Default List System Details

This post provides details regarding the /list system. The system will be hitting Beta today. There are currently only 3 item drops that are attached to this system:

Guise of the Deceiver: Level 35, Distance 150, Z Distance 40, 1 Week Lockout.
Manastone: Level 35, Distance 200, Z Distance 30, 1 Week Lockout.
JBoots: Level 25, Distance 200, 1 Week Lockout.
Rubicite Breastplate: Level 35, Distance 250, 1 Week Lockout.

Each list has a minimum level noted above. You cannot join the list if you are under that level. It also has a distance above. You must be within that distance to the mob that drops the item to join the list, and you must stay within that distance for the duration of your wait. For the lists that also have a Z Distance, you must also stay within that Z difference from that location as well (For example, in Guk Bottom, going down the hall and around the corner from the Ass/Sup Room is within 150 distance, and still within 40 Z Difference. Going several floors below the room will also be within 150 distance, but not within 40 Z difference, and you will be out of range.)

Upon leaving the range of the list camp, whether you zone out, die, or walk out of range, you will be notified that you have done so and will be given 15 Minutes to return to the area. Once re-entering the area, you will be notified that you are back in range. Going back in range does NOT reset your "out of range" timer, but rather it will start replenishing at a rate of 1 second per 12 seconds spent back in the camp. This means that if you spend 10 minutes out of the camp, and you return to the camp for 10 minutes, and then leave for another 10 minutes, the following will happen: Your OOR Timer will have decayed from 15 Minutes to 5 Minutes. Your 10 minutes spent back in the camp will have added only 50 seconds to your remaining 5 minutes. 5 Minutes and 50 Seconds into your next 10 minutes out of the camp, you will be notified that you have been removed from the list.

In order to join the list, simply enter the vicinity of the camp, and type /list. If you meet the requirements, you will be asked to confirm that you'd like to join the list. The confirmation will also tell you how many people are currently in line ahead of you. You can see your position in the list at any time by typing /list while in the vicinity of the camp.

While on the list and within range, you will be subject to AFK Checks. These are most commonly a simple dialog box to confirm, however there are several other types of confirmations with smaller chances of appearing that will require different types of inputs to confirm that you are not AFK. If you do not respond to an AFK Check by the time the next one is requested, you will be removed from the list.

The list is stored persistently in a database. If at any time the server goes down for maintenance, or the zone is rebooted, you will maintain your position on the list. When the zone starts up and is accessible again, all out of range timers are reset and extended to 30 minutes.

When the item that you are on a list for has dropped, and you are position 1, you will be given a notification that the item has dropped. If you are not in zone at the time, the system will skip you (and continue skipping people until it finds a list player in zone). Anyone skipped will still maintain their position, as long as they return to zone/range within their OOR Timer. The person awarded will be given exclusive permission to loot the corpse and all items on it. Nobody else will have permission to loot the corpse, even the player(s) that were merited the experience. The corpse will also not unlock like normal after a period of time. If the player who was at the top of the list does not loot the item before the corpse decays, the item rots. The player was still removed from the list and given a lockout when the mob was killed. Lockouts are indicated above, which means that once you have been granted an item from a /list, you cannot rejoin the same list for that period of time on that character.

So, to play devil's advocate here, what would stop a solo character from hanging out near camp (invis, itu, fd, rogue sneak/hide) and being #1 on the list, but not being able to kill the mob.
Along comes a group and kills said mob - does the solo person get the item, provided they weren't afk this whole time?

Am I reading this correctly?

You are correct. But your situation is unrealistic. These mobs will be permacamped as soon as players are within level range until the point they are removed.

So does every race get hide now? Or does this just massively favor racial hide races (especially for EE camp).

What if a group is in desperate need of a healer and there's only warriors/monks/rogues on the list 10 deep...why would a healer want to level with that ass/sup group as an example knowing they're doing so for other peoples masks?

For the xp, bag, TBB?

Also, just join the list when you arrive.

Is the lock out tied to the character that joined the list or the entire account?

I assume the lockouts pertain to each item, i.e. You get your stone and can freely move to guise without the 1 week lockout? Curious as to why not just 1 and done per account on each item feel as if the accounts that have 2-3 guised characters will be the first ones you see on ECtunnel.com. Regardless good work, would also recommend hitting these camps hard on the "boxing" checks as well. Pras Green

About how often will the AFK checks be? Should I be always loading up a camp like this on my laptop to carry with me in the event my wife needs me to say unload the dishwasher. Or should I be safe to do something like that (5-10 mins) and come back.
