1. If Trion prevents the usage of our old server Apex for Credits in the new Fresh Start Servers, could we still use it for patron time in the new accounts? Would Trion consider making it possible? Since the first land rush is a big deal and we're being required to make a new account, F2P players would also have a fair chance to participate in it.

2. Will there be any Tweaks applied to the Skill Queue system for high latency players?

3. If a Toggle for the NA versions of Endless Arrows/Mana Stars is implemented, would they also work with Skill Queue?

4. Are we getting the full 3.0 Patch in December, with the new flying boss in Reedwind or is that coming in a later patch?

5. Will the AH clusters in NA ever be merged into one?

I am not sure on where the Jumbo size Albino Yata came from in that castle area on Exloch on PTS. It is taller than the Majestic trees.

Khrolan, ...please add a feed of the yata revolt to the livestream before you castle smash it.

(1) Are event timers being fixed or not?

(2) What is happening with the new KR skills/Skill queue?

Can we actually have an answer please? Many of us need to know as we have been playing a broken game for a month now. Just tell us so we can decide to stay or leave please. You guys know they are broken and did not do what was intended so just let us know.

I'd like to know how the Daru weapon portion is going to work before it starts. If it's something that is more achievable for me than something like the spelling bee, then if we know exactly how those mechanics are going to work, we can make a decision as to whether to stick with the spelling bee or wait for the daru weapon achievement (for those of us who are just hoping to nudge out 3 and get the mount).

Dont you guys think that the item "Peace Treaty" is eighter TOO Overpowered or TOO cheap ? You can literally have only one person from the guild doing all prestige quests and only by spending what he gets in a day and a half the guild gets peace for 2 complete days, for me it feels like its killing the Dominions.

Is it possible to make library mats tradeable or increase the drop rate ?

supposedly the wpns are just claimed right from the marketplace and then unwrapped, so, unless they are WAY off the mark..it should just be click 15 times

Why have there been so few Labor Potion rewards from events lately? - Seriously, universally useful reward, yet not included in standard event rewards, even in Thirsty Worker's Flask form.

Now that Halcyona War timers seem to be working properly, will the Halcyona schedule be shifted so that the evening one occurs at an earlier time?

Speaking of Halcyona, what AA post about it would be complete without a request for compensation for the lost evening wars? - Compensation not only for the lost Honor, Medals, and Leadership, but also for the missing winner's buff. While some people may not really utilize this buff, there are those of us who have been.

I, myself, have been leading a group to the Heart of Ayanad, 3 runs every night since the Eternal Library Tome was returned to the drop table after the maintenance on the morning of April 21st(for those of us in the US).

Every night I would be sure to pick up the Halcyona buff(Kyrios West won nearly every evening Halcyona). I would also get the enhanced Guild Buff, use the 5 existing Loot Drop % potions, and run the Mistsong Maverick title for a total loot drop increase of 78%.

Up until the night of the last evening of the Halcyona War starting properly, my group had an approximately 41.1% recorded drop rate on the Tome(148 drops in 360 runs).

After the loss of the Halcyona buff during the time in which my group could run, the highest bonus drop rate we could attain dropped to 68%.

So using a little math:

Dividing 41.1% by 1.78 yields the approximate unbuffed drop rate of 23.1%.

Multiplying the unbuffed drop rate by the lower drop increase(23.1% x 1.68) gets us a new average drop rate, approximately 38.8%.

Multiplying our new average drop rate by 87(the number of runs we have done since losing the Halcyona buff), means we should have gotten somewhere between 33 and 34 Tomes during that time. We actually did get 33 Tomes during these runs.

However, had we not lost the Halcyona Buff, we should have gotten between 35 and 36 Tomes from those runs(0.411 x 87).

So the way I view it, Trion owes my group 2 Eternal Library Tomes.

Not that I'm seriously expecting compensation, just would like to know if Trion is considering it.

1. In game market place, or the store market place through the web site?
2. If web site, is it 0 credits, or real money?
3. If in game, are they 0 credits, or some other currency? If another currency, how is the currency obtained?

Haranya still waits compensation for minus 1 day Zodiac event. Is it being forgotten? If we don't bring up things regular you just pretend it never happened? Easy and cheap.

Oh, what is the status of that 'camera shifting up and down sitting on mounts' bug? That's been out there a long time, since they introduced that tree mount, I think. That one still makes me feel queasy.

Do you think its really acceptable that pirate alliances are controlling castles, using empty green alt guilds.

With unlimited draughts of forgiveness from the honor store, pirates can easily change their faction to join sieges needing just 24hrs notice for changing guilds , and then be back to pirating hours after the sieges end.

Can you look at implementing a multi day lock out timer against joining sieges whenever someone changes their nation via draughts of forgiveness.

Patch 3.0 question: main questline of new races give big XP rewards in low level too. Does it "new race only" thing or does it buffed in ALL races?
Example video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D65PWAeAkEw): 1000xp in lvl 2 than 1800 XP. 5400 XP in lvl 7. (End of nuian questline give us 2572 XP in lvl 28-30)

If we got enormous advantage as dwarf or warborn and nothing as nuian/elf/haranyan starting character the fresh start will be nice joke category. Dwarves will reach lvl 30 in 1-2 hours, others will reach same level in 2-5x more time.

Fix the Turkey quest, it does not give the reward sometime. And it also doesnt count for achievment.

The 2nd Anniversary so-called "celebration" is so underwhelming, I've now going uber-casual - significantly reduce spending $$ on credits/apex - use labor for tax certs - maybe due a couple upgraded house/farmers workstation dailies ... that's it.

uber-casual until v3.0 ... as I'm having more fun in the mobile game "Marvel Contest of Champions".

Is anything going to be done about the about the spelling bee quest? It's by far the hardest to do out of all of the 2nd anniversary achievement coins, and then it only lasts a week. I have 27 letters so far, I still can't come close to spelling a single word. I'm at about 8 hours worth of killing mobs. What makes it worse is that the letters actually expire after it ends, so that you can't wait until after it ends to trade letters around to complete it.

More, easier words need to be added, higher drop rate, or something.

A Daily Quest that gives us one letter of our choice would have been nice.

You didn't respond to my question about wanting an overview of the Daru Weapon phase of the event so we could make decisions now about whether to keep working on FFA or Spelling Bee. :(
