    Quest issues: Basic Stores Report

    Ssoren offers the Basic Stores Report quest, but his initial dialog introducing the quest and associated lore is missing. Clicking on the quest offer link launches the lore dialog correctly. The missing dialog may not have been added to his dialog tree.

    All NPC quest dialog appears to be missing single quotation marks and apostrophies. Other punctuation appears to be missing intermittantly.

    Quest reward may need adjustment.

    Quest issues: Sand Beetle Stomp

    Ssoren offers the quest, but quest dialog cannot be triggered.

    The quest directions indicate "south of Lower Bridgeport", but there is no sand beetle spawn in that area. Directions may need to be adjusted based on new spawn placement in delta 120.

    This is true, but it still needs testing, some fixes here & there, and parts of it need lots of new work in order to be complete. One has to start picking up the pieces somewhere.

    AA0... aka GrumpyPants...

    So what?

    The point is they are skipping back a year and saying "hey this Delta went out (a long time ago) and we need feedback on it."

    That is work. That is them doing more than EI.

    well, i was on and in the middle of mining when i had a system crash. when i came back in, i was unable to login to horizons (blight) again, got the usual 'horizons.exe stopped working' error. the launchers are all under 'run as admin for all users' and all the other stuff is still in place.

    so i am thinking i am gonna have to wait for the vista patch, altho i will keep trying to log after restarts, like ann did.......

    this is all good an all but could you guys at least leave the timers on bombs and the thunder an lightning storms alone?? a lot of pleyers including myself depend on those kinda spells to hunt at all

    if i go huntin on fire isle i get 2k per kill an if i group kill i get 3-4k per kill
    if the timers were adjusted on those kinda spells i wouldnt be able to get that much xp an itd take forever to kill plus i might die more often....which isnt good,

    so please dont adjust the flame/ice/energgy bombs an thunders an lightning storms
