    Funny thing is that I just listen to Sword of Midras audiobook and they mentioned about Midras and Midmaer area.

    The way I read their post is that they are referring to character LOD. E.g. in Owlshead you walk back three NPCs (guards?) and the framerate drops to a few frames per second. I don't think they are referring to Unity here (Unless Unity 5.4 somehow doe some automated LOD calculations).

    There was LOD improvements on guards and other objects in this release that I believe did make it in.

    Well it's easy to test, does it slow down when you run past say five NPCs in Owl's Head? I am still waiting for the game to update...very slow.

    I've complained about this a couple of times, no dev response so I assume this being forced into ineffective half-combat is a "feature".

    The interact one is OK unless they've moved the Ankhs - rez will put you on the other side of the gate.

    Forcing people into into PvP for parts of the story means you are creating bottlenecks which are ideal for camping. If I was so inclined, I'd be perma-camping those spots because I'd know that anyone who wants to do the story has to pass through there.

    If you really want to complete the story this month.
    Strip down naked, or only non coto pledge items. put everything else in the bank. Run to the entrance, if you die have your ghost run to the entrance instead.
    Bam your in, and can complete the dialog, then Exit to map and your out. The two loading screens will take longer than the run in the zone.

    Previously the work around was switch to SPO or FO, now however they've got to come up with something else.

    The real estate vendors. They are generally on the second floor of the bank.

    I like those change specialy about pvp zones ! Poeple always put pvpers into the griefers category and thats just wrong , a griefers is a greifers , he can be untag pvpand still grief , like stealing all the nods non stop while im busy killing the mobs around it laughing at me cause i cant do **** (it happen to me a lot so far in this game) , at least now in some places ill make sure he wont do that to me, unable to do anything about that kind of poeple was really disturbing to me .. my big dream would be to have a full pvp server honestly so everyone would be happy

    One important thing may be don't take it with you into a pvp zone, since I am hearing reports they can be stolen ..... putting it directly in the bank seems wise!

    Not bought one myself since I am unsure about being able to cover lot rents right now, but I've seen nothing about having to 'hand them in' anywhere so my best guess is just keep it,not clear if their automated 'raffle ticket picker' will either record who bought it or trace where the ticket is in game ... so in your bank seems wiser than a chest in your house, I suspect.

    Am I crazy or did they remove the boat connecting Elysium to Etceter?

    They renamed it. It's Ferry to Xenos now. Oops - sorry, that's the other direction. I'll check on the Elysium->Etceter one in a bit.
