Skywatcher wrote:The Amethyst Dragon, not to pile on, but.......when you have a game mechanic which was a source of frustration for some players (and I confess to being one of them), I can understand if you decide not to change it. But why in the world did you make it more intrusive, and more of a pain? The guards used to at least have to catch you, and if you were careful you could avoid them until you were close to a zone and evade them even if they did accost you. Now, when you walk into the zone, you get accosted, even if there is no guard in sight. And the dialog box is persistent through zones, meaning you can no longer evade them. It went from being a minor annoyance to a major pain, to the point I avoid Macedone as much as possible, and it appears you have added Mountainhome as well.

At this point, if Valeron attacks Macedone, he can have the place.

I still personally dont see any gameplay or fun-enhancing benefit to it. Never did.

Bah. That was not the intention. The code change was supposed to make the guards less intrusive.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll dig around again now.

I know that now, with the mark, no one troubles me at all ... 5k well spent, in my opinion ... of course, the question remains - why on earth would a permit-giver give a permit to a the likes of YlenethraedraUrra Lym Shurakuur?
Laughing Twisted Evil
Oh, yeah, a question - I noticed that Ylene's mark was a different color than Crideas Bane's - does this difference mean anything?

Crideas' is probably from a contingency spell (purple).

Yeah, Crid has a purple VFX from contingency, and a yellow/gold VFX from the mark.

Ah, cool ... another question - is that mark supposed to follow the pc beyond Macedone? Last night, Ylene went all over the place, and she still had the glow around her feet ... Calithia, the Vale ...
