    ATTENTION: New Rule

    From now on, whenever you post about 'casual' players you have to use the word 'hatfields' to refer to casual players. Whenever you post about 'hardcore' players you have to use the word 'mccoys' to refer to hardcore / high tier players. EXAMPLE: 'The nerf to Thazeran's tower means that casual...

    It's been a good run

    I don't think this post will come to a surprise to anyone, given my general absence from the forums and game, but since people are still asking for me, emailing me and in general seem a little confused about my exact role in the server as of late, I thought I'd make this thread. As of today, I...

    Vendor / Banker Character Names Discussion Megathread of Happy Fun Times

    In the past we have ignored names like 'guildbank' and 'wizaugs' because it was generally local and low visibility, but with names like that more and more taking over auction and the listsold, we are going to start cracking down. From now on, there are no exceptions to the naming policy, and any...

    (Dawntide) Working as Intended is hiring

    Just wanted to put this up here because I've gotten a few questions from SOD players about whether WAI is hiring. Go to the Dawntide page and click the "We are hiring" link for details. Please note for those not familiar with Dawntide that this is not SOD-related, and are actual paid...

    Dawntide screenshots

    For those of you following Dawntide, we've just released the first batch of screenshots that at least partially resemble what the game world will look like on release. Note, however, that they're still lacking polish, and this is no way final. Click me!

    a humble suggestion

    I have long felt that <MY CLASS> is sorely lacking on the raiding scene because while <ABILITY MY CLASS CAN DO> is useful, it is not nearly so useful as <ABILITY OTHER CLASS HAS>. I am basing this fact on the fact that while browsing the forums today, I saw at least one guild willing to recruit...

    Special edition guild-specific raiding mobs

    To reduce the very valid complaints about how there's no raiding zone that drops every piece of loot in the game, gives you archaics, is situated right next to athica and is never occupied by another guild when you want to raid it, I'm making some raiding mobs that should be ideally suited to...

    Update on Dark Rot

    Here's the deal: I've been stupidly busy ever since shortly after I put in Dark Rot, and despite my best intentions I haven't been able to find the time to implement the Hierophant war parts, and I probably won't for another week or so at least. For this reason, I will be removing dark rot from...

    Just a little notice about codexes

    I halved the amount of exp required to max each codex, because it was set to twice the amount originally intended. So if you progress into a codex doubled, no reason to bug report it.

    HoTs and the song box

    On account of dark rot showing us how tight buff slots are, I am going to authorize this one single movement of a spell line into the songs box, which has been request before. Heal over Time spells will now use the song box. Do not request any other spell line ever to be moved into the song box...

It has been revealed that the architect of this plague is a lieutenant of Kaezul, known as The Hierophant. He resides on a heavily fortified island outside Ikisith, and two things will be...

As part of this, I'd like to put together a larger alpha testing team for stress tests and finding glaring errors and crash bugs in the client and server...
