New Staff Members
Earlier last week we added several new CSR Guides: Kaelyri, Khikik, Medris, Sunderfury. Give them a /wave if you see them ingame! We also promoted Llandris to full GM, and Menden to Senior Guide. Congratulations!

Temple of Veeshan
 

It has been clear for some time that the current situation in Temple of Veeshan has not been optimal. Numerous guilds are flocking to this zone upon repops, causing mayhem with so many players grouped together. To make matters worse, pulling mechanics have been mastered to the point where raid mobs are able to be isolated from any and all trash and brought all the way to the zone in. It is the staff's opinion that these encountes were never designed or intended to be trivialized in such a way. While the act of splitting does take some careful coordination between a team of pullers, this is just one small part of the raid and leaves everyone else from having to do any work or experience the rest of the zone.

Thus, it is our intention to return the difficulty and spirit of the zone for ALL raid players and to force raids to crawl to their targets. To that end, we are implementing a number of changes, some of them we will specify here, others we will leave to be discovered.

The following Raid Mobs are now Permarooted (Note that this list DOES NOT match up with what was permarooted on Live during Luclin; That is intentional): Dozekar the Cursed, Lendiniara the Keeper, Gozzrem, Telkorenar, Eashen of the Sky, Aaryonar, Lord Vyemm, Lord Koi`Doken (Fight in the water you filthy animals), Lady Mirenilla, Lord Kreizenn, Dagarn the Destroyer, Lord Freshlak, Lady Nevederia, Vulak`Aerr.
Due to these changes, Vulak`Aerr will still spawn as normal but will NOT be attackable or aggroable until all the NToV dragons he formerly called for help from are dead.
We have also made changes to trash mobs and their chasing behavior, as well as further bonding the dragons and their guards together (Awww :D). There are one or two other changes to increase the difficulty of the zone and encounters as well.

All current raid rules will remain in effect in ToV. This means that your raid force must not have a presence in that raid mob's wing when it spawns. If you are in a wing clearing to one mob and another spawns, you may still kill the original target mob but then your entire raid force must vacate the wing before re-clearing to the new raid mob. Yes, that means chose your raid mobs carefully if there are other mobs in window.

As usual, we encourage guilds to work together on raid target selections. Leapfrogging, while technically not against the rules, is still an asshole move.

We look forward to seeing the raid guilds tackle the new challenges and will make further adjustments as necessary.

Thanks for your work guys.
Unfortunately it seems to have rendered me unable to login. It says my spell files need updated but the project files link in the 'Getting Started' guide lead me to 404/not found.

Were the TOV changes implemented on Red as well? Guilds on red can just PVP over the zone which is a healthy alternative to the toxic FTE culture we're seeing on blue.

TroubleBound 04-07-2019 08:36 AM

Oh wow i am retarded, the first sentence has a link for the new files.
Thanks for your hard work guys
