People suggested this since they spend most of their time in Guild/ Guild Officer chat.

I like the Even channel since Global/ Guild/ Guild Officer Chat would get filled with "is the portal coming", "scroll up", "my scroll only goes back 2 minutes in chat"

Understood but why bother creating an event channel if ur going to plaster the message across all boards? Can see myself getting slightly annoyed with this one...otherwise a good update so far.

The purpose of the Events channel is so that you can easily view all events that have occurred within the last few hours. Events that have occurred hours before would have long since been scrolled off Global chat.

I like all the changes so far, but where's the "special store?"

As for the mages, lighten up. With the snapcast bug finally fixed, this patch is a net boost rather than a nerf. And if you really want to respec out of Ice Lance and Deep Freeze (which are still darn good skills; I'm happy to keep them maxed in my build), a single day's hunting should easily net you 5 shields.

The special store has limited items that will be available periodically. Those are my hints! :)

(You'll find out soon enough)

A global, limited stock market that refreshes approximately every 12 hours?
No?
Am I close?
Oh..
Darn

As long as you're in a hint-giving mood, Mike, any chance you'd be willing to elaborate on your last comment in this post? ;) I picked up some shields tonight because of the sale, but I'm not inclined to use them for energy until I know more.

The crafting/enchanting feats don't seem to be triggering retroactively? I've got several enchantments on my characters, but all of them have 0 in those feats.

Other than that, thanks for the quick work to fix all these things, they should make the game a lot better!

We will be fixing this later today.

While I appreciate the warning in all chats that a portal is 15 min out, the other World Event notices are really annoying in Guild and Officer chats.

Can we just have the "foreboding" text in all chats, and confine the other ones to Event? The warning would allow us to check Event chat if we are interested in hitting a portal. And it would not interfere with the rest of our chats if we are not interested....

Currently there are 5 messages that are being displayed per portal. We are reducing this to 1 message, when the portal actually appears. Perhaps this will make it so it's not so disruptive in the Guild channels. Other than that, we hear you, there is nothing else we can do until the next update.
