Lodestone deliveries knocked out the last few days (one is pending final transfer but the resources are in hand at destination)

A little side trade in T2 recipes and Expendables has developed ... Dreamless will make a decision whether to get in this business or not depending on how hard it is for non-settled players to find these items ... more to come on this

Thanks for that list, Cal. The mob I just killed was indeed the first High Priest I had seen there. He was red, just like the knights, Adepts and priests, but he did have a bit more hitpoints. Still dead with 3 arrows though(Overdraw, Exploit, Exploit).

So does a T2 mob have to have a special name? Or a certain level? Looking at that list, I am fighting mostly level 4-6 mobs, I think.

Edit: Thanks, Nihimon, that would explain it. The High Priest undoubtedly was level 7 then.

yes i got Cotton Twine +2 from a moloch

i assume it must have been a priest now that i read this thread but can't remember as it was a bit ago

Theodum looked proudly at his collection. Slowly it was growing. Just earlier today Jazz Strongblade had uncovered a large box full of unresearched pages in the back of her vault.

It had taken Theodum the better part of several hours to categorize them and to add them to his existing collection.
There was still a lot missing. But slowly all the text got rather more complete and in most cases he had now at least half of them.
He even had several spare pieces or duplicates. Maybe he should invite other researchers and collectors to join him in the Emerald Lodge and to exchange knowledge and duplicate pages.

** spoiler omitted **...

Dreamless has a gazillion of these, and hey a delivery that would only need one toon, sign me up for that!

I was working part time on Dreamless time
My boss was Master Xander
He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
'Cause I'd gathered too leisurely

Seems that I was busy doing some node gathering
But different than the day before
That's when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She walked in through the spawn door, spawn door

She wore a Purple Sobriquet
The kind you find in E E 4
Purple Sobriquet
I knew I wouldn't wear T2 chain much more
Purple Sobriquet
I think I loathe her

Built like she was
I had the nerve to ask her
If she planned to do me any harm
So, look here
I left all the loot from my husk
And I went running
Down by ghost town Terra Firm

I said now, a gazillion mobs never turned me on
But something about the spells and her mixed
Shhheeeeeee wasn't to bright
But I could tell when she conked me
She knew how to give her conks

She wore a Purple Sobriquet
The kind you find in E E 4
Purple Sobriquet
Throw that longbow plus three out the door
Purple Sobriquet
I think I loathe her

Was screaming through the local barn
And the horses wonder who you are
Her stun spell drowns out what I can see
You feel like you're seeing stars

Listen
They say the first time ain't the greatest
But I tell ya
If I had the chance to do it all again
I wouldn't change a thing
'Cause baby I'm the fastest
With an ogre as deadly as she was then

The kind you find
The kind you find
Oh no no
Purple Sobriquet
And if it was warm
Where have all the regular spawns gone?
Yeah Purple Sobriquet

I think I, I think I, I think I loathe her

No no no
No no no

Purple Sobriquet
Tell me
Where have all the regular mobs gone?
And if it was EE3 there wouldn't be as many more

Despergobbo,
why don't you come to your senses?
You been loit'ring town fences for so long now
Oh, you're a sly one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you
Can hurt you somehow

Don't you draw the Queen of Thornguards, boy
She'll cleave you if she's able
You know bandit recruits are always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some piles of trash
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get

Despergobbo,
oh, you ain't gettin' no younger
Your pain and your hunger, send you to our home
And screamin', oh screamin', that's just red-shirts dyin'
Club-wielding newbs walking through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold in the winter rime?
The snow won't slow your breedin' time
It's hard to tell the male gobs from females
You're losin' so many gobbos
Ain't it funny how they never go awaaaaay?

Despergobbo,
why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from our fences, we'll open the gates
It may be rainin', but we'll put a roof up above you
If you'd let somebody loot you
{Let somebody loo--ooot you}
You better let somebody loot you
before it's too-oo-ooo-oo late

We have a separate thread for auctions

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

1 person marked this as a favorite.

