cheating" that is going on and Broadsword needs to get on top of according t…
  • There never was any official statement regarding the length of realm timers from Broadsword as far as I know, until now. Rather, that number was commonly hypothesized in the discussions amongst the players, where the anti-timer faction would labe…

  • Would prefer this over timers that's for sure
  • It is true none of us know what the future may hold. We do however already know with absolute certainty that no matter what the outcome is it doesn't change the fact that realm timers will be an inconvenience for some of the playerbase who likes to …
  • Having population dramatically increased by EC is an optimistic view point, one that we all hope for, but an optimistic one none the less, one there is no guarantee for. Telling us to quit crying and wait is basically handwaving peoples legitimat…

  • How about if you want realm pride you work towards inspiring that feeling in people, instead of force it?
  • Not to mention, even if you do wait 30 minutes to try and find better action, there is no guarantee that you actually will. Even the 5 minutes it takes us to swap and get back out right now the action can change (happens more often than not). Becaus…
  • Thank you for the time and effort you've put into this project. The chimp feature as well as having a place where up-to-date templates can be found has been greatly appreciated. Many a returning player have been refered to it, and it always warrants…
  • If you die to any mob that is considered a realm guard it will count as a pvp death. Such a death may not even show up in your /stats for the session, but even so it'll be added to your characters overall death count.
  • I'm with @Tyrantanic on this one. Having zerged a decent amount myself tagging alongside Rescu this last month I've payed attention to the change in the /bg numbers when a) a keep take (in hib mostly) is attempted and b) when the alb zerg whiped …

  • Seemingly not a bad idea for general purposes, but a realms over/underpopulation doesn't necessarily indicate the quality of its roaming 8man action. For instance it's common that hib has a huge bonus US time because mid and alb zergs are out, but h…
  • wasting time playing the game, not twiddling your thumbs while waiting to do so.
  • We'd be more inclined to stay on a worse realm action wise as opposed to wasting time, resulting in a worse playing experience, or log off early if at the end of the prime time. Again, it'd be manageable, but for my playstyle it's only cons with …
  • Calm down @Areir , all I've done is correctly point out that my preferred playstyle would only end up suffering if a timer were to be implemented, I merely want that to be taken into consideration when weighing the options.

  • My group usually looks to switch realm to the one with the fewest 8-mans running in order to get the most action, sometimes multiple times per night as groups split and new ones join the fray. Being unable to do this or having to wait 15-30 minut…

  • I'm personally very much against any kind of tweaking that affects heavy tanks, unless it means to nerf them. It seems most of the complaints stems from them not being as strong for soloing as they once were. While I agree that is the case it is …
  • ^pretty much this While the mezz has been initiated and then 'loaded' you may use any of your insta abilities including crescendo and even re-charming your pet (assuming you use the pulse charm) but you can't cast anything like demezz or it'll br…

  • You will get the items original skin, in this case OW mighty eyes.
  • rest assured my friend, the stealther eradication project is underway
  • got told to deal with the add in the back, figured you had hit but guess not didn't see for myself, once the rest of the group got out of RP range for the kills they were getting I had to go join them and kindly let you live, yw
  • The pet use spawns a mob that you can then charm but only lasts 10 minutes and then dies, so it'd be rare to see another minstrel run around with it. the pet is nothing special but a typical lvl 50 mob that doesn't have any special abilities tied to…
  • Thankfully the song you're most likely going to want to twist in combat (heal song) cannot be interrupted and is 2.0 hard cast, so it's feasible to find some time to refresh it now and then, power/speed isn't the end of the world to keep down. Th…

  • Doppelganger spawns? I've mapped out Jamtland where 7 spawn locations exist.
