    This was in the stream today at around 1h35m

    @Chris
    I think I know what was being referred to. When you talk to the Oracle in a POT, she can take a while to respond to some things.
    - open up dialog with oracle, not having done the test yet
    - click on the word "test" in her dialog
    - yes/no question comes up
    - click on yes immediately, nothing happens
    - try a few more times, it finally works

    This seems to be unrelated to how many times you try, but rather a few seconds delay from the question starting. It is also rather consistent. But it does not happen in NPC towns. I've lost out on the daily rewards a few times by quickly hitting Yes then ESC, then realizing she hadn't responded.

    This used to happen to me all the time. Now for months, I never have a problem. *shrug*

    This happens all the time across multiple characters. It has been going on for months where I have yo press "yes" or "no" several times to complete the dialogue and complete the daily.

    Its lag, if you just wait a bit, one response will work.

    The point (for me at least) is that it only happens in a POT.

    Same here. I'll have to do a film to show the problem.

    I wonder if it is possibly deco loading near the Oracle that could be causing the delay? When I am going off to speak to the Oracle daily, I do hang out near the entrance for a few minutes and then go speak to her.

    The reset for the daily test has also switched back to requiring a specific time vs just a new day

    It's midnight GMT. GMT does not follow a time change schedule. It's the same time every day.

    You're right, my bad, I recall it changing but that was when UK changes to BST.

    Yeay! This has been fixed, you can now play the game of leaving the oracle shrine before the door closes again. :)

    I believe that this delay after you click "test" is due to her conversation loading extra data and clicking extra times on her keywords is irrelevant... she'll eventually catch up regardless if you click on anything. The first time you collect loot (either as a conversation reward, from looting a corpse, gathering treasure from a chest, etc.), there's a pause in the game. There's a bug we're looking into for tackling that pause, but for now it's still there. If you want to test to see if it's that "first-time-loot" pause you're seeing, go kill and loot something (say, a rabbit) before you talk to the Oracle. Then, since you already received your first loot, I believe your Oracle test will be without notable delay.

    The reason I insist on it being only with POTs for me is that's what happens when I'm doing my "daily" logins on alts. It is never a problem when I log in to Kingsport (or other towns, at least Aerie and Etceter), already in front of the oracle, then do the test. But I can't ever remember not having the problem when I did that in Silverdale. Unfortunately the Silverdale oracle building that was convenient to me has been moved (or removed) and I don't know where it is now, so I can't test it anymore.
