Broken Loads Thread

Postby Gormal » Tue Jul 11, 2006 7:57 pm

Things that don't seem to load any more:


Muspel Invasion - Basinet (for sure) also check silvery bracer, fingerless gloves, and supple belt of stone (though I think this is just really rare)

Smoke Invasion (not sure if its broken or just hasn't loaded but its been a while)

They say Faralee isn't broken, but I've been trying to find her for 5 years and havn't, and I already know where she loads. Quests steps that are clearly described by one mob, that people would HAVE to ask others where or if something loads are silly. Even load an alternate one that says to you, 'sorry, I'm too busy to deal with this matter today' or something just to make the quests not seem so stupid and based on what your friend knows.

but pat u know i've found faralee at least 5 times now.... *whistle*

yes she's hella rare...also..when she does load, some individuals just quest her with the first stage anyway, which can be accomplished in all of 5 mins... so a little self defeating.. just make kri'it the quest mob for gods sake.

I can't remember the exact name of the mob, but it was something along the lines of Phirrus. Anyhow, he loaded in scorn... at least... he used to. Haven't seen him load in 3+ years.

I know she loads sometimes. The point is she is the end mob for a quest you could complete 100 times before you find her. I've been looking for her most of this wipe and not seen her and I'm pretty good at finding stuff. It ruins the well written quest if the end is impossible, which is what it would be without being told where to sit every boot by someone who knows where she loads.

This is the mob for a flaming longsword, which is a very classic old weapon which could be given a neat proc and the load fixes, I think its Phiraz maybe.

Load rate for Phiraz was set pretty so. Bumped it up a tad.

The way Faralee loads was changed. She will load more often, but it can be any time throughout the boot.

There were changes to the load rate of muspel invasion a long time ago which likely made the last two stages way too rare. Hopefully thats been fixed now.

Smoke invasion loading is ok. Just been really bad luck loading.

These changes are all in.

Please check on those specific items loading, especially basinet and silvery bracer. I haven't seen basinet load in what over a year?

Those items were from the last two stages if I was reading the file right, so adjusting the load rates should get them loading again.

It is not really broken, because it loads, but iceberry for relo is really bad.

There are some that check jot (for regular rares), and checking iceberry is a natural part of that. That means there sort of becomes a monopoly on it.

Mabye do that thing where it loads late in boot? Or even up loadfactor and put it on a mob that you don't solo, like thyrm.

I'm not sure, but I found it with Ross in a wierd room this week. We weren't sure if a mob picked it up or it can load in random rolling hills rooms... I assume the former but who knows.

Mobs do pick it up, at least fensirs do, as that is one way you can still locate
if a fensir picks it up

In the Faerie Forest there's supposed to be a "Radiant Opal" somewhere... either it doesn't load or it loads but the door is no longer functional (some people have thought it's behind a hidden door that's either a (null) or it might be like a "rowan" but with no key to unlock it at a place in the Faerie Forest). This is almost a pointless item, except that it's used in a quest on Moonshae.

Along the same line, there used to be a cloak of forest shadows around Evermeet somewhere that no longer loads. I actually have one from someone who was just gonna throw it away, since it's statless, but it is an old nostalgic item I used to wear as a monk back in the day.

The radiant opal doesn't load behind a door. And the last time I picked one up, while being about a year ago, it was still loading.

I'd searched high and low for the opal a long time ago, and the people who I'd asked indicated it was behind the door. I really don't care to know where it is specifically, and ultimately it's just a trinket really, but it holds a special place for me in that for my first 19 levels as a monk, I held one (screwing up my punch dice to be 1d1, which I saw when I got level 20 ;+P).

So if you could confirm that it still loads, that'd be cool.

While I'm not with areas, my study of the muspelheim loading for the equipment pieces mentioned above indicates that they do have the ability to load.
