Aggro Me: The Other Side of Norrath
The Other Side of Norrath
Well, as you probably know already, Live Update 7 has been on the test servers for some time now.
There's some stuff about smoothing griffon rides which I mentioned a while back and the combat changes that have the forums in a huff. I'm not commenting on the combat changes because they will not be part of the update when they go live. And who knows if SOE will change their mind about them the way they did with making quest rewards no-trade?
But then I read about some upcoming changes so revolutionary, so ground breaking that they will effect gameplay dramatically and change the world of Norrath as we know it. SOE is finally focusing their mighty resources on making the improvements people truly care about.
Yes, big asses. Hey, don't blame me, I'm just reporting. Apparently some players went to extensive trouble documenting a shrinking backside problem with screenshots and the like. Moorgard reports that some of the armor models were effecting the rear curvature.
He also steals the humor show with the great line:
*** Art ***- Added more junk to the Elven trunk.
While I am making a little light of the problem, it is true that most people play in the third person and thus are staring at that, uh, area for hours on end.There is still some confusion over whether the problem is really fixed but I'm sure they will straighten, er curve, the matter out eventually. So, if you're a fan of those with copious rear regions this is your lucky update. Enjoy.
