Re: It's gonna hit the fan

Sorry if I am wrong, but the more I read Blisters posts, the more he sounds paranoid or delusional to the point I expect them to spout some nonsense about chem-trails and UFO conspiracies. My paranoia is not exclusive of their attempts to silence me. So they are sending them after you too?? Better ...

Re: Level 1 to 70 in 16 hours, exploit or not?

But the journey from 1 to 70, THAT is where the fun is for me, and as I've only done that entire journey 1.5 times, it's like I am hoping Mod 15 will have a new Druid class so this time I can try and do it properly! LOL! :) My wife has made no mention of a new class on Preview. The real problem wit...

Re: It's gonna hit the fan

BTW Shadowblade, Craig Zinkievich left 3 years ago to work as the CEO of Cold Iron. Never heard of either of them... :? Sorry, I was confused and read the wrong user name on the posting. Oops! NW1234 was the one who brought up the old executive Craig Zinkievich. He left Cryptic and works a small co...

Re: It's gonna hit the fan

Every company has its share of disgruntle employees. Cryptic apparently more so, the source code for both Star Trek and Neverwinter had to be leaked from an employee. You cannot get your paws on it any other way... well probably breaking and entering comes to mind, but that is over the top. The sour...

Re: It's gonna hit the fan

Really? I wish there was something to automate Invoking and Professions in Neverwinter. One of the conspiracy theories around Zone since launch is that PWE themselves are the bots and gold spammers, in order to stem income loss: they know that some players will buy from pirates and other 3rd partie...

Re: It's gonna hit the fan

Here is the link to the changes he is talking about. First this is not a punishment. They are trying to cut out some middleman steps. Instead of buying a ring for seals --> salvage ring for RAD --> convert RAD to AD. They are selling the RAD for seals. RAD is in the stores and chests, which eliminat...

Re: Playing NW in a Window

I don't use the Arc Launcher, I use the old default from Cryptic. See here at the bottom is "Command Line". A long while back (sorry memory is fuzzy) I could add something in there -winmode? followed by 2 numbers and it did exactly what you are asking. I just cannot recall the exact word and how to ...

Re: Rumours of Bans for some exploit or other (hunts I think)

My wife told me the other day, she noticed a steady decline in people wanting to hunt in Ravenloft. She assumes it is from them plugging up that leak. Most requests on PC now are for Major and Minor Heroic Encounter. I believe they were busy the first few weeks just getting the instances to align an...

Re: Playing NW in a Window

I recall there is a parameter for the launcher under options at the bottom is command line with an input box. What I don't recall is the exact verbiage. It was something like; -windowmode 800 600 or -windowed 1024 768 Ask around the game or search the forums you may find it. But it isn't something I...

Level 1 to 70 in 16 hours, exploit or not?

Somebody posted this Guide on the Forums and it works. Question is this an exploit? The title suggests you do this during a double XP event. But I tried a new character fresh off the beach. I used Azure Enchantment rank 6 and 7 to get 34% more. Even without the event bonus, you can get any character...

Re: SKT 30K VB runs?

The random generator Cryptic is using has some long streaks in the bad and good luck, this is why I believe 1,000 to be a good sample size. I figure at most there is a 3% margin for error. So far the testing with the common trowel is picking up 1 artifact per dig as I suspected. The percentages at t...

Re: SKT 30K VB runs?

As with the Remorhaz those items have the odds listed. So I really don't see any need to test them? Test 1: Common Trowel only used to dig 1,000 relics. This will be to get the base score for the other items to be tested. This is underway but due to the national holiday of workers, which we celebrat...

SKT 30K VB runs?

Been doing some research and thought maybe someone here has the chances already calculated. I was watching an XB1 player video, who claims 30K per hour. However he should not say "per hour" as this is based upon far too many factors; mount speed, relic availability, map, player skill to navigate, et...

Re: Scammers

I see these campaign completion tokens both in the AH and in the Zen store. I don't know when they introduce this $100 Campaign Bundle but a person could convert 5,000,000 AD into 10,000 zen to pick that up, break it down and make a profit. But those are actually useful items. Whereas the crap campa...

Re: Scammers

I am not sure I would call this a "scam" just a buyer beware sort of thing. I was online this weekend and asked where I could get more companion tokens to top off what I didn't spend on my companion already. Someone told me about a pack sold in the AH. However they all sell 45 tokens 750K AD. It tak...

Thanks Burlyfish, as I am just here debugging some graphics issues for the Play on Linux development, I fully realize there is certain unknowns to me.

2 Million Dragons Killed in 5 years?

My wife is bugging the shit out of me about the trivia given by the Harper when you did the 2nd year quest. The Harper states the game has seen over 2 million dragons die. The math breaks down like this: 2,000,000 / 60 = 33,333.3 per month 2,000,000 / 260 = 7692.3 per week 2,000,000 / 1826 = 1095.2 ...

Re: Ugh, joined Reddit getting beat up

No problem, you took time to explain where the AD comes from, all they did was beat me over the head with there is (something) better around the corner at level 70. Typically all PWE MMOs, I have tested for Play on Linux, thus far, seem to "push" players to max level. They all seem to have some simi...

Ugh, joined Reddit getting beat up

I posted this on Reddit and getting shot down by elitism... New and Need Astral Diamonds? Kill a dragon! I keep reading that some players are upset about the 100K cap next month on refining RAD (rough astral diamonds). I seriously doubt new players make 100K RAD a day. But if you need AD and are new...
