    Message #28809 Sent By: (aetolia) Received On: 12/11/2014/17:20 "You have been given 1 racial relic pieces for your cryptic chest purchase." What does this mean? Should I have recieved one for every chest, ie was it bad to buy chests in bulk? Should I have been receiving these earlier?
    @Oleis @razmael can you clarify what this is? I want to buy more chests but I'm holding off until I understand how the relic piece with purchase works.

    @Moriean:

    Announce #2285, which is related to the July chest promotion, states: "And lastly, if you purchase 15 or more chests at once, you'll instantly receive a racial relic piece - one per 15 chests."

    I think that's still the case this time around.

    Ah cool. Thanks for clarification. I wish I had bought mine at once and not staggered now. >_<

    Any chance we can get fuse chestpieces or something similar to assemble a cryptic chest? Right now the syntax is 'fuse piece' but due to all the relic pieces, you have to shuffle all of the pieces in your pack or somewhere else in order assemble a cryptic chest.

    You can just do fuse (piece number) and it'll snag 3 chest pieces and fuse them. IE 'fuse 2355239'

    The grammar seems weird and/or contrived for the fire kick (fairly sure the hyphen should be comma) and some of the voxes. What's even weirder is that 'vox list' doesn't even show the full message lines for them.

    Why is that weird? It cuts off, just like DESIGN LIST will cu toff, or WARES THINGS will cut off (especially if they have dye tags or have weapon stats at least).

    Elemental shadow does not work it seems?

    With cloak up:
    A cloaked figure is here, hidden. He is riding on the elder dragon, Re'augar. He wields an ethereal scythe drenched in shadow in his hands.
    You see a single exit leading up (open pine door).

    With cloak down:
    Dominus, Prince Riluo Nebre'seir is here, hidden. He is riding on the elder dragon, Re'augar. He wields an ethereal scythe drenched in shadow in his hands.
    You see a single exit leading up (open pine door).

    It doesn't bypass hidden, cloaked, or shrouded. Have to be fully visible before the elemental line will show.

    Well that just seems pointless as all hell.... thanks for the heads up.

    @Razmael, @Oleis pretty please to fixing this oversight :( it just screwed over 90% of the darkside who bought chests in bulk for the item.

    Maybe fix it for the shadow shroud only? I can understand being wrapped in shadow tendrils and hidden. But I find it hard to be hidden if you're glowing with light/fire.. surrounded by orbiting rocks etc. That unicorns is sorta noticable.

    Someone who wants it not to show could just...remove it.

    I suspect it's more to do with code and how QL lines are formulated. Similar overlapping issues have been noticed with visage, defilement aura, etc.

    um, if you want to be noticed for your fancy line, shouldn't you be... not hiding?

    If it's an issue with overlapping QL lines, could just make it so these specific shrouds append a line after the normal one.

    Moirean is here, hiding. She is wreathed in an shroud of shadows.

    Something like that.

    Hiding isn't just an aesthetic thing or a sneaky RP thing. It has a combat impact, as it hides you from who here unless someone has heatsight/lifevision, which is a distinct tactical advantage in a fight (especially if you are a class that can strip defs). I don't see why people who have combat defs up should be excluded from using a promo - and it's rather tedious to emerge/rehide constantly (and impossible, in the case of woodlore hide, as once hidden you can't emerge).

    Sometimes RP has to be sacrificed for combat and vice versa. It's a nice sorta thing in my opinion, maybe it will make people choose when they want it on. Sorta wished there was something like this on the lifer side to make so people aren't on it 100% all the time.

    Did we find out if the elemental shrouds have a means of being turned off?
  • RiluoRiluo The DoctorMember Posts: 821 ✭✭✭✭
    As much as I am respectful of people's opinions on things the shadow_shroud oversight is a utter pain and make me rather ferocious to say the least. As players we should not be made to remove aspects of our defences to utilise a item we paid for. It just seems absurd and a redundant circular argument consisting of do X to override Y, when in reality Z is the issue here, not X or Y. I amongst others would like to see this tweaked pretty please.

    Now in terms of the rp angle it makes all the sense in the world that we remain hidden and still have the shadow in our "room appearance" as we are beings of shadow.

    Please @someone fix the dodgy elemental shrouds they do not work if you are hidden, a defence used by a LARGE portion of players.

    Does anyone know if there is an answer to the question @Roux asked?
  • DristinDristin Member Posts: 625 Immortal
    I do not believe there is a way to turn them off at this time, from what I understand.
