TGIF! A went and windy Friday, but brightened up by another Grab Bag!

Congrats to Fantam (1st place) and Snowdog (2nd place) on giving it all in a round of great fights during our Assassin archetype 1v1 last weekend! All fights can be watched back on our YouTube channel here. Casters feature in our next 1v1 archetpye this coming Sunday (Oct 22nd, 3PM EST/9PM CET) and there is still time to signup, for Casters and all remaining Archetypes. Our tournament page has all the details, and you can sign up here!

When do you think we’ll see the new helms teased in the newsletter?

We’ll have some new cosmetic items launching within the next couple weeks! And remember: race, gender, and name respecs will be coming early next year with transfers coming later in the year. In the meantime, if you're not signed up to our monthly newsletter, you can do so here.

What is the chance to hit a piece of armor?  My friend said it was 40% chest, 20% arms, 20% legs, 10% head, and 5% for boots/hands.  Can you comment on this?

Your friend is very close! Here are the chances for each armor slot to be hit by melee:

Chest: 40%
Legs: 25%
Arms: 15%
Head: 10%
Feet: 5%
Hands: 5%

I been taking some time to read and have found out that real-time chat.log has been disable. Is there a reason why? Can it be considered to be real-time once more? If you can have it real-time chat.log it would be great!'

Real time chat-logging is still enabled! It sounds like you may have accidentally disabled the chat logging feature though. The default key to toggle it on and off is CTRL+L. If you changed that, you can go to /keyboard and scroll down to the chat section to see the key used to toggle it.

I have several old artifacts from years back. I no longer use those since new items have changed the dynamics of templating my toons. How can we sell back our *Cloud Song, Goddess Necklace , Harpy's Feather Cloak and so on. Several items are taking up room in my personal vault and those won't allow you to put in a regular vault.

Once you have earned or purchased artifacts, they can easily be re-obtained from the Artifact Replacement NPC in the Hall of Heroes at no charge to you. Given that, if you do not wish to use them any time soon and want to remove them from your inventory, the best course of action is to destroy them (Shift+D by default).

I understand the reasoning on only allowing one char per day for the king but if you could extend this to maybe 3 it’d allow more toons to get the rewards, or increase the number of weapons that drop each run?

We will look at increasing the amount of rewards each run-through grants, thanks for the feedback!

Can you give us an idea on what we can expect with 1.125 and what’s coming next?

We’ll have a Producer’s Letter coming out in the coming weeks that will announce our upcoming plans, features, and some additional news!

Oohhh, exciting! 

'Til next time, see you in the frontiers :)
