WarCry: Silencexx: Hey all over telon theres problems with the world like caves are missing for some ppl and cant go in without falling to china =
Head-GM-Moonlite: Hey Silencexx! Thanks for the question! This began today and caused everyone to look like this O_o when it was first noticed! If you do fall down and die, just petition and the GM's will refund your lost experience and find your corpse if you need them to! Development and QA have identified the problem, fixed it and at the latest will push out the fix to live servers tomorrow, if not tonight *fingers crossed* ?
WarCry: Chantillary: My wuestion is -- wat is the timeline we're looking at until diplomacy clothing can be deconstructed again?
Silius: Chantillary - There are currently no plans for diplomacy clothing deconstruction to be turned on again. Once we start evaluating the sphere as a whole we will determine where this fits in the grand scheme of things.
WarCry: darlonten: first off has any work been done on the helm and tail graphic's in game ??
GlipSOE: Helms, yes. Tails, no. Update 4 will likely have the beginnings of helms.
WarCry: Starocotes: In contradiction to the original announced principle "risk versus reward" most high quality items in Vanguard are obtained via long grinding. Are their any plans to return to the "old" principle?
Silius: All games have risk versus reward it is kind of built into the whole idea of achievement oriented gameplay. All MMOs also have grind elements to them and we will not be at a point where we will have 0 grind. We do want to make sure that whatever you are doing in the game that you do get a reward commiserate with the effort you put in
WarCry: PsiKoTicK: Are there any plans to make clickable effects (such as rings, cloaks, racials, etc) NOT break stalk for rogues?
WarCry: Pansy_Sartok: Since a new island is in the works and we hope to have a large influx of people, how will new people be shielded from the hordes of lowbie campers on the PVP server?
Silius: The island will not allow PVP until you exit. That is the current plan.
WarCry: Monarky: Why was the fungle lord taken out of the game This morning we was looking for him and he wa
Silius: He was removed due to bad data being pushed live. That should be resolved when we patch tonight or tomorrow morning.
WarCry: Krazymagic: Are there any plans to look at smoothing out character animation? Currently, if you sit back and observe characters running around it appears very "Jerky" and "stuttery" animations do not appear fluid and constant. This is one of the "ugly's" of vanguard. Is this something that could be fixed?
Phathom: I was going to prepare for this question but it got posted very fast
Phathom: so the short of it is.... We are going to work out a plan where we evaluate all of our animations
Phathom: figure out which ones are the best and which ones need to be fixed or changed
Phathom: we will generate that list and will be working with other Art teams to assist us with these to get down to a core set of animations that we can be proud of
Phathom: and instead of 1000 so so animations, we want to start back with 200+ awesome animations and build upon that
Phathom: Hope that answers that question
WarCry: Zathris: Some features were left out at launch due to time constraints. Do you see any of them returning, such as the Inquisitor adv class or the Alchemy craft class to name but two things?
Silius: There are currently no plans to add inquisitor or alchemy to the game. There are many things we have to focus on that are currently there adding new classes or trades is not something I want to think about until we get a handle on what is there already.
WarCry: whitetiger: will you be adding raid targets to already exsisting zones and mobs that have no content or loot what so ever?
WarCry: Ginil: Is regional trade gone from the game forever, or is it just a long way off?
Silius: Regional trade was never actually designed or part of the plan for Vanguard. Since the designer who wanted to do it no longer works here we have no documentation on what regional trade was or how it was supposed to work. So the short answer is right now there are no plans to implement it.
