I don’t want to misquote anyone, so I am transcribing the most clear-cut questions and answers. Anything else will be in the transcript video.
Question about tradeskillers making kilts and getting more styles.
Q: Freeport and Qeynos lets anyone do writs. Neriak is more picky. Gorowyn is selective as well. Can this be made more consistent?
Q: A Krono is $17.99. Why is it more than 30 days sub costs at Walmart for $14.99?
A: We don’t endorse the selling of cards in-game, but it’s a completely supported in-game method of trading in-game subs.
Q: Are you going to try to stop selling cards for plat?
Q: Can we convert blue shards (raid) to white shards?
A: Our plan is to give you stuff to do with your shards.
Q: Housing: The ability to rotate, yaw, pitch items, or lock items.
A: (We want to do this)
Q: Rangers hate transfer?
Q: Call of the Veteran is broken.
Zolt: Call of the Veteran is a very complex ability. It has all these restrictions in place. It’s very complex and there’s a lot of room for error. If you can tell us what zone you were going to, what zone you were going from, what characters, etc. They’re very very annoying bugs that we want to fix.
Q: You want us to bug report each example of CoV breaking?
Question about the raid leader sometimes not being the group leader.
A group of 6 players who are all participating will essentially get 6 times the experience.
Question about recoloring existing EQ2 items not even for PlayerStudio but just to add them back to the game.
Q: There’s only so many things you can buy from Dungeon Maker. Can we get some ultra-rare items or more rewards?
(devs ask audience: What about players being able to place loot in Dungeon Maker designs?)
(dev question: Should fluff items, rare items, etc. on DM mobs be drops or for tokens?)
[audience: Yes to both.]
Q: Have you ever considered a Want-to-Buy side to the Broker?
A: Yes. Redoing the broker system is one of my big projects that I want to get done soon. That would be part of it. Consignment. We want to clear out some of those items that have been there for 6 years that nobody has bought.
Q: Adornment removers. Crafted or StationCash?
A: Crafted only.
Q: The SOE Live-granted EQ2 Merc is that 1 per account or 1 per character?
A: We’ve been talking about this for the last couple days and we’re probably going to go 1 per character.
A: The Collector’s Edition merc was going to be a Paladin. We’re going to give you the option to get a Paladin or a healer (haven’t picked class yet).
Question about two boxing and autofollow and the person following falling off bridges, etc. If it’s really bad in certain zones, we can talk about reducing the follow distance. Maybe we can add an option to set follow distance.
Question about a daily tinkering quest. They’re looking at it already.
Q: [hope I got this right] Can we change between spell weapon autoattack or melee attack on necro pets?
A: Ask us after the panel.
Q: Tradeskillers can only request writs from whatever city they’re citizens of.
A: Whenever we look at the Adventure writ issues (mentioned earlier), we’ll look at Crafting as well.
Q: Can we increase War Runes to other slots than Belt, Charm, Primary, Secondary, and Cloak?
A: With the expansion, all raid gear will have red slots on more items.
Question about rating other players whether someone is really good or not.
SJ: That sounds dangerous.
(Dev team) We want to get more feedback from you about Dungeon Finder.
Zoltaroth reminding people about /load_friends and /save_friends commands. (audience: ooh)
Kaitheel: If you find a quest that doesn’t destroy the related quest items when completing the quest, please /bug it. We have fixed a lot of these.
We don’t support exile as a true faction. Audience actually asking for Haven to go away and exile Guilds to go away.
(Devs) Ok, you have to write the patch notes.
Q: (Can we get some improvements to the Recipes window?)
A: (We can look at that.) We can probably add a button like the merchant window to hide greyed out recipes.
Q: Can we view the last 10 recipes crafted to make writs easier?
A: We can look at that.
Q: There’s an exploit on a raid mob, who do I talk to?
We’ll definitely want to go back and do group and raid content in Chains of Eternity because the Spirit Stones (scaling green adornments) remain useful for a long time.
Looks like Spirit Stones (green adorns) are only Neck and Rings.
[Ed Note: Again, there are more questions being asked than listed. Trying to focus on the clear cut stuff.]
Q: Can we search for items by what adornment slots they have?
A: What level of granularity do you want?
A: Making the Broker search a lot more robust is part of the Broker revamp we’re working on.
Q: Every single Rapier item is a Flamberge. What’s up with that?
(To David) – In our file, we call it a sword, and then design names it.
(design) gee thanks for throwing us under a bus, Dave
