      Thank you for posting this! I could not log in this morning and could not find these updates on SOE’s website under “Game Update Notes”. The server status website shows all servers are up. Can you provide a link from SOE’s website detailing these changes?

      It’s not a nerf, it’s a fix. People who were spam-clicking the chest were seeing the item list in their chat text and then NOT getting anything. Very frustrating if you get the Chestpiece or Weapon!!!

      Look for Today’s Update Notes. Holy crap CHOICE of Yellow or Red Adorn based on archetype. I am gonna be so geared!

      Also, it looks like Brawlers still aren’t getting a chestpiece from Public Quests.

      btw on the Thunderbeards… I couldn’t get the second quest after the fix. I was in GD2. I tried everything. then i went into Thurgadin and popped out into the newer GD5 and it worked flawlessly so they don’t seem to be bugged “server wise” just “instance wise” after a certain amount of time. so I was able to finish that series. so try other instances :-)
