Yes, I'd say this is the biggest Game Update since launch.  I was pleasantly suprised to the content additions to crafting and diplomacy, I had thought this 1st round was solely adventuring.

Now, if I can just find a way to take vacation on Friday so I can work on my level :)

Oh wow. I literally just ventured into this section to see if they'd raised the level cap yet. What a lovely surprise.

Time to dig out the box and grab me the latest CoreUI (assuming it's still around).

I'm really enjoying DroxyCore (CoreUI3 and DroxUI combined), it's working very well for me.

 

I understand that someone is keeping CoreUI3 up to date as well.

Way ahead of you mate. Already decided to give DroxyCore a go first, but got the 'new' Core as well just in case :)

Launcher says the servers are up (my toons were/are on Xeth) but I'm getting the 'Waiting on response from World Servers' message at character select.

Maybe they realise that my dinner time is in 20 minutes and decided to keep the servers down until after then so I don't get distracted.

OMG I'm not temp banned again? WTF?? This day does end in Y right?

5/19/09 11:14:51 AM#7

based off the official forums there's alot on unhappy going on due to alot of the changes made this patch...nerfing ranged weapons, nerfing rogues to needing daggers in main hand, tombstone accelerated rot, the list goes on. 

And as usual, Silius is ignoring what is being posted that he wants to ignore and only giving his normal sugary sweet "I know something you don't know" replies which normally means it's worse than those posting believe.  Should be fun. 

And at something like 6plat per 55 ability, plus farming drops to combine for it (from what's being posted by ppl who hit up test server)........yeah, the official forums are interesting right now.

I use Core and really like it.  Drox is alive and well again too.  HOWEVER, Core does have some glitches with it, like occasionally wiping all client side hot-bars :( and a small memory leak.  It also has a lag component which makes it very difficult to react to mob buffs, debuffs, actions etc.  We relly on our default UI folks to call stances, shields, furies, rages, exhaustion, weaknesses, etc. because they will see it before the custom UI folks do.  And 1 second lag can wipe the raid.

As much as I like the utility of the custom UIs, I'm considering just going back to default.  The other draw back is that everytime there's a game update, you need to wait a day or two for the custom builders to release the UI and then cross your fingers that when you install, all your previous keys, alignment, arrangement and macros (some can be very lengthy) to still be there.

Are macros/keysets stored locally now then? That's gonna take a while to set up again - I have a lvl 50 in every class, and as a programmer with intimate experience of SOE, I'm somewhat prone to fiddling with UI coding. Always nice to have a good base to launch from though.

 

I have to admit that I'm not liking the sound of the spell costs. My VG knowledge is over a year old though, so hopefully money is easier to come by. I'll not make any decisions until I see for myself anyway :)

The tombstone rot needs to be done.  It can currently be exploited, meaning people leave tombstones in hard-to-get-to places to bypass fighting to certain areas.  (Edit: And Tombstone Banking).  They rogue change is not fully understood, our rogues have the opinion that it's a good thing if the damage-check works correctly.

If you read the 'entire' cost for post 50 spell/ability thread, you would see that those may crafter recipe prices (they are sigils)   I'm  not positive, because I didn't spend time on test, but folks are posting that the spells/abilities will continue to be rare drops of bosses and they can also now be crafted via the Sigil recipe and obtaining a rare gem in PotA.  Similar to a Brainfreeze.  In APW, the Brainfreeze recipe drops from bosses, but is useless until unhexed with a tormented soul.

Now, if it is the case that my level 51 spells will cost 1 plat each and my level 55 spells cost 5 plat (grand total of 23 plat) , I guess I can live with that too.  I've accumulated 11 plat since launch without any real effort.  I'm leveling a crafter right now and could make money that way, I'm a max-skill harvester and could make money that way and I could return to regional trade routes or selling information as a diplomat.  Others that have been questing in the Shores of Darkness make great money by electing to pocket the quest rewards instead of buying the tool to open the crates.  We have one guildy (who plays a lot!) that's accumulated over 100 plat in SoD since beginning the faction and quest lines.

I believe there is a set of hot-bars that is stored on the server side, so if you log in someone elses account for example, you'll see those hot-bars.  Then there is a set of client (local) hot-bars that is saved on your machine.  For example, I have the G15 keyboard and have done a lot of healer targeting, healing, etc. macros with the additional G15 keys.

We have a guildy that made his own UI and tried to base it as much on the default as possible so it doesn't require a new install everytime a game update comes out.  I know nothing about this kind of stuff, so I'm clueless to the effort it takes.

 

With regard to the cost of abilities/spells.  Even if those are end-user prices and not the crafter recipes, it's not that difficult to make that kind of money any more.  If you are a crafter, then you are probably sitting on more plat than you know what do to with anyway.  If you are a harvester, well, it's time to start cutting down some trees.  If you are an adventurer, then Shores of Darkness is probably your best bet as the quest monetary rewards are fantastic.  If you are a diplomat like me... eh, might have to work across all the spheres for some income.

I have tried several different UIs but have ended up with ManicUI w/ MaddyCraft added in. It feels similar to the default look, doesn't overwhelm you with 5000 options and seems more "snappy" than bigger ones like Drox. Try Manic before heading back to the default UI. You might like it.

I'll do that.  The single biggest thing that keeps me with Core is the healer hot-bar.  I've never played a healer in any other MMO but the Bloodmage in Vanguard is too damn fun.  I don't think I could survive without the healer hot-bar... for any single raid member I have 14 different spells/abilities that I could use on them to just keep them standing and without the auto-target feature of the hot-bar, I don't know if I could pull it off.

I'll try to remember to post a screenshot of my CoreUI tonight when I get home.

Time to dig out the box and grab me the latest CoreUI (assuming it's still around).


 

Here's a screen shot of my Core set-up.  It's been over 2  years since I used the default UI that I can't really compare anymore.   I run in 2560x1600, so I can get a lot of information displayed and still have a very large area for game play.

Silius reminds me of the Kid running into the fourms With kis fingers in his ears Screamming LALALALALALALALA And Eyes closed. Posts then runs away...

Vanguard Really Deserves better.

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude; greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Awesome! Tons of content.

No extra cost, basically a free expansion.

This will counter anyone saying this game is on life support or is going no where.

Well done VG!

Wear protection when fighting undead in PotA.  There is a communicable disease that starts there but then spreads from player to player.  It's a little bit like the electrical charge that can infect a raid and it will keep jumping from raider to raider zapping them until everyone else gets far away from one another to allow it to dissipate.