WHO: Dreamless - An Independent Resource Company - "We don't sleep until we provide you with the resources you need."

WHAT: We are True Neutral - We provide resources to your door for recipes, items, (eventually) training, and silver. Obviously you can come get them for a better price. We have T2 gatherers in all four resources and always looking for help there. We have some of the refining and crafting classes covered, mainly right now to provide melee and ranged Weapons and armor to our guards. We seek to establish more of these and the rest of the crafting/Refining list. We are a PvE group who hunts escalations and gathers while out. We usually have a gatherer go out with us as a "mobile bank" to store our goodies as we hunt so no running back to town when that T2 recipe pops in your backpack. We very rarely go out JUST to gather unless we have two orders at same time and a deadline. We PvP when guarding shipments (which happened yesterday to a couple "unfortunate" ambushers who saw what they thought was a lone target). We have been ambushed successfully too in PvP. Our company lists 12 members and we have at least that many unlisted for delivery anonymity. We have full members and we have sub-contractors. Chances are you (or your settlement) have dealt with us.

WHERE: We are independent and thus not attached to a settlement. We have purchased and (will) have small holdings in several areas around the entire map.

WHEN: We are mostly US, but some of our members have work schedules that have them playing at non-US prime times thus we have pretty good coverage.

WHY: We provide a "family-type" atmosphere for gaming in a persistent world. We make gathering "fun" by meshing it within PvE AND then the PvP of transporting goods. If you don't get excited carrying
or guarding a resource load with a worth in gold pieces and making a ten hex dash through the wildness of the River Kingdoms then that's okay. We understand you don't want the hassle of doing the above and thus would like us to provide that service for you.

HOW: Contact Xander ingame or coach on paizo forums for a) joining or; b) sub-contracting; or c) placing orders for delivered shipments. You can join us and AND still join a settlement either at the same time or later when you find one that suits your needs. We will try to establish a settlement ingame (Which may mean a "new" settlement or "joining" a "dead' settlement and reviving it) if GW will allow as we were huge backers in the Tech Demo Kickstarter and Crowdforger Guild in the last Kickstarter and have purchased several small holdings. During the Land Rush, I personally was in a very tragic fitness training accident that led Humpty Dumpty to be jealous of my jigsawed left and right scapulas, and thus we missed out on settlement stuff which with a four-digit $ investment was ...ummm... unfortunate *grim smile*. But this company, which set the resource market on one SWG server of tens of thousands, is here to stay and is looking for new members.

Lastly, we own the rights to a VERY intriguing domain URL and will hope to put all of our company information on that soon

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

This auction was completed successfully with a bid in recipes and silver

Thanks for all the bids, we can trade coal without auctions so send your orders in for a pricelist

we Currently probably overpay for recipes we need, so that is an option

Next auction to be for 100 lodestone

I will post the particulars later today, but am currently writing up our company recruitment thread.

If you are both in the same house, and you both crashed at the same time, why would you rule out your ISP? That seems highly correlated.

ugh sorry i shoulda clarified WHY i stated it wasn't our ISP

because third member in house was not at bank (nor even in Marchmont) and played right through no burps or hiccups

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

also i should point out my companymate was in the same house as me :)

so it definitely isn't heat/fan related as that would be too coincidental to happen simultaneously

both machines run this game very well and stay frigid

it wasn't our ISP

we were both in Marchmont and both near Bank

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

ok, just crashed again for third night in a row

my PC desktop is as cool as the underside of the pillow so it's not heat/fan related

my companymate's crashed too

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

from Jan 26 til last week I had zero problems (GeForce 750 GTX)

last few nights around evening time US crash at bank in Marchmont or at Smelter, Armorsmith at Marchmont

Motto - "We don't sleep until we provide you the resources you need."

alternate motto - "If we can't get it, it doesn't exist."

