A fierce unicorn has made her way into my ‘collection’ – the pretty pink creature posted above. Can you spot her hiding in the shrubs? I attempted to charm her on my own but she gave me a really hard time, taking me down to 1% health. No doubt it was some sort of communication error, she probably didn’t know just how lovely my deed is, or how many other unicorns romp around the pen. Thankfully my neighbour Soleca was around to help me out. He ended up tanking the creature for me long enough so that I could cast charm and lead her home.
While a lot of people complain about their neighbours in WurmOnline, I’ve had nothing but good things to say about the majority of mine. In fact I’m in an alliance with most of them and we spend a lot of time talking. It seems that almost all issues can be resolved with some friendly communication, and some times it’s just a matter of the neighbour being too young, or not speaking much english that causes the issues to begin with. A little patience goes a long way.
Last night I was heading over to Darkpaw Bay and Moumix came along for the ride (he owns the deed next to mine). We spotted someone attacking a troll (much stronger than any of my own characters) so we helped. When the mighty troll fell we were both granted titles! It’s my first ‘official’ title on Stargrace, aside from Community Assistant. Arysh already has a title from her faith in Fo, but Stargrace is a bit behind. It will be quite some time before I can ever handle a troll on my own so I was thankful for the opportunity.
Two of the changes from yesterdays patch notes require a bit of a blurb here in today’s post. First of all, the ability to pick up empty bsb and fsb containers is amazing. Of course it did also entice everyone on server to run out and collect all of the off-deed containers that were laying around, but I don’t see that as a bad thing. You can’t put the containers in a boat, nor in a cart, but you can carry them on your person (and your person can ride a cart, for example).
Getting rid of scrap metals (directly into lumps) was a mixed blessing. On one hand it sounds nice not to have to cool down scraps so that you can re-melt them into lumps but they’re also a bit broken at the moment and some metals are not returning low quality lumps at all. On that same note any time a change like this is implemented it causes me a bit of concern because I do not want the game any ‘easier’ than it already is (it’s not an easy game, I’m just saying I don’t want it to change too much). Over all I’m pleased with the changes, and I just hope the glitch with the lumps gets solved soon.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
