    Customer Support for the game has impressed me mightily. There have been hitches in my ability to post to the forums and they have continued to try to resolve the issues. They asked me to try again today so here are a few small things that I quite like about the game besides the amazing players and Customer Support:

    Absolutely love kicking barrels open! It is a very fun and unique animation that continues to charm me

    I really like the bright yellow lights throughout the world and though I was originally dismissive of the Light spell - thinking of it as “the flashlight” – I now quite enjoy tossing it up and being able to clearly see in sewers, easily spot metal nodes and generally be a beacon for monsters.

    Once I figured out how to use the World Map, I was pleased with the novel feel and look of traveling around the world from that vantage -- I am not much of an explorer in MMOs so I often use it just to find something new to explore. It is far more intriguing to find a new destination on the map than to just randomly port to a city/zone.

    Are you also able to create new threads? Sounds like you cannot but maybe your main post here came in after the final fix yesterday. (Hopefully we got it this time? hehe) The fix was lost during the DB outage so it had to be reapplied. But if you cannot create new threads, please let us know at support@portalarium.com or in a PM to me. Happy forum surfing! :) And we're glad you're enjoying your time here!

    Hmm, does she or doesn't she? Inquiring minds wonder if this will still require moderation...

    OK this reply did not require moderation! Progress!

    You're adorable!

    And I'm thankful you visit the Forums. I peruse the forums regularly, and have found your posts quite informative - why just today I discovered Bard songs thanks to reading your reply helping another player - I'm now thrilling my companions with songs of mending and quickness;)

    Ahh, the Bard songs! Yes, these are quite wonderful, I use them a lot, I like them a lot! Very difficult to master, which I love!