Dreamless is celebrating their GRAND OPENING with an auction:

#1 - an auction sale of 1000 coal DELIVERED to the highest bidder

please PM your bids as we don't really want folks to know where we are delivering 1000 coal (talk about walking nodes lol)

minimum bid is 15cp per unit delivered, buyout price is 22cp per unit delivered, recipes can be taken in lieu of a portion of the payment based upon a pricelist - auction ends 02/17/2014 at server downtime - Dreamless reserves the right to sell in lesser quantity being as though we don't know being the first auction if this is TOO BIG an order

next auction or outright sale will be 100 lodestone or 200 gems

post here resources you would like to see gathered, we have tier 2 in all 4 categories

------------------------------------------------------------------------
in the land of encouraging the formation of Wal-Mart vs Microsoft vs Google, we will strive to remain a mom-n-pop five-and-dime neutral trading company

we believe we could be viable with a working Auction House but that is not to be (as of this time) so we have to goto the forums

if PvE and gathering/refining/crafting is up your alley and you too want to shop in the downtown areas and join us, send me a PM

Re: a toggle - There kinda is one. You just trash what you don't want, and gather full encumbrance loads of T1.
Which does, however, deplete the resources in the hex, even if not taken. Those of us that are conscious of diminishing resources shudder at the thought. And it doesn't help with the time consumption. Going from two of an essence in every node to one of that essence in every node still means that you have to find twice as many nodes, even if you aren't taking the extra material.

it does deplete a hex, which is why it is important to move around. But you gather faster as you rank up, and get more mats of all types as you rank up, so I think the real 'problem' here is stopping at rank 7.

I do not want to see gathering optimized for min-max or 'spendthrift' builds.

thanks guys

that makes me understand the reasoning behind it a little better

i did go out with him last night and gathered in about 20 hexes

mostly the same but a couple i wasn't getting many T2 if any

and it seems that it doesn't affect some mats as much as others

20 hexes and one night and 4 hours is not a big enough sample size, so i will keep at it

that's right savage, i will not train after midnight anymore LOL

oh and another late night too-tired thing is the scrolling Circle button is a couple millimeters away from the "TRAIN" button ... that happened to me too but it was Bluff 1XP so no biggie but WOW THAT COULD HAVE BEEN A HUGE mistake rofl

so maybe GW can move the scrolling circle to the left side of the training pages like it is on other screens OR institute a "Are you sure" second screen

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

I agree Gol

i am more mad at myself than anyone else

long gaming day bled into the morning and that half asleep decision to train and just didnt study enough

which is strange for me because i am an XP miser trying to spend them "perfectly"

just thought that a toggle may not be a hard code implementation but maybe it is

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

thanks Cal! are you offering up your ingame time to help me swap 1000's of units of resources from my alt to my Gatherer!!! (of the resources that he is trained to gather

kidding kidding hehe

on my Gatherer/Refiner i have taken enough battle skills to wipe out low level mobs so i dont have to "hit-and-run" gather which i suspect the 100xp guy would have to do

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

I have a crowdforging idea: what about a toggle switch for T2 gatherers who want to collect ONLY T1 materials on a particular gathering trip? ... this could be a daily switch that resets after server daily downtime

I have played MMOs before as you can tell by my favorite tongue-in-cheek MMO saying in the thread title above. But it is supposed to be me getting a laugh out of others using that statement not me using it myself!!! :) ... Simply put, I can't remember where getting better at a skill through training up leads to a complete bottoming out of the results of said skill?

I know you will say "the economy will adjust", or "trade for what you need", or "when T2 mats are needed you will be fine." ... but I mean just logic would tell you that if yesterday I am an expert (Level 6) at gathering T1 mats, that I would "forget" where to find them today as I get better at gathering

I wish I had paid attention to sspitfire's warning about "DO NOT TAKE 7th LEVEL IN GATHERING" (I paraphrased that but he was so right) I didn't play in Alpha because my PC's GPU was inadequate so didn't "learn" this earlier...

