Landmark’s patch week has been a bumpy one, with repeated downtimes that made it hard for anyone to play consistently. This morning’s downtime hoped to correct even more bugs with the latest release; it addressed chat, client crashes, autogranted claims for new characters, and creature setup.
“We’re hurrying to get […] fixes out to you before the weekend, as we feel these are some of the most serious issues,” Emily “Domino” Taylor told players last night. “We are also planning another hotfix for next week with more bug fixes, including more of the known issues listed in the update notes thread as well as new bugs you’ve reported. Thanks for all your help in finding those pesky bugs!”
Taylor also discusses the state and fate of lumens:
“We intend that lumens will eventually be possible to purchase for Daybreak Cash from the Marketplace; however, at the moment we are intentionally not selling them. We want to ensure that the economy is stable and there are no unexpected issues with lumens before we allow you to spend any real money on them. We’ll be using this time post-wipe and possibly all the way till launch to make sure that the economy is working as we intend it and that there are no lumen exploits; this includes making sure that you are able to earn enough lumens through normal play to get the items you want at a reasonable rate.”
Massively OP EverQuest franchise columnist MJ Guthrie took a tour of the post-wipe Landmark world in her stream last night.
