Section 0[edit source]

Can you say irony? ~ Idanbd 14:44, 9 December 2006 (CST)

"The bosses Eshekibeh Longneck and Moteh Thundershooter now spawn without having to complete any quests"

Yet, Eshekibeh STILL dropps the wrong green! fantastic! hahah! -TehBuG-

Now they just have to do the same with Olunoss Windwalker. -- Gordon Ecker 01:10, 9 December 2006 (CST)
And Word of Healing. -- Gordon Ecker 06:10, 9 December 2006 (CST)

Reaccepting the Eula[edit source]

I had to. Keys bought in Germany (All three campaigns), European servers. DeepSearch 00:35, 9 December 2006 (CST)

USA didn't (or at least I didn't). Possibly something to do with the Polish update? --Rainith 00:41, 9 December 2006 (CST)
Didn't have to either. American servers. — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 00:50, 9 December 2006 (CST)

Euro, I did — Skuld 03:27, 9 December 2006 (CST)

As an Australian with the European versions but on the American server, no new EULA appeared for me. -- Dashface Dashface.png 06:26, 9 December 2006 (CST)

I wish they would tell us what has changed in the EULA. There would be no point in me reading it because I don't remember exactly what the last one said.

Polish language messed up[edit source]

Actually, implemented Polish transtations make game non-playable for users in Poland. The items' descriptions in inventory are messed (eg. it says that my FDS is an... alcohol!). Well, back to English.

Careful not to burn yourself if you try to drink that FDS. ;) Sorry to hear they screwed the translation up. :( --Rainith 02:53, 9 December 2006 (CST)
I have GW uninstalled temporarily. Screens please! ^^ — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 10:27, 9 December 2006 (CST)
It says that my equipment is alcohol, too. Things are just awfully mixed up. - Lavvaran 13:05, 9 December 2006 (CST)
I got a screen srom a friend. I'll translate one piece of the armor from Polish to English for everyone to laugh :D — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 07:58, 10 December 2006 (CST)

Just checked Lyssa's Assault, now has a progression for energy gained — Skuld 13:35, 9 December 2006 (CST)

Student Sousuke[edit source]

What was changed with Student Sousuke quest? - 19:09, 9 December 2006 (CST)

New Boss?[edit source]

Some people are reporting theres a new Hill Giant boss in Kessex Peak after this update. Morg Pebblebound. A pic of him is on gameAMP posted today. Any information or Greens? I cleared Kessex Peak twice without a spawn of him - Former Ruling 01:12, 10 December 2006 (CST)

Link to pic? --Rainith 01:23, 10 December 2006 (CST)
Didn't know if I could link to things. Morg Pebblebound The picture was added yesterday apparently, and theres a thread on guru forums talking about it. It is possible he has always spawned (not 100% spawn) with the Hill Giants there in South Kessex Peak and not alot of people go over there to find him, but its hard to believe that he hasn't atleast got a page here on Wiki if anyone has met him before - Former Ruling 09:38, 10 December 2006 (CST)
Well, one trek thru there for me and no boss, doesn't mean he isn't there though. --Rainith 22:26, 10 December 2006 (CST)
I've been there several times, and I didn't remember at all seeing this boss.. I'll check this tonight.. :) Corsaire 02:25, 11 December 2006 (CST)
I went there 3 times, but that doesn't mean he isn't there, because Plog Hamfist apparently never spawned for me those 3 times either - Former Ruling 16:28, 11 December 2006 (CST)
Used to clear these giants fairly regularly (waiting for favor for FoW/UW and doing the Galrath mission with groups, then running of to solo these for runes once we killed Galrath) - there's always been the possibility of a boss Hill Giant there. However, I don't know if that's always been his name.

Delete Note?[edit source]

"Changed player controlled wurms to use Ranged attacks" - Wurms ALWAYS have had Ranged attacks. Their attack skills are all AoE or Touch range, but their normal attacks (for henchies and players alike) have forever been ranged...SO is there a point to this note? Did they actually CHANGE the way Wurms work? - Former Ruling 13:36, 10 December 2006 (CST)

Wurms attack based on your equipped weapon :/ — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 14:24, 10 December 2006 (CST)
But it is the same as before. Nothing changed?! Poke.gif Poke 15:58, 10 December 2006 (CST)
Me being a warrior, I have never seen my wurm use ranged attacks, until this update. I always hit 'c' and spacebar and I would run up close to them. Anyway, now, using the exact same weapons as before, the wurms use a ranged attack as their normal attack. --Mwpeck 19:50, 10 December 2006 (CST)
Thanks everyone for clarifying what actually changed... The note should be updated to reflect the details of what it changed, because if you just read it...Wurms always used ranged attacks lol. - Former Ruling 20:22, 10 December 2006 (CST)
Did equipping a longbow give wurms more range than they have now? -- Dashface Dashface.png 02:57, 12 December 2006 (CST)
And what about other weapon attributes like holy damage? Is it disabled now? ~idanbd 12:23, 13 December 2006 (CST)
My Dervish allways melee'd too. i remember reading in a wurm guide that the weapon you were holding when u became a wurm dictated the type of attack that was made till now i guess. sword, scythe, hammer etc was all melee. bow, wand/staff/etc was ranged. -TehBuG-

Simplified chinese[edit source]

When was the (beta) simplified Chinese localization introduced? I hadn't noticed it before, and I don't remember seeing it there when I first went to check out the Polish "translation" after this update. — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 02:12, 12 December 2006 (CST)

Nah. Beta Chinese was around a long time. Ether you missed it, or they acidentally removed it when they where adding Polish, and then fixed it. — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 05:55, 12 December 2006 (CST)
Define "long", because I fool around with the languages on my client quite frequently. — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 13:59, 12 December 2006 (CST)
I have been able to see Chinese (at least occasionally) for atleast a month, probably more. — Stylva (talk)(contribs) 14:18, 12 December 2006 (CST)
Not just Chinese, but Simplified Chinese. Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) has been around since ... well, a long time ago, but simplified is new. — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 21:21, 12 December 2006 (CST)

Melee characters controlling Junundu wurms now use ranged attacks instead of melee attacks.[edit source]

Not quite sure: with my W/N, the worm use melee attack when wielding (is the word correct?) my hammer and use a ranged attack when I switch to my bow to lure (tested yesterday, will retry tonight) Corsaire 06:59, 13 December 2006 (CST)

See the discussion already going on under "Delete Note" ~idanbd 12:16, 13 December 2006 (CST)
I've red too quickly.. my fault.. sorry.. :$ Corsaire 12:49, 13 December 2006 (CST)
I just tested this with my dervish, with a scythe and a few bows, it was the same as before although randomly when i had a melee weapon out, it would shoot a low arc projectile at the target. Im still testing it while farming but the note before just wasn't true. Xeon 08:18, 17 December 2006 (CST)
Found out what was doing the low ranged, it was my bow, changed my bow recently to composite and forgot about it. Anyway totally confirmed out of 30 in and outs while farming it never went ranged when using melee, this was done just outside the lair of the forgotten. Xeon 08:41, 17 December 2006 (CST)

Spanish translation is also meshed up.[edit source]

Polish is not the unique meshed language. The spanish language have been messed up in last patch. The words in the name of runes are in the wrong order, and in addition, the elementalist boss (Kappa) in Rhea's Crater now is named like the little crabs that inhabit in the area. --crigore