...or I wish I would have just played a refiner and kept gathering at bare minimum...

...or i wish GW can put me back to level 6 in that profession (and even keep the 8k XP as my punishment for not reading the tooltip that explained what kind of issues this would cause ... oh wait ... lol nevermind)

OK that last was tongue-in-check but maybe an "Are you sure you wanna do this?" question after you hit the level 7 training radio button woulda made me pause

Now, I like the game so far and am in for the long haul but my gatherer/refiner is now stuck and I can see where OE folk would rage quit if they weren't big forum readers and just expected skill to get better as you trained up.

He can't make much of anything because he gets T2 mats at a vastly higher % that T1 - again again I know people are thinking about posting (This is a community game, trade for what you need blah blah blah)

actually I was just kinda perturbed as I'm pretty laid back, but I made the mistake of an experiment with my DT 100% pure rogue who I don't buy ANYTHING I don't need XP-wise - I purchased level two in the same gathering skill and went out AND BLEW AWAY!!!! my level 7 gatherer in the needed mats by a factor of 7 to 1 per hour and the rogue had ZERO encumbrance bonuses so had to run back to town to unload so the ratio woulda been worse

So to my friends ingame, i may beg you to trade with me ingame for resources gathered from my 99% XP rogue build to give to my T2 gatherer so he can get back to work refining
------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S. i re-read my long posts just to edit and did so here and when i read the last sentence it just boggles my mind that I need to do this, so i don't know any ideas right now other than the one I emboldened in the initial sentence. - does anyone else have any crowdforging ideas that could fix this or like the title is this "feature" okay with most here? And if so can someone explain why this will all work out.

thanks in advance :)

Atheory, you would have LOVED playing in Neverwinter Nights ALFA server ... it was permadeath

My PC lived 3 real life years and was an 11th level cleric of Tiamat

you played like you would if YOU were the character and not just some random pixels that could respawn

so we want to talk about how this game is grouping, play a permadeath NWN server and solo was asking for trouble

you just didn't stroll into a cave "to see what was in there" LOL

Unbreakable 4 is 8 hours of XP.
I'm not liking this answer very much. The question is "What about people in lighter armor?" Your answer is "It doesn't take long to learn to use heavy armor." There have to be some valid reasons to use the lighter armors, and valid ways to survive using them, or GW might as well not have wasted time creating them.
There's also the issue of arcane attack penalties and lower effect power with arcane attacks when using heavy armor. Those aren't yet implemented, but they make the Unbreakable idea less viable. Also, the loss of dedication bonuses.
what are these exactly? ... first I've heard of em
They're not in yet, so we don't know specifics. But the basic idea is that if all of your slotted abilities are from the same role (class) then you get a bonus of some form. It's to prevent dipping in other roles to make characters that are more powerful than single role characters.

ok whew!!

as long as the dedication is in the slotting of non-dedicated and not in the XP purchasing of non-dedicated

cause i dun broke that dedication long ago!

in PnP i only play single class types, but since Ranger, Druid, Pally not in yet I've just been trying to "create" them using what we have

There have to be some valid reasons to use the lighter armors, and valid ways to survive using them, or GW might as well not have wasted time creating them.
There's also the issue of arcane attack penalties and lower effect power with arcane attacks when using heavy armor. Those aren't yet implemented, but they make the Unbreakable idea less viable. Also, the loss of dedication bonuses.

what are these exactly? ... first I've heard of em

Yes - it is the opposite. As a settlement leader I try to hoard recipes - so when a new member comes around I give him as good a selection as possible.

There are 17 (?) crafter and refining roles. You have a drop rate of 1 recipe / 50 monsters. So chances are against you if you need 850 monsters killed before you get a recipe that belongs to the correct craft.

