World of Warcraft

I've been playing World of Warcraft after buying it cheap during a Black Friday sale. Most of WoW's systems are really well-polished and a pleasant contrast to Neverwinter's. However, my character just reached level 90 and started Draenor (which is not the current expansion but the previous). Oh my ...

Re: Preview patched just now

The launcher was also updated to add the new DirectX warnings. Spoofing Vista in Wine bypasses the "Don't use Windows XP" warning, but there's still a "Use a more recent DirectX" warning in my setup. I'm not going to tinker with it much for now.

Re: Could Updated System Requirenments Hint at Engine Overhaul?

The changes won't necessarily cut off the Wine users. It sounds like Neverwinter will be able to run on DX10 and Wine has some coverage there. It's an open question. However, I bought basic WoW for 5$ on Black Friday and have been having some fun there. I'm not sure what I'll do when the free month ...

I made that web.archive.org link! People started predicting that the post would be edited, so I figured a record would be a good idea.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving and a Stampedey Black Friday

On Black Friday I'll be getting runic bags, bank slots, preserv and coal wards, a half dozen rename tokens, and a bunch of keys. Anyone else indulging in some credit card therapy this Friday? What are you getting? I bought so many rename tokens during the previous Black Friday because of that annoy...

Interestingly, nitocris83 doesn't have a #0000 suffix despite appearing to be a new account. By contrast, mimicking#6533 and wakeupparamour#9775 have the suffix.

Path of Least Resistance Not Intended

From the NW.70.20161025b.11 patch notes: "The Runestead fishing spot was primarily intended to be a place for collectors to catch types of fish exclusive to this area. Its emergent use for map farming was not intended." This is further evidence that not only do the devs not play their game, they don...

Re: Q&A With the German Community Manager and Thomas "Mimic King" Foss

For the winter event: There will be a new mount and some other additions that are currently wrapped up.
Hmm. The Winter Festival's description in the calendar doesn't mention this new mount.

Re: Wild guessing about what broke the Auction House

The AH will definitely be back but I wouldn't be surprised if they add even more restrictions. "In addition to the Astral Diamond cost, posting an auction now costs one Sea of Moving Ice fish."

Re: Wild guessing about what broke the Auction House

The official reason is in: "We intentionally took it down due to botting activity that we're still looking into." http://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/neverwinter#/discussion/1225351/ I don't understand how botting became an issue in the middle of the night. I guess they have an automated shutoff if th...

Re: Wild guessing about what broke the Auction House

I don't think we have a baseline if this is only AH messages, or if Cryptic's system/NPC messages from redeeming codes and levelling up also count to the total. From my own testing a while back: 1. Character-targeted mail (like promo companions) counts against the auction limit. 2. Account-targeted...

Re: Wild guessing about what broke the Auction House

By new mailbox limit, I meant the Sea of Moving Ice patch note: "There is now a limit to the number of unclaimed items a player may have in their mail. Once this limit is reached, the player may no longer post items up for auction until they claim items from their mail."

Re: Wild guessing about what broke the Auction House

It can't be bots. The devs solved the bot problem by killing the Gateway and requiring accounts to complete 5 of 7 quest chains before being able to use the Auction House.

Wild guessing about what broke the Auction House

http://i.imgur.com/EyzoE5z.png The AH is down on the PC server. Apparently it has been down for hours. Let's guess why! Maybe the recently-added mailbox limit is somehow exploitable via overflow or underflow? I doubt the devs would suspend trading even if someone found a way to get countless auctio...

From my play on preview, I thought the Bottles were BoP. I guess my memory is wrong. It's so weird that you can sell them.
