  1. We will see if and when CF launches. If Elysium keeps to their end of the "deal" then, maybe we will have what we are hoping for, I just don't want them to change their minds halfway. Since they own the project they can do anything ya know. Only time will tell..
  2. I've also seen other servers having gold question mark "complete" quests, probably stock mangos/trinity fix, guess they couldn't figure it out either. Take care in the woods, and try not to aggro many mobs okay? Although, it would be interesting to see how the charge mechanic works IRL, wonder if you would fall through the ground until you reach the core
  3. Keep up the good work CF Team, we're with you!! All this "code here, SQL there" made me hungry for some reason but also confused me great, glad I'm not doing programming But even I can see how these slight bugs could affect the server in the long run and that the TBC testing will help Vanilla also. Now time for some vacation...
  4. My advice: Don't get yourself hyped. Go do other things and take your mind off CF for a while but keep it in there just a little bit. That way, you won't feel down if it doesn't launch anytime soon. And it won't trust me, development takes lots of time.
  5. Enjoy your holiday Elicas, hope to see you around when CF launches. We will miss you and appreciate all the effort you made for the cause
  6. I've also been busy with work, studies and all manner of IRL things but I always check back on the forums from time to time. I have learned a long time ago that you have to take everything with a truckload of salt. Only trust someone as far as you can throw them and that is usually not very far. Happy to hear that things are progressing towards the goal and I think I'm not alone here in saying that I don't care for a 2017 release. Quality over quantity always. As for the beta testers becoming inactive or leaving. Just get new ones, I'm sure the initial sign-up created a huge list of people willing to help, even if they are not as good as the first group, they might end up being more reliable Oh and, Asura = Batman confirmed Use some repellent on that reddit-shark
  7. Very nice update @Darkrasp! I would just like to repeat myself in saying, the fact that the CF Team stuck together in these difficult times and persevered means a lot. It shows your determination and ability to the entire community (and outside groups as well), which in turn, will make our support for you greater. Keep up the good work guys! And srsly, take a holiday or two off
  8. I was in a very strict but efficient guild in Wrath. There we had DKP AND a loot council of 3 raid leaders + the guild lead. It worked out pretty well I have to say, although the basic problem that you guys described above happened here as well. We had a few people, who were there on all the raids, since they had all the time in the world and not much loot would go through that barrier of DKP Bu the Loot council would override them often and it was pretty fair. In a corrupt atmosphere it won't work, I agree. Although I believe that if someone is there all the time, they do deserve something.
  9. Perhaps there is something to the "odd numbers help with votes" thing. Personally, I feel 5 is the right number, it's just right for a group. Why? Well, you need a tank for all groups or they will be short lived. A healer is also essential. But their damage is so low that they need some help. 1 DPS is not strong enough. 2 is pretty decent but there is not much room for variation. In a D&D setting, you would like to have a rogue for unlocking doors, chests and finding traps. But it's also good to have another, say 2h warrior to dish out some damage and also take a few hits himself. Well, then you miss out on the powers of a mage, which is realy useful. Either way, 5 allows your group to have a more generous number of class variations. That's what I think.
  10. Huh I totally missed this new development. TBH all of these things are happening so suddenly that I stopped trusting. Too much talk of "transparency" but actually there was never much of that from Elysium. It could be just an excuse to do this, not necessarily but I would not be surprised. Going OS makes sense though, seeing as without any outside help they can't fix their own core. (Nost, CF and now this) Since the start of Valkyrie it took them like what, 7 years to get nowhere and use a supposed stock mangos core that they renamed. Before you bash me for all this, I have seen some bugs on Elysium which are exactly the same as on other stock servers: mobs pathing in the air, dropping combat, no rare mob loot etc. Maybe the players can fix what they can't? This is the last time I make a post about anything Elysium related, especially here. I think we have wasted enough words on their incompetence. And don't believe everything you hear about this leek
  11. I also want to be early on the vanilla realm like OP but I'm going to be PVE. A fresh start in a new comunity is all I need It is always a good idea to think of class and profession combos, because money is what you need most of all on a new realm.
  12. I waited patiently for several days for the wonderful news I hoped was on its way and I was not disappointed! Not only, because I wanted to hear these exact words but I also thought that this was the only good solution: Tank all that drama to the face and keep going. This shows how powerful and resilient our CF management team is and you have my respect @Asura @[email protected] and all the others! PR really goes a long way if you let the community know that you value their opinion and listen to it. And this update really hits it home! About Discord: I thought it was a bit distracting and making the forums emptier. Glad that it is being done away with, nothing lost really. As for keeping up a Vanilla realm IF there is a substantial player base still there - it is awesome. I will be sure to keep a few characters around if I feel like it. The only thing I wish to add is that the cross-faction BGs would be a wonderful idea. No, I would even say, necessary most of the time. I have been on too many private servers, where players would switch factions en masse because the other one was winning more games. This eventually causes the whole PVP scene to die a one sided death, sad as it is. And I am not even a PVP fan but this has always bugged me as a problem. The solution might not be simple to make but it is worthwhile to consider. So, thank you again for this much anticipated update and I will be here, continuing to wait patiently

    I support this thread! It was a wonderful read! Especially in the beginning, with what the Tank's duties are. I'm also pleased that you take the time to explain the importance of Mitigation > HP. Obviously you should have a minimum amount of Health to no get instakilled but after that, mitigation goes a long way. Every little bit counts. Just to add something, although I already made some posts about this in AOE Tanking, that Demoralising shout also makes threat (I don't know the exact numbers) and is useful to supplement your AOE threatmaking on larger groups. Shield spike also does wonders in the same situation - better for trash groups but use enchants for bosses.
  14. I was overjoyed when I read that announcement. From the first moment this LGN stuff started I thought of: Crestfall is jumping into this way too quickly without thinking through, what this move will cause. And surely enough, there was a lot of anger and resentment. I never heard a SINGLE good thing about Valkyrie, even before they became Elysium, so I was baffled why anyone would want to work with them. What is obvious is that their team is incompetent and they are trying to gain expert help from other, more successful project (Nost/CF) and they still fail miserably. Not to mention all the gold-sellers that are running rampant on their realms and nothing seemed to have ever been done to get rid of them. Well, now we know why. Funny thing is, I can remember that the CF staff had high opinions on Shenna before the LGN was formed and now look at that nice post, bashing the community for their own failures. Applause! Great PR I have to say! I hope that the CF Team has realised now that they do not need other projects - certainly not failing ones - that will drain their time and resources.
  15. Yes absolutely, the Paladin Threat is too great and they must be destr.... wait... oh that's not what you meant... uhh I meant they make great threat of course heh.. heh.. But on a serious note I like this clear breakdown of all the abilities and when to do what. Also, I appreciate your, making the group's needs a priority. Always a good sign. I would like to add the usefulness of the Engineering profession Grenades, as they can help tremendously with some extra threat for saving all that precious mana. Bombs too of course but they are less cost effective and with slightly higher cooldowns.