I have used the AH and I got there key recipes for the settlement. But again - I spend 5 minutes to scroll through everything available and buy every craft that the whole settlement needs. Some day this can be armor - some day it is a refiner.

That leaves bartering. And once again you are up against people like me who have needs for a dozen crafters and get recipes from a dozen PvE players. So traders will more likely come to me as they have a higher chance to make a deal.

Don't try to outcompete a settlement as a single player - you can't.

yep not trying to thus my "will take .00102% of the market share" quote above lol, just trying to figure out what to do now because I usually play one of three roles (Druid, Ranger, and every once in awhile Paladin) so just piddling in the meantime til they come out and thought i'd try crafting on my DT alts

and the emboldened above, perhaps ... but i may just give them real USD on paypal for all the AS recipes ROFL ... then they have a decision to make...

PAY TO WIN!!!!!!!!!!!! *removes tongue from cheek*

I believe Recipe Drop Chance is in the neighborhood of 1-2%. You really need a large-ish Settlement donating Recipes for common use to have any chance of getting all the Tier 1 Recipes you need quickly right now. Once the Auction House is more functional, I expect folks will be able to buy most everything they need, but right now everything is still being built up.

hmmm ... trying to start an armorsmith on MY DT account ... for hours and hours i killed a bazillion mobs last night and was wondering about drop rate for recipes?!

i got 4 out of 100's and 100's of looted items (0 armorsmith)

i understand "this is a social game" etc etc but didnt know that even just to get started you'd get stuck without being able to craft and would have to seek out others for recipes

all four starter cities NADA on recipes on auction house

or maybe i'm doing something wrong and there is some "free recipes" other than the bodkin arrows from the tutorials

don't want to bother this thread with my newbie questions so would a lovely armorsmith not afraid of a casual gamer taking 0.00102% of their future market share please PM me my next step(s)

and as for this thread I will purchase or trade for any armorsmith recipes

thanks in advance

I'm givin' 'er all she's got cap'n! The thesaurus only has so many words and I've used all the cool ones already! :)
Wait until someone has to localize the keyword system into another language! Some languages have a lot fewer synonyms than English.

LOL x2 at Karl and Stephen!

@ KarlBob i didn't even think about the keyword issues when you put other languages in

@ Stephen and i understand the coolness rating HAS to be factored in *grin* it's just that perhaps to alleviate confusion with the keywords/combat mods overlap in Karls example below:

KarlBob wrote:
Perhaps not the best example, because while Precise and Penetrating can be used as Keywords, they're also the names of combat modifiers.

...could make it a "no-no" to overlap same words across differing game mechanics (so in above ... PRECISE combat mod and ACCURATE keyword and PENETRATING combat mod and PUNCTURING keyword)

what they are changed too not as important as just changing them to not overlap IMHO

that said, i like complex games and i love PFO's system in place

just trying to help

P.S. ... i still think sharpening the editing on the ToolTips, while tedious work, would make things SO much cleaner and allevite some confusion

For example, the Precise Keyword doesn't make your attacks more likely to hit, and the Penetrating Keyword doesn't make them bypass armor.

The only thing that matters is whether the Keyword gets matched.

Perhaps not the best example, because while Precise and Penetrating can be used as Keywords, they're also the names of combat modifiers. When they're active, the Penetrating modifier reduces the target's defense from armor, and the Precise modifier increases the attack bonus (making full damage and critical hits more likely).

On the other hand, the Flexible and Supple keywords on +2 and +3 suits of Soldier's Chainmail armor do not have specific effects beyond matching their counterparts in certain armor feats, like Archer.

Edit: I just meant to suggest that you should use keyword examples that aren't also the names of combat modifiers. Then I got confused myself, and had to go double check that those two words actually were both keywords on one hand, and modifiers on the other hand.

