Producer's Letter: Torment of Velious Beta [Discussion]


I think he/she is asking either How many times it can be traded before its claimed. If the first trade locks it down, or if its like Kronos where it can be traded around until its redeemed.

Or they are asking how many times they can ask for to get a copy of the tradeable expansion to give out.. which would be once. And you get it on launch day"


It can be traded until it is claimed. So I supposed as long as no one claims it as many times as you want.

Producer's Letter: Torment of Velious Beta [Discussion]


But the question is: how often am I allowed to ask for a tradeable expansion?"



I'm sorry, I guess I don't understand the question. If the expansion is claimed on your account then you would not be able to claim the same expansion again because you will already have the expansion. Is that what you mean?

Server Discussion - Non Truebox rule set.

I want to take a minute to thank you all for chiming in, there isn't any news to share right now. But if there is in the future I will let you all know.

Producer's Letter: Torment of Velious Beta [Discussion]


I am still missing the answer =("



Closer to, this was missed. Sorry Eladamri. Each tradable in the friends & family pack item is tradable until claimed. Once the item is claimed it is bound to the account that claimed it.

Miragul Heroic Progression Server FAQ [Discussion]

The new goal is to see how many different ways it can be misspelled before the server launches.

Miragul Heroic Progression Server FAQ [Discussion]

Additional questions have been answered in the FAQ thread.

Miragul Heroic Progression Server FAQ


Q: Innothule Swamp? I thought it was Feerott?
A: It looks like our maps were slightly off, we are discussing with the mapmakers union. It is Feerott.

Q: J5 merc quest in Feerott in or not?
A: There is no change to the J5 merc quest.

Q: Do Heroic Chars come with Epics?
A: No, they do not.

Q: If not will AoCs be active?
A: When Miragul launches they will not be, but it is possible they will be added in later.

Q: Will the level restriction on Naggy and Vox be lifted as everyone is level 85?
A: The level restriction will not be lifted on Naggy and Vox

Q: What Trade skill AAs & skills will be granted? We are worried since we are all starting at level 85 so there will be no market for low level items.
A: Except in cases where there are racial bonuses, new Heroic Characters do not start with tradeskills.

Q: What Anniversary content will we have in March? By my reckoning we should have 13th or 14th anniversary content in March only but everything in April? If this is so can we spread the April stuff out over a longer period.
A: Any changes to Anniversary content dates will be universal (I.E. all servers)

Q: 17th Anniversary Gnome race is listed as no restriction on TLPs, how will this be handled as we cannot create level 1 chars?
A: Unfortunately you will not get to race since you are so heroic you'll overtake the level 1s very easily.

Q: I can create 14 chars on other servers, does that mean I can create 14 Heroic chars on Miragul?
A: Correct. If you are able to create 14 characters on one server then you can create 14 Heroic Characters on Miragul.

What's that new Forum? [Bug Reports]

I'm glad you asked forum poster!


It's the Bug Report forum, its in place to replace a fan run program DGC Issue Tracker, which has recently ended it's time. Many thanks to all the players and fans from other games that worked on, moderated, and maintained that space!



Q: What should go here?
A: All bug reports except for those related to ToV Beta, they have their own separate section for those.


Q: How does it work?
A: The ultimate goal is that it will function similarly to DGC Issue Tracker within the limitations we have on a different platform. We will be making changes as well as time goes on.


Q: Where is X feature?
A: Since we wanted to get this up for you as quickly as possible some features are still being tested and worked on, some features aren't available on the forums, and others are down the line. We will continue to test and iterate as feedback from players and developers comes in to make the experience simple and easy to use.


I know there are probably lots of questions, the ones I can answer I will, so I will leave this thread open for a while before closing it.

Server Discussion - Non Truebox rule set.


I think some of the other threads in the TLP section here should be a pretty good indicator of how people are feeling about this.

Edit: But I hope this one is productive"



They are but the intent here is to put everything in the same place.



Posted by: dreamweaver on 25 October 2019 @ 2:54 pm CDT

Server Discussion - Non Truebox rule set.

Hello All,

This thread exists for the purpose to gauge interest in and discuss the possibility of a server with a Non Truebox rule set. That being said, servers exist that fall out side the bounds of this discussion including Miragul which is launching soon. So please keep conversation below relegated to whether or not you would be interested in playing on a server that launched with a Non Truebox rule.
