One Does Not Simply Ride Into Mordor

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Well, it's time to equip my ring of +12 SOE mitigation. I've been invited to attend some sort of SOE community summit in San Diego from Thursday, September 29th through Sunday, October 1st. And, yes, I am aware that the whole thing is probably a thinly veiled cover-up for my assassination at the hands of the infamous SOE ninja-death squad. But I'm willing to match my overnuking and NYC street-smarts against their dark ninja arts and hope I can make it through the lair of the dragon unscathed.

I figured the opportunity to find out some juicy information and hopefully question the SOE crew was too good to pass up. Some sort of round-table discussions are planned and I promise to take notes so I can pass on any tidbits to you, my readers. I may even venture within the dark fortress that is SOE headquarters, where my previous research has led me to expect
Red Bull and Rasterbation.

So, the upside for you is that I will probably come back with some good material. The downside is that I will be skipping the usual Friday and Monday posts. If you have any reasonable questions that you would like me to ask, post them in the comments section and I'll try to ask them if I like them.

I do think it says something positive about SOE that they invited someone (namely me) whose comments have been far less than glowing at times.

If I don't come back, you'll know that there were too many SOE adds and I went down nuking. There will be regular posts tomorrow and Thursday.

Hope you have a good time! Find out what's up with tradeskills while you're there. Namely what happened to all the planned stuff like quests and batch refines. Also wanna know what Frizznik is working on ;) he was the best tradeskill dev. And provisioner T6 food/drink is still broken with no fix in the works. (has same stats and regen as T5 but it costs 3 times more to make).

For requests, I'd like to see Druids get levitate, Shaman get shrink, and Clerics get invis vs undead. I think some of these old school utility spells might be fun to have around.

Oh, some platemail helms that have wings on them instead of nobs on top would be nice. If you don't know what I'm talking about, ask your local tank to turn on helm graphics, you'll get a good laugh.

I second the request regarding armor. True, you're a mage, but that rare t6 cloth only has +2 to stats over t5 linen, when it should have +8... They're sappin' your INT man!!! How can you be expected to overnuke when your INT is gimped?!!

i'd really, really like to know what happened to Frizznik. tradeskilling has gone downhill since he departed. it's not just that the new guy doesn't do the job as well as Frizz, but that he doesn't seem to do much at all. no interaction with the players, no updates on what's being worked on, and certainly the end product smacks of half-assedness.

if there is a simple explanation as to why there are so many gaping holes in tradeskill-related facets of the game, then let's have it, by all means. :\

if i had to narrow my questions down to something as simple as possible, i'd ask:

why aren't ornate curved and corner counters in yet in the form of carpenter recipes (as well as all the other house items removed from npc merchants months ago)?

why are the durations on so many t6 food and drinks 2hr 5mins, even when subcombines for those items have the same duration? (this is one of many, many problems listed on the forums.)

why was Frizznik pulled off something he obviously loved doing, and did very, very well? (is he even still at SOE?)

Frizz is still working for SOE, not sure what he's working on though!

Get some good swag (steal Ryan's shirt, and remind Mario he owes me his shirt from Fan Faire!!!), for contests!!