Edit2: Goblinworks themselves undermined the idea that "Keywords themselves don't matter, they could be A through Z or 1 through 100, so long as they match," when they used some words as both Keywords and attack modifiers.

well I'm not a coder, but seems this would not be too hard to fix

hopefully GW will because Keywords are currently frustrating at best and a thesaurus is all that would be needed for more words to bring across what they are saying

i'm hoping they will just "click" the more i play ROFL

maybe even more that is adding to the confusion is what looks like mere copy/pasting across different text editors that gives an amoeba-like look to the Tool Tips

I am a school teacher and if a student turned that in - in 3 seconds it would be back in his/her hand to edit

surprised the format of the tooltips passed muster of the editor with the ready-for-intro stamp to sign off on those

of course these seem like easy fixes too

other than these minor glitches, loving this game so far GW!!!, love the XP system - it fits my personality AND fluctuating time constraints on my gaming

Keywords always get matched in pairs. Attack Feat Keywords get matched to Weapon Keywords. Armor Feat Keywords get matched to armor Keywords. Expendable (Spell & Maneuver) Keywords get matched to Role Feature Keywords.

When you train a Feat to a new Rank, you'll often get an additional Keyword, but you won't get any benefit unless that Keyword gets matched.

The more Keywords that get matched, the more powerful the effect.

so safe to assume from the word I emboldened from your quote that you don't "Lose" once-held keywords of an object when you up its rank?

keywords accumulate hopefully on an object so you don't have to time it where you uprank equipment simultaneously right? ... cause that would be a PITA

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

what is Threading?

if I bind my soul to a shrine will I still lose everything out of inventory?

and I have seen the Keyword guides for beginners, but has anyone made a Beginner's Guide to the Keywords Beginners' Guides - like step by step ROFL

Great place to start, as well. It will walk you around the starter town and give you lots of useful info about what the different feat types do.

It's received a fair few compliments, so I guess I did something right with it :)

DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DELETE YOUR FIRST CHARACTER! The only possible way you can screw up your first character is by deleting it. So don't do it! Period.

Already did a fast read through that Morgan, and on the second time through now going more slowly trying to let it all sink in

it is an excellent resource

we have all our DTs set up and locked in and i threatened em with removing their gaming computers from their life if they ever touch the DELETE, CREATE, or SET TRAINING buttons on the entry screen :-0

Silver Crusade Goblin Squad Member

yes and i knew better than to use the term "can't max out" but did anyways

hard to shake 20yr old MMO habits

so Alexander Damocles saying "most efficient" is how i meant the 2a, 2b, 2c questions to read

Druid/wizard would probably nail the concept with the familiar/animal, but druids probably a ways away

I figure some of the other classes/roles not in game will probably be held for OE for a boost to help with the inevitable concerns over new players who think they'll be behind

So a few 'new' roles at that time can be advertised as everyone being on equal footing even though we know that you can catch up fast in this format, it'll still help in recruiting

But maybe some'll be in quicker? Hopefully Druid is one of the first

River Kingdoms with no Rangers and Druids seems missing something

anyone have any ideas on how to create a TT equivalent of the PFRPG Witch utilizing the roles and Feats and skill purchases in PFO?

my teenage daughter would look to me as a hero if I took information you provide me here and I went to her with it as coming from her smart father/DM

thanks in advance!

Ahh I get it ... So I actually have not included what should have been a more detailed options for your twins?:

PC 1: Combat/Gatherer
PC 2: Refiner/Crafter

or

PC 1: All Combat
PC 2: Gatherer/Refiner/Crafter (or is that too much to ask to be all 3?)

which leads to Question #2a

how many is TOO many gathering roles to have on one PC before you can't max out in them?

I mean i figure with a family playing, one PC can go to Rank 7 to get tier 2 while another stays at rank 6 to keep getting mainly Tier 1 goodies

Question #2b

how many is TOO many refining roles to have on one PC before you can't max out in them?

Question #2c

how many is TOO many crafting roles to have on one PC before you can't max out in them?
